Im currently farming Shaped Burial Chambers, looking for any advice for gear upgrades that are worth getting while farming for Headhunter. Im thinking a Kinetic blast helm enchant, and probably a 2nd Ventors. while I could afford a 6l I feel its probably overkill for now given the content I'm running.

I also had two Lycosidae's drop today, thoughts on it vs Esh's mirror?



Any advice is welcome.


Seems really good to me.
KB enchant is not really needed, the difference in actual damage is negligible, and, as you said, for the content you are running a 6link is not needed at all. I would definitely invest into a second Ventor's Gamble, IIQ is never too much.
The flaw I can see is that, with flasks, you are barely at 30k evasion, so you are actually sacrificing more than 30% movement speed.
About Lycosidae, I do not really see any reason to use it. With your setup you are sitting at 91% chance to hit, which is already good enough and I don't think you will ever find yourself in the situation "oh.. I really wish I'd never missed that attack". The damage provided by Esh's is just way too powerful while clearing with a good pace.
You also do not have any additional source of accuracy (except the wand), but with an amulet with some accuracy or being a Deadeye (which gives 200 accuracy) you would push your chance to hit towards the 93-94% mark. That's pretty much as good as it can get.
Moreover Esh's Mirror provides some INT, higher amount of life and a lot of lightning resistance.



First off, thanks for the advice.

How would I get enough evasion while running full mf gear? Do I replace a flask with the second type of evasion flask and if so, which one?

Also, I swapped to Pathfinder after I got my Dying Sun earlier in the league, do you recommend switching back to Deadeye, and wouldn't losing flask effectiveness on the Evasion and Quicksilver flask make it worse compared to Pathfinder?

I think Pathfinder is as good as Deadeye at this moment, for this specific setup (while it's way stronger for pure damage builds).
The class choice is not a big deal, the speed you can achieve is pretty much the same, since Pathfinder has flask effectivness, while Deadeye has Tailwind (Deadeye can get faster that pathfinder though, if you have many "stacks" of Tailwind).
To achieve higher evasion you can use a stibnite flask (I would drop the Atziri's Promise), use abyssal jewels similar to the ones I linked in the gear section (%evasion while moving), take passives that grant a lot of evasion or use Grace (instead of wrath, for the contents you are running you should not even notice the loss of damage).

I honestly do not see any real reason to pick Raider, it's always been a "budget" Pathfinder, since he provides some damage and speed, but it's outclassed pretty hard by pathfinder on the utility side.
The choice at this point is between pathfinder and deadeye, I discussed it a bit the Ascendency section. They are both really good option and, after playing both classes, I cannot really decide which one I prefer.

This build is cancer to lvl, thats for sure. Lets hope it's worth it
Im running this build for a few days now and its absolutely nuts. The only downside is a lack of free flask mods so i die to every other freezing strongbox, but thats not a big deal. Probably can be solved with a pathfinder ascendancy (or a cast on death+portal link) but i really like the new deadeye.
Shaped burials are breeze even with my shitty jewels, as well as any maps up to tier 16. Also managed to fit in an inspired learing, sometimes it feels pretty nice and motivates for getting a hh, but a regular abyss jewel might be better.
Here is my current gear, just got this neck for my final mf piece and didnt decide what should i aim for next. I dont feel like i need more damage right now, so maybe i'll start to save up for my first hh, but any advice would help.
And yeah, thank you kindly for sharing that build.

I would recommend aiming for headhunter given your current gear, but if you want to keep putting that off, you could consider getting a helm enchant, or a better rolled/culling strike Piscators.


I finished farming for headhunter this past weekend, planning to finally pick up that 6l QotF along with replacing my Spinefuse with perhaps a 10% quant one in the short term, and a Shaped amulet in the long term. Also suspect my Jewels need upgrading, still using selfcrafted ones.

Yeah, freeze strongboxes are pretty annoying. The good thing is that if you run with a party (or an aurabot) you can ask them to open the boxes, so you have no problem about it.
Talking about upgrades, HH is probably the best upgrade you can invest into. Having said that, I do not really find it that necessary, even more if you play solo most of the time.

Loving the build, fun to play, insane in maps. But I struggle insanely hard time with rare mobs. I like to mf run breachstones, every packs melts in one shot. but rare are almost impossible to kill, even with barrier 6l.

How can I make this build more viable to mf farm breachstones? I like to know if there is a solution for me to kill rares alone or necessary to have a boss killer with me. right now all i can do is skip rares.

What should i try to upgrade right now, i have all gems lvl 21, very good stats on all items. Is it worth changing belt to something else?

Finally got a hh this morning and yep, its not necessary (for burials). I've already had enough damage even with bisco's, and in some cases hh actually feels slower. But hey, just the fact i have it makes me happy.
Now i'm planning to either get a 6l KB setup and try to run harder content (maybe shaped vaults/6 ppl breaches) or reroll to a windripper for even more quant.
