PoE 3.3 Shadow Assassin Builds

NO.1 [PoE 3.3 Build] Cheap Looks Nice and Tanky Assassin With Acid Molten Strike
Ancestral Contact is still a very superior single target gem for those who use it correctly. By moving just slightly bit away out of your target, you'll be able to lead to your personal along with the clones' balls to overlap for basically double damage. Should you choose to swap it out, use Harm on Full Life? Melee Physical damage only impacts your initial hit which can be almost useless because we're scaling the projectiles.

PoE 3.3 Changes:
Not a good deal of adjustments surprisingly.

+ Looks nice
+ Mostly cheap
+ You can tell everyone you did Shaper with less than 10k tooltip DPS
+ Can do every map mod, doesn't rely on leech or regen
+ melts bosses
+ Tanky, can face tank most of the game with the right gear
+ Vaal Pact nostalgia (high-speed life recovery)
+ Slows down enemies a lot

-Some BiS items are expensive
-Destroys your GPU as well as GGG's servers
-Not HC-viable due to lag combined with risky playstyle
-Extremely backloaded damage
-No one will want to play with you
-Not the fastest evident speed, but Frost Blades can help out with that (check videos)

Bandits: Kill all

Major God: Soul of the Brine King is essential, as getting stunned is a significant weakness/annoyance.

Normal Lab: Noxious Strike -> Cruel Lab: Toxic Delivery -> Merc Lab: Unstable Infusion -> Eternal Lab: Deadly Infusion


Leveling Guides:
Leveling is easy if you have enough currency to spare for uniques. With Thief's Torment, it's almost impossible to die during the second half of the story.
This Build highly recommends a Tabula Rasa, as the build benefits a lot from gem links.
Lycosidae can be equipped at level 11, in case you can already afford it.
Molten Strike is available very early, use the support gems from the build section as you acquire them.
Try to keep your chance to poison at 80% or more, use Lesser Poison or Poison support gems if you have to.
Your poison will take some time to deal good damage, but it should be noticeable after the first Labyrinth.
Unique Weapons you can use during leveling:
Redbeak (level 1)
Wildslash (level 12)
Al Dhih (level 26)
Mortem Morsu (level 34)
After that, Added Chaos Damage support should provide enough damage until you get a Wasp Nest.
If you find a rare claw with good physical/chaos DPS, you can also use it instead of a unique.

NO.2 [PoE 3.3 Build] Great damage, especially single target Dark Pact-Skeletons Assassin Build With CoC and Poet's Pen
This build went untouched inside the Poe 3.3 Patch Notes and is excellent to go. It looks just like the meta will revolve around a few of the revamped skills, so count on everything within this build to remain low-cost and below the radar, which includes Essences of Worry and Gloomfang. The only pricy items are going to be your Poet's Pens.
The build has lost the Aspect on the Spider gloves given that Bestiary was not added for the core game. A well-rolled pair of different gloves will be a perfect replacement as it will help with filling out resists and making sure you might be at the attack speed breakpoint for the Poet's Pens.
This Build also intrigued by the Mask with the Stitched Demon. This can be a new Incursion exclusive that applies Strength's life bonus to Intelligence as well as offers 1% Life Regeneration per 500 Maximum ES. This is such an incredible defensive boon for "top in the tree" builds and unquestionably worth considering for this build in Incursion league. The downside of losing mana from Intelligence poses no problem because this can be a Poet's Pen build. All of that being said, we've no concept how uncommon it will be - hopefully it will likely be ordinarily accessible. 

+ Great damage, especially single target - but also good at mapping.
+ Chaos damage cannot be reflected.
+ Scales damage in a fresh way and uses off-meta skill gems and gear.
+ Fairly cheap to get going, but also very fun to sink currency into essence crafting and min-maxing.
+ Great build for those who like to create their gear, but want to avoid expensive meta crafting.
+ The Skeletons are so tanky that they double as meat shields and bosses will often focus on them.
+ Doesn't use Watcher's Eye, stat sticks or any of the other metal gear that's incredibly expensive these days.

