PoE Punishment Build Guide

PoE Punishment 3.12

PoE Heist has reworked the Punishment Punishment Skill so that it now causes enemies to take increased damage while they are on low life and explode with overkill damage when they die.

PoE Punishment 3.12

  • Base duration is (9-10.9) seconds
  • Cursed enemies grant (25-35)% more Melee Physical Damage on Melee hit
  • Cursed enemies grant (10-19)% increased Attack Speed on Melee hit
  • Buff is applied for a Base Duration of (9-10.9) seconds
  • Cursed enemies have -20% to Physical Damage Reduction
  • +(0-10) to radius

Skill Functions and Interactions

  • Punishment Punishment can be turned into an aura by linking it with either Blasphemy Support Blasphemy Support or Awakened Blasphemy Support Awakened Blasphemy Support.
  • Punishment Punishment and the Punisher buff interact normally with curse effect. Both the duration and magnitude of the Punisher buff are affected by it.
  • As the curse requires a “melee hit” in order to apply the buff, the hit can be blocked and still provide the buff application.
  • When linked with Cast When Damage Taken Support, if the hit that triggered the curse was a melee hit, the buff effect from Punishment Punishment will be applied instantly.
