1.3 Lagomorph Pillar of the Caged God Leap slam or Melee skill build

Howdy yall! I have been working on this build for awhile. I usually just post my stuff to youtube but some asked me to post on the forums. First time writing it up on the forums so BEAR with me. bwahaha for a full video guide of it with examples check the Full Build Guide Video and other videos.


Introduction
I had been working on a Pillar of the Caged God build that used ground slam back during the Rampage and Beyond Leagues. Sadly, my computer died before I could get the build going properly or record much of it. When Torment started I worked out to get it done and along the way found that the build could use most melee based skills, cyclone, molten strike, leap slam, sweep etc. I tried them out when i got tired of ground slam and in entered Leap Slam. I started using leap slam as my main skill over groundslam and the build, passives, and gear fell into place. The build can still use all the skills very effectively whenever I feel like so use which you prefer, I just prefer Leap Slam. I Loved the idea of Vaal Groundslam as so many said it was useless but to me it is amazing. Daresso's with Immortal Call is a Fantastic Combo. By the way, Named it Lagomorph cause a Lagomorph is what a bunny is and it leaps a lot, also it desync lags ya a lot lol, and family raises rabbits, the morph is because of the way it can use many skills or easily take passives to change its self.
