[3.18] Deadeye Kinetic Blast MF 80% Quant 220% Rarity

Hey there, It's my first ever build guide so there probably wouldn't be much details and so on, but feel free to ask any questions.

Caution: Not a leaguestarter.


I've been farming T14 Towers with high juicing for over 2 weeks and this build is pretty much capable of it. Before I've afforded HH i've been running T10 with 2 Inspireds and it was totally fine aswell.

So, what's the idea?

The idea of using KB is simply to utilize the best possible skill for Towers.
Why though? Kinetic blast's main advantage are explosions it create after hitting enemy or wall. We are using Deadeye's ascendancy for this reason, which gives us 2 additional projectiles and +1 Chain, and also Dying sun for the same reason. Putting it together with Tower map = 2-3 Offscreens instantly dead from 1 cast, as well as gaining 40+ stacks of Headhunter/Inspired Learnings on you. Not saying it's only for Tower maps, but i've just didnt try this build in other maps like Tropical Islands.

3.17 Update

Absolutely nothing really changed gemlinks-wise and gear-wise, just a bit weaker Added damage support gems(around -5% total dps), so it's perfectly fine in 3.17. Removal of Nemesis mons drop currency definitely hurts, but hey now we can have Beyond on any map, which also drop currency (from Atlas passive tree), so MF'ing might become even stronger this league tbh. Needs testing anyway

Atlas tree im currently testing: https://bit.ly/3uN9Tam


3.18 Update

Uhm, welp if u read the patch notes, nothing changed with the build. Atlas u need to test urself though, just take the atlas from 3.17 and adjust for new tree. For example Singular Focus node is a must-have tho.


POB


More or less end version + Leveling section

More budget version

Please note that in this version there are no Awakened Elemental damage with attacks, so we are vulnerable to Reflect. This should be the first Upgrade made. Next I'd suggest Awakened Fork.



Gear



Leveling

There are no specific way to level, but the most popular is using Rain of arrows.
Start with Split arrow+Onslaught, go all way to lv12 and after entering Cavern of Wrath go pick up Rain of Arrows/Lightning Arrow/Ice Shot, what would you prefer more.
Links should be: Rain of arrows - Mirage archer - Hypothermia - Inspiration - Trinity - Elemental damage with attacks support

Be sure to pick up Herald of Ice and Precision, and later Hatred

For the gear:
Body: Tabula Rasa
Helm: Goldrim
Gloves: Lochtonial Caress, Hrimsorrow or Sadima's Touch
Boots: Wanderlust or Seven-League Step
Amulet: Karui Ward into Sacrificial Heart
Rings: 2x Le Heup of All or 1x Thief's Torment
Belt: Prismweave
Bow: Storm Cloud into The Tempest at lv32
Quiver: Hyrri's bite

This should easily carry you to the maps, where you would want to level to lv70 and swith into real gear already.

Leveling on maps

There are very effective way of leveling builds with Headhunter or 2x Inspired's, new Atlas Passives for beyond is a go-go.

This is real speedrun, and you can use some MS gear while you're leveling, such as Devoto's Devotion, Seven-League Step and Tabula instead of Greed's Embrace.
Oterwise just level as you can, using endgame gem setup.



Tower setup

For scarabs: Divination, Reliquary, Harbinger, Ambush
For sextants: Alva, Unique bossed drop corrupted items, 6% chance to attract monsters from Beyond, Strongboxes
Map device: beyond and only beyond, Alva mission
Maps: Nemesis or Nemesis+beyond, just make sure to have 25%+ pack size on the maps
Prophecies: Press F
Watchstones: Press F

I am pretty new so I am just asking, why is the damage so low? Is this build able to farm w/o headhunter?

As I've mentioned in the post, budget version is able to farm T10 Towers, with 2 Inspired Learnings only. 260k DPS is pretty much enough for this.
budget for this build?

Around 16ex for budget version with 2 IL's and awakened gems.

40ex~ish for normal version not including HH.
any idea to build with mageblood?

or i need to sell it and buy HH?

There is totally no point of using Mageblood over HH since we are getting way too much power from hundreds of rare monsters, while Mageblood would not give any DPS to our build.

Not sure why'd u want to do MF if u've got Mageblood already though lol
it lucky drop, but i dont have much ex to build arounnd it as i only have about 30ex

the quality of life from mageblood is so good
is it leaguestart viable?
I have never tried MF before so I decided to give the budget build a try. Found that I was very squishy on T10 Tower maps, died at least once per map. Spent more time walking to the site of my death than clearing maps. I'm sure the returns are "insane" or whatever, but I just couldn't get it going on a budget basis.
