Notes

BUILD TYPE & BUDGET

This is neither a starter build nor a budget build. It's a rush build for alts whose goal is to complete the campaign as quickly as possible - and that includes the use of specific items
 and thus requires a certain amount of currency. How much currency you need to invest ultimately depends on your goal. In principle, the more items you have that are recommended here, 
the faster you will be able to complete the campaign. For reference: On 28.01.2024 (Affliction leage), the estimated cost of the build was about 6 Divine Orbs (this can change, obviously).

The information in this PoB basically assumes that you are in possession of the items contained here. However, it should be noted that only Blink Arrow of Bombarding Clones and 
Mirror Arrow of Prismatic Clones are mandatory - on top of that a 6-link and 20% quality on both gems is recommended. All other items, gems, mods (e.g. anointments) or mod rolls 
are in principle optional, but they strengthen the build immensely, both in terms of damage and survivability, but also - and this is even more important - in terms of movement speed.

BUYING ITEMS ON THE TRADE WEBSITE MORE EFFICIENTLY
If you want to simplify and speed up the trading process, you can use (the following import string for) the Chrome extension 'Better PathOfExile Trading' which contains all items used in this PoB:

- Chrome extension: https://www.chromewebstore.google.com/detail/better-pathofexile-tradin/fhlinfpmdlijegjlpgedcmglkakaghnk
- Import string: https://www.docs.google.com/document/d/1T-sA-KmAKU0C_3M34IWrJms0LNV9Kdon9ZRCn_bx8HY/edit?usp=sharing

PLAYSTYLE & GAMEPLAY VIDEO
It's actually quite simple: You use both Blink Arrow of Bombardment Clones and Frostblink on cooldown and while doing so, you try to run as much as possible. For bosses, you also use 
Mirror Arrow of Prismatic Clones - make sure you always have 3 clones of each skill summoned during boss fights.

COMMON PITFALLS YOU WANT TO AVOID

- Not switching the amulet from Sidhebreath to Daresso's Salute at level 16: The reason why this is problematic is that you are supposed to use Added Lighnting Damage Support and 
Added Fire Damage Support from level 16 onwards. However, the problem is that Sidhebreath prevents your minions from doing any damage other than cold damage. If you forget 
to change the amulet, you will do much less damage than you should.

- Not switching rings after killing Kitava in Act 5: As you should know, you lose elemental resistances after killing Kitava. To assure you are resistance capped, you want to replace 
both your Perandus Signet rings with Le Heup of All and Kikazaru. On top of that, please be aware of the following: This build is designed to complete the campaign as fast as possible 
and thus does not consider anything beyond that. If you want to start mapping after completing the campaign, you need to get some additional resistances to be capped. Easy ways to do 
that is getting another Le Heup fo All (which can cap both your Fire and Cold Resistance) and getting 25% or more Lightning Resistances somewhere else (e.g. via a new body armour).

- Overleveling: This build is very fast, which is why you can easily overlevel. To prevent this, it is advisable to complete all quests with skill point rewards as well as the lab runs 
as soon as possible (and not to skip them). In addition, it doesn't hurt to cast a Mirror Arrow of Prismatic Clones (which actually only needs to be used for bosses) on blue packs from time to time. 
Furthermore, the following regions are good for killing a few more mobs than usual: Docks (Act 3), The Chamber of Innocence (Act 5), Northern Forest (Act 7), Blood Acqueducts (Act 9), The Desecrated Chamber (Act 10)

PLAYING ANOTHER CLASS THAN RANGER
Although this PoB is designed for the Ranger, the build can in principle be played by any class. The key is to take the quickest route from the starting point of the skill tree to the nearest Bow Mastery, where you must 
select 'Blink Arrow and mirror Arrow have 100% increased Cooldown Recovery Rate'. After that, you should find the fastest possible connection to the skill tree shown in this PoB, with the following exceptions:

- Witch: The Witch should first take 'Enduring Bond' before traveling to Bow Mastery.
- Shadow: Other than the other classes, the Shadow should take the Bow Mastery next to 'Hunter's Gambit' and then travel to the normal skill tree via 'Reflexes'.
