Flicker strike build

Flicker strike build DEFAULT

[3.15] [Build Showcase] Flicker Strike Slayer with Brutal Charge | 5.9k life | 53m DPS 100% uptime!

Went 2 handed weapon because I can have 7th links and it is also stronger than dual wield/with shield in term of DPS
Choose Axe over Sword because base physical damage is stronger and with my passive tree, I mostly took 2 handed weapon nodes.

Strongest helmet, no doubt.
All attributes also help in meeting requirement for gears and gems.

This is the core equipment for this build, you need this to generate both Frenzy and Brutal charge reliably. Get Replica instead of regular because of Onslaught for more DPS and it also synergize with boots' elevated mods.

Also core equipment for this build, triple damage with 9 Brutal charge(roughly 54% more damage). This also provide life and resistance which help a little bit in gearing.
The implicit is just a fancy mod, STRONK! It is not necessary but original implicit is useless anyway, why not try your luck.

One of the few way to get maximum frenzy charge, and here is the glove.
Strike 2 additional nearby enemies is just a QoL, so you don't need to change your main skill link and lose the DPS.

This is every crit build and endgame boots.
However with new Elevated mod, the Onslaught is very good now since it also provide additional 10% attack speed and movement speed, which is then synergize with the Replica Farrul Fur's Onslaught.

Since amulet has higher value of those mods compare to rings, I decided to make it a full damage amulet, the INT implicit is also important as it is needed for gears/gems requirement. Pride's mod is there so that I can have more mana just in case I run out of it from my 15~20 APS 68 mana Flicker Strike.
Anointment, needless to say, you need more maximum Frenzy charge limit.

Synthesis implicit is need fore more maximum Frenzy charge limit.
Aspect of Cat is needed as it is needed to generate full Frenzy/Brutal charge via body armour.
Everything else is just to fill up the resistances.

Synthesis implicit is need fore more maximum Frenzy charge limit.
Everything else is just to fill up the resistances.

This is the best seed number I can find 17461, it gives
Destroyer - +15% melee critical strike multiplier
Disciple of Slaughter - 20% increased physical damage
Golem Blood/Savagery - 40% increased melee damage
Titanic Impacts - 1% of life regenerated per second
MOTA/Bravery - +40% to fire resistance

Although I don't really need fire resistance.

Impale lasts 2 additional hit, big damage
Double damage would probably show higher number in PoB but we already have Triple Damage, so I just go with %attack damage as it is slightly better than %crit multi.

The Ultimate Flicker Strike Raider Build

Updated for Patch 3.15

The Best Crafty Guides by Odealo

Estimated budget: medium to high
Buy PoE Currency

Guide notes
September 23, 2021
-Updated for Patch 3.15
October 10, 2021
-Updated gameplay video


Flicker Strike is one of the most unusual and exciting Melee Attacks in the entire Path of Exile. It makes you instantly teleport to a nearby enemy, dealing very high damage, but has a cooldown unless you spend a Frenzy Charge on your attack. The general idea behind this build is to generate Frenzy Charges at a higher rate than you can spend them on Flicker Strike to be able to freely spam it even against Bosses. That's achieved by utilizing the Raider class and Uniques like Farrul's Fur. Combining Flicker Strike with Multistrike will allow you to instantly teleport between packs of enemies obliterating them thanks to the extra AoE explosions from Herald of Ice, making it one of the fastest melee builds in the game. The flashy visual effects, however, may not suit everyone. 

This Flicker Strike setup can get very expensive, but at the same time, it's the most powerful version of this build, that will allow you to farm pretty much all of the content in the game, with insane AoE/mobility and very solid single-target DPS. It's one of the most iconic builds that everyone should try at least once during their adventure in Path of Exile!

