Gameplay Loop

How It Works

This build focuses entirely on Poison Imbuement and Twisting Blades as a great way to apply it.

Because Poison Imbuement doesn't get buffed by Critical Damage and a lot of damage multipliers that affect Core Skills we have to be careful with what we use to buff it. This means we have to use Close Quarter Combat for example, which makes us have to use Puncture to proc it.
