[3.7] Elemental Hit Ascendant [Deathless Uber Elder Video]

I have no clue what im doing wrong here. Some assistance would be great.

So the issue is that my DPS is incredibly low and I don't know why. With the final tree linked in the OP, my dps is a mere 30k. So I tried getting rid of RT and getting some accuracy and crit. It helped (around 100k now) but it struggles on yellow maps. Killing the map bosses is incredibly tedious and it took all the portals and about 15 minutes to kill white tier Elder.

What am I doing wrong here? Sure my gear isnt the greatest ever, but I find it hard to believe that this is limited to tier X and below on maps and no bosses allowed. Also wasted my emblems because I do so little damage, took the full timer to almost kill one general. Since everyone is claiming to have killed uber elder in legion with this build, it has to be me. What am I missing?

Here is my tree (pob) https://pastebin.com/2bpZE7NR

My gear: https://www.pathofexile.com/account/view-profile/Sinxar/characters/Unquestionable (sorry it wont let me link the items directly for some reason) (note)

Thanks! Would love to get this sorted so I can progress!

Your bow is very weak. The main source of damage for elehit - gem levels.
You use both chain and GMP supports - it can be alright for map clearing, but you need a better gear. Get rid of chain and use fire penetration.
For single target you need ether frostferno or a second bow with other support gems - check in the guide.
For crit version of the build you can check my tree (realize_elehit slayer) - it's way better (except you don't want to use aspect of the lynx and weapon artistry, I only use them because of legion jewel). But you have to use xoph's blood amulet to get avatar of fire.
2 life flasks, why? Get dying sun or wise oak. Reroll elemental res affix on your diamond flask to something else too.

Maybe read the guide once more. And if you have questions left - you can message me in game. I'll try to answer
Really? It requires a high-end bow to even do red maps? I didn't realize ele hit was nerfed that much. Guess thats the answer then. I thought I would be able to get away with progressing the atlas and getting items as I got closer to shaper. I guess that is not an option. Well i don't have any more money to throw at it.

I use 2 flask because if you fail to dodge you get hit by regular white mobs in tier 5 maps for 3k - 5k damage. with only ~6k life at the moment I just spam them to not die.

*i tried a +3 bow in pob and it barely makes a difference to overall dps. It is more, yes of course. You clearly want that, but it points to a deeper issue that I am missing since it makes so little difference.

I'm just trying to understand what is going on.

ele hit is perfectly fine, your build is not. You have no single target setup, you are using weak supports. You are doing crit build with 11% effective crit chance (even with diamond flask).
Chain is ok if you clear a pack of normal monsters. But if you face a single rare - it's terrible

here: your current setup, 99k shaper dps https://pastebin.com/ZancXr08
212k after some changes (tree, xoph's blood, lioneye's fall jewel): https://pastebin.com/VcmA8UgF

if you swap chain for fire penetration - it's more than 300k, which is alright for early red map clearing.
Not enough currency? Just farm legion in white maps, it's super profitable

p.s. with +3 bow you want to use empower support

So i'm told. Ive been doing all the monoliths and playing many hours a day spamming maps and still haven't gotten enough shards to do a single battle, ended up buying 2 emblems which of course drop nothing.

Thanks for your help.

This build is really starting to suck down the exalts! I'll see what i can do. I don't know just seems overly expensive to do basic content IMO. 2ex kaoms, 2ex xophs, 1ex drillneck + lioneyes fall + other random gears, helm with enchant, 6L fossil crafted bows etc. And thats only to do red maps. I'm still doing the chaos recipe because nothing of value is dropping at all.

I mean i'll see if I can get enough for a xophs and the jewel and redo the tree.

But do you think it is worth the effort?

I can't decide for you if it's worth it or not to keep investing into the build If you are disappointed and not having fun - maybe it's not a bad idea to reroll to something else.
But maybe give one more chance - buy Frostferno helmet and use elemental hit (lvl 20 or lvl 21), elemental damage with attacks, combustion, fire penetration gems in it.
It's cheap (5-20c for the helm) and it's 2.5 times more singe target DPS than your current setup.

im not seeing that at all. so again i put it down to me missing something and i still dont know what it is.

Here it pob at current:

ele hit - GMP - fire pen - ele dmg with attacks - combustion - faster attacks

socketed in frostferno.

ele hit - fire pen - ele dmg with attacks - combustion

OK I was told it was because I did my own thing. So i reset the tree to what is shown in the OP. "upgraded" my bow.

DPS even lower than before.




My tree: https://pastebin.com/m8jxkPC4

So if anyone knows. please FFS tell me.

lava chamber with no mods with helm replaced with frostferno with 20/20 elehit + leveling supports:
If that is too low quality, here it is on gfycat: https://gfycat.com/courteousevilafricanporcupine

with all gems 20/20 in pob the dps (for the single target setup in frostferno) is shown below.

Hmm I cannot see what the issue may be. Was curious because I had no problem with shit tier gear, logged on to standard and was killing shit np in T14 dark forest.

Here is my POB, you can look at my character on my profile Gordon elehit. Make sure you selected the correct ele hit to use as your skill maybe? I know I had the incorrect one selected once and was an issue.

My Pob is lower than my tooltip
my tool tip was 41K in game. I will check back this weekend when I have more time, I am planning on doing this build once I get to red maps and farm up some on my GC build. Sorry if this was not more helpful
Awesome build mate,do u have cold elemental hit version ??
