I would personally swap out the position of Qin's Sais and that of Stone Cutting Sword. Stone Cutting Sword will be more beneficial to you early game as the movement speed helps to close distances between you and your prey much quickly, the high power is nice for increasing the damage of Venomous Bite and also your basic attacks, and the flat armor reduction it gives is really helpful early on since you will be able to deal close to true damage to your opponents. Qin's Sais on the other hand is slightly more expensive and a bit harder to build into as a second item, and also won't be providing you with as much damage as you would hope since 1) Qin's Sais passive works better with more attack speed and penetration you have which Arachne will not have any of at this point and 2) The passive of Qin's Sais won't be dealing as much damage either early on since it scales off a target's maximum health and most of your targets will have low health, resulting in low early damage. Later on into the game, you will get more benefit from Qin's Sais as you will already have more attack speed and penetration into your build and you will get more value from the passive as every god will have more health at this point.

Appreciate the feedback! :)

That is probably the correct thing to do, but I have not really done much more than play the game since Stone Cutting Sword was put into the game. So I have never taken the time to actually test it properly.

Movement speed as you mentioned is Alpha and Omega (that is why I love Talaria Boots).

But I have never liked getting a late Qin's Sais, because as you mentioned it is expensive and tier 1 and 2 are useless. So in the early game where Arachne is a powerhouse even without items is in my opinion a good time to get it out of the way. But most of all because even though the proc deals more damage late game and with more attack speed, you are you are going to have a much harder time to actually proc it (unless you manage to catch someone 1v1). This especially goes for Arachne ( Kali, Bakasura can get away with it more easily).

I also mentioned that you should think about getting The Executioner as your third item, which will make Qin's Sais a lot better as your second item. But I probably should have made that more clear in the text.

But even without The Executioner as your third item you will get enough procs from Qin's Sais due to the Web and Cocoon to make it extremely powerful in the early and mid game.

But Stone Cutting Sword might just be better. I will try it out some time.
