Build Details

How It Works
Summary

Erase an entire screen of enemies with one slam of Pulverize with this insanely busted build! You will be leveling fast, but it doesn't stop there. I've designed this build to transition into the endgame!

This build can be used from level 1!

Click on screamheart at the top of the page to find the endgame version of this build! Change to that build at level 60.

The main reason that this build slaps so hard is due to Overpower.

  • We get 2 different sources of guaranteed Overpower based on timed intervals.
  • We get another Overpower every 20 kills.
  • We get the innate 3% chance to Overpower.
  • In the endgame build we will Overpower after spending 300 Spirit!

This allows us to stack Overpower and gain value from a stat that has far better number ranges than things like Critical Damage or Vulnerable Damage.

Use a 2h Mace for Overpower implicit.

In-Depth Explanation

Changelog

1/25/2024

  • Changed Energize Spirit Boon to Pack Leader Spirit Boon. Poison Support Tuning Stone swapped in. Replaced Blood Howl with Rabies, Retaliation Aspect with Changeling's Debt, and replaced Ballistic Aspect with Virulent Aspect. Skill Tree points adjusted to compensate. Starter glyph on Paragon Board changed to Outmatch to be able to hit the bonus without getting the glyph to 15. More points added to the Paragon Board for strong mid-game.
Gameplay Loop
  1. Use your Cataclysm and enter the fight.
  2. Slam the ground with Pulverize to kill enemies.
  3. Use Storm Strike if you need to build additional Spirit and to activate Quickshift and Resonance on your next Pulverize.
  4. Use Trample if you need Spirit, become crowd controlled, or for mobility.
  5. Use Blood Howl to activate the Vigilance passive, heal, and gain Spirit.
  6. Use Poison Creeper to lock down enemies, damage them with poison, and add poison utility.
