[PoE 3.10 Build] Elemental Hit Duelist (Slayer)

Intro & build description

If you wish to try out a non-standard bow build, you have come to the right place. With 3.7 league,  Slayer was reworked and it allowed for some interesting builds to be made using Slayer ascendancy. Thanks to ”Overwhelm” which sets base critical strike chance for any weapon at 8 %, we can push slayers critical strike chance pretty high using any weapon.

Build Pros

  • Easy to play
  • Very strong damage for very low investment
  • Damage scales insanely well
  • Very fun build to breeze through content
  • Well balanced damage and defense

Build Cons

  • Elemental reflect maps are no-go

Passive tree(s)

Belt

Belt of the Deceiver

Very useful belt. Offers both defense and offense. You take 30% reduced Extra Damage from Critical Strikes as well as intimidate nearby enemies making them take increased attack damage.


2Hand Weapon

Rare Bow

Elemental Hit scales from gem levels, best weapon base for this build would be Thicket Bow as it has fast attack speed. We are looking for gem levels on the bow, +3 would be ultimate endgame goal.


Quiver

Drillneck

Very strong quiver. If you wish, you can use well rolled rare quiver as well, but I highly recommend using Drillneck for extra pierce.


Jewel

Combat Focus (Crimson)

Elemental Hit cannot choose Cold. Makes Elemental Hit pick fire 100% of the time.


Jewel
