Extra Information

I thought I should share this as it has been what I have been doing. I am new to Grim Dawn and this mod so I absolutely welcome any suggestions to this guide. I have had huge success with this build. I can solo Hidden Ubers and every boss in the game. I can solo SR 95 with ease and only die maybe a handful of times throughout due to the crystals overlapping some damage mechanics I did not see. Mana burn is NOT your friend with Strafe as it is mana heavy so if you are fighting mana burning bosses, just be aware of your mana levels. Guided arrow (although it scales with cast speed) is prioritized for single target as its damage is higher.

Devotions
While I labeled every Devotion tree I took, I want you to know I did NOT complete some trees as the final points are negligible in my opinion. For example, Assassin only has 4 points in it, taking only the Pierce nodes. Huntress has 4 points, only getting to the 3% attack rating.

Gear
It should be known that the screenshot I posted about damage is currently with a Faith bow, it will be higher when I get BoTD. I also do NOT have Gul runes currently in my gear thus the damage will scaled EVEN HIGHER and you will have more life/defense.
