Is there any way of showing my gear here? I know how to post my passive skill tree but can't figure how to post my gear.
Prob easier just to start a thread for help in the PoE forums and post us the link. That is one of the most appealing things about this game is the AMAZING website and support. Gotta love being able to view and post your inventory without needing the game client!

Lightning Arrow is a favorite of almost every ranger build do to the fact that lightning can shock targets. Adding in LMP allows your LA to hit more targets. Compound that with chain and your are just cheating at this point. Weapon Elemental Damage to makes your bow hit % harder with your skills.

For single target you can either go with Frenzy or Elemental Hit. I personally like Elemental Hit more even though Frenzy will show higher sheet dps. So, either Frenzy/Elemental hit, Faster Attacks, Weapon Elemental Damage and life leech.

With those skill setups you should be fine.

Some other problems could be your gear. You really want a bow with physical dmg, elemental dmg and attack speed.

Weather you run blood magic or not you want to only use the auras with flat mana reserves. The auras that take a % of your mana will just eat your health or mana alive.

The aura's I suggest are Grace, Wrath, Anger. Link these with a reduced mana gem to minimize the reserve.


The POE Ranger forums have some great builds that are pretty straight forward.

++ Rep ^^ Thank for your post, it helped me ! thumb.gif

IMHO I see a few problems in general with your build for higher difficulties, but can you specify your OP with what exactly your starting to struggle with?

Are you having problems with mana? With fighting elemental dmg? or dps too low?

And I'm not very sure how endurance charges work, afaik they are only useful with some skills, I'm I wrong?.

No, blood magic sets your mana to 0 and you spend life instead of mana.

Endurance charges give the following:
+5% Physical Damage reduction per Charge
+5% additional Elemental Resistances per Charge

You can use these charges on the following abilities
Immortal Call
*Discharges Endurance Charges, making the character invulnerable to physical damage for a short time, proportional to how many endurance charges were expended. Immortal Call will not protect against elemental or chaos damage.

Discharge
*Discharge all the character’s charges to deal elemental damage to all nearby monsters. All damage from expended charges is dealt simultaneously within a radius centered around the caster.

Looking at your tree, looks like you have low hp. I tried to make a glass cannon but it is difficult to make it work in PoE. I suggest getting Blood Magic so you can spam skills without worrying about your mana, your life leech/regen will take care of spell cost. And with low hp, you cannot get surrounded by mobs, you will have to kite.

Question about Warlord's Mark. Is that something that can be acquired through quest or just by drop?

Ok yeah, that is the main thing is your defense is lacking. Def want a new belt and you NEED gear with +health/+strength on it. Your resistances LOOK ok at a glance... but your focusing too much on mana regen when it should be the opposite for melee marauder. You need life regen. Also at higher levels that +1 life regen per second crap on your gear is going to be virtually useless. You want the +% life regen and life leech. That being said, focus on uppiing your physical dmg with gear rather than using all the added elemental dmg (ie your going to get more benefit from +strength and what not for life regen). Also, You need mad life nodes! Life nodes and strength nodes are your friend! Remember passives are just that. Strength not only helps your dps, it also helps your life!

Also another kind of odd ball sort of thing you have in there is the energy shield. Is there a reason you went with energy shield passiveS? To me, as a marauder, they are a compelte waste. Not to mention none of your gear has ES on it... so all those passives and those couple of ES boosts on items are essentially useless... ES is only good to protect against spells, but it needs to be sustainable! If your ES depletes in one shot... then its not doing ANYthing for you. Try to get rid of it and respec those passives if your not going for some weird/cool marauder hybrid caster build; in which case your going to need ES on your gears as well...

Endurance charges are clutch also. Specially since you took the elemental adaptation passive you want to max all your resistances. You have warlords mark which is a good spam skill for blood magic support gem at lower lvls until you get massive life. But as the guy above me stated, blood magic doesn't add anything to your health, so use it cautiously. use enduring cry to keep your endurance charges up in combat. It gets annoying sometimes to keep endurance charges up, but benefits are well worth it.

Also, check out bobs stuff. He is obviously got the marauder gunning the right way!

Both. I know it's a duelist quest item but forgot which level.

Also to pDimflAn do NOT try to use blood magic just yet. That will be your short term goal, but you NEED to un-[screw] your life situation first. Get +life, + strength, and %life regen along with as many +%life nodes as you can. Also on your gear remember at higher dps, life leech is ten-fold better than those puny little numbers regenerated per second.

An indicator of when you can use blood magic safely is when you are generating 1/3 or more life than your main attacks per second.
