☆ [Outdated] Sarang's TS/LA/Barrage Archer | Pathfinder | Crit Bow | Videos | Budget Version ☆

Stop trashing the beginner/budget guide. It's meant to be played as a Raider, so no "difficult" flask juggling and the only questionable item is Tabula Rasa (just get a rare instead for the same price). The rest of the sample gear has a combined life bonus of 330 (plus strength). Without my chest, I have less and still get 4.6k hp. So with Tabula it would still be above 4k, which is fine for a budget. Of course you get one-shot by dangerous shit with that. But I don't see issues farming red maps so long as you avoid stupid mods and leaguestones.

edit: A section naming those toxic mods and leaguestones would probably be helpful in the beginner's section. But it's not labeled as such but as a budget one, so he might expect the reader to be familiar with those things. I doubt other 4k life 0% chaos resist builds fare better vs Naem and friends.

This would be perfectly viable in 3.0 right? Atleast in the current beta? Haven't played a bow build in a while and looking for something elemental/LA

So far, yes.
Is it possible to kill u-atziri/guardians/shaper on semi-budget build?
I mean, I have 2x 6l (opus and belly), vinktar, oak. I'm reaching about 1,5mil barrage dps while im sitting on 5,5k life. Although my guardians attempts failed hard, mostly cus I got stunned and couldnt continue leeching or I just ran out of flasks, which means almost no leech at all.

I realize thats a lot of things to upgrade on my gear: helmet enchant, dying sun, taste of hate, even kaom's for extra life would help... but if I cant ever reach those items (cus of SSF), should I forget about T16 and other bosses?

On the other hand, there is a wander build which should kill shaper on 1ex budget. I even got necessary items, but when I put it all together to POB I get less hp and less dmg than my current bow TS/barrage build. So whats wrong with my build right now? (SSF_Shadowbolt if anyone could take a look)

So, I am using PF right now. The whole flask thing is annoying. I am used to quicksilver but do not want to get rid of a life potion for that.Any tips on using flasks quickly?

Also, damage seems too low. My tree may be goofy. If any suggestions let me know. Also perhaps I should use belly instaed of Kaoms for flask buff and res?


With PF the playstyle is flask based. You could try adding a Wretch belt that increases your flask duration fairly significantly.

Actually have you swapped to Raider????

Either way you have 3 jeewl sockets within 2 points of your current routing. I'd drop heavy draw and cloth and chain for those jewel sockets. I would also seriously consider getting druidic rite and primal spirit for the increased flask charges gained / duration.

This build doesn't really use a life flask that often in my experience. With Vaal Pact / Atziri's Acuity you tend to be either moving / killing and leeching back up to full constantly or dead to a one-shot / stun / freeze....etc. Especially with Vinktar's up which it should be nearly always "active" on a fast clearing PF running a fairly linear map.



Let me know how you get on :)


Yeah I went back to Raider but I m down for some tree help. Trying to use Path of Building but not sure how i can add rares I ue to it and still learning


This build is viable SSF. Just need careful leveling. Eventually you'll get the items you need or you'll have the levels to back up the lack of gear. Prioritizing Pathfinder > Gain flask charge on crit > Life on gear and tree > Crit on gear and tree > Leech on tree should make you T16 viable. With the exception of your bow, maybe use all rares with life/crit until you get the perfect combination of items?

Edit: Somehow I quoted the wrong person.

Hey, I can't help you anymore based on my own archer experience since you have surpassed mine, but if stuns are your issue you might force yourself into the uber lab again and grind out the 80% stun immunity boot enchant. Keep in mind it's only active for 4 seconds after you killed something. But Guardians have adds so maybe that helps. Combined with the Heart of the Oak passive you're mostly safe from stuns. Status ailments won't affect you as long as you're using flasks.

Which Guardians have you tried? Based on my HoWA experience Minotaur is the easiest and Chim the worst. Note that you're not supposed to facetank any of these encounters. It may work but it may fail as well. Not so much as to lose all portals, but with a little kiting you should be able to do the Guardians (minus Chim) deathless. The issue with Chim is the cloud phase where you take massive damage without a chance to leech it back - until you find him. Though on a life based character this might be easier to handle thanks to life flasks.

Regarding those 1ex builds, they're beta builds, right? I would assume that either the game gets easier or relevant items for those builds will become more expensive ;)
Question to anyone who's tried out this build, which would be stronger, a 6L Mid-High roll Death Opus or the phys bow I have below:


I'm aware that I can craft multiple mods on the bow, so the bow can be stronger. Ty in advance!
Big thanks to those who have kept the thread alive. A lot of hard work especially from DrHarvey... can't express how much appreciation I have.

I did start the Beta but I'm no longer in a position, in terms of real life, to play as much as I have. Got some big things going on. I'm also personally losing interest in the game. So I think I will wait until things are pretty set for 3.0, re-study the game, and re-do the content.

Honestly, from tidbits of what I have seen, there really is no evidence that would suggest that Bow Builds are in trouble by any means. Where builds like this will be in terms of end-game content, I'll try to figure out when I am able. I'm 50/50 on skipping the temp league coming out with 3.0 all together, and just do testing in Standard with my gear set so readers will have an idea of what to shoot for.
