[3.12] Gannicus, God of the Arena – Deathless Uber Elder for Everyone

I usually feel that I lack dps on high lvl maps

Can anybody help me on that (char: tanqueateesta on Harvest)?

Also, sometimes i get one shoted, is that normal?

Amazing build btw, really fun to play!!

Do you think having 70% base block is enough? With my current character my 6L %increased life craft instead of the block one, what do you think i should focus on?

Any suggestions to my current setup are welcome :)


70% is low and you'll get in trouble in difficult situations. Going from 70% to 79% is 30% less damage taken. I'd say at least get Gemini. However it's your choice, if you feel ok then keep the armour.
I'd say focus on a high Pdps sword.

Not sure what you're playing there but it's definitely not this build.

This is an attack build. DPS depends on your weapons. You need better swords. A Watcher's eye with Pride (preferably Impale) would also help.
If you're getting one-shot the antidote is getting more life. 7K+ is necessary. We block most hits but some will get through.

Spoiler


Build is great, especially with the crafting this league. I do everything deathless now and clear conquerors/P3 shaper in less than 10s. Thank you!

With the buffs to block chance, i was already at 69% in HO with only 1 sword so i decided to use saviour on my offhand to help clear and do more damage on boss encounters. I also opted for explode chest instead of crit chance to help clear speed especially in blight maps where the bladestorm aoe would be lacking on open maps.

All my items were self crafted using the garden. The final item I'm crafting right now is a better block sword, aiming for 500+ dps on that one.

That's some great gear you have there. I was thinking of getting a saviour too, how's that working out for you?

The exploding mod on the armour is very useful for clearing. You can also use Devastator for that. Not sure which is best though. If I had to guess I'd say the armour mod.

Hello! I would like to quote something written in the guide and ask a question:

"You don't need to use two block swords any more (or any block swords at all) as since 3.11 the tree provides an extra 7% block chance on nodes that we already take."

I checked POB and with no chance to block on swords our chance to block is 68%. So is the information about extra 7% block chance wrong?

It's good, I can see the reflections spinning around in open maps in directions that I wouldn't have gone to otherwise. The only slightly annoying part is if they copy my leapslam instead of bladestorm so you just see the reflection jumping up and down on a target lol.

All information on this guide is, as far as I know, 100% CORRECT.

You obviously didn't read the section about block carefully.
Before the tree change that 68% was 61% so we needed 18% from our swords or other sources. Now that we get 7% extra from the tree we only need 11%. You can get 7% from armour (and more from other sources) so you don't need to use block swords or you can get one block sword and life on your armour.

Hmmm, yeah leap slam can crit so they get that skill and use it permanently until they expire. You could do a quick weapon swap to get rid of them but you'd lose some auras.

On a side-note, some time ago I did some tests about using leap slam as a main skill. Maybe with a Saviour it could work...

Thank you for answering.

I read the whole guide very carefully. Now that I know about block chance being 61% from the tree before changes things make more sense to me. Thanks again.
If I want to use Intimidating Cry in this build which gem should I replace it to. Thanks for the answer..

The best candidates are Onslaught and Increased duration. In the first case you lose some damage (although we do get onslaught form the silver flask) and in the second some defenses.
