UMBRA & SOUP & ROGUE'S
DUAL STRIKER LEECHTANK


A HISTORY OF STRIKING,
WHY & HOW IT WORKS


This build was created by me (Umbra) at the deployment of the 1.0 update nearly 4 years ago and thrives on PoE basics, originally combining Dual Strike with...
Spoiler
the Bringer of Rain helmet, granting insane APS and DPS but allowing passives to go into life. This build was a challenge, as it attempted to stop all deaths with high life pool but without losing dps, which it achieved after great effort by patch 1.2. The game inherently forces players to choose max dps + low life, high life + low dps or somewhere in the middle. Dual strike needed both, and it was intensely difficult to pull off but I finally took him down Atziri's throat after tons of experimenting, min/maxing passives and special gear selection until the wild murderer you love now was born with one of the worst melee gems in the entire game. In 2.0, strikers more easily attained higher life but nothing much changed. Atziri was killable but Uber Atziri was simply impossible. Then Soup joined... and all of that changed.

Soup joined in the 2.4 update when my life was taking me away from gaming and striking was going stale. From that moment onward dual strike has since enjoyed his augmentations with Voidheart, budget gear and ascendancy classes. He made dual strike far more flexible with gear by introducing Belly of the Beast + Rare Helm combination and created a synergy with the Cloaked in Savagery ascendancy passive and Vaal Pact, granting 100% melee damage leeched as life instantly with the passive plus Vaal Pact instant life leech. From that moment on, our dual striker no longer died unless one-shot and he was the first striker to kill Uber Atiziri. But that simply wasn't enough. After Uber died, striking went viral and there were so many dual strikers running around suddenly that GGG buffed the gem, which made it possible to kill Shaper. That was 350,000 page views and 800 replies ago!!! He shortly after was the first striker to kill Shaper.

All dual strikers can now easily achieve 14 to 18 APS and 8k+ health pool, and passionate strikers who invest can reach 10k life with great gear. 250k budget build dps is considered +/- average and epic strikers reach over 700k since I augmented dual strike with the Might and Influence threshold gem, which both increases its single target dps and gives it splash damage, so you never have to swap gems when clearing or bossing.

And now in 3.0 a new friend has joined to keep Striking strong, Rogue, who even further optimized dual striking by tuning the Soup's Voidheart striker used to kill Shaper and by tuning Soup's budget build in the aftermath of 3.0's good and bad for striking. Rogue has also managed to implement swords and drop several expensive legacy gear pieces including annoying uniques like Soul Taker. Starting only at 5ex, dual strikers can tank T16 map bosses and can double boss all T15's maps while working their way up from budget to epic. Every step you take toward epic makes it more and more unlikely that a mob or enemy will kill you to the point where nothing can kill you at all except the Uber Trio, Uber Atziri and Shaper due to GGG's love for 20-40k damage one shot attacks.

If you want to be truly savage and fearless and clear all content, this build is for you!
~Umbra
P.S. It's because of friends like Soup & Rogue that dual strike kept going past 2.4. They are
the inheritors of dual strike, without whom striking would have stopped in its tracks
and you would be playing a boring ass cookie cutter build

ALL GEAR OPTIONS

ROGUE'S MID-PRICED GEAR


EPIC GEAR MOSTLY
ignore gems here


HOW TO HIT 10K LIFE?
Spoiler
To hit 9000-10k life you need
-ring + ammy 90 life
-30 life voidheart ring if ruthless void striker, or rare 90 life ring here helps a lot if not using voidheart
-200 life kaom boots
-85+ life gloves
-95-150 life helm
-120+ life belt
-175 life hybrid chest or perfect belly of beast chest
-lv94 to reach over 9000, lv100 to reach 10k with all life nodes for my endgame build

At lv 94 with most of that above with Belly I had 9300 life and when not using voidheart ring was at ~9700 life, so those hybrid armors can def push you up to or past 10k life as they are much better than Belly. This is full epic endgame striker.

