Venom Gyre is an attack-based skill that deals physical and chaos damage through projectiles. It has a unique mechanic of returning projectiles that can be caught and shot out again for additional damage. The guide emphasizes the end-game scaling potential of the build, which can be enhanced through the addition of the Evolve Item that cancels out one of the nerfs the build indirectly received from the Nightblade Ascendancy.

The most important ascendancy points to take for this build are Tailwind, Ricochet, Endless Munitions, and Focal Point. Tailwind provides a global action speed buff that is beneficial to the Poisonous Concoction skill. Ricochet grants +1 chain, which is useful for clearing maps. Endless Munitions increases your damage output, while Focal Point increases the effect of your marks.
Venom Gyre is the main skill for this build. It works similarly to Spectral Throw, where you throw blades that return to you. Rolling Blades is used to increase damage output and mobility. Use Rolling Blades when your blade count is near 30 to achieve a shotgunning effect on bosses and clear maps faster.
Use Ancestral Protector totem and Berserk when you get 50 Rage (if you're using the Unique Rage variant). This will increase your clear speed, survivability, and damage output.
This build is not as tanky as a Juggernaut Reave build. However, it has good damage output due to its flat elemental damage, elemental damage percent, and attack speed from jewelry, weapons, and jewels. Aim for 100% Critical Strike chance with Nightblade and up to 700% Critical Strike Multiplier.
Use Soul of the Brine King for stun avoidance and Soul of Lunaris for physical damage reduction, reduced elemental damage taken, and 10% chance to avoid projectiles.
Use nodes that reduce physical damage taken so you don't die to chaos damage. You can also use the node that reduces effective shock if you don't have ailment immunity. You can get ailment immunity through boot implicit, shield crafting, or by taking a node on the tree.
The skill tree is divided into two variants: the no-unique variant and the rare-unique variant. The no-unique variant provides a general guideline of what to aim for, as some of the rare uniques can be expensive. The main difference between the two variants is the accuracy nodes on the no-unique variant.
For the skill tree, start with the claw masteries to get a 40% multiplier for skills supported by Nightblade. Take life nodes, another Claw Mastery, and Spell Suppression clusters to get a 250 aura easily. Take crit nodes, accuracy nodes to get a 100% chance to hit, and more elemental damage nodes. The Crit nodes and Point Blank nodes give you a 30% more damage multiplier.
For the rare-unique variant, take the other accuracy cluster if needed to reach 100% chance to hit. You can also take Strength nodes, if needed. Transition to a cluster setup that is much more powerful. This setup consists of Feed the Fury, Marshall, and extra accuracy nodes and clusters for increased damage. Take Feed the Fury, Marshall of Prowess, and Fuel the Fight for leech, and then use cluster jewels to stack crit multi. Use auras of Wrath and Anger, Precision, and eventually Determination as your defensive auras.
For the skills, we use Whirling Blades and Cast on Flame Wall Tornado for the shotgunning effect. We also use Flame Wall for extra flat damage. We use Berserk, Blood Rage, and Enlighten for buffs, and then Mark on Hit with Sniper's Mark and Enhance for scaling. Our main scaling is Venom Jars, Nightblade, Fork, and Trinity. We can also swap in Elemental Damage with Attacks and Added Cold/Lightning Damage depending on our gear.
