Leveling Tips
Spoiler

Try to get some of these items if you can, it will make leveling so much easier. If you can't get these items or it's the start of a league, just ignore this.
- [CHEST]Tabula Rasa (can be used at lvl 1)
- [HELM] Goldrim (can be used at lvl 1)
- [BOOTS] Wanderlust (can be used at lvl 1)
- [GLOVES] Hrimsorrow
- [WEAPON] The Screaming Eagle Jade Hatchet
- [WEAPON] Brightbeak
- [WEAPON] Redbeak (can be used at lvl 1)
- [BELT] Prismweave or Belt of the Deceiver

Level 1 - Get either frost blades and use it with ancestral call at level 4. If you have no items like tabula or any items for that matter, then look for movement speed boots at the vendors. Try to find 1h weapons with either or both flat physical damage and increased physical damage (att speed is good too, but not at the cost of the others) Rings, amulets, gloves with phys damage to attacks, maximum life and resistances.
Level 12 - Now you can get Reave and start leveling with that
Try to cap fire res, or any res for that matter, perhaps save rings with high resistances and switch on boss fights.
Once Brutus is dead, pick up Added Fire Support and Leap Slam.
If you want you can pick up Sunder after killing Merveil, but you can still use frost blades, Reave for a while if you so desire.
Pick up Faster attacks and link it with Leap Slam, take Herald of Ice and Blood Rage. (Don't level Blood Rage past lvl 10)
Level 24 - Get Warlord's Mark and at level 31, link it with Blasphemy support
Level 28 - Get Blade Flurry and start using that
Do Lab as soon as you have the hp and damage for it
Get Immortal call,Cast when Damage Taken and Stone Golem when you are near the completion of act 4.
Link these gems at the end of act 4
When you can, get fortify and link it with leap slam and faster attacks.
You should probably use Blade Flurry once you got good enough gear to progress through the acts and start mapping, Reave simply cannot compete at this point if you don't have good enough gear.

Make sure not to get one shot and keep your resistances high, at this point you can probably use 1 life flask, 2 quicksilver and 2 mana flasks or switch out 1 mana for hp flask.


What to look for when upgrading gear
Spoiler
When you are upgrading your gear, you primarily want to look for these things.

Defensive affixes
Always prioritize maximum life, this above anything
Resistances
Armor or Evasion

Offensive affixes
Flat Added Physical damage
Attack speed

Flasks
Atziri's Promise
Lion's Roar
Taste of Hate


Remember to follow Mathil, he streams on Twitch often and posts videos on YouTube regularly.

how do you sustain mana with this build?
I appreciate you writing this out but just so you know multistrike does not work with blade flurry.
So while you are using dual scaeva it's recommended you use brutality according to PoB since they are physical.

Roll physical damage leeched as mana on gloves, that's what Mathil responded on his stream.

has PoB been updated for it?
Is this a better version of the Slayer Reave/BF build on the forums?

From what i've seen there is apparently 2 different versions of the PoB. The link that is provided above goes to a different skill tree layout and skill gems, than if you follow the PoB link straight from Mathil's youtube video/forum build. I'm not sure which one is the most up to date version. So far i've been following this one. But i'm only lvl 33.

I'm jus following his character's tree imported into PoB.

He also took 2 skillpoints from the bandits instead of Alira it seems?