DISCLAIMER:

1. My gear sucks because I only play the temp leagues and shift my gear around to alts and everything is just a mess in standard.
2. These links are not the end all be all of gem choices! Be creative and modify it to your playstyle!
3. Both set ups can be used with axes or swords, but using swords (not using Soul Taker) means giving up 1 aura, and it is easier to give up an aura with the Brutality set up. Swords allow for Whirling Blades and give a tad bit more dps and life potential, but axes with Soul Taker is much easier to learn with and can be changed later.

Chest




Dual Strike should initially be linked with Melee Physical Damage, Faster Attacks, and then Multistrike. Once you get a 5 link, get your Ruthless gem loaded. Ruthless Blows is solid damage and provides a brief stun. The 6th link will either be Bloodlust or Brutality, depending on the setup you choose, Ruthless Heart or Bruthless.


Helm and Gloves




CWDT should not be leveled past 3, feel free not to level it at all. Take care not to level Immortal Call past your CWDT level. Immortal Call will save you for a split second to let you leech back to full. Your curse, either Vulnerability or Enfeeble, will pop often, but again take care not to level it past CWDT. This is also where I stick the golem for the extra damage.



Your totem must have Chance to Bleed so that it can efficiently keep your target bleeding so that your Bloodlust gem will work properly. Maim not only provides more damage for linked skills, but has the line 'Enemies Maimed by Supported Skills take (10-14)% increased Physical Damage', which means your Dual Strike will also have that 10-14% increased damage. I have Whirling Blades linked here because I more often use WB to charge into a pack rather than Leap Slam. Culling Strike can be used on totem instead with Whirling Blades if using axes, as is Umbra's preference.


Weapons




Leap Slam should be paired with Chance to Bleed, again for max Bloodlust uptime, and the Fortify provides extra mitigation when diving into a scarier pack. Vengeance can be used here as well, instead of Fortify. Feel free to use Endurance Charge on Melee Stun, but I think Fortify with this setup works best.



Lastly, this weapon holds your auras. If using Bloodlust, use Hatred and Herald of Ash. If using Soul Taker, use Arctic Armour as well, instead of Flicker Strike. If using Brutality, use Haste or Grace and Arctic Armour. Vengeance can be used here instead of Flicker Strike if preferred.


Motherfucking Boots


These things are godly. Try to get uncorrupted with a good uber lab enchant with as close to 200 life as possible. Not only do they give you Unwavering Stance, but you cannot be slowed by chill or by Temporal Chains, making your life significantly easier. These boots are amazing, get a pair ready to use for when you hit the required level.

No links, but I felt like addressing these anyway.



1. RUTHLESS HEART DUAL STRIKER
Dual Strike + Multistrike + Faster Attacks + Melee Phys. Dmg. Support
+ Ruthless Blows + Bloodlust

This set up uses Bloodlust for the 6th link and the unique ring Voidheart (legacy not necessary but very helpful) to give us near 100% bleed chance on Leap Slam and totem (and Whirling Blades if using swords).

-Harder to acquire gear for on the temp leagues, and using Voidheart means less resists which increases difficulty capping res and also lack of rare ring can make intelligence an issue.
-More complex gameplay having to keep the bleed on with movement skills or totem or suffer a large dmg loss.
-Much higher dps potential.
-Auras are Hatred and Herald of Ash for lots of extra damage, Arctic Armour as well if using Soul Taker or if fighting Uber Atziri.
-Slightly lower life using Voidheart.


2. BRUTHLESS DUAL STRIKER
Dual Strike + Multistrike + Faster Attacks + Melee Phys. Dmg. Support
+ Ruthless Blows + Brutality

This set up uses Brutality as the 6th link and a rare ring instead of Voidheart. Brutality cuts out all your ele damage and opens some interesting options.

