[0.10.0] Eldritch Battery Ethereal Knives Shadow [Videos Included]

Trying to figure out if Marauder or Shadow makes for a better EK build. Oh well guess I will just play both.

Here is my passive skill build:

By itself the passive skill tree does not provide enugh dexterity for Bear Trap; the rest comes from gear. If you are finding it infeasible to use bear trap, my advice would be not to level it until you can meet the dex requirements.
Hey guys, i'm looking to build a EK character and i'm sure it's been asked many times Shadow or Marauder? I'm gonna start it on default so i think i wouldn't have to be TOO tanky.. but just wondering, how squishy is starting off as a shadow? Will i be able to solo maps without a problem ? I'm currently a 78 witch and am SO sick of dying.

Marauder imo, check out this guide, its more up-to-date:

the build presented here was made a long time ago! it probably still works very good, shows how OP it was at the time, but now alot of stuff changed (new uniques, skilltree changes and some general rebalancing). also i think its a little harder to obtain good hybrid gear and put it to use efficiently.

I'm blasting through maps using a shadow. I believe Marauders will be much more hardy, but shadows are a blast to play due to the clear speed. If I were to play HC, I'd go mara :P But I play on default as well.

@Animasolo What level are you? And how often do you die ? I actually made a FP Shadow till 64 and quit him cause he was way too squishy.. couldn't even farm docks safely -_-

Anger? It applies only to attacks, so it's kinda useless with EK.

Can you post your gear? I'm lvling up an EK shadow (lvl 54 currently) and i find it a bit hard: definitely too squishy and the dps is still not as good as I thought.
