[Ultimatum] PoE 3.14 Gladiator Bleed Split Bow Cheap Duelist Build

PoeCurrencyBuy Date: Apr/09/21 08:00:46 Views: 11611

Bleed Bow is probably one of the most popular Gladiator builds out there. Great clearspeed with built-in "pop" effect because of Gladiator's explosive ascendancy. Good tankiness as you can stack armour, some block, and a lot of chaos resistance. If you need a good 3.14 starter build with fast speed, this PoE 3.14 Gladiator Bleed Split Arrow Starter Duelist may be enough for you.

Quick Jump

Pros & Cons

  • + cheap to start
  • + fast
  • + pretty damn tanky (leech, 40000 armour with Molten Shell, 80+ chaos resistance)
  • + can clear all content
  • + insane for Blight and good for Delve
  • + you shit on chaos damage
  • + can run without awakened gems
  • - Needs 185 dexterity which is a big gear issue later one.
  • - also needs a lot of intelligence if you plan to min-max with Enlighten lvl.4
  • - squishy in the beginning, till you get more ascendancy nodes, block and armour
  • - greatly relies on a good bow.
  • - Snipe is hard to use on fast/teleporting/moving bosses. Easy to miss.

Buy Tabula Rasa with cheap price on PoeCurrencyBuy!

For bows i recommend Silverbranch and then Silverbough as well as Replica Quill Rain
Later i used Infractem simply because it was cheapest 6L bow. If you can somehow get a 6L Lioneye's Glare that would be great.

For chests, Ambu's Charge is great cheap option, as well as Belly of Beast of cause.

For quiver i recommend Drillneck as it gives 50% increased damage with hits and ailments and gives pierce and lof of juice. After you get block ascendancy nodes you can switch to full block Rearguard.
