[3.4] Pasta's Dex Stacking Build Crit(Barrage/Scourge Arrow LA/TS/Ice Shot) All Content Viable

This build is still a work in progress and I will continue make changes it as I play. But the concept remains the same. Lots of Dex = Lots of Damage

This is not a beginner friendly build, or a build for day 1 league start. Look to make this build in the middle of the first week


Items you will need:



Bow:



Delve Uber Elder Kill
Deathless:

Path of Building
Current PoB(Delve SC 9/11/18): https://pastebin.com/EQUaJ5mS


Items


3.4



3.3





Gear

This is the gear you should be aiming for, but will obviously be costly

Bow

In Delve we have access to many new mods from the fossil. From what I can see, the best mod configuration for bows would be:

Prefix:
Socketed attacks deal 20% more damage
Attacks with this weapon penetrates 20% res
Dex mod

Suffix:
Double damage + as
Crit Multi + PCoC
T1 Crit or Shaper Crit


Quiver

Quiver is Hyrri’s Demise obviously
For corruptions, you have a couple options\
+1 Arrow for Barrage and general clear speed
+ chain for Deadeye chain if you find that you have too much crit
Point Blank for saving a point on tree
Flat cold for when no other options are available


Helmet

2 Options
DPS: Starkonja's Head
Clearspeed: Devoto's Devotion

Enchanted for whatever skill you are using obviously


Body

Rare Elder Assassin Garb

Prefix:
Flat life
Delve Life
Elder % life

Suffix:
Flat Dex
% Dex
Attack Crit

Or
Perfect Form

Or

For dps,Astramentis, but the life from my current Greatwolf is nice


Gloves

Corrupted with attack crit

if no PCoC from bow or gem
Oskarm


Boots

[Barrage][HypoThermia][DMG on Full Life]

Clear:

Nice, looks promising,

I think your tree can be optimised in this way, what do you think:

Hi, nice idea - yesterday I managed to make this chest

and the Dex-cold-dmg-mod came back to my mind - and just around this moment you posted your build here :)

Got this bow (without sockets and without crafted crit) for 20c:
and will give it a try.

Cheers

PS: prices for both items are just set ridiculous high to not get spammed - they are staying in my stash until I got everything else.

@pasta, what considerations did you make for the ascendancy choices? It's hard to imagine going barrage without trying to get +1 arrow from Endless Munitions. Was it as easy as "PoB said this gives more dmg", or did something else convince you not to take the extra arrow?

I wanted to save 3 points not taking pierce and the crit from pierce and crit multi from bleed out weighs the +1. I may return to +1 arrow when I get my Elder chest linked.


Its also behind farshot :|

Hey, saw you playing that build and it looks amazing.

Ive been pretty much using that old neversink tornado shot build , but its outdated and im struggling a little on bosses.

I have a Yriel's (rhoa) 6l, and a rat's nest. Can i use those on your build as well? plus , im still using a Lioneye's glare 5l bow, so im not sure if thats good enough to start running this build.

Should i keep farming currency and then change everything to the gear you mention , or can i kinda upgrade piece by piece?


Regarding AOE, can/should i run tornado shot with same link setup as you run your lightning arrow?

Sorry for some noob questions, im kinda new to the game haha

Sell the lioneyes and get a cheap bow with just the dex mod and attack speed, then craft on crit. Yriels is ok but you probably want Devoto's for better dps. Maligaro/Shadow and dust can be swapped for oskarm and the quiver is pretty cheap. Cyclopean horrors are also quite cheap. The most expensive part to get before swapping would be Astrementis and good res rings with dex.



These can be used for cheap jewels too.

You will be low on dps so LA is better. It should be better for one shotting packs. Once you get enough dps, TS will feel better.

Really like the build concept. I'd like to try this out as my second toon this league, but I have a few questions:

What's the best way to get an entry level bow: Get a shaped 6L and craft or try to get one with just the dex mod, AS and craft crit and then try to link it? How far you can go with two 5L setups (I have around 3ex to start out)? Doest Ice Shot have any downsides compared to LA/TS, bc I just like it more aesthetically.

Thanks!
