The THIRD EQ J U G G has arrived! Thiccer than ever! EQ JUGG is one of the most Iconic builds in Path of Exile history. Arrived in 2016 and still strong ever since.
While everyone were obsessed with COC, i was experimenting with BALLS. With a selfcast BALLS. With Ice Novas on top of cause.
Mathil loves this build as well, and he played it three times, but i had a totally different vision for that since the very beginning. First of all i wanted to utilize insane Elder 8L staff i had, beef up the neglected Frostbolt (my very first ever build was Frostbolt back in 2017! Gotta pay the dues!), and go CI ES TANK as well, with ES spell leech.
All these ideas are combined and reflected in this build you see. I successfully killed all content deathless, so i guess it kinda worked!
Just let them kill themselves! No need to press anything, not even the flasks!
This is probably the craziest build i’ve done during the Legion. Expected to be a meme, but turned out to be super strong against everything.
Reckoning has been there for a while, but it has never been as strong as it is now, with all melee and accuracy as well as flat damage buffs.
COUNTERATTACKS KILLING THINGS AND NOT A MEME ANYMORE 😉
Lightning Arrow was always a popular choice for levelling, but rarely was it used in the end-game. I kind of fell in love with LA during my Kinetic Blast levelling process (went from level 1 to 85 on LA) and decided i am gonna min-max it and push through Uber Elder and all content to see where “borders” are.
Kinetic Blast has been nerfed twice. First time in 3.4 when it got less area
damage and explosions were changed to prevent shotgunning near walls. And then in 3.7 when abyssal jewels were all lowered down by at least 30%.
So what’s the state of KB Wanders now? I must say i devled quite deep into the build to answer the question. And the short answer is: still viable. Still doing the job. Still expensive. Still needs barrage for Uber Elder. Still ridiculous aoe which one shots everything offscreen, still insanely fun!
The goal of the build was to create a TANKY, HIGH dps character capable to do ALL content, and not just silly currency farming. The basic goal was to achieve at least 1 million shaper dps on KB, but eventually i surpassed it and now sitting on 2 millions KB dps as well as almost 5 million for Barrage.
