Build Notes

Gameplay Loop

Rotation 1. Pop your 3 Shouts when available 2. Pop WOTB for a 10 sec god-mode 3. Pack half your screen using SG 5. Start Frenzy/Bash-ing at the tankiest target and enjoy the cooldown resets ! 6. Repeat

Pro tips 1. Pocket Challenging Shout for big Thorns damage ! 2. Shout/WOTB BEFORE packing mobs to not interrupt their next attack 3. Maintain your Frenzy stacks and Berserking at all time for survivability ! 4. Use SG every 5 sec on bosses to reapply your debuffs !

How It Works

STATS


  • 200m+ Thorns damage (atleast)
  • 175k HP
  • 150 to 200% Attack Speed
  • 200% Movement speed
  • HUGE amount of %DR

PROS


  • Kill stuff by simply existing
  • Surprisingly fast
  • Easy to master
  • Smooth gameplay and loads of attack speed
  • Probably the tankiest build in game
  • Fairly easy to level with, most of the build aspects are available by completing Codex dungeons
  • Easy to gear for and still having a high gear ceiling

CONS


  • Requires Doombringer (Uber unique) to unleash its full potential
  • Mostly passive damage, some monsters can be a pain to deal with
  • Not the best Boss Killer , especially if the boss is attacking someone else
