Hey, I'm looking for advice on how i should progress the build further. My DPS isn't good and my survivability is decent. Can I link my PoB and get some help? I've followed the guide closely.


Throw it in and I can check it out when I find some time.

First of all,
you have huge pathing issues in your skilltree.
At the bottom you use 6 nodes to connect the left and the right side of the tree. You could achieve the same with 1 node above "hard knocks". You would gain 5 points out of it.

Are you running blood stance or sand stance? Blood stance will provide lots of damage to you.

If you feel like your survivability is good enough with the new allocated nodes. (Which mostly should be life)
You could go for aspect of carnage instead of blitz. This will provide more flat dps but will make you more squishy and slightly slower.

Another thing you could do is spec into "Dismembering". This would give you about 15% more damage.
You would still have 2 points left to go for life, a jewel socket or "Versatility" for another 5% more damage

Another option is to go for 1 rare foil with about 400pdps and attack speed/crit. At this price range you however could just buy a saviour for 8 ex and most likely deal more damage.

Why no Pride?

It fits with enlighten and a lower precision, take out blood and sand and it's an easy fit.

Pride's 19 to 39% more phy damage > 14% more area damage from blood and sand no?
Thanks for the build. I have really enjoyed it this league, it's nice and slick now and grinding away to 40 challenges for the first time.

Here is the build as it is now.

Hey, I am currently leveling this on SSF as my second character, since I don't have access to Atziri's or Lions Roar atm, should I use the brutality gem? My damage seems a bit low for acts, any other tips would be great aswell! Also my APS is really low, what weapons should I use for leveling? Swords/Axes etc? I'm not too sure as this is my first true melee build, sorry if this stuff seems obvious I'm just struggling a bit :p

Your damage scales off your weapon are you regularly upgrading it as you level?

Yeah, I've been doing vendor recipes and trying to find better dps weapons.

Your current weapons are not optimal. Your first weapon converts 25% of phys to chaos which is bad for impale.
The second is a claw. It simply does not get used.
You can easily craft good rares by buying the fastest axe for your current level and use the phys recipe or throw some chaos/phys essences on it

Hi,

Thanks for the build. It looked fun, so I decided to adopt it for my first character, who is now level 94.

I am having trouble staying alive in rare tier 14+ maps, however and Catarina - which I now realize you suggest not fighting and for good reason, kills me each and every time.

I got lucky recently and had enough Exalted orbs to get most of the gear save, well... The Paradoxicas. I think one of my foils is a bit weak, but looking at the Paradoxicas, I feel the stats make it seem underwhelming to my noob eyes.

I'm not playing SSF so yeah, before I spend 15+ Exalted on Paradoxicas, please reassure me, will it make that big a difference? Because my last and very expensive gear change - EVERYTHING except the weapons, yielded me a 10% increase in damage and a decrease in survivability, which left me unimpressed relative to the cost of that operation.

Looking forward to the ability to handle tier 16 maps!

Thanks :-)

Thanks for the kind words.
The build overall took a few big hits in the past patches. It however can still do very well.
I recommend to aim for one paradoxica (1.5 ats 160+ pds) which go for like 3-4 exa. And for the other hand a saviour which goes for 4,5 - 5ex.
Your Entropy thirst does not provide great damage to your build since it provides lots of ele and the build mostly scales phys.
Paradoxica is good because of the double damage mod. It basically doubles all sources of flat phys on gear and other sources.
