Top 5 Lancing Steel Builds in PoE 3.5 Betrayal

1. PoE 3.5 Duelist Triple Herald Impaler Builds

Hi guys, I began this league having a Shattering / Lancing Steel character into the league. This develop is primarily based on Shattering / Lancing Steel as the main skill. I use Champion to improve the harm of enemies taken as much as possible and make use of the Herald of Purity to help my damage. With all the all-natural tankyness of Champion, this make really should be genuinely strong!

Pros & Cons:
+ High dps (shotgun bosses)
+ Very high movement speed with whirling blades
+ Strong, clear speed (feels a bit like Frost Blades)
+ Strong defense as Champion
+ Budget friendly (most important uniques 2x Beltimber & Haemophilia gloves you get all together for about 5chaos. For my endgame gear I invested about 260 to 300 chaos orbs... a bit more than two exalted.)
+ fast and fun playstyle
- needs some uniques to work
- it is hard to reach more life than 6k

Shattering Steel > Greater Multiple Projectiles > Fork > Maim > Vicious Projectiles > Slower Projectiles
Whirling Blades / Leap Slam > Faster Attacks > Fortify

2. PoE 3.5 Piercing Maelstrom of Steel, Lancing Steel Deadeye Build

Lancing Steel is a skill that has:
The very high hit rate
-Makes the +30 life on-hit from the Deadeye Rupture passive very strong regen
-Allows us to stack poison stacks for vile toxins with minimal investment and a low poison chance.

Does 100% physical damage and applies impale increasing physical damage taken
-A 20 quality Lancing Steel gem that hits with 7 projectiles will increase physical damage taken by 16% with impale

Has range
-Scales with Far Shot

Scales with projectile damage while using melee weapons
-More option for dps in the passive tree allowing us to pick all the best ones

Scales off of added projectiles to a point
-Each added projectile does full damage so adding more really increases dps if we can make them all hit

Pors & Cons:
+ Ranged
+ Fast clear
+ Good AoE
+ High attack speed
+ High single target dps
+ Good regen
+ 6k+ life
- Requires some positioning at times to get good dps coverage
- Doesn't like being in melee range for the best dps
- Hard to get max dps on small targets

Kill all bandits

You need rupture second, other than that it's pretty optional tho.
However, Gathering Winds -> Rupture -> Fast and Deadly -> Powerful Precision is probably best. Just make sure your using a Pierce Support or have Lioneye's Vision until you have Powerful Precision.

Gems Links:
6-Link (Chest)

Lancing Steel
Vile Toxins
Vicious Projectiles
Damage on Full Life
Chance to Bleed

Slower Projectiles is better than Chance to Bleed (8% dps difference), but it makes the build feel bad, and it costs more dps then it gains to make it better, so I don't use it.

4-Link (Boots)
Whirling Blades
Faster Attacks
Blood Magic

4 Socket 3-Link (Helmet)
Vaal Haste
War Banner
Increased Duration

Un-linked socket if using Farrell's Bite + Farrell's Fur other-wise free.
Less Duration

3 Links (Weapons)
Increased Duration
Cast when Damage Taken (lvl 3)
Immortal Call (lvl 5)

Herald of Ash
Herald of Purity
Summon Lighting Golem

2-Link (Gloves)
Ancestral Protector

3. PoE 3.5 Ranger Deadeye Lancing Steel Builds

Some individuals have managed to produce the build function effectively. However the original program of "pure Phy's league starter build" did not perform nicely. It appears the construct functions superior if you're elemental and/or use some exclusive products which you can not use till you happen to be leveled fairly higher.

The purpose Deadeye is good is mainly because you get a ton of proj harm, atk speed, accuracy, crit likelihood, and crit multi, all of that is needed for this construct. Also, the 30 life on hit is insanely great because it works for every hit, like spells. On the tree, I'm primarily taking life, at speed, global/Atk/spell crit possibility, crit multi, and project speed. Due to the fact ice spear already has 600% enhanced crit chance at baseline, you don't need to have a lot spell crit opportunity. Focus additional on ask crit opportunity rather.

