Hey, thanks! This looks good to me.
Yo.

I can't bring myself to playing a marauder lab farmer. Dunno why. Mb cuz the beafy muscles or something. Or voice acting. Dunno. Also no totems, not my thing.

Last time i intended to and did farm uberlab was with a ngamahu slayer, which was both fun and efficient (but sure as hell helped by a bunch of RNG prayers, xoph's blood 3rd day in the league, etc ..) anyway i was looking into a lab farmer duelist (no-totemer) and this one seems fun...

Sooo will definetely give it a shot once i can get to the uberlab. :D
Thanks for the guide anyways.
Thank you for the build.

Love it so far. Just did my first ulab wich was also a full chest run.
Had no troub at all with lvl 75 (2h Izaro,Charges,Gargoyls). Missing only the Kaom's Roots because i still need rare boots for res

This build is absolutly awesome to run lab. Never had such a pleasent lab farmer

Similar to the above poster, I also just finished my first lab today, and it was very successful. I'm going to try taking the "First to Strike, Last to Fall" ascendancy, as opposed to taking "Fortitude" to see how it goes. I'm using one of the cleave jewels, so pretty much have perm fortify anyway. Just curious if anyone is doing something similar, since Inspirational also seems strong for the move speed & extra dmg. Might respec if there's a strong reason to change.

So far so good though - Hank certainly is a tank! Didn't feel bad in the lab at all. Thx for the build!
Do not use Kaoms Roots in 3.2! We are stun immune with permanent Fortify. We do not want to use Unwavering Stance. We can now benefit from the Blind support Bringer of Rain provides. With our insane attack speed it should have a decent uptime.

With the boot slot open we have 4 sockets to play with.

Currently experimenting with the build myself. Cannot decide if I want to go full tank or more offensive.

Determination, Grace, Brutality, Iron Reflexes
vs.
Hatred, Herald of Ash, Arctic Armour, Chaos Golem, Concentrated Effect, Atziris Promise, some crit nodes

The latter would be for farming using Inc AoE/Conc Effect with more damage. Ichi's is really bad for crit though ;-).

Try Vengeance + Riposte + Knockback/Ruthless + Life Gain on Hit.

Blind has no use since we have Iron Reflexes. Blind only applies to the target's chance to hit, with no Evasion they will always hit.

If I understand the formulas correctly https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Blind that is not correct since Blind is a multiplier on its own. PoB shows this too. Activating blind lets you evade at least 50% of all attacks. Even with Iron Reflexes.

On top of that Blind affects the enemy's crit chance.

That is definnitely not true. If you don't have Evasion, then monsters will always hit you unless you have Dodge. But Dodge is independent from Evasion and cannot be affected by Blind.

It's chance to hit * 0.5 = effective chance to hit. It halves the base hit chance of enemies.

This requires Evasion because chance to hit is determined via Evasion vs Accuracy Rating.

And PoB accounts for it correctly. No Evasion means no Blind effect.
