The Duelist is Path of Exile’s strength/dexterity hybrid class, making him unmatched at dealing and avoiding damage. He can effectively use a shield but is equally comfortable slashing away with a powerful two-hander or fighting with weapons in both hands. His powerful arms can draw the strings of the heaviest and most lethal longbows. His highly honed reflexes give him a cat-like ability to dodge and parry incoming attacks, be they arrows or ax swings. The Duelist is a daunting foe, and his reputation as a ruthless killer is well deserved.
The Slayer class focuses on raw power and maintaining sustainability as they fight. They possess bonuses to life leech and stun and passives such as Bane of Legends gives them an edge against tougher monsters. Due to the minor nodes all having increased attack speed and two-handed damage bonuses, this class is well suited for attack skills for two-handed weapons and bows.in build process if you need to buy Poe currency you can go u4gm.com
TOP 1 Retch – SLArcher
The shown build is inspired by Dakoos The Endless Retch-Guide, which means: Taking advantage of the Vessel of Viktor – The Retch – Endless Hunger (slayer-passive) – synergy.
The Retch provides 200% of your leeched life as chaos damage, which wouldn’t be too fancy without the Endless Hunger because leech-effects normally would be removed at full life. – Well, with Endless Hunger it’s not removed.
Finally, Vessel of Viktor provides a huge Lifeleech-amount based on your lightning damage (30% base for leg. version and 20% for the new one), which is already showing the direction they build has to take: Getting as much lightning damage as possible (more later at following points).
A few sentences about slayer being played as an archer, which may be weird at the first look, but: Skilling into headsman and Brutalfervorr provides benefits to two-handed weapons, not two-handed-melee-weapons.
Even though bows are being used with quivers, they are mechanically two-handed weapons, which is why they can be 6-linked as well. – So you are not going to waste any potential here.

Top 2: 200-600k DPS-Budget, New Player Friendly
1. 2 Required uniques: Bringer of Rain & Bloodseeker. Both Are Cheap!
3. On stupidly cheap gear has completed Uber Lab and up to Tier 14 maps.
4. Tanky, should only die to one-shots. 6 pieces of rare gear to get newly buffed LIFE rolls + over 200% increased life from the tree!
5. With about 350c into the build; over 600k DPS, 5,300 health, 34% Block, 19% evasion. 2,200 life instantly leeched per second + life continues to leech over time at reaching a full life.
5. TONS of potential to min/max if you wanna pump currency into it.
This is a true budget build that will get you deep into maps on self-found gear, which you will then be able to fill out your atlas. The build only really has 2 required uniques that are affordable off self-found currency early in a league and extremely cheap later in a league.

TOP 3 : Commando with shotgun(shrapnel shot) and phosphorus grenades(fire trap)
We stack a bunch of on-hit elemental damage and use clusters of fire traps to generate us frenzy charges and set enemies on fire, which in turn allows us to use new immolate support gem that adds a buttload of flat fire damage to our attacks. So the general playstyle is: drop 1-2 clusters of fire traps and then destroy them with shrapnel shots in close range.

TOP 4 : Slayer Heavy Strike/Cleave Bleed Build
This build is utilizing high melee physical hit of heavy strike to deal high bleed damage, Starforge is the best in slot item for this build although a good physical two hand sword could be used. For mapping, swap heavy strike with cleave and use cleave threshold jewel “Overwhelming Odds”
– Good single target damage
– High life leech rate
– Decent Hp Pool
– Vulnerable to physical reflect (Headsman + Basalt Flask + Minor God – Yugul helps quite a lot)
– Mediocre clear speed
– Not budget friendly

Top 5 : Budget UberLabFarmer
“Why would I do this build?”
Just like in the title, This build is made for UberLab. If you need to make some currency for next builds this is the perfect way to farm it. You can Facetank Lazaro, so even new players can farm their currency.
Its tested budget version of sStarforcelacerate.
Well, this build is made for overlap, but I’m sure you can do all game content with it, even as budget. (Facetanking Atziri is no problem, tried her when I was bored with uber)
Pros and Cons
[+]Cheap ~Even 5-10c – you can do it as SSF
[+]Fast clear speed
[+]You don’t have to click flasks like mad
[-]High cost of upgrading items
[-]There is no “Wow”

TOP 6: Yamaha Cyclone Build (Very Cheap. Easy Uber Lab Full Key Runs)
This is pretty much another Ngamahu’s Flame Cyclone build. I have never played a Slayer before so I decided to give a shot at it and created this build in patch 2.5 based on Slayer’s impressive 2H AOE skill set. The following information should be enough for people who want to farm Uber lab all day long.
