[3.2] - Blade Flurry Crit Block Gladiator - 2M DPS - All content viable


Introduction

Welcome to my Blade Flurry Crit Block Gladiator. This build is very tanky and have a lot of DPS.
You can uber-lab, you can Atziri, it is very easy to kill Elder and his guardians, you can kill Shaper, probably you can kill Uber-Atziri with this build, but I didn't try.

[3.2] Update: I'm still using Gratuitous Violence, sacrificing Violent Retaliation.

Pro's & Con's

+ High clearspeed on maps
+ High survivalbility
+ Easy to play
+ 2 million DPS with conc.effect(1,2 million with increased AOE), scale dmg by getting a sword with more pdps, 63% block chance(applied to spells), good crit chance

- Can't run phys reflect maps
- Pretty expensive

Leveling
"

Spoiler
While leveling you can use any skill you want, I was playing with Cleave/Cyclone.

Preffered gear while leveling:
Body armour: Tabula Rasa, if you have Wall of Brambles 5-6link use it instead
Helmet: Goldrim, once you get aurumvoraxes, swap it with Fairgraves' Tricorne, then swap it back with Goldrim once you get Chitus' Needles(30lvl)
Boots: Wanderlust(or if you can afford seven-league step)
Belt: Meginord's Girdle
Weapon: The Screaming Eagles -> 2 Aurumvoraxes -> 2 Chitus' Needles -> 2 Gryphons -> 2 Daresso's Passions -> Scaeva
Gloves: Lochtonial Caress, then try something like Giantsbane, then Meginord's Vise
Rings: 2 Blackhearts, then upgrade into 2 Bloodboils or 2 Le heup of all
Amulet: Karui Ward -> Ignomon -> Astramentis(optional) or something like Carnage Heart(not legacy)


Ofc you can level with whatever you want.


Pantheon
"

Major


Soul of Lunaris
Mainly I use this, it is pretty good for mapping, but it's kinda useless, since you can't evade attacks if you picked up Unwavering stance on passive tree. I use this only cuz of damage reduction.

Soul of Solaris
Great for bosses, you can also capture some souls for this, should be fine.

Minor


Soul of Ralakesh
Try to get Drek's soul, it will grant you awesome additional bonuses.



Gems
"

OLD one 1,5mil DPS, don't recommend to use it now
"
6 Link - Blade Flurry setup

Use Conc. Effect instead of increased AOE on bosses

2,3 mil DPS setup(didn't tested): BF -> Conc. Effect. -> Melee Phys. DMG -> Bloodlust -> Maim -> Damage on full life. If you'd like to try this, link chance to bleed to your warchief setup and use it to cause enemies bleeding(something like Warchief -> Conc. effect -> Melee Phys. DMG -> Chance to bleed)


"
4 Link - Shield charge setup


"
4 Link - Ancestral Warchief setup

UPD: This setup is absolute shiet. Better use Ancestral Warchief - Concentrated Effect - Ruthless - Melee Physical Damage


"
4 Link - Buffs - Blood Rage, Vaal Haste, Enduring Cry


"
3 Link - Counter-attacks and Ice golem(Reckoning LVL 30 in The Surrender shield)


"
3 Link - Auras

Note: Try to get 20%+ quality Hatred gem for additional AOE.


"

Currently I'm playing with 1) Blasphemy -> Enlighten -> Assasin's Mark -> Hatred
2) CWDT -> Summon ice golem -> Tempest shield
Assasin's Mark is better than HoA i think, it's like 1,9mil dps in pob using it
Will rework this section soon.



Current setup 1.9mil DPS

6 Link - Blade Flurry setup


5 Link - Blade Flurry setup

Gear

Current gear:


Gear discussion:

Belly of the Beast is the best body armour you can get, but you can use lightning coil/rare life armour instead of it.
Abyssus will provide huge DPS boost, if you're playing on standard, get a legacy one with 200%+ crit multiplier.
Maligaro's Virtuosity is pretty good gloves for this build. But you can use Spiked Gloves instead of it. The best gloves you can get for this build is a legacy Atziri's Acuity, but it is extremely expensive.
Jewelled foil is a good rare base for this build, try to get it with 320+ pDPS and 1.8+ APS. You can also try to find other one handed sword with such dps and aps. Pretty good and very cheap variant - unique Scaeva.
The surrender - I think it is the best unique shield for this build, try to get one with 110+ max.life. Lycosidae(+500k dps for me, but less armor and life) and Aegis Aurora are really good shields for this build too.
Taste of Hate - this is very nice flask, it grants you a lot of DPS, but if you don't have it you can use Rumi's Concoction instead of it.
Bisco's Collar - you can use it while mapping, but the perfect one is kinda expensive.

Carnage Heart is really good amulet, that grants you a lot of damage, lifeleech speed, some attributes and resists. Pretty good while lvling.


Note: it is very important to have anti-bleeding life flask.

Try it. But I recommend you to use abyssus or rat's nest
Don't really understand why my hp always go down in this build.

You can try to use Rumi's Concoction flask, it will max out your block chance. Get a rapier with more APS, jewelled foil is preferred
how it feel on tier 15 maps?