-Easier to build and easier gameplay.
-Higher life without using Voidheart.
-Lower dps, only achieves about 75% dps of what Ruthless Heart is capable of.
-Auras are Arctic Armor + Haste, or use Grace & spend 3 points to get the Iron Reflexes keystone that converts evasion to armor.
-Chance to Bleed in support skills below can be replaced with Melee Phys. Dmg., Stun or End. Charge on Melee Stun gem, Faster Attacks, or whatever helps you the most.


SOME SUPPORT SETUPS

LEAP SLAM SETUP
Link Leap Slam + Fortify + Chance to Bleed or PREFERENCE + Culling Support together: Leap Slam activates fortify (flat damage reduction), it knocks enemies back, it can start a bleed on enemies which dual strike turns into hundreds of thousands of DPS and bosses die at 10% life when slammed. Immortal Call + CWDT activates brief total physical damage immunity when hit and if using Bringer of Rain, blocking can grant endurance charges which discharge when hit to increase Immortal Call's duration. When leap slamming in mobs, you can feel free to put in an Endurance Charge on Melee Stun gem to more easily get endurance charges rather than to cull mobs. They tend to die pretty fast so more layers of defense may be more helpful.

***Whirling Blades is a great option for Sword users!!! Better mobility and bleed will still work fine if you use Ruthless Heart Striker

TOTEM SETUP
Link Ancestral Warchief + Chance to Bleed or PREFERENCE + Culling Strike + Faster Attacks. When you summon a totem, you get a DPS boost and any enemy (even bosses) at 10% health or less will instantly die from the Culling gem on the totem. Chance to bleed is a duhhh for Voidheart users and faster attacks means the chance to bleed will occur faster. You can kill Shaper and Uber Atziri much faster if you drop this when their life is getting close to 10%.

MISC GEMS, Vengeance
Plug this gem in any free socket to get a free chop on most enemies who hit you. Free leech hits and can stun and cause bleed!

POTIONS
Silver flask for great additional APS
Rumi's Concoction (cheap one!!!) for blocking attacks and spells
1-2 Bleed potions, can be instant or non-instant heal if you want
Your choice Basalt or Lion's Roar flask for additional defense or offense (Lion's Roar is my choice)
Honestly you can use whatever potions you want or need. Whatever helps you survive I endorse!

EARLY LEVELING GEAR FOR N00BS xD

Lakishu comes with built-in Multistrike, this will help with mana and damage output early levels. Use Mana leech gem with Melee Splash gem to get AoE with Dual Strike in earlier levels until you are in the center of passive tree and can use the Melee Splash Viridian Jewel. Slowly drop the hammer and sword for either two great rare 1.88+ APS swords or two 1.88-1.90 APS siege axes. You are free to use Soul Taker still if you like it.

Here is a good passive tree for 46ish, just whipped it up with the same number of points spent from your lvl 46 poeplanner tree, grabbing the axe or sword cluster last:

WHY PLAY MY DUAL STRIKER
MARAUDER?
Because he's fun. Because he's the fastest, most visceral build in the entire game. Because when you hack enemies to bits you feel powerful. That's why people play this game...to feel powerful and my build gives you that. Unfortunately this game has become a slogging mess for cheap difficulty mechanics, economy inflation, and skill nerfing. It's tiring! Time to pick up a 3 year old skill that is fun and play this damn game for fun, you know, like a real game and not a chore. This game is nothing but tedium when people play characters with the intention only to get awesome gear using cookie-cutter endgame farm builds. Screw that jazz. Thankfully, you can take my Dual Striker straight down Shaper's throat for some .... fun! Choose another build if you are dumb lol.

WHAT DEFENSE FOCUS COMES
TO MIND WHEN PLAYING?
Spoiler
This is his defense in order of importance numbered below. Remember, this build is very synergistic, where changing one thing impacts the others to varying degrees. It takes time to feel-out this delicate balance!

