[3.5] Fire Elemental Hit Deadeye - Budget - Endgame - UPDATED

3.5 Notes
"
Chin Sol now deals 50% (down from 100%) more damage with Arrow Hits at close range and has 200-260% (up from 150-180%) increased physical damage.
(phys dmg doesn't matter; 100%->50% results in 25% less damage vs. monsters next to you (close range). Check out: https://i.imgur.com/a3qLi5s.jpg

Possible Ele Hit setups:

1. Chin Sol + Frostferno:
- 4-L EH in Frostferno vs. bosses
- 5-L or 6-L EH in Chin Sol or chest for AoE
- you may use a +2 or +3 bow for your AoE setup in your other weapon set

2. Chin Sol + Starkonja:
- 6-L EH in Chin Sol or chest vs. bosses
- 5-L or 6-L EH in Chin Sol or chest for AoE
- you may only use one 6-L and swap gems vs. bosses
- you may use a +2 or +3 bow for your AoE setup in your other weapon set

3. +3 Bow + Starkonja ("cheap" +3 Imperial Bow with just +3, crit and crafted attack speed)
- 6-L EH in bow vs. bosses
- 5-L or 6-L EH in chest for AoE OR swap gems vs. bosses
- if you swap gems, you always benefit from +3 bow skills

4. Chin Sol + Corrupted +2 Frostferno:
- 4-L EH in Frostferno vs. bosses
- 5-L or 6-L EH in Chin Sol or chest for AoE
- you may use a +2 or +3 bow for your AoE setup in your other weapon set

1 = cheap / starter setup
2 = if you don't have Frostferno
3 = recommended setup
4 = highest dps (close range)

You may use Rat's Nest or Devoto's Devotion instead of Starkonja (or any other helmet with whatever stats you prefer...). I prefer Starkonja.

DPS comparison (good gear, lvl 99):

Note: Number in "( )" means projectile travel distance = 30 units; The 'Close Range' modifier applies to monsters within distance of 20 units; check out https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Distance and https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Chin_Sol for further information

1. Chin Sol, Frostferno, 2x The Taming, lvl 21 EH, Xoph's:

2,426,xxx (1,185,xxx)

2. 6L Chin Sol, Starkonja with 15% EH attack speed, The Taming + Pyre, lvl 21 EH, lvl 4 Emp, Xoph's:

2,607,xxx (1,275,xxx)

3. 6L +3 Imperial Bow with crit and attack speed, Starkonja with 15% EH attack speed, The Taming + Pyre, lvl 21 EH, lvl 4 Emp, Xoph's:

2,749,xxx (2,015,xxx)

4. Chin Sol, Corrupted +2 Frostferno, 2x The Taming, lvl 21 EH, Xoph's:

2,951,xxx (1,441,xxx)

Setup 3 clearly wins if you are not in close range.

Combat Focus now causes Elemental Hit to deal 50% less damage of the prevented element, including damage that gets converted from the prevented element to a new element. This affects all existing versions of the jewel.

Wouldn't this build without Lioneye's be objectively better? PoB: https://pastebin.com/cHaFYrwm

I just copied one of your jewels over, obviously you'd have to buy another one, but this build has more DPS, more life and more life leech as well as scaling into high resist maps better. What's the point of Lioneye's in the build?


He is not wrong, but:

- the difference is very small
- you have to skill a mana leech node: if you remove a dmg node in favour of a mana leech node, it's less dps; if you remove a life node in favour of a mana leech node, he's right
- you have to replace Lioneye's Fall with a DECENT jewel
- less crit chance

I prefer Soul Raker because of the crit chance.

If you don't have a lot of currency / or low level, rather not use Soul Raker + Lioneye's Fall.

For atziri instead of respec'ing out of chain you can use your 6L instead of the 4L and put pierce in instead of faster attacks.

I just wanted to thank 99prosorc for this build. It let me do many things I had never done before - easiest Shaper ever, HoGM, Vaal Temple, full atlas unlock... the only things left are Chayula, Uber Elder and Uber Atziri.

I'm running a slightly different version based on tips from other people in this thread - I have wrist issues so the less I move my hands, the better. So I'm running Haste with Blasphemy+Enfeeble, no Blood Rage, and no Quill Rain swapping, just a 6L Chin Sol. Less dps and clearing speed then, but more survivability and less keys to press.

Thanks again, 99prosorc :)

99prosorc - Thanks so much for the guide.

I have played POE for many years on and off.

This was the first time I have successfully killed The Shaper!!! One Death, only because I didn't get my positioning correct! My damage was incredible. 4-9 hits for 33% of his HP. So really about 2.5 seconds to do that much damage is insane.

Additionally, my clear speed on T15's is unparalleled.

Thanks for the great guide. That kill felt amazing.

Cheers!

Not yet.
Nice build. Think im gonna give it a go, got like 20ex to dump into it. You tried uber elder yet? Seems like it'd definitely be doable. Also would you mind to set your profile to public so I can see your character?

Yes it can do Uber Elder. I just added a PoB of my current gear etc. (5,5kk Shaper dps).

Thanks for the POB link
For leveling/before I can afford a Xoph, should I just rush to Avatar of Fire as fast as I can?

Or just level with maybe like lightning arrow, and path to AoF reasonably (so get it at like level 70 or something)?

And what do you think about using Chin Sol for single target and when mapping use something like the Tempest instead for the APS?
Trying this in HC. Going for more life. How would you level into this? Use EH asap with Quil Rain - tabula etc. levelling gear uniques of course.

As far as the passive tree for levelling?
Any leveling priority on the tree?
