I did decide to give BV a try, granted I won't be getting a 6L Inpulsa's anytime soon - still gonna try it. If I dislike it I'll just switch back to RF.


So to follow up: I enjoy how powerful this build is/can get, but holy shit this skill is unbelievably annoying to use. I even went with picking up both Skill Duration passive clusters, and I hate needing to keep refreshing the skill every few seconds.

Since I won't be getting a 6L Inpulsa's, I think I may be switching to RF sooner than I anticipated :(

BV is going to be MUCH faster map clearing right now, the damage just seems crazy.
However, since everyone and their mom is playing that stuff right now, decent endgame gear is going to be a expensive (6L Inpulsas are 8ex atm).

What are your goals this league? If you want to get to 100 I'd say BV should be much less of a headache.

I was going to say, yeah that is quite impressive - especially considering 3 of those are in this thread alone!

Before I make my decision, does anyone have any last recommendations? I always revert back to RF Jugg or KB Wand Pathfinder/Deadeye, I need something that has fast clear speed and bossing capabilities, that isn't annoying to micromanage (seriously fuck BV, if you could cast it while moving I'd be 100% sold, but needing to stop to reapply..).

:banana:

so what is the problem with arc totems? the only thing you would need to buy on poe trade is the shimmerons, which can be fairly easily farmed as well.
can run up to shaper on a tabula and moonsorrows even.

Has more to do with the actual game play, movement, snap defenses, and then hearing a high tier item drop alert and wasting 2 minutes trying to backtrack and find it, it's definitely something I'm going to revisit in the near future, especially when the price of Shimmerons comes down.

using BV you dont actually need to keep refreshing the skill more than you would using a different offensive ability.

Even for t14-t15 maps I rarely stack BV higher than 4-5 , everything gets oneshotted anyway, except for bosses which mostly facetank und oneshot(until immune phase) with 10bv + pots up

Yeah true. Only difference is when you cast BV sometimes it feels like you're just "casting it", when compared to playing a Sunder build for example, your right click feels more immersive and impactful. Hard to explain.

I do wish BV would act like a Druid's Hurricane though, however that would be OP as fuck lol
