Build Description

INTRO:
In Path of Exile 3.8 league, This build is not a league starter, it is designed to push the bow character to its limits, and to pose as an alternative to phys bow builds. The core of this build is to shift how you look at dexterity. Instead of seeing it as some negligible buff to accuracy or evasion, or meeting requirements for your equipment, we are going to convert the attributes found on our gear to flat damage.

So when you see a 55 dex roll on your boots, instead of seeing it as a wasted stat, you should see it as 45 to 50 flat cold added to your attacks, which is pretty huge considering you can get dex rolls on every item. There is a lot of variability in our gear selection, so some level of mastery is required when making gear choices. Going hybrid is perfectly viable, and will be included in the guide at a later date. This build will work well with almost any bow skill and any Ranger Ascendancy. This is a work in progress build. If there is any legacy variant in my gear it can be ignored and the nerfed version will still get you well over 10 million dps.


PROS & CONS:
+ Swifter attacks than other bow characters
+ Hits like a truck
+ Doesn't cost nearly as much as a phys conversion bow character
+ Zooms zooms around the map
+ Fastest clear in the game
+ High evasion & dodge means better survivability compared to other bow builds
+ No investment required to hit 100% accuracy
- Sometimes it's hard to find rare rings/boots
- Low life combined with being a bow character means you'll be squishy
- High investment cost
- For more experienced players, as there is a lot of balancing components to your gear
- The build is getting more popular so you won't find 3 exalt magic bow with 3/5 cold and double damage anymore


ASCENDANCY:


1. Nature's Adrenaline
2. Veteran Bowyer
3. Nature's Boon
4. Master Alchemist


BANDITS:
We will choose Alira, since it gives an incredible amout of damage, and this build is very, very hard to resist cap.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Solaris
Minor God - Soul of Shakiri
