Hello friends, wanted to make a thread for those that love playing EW Deadegeye and feel the power of his shotguns at end game.
Figured we could all share little tips and anecdotes since a lot of the English stuff on him isn’t really helpful / feels weird.
How do you run your Devil Hunter?
I personally use Full Range on Shotgun Dominator because The Ruler makes it’s already trash range get reduced by a further 20%. I’ve found that full range allows me to get off really big damage without getting screwed over by a boss taking a step a foot or two forward.
As per stats and engravings I personally run EW 3, Grudge 3, Ambush Master 3, KBW 3, Adrenaline 1, SA 1.
The reason for EW 3 is 1) Gold books are hella cheap for him on EUC, 2) it’s 30% crit so basically adrenaline 2 without attack power, 3) you can always add adrenaline as I have done 4) the > crit rate means you don’t have to put points into crit and can just go spec / swift.
So stats as I said, spec / swift with 0 crit on accessories. For reference I have 7% from LWC + 30% from EW + 1% from random books/roster level horizontal prog + 5% from Adrenaline + 10% from crit debuff + 10% from back attack = ~63% crit from self.
Add in the extra 15% from Argos and you’re Gucci. Also this stat spread is also viable when you get Earth set since it’s a flat 17% crit rate at 4 piece which is nice. (81% crit rate with 0 crit accessories lolol)
Anyway, that’s how I play my dude. He has 1 swift accessory so I have about 1400 spec and 700 Swift. That plus the CDR gems (pain in the ass to get on deadeye) gives me a really nice flow of skills and makes him feel really smooth.
Anyway thats my experience with him. I love him and like you fellow lovers, know, despite all the hate, it’s possible to MVP cruel fighter on this dude in most content
