Poe 3.22 Caustic Arrow Pathfinder Currency Budget and Endgame Versions Build Guides

In the ever-evolving world of Path of Exile, finding a reliable and versatile build can be a daunting task. However, if you're looking for a build that offers excellent damage, flexibility, and the ability to tackle both budget and endgame content, you're in the right place. This guide will walk you through a popular PoE build that has gained popularity for its effectiveness and versatility. Whether you're new to the game or a seasoned player, this build has something to offer. We'll cover both the budget and endgame versions, along with essential tips and upgrades.

Budget Version Overview

Before we dive into the specifics of this PoE build, it's crucial to understand the budget version and why it's a great choice for players looking to make their mark without breaking the bank.

PoB Link

Budget Version Highlights:

Offers excellent damage output.

Suitable for players on a tight budget.

Fully functional and tested by multiple players on stream.

Helmets and Corruptions

One of the key components of this build is the helmet, specifically the "Whispers of Doom" helmet. This helmet provides a significant boost to damage, life, movement speed, skill effect duration, and more. It's superior to a "+1 to Socketed Gems" helmet, assuming you have other sources of +levels. Crafting this helmet is essential, and you can find a crafting guide in the provided YouTube link.

Helmet Corruptions:

+2 levels to Socketed Gems

+2 levels to Socketed Duration Gems

+2 levels to Socketed Area of Effect Gems

+1 additional Socketed Gem

Any of these corruptions are acceptable; choose the most cost-effective option.

Chest and Color Sockets

The chest piece you'll want for this build is one with five green sockets and one red socket. To achieve this, you'll need to use Chromatic Orbs. The optimal setup is five green and one red socket, but if you have a +2 levels chest, you can replace one green socket with a blue one by removing Empower or Efficacy. While this results in a 133% DPS loss, it's still viable.

Boots and Avoiding Stun

Boots that provide a chance to avoid stun are essential for this build. Stun immunity is crucial for survivability, so don't skimp on this aspect. You can either find boots with a chance to avoid stun or use a Lab Runner to help you obtain them. An additional corruption option for your boots is either movement speed or a chance to suppress spell damage.

Amulet - Replica Dragon Fang

Replica Dragon Fang is a mandatory component for both the budget and endgame versions of this build. It significantly boosts your damage and enhances Mana reservation efficiency. Don't skip this item, even though it may be one of the more expensive pieces.

Aventail and Belt

For Aventail and Belt, prioritize life and a reasonable amount of Rarity. Depending on your budget, these items can range from moderately priced to more expensive. Aim for around 40+ life and 8-9% Quantity, and fill out the rest as needed.

Quivers and Flasks

For quivers, you can use either Bisos or Sten visce. Sten visce allows you to deal with Corrupted Blood. Make sure to copy the flask setup precisely, including Reduced Mana Cost of Attacks and Increased Effect.


Quicksilver Flask: Prioritize movement speed unless you feel squishy, in which case you can opt for evasion.

Gold Flask: While not mandatory, it offers Rarity but can be replaced with other options if desired.

Diamond Flask: Highly recommended for critical strike builds.

Quartz Flask: Eventually, you can replace this with Progenesis or swap it with the Gold Flask if you prefer.

Eternal Life Flask: Provides essential sustain during combat.

Passive Tree and Clusters

Prioritize dexterity nodes for movement speed.

Grab all the intelligence nodes for extra defense.

Avoid investing in Rarity nodes, as they don't provide significant benefits.

Focus on getting the following medium clusters: Brute Opponency and St for Decay, which are essential for early chaos resistance.

Upgrade Priority List

PR Genesis: This is the highest priority upgrade, as it fixes your chaos resistance and significantly increases your effective hit points (EHP).

Level 4 Runed Dread Banner: Boosts your evasion significantly, providing better survivability.

21/20 Al Dhih Arrow: A relatively affordable upgrade that offers a solid damage boost.

Watcher's Eye: Look for a Watcher's Eye that provides Onslaught, Phasing, and Suppression to maintain critical buffs.

Herald of Thunder: While not massive, it improves your speed and defense.

+4 Chest and Quant Amulet: These upgrades can be quite expensive but provide substantial benefits.

Forbidden Shako or Self-Flagellation Jewel: Depending on your preference and budget, these upgrades can enhance your damage output.

Pantheon and Gem Setup

Use Lunaris or Solaris for the major god and Shakari for the minor god. Ensure your Shakari is corrupted.

Detailed gem setups can be found in the provided Path of Building link.

Act 5 is a crucial stage in your journey, and understanding resistance and gearing up properly will significantly enhance your character's survivability. Understanding Resistances: Resistances are vital in Path of Exile as they reduce the damage taken from elemental sources. There are three main elemental resistances: fire, cold, and lightning.

You can obtain resistances through gear, and it's recommended to use a crafting bench in your Hideout to further enhance your gear's resistances. Pressing "Alt" on an item will show you it

Guides for New Elements of Magic in the New World

Are you a New World player looking for more magical options in the game? In this guide article, we'll dive deeper into the potential for new elements of magic in the New World. Currently, the game has four elemental magic types: fire, ice, void (or darkness), and life (or light). However, many players are hoping for more elemental options, such as lightning, air, water, and time magic. These could be introduced through new weapons dedicated to these elements or by revisiting how existing weapons work.