1. Leech is his #1 defense= sponge damage like the God of War himself in all situations without running, dodging, evading or excessive health potting
2. Life= better sponging and fewer one-shot deaths= tank everything!!
3. Attacks per Second= fast tiny leech hits= instant health recovery
4. Block= negate damage= tank effectively in those hairy situations
NOTE: As of patch 2.4, Vaal Pact improvements and the Dual Strike buff made blocking almost unneeded
***Don't go nuts with armor guys! Your Damage Reduction is a mix of armor rating from Rumi's Concoction/Lion's Roar flasks, Fortify, Arctic Armor and just a couple armor/life/evasion nodes which multiply when you pot with Rumi's. Overall, physical damage isn't a big thread and also armor has little effect on my build since he uses Immortal Call setup for physical damage immunity


WHAT IS HIS
PLAYSTYLE LIKE
AND HOW DOES THE GEMS
& FLASKS WORK?
Spoiler
1) Leap slam into enemies

2) Kill them

3) Repeat.

DO NOT PLAY SAFE. DO NOT EDGE MOBS, LEAP INTO THE CENTER OF MOBS OR YOU WILL DIE. PLAYING IT SAFE CAUSES DEATH.


WHY DUELIST IS SH*T
Spoiler
Why Duelist sucks with my build and why Berserker Marauder is the only real way to do my dual striker--

1. Block is too costly on passives in other ascendancy subclasses. You need Rumi's Concoction for block so you can reach 8000-9000 life to fight Uber Atziri and Shaper. My dude needs every possible health node to be able to take high damage hits without dying. That's where he is both strong and weak, if he doesn't get 1-hit he doesn't die, but he needs his tree to focus on life nodes.

2. Berserker class lets you take savage hits, allowing for 100% of melee damage to be leeched (this is why I can tank the uber trio for a time all 3 at once)

3. My build is a damage sponge, this is at its core. Blocking is too "chance" oriented. It's not a guarantee. Only leech and high life matter in endgame!!!!

4. Duelist nodes are not well optimized for my build at the starting area, meaning endgame is even worse. If it were possible to compensate then that'd be different, but marauder is just the best. He offers everything you need from start to finish on the tree.

There's a lot more reasons but this is good enough


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Spoiler

Immortal Call w/o Endurance Charges?
Charges are not necessary for Immortal Call to work

Can I use Blood Rage to crank DPS since it offers leech too? No, no and no lol that gem crucifies survival even with epic gear once you start running T13+ maps with mods on them because leech is being ruined. A block build would not decrease block for DPS and expect to survive so why would a leech build do that? The added leech percent in the gem does nothing as your leech percent is already high enough to leech a 50k life per split-second. The draining life effect has a process/order to it that interferes with leech even though leech should still be instant, it just isn't anymore. You will die

is this build still viable after the void ring nerf?
Voidheart non-legacy still applies bleed. At 12-18 APS bleed will definitely stack to max in a second flat thanks to passives, it's getting the bleed started that is the biggest need because after that bleed holds automatically for a few seconds so even at 25% chance to bleed from passive tree it becomes ample to maintain bleed. Regardless, he still has 3 sources to *cause the initial bleeding without the ring in non-standard leagues: Leap Slam, Vengeance and Warchief totem.

When you leap into enemies, if they are still alive, you get attacked so vengeance works well, it is second source to apply bleeding. If you see rare monsters you can throw a totem before jump which is the third source to apply bleeding.

Chance to cause bleeding= 1-(1-chance to cause bleeding)^sources for 36% voidheart and 3 sources chance to cause bleeding=76%. if totem deals 5 attacks per second, every attack is a source. so after first second of fight, your enemies will be bleeding with 95.5% chance. after 2nd second 99.5%, after 3rd- 100% if totem is active.

