PoE Racing Site Of The Top 100 Characters In Each League
Posted On 03/28/2018 01:32:10 by makebloom

In Path of Exile, in fact, top 100 list doesn't mean it's a “best build”. Many (if not most) of the top 100 players run builds that are designed solely to push 100 and nothing more (farming specific maps) - however many of these builds are capable of doing all content, including Shaper. 

People on the top 100 list are hardcore (play style not HC mode), experienced, and pushing 100 is an art all of its own that generally has no application to the average player - but we can still learn from these builds. I also want to elaborate on how I interpreted the top 100 build from the leaderboards. 

There are three core categories to consider: Softcore, Hardcore and SSF (and variations of each). Keep in mind those who are 95+ and do not play SSF often group with others (including aura bots), which includes sharing poe buy items and maps. This augmentation can misrepresent the viability of an end-game build and its capability to run without a party and reach 100 as quickly as it has. This means SSF is one of the best indicators of being solo-viable. 

Just because a character/build isn't in SSF doesn't mean the character was played in an Aura/Support group - but that must be taken into account. SSF players that push 95+ are a special breed of dedicated folks who usually put 8-12+ hours of game time in each day. These are not average players; but average players can learn from them. Below are the statistics pulled for the poe-racing site of the top 100 characters in each league subsection.


  • No worries about dying, can group, and can trade with others!
  • Top 5 Skills: Tornado Shot, Barrage, Kinetic Blast, Sunder, Cyclone.
  • Top 5 Ascendancies: Deadeye, Ascendant, Pathfinder, Occultist, Raider, Guardian.

HC Bestiary:

  • Dying is a no go - but can still group and trade.
  • Top 5 Skills: Righteous Fire, Sunder, Barrage, Tornado Shot, Reave.
  • Top 5 Ascendancies: Juggernaut, Guardian, Ascendant, Necromancer, Deadeye.

SSF Bestiary:

  • Dying is just fine, but no grouping or trading.
  • Top 5 Skills: Righteous Fire, Reave, Raise Spectre, Blade Flurry, Glacial Cascade.
  • Top 5 Ascendancies: Juggernaut, Necromancer, Hierophant, Champion, Deadeye.

HC SSF Bestiary:

  • No trading, grouping or dying allowed!
  • Top 5 Skills: Sunder, Raise Spectre, Righteous Fire, Reave, Freezing Pulse.
  • Top 5 Ascendancies: Juggernaut, Necromancer, Hierophant, Trickster, Champion.

The top folks (level 100) in Bestiary (normal and hardcore) generally run in groups, which includes aura bots. In normal, a player hit 100 in 3d8h where Hardcore was 4h18h (with the others averaging 8d) - no question they were grouping. Hierophant also joined the top 5 list due to the totem buff, and Deadeye is one of the most used ascendancies (overall). Keeping an eye on poe orbs buy, you will get more gains.
