[3.12] For Marauder - Ngamahu's Flame Cyclone / Consecrated Path / Tectonic Slam Build

"
Hi man, really having fun with the build. i'm experimenting with Tectonic slam and trying out Cyclone but i still feel like i dont do DPS at all to bosses. Im crafting a Flammability ring right now but i dont understand why my numbers are so low in PoB. Is it the ring? Heres my link, if you could check it i would appreciate it. Thanks!

Upgrade Multistrike, Melee Physical and Elemental Damage with Attack to awakened version. Awakened Multistrike is really cheap this league so definitely go for that as priority.

If you go for Cyclone, consider going crit skill tree and using Warlord amulet similar to this:


Flammability ring will definitely boost your damage.

In fact, based on POB, your Tectonic Slam deals around 1.9m on Sirus when fully buffed. Which is pretty good.

For boots, you can consider either of these:

What is better? Flat physical damage or flat fire damage?
I think phys. is better becouse the skill tree have a lot of %physical damage. But i want to be sure.

Flat physical is better than fire.

Hello,

Really enjoying the build, it's fun and engaging and I love to see things be deleted. However, I'm having a lot of trouble with survivability. I find myself getting one shotted a lot and just very inconsistent with staying alive. I know have some upgrades to do in terms of gloves and boots, but how else can I survive longer?

Thanks in advance for the help!

First, you need 6 sockets on Ngamahu's Flame. You do not need any link on the axe because the axe only house support gems, which support Molten Burst directly. That missing socket is at least 40% less damage.

Secondly, you do not have accuracy on your gear and you are not using Resolute Technique. You will definitely want to pick that up as it instantly improves your damage.

Next, an elder / warlord amulet will be better:


The above are meant for crit skill tree. For non-crit, you just need to exclude the crit affixes and replace them with resistance.

For gloves, you will definitely want to get your hands on Warlord influenced Spike gloves. Craft Culling strike on this pair of gloves and then you can complete it (melee damage + t1 life + resistances) with harvest crafting.

For belt, Elder/hunter Stygian belt is preferred because both can roll T1 life and life % mod:


For boots, if you are going for crit skill tree:


Otherwise:


For rings, warlord ring for curse flammability on hit, hunter ring for curse elemental weakness on hit:


To go for dual curse, you need +1 curse chest.

For chest, Crusader + Hunter chest is highly recommended:


If you are going for crit skill tree, BIS helm will be:


For non-crit skill tree, you can replace +1 power charge and crit multiplier with hybrid life and another resistance. Or just stick to Devoto.

And lastly, get your gems to 21/20. And for gems that have awakened version, upgrade to them progressively.

For flasks:
1. Bubbling Divine life flask of Staunching
2. Experimental granite flask of Warding
3. Experimental quicksilver flask of Heat
4. Taste of Hate
5. Atziri's Promise

You will replace granite flask with Lion's Roar for end game bosses.

I do not recommend running maps with more than 2 damage mods. In fact, to play it safe, just run rare maps with single damage mod unless leveling is not important to you. Always use your flasks when you engage in a fight. They are vital to your survivability.

POB when? pls :)
It is fair to say this build requires significant investment to be able to handle end game activities?

If I can only run a single character this league, I’m going to struggle with this one?
Question: I got a cluster jewel drop with Graceful Execution, Brutal Infamy and Martial Prowess. Do you think there's points in the skill tree I can pass over to instead use them on that jewel?
