[3.8] DoomHerald | All Content | Millions+ DPS MirageArcher | 7k+ Life | 600+ Delves | 5-Link only

first of all want to thank you for this build. it is a life saver after playing gimped balista build advertised in nearby thread.
this one is higher dps, smoothier play style, has more hp and defences.
tho. it is still very squishy - in t1 bosses no matter what boss hits you in t1 maps is likely 1 shot that makes close to not possible to level untill a month or two till you get your ex to get an upgrade

still better then balista tho
just a bit of a disclaimer. the nerf to scourge arrow dropped my pob dps from just over 1 million to around 800k

in addition, the buff to bosses this league means the single target dps of that skill will be a lot more inefficient (double nerf to scourge arrow).

the build still has no problems clearing trash and rare mobs but stalls when facing the map bosses or unique bosses (includes syndicate and incursion ares are bloody bullet sponges) unless you have the really high end version (powered mainly by 30 exalts worth of abyss jewels).

Why can't I start from the Duelist point on the skill tree after my second ascendancy?...the guide says i should be able to.

You can do it only when you're specced in "path of the duelist" that is behind slayer node. Imo you shouldn't rush it, you'd get better results from picking both sub ascendancy nodes (slayer + elementalist) than from these few points you could unspec in your tree. Just leave it for uber lab.
sadly. this one is much worse then prev season cyclone. not possible to do more then map 7 :(
better luck next season

Well, Mathil made Doomfletch build with split arrow this season, and he did the endgame with it, he even said it could have potential with awakened gems, otherwise it's average, not amazing but not garbage. Not exactly "hardcapped at lvl 7 map".

I've been quite easily doing T12 maps with my Standard build. Just starting to optimize jewels and such too.
Do you think Holy Dominion would be a good amulett anointment for this build?

12 % to all elemental resistances
12 % increased elemental damage
5 % chance to freeze, shock and ignite
12 % increased physical damage

sounds quite nice. and all you need is two blue oils and a red one.

PS: is there any trick to keep this lady alive? I cam't can't get her past level 91, because she dies from time to time, even on low red tier maps. No idea what exactly the problem is. Maybe that she only has 5500 life?

Her gear is not perfect, but it's more or less what#s mentioned in the guide: My current character.

Holy Dominion reads good, sure. I also like Tenacity - make sure to check it with PoB.

If you struggle with suviveability you can look into the Hale Negator. It is defensivly way better then the Lightpoacher. Other then that you need to bite the bullet at one point or another and buy 2 abyss socket gear.


In general I think this Build needs a bit too much investment nowadays to perform on the highest level.

It is still very much viable - but it needs good gear for that. And the Circle of Guilts for Herald of Purity are super expensive since all impale Builds use them as well. So- yeah. Make of that what you will.

I worked on another Build like this one (fairly tanky and a bow Char) for which I will release a Guide next League.

Cheers o/

Thank you very much for your answer and all the informations!

As a non-trader, gear with 2 abyss sockets is out of range for me... but maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to find it myself :)

I can't wait to see your new guide next League.

Good luck with your maps, exile!