- Can only achieve 5k-6k life.
- Not HC viable due to Assassin ascendancy and deep life pool.
- Has to use Flame Dash as its mobility skill.
- Must be careful with hexproof mobs and reduced curse effectiveness map mods.
- Cannot be built as CI or LL due to Gloomfang.

Ascendancy Points: 
Opportunistic -> Ambush and Assassinate -> Unstable Infusion ->Deadly Infusion.

Bandit: Alira 

Leveling Guides:
This was my league starter so leveled it without the need of utilizing the Pens. You can level with whatever spell you would like till Dark Pact is offered, then level into the tree shared above applying self-cast Dark Pact. Our Gamer transitioned into the final build as soon as Our Gamer was capable of buying my two Pens. This had the small impact on the tree - it just meant that Our Gamer could begin taking the minion life nodes and after that ultimately build into the energy charges.
If leveling the build with Pens, use whatever two spells you consider would be the most fun and away you go. Do not feel going Dark Pact/Summon Skeletons are going to be incredibly quick at low levels so Our Gamer would encourage additional regular leveling spells alternatively.

NO.3 [PoE 3.3 Build] 500K DPS Frostblades Assassin Build with Budget gear
This Build is for individuals who want a league starter or who do not have a lot of currency in-order to farm out enormous amounts of PoE Currency. This build farmed me a headhunter last league in 1 and half weeks.
The build does 500K+ DPS using a 35C Spending budget. You may go more affordable (15c or decrease) and get about 400K DPS. Also, you may notice the touch of anguish in the Path of constructing. These are just the optimal weapons. It is possible to use two wasp nest and get by just fine effortlessly. This build is all about making it function with fundamentally zero currency.

Poe 3.3 Changes
Not substantially changed with our build, which is impressive since we have been currently insanely powerful.

Bandits: Take Alira

These are highly situational and entirely dependent on what you need for your current gear.

Leveling Guides:
Recommend to take Ewar's Mirage in your main hand. This is a budget Touch of anguish. In your off hand ideally, you want a great Phys foil. An example of a large Phys foil is Daresso's passion.
Another is, of course, the classic's which are Goldrim, Wanderlust boots, and Prismweave belt are the main ones that come to mind. Keep in mind that these will be reasonably expensive early on in the league. I made use of rares Our Gamer found and made it to endgame just fine. Just be wary that you will need to farm for your gear sometimes before facing a boss.

NO.4 [PoE 3.3 Build] Fast clear League Starter Assassin Build With Frost Blades
This build utilizes Assassin as a natural means of damage and essential strike reliability to produce Frost Blades feel good, the shattering screen just after a screening of monsters. Molten Strike creates an easy technique to clear pesky rares and bosses. Because the build primarily focuses on the projectile and elemental harm, Molten Strike benefits from 90% on the tree. 
Our Gamer planned the tree and gear around points uncomplicated to acquire in an SFF atmosphere; that becoming said, it'll be super straightforward to purchase this stuff in trade league. You would not grind Prisoner's Gate for The Wolverine divination card for corrupted claws in hopes for any Touch of Anguish, or craft your self a rare; or scour the ground to get a right claw.
Our Gamer played a build similar to this within the recent Flashback event in SSFHC and got hooked on Frost Blades. Because then, I've wanted to revisit the skill and give it appropriate time and craft it up from the bottom to the leading. Felt like Our Gamer did not have enough time inside the Flashback even to push a different character, and Our Gamer might've gotten burned out and disappointed within the skill, not because of the predicament Our Gamer was in.

+ Fast clear
+ Shattering
+ Corpse Removal
+ Aesthetically pleasing
+ Easy to reach a comfortable mapping state
+ Requires just Merc Lab to start shattering everything
+ Uber Lab not required for the build to feel amazing

- Takes a bit of time to setup
- Levels faster as Sunder
- Single target requires a unique or elder helmet to shine(Doable without one, though)
- Can't push late game bosses without significant investment
- Requires levels and decent rares(or Kaom's Roots) to force life to a comfortable level

Bandits: take Alira

Major- Lunaris(Helps evade projectiles if improved, and suitable for physical damage reduction)
Minor- Shakari(Chaos mitigation. Improved is slightly awkward to obtain (T13 Map)

Unstable Infusion - Ambush and Assassinate - Deadly Infusion
