You still recommend to start as a Raider and later with enough currency tranistion to Pathfinder?

For now im mostly care about budget version and league starting tips, reaching endgame will take some time. So if u can try to update the budget version first gonna be rly gratefull.



Also after nerfing Death's Opus to 100 multi seems that rare Harb gonna be better with a smaller pDPS then it had to have before. Also i imported ur PoB code and even Lioneye's Glare seems ahead of Death's Opus. And without need of accuract it can be then new Nr1 Bow for budget version.

wow, i just read the changes in 3.0. Lioneye's glare is gonna be so OP! it's already a great bow for leveling, now with far Shot, it's going to be an awesome end-game bow. Oh man, but wouldn't that make Deadeye to be even more irrelevant and less appealing?
Hello guys, Will any of the new support gems affect the build?

I'm fairly certain Lioneye is going to have a big impact if Opus got nerfed like that. Although for that setup, hard to max out on Crit Chance so we'll have to weigh the differences between great base crit + extra link, since for Lioneye we must use Increased Critical Strikes.

I was already a fan of it, did an Uber kill with it last league before I bought a 388 pDPS Harbinger.

If you're experienced in the build (I think you are? Saw you post in SignalShot thread a lot last league), you can go directly Pathfinder. I just found for budget players, or for players that don't have a lot of time, Raider provide the best benefit for the smallest investment. Pathfinder is still our endgame, after all.

Deadeye is just such garbage because it offers no utility whatsoever, and seems like we are gonna need it this patch since Life didn't really get buffed but content got bigger. Once again I'll have to play around with the numbers.

I really don't think they will to be honest. New Support Gems aren't really WED (or whatever it is now, EDA I guess) focused at all so we'll start with the same links. One argument can be made for Innervate if you go Elemental style though, free Onslaught allows us to open up a Flask Slot, so while paper DPS goes down, effect DPS should still rise.




I reviewed the Patch Notes last night at the hotel, so I got some stuff to think about on the flight. Still working right now though, unfortunately. I have some ideas that I haven't shared here before so I'll post my 2.6 Personal Setup tonight, and that would be good for historical purposes anyhow.

Thank's for the answers. I was considering goig PF from the start since i don't rly like lvling new characters and buying + using 40 regrets would be a waste early.

Im still curious if they gonna add a new Bow to the council, they showed 2 new items, boots and gloves. There is a also a chance for Harbinger League Unique Bow (Harbinger base would fit the league name lol).

However for a starter u would still recommend Death's Opus becouse of crit? Lioneye's looks better now but as u wrote the luck of crit is pretty bad.

I used ur endgame PoB and when changing phys proj to inc cirt on Lioneye's setup it have similar dmg to nerfed Opus with phys proj gem. Then seems like a 350 pDPS Harb can get a little ahed (even without crit affix).

Also what's ur opinion on nerfed Alchemist? We cannot longer get 3 proj from Dying Sun, the only way would be to use a Conqueror Potency jewel but i don't know how it looks compared to a nice dmg jewel.

Still trying out things in PoB but im not that experienced with PoE yet, started playing like half the way through Breach league.


If you find time to check things for budget wariant i gonna be gratefull, however don't rush anything.

I generally beeline for Lioneye in new league, so last 2 leagues I played either my build or SignalShot. Reasoning for this is economical... early league you got very little resources to work with, assuming you aren't flipping 24/7 or whatever to generate currency that way. That and your gear isn't end-game quality yet so you don't know, especially in the Jewelry department, what your setup looks like.


So while Opus is good, or has been good, at the early stages, Lioneye for me is way more value because you don't ever have to worry about Accuracy during that stage, period. Use it first, then work on getting end-game Jewelry with good Accuracy rolls when the time comes.

Also as a side note, only thing I don't like about being poor early league is you gotta use VP instead of Acuity, with Raider you don't need Blood Rage, with Pathfinder, some people find it more comfortable to play without BR but you lose Frenzy Charges. So that is a playstyle decision you gotta make.

For early league pickups, should be focused on Tabula or trash 6L, Lioneye Glare, then sniping good Jewelry and Jewels. 4-mod damage Jewels last league I picked up for maximum 1 Exalt, if even that, in the first two weeks. That makes sure I never have to go back and overpay later on. Same with Amulet, Rings, etc. Imagine getting SignalShot style Jewelry for 1-2 Exa, lmao. You don't have to overpay for Rat's Nest day 1, buy Starkonja's Head for 1 Alchemy and you are okay. And so forth.

For Alchemist, I couldn't fit it in this build so that's always an issue. I have tried pathing to it multiple times while theorycrafting, but you lose way too much in the process because those nodes take so many Passives to travel to. You can theoretically do it, but there's very little value outside of getting a Jewel Socket (which you would lose a Socket somewhere else anyways, so neutral), along with Cruel Preparations and potentially Arcing Blows. The original plan for myself was that if Life Nodes got a buff, the trade-off could happen, but in this case most of that is staying the same.

Yeah Lioneye's will be nice for accuracy problems, was also more after it.

How important are Atziri Acuity? They gonna be pricy as hell, so it will take a while to get them.

My bad with Alchemist, was used to ES SinglShot so i didn't pay attention that we don't travel to it with this version.

DicemanX posted a good idea in SingalShot thread to switch bows and use Kaom's Heart. Using Chin Sol for bosses with barrage setup and sth like Opus for LA map clears. Might be worth a try.

Gonna follow ur tips thanks. At what point would u look for a rare Harb?

Also if u find time, could u share a poe.trade search for jewels? I know we probably need a life mod + 3 dmg ones but im not sure what gonna be the best.

Just got home, am super tired but I'll do what I can tonight.

Acuity is nice if you don't wanna always play with the "gotta go fast" style that is VP + Blood Rage. It's unfortunately all we got to work with in the early game. Easy workaround is Raider with VP, don't need Blood Rage to generate Frenzy Charges. Other options, especially now since we got access to Wise Oak to cap resists with no problems, is Blood Dance boots, or +1 Curse Amu with Pathfinder (any shitty one is ok) and you use double Curse on Hit, which I did one league and it was fine, no need for Blood Rage.

I saw Diceman's post, is probably the best option for min/max tbh, I did this in 2.4 videos, you can watch old ones in the 2nd post), but once I was settled on Signal Fire 100%, getting 2x +1 Signals is gonna be pricy. But for AOE you can use non +1, most important is the Barrage Bow you use will be important.

Will do the poe.trade link when I gather thoughts.

For bow unless you're grabbing 380+ or even better I'd stick with the Uniques. Gotta run numbers later on new Opus but I'm pretty sure that's the case. Only reason I had a 388 last league is because the guy sold it to me 6L and cheap b/c he had no clue I could clear suffixes to re-mod.
