Hi, im trying your build but i want to know how you deal with low block chance?


Acrobatics provides 40+% dodge, so along with the evasion and block chance, not a lot of hits get through. Also, moving quickly helps a lot. Whirl through mobs to stun and get fortify up, and you'll also avoid a lot of hits.

I saw in your post for 2.3 notes you would be playing Marauder Berserker for the league ,but later in your post I saw you'd be playing gladiator duelist. Do you know the dps would compare between the berserker and the gladiator? Lastly, what would you recommend if I'm just playing for PVE, not really much care for PVP. Sorry for dumb question, downloading game right now and just want to get my first character right! Thanks

I guess what I'm asking is what would be best for PVE? and do you only have a planned out build for glads? :O


I still need to touch up the rest of the guide, but the Prophecy notes at the top have your answers. Berserker is for crazy damage and leeching but not for someone looking for a cavalier map clearing build. Gladiator Duelist is both tankier and does better damage than it did last league, so that is a great balance between damage and survivability. For even easier mode though, go Champion, it will have plenty of damage but be even tankier than Gladiator and you can buff your allies' damage also.

/edit just saw you removed your posts, but I gotcha anyway bro :)

I like this build quite a bit. I'm currently lvl 90 in prophecy. Buying this sword for only 3ex helped a lot :D



The only problem is I'm not sure that the bleed wheel on the passive tree is worth it. It might be better to invest in more jewels or more life or something because bosses melt in seconds anyway. I'm rolling tier 10 maps and argus dies in like half a second with atziri's promise and vaal haste. Endgame izaro is also not a problem. I'm doing all this with 5link tho and if he crits with his reave attack I get oneshotted. That is evaded with very fast leap slam though :)

I'm trying to get some reduced mana reservation enchantement for hatred or herald of ash so I could also play with arctic armor.

Thanks for the well developed build :)
I think I'll go play shield charge next :D


Thanks for the kind words, I am glad you're enjoying the build! I like the bleed wheel because I like the idea of stacking more than one kind of dot and all the extra effects. You can go straight uber damage from Marauder Berserker or Shadow as well, lots of ways to play.

Whirling Blades should work faster than Leap Slam, just whirl straight through Izaro at the start of the fight and on his long telegraphed skills.

And damn, that is one hell of a sword O.O

Edit: Added notes on front page about ascendancy changes, will change up the rest to be more current at some point.
