My first build. I really wanted to play something with Explosive Arrow except traps. Found some dude on poe ninja builds 2nd day into league and I took it, worked on it and here are the results.
The general idea is to die less and still do respectable dps.
Current investment is around 50ex which 30% of that being the bottled faith lol.
Pro's & Con's
+ Good ST nuke. 30M dps at 20 fuses. We use divergent EA so its really 24 fuses.
+ Quite good clear. I would rate 4/5
+ League starter!
+ Tanky (100% spell suppression, 19k armor, 34k evansion, ghost shroud, 3 endu, defiance banner, consecration ground, 4.6k hp 700 ES)
+ Crazy attack speed.
+ Can do most map mods (ele reflect kills ballista and cannot leech is annoying)
+ Can do mostly all content (Killed everything except Maven, The Feared, Uber Atziri)
+ Destroy corpses
+ Culling Strike
+ Perma Onslaught
+ Perma Phasing
+ Endu, Power and Frenzy charges
– EA cant chain, fork, pierce. Bricks the build.
– There is a ramp up before we start doing max dps so high movement bosses sucks
– Lower clear speed than other bow skill builds
– Still cant tank shaper slam and heavy physical attacks
– Couldn't get past 24 Simu wave. Not enough dps.
There are 2 milestones when starting with the build.
1.) Death's Opus +
+ Iron_Reflexes Keystone
2.) Empower +
3.) Enlighten + Cluster Jewels
At step 3 we drop Iron Reflexes and go for Grace + Anger + Defiance Banner + Determination route.
Until you get on rings “Non-channeling skils have -7 to Total mana cost”
get lifetap support linked in Asenath's Chant otherwise you will mana starve.
Not sure what to put there after that step, didn't reach it yet 🙂 maybe Tornado?
