BUILD

INFORMATION

This is a Deadeye based build focusing the Skill Ice Shot. How about shattering several enemies in one single shot? That's what this build is and I'm sure you're going to enjoy it.

  • Safe Ranged Attacks

  • Awesome Single Target Damage

Cons

  • Evasion Dependent

  • Vulnerable to Physical Damage

  • Not so Cheap

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- Hyrri's Ire Is the best body armour for this build, it grants up to 145 – 200 Cold Damage to bow attacks, a lot of evasion and 10% chance to dodge attacks and spells.
  • BOW
- Death's Opus is mandatory for this build because it provides 2 additional arrows, 50% increased critical multiplier, 50% increased critical chance and 10% increased attack speed.
- Another mandatory bow is the Chin Sol. This one is for single target damage. keep it as your secondary weapon (press "X" to swap weapons)
  • QUIVER
- Voidfletcher is so mandatory that you need two. One for each weapon setup. This Quiver grants a lot of extra damage, making not only an awesome single target damage but an awesome clear speed as well. But you can optimize your damage with the right corrupted versions. For Clear Speed I recommend one with added cold damage with bow attacks. For Single Target I Highly Highly Highly recommend you to get one with Point Blank.

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.
