[3.8] 1M+ Shaper Sunder Gladiator on a Budget! 2M+ realistic! League Starter

Hello guys and gals,

welcome to my Sunder Build.

Do you like my guides?
Help me build a new computer as mine is dying currently and I can not afford a new one: https://www.patreon.com/AkumaNoTsubasa

3.8 INFOS
Nothing changed, we are just as awesome as always!


Guide Start

At the moment I am killing T15 maps in which I mostly only die because I react to slow. I could not yet test any Guardians, Shaper or Uber Atziri as I never got any of the maps for them.

Pros:
1. Fast Attacker
2. Easy to play
3. Kinda Tanky

Cons:
1. Can't do physical reflect maps
2. Can't do no leech maps

How does this build work?

Sunder is a "Melee" Skill with a range, which makes it a lot easier to evade everything that is being thrown at us. We are playing on a dual wield.

So all we do is: 1. Get in range of the enemy, hold right mousebutton and watch stuff die.
If anything is thrown at us, just use Leap Slam to evade stuff.

What gear is mandatory?
Really mandatory is nothing. You can fully play the build with 2 rares to get some currency BUT the build is so budget friendly that you will be able to buy your endgame items that bring you to t15 for less than you'd even imagine.

But I suggest the following uniques to make life easier:


Depending on the starter price, take either Jack, the Axe or Soul Taker as the main weapon.
Soul Taker is preferred because it is stronger then Jack but mostly costs much more than Jack and can make you fall for the "no mana needed to attack".

Kaom's Roots: Stun immunity, freeze immunity, can't be slowed under standard movement speed an lots of life. Nothing else needed.

Cinder Swallow Urn: Those awesome Item. Pop it while mowing down and you just can't die. Prefer 3% life mod ignore the rest. As Veilmod "Damage Taken Leeched as Life", "Reduced Mana Cost" or "Life Regen" are the mods we want. I prefer Life Regen.

Taste of Hate: Awesome Endgame Item. Expensive but packs a damn punch. Only get when you find the cards or are a rich bitch.

As Leveling Weapons we now take:
Bright Beak from Level 20
Flesh-Eater from Level 32

Old League Gear (Harbinger League) IGNORE THE SOCKETS AND GEMS ON THOSE EXAMPLE ITEMS:


Remember: Those items are only an EXAMPLE they are NOT live gear. They only show you how bad the gear can be while still reaching now a whooping one million shaper DPS! Also Swords (Prismatic Elcipse) may NOT be worn anymore!)

Gems and Links:
All in Order of importance

1. Sunder Setup: Sunder + Melee Physical Damage + Fortify + Ruthless + Maim + Concentrated Effect

2. Leap Slam: Leap Slam + Faster Attacks + Blood Magic + Dash (Level 13! Only level higher if you have enough DEX)

3. Vaal Ancestral Warchief: Vaal Ancestral Warchief + Melee Physical Damage + Bloodlust + Concentrated Effect

4. Utility 1 (In Axe): Steelskin + Cast when damage taken + Immortal Call

5. Utility 2 in Offhand: Arctic Armor + Pride + Blood and Sand


Crafts
Interesting Weapon Crafts to use in order of possible importance:
1. %Phys Damage + Impale
2. Non-Chaos damage as extra Chaos Damage


Build Tree (Step 1): Tree 1
Rush to Resolute Technique

Build Tree (Step 2): Tree 2
Go to the Mana Leech node first, then fill out as you want/need. I prefer the Axe Nodes left.

Build Tree (Final): Link to Build. Click me
Warning: We are respeccing one STR and one DEX node to save one point in the endgame tree. Those are the two nodes before Warriors blood. One of the points go before the Bloodless into the STR node. Keep that in mind when gearing up.

Bandits: Kill all

Ascendancy: Blood in the Eyes -> Gracious Violence -> -> Outmatch and Outlast -> Arena Challenger

Path of Building Link: https://pastebin.com/nzYeEHdw

Pantheon:
Big god: Brine King until you got Kaom's Roots, else Solaris for bossing and Lunaris for mapping
Small god: Whatever you like. Gruthkul might be the most interesting one.

Damage we actually do
**Needs complete Rework**

@AkumaNoTsubasa this is hands down the best guide every created for any build I've ever seen. Love how you incorporated colors with gems and have the multiple skill tree's for leveling. Everyone should take note of this when creating a build guide. Great job!


I want to support you
Thanks for asking how to support as a thanks, I REALLY appreciate that! But I can't have paypal so I am totally out of luck with that. But if you really want to support me, I'd gladly welcome some stuff to test builds or just to have fun (I really don't care if that is in a current league or just standard).
Even though I don't think this will ever happen.
Builds I would currently like to do (but would never ever be able to afford) are the following:
1. LL RF ES Occultist
2. some facetank everything cast when damage taken spell inferno char

Thanks. nice to hear :)

At first I went to Resolute Technique so I never miss a hit, then I went to the Axe cluster on the left side and the Lifewheel and took what ever I needed most in that situation. After you got those you can max out the duelist area.

Added the Bandits selection: Kill all for 2 points

For the answer, let me quote the description of Sunder:
"
Requires a Mace, Axe, or Staff.

What exactly do you mean ? Until Level 12 when you get sunder?
Or Leveling trees?
