======================================================================================
Frost Blades Gladiator is one of the most iconic builds of the past and patch 2.6.0 specifically. From level 1 to level 95+ you can just level with ONE SKILL. It has great clear speed, moderate boss damage and gains a lot of tankiness through high block chance! Superb League Starter!

FAQ
1) Why you don't use Blood Rage?
Spoiler

You can use it for Shaper/Atziri/Ubers but for mapping and for the most of the game i found it SUPER ANNOYING. At 10 APS, Blood Rage does not give insane boost, yet it annoys a lot since we degen very fast at 6k HP and Vaal Pact.

2) Can i Kill Uber Atziri / Uber Elder? Shaper at least?
Spoiler

Shaper can be done for sure. I did it quite easily. Uber Elder = maybe if you have really high DPS swords (450-500-600 pdps), insane steel rings and use Blood Rage with Perseverance for permanent Onslaught (so, pretty glass-cannon setup). Uber Atziri can be done without insane DPS i guess. Just need tankiness and quick hands.

I have to say you are using 2 legacy flasks (Lion's roar and Atziri's promise). Also you don't have curse/shock removal/immunity in your build which greatly increases chance to die during mapping. Also you are stating you have high block chance but you have only 43% block which is not high.

Indeed i am using them. I created this build in Legacy League, so i just have them. The extra 5% does not matter though.
As for block chance, i would divide it into 3 categories: low block 20+, high block 40-60 with Rumi, max block 70+ with shield. Assuming many block characters will use Rumi while dual wielding, hence why i would consider this as high block. You can easily run most content with 40 block on the tree or get to 60 with Rumi.

You created this guide with title "[3.3] 2018 edition" not in legacy league but 2 weeks ago and you are using legacy items in it.

Yeah, and what exactly is the problem with that? Character is on standard now. For a long long time already actually. I see absolutely no problem with 2 legacy flasks. They give no impact whatsoever.

Ive been trying this for incursion event, minus a few differences (i play with frostbite coz i don't like kaom boot so i have 4 free socket availiable and with amulet who gives it for free its perfect.) i have the exact Tree you did.
I'm lvl 88, i do 250k dps when all buff/procs and flasks but there is one problem: i'm weak as fuck, i can't even do T13 maps... So i dunno if it's my gameplay whose wrong but...
