Build Guide


  • Good kiting back;
  • Great damage for bossing and isolated enemies;
  • Decent AOE damage.;


  • Underwhelming mobility;
  • Very vulnerable on PVP;
  • Doesn't work with Low IQ;


The idea for this build is to have quite attack speed to maximize your "Explosive Arrow" and play kiting. We'll be taking "Knife Trap" and "Spinning Chakram" as secundary sources of damage (can be replaced by "Knockback Shot" if you are having trouble with enemies getting too close, buts it will do less damage); also having Sentry, to do damage and control foes thanks to "Frozen Guardian's Sight" (it's a very usefull skill, deals great damage if stays hiting for too long, being able to take aggro and bait enemies for your traps explode).


  1. "Blood Soaked Jade", best damage gem in the game;
  2. "Echoing Shade", it's a good source of damage and the clones can lure enemys (i'm guessing clones copy your attack speed attribute);
  3. "Ca'arsen's Invigoration", attack speed and primary attack damage, it's simply is a must have;
  4. "Fervant Fang", for stacking up damage, especially against bosses and elites;
  5. "Power and Command", since you will alternate a lot;
  6. "Seled's Weakening", to pump more your damage;

The alternatives for 5 and 6 are: "Seeping Bile" for damage against high density of enemies and slow; "Howler's Call" for more damage and control; "Pheonix Ashes" for more survivability;