It really is not MinMaxed at all. From right here on, I require additional levels, gem levels, extra life, diamond rings, and dodge likelihood. Notice the spell harm crafted around the sword. This applied to not be achievable previously.

Pros & Cons:
+ Decent single target DPS
- Bad league starter
- Slow clear speed

Leveling Guide:
When you start leveling, dual-wield any 2 weapons and use frost blades or molten strike until LV12. At LV12, you can pick up Shattering steel. The starting 3 links are listed below.

LV4: War Banner
LV10: Whirling Blades, Leap Slam

4. 3.5 PoE Rusty Poisonous Steel Lancing Steel Builds 

Instead of placing collectively a develop guide that focuses on end-game gearing and expertise, I desire to place additional of a diary to record my progress and findings as I explore the couple new Steel expertise coming in Betrayal league. I am not a long seasoned player, but I consider I fully grasp enough about mechanisms necessary for this construct to work as league starter.

Pros & Cons:
+ None to minimum performance impact on low-end computers.
+ Most forgiving on bad connection with lag spikes.
+ Hit & run build, encouraging fast and enjoyable pace while clearing.
+ Have all the different kind of nodes available, allow picking best and most efficient ones.
+ 100% uptime for flasks.
+ Cheap to moderate unique items. With upgrade potential for rich guys.
+ Immune to reflect at endgame (Almost!)
+ Can go Dual curse.
- Main defense is RNG based.
- Need more Int & Strength via items.
- Poison damage is hard to scale at early levels.
- Require constant upgrade to both weapons during leveling.
- Knowing when to swap supports can be elusive.
- Actual dps never show on the character sheet, it needs PoB.

5. PoE 3.5 Ice Spear CoC Deadeye AKA Ice Laser Builds

Ice Spear
had been reworked to give large single target prospective with the ability to use all its projectiles to hit a single target. Cast on Crit has also been buffed to have an internal cooldown lowered to 0.15s, permitting around 7 triggers per second.

Finally, the new skill Lancing Steel could be the perfect way to trigger cast on crit because it features a long variety and may hit the same target several occasions using a single attack.

Putting all these three together is often a beast of a character launching up to 56 ice spears per second!

Pros & Cons:
+ Look awesome shooting out so many ice spears it looks like a laser beam
+ Very powerful single target
+ Safe play style freezing everything a screen away
- Can't do ele reflect

Gems Link:
Main CoC setup
Lancing Steel - Cast on Critical Strike - Ice Spear - Cold Penetration - Greater Multiple Projectiles - Hypothermia

Order of importance
1) Lancing Steel - Cast on Critical Strike - Ice Spear - Greater Multiple Projectiles
2) Cold Penetration
3) Hypothermia

Hypothermia can be subbed for Increased Critical Strikes or if you feel your crit is too low or power charge on crit if you don't have the helm enchant.

Herald of Ice

Blasphemy - Warlord's Mark
(if you already have a ring with the curse on hit warlord's mark you can use Aspect of the Spider)

War Banner
Whirling Blades - Faster Attacks - Fortify

Cast when Damage Taken
CWDT - Increased Duration - Immortal Call - Frostbomb
CWDT - Cold Snap - Summon Ice Golem

Vaal Righteous Fire
Vaal Haste

When mapping you can cast lancing steel then whirling blades INTO the pack for better clarity.
For bosses whirl AWAY from the boss and make sure ice spear transitions into its second form before hitting the target.

Kill All

Rupture -> Powerful Precision -> Gathering Winds -> Fast and Deadly

Depends on preference but I chose
Soul of the Brine King
Soul of Tukohama

Leveling Guide:
Level with swords (dual wield preferably) and use spectral throw.

Gem setup
Spectral Throw - Added Fire - Greater Multiple Projectiles - Vicious Projectiles - Faster Attacks
Upon reaching the blood, aqueducts is a good time to transition into the cast on crit gem setup and level the gems.

23 points -
50 points -
90 points -

T16 Phoenix

T16 chimera


T12 map run
