This is the Caustic Arrow Raider build that I've been running. I've been having a blast with the movement speed, the tankiness of it with evasion and the overall clear speed is really satisfying. It's been great to learn the basics with and get a couple of Ex under my belt. But now I want something that's even stronger with ideally far better single target damage.
Hexblast Ignite with Archmage. This is the first one that I've been looking at. Looks like a blast and I really like the single target damage that it can pump out. Not having to rely on crafting is a big plus, but I'm not sure about the tankiness and especially if I've picked up bad habits from Raider. I typically just run into the middle of huge packs and Dash around spreading Caustic Ground, since the evasion on my build is so powerful right now, 2 life flasks is usually enough to get around any hits. That aside though, this build looks like great fun and looks super powerful. Not too keen on the +40% movement speed in POB compared to what I have right now, but I reckon I could get used to it pretty fast.
. Another build that I really like the look of. Also I just think this video is awesome, this guy makes them really well. Love the clear speed and single target DPS on this as well, looks like great fun. Doesn't look like it'll be too expensive to gear either. One thing I'm not sure about is having to detonate mines, not sure how I'd feel about the playstyle but I reckon I'd get over it. One thing I really like about this one is low life+energy shield, not sure why but I just really like the idea of multiple auras and reserving your HP. This build can run any map modifier as well which is really nice. The Hexblast Ignite build can't run reflect/hexproof etc.
Really not sure which of the two to go with, so I'd appreciate your guys' opinions or especially feedback on other classes you'd recommend! Thanks
