Doomfletch's Prism is a very interesting Bow, which allows players to reach insane amounts of Elemental DPS by stacking flat added Physical Damage. The Bow itself grants 100% of your Physical Damage as extra damage of each Element, so you basically get 300% of Physical DPS as extra Elemental DPS. This weapon allows us to level up insanely fast, and later on, and with a proper budget, we get to scale our DPS to amazing levels.

We have decided to use the Berserker class for this build, as it grants very high bonus DPS and Attack Speed from the Blitz Passive. After all, we don't get much Attack Speed from other sources as the Tree is mainly focused on defenses, Jewels, and Elemental Damage.

1. Gameplay

This build is very similar to Ranger/Deadeye Bow builds, but provides much more defensive utility at the cost of slightly lower DPS and clear speed. You should have approximately 7,000 Maximum Life, 60% Physical Damage mitigation, and around 3,000 Life Leech per Hit Rate, allowing us to face-tank most of the content. Solid defenses allow us to stay close to the enemies and benefit from the Point Blank Passive, which greatly increases Projectile Damage at close range. This Doomfletch's Prism Berserker build also offers very reasonable clear speed. By using Mirage Archer we can progress through Maps why it clears packs of enemies around us, and Scourge Arrow shots plenty projectiles in all directions, clearing entire Areas with each Attack.

0:29 Tier 16 Lair of the Hydra
1:01 Tier 16 Maze of the Minotaur
1:42 Tier 16 Forge of the Phoenix
2:07 Tier 17 Shaper

This video was recorded on a level 91 Berserker in Blight League Softcore. You could describe it as a budget-build, since all the items cost approximately 3.5 Exalted Orbs, with an average price of 25 Chaos Orbs per item, and six-linked Doomfletch's Prism being the most expensive one (approximately 70 Chaos Orbs at that time)

2. Build's PROS & CONS

PROS
  • rock-solid defenses with high Life Pool and insane Life Leech Rate
  • up to a few millions of effective Shaper DPS
  • easy leveling with Doomfletch's Prism becoming available at low-level
  • very good mobility and clear speed
CONS
  • struggles in No Leech Maps, and can't do Elemental Reflect ones
  • expensive when it comes to stacking Physical Damage with many Abyssal Jewels

 

3. Leveling tips

We recommend leveling this character by using Bows. For the first levels, it's best to use Caustic Cloud + Mirage Archer, as you will not have access to any major Bow DPS node early on, so you should focus on getting kills with Gems. When you reach level 40 you should switch to Doomfletch's Prism and your leveling will become a walk in the park. You will deal massive amounts of damage regardless of your equipment, but obviously stacking Physical Damage is advised. From this point onward you will be breezing through Maps, and your main concern should be getting some Mana Leech and Movement Speed to allow faster progression. 

Suggested leveling Gem setups:

Caustic Arrow setup
Caustic Arrow Caustic Arrow - deals high Damage over Time in an Area. Its damage is high regardless of our Passives and Items, making it a great pick for this build
Mirage Archer Mirage Archer Support - summons a Mirage Archer on your back which uses the Supported Skill which reduced Attack Speed. It allows us to progress through zones faster, with the Mirage Archer spreading Caustic Clouds
Void Manipulation Void Manipulation Support - grants very high bonus Chaos Damage
Swift Affliction Swift Affliction Support - increases your Damage over Time
Scourge Arrow setup
(level. 40+)
Scourge Arrow Scourge Arrow - primary Attack used in this build. It is a channeled Attack which deals greatly increased damage when released at 5 stages
Infused Channeling Support Infused Channeling Support - grants very high bonus to Scourge Arrow and defensive buffs based on the type of Supported Skill

Blink Arrow Blink Arrow - the recommended Mobility Skill used in this build
