nGAire's Paradoxica Double Strike Champion - Maps Into Endgame on a Budget

This guide is a work-in progress, please be patient as I fully flesh out the guide.

Welcome to the guide, exile!

This build was my second build in 3.5's Betrayal League, after a failed attempt at Deadeye Lancing Steel. I happened upon the unique Vaal Rapier 'Paradoxica' and was consumed by ways I could maximize the damage scaling.


This build is centred around the unique sword 'Paradoxica' and scaling initial flat damage in order to be doubled in end calculations. This build can be done on a fairly low budget < 1ex and can scale way up to demolish all content.

On less than a 1 ex budget, able to get to over 2 million Shaper DPS.

Looks cool, Can you post some videos?
I can't figure out where the Paradoxica Vaal Rapier comes from.

Edit: Figured it out, well that's an issue. Can the already unveiled versions be rerolled?

Are there any different weapons options in the mean time? Thanks!