Can this build play reflect maps?
-Yes, I play all mods except "no leech" including all double boss T15 maps with budget builds and T16 tanking with budget build.
-Use Rumi + added fire support gem in dual strike setup for phys. reflect
-Turn off elemental auras and fortify in dual strike setup for ele reflect but this rarely needed
-For those who do not use Soul Taker, no mana leech map mods may be a pain

Stupid question, why you are not using any chest piece?
The Bringer of Rain helm has mod "can't use chest armor" but you can wear any armor for skin, all stats and gems will be ignored but gems will get experience

Is this HC viable?
Yes. I've had a bunch of guys make it past lv90 on hardcore and stop mainly because of gear expenses to reach higher tiers. I've had a few kill Atziri as well!

Can you test how 'actual' version of your builds works? W/o this old expensive stuff?
I tested build without legacy items on every content. Budget version kills T16 iiq100+. I did vaal temple (was t14) with 6 portals, pre-nerf Core with 2 portals (T15 core was true nightmare before atlas expansion) in perandus (no legacy items, 320pdps axe when Voidheart did not even exist). Now with Voidheart both legacy and non-legacy, all of the above is fantastic on budget gear.

It's not really worth getting the endurance charges?
Endurance charges are not important part of build. Dual striker cannot generate them often enough for valuable effect in all scenarios. It's there to help and it does. Immortal Call does not require it anyway to function.

Do you change your gear during the Uber Lab?
1) Flasks swap to all health pretty much. Keep main flasks in inventory for boss.
2) Endurance charges help a bit, 4 link: leap slam- fortify- faster attacks- endurance charge on melee stun is good option there
3) You can always regret Vaal Pact, Uber Lab still very easy with leech without VP

Is there a reason why you chose dual strike as your primary offensive skill? Will other
skills like lacerate work as well?

I created my dual striker to be like the Diablo 2 Smiter Paladin wearing Dracul's gauntlets (only leech mechanic in that game) mixed with the Diablo 2 dual wielding axe barb (w/ ethereal breath of the dying berserker axes) except with the smiter pally attack instead of whirlwind. I loved the speed of his chopping and the speed also made him virtually unkilliable unless he's 1-hit in Diablo 2. My Dual Striker can tank 18 stacks of the Uber Trio's corrupted blood while gaining health haha. He's just nuts. I don't know much about other skills but I do know Cleave is viable but many people say it lacks the speed and feeling of extreme power and becomes unreliable in high tier boss fights. Other skills were slow or boring or limited and didn't make me feel strong and also wouldn't let me tank. I don't like running, skirting, dodging or anything. I'd say those are all reasons why I love my build more than any other.



SO, YOU WANNA FIGHT
UBER ATZIRI DO YA?
Spoiler

BASIC STEPS TO BEATING UBER ATZIRI:

1. The Trio
You can pretty much tank the uber trio if not for that rain of arrows chick in the middle. Nub dat biotch because she can burst damage you insanely fast but ultimately they aren't a threat anymore when you memorize how to kill them. Kill her first and you need to avoid taking damage from the other two guardians while trying to kill her because their combined damage basically insta-kills everyone. Once the girl is dead it's so much easier to stand still and tank. Your health can still plummet fast so make sure you are leeching constantly and bleed pot when you see 8-10 stacks of corrupted blood because the cycloner can dish out dozens in seconds. You can tank 18 stacks but that's only like 1 to 2 cyclones. He's the worst in my opinion because he doesn't deal savage hits making him always able to kill you when it's just him. When all three are there you take a lot of savage hits making you gain 100% of your damage as leech so you're unkillable almost. No harm is some regrouping because by and large the speed of the trio compared to my guy is slow. You can do some footwork safely. If you get attacked attack back though to avoid burst damage. Work your way around the level to make them move their feet too. Like Badminton!