For the full list of our Path of Exile builds you can visit the following article: Odealo's Crafty Guides - Full List


1. Gameplay

Flicker Strike offers a very unique melee playstyle. It makes you instantly teleport between enemies, so as long as, you can see new enemies on the edge of your screen, you can progress through areas with insane speed. The main concept of this build is to generate your maximum number of Frenzy Charges (9 is something you can achieve on a reasonable budget, with 10-11 pushing you into Mirror-level equipment or so) via Farrul's Fur. By socketing Less Duration in the Item with beastcrafted Aspect of the Cat, you will trigger it every 3 seconds or so. You will be also generating extra Frenzy Charges via Blood Rage, Ice Bite Support, and Way of the Poacher from Raider's Ascendancy. This will allow you to endlessly spam Flicker Strike even with very high Attack Speed. In this build you will be dealing mainly Cold Damage which is multiplied by Paradoxica - while this weapon has low base damage, it will double all the damage from other sources like Ice Bite, Frenzy Charges (with corresponding Ring affixes), Replica Abyssus, Abyssal Jewels, and more. All around, the sky is the limit when it comes to this budget, and you can reach tens of millions DPS with this setup. 

Full gameplay video:

The video was recorded on a level 93 Raider with slightly over 5000 Maximum Life and approximately 5.5kk Flicker Strike DPS. The character was wearing Replica Abyssus, Farrul's Fur, Darkray Vectors, Paradoxica, and random Unique equipment in a moderate budget. The clear speed was insane, and the build did the job done against Bosses too, but surely you may want to scale single-target further (which is more than possible in this build)

Odealo is a player-driven marketplace for PoE Currency, Orbs, and Unique items.



2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • insane mobility and clear speed
  • one of the most enjoyable builds in Path of Exile if you can stand the flashy visual effects
  • amazing AoE allowing one of the fastest Map clearings in PoE
  • very high single-target DPS with nearly unlimited scaling
  • very high Evasion and Dodge allowing you to face-tank Bosses (Guardians included)
  • vulnerable to Elemental Reflect
  • can get very expensive and requires a number of specific Unique Items


3. Leveling tips

It's basically impossible to start off with Flicker Strike. The cooldown and inability to generate Frenzy Charges on lower levels makes this skill pretty useless. We recommend leveling up with Frost Blades which is one of the best starting melee attacks in the game. It hits multiple targets at once and has high base Cold Damage. And since it's Cold/Elemental Attack, you will be able to use the same Passives and Support Gems as with your final Flicker Strike Build. Still, it's best to simply have a level 90+ Raider with tons of Currency ready before you try out this build. Below you will find some recommended low-level Gem setups and possible leveling Uniques, but you can technically level up anyway you want to, and simply respect at a latter phase.

5. Gear Setup

Below you will find all the recommended and required Items for this Flicker Strike Raider Build. This build offers some diversity when it comes it item choices, but, for the most part, picking up cheaper alternatives will be very punishing.

Expedition League “Updates” & “Disclaimers”

While I generally put a lot of emphasis on updating all of my guides before a new league starts, I have decided against doing so at the moment. Many of the changes that came with PoE’s 3.15 Expedition league launch have pretty severe gameplay impact, which is incredibly hard to predict without having the appropriate software updated (like Path of Building). Therefore, I will give all my guides a pass and point out the obvious changes. Everything outside of this paragraph will stay untouched for 3.15 for now and will be updated accordingly over the course of the next weeks. This means that the information in this paragraph always supersedes anything written in the guide. Build updates will be prioritized in order of their popularity.

These are the changes I would undoubtedly make to this build:

  • Drop Vessel of Vinktar and Atziri’s Promise. They’re not worth it at their current values.
  • Craft Ailment Avoidance on your Shield & Anoint Crystal Skin instead of Disembowling to reach Ailment Avoidance cap. (50 From Raider, 18 on Shield, 15 from Crystal Skin, 20 from the Thick Skin cluster)
  • Depending on how mana sustain feels post patch, perhaps run a Mana Flask. Otherwise add in a Jade and perhaps a Taste of Hate for maximum Defenses.


Honestly, this is one of the hardest builds to judge. Flicker generally doesn’t feel great if you can’t delete the entire screen. Therefore, you’ll have to see how it feels post-nerfs. From an overview on all builds, Flicker Raider actually faired fairly well but the skill design might actually make it problematic. It might just not pack enough punch to warrant the investment it requires. Other than Flask changes, Ailment immunity becoming harder and Support gem nerfs, nothing really changed here.


