I’m just wanted to share this build for the waystalker that i find EXTREMELY addictive and fun and has absolutely revitalised my game since the DLC has hit. I’ve been around all the classes, trying to find one i absolutely adore, and i think i’ve finally settled on one that i can just sit back and enjoy. the swiftbow/double daggers on the waystalker, with maximum crit chance, scrounger, trueflight ammo return. i just shoot, and shoot, and shoot and shoot and shoot. and shoot. and stab armor in the head for sexy points.
basically it’s a build that uses the swiftbow for mowing down unarmoured targets, and softening up harder targets to be killed quickly with double daggers. i kinda feel a bit like legolas in LOTR, fighting a horde in close quarters with the bow only, without needing to draw melee when engaged. it’s incredibly fun to shoot multiple rats real close just before they can take a swing at your face.
everyone knows the lethality of double daggers on elites and bosses, and it’s also extremely satisfying to get that crit double stab on a chaos warrior or stormvermin. with that much armour in the game on legend, daggers will see a lot of use for armour. maulers and berserkers die real fast to light attack bow spams (also exhilarating to do in close quarters)
it’s also a very safe build, basically staying behind and picking off enemies with a barrage of arrows. the swiftbow has no zoom or movement speed slowdown while aiming down sights, so you’re pretty much playing a strafer. awesome for pushing ahead quickly, retreating, covering fire (especially when running away in end events like festering grounds, blightreaper, the pit)
i love mowing down infantry with it. highly satisfying.
recommended if you haven’t tried it out yet =) parry on my daggers for some sexy blocking when needed too.
getting surrounded is the only weakness of the build, but with proper positioning, it can be avoided.
just sharing my happiness in playing this setup =) feel free to share your thoughts!
