First goal on tree is the duelist mana/life leech


Do you mean all the way into Vitality Void and Spirit Void, or just one node of each mana/heath leech each?
@zedzed_uk

Hi, i started with this build so my damage was so low i picked up vitality and spirit void...
If your damage is good and you can sustain your mana with 1 or 2 mana leech point dont grab spirit void.

So ... thought I'd post a 1st update on my levelling with this character. Currently only 47, but thought it might be useful to others if I post now before I forget what I did :)

GEMS
I levelled with frost blades until 38, and swapped to Reave at the point I got Multi-strike.
All fine to this point. Frost blades is easy to level with due to the distance you can keep - Reave is up close and personal so there is more danger of a one shot, or if you get unlucky with accuracy and miss a few times (and then end up with no mana). I'm softcore ... I think if I was Hardcore I'd maybe have stuck to frost-blades a bit longer.

GEAR
I don't have tabula rasa, so using ASHREND, as it adds level 10 fire damage. Using the links as in the OP. Also swapped to MORTEM MORSU when I got the claw nodes. Also needed gear with +INT and +STRENGTH as I wasn't getting much from the tree

LEVEL PATH
As recommended, I went first to SPIRIT VOID. Didn't bother with VITALITY VOID as it felt like I didn't need it with frost blades. I then headed to the right side of the tree - taking first the 3 life nodes (HERBALISM), and then heading left from there to take FINESSE and ASPECT OF THE LYNX. I then rushed up to the claw nodes at the far right of the tree, and once I had SOUL RAKER I took the points out of SPIRIT VOID and used them towards CLAWS OF THE MAGPIE. I then took the life nodes to the left of the claws cluster (BLOOD DRINKER). I've since added the other life nodes on the path (THICK SKIN and GOLEM'S BLOOD). I'm about to start adding the crit nodes next, or maybe the JEWEL nodes. I don't have any decent jewels .. but maybe for a few chaos I could add some +6% life and damage as well, so that might be better. I'll see :)

ASCENDENCY
I took conqueror first, as I really want worthy foe 2nd. Not having to worry about accuracy is a pretty big deal when we need to hit to get back life/mana, so that's my focus. Not sure if that's a mistake ... but it's what I've decided to do.


Any comments - or mistakes I've made - let me know. If others are following this guide would be good to know what gear you're using (especially if unique, as it makes searching so much easier / quicker!)

TY man for your report!

Grab worthy foe on second lab maybe isnt worthy(for me), cuz your accuracy on low level is good.
Grab before unstoppable hero make you more tanky for third lab ( and in general ).

For your mana problem try to use some -# mana cost of skill like praxis ring or elreon jewellery.

Always serch on poe wiki if there are some good unique for your level, if not take on poe trade one rare for 1 or 2 choas.

BTW levelling its always a personal thing, so find your way ! I always help my stats with tree taking some +30 int/str/dex points that i will drop after.
And try always to personalize the build are u following on your playstile .

Hello,
at first view your guide is quite nice, i like the video and the whole idea behind it (with Reave etc). Im going for it, but im slow and can't tell you anything specific yet, as i dont have much time to level atm. But in any case im going for the First Strike, i cant stay away from that juicy 100% damage and attack speed...

Thoughts for the super expensive build: Enlighten lvl 4 to fit in Anger to add a watchers eye for more additional damage(perhaps the reduced mana preserved nodes).
And i cant get an idea for Abyssus on how to mitigate the phys damage. Isn't the build keen to be one shot with Abyssus? Maybe a Brass dome plate? or a rare with lightning to phys, lighting coil? Loreweave seems really good for the build but the phys damage realy worries me...
you name is super dope, maybe the build has the name for a reason?

First strike its very cool point , but dangerous and boring cast it ( FOR ME ofc ). You will good with that !!!

I dont like abyssus make you so vulnerable (i prefer run a tanky boy as you can see in the build), but a lot of people like play glass cannon so i put it in the section. Starkonja its great choise.
Anger dont get you much damage , we dont have any increased ele damage, arctic armour can mitigate the abyssus with Enlighten lvl 4. Grab iron reflex to convert evasion in armour and taste of hate.

The improve section it's just a thing to give you an idea of ​​how you can change the build,
it's all based on your choice, you can personalize this base build on your playstile.

Thank you for report

Dave

Recently hit Blood Aqueduct and feel like i can talk about the build.
The lvling was smooth with frost blades on a tabula untill lvl 38 when i switched to reave as the guide says, also i bought a pair of Mortem Morsu(very cheap), they helped the clear speed and sustain. As other people did i also went for Spirit Void and later used refund points on it so that i could get the claw nodes. Sustain is great and damage is very good, I feel like i can tank most things and be safe. Overall really like the build.