Flicker Strike Flicker Strike is notorious for being complicated to get going, yet something that people have an incredible urge to play. This guide aims to solve all of those problems making it possible for everyone to play Flicker Strike at a fairly reasonable entry price, while maintaining options to min-max the build to its fullest. We chose to go for the Raider Ascendancy, as it is the most iconic duo and honestly isn’t too far behind options like Slayer or Trickster yet offers a lot of extra advantages / utility.

The Raider Ascendancy is often overlooked, and honestly doesn’t feel like it’s the best pick right now outside of a couple of very specific cases. Even though the Ascendancy has received numerous buffs, changes, and reworks, most of what it gives is just obtainable elsewhere when you arrive at solid levels of gear. However, because Flicker Strike Flicker Strike requires Frenzy Charges to bypass its cooldown and this build eventually will want to use Farrul's Fur Farrul's Fur, which generates your maximum amount of Frenzy Charges on intervals, you want to invest into Frenzy Charges regardless. Because of your lack of Frenzy generation on bosses, outside of Farruls, you will slowly be losing Frenzy charges between Farruls’ intervals. Therefore, you’re picking up maximum Frenzy Charges wherever possible so that you can bridge that interval. Since you’re picking up maximum Frenzies, you might as well make use of an Ascendancy that suits them best, which is where Raider actually shines.

Through Avatar of the Slaughter and Way of the Poacher, you’re getting an additional Frenzy Charge and a ridiculous amount of benefits per Frenzy Charge. Since you’re getting to 10 Frenzy Charges fairly reliably, and more if you get expensive pieces of gear, this pushes Avatar of the Slaughter ahead of a lot of other Ascendancy notables you could be picking up, albeit on Slayer or Trickster. Because of Raider’s innate high mobility, you’re also getting up to 260% movement speed while maintaining really high Dodge & Evasion numbers. Sadly, all of this and the fact that you’re a Ranger, and thus are stuck on the right side of the Passive Tree, means that you’re playing a build that struggles to reach even 5,000 Health. This means that eventually you will randomly fall over to a boss-mechanic or a really nasty hit that doesn’t get avoided. Hence, I wouldn’t recommend this build in Hardcore environments.

Build Summary

Pros and Cons


+ Flicker Strike plays fast and fun
+ Brings an otherwise useless Ascendancy to life
+ Can be played on a budget
+ Easily kills all content in the game once you have the gear


– Some people get nausea from playing Flicker Strike
– Even though very tanky it has low maximum Life, so
– Not always able to control movement – Needs Boss-Knowledge to pick your DPS uptime

Map Modifiers to be Avoided

Because this build only converts a part of its damage, it still does enough damage to die to Physical Reflect maps. Therefore, both Reflects are impossible (as the majority of your damage is Elemental). Don’t forget that in case you make a mistake, and put in a Reflect map anyway, you can always swap into the Yugul pantheon in combination with wearing a Sibyl's Lament Sibyl's Lament for a single map to clear it just fine. No Leech is also annoying, but this mod is super uncommon anyway.

Echoes of the Atlas Expansion Updates

As for the 3.13 Expansion, I could have just as well written “Nothing Changed, Enjoy” and called it a day cause in effect, really nothing changed. If we’re being very skeptical about the little things, depending on your exact gear, you could have lost or gained anywhere between 1 and 5% Damage. In the exact PoB this guide showcases the difference was 1.6% negative. However, in return, Raider got a lot more consistent and a little bit more tanky! The reason why I’m saying that you could have lost damage is because it heavily depends on what affixes you have on gear. The build in the Path of Building apparently likes % Elemental Damage, of which Raider has lost 40%, a little bit better than -% Resistance on the enemy of which is has gained 5%. Generally speaking though, the opposite is true.

Regardless of whether you prefer one or the other, it is most likely a sidegrade of which the potential downside does not compete with the improvements that were made to Raider. First of all, the Phasing branch of its Ascendancy is no longer conditional – you just have phasing, permanently. This is nice as a lot of your Defenses used to hinge on that variable and while usually it was active, it could sometimes randomly turn off due to RNG and you’d lose a lot of your Dodge and Evasion. This is no longer true! In addition to that, through upping the numbers on Enemies’ Accuracy Rating Reduction and Dodge of Spell and Attack Hits, this Raider build has gotten approximately 15% more tanky, which definitely is a pretty significant buff!

