[3.7] KINETIC BLAST/BARRAGE Le "Wander" has arrived DEADEYE (2019 Edition) Build > UBER ELDER down!

Kinetic Blast has been nerfed twice. First time in 3.4 when it got less area
damage and explosions were changed to prevent shotgunning near walls. And then in 3.7 when abyssal jewels were all lowered down by at least 30%.
So what's the state of KB Wanders now? I must say i devled quite deep into the build to answer the question. And the short answer is: still viable. Still doing the job. Still expensive. Still needs barrage for Uber Elder. Still ridiculous aoe which one shots everything offscreen, still insanely fun!
The goal of the build was to create a TANKY, HIGH dps character capable to do ALL content, and not just silly currency farming. The basic goal was to achieve at least 1 million shaper dps on KB, but eventually i surpassed it and now sitting on 2 millions KB dps as well as almost 5 million for Barrage.

How does it work, in general?
Most of the time you run around throwing Kinetic Blasts and it does the job. For super tough bosses you will be using a 6L Barrage in a separate chest to effectively WIPE THEM OUT IN SECONDS.
======================================================================================
1) PROS
Spoiler

+extremely large AOE and fantastic clear speed, far beyond Tornado Shot and everything else combined
+Plenty of DPS. Does not really need Barrage except for Uber Elder (i killed Shaper and all shaper/elder guardians with KB)
+cheaper than Physical Wanders
+can switch to MF in a blink of an eye

======================================================================================
2) CONS
Spoiler

-Expensive to min-max (my investment was around 50 EX)
-Needs 188-212 int (achieved through the tree progression though as you level up)
-squishy, super hard to reach 6k life. Mostly dodge and Warlord's Mark to survive.
-you will be playing Ice Shot/Lightning Arrow/Tornado Shot till 80+ before your KB gains enough strength

3) Skill Tree Progression / Path of Building / Ascendancy / Bandits
Spoiler
Path of building:
Basic Tree https://pastebin.com/Gim9Uvgg
Alternative Tree (500+ more life and a simulated Timeless Jewel): https://pastebin.com/msFJekBK
For Ascendancy: Gathering Winds, Rupture, Fast and Deadly, Powerful Precision
Bandits: Kill All / Alira

======================================================================================
4) Early Levelling Gear / Skills
Spoiler

Get a 6L Silverbranch if possible. You can later upgrade it to Silverbough at level 36.
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Silverbranch
Lioneye's Glare 6L is also 1 ex, so this will be your end-game bow for a while. If you have Windripper you can use it too.





Hyrri's Bite can be also upgrdaded to Demise at level 45:
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Hyrri%27s_Demise
You will be playing with Bow skill for a while, before your KB gains strength.
Take Ice Shot and use it in this combo:
Ice Shot - Pierce - Volley support
Puncture and Burning Arrow are also great for single target
Switch to Lightning Arrow later. Take Precision
Assuming Tabula: 6L Lightning Arrow - Added Cold - Added Lightning - Pierce - Mirage Archer - Ele.damage with attacks.
Add Herald of Ice and Thunder when available.
Add Barrage when it's available (lvl.12):
6L Barrage - Added Cold - Ele damage with attacks - Vicious projectiles - Elemental focus (need to get it from another character or buy) - Volley
At level 31 get Cold Penetration and switch Volley to Slower.Projectiles

======================================================================================
5) My Actual Gear / End-Game Skills
Spoiler




For Uber Lab enchant: Kinetic Blast has a 75% Chance for an Additional Explosion (mapping) / Barrage Fires an Additional Projectile (Shaper/Uber Elder/Bosses)
KB 5L (Shroud) Mapping: Kinetic Blast-Ele.Damage.with.Attacks-Hypothermia-Inc.Critical.Damage/Energy.Leech-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles
KB 5L (Shroud) Bossing: Kinetic Blast-Ele.Damage.with.Attacks-Hypothermia-Inc.Critical.Damage/Energy.Leech-Slower.Projectiles
Barrage 5L (Shroud) Bossing: Barrage-Ele.Damage.with.Attacks-Elemental.Focus-Inc.Critical.Damage-Energy.Leech
For the gear i would prioritize:
1) Tabula Rasa and any levelling gear
2) lvl.5: Karui Ward
3) lvl.10: Hyrri's Bite
4) lvl.12: Storm Prison (if you want to play Wands early)
5) lvl.20: Berek's Pass (insane damage early on!)
6) lvl.25: Prismweave
7) lvl.32: Sacrificial Heart
8) lvl.36: Silverbough / Doomfletch / Death's Opus
9) lvl.66: Lioneye's Glare / Windripper

======================================================================================
6) Flasks
Spoiler


You can also use Diamond Flask instead of Wise Oak, as well as Cinderswallow urn if you have fire source of damage somewhere. As well as Vessel of Vinktar, although i don't like to be shocked! :)

======================================================================================
7) Pantheon Gods
Spoiler

Major: Arakaali
Minor: Ryslatha

======================================================================================
8) Hardcore Viable or not?
Spoiler

Not

======================================================================================
9) FOR THE RICH GUYS
Spoiler

A lot of things here. Triple Wrath jewels, Precision / 2x Wrath, +2 Shroud, Corrupted Gear, Essence Crafted GG ELE Wand, GG Phys Wand, GG Shield, GG Assasin's Mark / Warlord's Mark Opal rings. Plenty of Stretch goals.

FAQ
1) Can i use Barrage and Kinetic Blast both?
Spoiler

You can indeed. Check Path of Building for skill gem setups!
There are 3 options here:
1) Shaper lvl.83+ Gripped Gloves with Slower Projectiles
2) Thunderfist https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Thunderfist
3) Shaper lvl.80+ Helm with Hypothermia (make sure you don't use Elemental Focus with Hypothermia!)

2) What is better, Physical or Ele Wanders?
Spoiler

Ele Wanders are cheaper and more flexible (you can use 1c weapon), while Physical are way more expensive, but do more damage.

4) Why do you have 2 path of building links? What's the difference?
Spoiler

The first one is what most Wanders use. It's pretty standard and generic.
The second is an alternative variant and is more about stacking abyssal jewels and using Unnatural Instinct. It gives more toughness and slighly less damage, also more problematical to gain Intelligence. I had to go this route to use my Timeless jewel with 240% increased projectile damage and 80% crit chance.

5) I die all the time!
Spoiler
Level up, stack life jewels, use Warlord's Mark. I would consider this build a squishy one, but not SO SQUISHY. I delved just fine ibto 300+ and farmed endless T16 maps without dying

6) How i can craft the most insane Ele Wand?
Spoiler

1) Get a level 85 Shaper Imbued Wand
2) Throw Deafening Essence of Warth till you see 20% Elemental Damage as Extra Chaos Damage (or something very useful like 40% ele damage) + Lightning Roll
3) Multimod the rest

just wanted to stop by and say I appreciate all the work you put into these builds/guides.

Wander has always been my favorite build, but the nerfs scared me out of making one this league.

Think Ill follow your guide and make one. Gonna level with RoA though with the sexy celestial mtx.

Once again thanks.

You are welcome! KB is probably my favourite mapping skill right now. It just blows everything by a mile. Also really cool for monoliths.
