Home Path of Exile POE Hollow Palm Leveling

We are glad to welcome you here in our Overgear Guide to Hollow Palm Leveling. We know how players usually struggle while trying to level up another character and this is why we are glad to present you this build. Hollow Palm is one of the fastest builds to use for leveling as it can take you to level 90 in three and a half hours depending on how fast you are. With that being said let’s look into more details and find out how it works.

Hollow Palm Leveling Overview

What makes this build even more attractive is that you can’t have any gloves or weapons equipped and this is very good as you have to buy three less items for leveling. Let’s take a look at One With Nothing Small Cluster Jewel to understand why it works in this way.

As you can see in the picture above you get 40% more attack speed with your Melee Skills and more importantly One With Nothing adds 14 to 20 Attack Physical Damage to Melee Skills per 10 Dex you have. What it means is that you can get an insane amount of flat damage while being super low level because of items like Astramentis and a bunch of Dex from your tree.

The current state of Hollow Palm is that it synergizes well with Call of The Void making your leveling process super fun as it helps you to clear faster than ever before. It guarantees you shatters with Herald of Ice.

Precise Technique will allow you to do 40% more Attack Damage because you get a lot and a lot of Accuracy Rating due to endless stacking of Dex. The Only Drawback of this build is that it lacks Movement Speed as your only ability is going to be Flame Dash and you can’t really spam it. Try to stack as much Movement Speed as possible from your gear and tree to cover this issue.

Once you get all the items you need your main goal is to rush to the nearest available Cluster Jewel Socket to slot in Hollow Palm. You can use whatever leveling skill you believe to be the strongest to complete act 1 which is when Hollow Palm can be chosen for most classes. Once you get it – the fun begins and your character becomes insanely strong. You also want to rush Precise Technique after mainly due to 40% more damage and after that, you should get the Utmos Swiftness. It gives you an insane amount of Dex and all attributes. Next, it is very important to get Cold Mastery as it is the way to make Trinity Work via Smite. Talking about Life Nods we should say that it is a good idea to grab every available one unless you are super good at dodging in this game. Other good option to choose is Elemental Damage, Melee Damage, and Penetration.


You will have been level 65 by the time you finish the Campaign. After that you can run 5 Way rotations up to level 100. At that point, you will have all of your passive skill points and gear available.

You can use this strategy to level any class and this method is available for every league. This build provides you with an enjoyable experience of leveling in less than 4 hours.
