Build Overview



Boss DPS:



Kinetic Bolt of Fragmentation is the alternate version of Kinetic Bolt that has lower damage but enables the "shotgun" effect for its secondary Projectiles so we're capitalizing on it big time by converging all the Projectiles into a single spot, right where the enemy is. The secondary Projectiles are created each time the main Projectile changes direction, which it does two times, or when interacting with enemies (by Piercing, Forking, Chaining, Splitting, or Hitting them). To generate a lot of these Projectiles simply invest in additional Projectiles from passives or Dying Sun Flask. It's the most efficient way to improve your damage against single targets. Another major improvement in this department is brought by Sniper's Mark and Focal Point Passive - This Mark Splits your Projectiles, multiplying their number. Split is the most prioritized Projectile interaction which comes before Forking, Chaining, and such, so you're guaranteed to spawn the most Projectiles during boss fights. To cause all of these to Hit the same enemy, you need a Returning Projectiles Support Gem or Nimis Ring - Projectiles will return back to you. By standing on top of your target they will all damage it. This damage is improved by Far Shot as Returning Projectiles have traveled a fair distance.

Deadeye is an obvious choice on account of the already mentioned passives - Far Shot, Focal Point, and Endless Munitions for two more Projectiles. Gathering Winds improves mobility and DPS with a powerful Tailwind Effect. The Action Speed granted by it is immensely potent. The build is also a Power Charge stacker. The new Ralakesh's Impatience Boots will keep you at Maximum Charges, and while we're at it, Badge of the Brotherhood, Graven's Secret, and Malachai's Loop seem like the best-in-slot items to expand on this Charge gimmick. It's a ton of Elemental Recoup, Crit Chace, and Attack Speed. The last piece of the puzzle is a good Wand. There you will simply need some flat Damage with local modifiers to Attack Speed, Elemental Penetration, or Critical Strikes. The end result is a build with a lot of Damage, great mobility, and excellent clear speed, but low durability. It is especially vulnerable to big Physical Damage Hits as we have no Armour at all. The abundant Evasion Rating, Spell Suppression, Life Recoup, and Life Leech are still very high and it's usually enough to protect you from dying too often during mapping.

1. Gameplay

Use Kinetic Bolt against all manners of foes. If fighting bosses, stand as close to them as you can to maximize your DPS. To move around you can use pretty much any mobility Skill but Frostblink seems like the best option with Badge of the Brotherhood on. Your one temporary Aura is Haste and it's activated via Guardian's or Divine Blessing Support. Your other Auras are Wrath, Grace, and Precision. Immortal Call and Sniper's Mark should be triggered automatically.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • very high damage against all types of bosses
  • excellent clear speed due to Gathering Winds and many Projectiles
  • vulnerable to Physical Hit Damage
  • can be expensive to assemble


3. Leveling tips

Follow our Ranger Leveling Guide - Classic Bow version. Wands are not that good to level up with, use Bows instead. Swap to Kinetic Bolt after acquiring all the mandatory Unique items like Nimis and Ralakesh's Impatience.


You should kill all three Bandits for two additional Skill Points. Ailra can be great too if you struggle with Elemental Resistances.

6. Gear Setup

This specific variant of the build utilizes Power Charges alongside unique Malachai's LoopRalakesh's ImpatienceGraven's Secret, and Badge of the Brotherhood. Nimis is a ring we deem mandatory too, you don't want to use a Support Gem in your Kinetic Bolt setup instead of it. Replica Hyrri's Ire is another unique item that is probably the best pick for this build. It leaves you with a Wand, Ring, and Gloves of Rare quality. These should be enough to cap your Resistances, get you enough Accuracy for 100% Hit Chance, and provide you with sufficient Attributes. After that's done, look for Attack Speed, Added Lightning Damage, and Critical Strike modifiers. We have also used Dance with Death and you can't use Helmet with that Keystone. It is however optional, you will probably need it for Resistances. To improve your durability look for Spell Suppression Chance and Evasion Rating.

Our recommended items will:

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

Stat priorities on items:
