[3.15 PoE Build] Frost Blades Ranger (Raider)

Intro & build description

An amazing build to try once you have accumulated some currency in the upcoming Expedition League. While I wouldn’t recommend this build when starting in a new league, an experienced player can definitely pull it off. The build is definitely not a sleeper build and you will actually need to play the game and pay attention to stay alive and deal damage but it is part of the fun, to begin with.



Build Pros

  • Insane damage
  • Very fast clear speed
  • Satisfying gameplay
  • Quite tanky
  • Can do most content

Build Cons

  • This build can get quite expensive

Rare Helm

Rare helm with life and elemental resistances.


Once you acquire some currency, a great upgrade is having a helm with  ”Nearby Enemies have -% to cold resistance” mod.

Body Armour

Rare Body Armour

Rare armor with high life, elemental resistances and attacks have #% critical strike chance.


Absolutely best in slot item is Replica Farrul’s Fur but this item is very expensive.


Rare Gloves

Rare gloves with life, elemental resistances and maximum frenzy charges if you can afford such gloves.


Darkray Vectors

Amazing pair of boots that costs next to nothing. As they are very cheap to come by, I don’t recommend using any other boots for the build as a substitute as extra frenzy charge is too strong.

Left Ring

Rare Ring

Rare ring with life, elemental resistances and  flat cold damage.

Right Ring

Rare Ring

Rare ring with life, elemental resistances and Assassin’s Mark on hit. If you can afford, get the ring with  increased elemental damage or flat cold damage.

Socket the jewel next to Fervour and Heartseeker notables.
