BLEEDING FLICKER STRIKE

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Slayer based build focusing on the skill Flicker Strike. Kill your enemies so fast the you won't be able to see. A very fun build, but may cause seizures and eye cancer.

Pros

  • Awesome Clear Speed

  • Awesome Single Target Damage

  • Super Fun

  • Great Movement Speed

Cons

  • Evasion Dependent

  • Many Mandatory Uniques

  • Stays too Close to enemies

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- The best body armour for this build would be an Elder one with a lot of life, and more critical strike chance for attacks. Examples here.
- As a budget option I recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
  • SWORD
- I recommend Starforge, it has up to 723 physical DPS, 20% area of effect and up to 100 life. This Sword is the best for this build, but it's expensive.
- Don't worry, you can use Doomsower as budget alternative until you get yours.
  • HELMET
- Use a rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- You'll need Haemophilia for this build. These gloves not only grant 25% chance to inflict bleeding on hit and 40% increased damage against bleeding enemies, but they also make bleeding enemies explode increasing even more your clear speed.
  • BOOTS
- The Red Trail are mandatory here. These boots sustain our Flicker Strike because they grant: “Gain a Frenzy Charge on Hit while Bleeding”. They also grant up to 70 Life and 40% Movement Speed.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​An Essence Worm ring is mandotory, so we can use the Pride Aura without sacrificing a huge amount of mana.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare ring with Life, Resistances and Intelligence. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare amulet with life, Intelligence and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here.
- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- 1 Stibnite Flask for evasion boost and blind source for your enemies. Examples here.
- A Lion's Roar to boost your armour and melee physical damage.
  • ENCHANTMENTS
- ​Helmet: 40% Increased Flicker Strike Damage
- Gloves: Of Fury
- Boots: Attack and Cast Speed
P.S. Enchantments are not super important, so don't feel bad if you don't have the right ones ;)

THIS BUILD'S FAQ
  • Is there a good place to buy unique items?
- Not only for unique items, poe.trade or pathofexile.com/trade are great websites for trading your items.
  • I'm lvl 40 and I'm dying a lot, what can I do?
- Please take a look at your Elemental Resistances, they are really important for your survivability. After lvl 40 try to keep at least 50% of each. The meximum is 75%, try to reach that when on end game.
  • I don't have as much HP as the gameplay shows and I've followed the Skill Tree step by step. Can you help me?
- Look for more HP at your rare gear. You can have ''+89 to maximum life'' on your helmet for instance.
  • You say the build is cheap, but there are some expensive recommended items there. How?
- Those items are only recommended and not mandatory for this build to work. Maximize a build with the best possible items and 6 Linkeds takes a good amount of currency. Start using 4 Linkeds on low tier maps in order to farm currency to upgrade your gear.
