PoE: Are You Confusing To Choose Three Step Assault Or Atziri’s Step

Path of Exile

In Path of Exile, if you are making a raider build and you are trying to figure out if three step assault are items that’s usable for endgame, is it? Or is atziri’s step better.

Pretty simple – if you take Raider’s Onslaught line, then Three-step Assault is better. If not, then Atziri’s Step is better. Is the 100% evasion rating global is better than the 180% evasion rating local I guess?

This will depend on the amount of evasion you have on your gear unfortunately. If you don’t have a lot of evasion on gear and wearing something like a Belly of the Beast, Atziri’s Step will give you more evasion than a Three-Step. You can test it out on path of building.

If you’re taking the Raider’s Onslaught passives and don’t have a lot of evasion, then you’re doing something seriously wrong – 25% more chance to evade is huge and it gets better and better the more evasion you have (with 76% chance to evade, it gets boosted to the evasion cap of 95%). That’s why I said it’s a no-brainer for an Onslaught Raider build – that 100% global boost more than makes up for the lower local evasion rating.

In the past, when the bonus was only 40%, it was closer, but now, you would have to have a very low base evasion value or a very high evasion% rating for Atiziri’s Step to give you more than Three-Step when Onslaught is active.

For example, in a build with 2000 base evasion (basically, Three-Step, your LV bonus, and a mediocre evasion body armour with no other evasion gear), you’d need over 310% increased evasion rating for Atziri’s Step to give you more evasion.

So any build that uses Grace automatically gets enough evasion that Three – Step will result in more total evasion if you can reliably keep Onslaught up. Hopefully the above guide will be helpful to you.
