Intro & build description
Very captivating gameplay, running through maps very quickly shattering screens of monsters while doing insane amounts of damage to single target encounters as well. This build is kind of low maintenance to breeze through maps because we only use 1 type of skill (Frenzy) for clearing and single target, which means we can use Kaom’s Heart to boost our life pretty high considering we use 4 uniques without any life on them.
- Very budget-friendly to start with
- Fast and satisfying gameplay
- 5.5-6k life
- 50% chance to evade attacks, 50% chance to dodge attacks and 30% chance to dodge spells
- Insane damage
- Scales exceptionally well with currency investment
- Can't do elemental reflect maps

Rare helm with some accuracy, high life and elemental resistances.
Body ArmourKaom's Heart
Greatly inceases our survivability due to lots of uniques used in the build without any life on them. Alternatively you can use any rare chest/Belly of the Beast.
Rare gloves with intelligence, decent life and some elemental resistances.
Darkray Vectors are simply too good to pass for Raider ascendancy. Use rare boots with high MS, life and elemental resistances before you get your hands on Vectors.
Pyre is used to convert most of the cold damage to fire. Required to make this build to work.
Right RingRare Ring
We need lots of accuracy, find ring with at least 400+ accuracy, decent life and elemental resistances. Intelligence is a welcome bonus.
Xoph’s Blood is one of the core uniques. Avatar of Fire is key to this build. Won’t be the same w/o it. All of the other stats are useful for us.
BeltRare Stygian Vise
Rare stygian vise belt with decent life, elemental resistances. Preferably try to get your hands on belt with life, elemental resistances and elemental damage with attacks.
2Hand WeaponDeath's Opus
Death’s Opus is great bow for + 2 projectiles alone so we don’t have to run GMP/LMP.
Voidfletcher is kind of expensive, but you get what you pay for. It is insanely strong item and it is preferred not to have corrupted version because we need that extra pierce.
Perfect watchers eye for this build would be:
”% Increased Cold damage while affected by hatred”
”Damage penetrates % fire resistance while affected by anger”
Intuitive leap is great if it is socketed in jewel slot next to ”Heartseeker” and ”Survivalist” notables.
Lioneye’s Fall is expensive but it is insanely strong if socketed in jewel slot next to Acrobatics keystone. You can take advantage of ”Soul Raker” and ‘”Claws of the hawk” notables insanely boosting bow critical strike chance and multiplier as well as life and mana leech.
