Build Notes

Gameplay Loop
  1. Alternate between Whirlwind & HoTa.
  2. Use Rallying Cry to break out of crowd control.
  3. Warcry for a burst of damage and Berserking.
  4. Wrath of The Berserker when you need a big boost to damage!
How It Works

This is an updated version of the now well-known Whirlwind / HoTa build ready for season 4.

The way it works is by leveraging all of the benefits of weapon swapping, things like Earthstrikers for regular overpowers, or Furious Impulses for next to infinite fury, and much more!

One of the slickest things about this build is Whirlwind and this is because it's one of the very few skills in the game that cannot overpower (because it's a channeling skill). So we can pile on every Overpower source known to mankind in the confidence we'll only be using them on our hard-hitting HoTa.
