Explosive dive bomb Falconer gear requirements

The following gear is used for this build:

  • Talons of Valor Bow
  • Woven Flesh armor
  • Death Rattle Amulet

These uniques help create the build by increasing your falcon’s damage and resetting cooldowns. They also help with survivability by increasing the health you leech.

For Affixes, you will want to focus on increasing your Dexterity, critical strike chance, and critical strike avoidance. These will help you deal more damage and avoid taking increased damage. On top of this, you will want to enhance your movement speed so you can traverse the world more quickly.

How to operate the explosive dive bomb Falconer build

The key to this build is the Explosive Trap skill. You will be using this skill a lot and relying on your Falcon for some extra damage. The Explosive Trap skill will allow you to lay out bombs that heavily damage foes that are around them. Of course, this means that you will constantly need to focus on mana costs.

You will be alternating the use of Falconry and Dive Bomb when you are not using Explosive Traps. The rotation of these skills will help you deal damage and reset your cooldowns. When you are running low on mana, use your shift ability to get out of there quickly. It is okay to switch out Smoke Bomb with Cinder Strike so you have a skill that can be used without mana. You can also use the Ballista skill to get more minions out on the field and increase your damage.

That is everything you need to know about the explosive dive bomb Falconer build. Be sure to check out all the shrines in Last Epoch so you know what bonuses you can get. You can also check out how to empower Monoliths so you can get more of a challenge.
