In Scourge, Champion ascendancy has more defense mechanisms, which is very suitable for league starter. This PoE 3.16 Scourge Duelist Toxic Rain Champion Builds is starter viable which means you can make it work with less than amazing gear. Therefore, it's cheap. However, TR is not necessarily cheap to scale fully into endgame in a trade league.

Gems Setup

TR Ballista 6L ON BOW: Toxic Rain - Ballista Totem - (A) Viscious Projectiles - (A) Swift Affliction - Empower or Efficacy - Concentrated Effect

TR selfcast 6L ON CHEST: 3 options

Gear Setup

Early Levelling Gear / Skills

For Ballista: Toxic Rain - Ballista Totem - Vicious Projectiles - Swift Affliction.

For Selfcast: Toxic Rain - Lifetap - Vicious Projectiles - Mirage Archer

Leveling Uniques for those with access to them:

Bows: Quill Rain. A six Link Quill Rain can take you well into endgame if you so choose

Quiver: Skirmish

For all other gear, focus on resistances, attack speed, and DoT/DoT Multiwhere applicable. 

Endgame Gear


+34% to Damage over Time Multiplier
+1 to Level of Socketed Gems
18% increased Attack Speed
Can have up to 3 Crafted Modifiers
+2 to Level of Socketed Support Gems
+39% to Chaos Damage over Time Multiplier

This bow is no longer possible as of 3.15 as of the DoT Multi being moved to a Suffix. As a result, it is easier to craft a really good bow and will probably be harder to craft an amazing bow.


Use a 3-socket resonator socketed with a Metallic Fossil, Prismatic Fossil, and Corroded Fossil. It usually takes just a few times to hit +3, but you may want to reroll a couple times to get a secondary mod that's helpful. Both Attack Speed and DoT Multi are useful mods, everything else is secondary or useless.
