[3.8] Pure Phys BV | Lab Runner

Welcome Exiles to my 3.8 version for Blade Vortex
_________________________________________________________________________

Pro's & Con's

+ 5,000+ Life
+ Can clear Uber Lab on a 2L
+ Can clear maps with relative speed
+ Cheap to start, scales well with gear
+ Can be used as a league starter

- It's Blade Vortex, so mapping is wonky
- Pathfinder is becoming less effective
- No Herald of Ice explosions :(
- 5 off colour QOTF

Overview of build

I've enjoyed using Blade Vortex for lab running for many years, slowly over time I've become less enthusiastic about running the usual Elemental BV build and with Blight league the Cold Iron Point dagger was released so I decided to try something new! As always Pathfinder is an amazing choice for Lab running due to all the Flask nodes so there's no reason to move to a new Ascendancy just yet.

Hey trying out this build now, any leveling tips would help :)
I like this build a lot and am considering this for my 3.9 league starter.

Tweaking the tree slightly, you can get more str and int to take advantage of the Tactician belt. I also picked up Master of Force and dropped Melding since you're taking Acrobatics. You can end up with +17% damage, +5% crit, +80 ehp, while sacrificing 1 radius, 2% evasion, and 6% ms.

Here's the pob for that: https://pastebin.com/uDrQPrGC

Hi thanks for enjoying it :), I didn't notice the lack of hitting tactician tbh, though when I ran the build myself I'm sure I hit it just forgot to tweak PoB to reflect that

Hi sir, i'm really interested in your's build variation in terms of 3.9 league start and it will be great if you post at least quick levelling notes, cz i just respeced my lvl 96 ranger and i cant kill even lvl 67 mobs, though the gear and gemlinks should be okay xD ty!

I'll be adding that just before league start (Busy with Uni at the moment)

thanks for the repliy, w8ing for updates! D
Btw, while testing i've noticed that getting 10 stacks may become quite tricky cause of lack of unreserved mana, so i hope that you also make this more clear before the league starts ;)
I believe the mana problem is solved with an enduring hybrid flask.
