[3.4] Duelist Builds List

Welcome Exile, my name is haamoo. If you're here it's probably because you already know Duelist is the most bestest class in all the land. If you have any suggestions for our list, let me know! All feedback is very welcome.

This is a list of up-to-date Duelist build guides. ibugsy came up with the original idea with his witch builds list, which was later continued by Bada_Bing.
KorgothBG maintained the build lists for Duelist, Marauder and Templar. For the last few years eviL_Bison has been looking after the Duelist build list and more recently also worked on the Shadow & Scion lists. I want to thank him for his time which he gave willingly to the Path of Exile community and I look forward to carrying on his great work.

Special thanks to Tahreyn for going out of his way to help me with making the banners for the page

How do I submit my build guide?
* Your guide should contain more than just your gear and a skill tree
* If possible a leveling section would highly appreciated (for our beginners)
* Pure theory crafted builds will not be added, builds should have at least made it well into maps
* I won't add "clickbaity" titles to the list. For example "55 Bajillion deeps, UE AFK"
* To submit your guide, just post a link in the thread or PM me, I will appreciate if you write a few words about it too

Updated the build guide for 3.4 of Frosty Duelist


A blurb, I suppose ;)

How to be a Champion Frost Blader! Build guide to play frost blades as a champion (or Scion) using either swords or claws. A bit of a jack of all trades build that tries to balance boss kill and clearspeed. Not a budget build but can do all content and gear at different price points is shown.

Thanks for taking over the Duelist build list! Also, I just posted a melee/summoner Champion build that uses Viper Strike, Herald of Agony, and Herald of Purity. [Here] is the link.
