How Can You Improve PoE Barrage Raider Further
The Raider is an Ascendancy class for Rangers in Path of Exile. The Raider focuses on maintaining buffs, gaining Frenzy Charges, Onslaught, or Phasing through kills. She can specialize in one of these buffs to enhance its effect, greatly boosting her speed and evasion. What should you do to further improve your character and achieve higher DPS? What poe items, skill gems, passive skills etc should you aim for now?
You should get higher life on rings, belt, boot and perhaps gloves. You need to raise it up from 3k. You need to get “Penetration”, if you use a lot of elemental damage, but monsters have resists too and if you don’t get penetration from nodes such as Primeval force and forces of nature, your dmg. will be resisted and cut by a significant.
You need to get some leech from for example void leech. You want to switch Master of the hunt and master fletcher for winter spirit, you’re elemental, you want that. You will also want to have some accuracy on your gear.
Snakebites aren’t a very good choice as you’re doing full elemental dmg on tornado shot, and half elemental on barrage. You might wanna get a blue socket included in the 5L barrage so you have full ele conversion for both skills. This allows for more efficient scaling of passive nodes on your tree.
You wanna get rings with the following stats, preferably a coral ring base or a two stone ring base. Coral if you already max out resists: Prefixs (Life, elemental dmg, flat ele/phys dmg), suffixes ( Resistants, accuracy)
You want one abyss jewel that has the mob “10% chance to gain onslaught on kill”. This will speed up your clear speed greatly though the rest of your jewels are pretty good.
You can drop evreything past acrobatics to get the jewel node about that and get lioneye’s jewel. Then drop the heavy draw arm of bow nodes and get the claw nodes at shadow to convert to bow nodes through the unique lioneye jewel). Also grab the life up there. Avatar of the hunt and master fletcher isn’t very efficient or particularly any good, so drop that and the jewel slot after that.
I hope the above guide will be helpful to you, if you don’t want to be left behind in Path of Exile, buy chaos orbs on U4GM is always an excellent choice.
