[1.0.2] skuadak's cheap, classic crit Frenzy/SA ranger(v.2.1) [videos inside]

I've rewritten the whole guide, added one video, added leveling guide and been able to lay may hands on two nice items,

Spoiler


whitch have buffed the whole thing quite remarkably. So I guess it's about time for another shameless bump.

I'd love to get some feedback from you guys too.

Build and guide look pretty great to me. I haven't tried the build out myself, but the former top ranger on the nemesis ladder ran a phys+crit split arrow iron reflexes build before dying at 92. He most likely ran a very similar build. edit: just found out he was actually running acrobatics.. pretty ballsy

As for feedback, in one more level if you are ever actually at the point where you can sustain your mana pool without those mana nodes i would try something like this.

And while i don't know if i would suggest the build for standard/dom, a more defensive variant of the build COULD be to pick up EB+mind over matter and ditch iron reflexes for ondar's guile. Haven't tested how well that shit works in practice though.

Thanks!

That's a very nice idea for the future, although I took 3 bandit's rewards, so I'd need to respec Finesse, +10 dex and +12% psych dmg(or Mind Drinker and arounds, depending of the gear) to make it for 86 lvl. Still it looks like very good potential improvement arm-,damage- and lifewise. I'd need to mass quite alot of mana and some mana regen since I want to keep Grace and Hadtred auras. Espessialy Hatred is crucial for this build since it secure the damage diversity.

To be honest I have barely slight idea of what's going on at the Hardcore leagues and even slightes of how the Evasion builds works in practice thus I didn't even considered posting hardcore and evasion variation of this one. That'd be way to much of theorycrafting from my side.

Thanks for this guide!

I'm quite new to this game and plan to do a some kind of similar build but have one really newbi question. If I would combine Iron reflexes and acrobatics could it be viable or does the 50% armor malus from acrobatics be taking effect after iron reflex does trigger so I should avoid combining these 2?

Kind regards

I'm glad you like it and that I can be of some help.

That -50% will cut your finall armor in half. Both of them are great nodes, but they are to be taken separately. IR goes well with armor builds (well it's even a trigger for the armor rangers builds), Acrobatics with evasion builds.

Ok, thanks for clarifying! Then Ill go for evasion only :).

Nice build, i'm trying to follow. Having a hard time finding lioneye for less than 5ex, if anyone got a cheap one for sale plz pst!
Thanks for this build.
Since you dont pick up allres in the tree, it may actually be really expensive to buy gear with either allres or high duo res..
I am planning on playing a ranger in nemesis, would you recommend your build for nemesis?

Well I found literaly the crappiest roll's lioneye's possible with 2 sockets for 2 ex and spend 2 divines on it. You could try it this way. (Damn me if I know what's the prices are atm, I didn't play PoE for almost a month)

No, it wasn't expensive at all, rings are self found, stuff like boots, gloves have single/double resis and sometimes +hp, they aren't expensive stuff. Of course tree is partialy outcome of what I've found (like my rings with good ele res and hp, but no dmg at all). If you, for example found awesome ring with alot of dmg, but no ele resi, feel free to pick some resi from the tree instead of dmg or ias (there's 16% total of ele res with easy access).

As for a question about Nemesis - as I said I have no experience with hardcore leagues, but I doubt if the build is hardcore viable - seems bit to fragile.
