Build overview



Boss DPS:



The Kinetic Blast of Clustering is a very interesting Transfigured Skill, as it has 2 distinguishing features compared to the regular version. Firstly, it can fire only 1 Projectile and additional sources of Projectiles get converted to additional explosions. It also cannot Split, but you can still make it Fork, Pierce, or Return, causing them all to create additional explosions upon contact. You can take advantage of the Tornado Skill to overlap your explosions against a single Enemy, leading to a quite powerful burst of Damage. 

The second advantage of this Skill is the additional Physical Damage based on your maximum Mana. Physical Damage is very universal, as you can convert it to any other type you prefer, specialize in Impale, or focus on Ailments such as Bleed or Poison. In this case, we convert it to Chaos Damage via the Unholy Might Buff. This simple Buff granted by one Cluster Jewel's Notable converts 100% of your Physical Damage and grants a Chance to apply Wither in Hit, which makes Enemies take 90% increased Damage. You can also greatly benefit from modifiers that grant a portion of your Physical Damage as Extra Chaos Damage. 

As opposed to the popular Archmage Builds, you can Reserve all your Mana with powerful Auras to bolster your defenses. The Memory Vault is a particularly useful Helmet that lowers your Mana Reservation Efficiency, but greatly improves your Armour for each 50 Mana Reserved. You may use one less Aura than usual, but your Determination will be twice as effective, allowing you to get high amounts of Armour. To deal with other Damage types you will use the Loreweave and Eternal Damnation Combo. As a Ranger, you will also have easy access to Spell Suppression, instant Life Leech, and a bit of Evasion.

1. Gameplay

Use Kinetic Blast of Clustering as your main DPS. You will automatically Mark Enemies with Assassin's Mark. Against Bosses, use Arcanist Brand to simultaneously cast Tornado, Despair Curse, and optionally Hydrosphere, to create additional targets for your explosions. For Movement, we recommend using the Shield Charge.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • Great Clear Speed
  • Immune to Reflect
  • Unconventional scaling options
  • Cheap to get started
  • Poor Single-target Damage, as most Wanders do
  • Only one Projectile


3. Leveling tips

You can use Wands to level up, starting with the Kinetic Bolt at level 1 and transitioning to Kinetic Blast at level 28, although the Bows are more suited for fast leveling thanks to a bigger array of Unique Bows and better scaling at very low levels. For more tips, you can visit our Ranger Leveling with Bows Guide for PoE.


Killing all Bandits for 2 bonus Skill Points is the best option, although you can help Alira to get Resistance and Critical Strike Multiplier boost in the early game. 

Leveling Skill Trees:
36 Points Passive Tree

Take Projectile, Elemental, and Critical Strike Notables at the start of Ranger Tree. Maximum Life will also be very useful. If you use Bow to level up, pick the Bow Notables too.

72 Points Passive Tree
Pick Spell Suppression, Leech, and Mark Clusters. You can transition to Wands after you pick up the Wand Cluster. 

4. Final Skill Tree, Ascendancy Points, and Pantheon

Final Skill Tree:

101 Points Final Skill Tree (doesn't include Unique or Cluster Jewels)
123 Points Path of Building(PoB) link 

Ascendancy points:

Preferably in the order:

  1. Far Shot
  2. Endless Munitions
  3. Gathering Winds
  4. Focal Point


Major God: Soul of the Brine King: You cannot be Stunned if you've been Stunned or Blocked a Stunning Hit in the past 2 seconds; 100% chance to Avoid being Frozen

Minor God: Soul of Ralakesh: 25% reduced Physical Damage over Time taken while moving; Moving while Bleeding doesn't cause you to take extra Damage
