REAVE FLURRY

BUILD

INFORMATION

This is an Ascendant based build mixing Slayer with Raider and focusing on the Skill Reave. This is a very powerfull build that can easily do every content in the game and it's easy to play. It's perfect for you that want to finish all challenges before the League ends.

Pros

  • Cheap

  • Easy to play

  • Ultra High DPS

  • League starter and finisher

  • Great Clear Speed

Cons

  • Abyssus is Highly Recommended (up to 50% more damage taken)

EQUIPMENT
  • BODY ARMOUR
- I recommend a Belly of The Beast, it provides up to 40% increased maximum life and 15% to all elemental resistances.
- A Lightning Coil is also an awesome choice because it provides "30% of physical damage taken as lightning damage" It helps to endure the extra damage taken because of Abyssus.   
- ​You can also use a rare body armour with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • MAIN HAND SWORD
- ​A rare Jewelled Foill with at least 300 physical dps and attack speed. Examples here.
- A great budget alternative is to use a Ahn's Might that can reach 354 physical DPS, 25% critical chance and 500 accuracy rate.
  • OFF-HAND WEAPON
- ​The best choice here would be a Rigwald's Savagery, it provides 40% increased physical damage while dual wielding, 15% attack speed and 35% attack speed with swords. Unfortunately it is very rare and expensive these days.
- Don't worry because I have a great budget alternative for you! It is the Death's Hand that provides 50% increased critical chance, power charges and Unholy Might.
  • HELMET
​Abyssus is for sure the best helmet for this build, it increases your damage by a LOT. The downside is that you take up to 50% more physical damage while wearing it.
- ​A rare helmet with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • GLOVES
- ​Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BOOTS
- ​Rare boots with movement speed, life, elemental resistances and armour. Examples here.
  • BELT
- ​A rare belt with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #1
- ​A rare Steel Ring with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • RING #2
- ​A rare Steel Ring with life and elemental resistances. Examples here.
  • AMULET
- A rare Amulet with life, elemental resistances and physical damage added to attacks. Examples here.
  • FLASKS
- ​Divine Life Flasks. Look for mods like ''instant recovery'', ''removes bleeding'' and ''removes freeze''. Examples here and here.
- Diamond Flask for more critical strikes. Look for mods like "increased duration" and "increased armour during flask effect". Examples here.
- The good old Atziri's Promise for a big boost to your damage and life leech. 
- A Lion's Roar to boost your armour and melee physical damage.
- Rumis's Concoction as a defensive flask to boost your armour and block chance.

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.
  • How are you generating Frenzy Charges?
- Blood Rage provides 25% chance to gaing a Frenzy Charge on kill. 
  • How can I get the best effective DPS for Blade Flurry?
- Hold Blade Flurry until you get 6 stacks, then release the button.
  • Why Immortal Call if you don't generate endurance charges?
- Endurance charges are not mandatory for Immortal Call to work, they just make it last longer. 
  • Why Cast When Damage Taken  at level 1 and Immortal Call at level 3?
- Cast When Damage Taken can only support spell gems that have the same required level or lower.  At level 1 the required level of Cast When Damage Taken is 38, the same as Immortal Call at level 3. 
  • Cast When Damage Taken cannot trigger Vaal skills, why do you put them on the same setup?
- Vaal Haste is not there to be triggered by Cast When Damage Taken, but to be supported by Increased Duration.
