All the information you need to make the best Marauder possible.
In Path of Exile, it seems like every class can use magic, raise minions, and sneakily attack from behind. Is there a place for a character with only strength and no intelligence or dexterity? Can a class decide to eat only meat and no veggies and still expect to live? Is there a place for raw tanks, wild warriors, and pure physical damage to thrive in the world? The Marauder gives a clear “Yes!” to that question.
But for many people who play the Marauder for the first time, it feels more like a big “No!” Even though the Marauder focuses on strength and physical skills most of the time, that doesn’t mean he’s easy. In fact, this class seems to have more builds than almost any other in the game. Even a small mistake when building can turn the whole thing into a disaster. Here are some tips from Path of Exile experts that will help the Marauder reach his full potential.
Get A Minimum Amount Of Dexterity And Intelligence
Some parts of the game can be very frustrating. But, like a pill, the Marauder has to do what is right and get it out of the way before he can do anything fun. Before going all out or going for a certain build, you need to meet some good minimums.
You need at least 100 agility and 100 intelligence to use gear and gems, and that includes some that the Marauder can use. So experts say that you should get each of these additional stats up to 100. After that, all that’s left is strength.
Only One Guard Skill Gem Is Necessary
It’s good to have one guard skill gem, whether you’re going for a tank or DPS build. But you can only use one guard skill gem at a time, and they all have a cooldown, so choose your best and stick with it. Don’t spread the levels around.
If the Marauder’s best guard gem doesn’t drop by Act 3, you might want to learn how to trade to get it.When the right guard skill gem is in place, Maven’s questline is much easier to finish.
Health Is Not A Shield
Even if all they do is deal damage, the Marauder will have the most health of any class in the game without much work. But if the game was just about stacking raw strength, the process would be too easy, and Path of Exile would not be one of the best free games on the Steam Deck.
Use the stats of your gear to get your spell resistance up to 75%. In the passive skill tree, stack up health buffs. Experts say that after getting about 200% in health buffs, you shouldn’t go out of your way to take a skill that boosts health. A Marauder with full resistances and 3,000 health is much better than a Marauder with 10,000 health.
As gamers play the Forbidden Sanctum, which isn’t really a roguelike, they will get more and more creative with their builds. But the class can only do so much with the tools it has.
Even though it might be tempting to use a bow to deal physical damage, the passive skills that make the bow better are on the opposite side of the screen from the passive skills that make physical damage better. Also, there are damage boosts for fighting right in front of where you start. Don’t think too much.
Probably Pick The Chieftan
When experts get together to rank the Anscendancies, the Juggernaut and Berserker are always near the bottom. Damage from the Juggernaut is just too low, and the Berserker usually kills himself. Gamers should feel free to play any of the free games in the Epic Games Store in any way they want, but there is one game that has a higher level.
The Chieftan gives the player a lot of new tools, such as warcries, totems, fire damage, life leech, and more. This gives the Marauder a lot more to think about in fights that aren’t as simple as doing or taking damage.
Pile On The Fire Damage
Many elemental effects and affliction applicators look good on the Marauder at first glance. When pros are doing Ruthless mode, it’s easy for new players to lose focus and mix up the effects of different elements.
Since the Marauder isn’t good at casting spells, it’s best to focus on just one part and then go crazy with it. Because of the perks of the Chieftan Ascendancy, fire is by far the best choice for high-tier players.
Get Blood Magic
It happens to every beginner Marauder player: they’re almost done with a tough boss, but something goes wrong. Then, all of a sudden, during the last half, they will run out of mana. Marauders have some great powers and are a great class to play by yourself, but that doesn’t help if they can’t use them.
Blood Magic takes from the life pool and gets rid of the whole mana pool. Even though this might seem scary, keep in mind that the Marauder has a lot of health and many ways to get it back. In general, it’s worth spending money on.
A Warning About The Crit Build
People generally think that Witches, Rangers, and Shadows can do critical hits. That happens for a reason. These classes have a lot of built-in ways to make it easier to land critical hits, and agility and intelligence also make it easier to land a critical hit. Players can catch beasts with the help of critical hits.
Those who want to do a “crit build” with the Marauder must build their gear, passive skills, and gems in a way that stacks attack speed instead of the normal Marauder stats. This is a good build, but it will take more time to catch up to the other classes that are better at this by nature.
Try Area Of Effect Support Gems
Even though most area of effect support gems are tied to intelligence active skill gems, many will also help strength active skill gems. These are great for the Marauder, who should use Earthquakes, Sweeps, and other spells that affect the area around them.
The Duelist, the Shadow, and the Ranger are all good at dealing damage to a single target with their bodies. As a tank or a damage dealer in a group, the Marauder will be in charge of killing mobs and groups. It’s fun to play this part because it has one of the most powerful builds in Funny Shooter 2 game.
Lead The Way
The Marauder is the toughest of the group, unless a Templar has a crazy build or a Witch has one of the best builds. To be successful, you need to be in the lead. Spellcasters and other weak classes will get killed if there isn’t someone strong to draw the attention of the baddies away from them.
The Marauder also benefits from this situation, since many of his advantages depend on him being in battle. Lastly, if the Marauders kill the smaller mobs before the rest of the group comes, they can keep the group from being surrounded by only a few units that are easy to control. Even though this character deals damage and isn’t a tank, the more enemies focus on him, the easier it is for him to deal damage.
Path of Exile can now be played on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