Raider still packs all of its utility in its phasing and its movement speed, even though it has lost +/- 3% of that movement speed. This seems to be a recurring theme in the Ascendancy Balances (most likely also because Harvest makes getting Tailwind on boots and 35% Movement Speed incredibly easy) and Raider really hasn’t gotten the worst of it. As a comparison, while Raider lost +/- 3%, both Assassin and Trickster lost all the Movement Speed they used to have. The build still plays incredibly fast and is probably even stronger and more enjoyable than before!

Playstyle, Mechanics & Strengths

As I mentioned before, you need Frenzy charges to be able to constantly keep using the Flicker Strike ability. This is because Flicker Strike Flicker Strike innately has a cooldown, which can only be bypassed by expending a Frenzy Charge. That’s also where the complexity lies in making Flicker Strike builds, as there’s pretty much no solid way of generating Frenzy Charges on single target other than using some kind of item that seriously gimps your DPS. The upside, however, is that Flicker really packs a punch once you can bypass this little annoyance and in combination with Raider it gets a lot of things it really likes.

Raider offers the build a way to get to high amounts of Dodge, Evasion and Movement Speed which are things Flicker needs to be functional. Since you’re uncontrollably in the fray you don’t really want to be hit by every single attack out there because you’ll end up taking loads of damage, so getting some ways of avoiding incoming damage is very nice. In between packs, and more importantly so, after killing packs, your movement speed will be amongst the highest you will have ever experienced, which is both very fun but also useful to avoid on death affects you might have been flickered in to, as you can’t control where your Flicker is going really. Technically, Flicker Strike has a target mechanic where if you target a monster you will Flicker to it, but since your character will be using Multistrike, it will start living a bit of its own life, meaning you’ll mechanically no longer be able to keep up with manually targeting monsters. You’ll end up in situations where the movement speed is incredibly vital to get you out of harms’ way quickly.

The reason so many people have fallen in love with this build is because it basically clears as if you had an auto-pilot. You just hold your Flicker Strike Flicker Strike key and all of a sudden you arrive at the boss, at the end of a map. That alone feels super rewarding as well as the fact that the skill just is very enjoyable as long as you do enough damage, have enough Frenzy Charges and don’t randomly die to some white monster because your build is too squishy. That’s why I advise to be careful about how to tackle the build’s gearing process. Spend your currency and don’t go all out on damage or survivability, but upgrade for both of them and keep them balanced throughout the progress of your character.

Passive Skill Tree, PoB, and Gem Links

You can find an optimized Path of Building here. Every build I release will use the community fork of Path of Building, which is maintained and updated in a much more regular fashion than the original one. You can find PoB’s Fork, by LocalIdentity, here.

If you are not comfortable with Path of Building, we also have a PoePlanner for you. Do note that PoE Planner does not support Cluster Jewels and some specific unique jewels and it is highly recommended you install Path of Building to follow builds most optimally.

More information about the Passive Skill Tree, as well as all the Gem Links can be found on our dedicated page.

I made it a habit to check all comments in my guides on a daily basis. Obviously, there might be occurrences where getting a reply might take longer but I really do try to get back to you as soon as possible. I prefer you making remarks, suggestions or asking questions that way as it allows others to read through the comments, providing them with a potential answer to their question, without having to wait for me again. If I have somehow missed your question, you can try reaching me on our Discord.

If you enjoy my content to such an extent that you’d like to support me and my work, I have a Patreon you can check out. At no point should you feel pressured to contribute, but if you do, your support means more to me than you will ever imagine.


Since we are very adamant about trying to give you a leveling experience that lies as close to your endgame playstyle as possible, we will leave you with This Forum Guide by Hollyphantom. I myself have never leveled as a Flicker Strike character and have only respecced into it at later stages of the game. It always sounded horrible to me as a leveling skill, and I would always level up with some specific leveling gear to make it go smoother. Credits where they are due though, Hollyphantom’s walkthrough seems well-versed and in-depth enough that it deserves some credit. Otherwise, we have the following leveling guides to help you out.


A huge shoutout goes to Magefist for all his experimenting and research done into Flicker Strike. He’s been a great asset to the community and everyone who enjoys the Flicker playstyle. Particularly big thanks for him to let me use some his tweaks and techs in this guide!
