More Details
  • Legendary Gems

    • Bane of the Trapped
    • Pain Enhancer
    • Gogok of Swiftness

Kanai's Cube

  • Dawn
  • Aquila Cuirass
  • Elusive Ring

Gear setup is pretty straightforward. If you have a really good elusive ring then use it instead of COE.

Normal gems: All diamonds (Helm is mandatory), you can put some Emeralds if you don't die much.

Legendary Gems: Bane of the Stricken can be used instead of Pain Enhancer, more Single Target-oriented gameplay (mostly killing elites as fast as possible).

If you don't have a very good Strongarms, you can use Nemesis Bracers and just try to kill more elites.

Build Guide

Due to multiple requests here we go!
A lot of guides here are mostly LIGHTNING builds, and after a certain amount of pushing i came to a conclusion that Cold is a little more superior.
Why COLD is better?

1) It pierces, you can hit more enemies. Like Dagger of Darts :)

2) More enemies hit = > more area damage procs. Area damage works much better with Cold setup

3) More enemies hit = > more Pain Enhancer procs => more attack speed/ bleeds. Once again more damage.

4) More Pain Enhancer procs = higher attack speed, faster attacks, faster recovery, faster everything.

The only shortcoming of using Cold setup is occasional Hatred issues (Lightning has more guaranteed hits in lower density)

General stats:

1) Try to accumulate as much area damage as possible. Then go for attack speed. If your weapon has low base damage then leave IAS and don't roll AD.

2) You need 36% CDR to have permanent uptime of Vengeance. This can be done with one 8% roll on shoulders or anywhere else + diamond in helm and Dawn in Cube. However, if you don't have 8% cdr it's no big deal. The downtime of Vengeance will be just 1 second.

3) Another useful passive is Leech, you can use it instead of Numbing Traps. If you have a lot of Life per Kill rolls on your gear it can give you insane tankiness.

Gameplay:

1) Fight only big packs.

2) Try to avoid fighting annoying blue packs.

3) Engage elites ONLY in face-to-face combat as much as possible. This way all 3 knives from Holy Point Shot will hit
