[3.15 PoE Build] Reap Shadow (Assassin)

Intro & build description

If you like to play fast clearing casters with a similar playstyle to melee builds, Reap is an amazing skill try out in the upcoming Expedition league. While this finished build is not cheap per se, it is quite easy to farm up the necessary currency as build functions with minimal investment and scales up with the items.

Build Pros

  • Strong single and AoE damage
  • Fast clear speed
  • Fun to play
  • Quite tanky. With decent gear, build pushes ~6k-7k total hybrid life pool

Build Cons

  • Can't do elemental reflect maps

Helmet

Rare Helm

Rare helm with life and energy shield rate. Get as much elemental resistances as possible.


Body Armour

Rare Vaal Regalia

Vaal Regalia with critical strike chance or additional curse. Get as high ES and life as you can afford.

 

 


Gloves

Surgebinders

An amazing pair of gloves that synergizes well with our weapons of choice.


Boots

Rare Boots

Rare boots with high movement speed, elemental resistances and life.

Once you have currency, Tailwind boots are a great upgrade.


Left Ring

Circle of Anguish

Get a ring with increased fire damage while affected by Herald of Fire and increased buff effect. These rings can get pricy but they are just very strong damage boosters.

 

We require two of these rings.


Right Ring

Circle of Anguish

Same as the other one.  Get a ring with increased fire damage while affected by Herald of Fire and increased buff effect. These rings can get pricy but they are just very strong damage boosters.

 

Until you can afford CoA, use rare ring with life, elemental resistances and stats. Any damage mods are secondary.


Amulet

Badge of the Brotherhood

Badge of the Brotherhood is simply too strong to ignore it. Considering the price drop, I would highly suggest using the amulet over any other amulet you might have.

 


Belt

Rare Stygian Vise

Nothing fancy. Rare Stygian Vise belt for additional socket with high life and elemental resistances. If you would prefer tankier option, you can consider Crystal Belt base as well.


1Hand Weapon

Void Battery

Build uses two Void Batteries for damage. While they can be quite expensive during the first days of the new league, they drop in price quite soon.

 

For this build we require two of them as they outperform almost anything you would be able to buy at this time.


1Hand Weapon

Void Battery

Jewel

Unnatural Instinct

Socket the jewel next to Instability notable.


Jewel

Glorious Vanity

Socket the jewel next to Melding notable to acquire Corrupted Soul keystone.


Jewel

Watcher's Eye

Physical damage converted to fire damage while affected by Anger.

If you can afford, get  critical multiplier or increased damage while affected by Anger as well.


Jewel

  1. Increased maximum life
  2. Critical strike multiplier
  3. Critical strike multiplier while dual wielding
  4. Area damage
