POE Betrayal Pathfinder Blade Flurry Starter Build - Fast Speed, Cheap, High Damage

R4PG Game Store Date: Dec/03/18 01:30:50 Views: 610

 

This build uses Blade Flurry as the main skill. It's still fine for clear speed. It's not your clear 2 screens with one massive projectile skill clear speed, but with enough attack speed you can just WB>hold for half a second and move on.

With this build, you can grow quickly and need a little cost. The respectable damage will amaze you.

The Pantheon List

Your major god should be Arakaali upgraded with a divine vessel used to Capture Arachnoxia from Toxic Sewers. This gives the benefit of giving you 50% increased life recovery whenever Immortal Call activates and stops Blood Rage's Damage over Time. In my opinion this interaction is overpowered.

I use the upgraded Garukhan for my minor god. But until you're able to clear Dig with a divine vessel, you should use Ralakesh.

Overview

Flasks

1. Divine Life Flask

Prefix: Either Bubbling (50% of recovery applied instantly) or Seething (Recovery applied instantly, but less total recovered).

Suffix: Either of Staunching (Removes bleeding) or of Heat (Removes freeze and chill). I would recommend Staunching.

2. Quicksilver Flask

Prefix: Your choice between Chemist's (Reduced charges used) Experimenter's (Increased duration) or Perpetual (Charges recover faster).

Suffix: Adrenaline (Additional increased movement speed) is my mandate. You've gotta have the need for speed.

3. Silver Flask

Prefix: Chemist's, Experimenter's, or Perpetual.

Suffix: Depending on your other flask choices, either of Heat (Removes freeze and chill) or of Warding (Immune to curses). I would recommend of Heat.

4. Sulfur Flask

Prefix: Chemist's, Experimenter's, or Perpetual.

Suffix: Depending on your other flask choices, either of Warding (Immune to curses) or of Staunching (Removes bleeding). I would recommend of Warding.

5. Atziri's Promise

Try to get the highest roll you can for Gain #% of Physical Damage as Extra Chaos Damage during Flask effect. The elemental roll does not matter.

Jewels

Every jewel that you get should have:

  • 7% increased maximum Life

As well as one or two of these mods (three if you're crazy):

  • (6-8)% increased Attack Speed with Claws
  • (3-5)% increased Attack Speed
  • (6-8)% increased Poison Duration
  • Any remaining Elemental Resistances you need
