[PoE 3.23] Spectral Shield Throw of Shattering Trickster Build: Fantastic Speed

Hello there, PoE fanatics! Today we shall discuss the Spectral Shield Throw gem as a trickster with the Eternity Shroud twist. In terms of single-target DPS, this build provides a decent clear speed but doesn’t go beyond "pretty okay".  It's not about being the best in the world, it's about the visceral pleasure of throwing shields and hearing them crunch. So let's see how you can make it work for you even though it might not be as powerful as it was during its Crucible League days.

 


[PoE 3.23] Spectral Shield Throw of Shattering Trickster Build: Fantastic Speed

 

The Build Essence (Evasion & Chaos Damage)

  • Core Concept: This build is focused on evasion scaling on your shield that is then converted to flat cold damage.
  • Eternity Shroud Trick: Chaos damage done through shaped gear. The main thing? Every piece of equipment should be shaped in order to bypass chaos resistance.

 

The Gear (Crafting and Scaling)

  • Shield: Aims for high evasion (around 1300) and some energy shield. Dense fossils are your go-to for crafting.
  • Armor: All energy shield gear works here. Put on eternity shroud for that chaos damage bonus.
  • Weapon: It's a stat stick – Elemental attack damage and chaos damage is what you're looking for.

 

PoE 3.23 Spectral Shield Throw Trickster Build Passive Tree and Gear Up

 

Skill Gems

  • Main Attack: Spectral Shield Throw w/ Fork, Return Projectiles, Cold to Fire, Inspiration & Critical Damage Support gems.
  • Wither Totem Setup: For boosting your chaos damage.
  • Utility and Movement: Frostblink, Herald of Ice, Shield Charge, Grace, Haste – all these skills boost mobility or provide buffs to characters.

 

Ascendancy and Passive Tree

  • Trickster Perks: Evasion, energy shield and critical strike chance are what to pursue.
  • Passive Skills: Aim for leech damage, more crit and try to fill out with a cluster jewel that gives it a little something extra.
  • Unique Charm Strategy: The other option is to put non chaos as extra chaos in the charm slot.

 

Playstyle and Performance

  • Clear Speed: Spectral Shield Throw has excellent clear speed, especially when combined with Fork and Return Projectiles.
  • Single-Target DPS: This is where the build falls short. While good, it lacks the firepower required for high-tier bosses.
  • Survivability: This CI Trickster build gives you some evasion and on kill ES recharge.

 

If you're looking to be PoE Captain America with bouncing shields off enemies, this build could be fun. If however you are looking for top tier dps and boss melting capabilities then look no further. It’s all about the journey rather than the destination of this build. Nevertheless, through proper adjustments and a little bit of investment, this PoE Spectral Shield Throw Trickster can become your trusted friend during your adventures!
