[PoB 3.3 Elemental Build ] Endgame viable, Barrage & Tornado Shot Totems – Shaper Down!

I wanted to share my Ranged Attack Totem build since I don’t see any RAT makes around. I’m still entirely new (Beastiary is the first league I’m playing, but I was playing Standard during Abyss)

I am at present level 91 with the build and read maps are pretty easy which includes bosses. I did beat red Elder, all Guardians and Shaper together with the create. Hydra, Chimera, and Shaper are genuinely easy as you may have numerous Movespeed and can focus on dodging though your totems shoot. Minotaur and Phoenix had been somewhat more robust, but I guess with far better gear/more skill they really should be just as easy. I did not record the shaper fight, but I only died as soon as a consequence of putting an anomaly in the Zana safe zone…

 

NO.1 General/Mechanics

We use Ranged Attack Totems with Barrage and Tornado Shot. The Lioneyes Glare bow tends to make it impossible to miss and to scale our harm we convert all the things to cold with Hrimsorrow and passive nodes. We pick up Elemental Overload considering that we do not have sufficient points/room to scale crit correctly. Due to the fact we can always place our totems up close to the enemy, we get the point blank.

Defensively we use Thoughts over Matter to mitigate harm. The Hierophant ascendancy is excellent, due to the fact we get a more totem and much more MoM. As second ascendancy we select pathfinder to sustain wellness and mana. Considering that with symbols we don’t have any leech or achieve on hit, we have to depend on flasks. We also throw in Acrobatics because we path along there anyway.

Inside the tree, we pick up totem, flask, life and elemental damage nodes.

 

NO.2 Pros and Cons

Pros:

+ Basic gear is very cheap (works on five-link)

+ Can do any map mod

+ Totems do all the damage so you can focus on dodging/surviving

+ Good evident and single target damage

Cons:

– Lategame gear gets a little more expensive

– Slower mapping due to using totems

– Can be kind of hard to level

 

NO.3 Playstyle

Place your totems and spam all your flasks. With the movement speed from boots, helmet, and Rotgut you are pretty fast and need to use Blink Arrow only for obstacles or if you are stuck. Because of the ascendancy and all the flask notes from the tree, you should have charged all the time.

Make sure your mana stays as full as possible. Since we have a pretty small life pool, we heavily rely on MoM. Concentrate on dodging attacks and projectiles while your totems clean up. Don’t forget to occasionally throw in an Orb of Storms and some Frenzy Shots to increase your Damage.

If you can’t defeat a boss because your totems die, try placing them differently. Place one to the left and one to the right, so they cant be attacked at the same time or place all 4 in front of the enemy and then blink arrow behind them and replace two totems there.

Use tornado shot for clearing and place a barrage totem if there are some stricter mobs like red beasts. Use barrage against bosses without ads. When they spawn ads, use one or two tornadoes shot symbols. Always place the symbols next to the boss, so you get the maximum Point Blank bonus. If the boss moves, replace the totems.

 

NO.4 Leveling

I’d rather not use this construct as starter create as it could be fantastic to possess some funds and items to create leveling less painful.

For the initial acts, you could just run with a self-cast split arrow and self-cast barrage till you attain ~level 20 from where on you can use Skirmish and switch to totem only by skilling Ancestral Bond. Just begin working with the gems from the gem section as soon as you can.

Utilizing a Quillin and Tabula makes early game a lot much easier/faster. Whenever you feel like not doing adequate harm any longer get an inexpensive 5 or six link bow from PoE.Trade (Filter by bob plus a minimum of five links, put the maximum you wish to commit (e.g., 10c) and sort by DPS).

Choose up Rain of Splinter ASAP and watch out to have a single with low lowered damage. Whenever you obtain Skirmish, pick a single up using the other arrow corruption as they’re quite inexpensive.

Important for leveling:

– When you did not play totems just before: Their overall health scales with their level. So you should get started leveling your symbols as quickly as you possibly can and also you want to level four of them. When your RAT gems attain level 20, and you wish to upgrade them to 20% high quality, and you do not possess a second set of level 19/20 totems as a backup you will have a negative time since the scale one symbol die promptly. Of course, you may often invest in a high level/quantity gem.

– Our tree starts out with only STR, and INT nodes and all our treasures need DEX. This can be a challenge you have to perform about by either getting gear which has plenty of dexes or skilling some dex within the tree that you later on the refund (there are two +30 nodes close for the nodes we choose anyway). I just applied Astramentis.

Mainly because of lack of sex you want to do your initially three labs ASAP so you may get started skilling dex inside the Ranger part of the tree. The significant factor is, using the totems the labs are elementary and also you can do them way before reaching the advised level. When you are performing the labs at the levels you might be supposed to; you may have some spare skill points given that you already filled out the left on the tree. Either maintain the extra points or spec whatever you feel like and refund later.

 

NO.5 Pantheon

Soul of Ryslatha for more life recovery from flasks.

Soul of Solaris for more defense. (Don’t need Brine King because Kiaras Determination makes us stun immune.)

 

NO.6 Map Mods

As pointed out you can play any map mod, but watch out for elemental reflect and additional monster projectiles. The mirror is annoying because your totems one shot themselves. You can still play it, but you will be continually placing symbols. The additional monster projectiles are hard because your totems will get killed vs. certain mobs before being able to do anything. Try putting them more spread out or spam them till the monsters slowly die.

Proximity shields can be a real pain if the mob that has it moves around quickly.