2. Uber Atziri
Avoid most or all of her flameblasts/lightning calls. Yeah, you can take 9/10 of her single attacks, but even with 8k health and tons of extra fire/lightning res she can critical you and you'll get one hit deadeded. In all honesty Shaper is easier to dodge than Uber and she tends to fill the room with flameblasts so don't get antsy and attack too long in a row, it's safest to attack then back off even if you do not yet see the flameblasts being cast. Multistrike can cause a delay in fleeing the flameblasts so just be patient and you'll win. Remember you chose this build for fun, but Uber Atziri was never meant to be fun, she was meant to punish everyone. She was meant to challenge the most hardcore elite players in the game so you may need to be elite too like others have to be.

3. Take your time dude-
She has millions of health and resists just about everything you throw at her. People who fight her well can die easily in more common situations since they are overspecialized. Overspecialization breeds weakness. But you are not weak, just slow. Go slow, time your attacks, plan your moves, monitor her attack patterns and just be relaxed. RELAX. You might not pwn her, but you'll win.

4. Have 10+ex before even considering trying. You will need to memorize the fight. Period. You will die, a lot. But you'll start to develop a winning curve until you win all of the time. Be prepared to invest a lot of exalts into Mortal sets but for those who want to win, they will taste victory


SO YOU WANNA KILL
SHAPER TOO???
Spoiler

Actually Shaper I thought was more straightforward than Uber Atziri but no matter how easy he can seem you'll likely die a couple times to that stupid arena of AoE doom that he's in. With moderate gear to epic gear you can tank Shaper utterly EXCEPT that weird rune void slam explosion thingy, which does like 30,000 so no one can tank that. You can also tank his yellow death beam kamehameha while standing on a degen void on the ground.

Hugging Shaper will force him to use his weak a** melee attack on you, so facetanking is very much more preferable than attacking and running over and over. Practice your footwork to detonate those big grey orbs that follow you around and pop causing the floor to become a degen doom room. Pop them on the outer edges of the arena. I made the mistake of popping one INSIDE Zana's red safety area lol that didn't end well.

The fight itself I think is easier than Uber Atziri because she has elemental attacks that can suddenly fill the entire room to one-shot you plus almost every spell she casts has the potential to kill you even when the spells do not overlap since my build maxes at 9300 life. Her attacks tend to do 8000 minimum and can critical and can penetrate resistances. Uhg! Shaper though only has one attack that can kill you utterly but his arena is very fustercluck of one-shot doom orbs.

I've even encountered Zana dying, which after she does NOT erect the red orb safety area and then those purple armageddon balls one-shot you.

Besides all of this, that's really all there is to killing Shaper. Just a crap ton of life and DPS followed by tedious memory of the scripted one-shot arena sequences. Honestly, without that arena Shaper would be a total newb.

NOTE: The main reason why budget builds can't reliably (or at all) kill Shaper is because the arena eventually kills you after a period of time has passed. It's like a built in timer so without epic axes your DPS will likely struggle to kill him.

Can you do this build in a new league ?
https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/1462987
absolutely yes :D several have already in standard, hardcore, talisman and perandus. Only caveat for hardcore league is that when you finally get to a boss you didn't realize you "can't" tank yet or at all, well, sometimes you aren't lucky enough to get away to fight another day. As this build is tank-only and POE tends to be a trial by fire kind of game, hardcore players can do just fine so long as they slowly explore the limits of the build for the gear that they have.

I make similar build in perandus. At this moment my budget is 5ex (1ex-soul taker, 2ex- good axe, 2ex -rings, rumi, lapis and bor. So i'm in search for gloves, belt, boots and best axe). i don't know how to paste my equip&tree in message but you can look in my profile ZombieSoup character.GEM difference is that I use cwdt-warlords-mark-immortal call-inc. dur.
tree diference is that i took "SplittingStrikes" instead "HatchetMaster". is it my mistake?
also i took resolute, and don't understand what will happens when i respec it because i haven't accuracy at all.

Now at 88lvl i farm T9-11 maps with deaths on lags or in attempt to tanking boss, which we are not acquainted.

great build! best i've played! thx.
