All My Guides.

Stats

Offensive unbuffed

Offensive with all buffs

Defence without Flasks



Defence with Flasks



Deaths count


Damage calculating

Damage per Use x Attacks per Second = DPS

Current is 40,763 x 12,99 = 529,511


With Assassin's Mark (add 9% crit chance and 41% more crit multi)


( ( min dam + max dam / 2 ) * ( crit chance + 9 ) * crit mult * 1,41 + ( min dam + max dam / 2 ) * ( 100 - ( crit chance + 9 ) ) ) * Accuracy = 63,129

so max can be 63,129 x 13,89 (with vaal haste it's up almost always) = 876,861


Pros and Cons

Pros:
- High DPS (near 500k)
- Clearing Speed
- Cheap (all gear 1Ex worth)
- Easy of use

Cons:
- Solo build
- Flicking is not for all, can strain too much


Passive Tree / Bandits

Gear



The Retch can be changed with any other belt.

Other Weapons


Jewels



Flasks



Skill build

Flicker Strike + Multistrike + Melee Splash + Physical to Lightning + Melee Physical Damage + Weapon Elemental Damage / Life Leech

Frenzy + Whirling blades + Faster attacks

Blood Rage + Vaal Haste + Increased Duration

Immortal Call + Cast When Damage Taken + Increased Duration

Assassin's Mark + Blasphemy

Hatred

Summon Ice Golem


Ascendancy classes

What about new class system?

You can play as Shadow, Ranger or Dualist.

Assassin

Deadly Infusion gives you base crit chance / crit multi.
You oneshoting any pack, that's why Ambush will give you some clearing speed boost.

Trickster

My choice Swift Killer, Walk the Aether and Patient Reaper.

It gives you +1 to Maximum Frenzy Charges, 10% chance to gain a Frenzy Charge on Kill, Movement Skills cost no Mana(flicker strike is a movement skill) and some DPS.

Raider

I think you can take any passives and it will be ok.

My choice is Rapid Assault, Way of the Poacher, Avatar of Frenzy.

Pathfinder

Oh, Flaskmaster...

One way for crit build is to take Master Surgeon for flask charges from crit.
And add Master Fletcher as a small damage boost.

Slayer

Melee splash in passive tree? It's crazyness... Impact must have!
and Endless Hunger - stun immune and the thing that Life Leech effects are not removed at Full Life will help a lot.

Gladiator

It's defence class but it gives 25% chance to gain a Frenzy Charge on Kill with Main Hand and it help us to keep up frenzy charges even with lower dps.

My choice is Versatile Combatant + Outmatch and Outlast.

Champion

It's great! It's crazy defencive! And have a damage buff for a party. May be it's not for Flicker but it's best choice for Hardcore because have fortify forever.

So Inspirational + Fortitude.



FAQ

- Why 3k HP?
- Because of skill mechanics you get hit only if you stop, that's why you not need in stacking defence.

- Why Tabula Rasa?
- Because 6link chest cost much higher.

- Why you use Facebreakers with Abyssus?
- Boosting initial hit, it help me to keep frenzy charges.

- Why not use the poacher's mark or the blood dance?
- Assassin's Mark gives power charges and great amout of DPS. Blood dance may be i should use them but it has no life and my life pool is low enough)))

- Is it available for 2.2 patch?
- Yes, through some changes assassin's mark will give us less dps but, build still available.

care to explain how you came up with the 500k dps figure ?
"I'm going to show you pain you never knew existed, you're going to see a whole new spectrum of pain!!!!! Like a RAINBOW!"
Damage per use x Attacks per second = DPS

yes u lose charge for every use but that's why it's near 500k, you can easily get more with better gear

EDIT: I was looking on the unbuffed screenshot not the buffed one ( which is 450k ) .. carry on.

Funny thing is you dont show defense or life. It can have a mega ton of dps (Glass Cannon) You wont live long everytime you get stunned or hit youll basicly die without at least (min)4500 hp, 40-50% evasion and 25% armor midigation and some block whirling with fortify would also increase chances to survive. Bino's for a dagger- more dps pls dot. Going with a shield doesnt get you much more block then dual wield if you take the right passives and those passives tend to help both offense and defense at the same time. But a shields fine if they stats are good enough.




You get nothing off using a tabula, when using Abyssus you need more armor evasion life, facebreakers give you terrible stats 60 Multi crit is a wasted spot to have big life, evasion and resists even attack speed.
Also you should probly be using Blasp poacher mark and blood dancers, as well as bloodrage CWDT or selfcast to make sure you can keep frenzy going. Basicly with this set up if you dont kill a boss youll need a back up skill or a trick to keep from flickering into a wall of paid and death.

One last thing you are using PTL and hatred- remove added fire and use WED youll get even more pure dps.
Just knew I should have posted my dual Bino's crit reaver before someone else posted but at least now I see how much difference there is between our builds.

His life and level are clearly shown in the offence/defence spoilers. 3k life @ lvl90.
So many strikes within one breath.
But only one strike needed, for certain death.

Add Defence Stats

My way to play flicker strike is glass cannon because of some reasons:
1. You can't get as much DPS to keep your frenzy charges up all time until boss fight, if you will stacking defence.
2. Because of skill mechanics you get hit only if you stop, that's why you not need in stacking defence.
3. The last thing is stacking defence with keeping DPS will make the build worth multiple times higher.
