Maybe I just missed it but is there anywhere that mentions progression of the skill setups whilst levelling? I know it mentions what to use depending on whether you have 4L, 5L or 6L for the LA setup but beyond that. Right now I pretty much just use:

LA-Pierce-Volley. This is basically all I use to attack right now.

Then I have Precision and Barrage but don't really use it, though am I understanding it correctly that as long as precision is activated its buffing everything?

Then Herald of Ice on its own, again as long as its activated I assume its doing something to LA. Don't have the stats(strength) for Thunder right now.

And dash for mobility, but don't have the stats for Steelskin right now.

Sorry I know this is noob, i'm very new still.


My advice (being rather noob) is: Get it when you can afford it. For 3L it is OK. Like I said above, get Mirage archer as your 4L asap. It helps alot. Even if thisbis your first Char, a 4L should be possible around Level 35-40.

Edit: Mirage Archer is so worth it because you can move and DPS. Mobility is the best defense you can get.

Thanks, ill focus on that asap. I do have a bow capable of going 4L as it has 5 sockets but right now its only a 3L and i'm scared to touch it in case I can't get at least a 3L back with the orbs I have lol. Maybe I should just commit.

Get a second bow :-) Before you reach Level 60 you will propably Upgrade alot. Or get a chest with appropriate Links if your bow is awesome.

More experienced Players might have deeper insights but I suppose as a casual noob helping another one in the same Situation (e.g. not being able to "Ups I bought an Item for 10ex I don't need...lets stash it") might be a good idea ;-)

Remember: The propability of Links and sockets increases with quality (as far as I know) so get quality up. The propability of the colour of sockets depends on the Attributes the item has as prerequisites where Strength->Red, Dexterity->Green, Intelligence->Blue.

Its nothing special, just a random bow I bought roughly based on the build guide. A Silverbranch. It does say to upgrade it to Silverbough at level 36 which im not too far off so maybe ill wait till then.

Hey ! incredible build so far I'm having a lot of fun. There is just one thing I noticed is that even with the energy leech support on my barrage, I never leech. I feel like it doesnt do that much. Am I missing something? Thank you !

I am sorry if the question Sounds dumb. Do you know how the Leech Mechanics in PoE do work? Just to be on the safe side.
I assume you're leeching but do not take the unusual mechanic of POE into account.

You always leech, it's just not noticable because of extremely low es pool

Can anyone elaborate on this;
"Get a 6L Silverbranch if possible. You can later upgrade it to Silverbough at level 36".

I can see the Silverbough is obtained by getting an item from a prophecy then upgrading the Silverbrand with it but how do you get that prophecy; are they random each time you eat a silver coin to get a new prophecy or is there some way I can target that specific one?
