I'm looking at guides, and a lot say Pathfinders don't rely on flasks as much as other builds?
More like pathfinders are more forgiving for bad flask usage (overspamming) because they have more flask regen than other classes, so with other classes you need to be precise when to use flask to not end up with 0 uses left when you really need it, with PF you have more leeway.

You can also get them last longer than 4 sec by:
using glassblower baubles to increase quality of any non health / mana flask (health / mana increase amount regened instead) or hillock bench in research
rolling "experimenter" prefix
speccing "druidic rite" which is very close to ranger start point

That alone kind of makes me regret picking the class, not going to lie.
Tbh if you want a build that can ignore flasks exist, you won't find much. Maybe necromancer. Any attack / spell build will lose big deal of damage if you don't use buff flasks.

Why does the guide say to get so much int on so many items like jewels?

The highest gem looks like 154 int and that's wither and despair.

The PoB has wither at L1, so it doesn't need the int, and despair you can get on the gloves so it's essentially free of int, so you only really need like 120 or so int for the highest int gem

Yea. You can simply swap/remove the int later. The guide simply assumes you dont really have any specific gear, like despair on hit gloves, and then those are mentioned in end game optimization section. The default setup is simply aiming to be cheap and simple, then there is end game optimization, cluster jewel setup and divine flesh setup for more advanced gearing with more currency.

Could you post a pob link to your build? I'm interested in some of the upgrades you've made.
Hello there. I'm new to PoE and I have some questions about the build. When I see the character that you hyperlink in the forum it seems that you don't level up some of the support gems. Is it intentional? If it is what the advantage do I gain by keeping the gem at lv 1?
Hey guys, firstly wanted to thank the creator for the build and everyone who put their efforts to upgrade it, I'm lovin' it.

I'm trying to push the build and am in the minmaxing phase right now and would love to get some insight. I used the variation that Reapless made. I have 5.8k life and according to POB ~21mil shaper dps and 90% chaos res. The defenses are enough but of course I get oneshoted. So my first question was what do you guys think I might still upgrade for DPS? I am thinking of getting Bottled Faith and maybe the right helm enchant at some point, and am not sure what I could change to get another chaos dmg Nostalgia due to chaos res. Maybe you guys see some tree altering I could do also? My POB link: https://pastebin.com/Em3hT7fK. My profile is also public, char name: Shaibonas.


Another question: I got rare boots with Aspect of the cat. Do you guys think it would be wise to switch it for Aspect of the Spider or not? I haven't had any experience with the skill, but it seems pretty decent defense wise.

To avoid getting one-shotted, I recommend adding some additional mitigation. I've pushed my physical mitigation down to .22 by crafting phys as elemental on chest and helm and then adding endurance charges to my boots. Also, if you run vaal grace you'll get a big boost to evasion. I can facetank Kosis on wave 20 right now.



My next goal is to craft tailwind+endurance boots, but it'll probably cost a fortune.

Just finished the acts, and seems like SA will be really fun, would you personally recommend going with the divine flesh or cluster version of the build?
