View Full Version : Need some help optimizing my slayer build

Currently using http://www.titancalc.com/TitanCalc.asp?mastery=Slayer&master1=7&master2=3&sa=5&m1=22-0-1-6-1-1-1-0-1-0-0-1-1-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0&m2=32-0-0-8-0-8-0-0-0-0-2-0-0-6-0-0-0-0-0-1-0-0.
I really wanna get scattershot and volley to really improve my bow and spear damage, just wondering what I can afford to lose to get them.

You need around 5 points in Scatter to start killing with it.
So IMO it's a lot to invest that early. Why bow with Slayer? You have full warfare tree, Onslaught, DW/Tumult just waiting to be used :p

Because I have an epic shield and spear, but only mediocre green singlehand weapons. And I feel like having a range and melee option is a must for anyone.

Remember that Onslaught works with bows. I have two Slayers, one which uses a bow and switches to spear in emergencies, and one spear user who switches to bow in emergencies. The latter hasn't invested any points in the Marksmanship tree at all and killed Epic Cerberus very quickly with his bow from the doorway, using only Onslaught.
It's less effective for mobs as you lack Puncture and Scatter. But for single targets like Minotaur Lord, Typhon, Cerberus, the Nightblossom plant in the Soronis swamp, Onslaught is actually better than Marksmanship. Puncture and Scatter don't give you much effect against single targets.
Although Volley should be maxed, of course, as it affects both spear and bow. However, Slayer gets more more than enough skill points to max out Volley if you're not investing in the Marksmanship or Dual Wield trees.

Allright, tnx Irma. So forget about the Marksmanship tree and just focus on volley till I get DW?
