[3.5] SPECTRAL SHIELD THROW DeadEye (100% phys and 90% ELE. 1,5-2M DPS REALISTIC GEAR non-crit!)

Hey guys!

Hello guys! I already quitted Bestiary league but wanted to finalize the build for everyone to mess around and use! The numbers are fine from 1.5 million with 10 chaos shield to about 2 million with 10 exalt shield.
With over 10+ active builds it is becoming hard to keep up with replies and comments, so make sure you follow me on discord, twitter and more importantly = twitch to ask for anything!

VIDEO BUILD/GUIDE: https://youtu.be/0QV1apY2m2s


1) Good clearspeed when you get that last Chain from Ascendancy
2) Good toughness for mapping and against many bosses (high ES and block)
3) Cheap (and by cheap i mean you can do red maps in 20-30c gear)


1)People complain that it's slow for levelling. Well of cause there are MANY skills that can do it faster. I had no dramatic problems during levelling at all.
2)Boss damage is mediocre. And mobile bosses who relocate can be a bitch to kill. Shield projectile speed is still pretty slow even with investment.
3) 2100 armour shields with LIFE are hard to buy and craft.

The first version is almost 100% pure phys sclaing version with potentially changing to Slayer for leech or Duelist (for bleeds).
Phys version has better leech, but less life.
PoB: https://pastebin.com/xc9B1tuw
2 Chains. 6500 life.

FOR 5L: Drop Added Fire

The second version base skill tree is not entirely mine, but i added items and extra nodes. It is a 90% phys to ele conversion with further ELE damage scaling (much like classic Frost Blades build). Elemental Overload is there and we have a trick to proc it very often as well.
PoB: https://pastebin.com/zAKGTCjj
3 chains. 7200 life.

For 5L: Drop Maim

UPDATE 09/03/2018: Filled all link slots. Added Vaal Lightning Trap as well as tricky setup with CWDT Ice Spear to keep up the buff of Elemental Overload (for ELE version only). Added Enlighten for auras, this way we can have over 150 free mana to spam Shield even with insane Attack Speed and Tailwind Buffs. Switched to ELE on Attacks Steel Rings as they give slightly more DPS that flat phys rings (for ELE build). Dropped Obscurantis for Starkonja with +40 damage enchant. This is WAY MORE realistic because getting Obscurantis with Shield enchant is nearly impossible. Almost noone enchants Obscurantis, but it's still GG for damage if you ever find it.
Dropped Shield Charge for Whirling Blades.
Also i went with attack speed over projectile damage very early on the way Ballistic Mastery. A little more DPS and more speed for Whirling Blades.
Inserted magic Onslaught flask.
I also added Empower to a 4l setup with Golem and Protector, this is more towards a very end-game setup.
Overall everything is done here and what is left is mostly min-maxing rings, boots, resists and such. The best DPS increase would be crafting lvl84 shield with Essence of Dread. This is it. For a non-crit build reaching 1.4 million seems good TBH.
UPDATE 04/03/2018: Added Frost Bomb debuff on CWDT, Ancestral Protector, Frenzy Charges and Blood Rage as well as Lightning Golem. Added crit flask to Phys Setup. Switched gloves to Winds of Change.
UPDATE 03/03/2018: Added Projectile Weakness to both and Hrimsorrow (to ele version). 20 quality gems.
UPDATE 02/03/2018: Skill Gems arrived in PoB!

Phys is 1M+ per base and ele = 1,5 million (1 million without Elemental Overloard).

This is a generic "mapping" DPS here, for bosses it will be lower because.. resists and curse immunity.

BANDITS: Oak gives around 3% more damage while KILL ALL -2 level requirement to reach end-game nodes. I would go with passives if it's hard for you to reach 90+
ASCENDANCY: Far Shot-> Gathering Winds -> Richochet-> Fast and deadly.


Frost Blades till you get SST as a reward for defeated Merveil in Act1.
3L SST: SST-Onslaught-Maim/Pierce
4L SST: SST-Onslaught-Maim-Vicious Projectiles Support
is really good.
buckler starting from level 16:

and so on.

END GAME shield crafted with Essence of Dread 2800+ armour:

Level HAKU as fast as possible to craft armour shields!
Buy Hrimsorrow gloves early on.

This is just a small demo of SST in action in T7 Underground River map, so that you will have an understanding what to expect in mid/game. My gear is still very basic and uber lab not done.

Going to try this out in the new league.

Cant find a better spectral shield throw build atm.

IGN: MR_Bladefall
This looks really promising actually.
Far better than what I was trying to craft so far on the fly. Might give this a shot aswell
Hey guys!
This will be a placeholder for now as there is no real skill gem in PoB yet.
I theorycrafted Spectral Shield Throw DeadEye.
The first version is a 100% pure phys version with potentially changing to Slayer for leech or Duelist (for bleeds). It is a pure non-crit version.
PoB: https://pastebin.com/TJQaxEiM
4 Chains. 6k life.

The second version base skill tree is not entirely mine, but i added items and extra nodes. It is a 90% phys to ele conversion with further ELE damage scaling (much like classic Frost Blades build). Elemental Overload is there for now, but crit chance is low so i am still undecided if it's worth it or not.
Also has over 7k life as it goes to life wheel. More "crit" oriented as well.
PoB: https://pastebin.com/mxfyfPs8
5 chains. 7k life.

Both versions look ok for now but PoBs will be altered once actual skill gem arrives.

PoB update incoming...

I will wait for an update.

The 2nd tree is from TarkeCAT right?
What are you guys going to do ?... Phys or ele.. ?

I'm gonna try ele conversion. Still at work, I don't have access to PoB, so I don't know if this is close to what I have in mind.
the 2nd tree does more than double the sheet dps

which one would be better suited for budget gear aka leaguestarter?

I think the ele one will be stronger, especially with the shaped items. Can't look yet unfortunately. What's PoB like right now?
I changed the elemental build:

Going crit, effective 59% with crit potion up - throwing out farshot / chain stuff taking the crit nodes instead.

It has the same DPS with the same equip, but 5 points left( I have set only 108 points) and a much wider equipment range. It will be more powerfull with real crit equip, giving + crit + crit damage and last but not least a shaper stat stick weapon with 60%+ added elemental damage.

I think this is more flexible as league starter or even SSF, since you need really nothing special but generic equip.

I'm almost thinking playing this as assasin for round about the same damage,
+ Crit can not be reflected, no crits from bosses without adds -> less "sudden death"
- Accuracy problems - deadeye can has enough accuracy from skilltree
