For The Slormancer players, this is a simple guide for a sharpshooter huntress utilizing 100% pierce, fork and rebound to delete the entire screen of enemies and zoom through maps.
- Fast clear & movement speed
- Highly scalable damage
- Enemies being hit constantly ensures full HP/MP at all times thanks to mana/life leech
- Don’t need to aim, just click to kill entire screen
- Requires no legendaries or even epics
- Will probably die in 1 hit to big sword elites on wrath 10
- Destroys framerate (play in windowed and restart game often to mitigate)
This build should work with a variety of reapers, the one I use is the Primordial Bow of the Manabender, It’s possible to achieve a very high mana cost with Arrow Shot which gives us a large damage buff.
Potential reaper candidates:
Primordial Bow of the Manabender
Even though it just took a huge nerf, it’s still strong enough to carry this build through wrath 10, gives an additional damage buff based on mana cost, raw damage based on mana regen and an active skill that procs explosions on crit based on the additional damage of your mana cost.
You’ll lose 1% HP per cast with the Primordial version, however it’s not a problem with life leech
The Most Powerful Primordial Bow
Gives a lot of reaper damage, which should be enough to make the build work.
Primordial Bow of the Nimble Warrior
Potentially massive crit damage scaling if you can avoid getting hit, which is possible when you kill everything before they get a chance to attack you.
Big Fury Primordial Bow
Your skill damage is lucky, decent reaper damage and a lot of raw damage scaling.
How do you get Primordial weapons??
Kill 42,000 enemies with the original version.
Arrow ShotMastery 1 – Forking Arrow, 50% Fork
Mastery 2 – Obsidian Arrowhead, 100% Pierce
Mastery 3 – Snap Back, extremely powerful damage buff
Mastery 4 – Furious and Fast, Projectile speed damage scaling
Mastery 5 – Reactive Arrow if Manabender, Multiplicative Arrow otherwise
Snap Back + Furious and Fast allow us to scale the damage of this skill immensely.
Literally doesn’t matter, use whatever you like.
Sharpshooter of the Wild
Mastery 1 – Assassin’s Momentum, huge movement speed buff which lets us run through expeditions much faster
Mastery 2 – Know Your Enemy, nice defensive layer against mages and archers
Mastery 3 – Doesn’t really matter, take Bad Medicine if your 2nd skill can poison
Mastery 4 – Also doesn’t matter, choose whatever
Mastery 5 – Precision of the Wild, free crit
Mastery 6 – Rapid Shot, proj speed = damage scaling
Mastery 7 – Baba Yaga, free elite damage
Mastery 8 – Superior Endless Quiver, all the extra projectiles you’ll ever need
50% Attack speed for your primary skill
50% Reaper damage multi applied to your next cast when you use a movement skill (Tumble)
12.5% Attack speed
Little bit of reaper damage
50% Projectile speed, big damage buff
If using Manabender:
Seasoned Hunter – 5% Attack speed, 15% Armor pen, taken to get to the next node
Elemental Swap – Aura that doubles your mana cost, Arrow shot will cost 1336 mana with this enabled.
Reapersmith’s Legacy – Free little magic find passive on the side.
Burning Shadow: Massive 50% Raw Damage and 100% Crit Damage buff with a cooldown, very powerful but not 100% uptime.
The Slormitologist – Item quantity, slormandrite find and gold find
Pain Weaver – 10% to Raw Damage, Elite Damage, and Mana Regen
Gear Stat Priority
Rebound Chance to 100%
Fork Chance to 50%
One roll of Mana Leech and one roll of Life Leech, try to get these on your epics asap to free up your rare/magic slots.
Example of a great piece of gear ->Offensive stats:
Ancestral Strike Chance
Damage to Elites
Elite Damage Reduction
These are mostly optional, you can drop them if you feel comfortable, once you’re able to kill fast enough it doesn’t matter too much
Nice to have stats:
+5 To whatever you’re using
+2 Arrow Shot
+2 Tumble if you want more buff time
Fury and Dex
Note that this build doesn’t require any legendaries, but they can make it much more powerful and smooth your progression if you happen to have them.
Frees up a stat roll
More projectiles always good
Faster Arrow Shot, more Tumble = more damage
Elite big sword skellies tend to one shot you at wrath 10, nice to have this to prevent losing your run to an unfortunate spawn
Can help with single target damage
We do a lot of hits, slap on the gold find reaper and farm it up.
How 2 Play
Spam Tumble to get more damage and movement speed.
Shoot at walls to do more damage from the Snap Back passive.
Don’t get hit by these guys, you will probably die.
