Build overview



Boss DPS:



As of patch 3.24, the Tornado Shot is no longer the go-to Bow Attack for Deadeyes. It's the Elemental Hit of the Spectrum. This Attack simply adds Fire, Cold, and Lightning Damage to Attacks, dealing more Elemental Damage per Elemental Ailment on the enemy. Elemental Ailments are applied on Critical Strikes with Elemental Damage, which you have a lot of on account of your weapon and other sources of added Lightning, Cold, and Fire Damage. Your Crit Chance is also high, so you won't need to look for Chance to Ignite, Chill, or Shock. It's worth noting that the game has (harder to access) alternate Elemental Ailments like Scorch, Sap, and Brittle. We recommend allocating Secrets of Suffering to apply these powerful debuffs while still being able to Shock and Chill via Skitterbots. With these 5 Ailments, you will deal 75% more Damage. This triple-elemental setup will work well with Trinity Support and Resonances for even more Damage. The only downside of Elemental Hit of the Spectrum is the inability to deal Chaos Damage, but it's not a big one.

Pick Deadeye with Far Shot, Endless Munitions, Gathering Winds, and Focal Point - the usual configuration. It results in a fast-paced character with high damage. The character also uses two Manaforged Arrow setups to get Power and Frenzy Charges, ensnare bosses, and recover a lot of Life and Mana via tons of singular Hits from Blast Rain and Storm Rain. This rapid recovery is highly valued and should not be overlooked. Its damage against bosses is also excellent even with no Ballistas - your Projectiles will return to you after hitting an enemy, exploding on contact once again. It's overall a well-rounded damage-wise build, but it's definitely on the softcore side on a survivability spectrum. It has default 75% Resistances, no Armour, and low Physical Damage Reduction making it prone to getting one-shotted. It's still good against Attacks due to the very high Evasion, and with a 100% Spell Suppression Chance it will survive most Spell Hits. This is a budget version of a build, aimed to guide you through the first week of a new league

1. Gameplay

Use your Elemental Hit from a distance to benefit from extra Damage from Far Shot. The Attack will trigger multiple other Manaforged Bow Attacks that are helpful during boss fights and mapping alike. To move around use Blink Arrow or other similar Skill. Your Guard Spell is triggered automatically when you take enough damage. The Sniper's Mark is triggered automatically too - on Hit against tough opponents. Your auras are Grace, Skitterbots, and Precision.

5. Gear Setup

It's a fast-paced glass-canon build whose goal is not to be durable, but you still need capped Resistances, around 4k of Maximum Life, tons of Evasion, and 100% Spell Suppression Chance to have a good chance of survival on a regular T16 map. You should prioritize Movement Speed and damage, it's a build for fast mapping. Damage is sourced from added Elemental Damage of all types and Critical Strike Chance/Multiplier. You will need to look for Strength and Intelligence for your Gems. Reservation shouldn't be needed, but you can get some on your Rare Helmet if you can't sustain the Mana Cost. It's possible to use only Rare Items, but Hyrri's Truth and The Taming seems too good to not use them.

Our recommended items will:

  1. Cap your resistances at 75%
  2. Provide you with enough DPS, Life, and ES to start mapping
