*When you pick the Slayer ascendancy sub-class, you'll get melee splash from it so you won't need the support gem, instead pick both Faster Attacks and Added Fire Damage for the 6L gem setup. Note that you should use the melee splash support gem UNTIL you actually get the Slayer's ascendancy splash passive!


This section is a little confusing regarding Slayer. One part says to use Flicker strike + Multistrike + Melee physical damage + Fortify + Melee Physical Damage on Full life + Ruthless (which is a full 6 link) The other says to use Faster Attacks and Added Fire Damage for the 6L gem setup. So what is the proper 6L for a slayer.
@AgentX2009
Thanks for noticing! It seems that i've changed the support gem setup but forgot to fix the note! It should be fine now (both Faster Attacks and Added Fire Damage don't have a place in this build atm)

KorgothBG could you give us your thoughts about
The Red Trail to generate frenzy charges while you are bleeding, + The Golden Rule to actually reflect bleed
do you see this viable ?
While an interesting option in my opinion it requires way too much work and sacrifices to be worth it when frenzy charge generation is something that never was an issue for me. Furthermore unless you have disfavor (which is still only 25% chance, though that should in theory be enough) you need to actually find a way to inflict bleeding. And of course on top of that you actually take damage from the bleeding that you've inflicted on yourself, oh and you won't be able to take advantage of Brutal Fervour due to the bleeding immunity that it provides.

Hey man! Big fan of this build, have been having a lot of fun. As I couldn't afford the kitavas feast or chest yet, I ended up using Kaoms primacy and linking my flicker strike in a Bringer of Pain.. It's actually working surprisingly good!

However I've now aquired a 5l daressos defiance and will soon buy a Kitavas feast. Since this relieves my need for impact or melee splash, how does the Flicker setup look like in 3.1? Flicker-Multi-MeleePhys-AddedFire-(AncestralCall/Ruthless) Last one depending on boss vs clearing. Is fortify higher prio than fire?

Also, what gems should I link in my daressos? I question if a 5link is really necessary, perhaps for some single target skill, or should I just use the chest to link my skills?

Basically:

1. Flicker strike setup with 5L kitavas feast?

2. Gems in 5l daressos?

3. Will a 5L kitavas feast be a downgrade in damage from Bringer of Pain, are there other things than Impact I should change in my tree with the Kitavas?

4. I got a lightpoacher with 9% per frenzy enchant, although my life is running a bit low at 4.3k. Can I keep the lightpoacher and reach at least 5k with only rare rings, amulet, hands and belt? (Belt is already about 160 life with socket)

Hey everyone.

I followed this build till now. T7 maps atm and it works fine. Now I found an oni goroshi with 88 crit and thought about switching to a crit flicker build. Because I need to run a Purity of fire, I looked at this build idea (https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2059463/page/1) and bought Red Trail Boots to generate frenzy charges. Also bought an Abyssus and I’m theoretically ready to go.

Now I’m a bit worried if my new build will be an improvement and can carry me further then my current will. What do you think? How do they compete?

Or should I just save for a 6linked Kitavas Feast or Disfavour? Will this be better for the <T10 maps?
I ask this and just dont try it because I’m a casual player with very little time and normally have only one char per league. I don’t want to cripple my char :/
Thanks for your help.
Hi! Not sure it’s been asked or mentioned, but I want to know whether I can dual wield instead of using two handed weapon?
What are your thoughts on taking Vaal Pact on this build?
