[3.4 No mirror facetank ] Reave + DS+ BF (Fast, Tanky, Hdps) -> HC , Miner, All Contents,
Every Facetank reave + double strike + bladeflurry Build
There is so many glass cannon Melee build could uber-elder
But there is no facetank Melee build with High dps, mapping speed.
because of this reason i want to share how to facetank with Melee build.
this build doesn't need super high cost gear,
and very good to starter for shaper kill.
you can also easily do all contents
but if you want to kill uber-elder very easily,
need some currencies (not very much)
Sorry my English is bad.
build forum is kept updated.
So if you have any opinion or question. leave reply :D
Thanks a lot of help ! Mooginator :D
Why not Vaalpact and Slayer?
Vaal pact is really not work well , Even with 20ex+ or mirror claws.
there are some big problem.
1. We cannot get stable life leech.
even if we have
vaal pact 40%
+ slayer (leech is not stopped)
+ Watcher's eye vitality life recovery rate 33%
+ 50% from pantheon.
+ 6% maximum life leech (12 passvies nodes spent ) .
if we could not get 100% maximum of life leech rate per second.
this leech rate could not tank so many boss. there are slayer videos on youtube.
almost 99% of them can kill boss very fast, but they cant do full party .
because they cant tank without flasks.
even have to dodge skill during solo.
2. loss Champion Node. ,
we lost all champion nodes, fortify, taunt, intimidated, movementspeed,
fortify reduce 20% physical damage.
taunt reduced 10% all damage, even boost 10% more dps.
intimidated boost 10%more dps.
and 8% movement speed.
3. we loss 12 passvie nodes.
if we use vaal pact . we have to get maximum life leech from nodes and amulet.
we can get 6% of it from nodes using 12 points.
12 passives nodes is almost 35-50% maximum life or 25~40% more dps.
4. have to use vitality Aura >> Cant use determination.
(life recovery watchers' eye. )
we Cant handle critical damage anymore.
reduce armour too.
5. No more regen (loss 13%-20%) .
feel it. it is very not good stability.
If we use good mirror claw and vaal pact.
30~40more dps ( 20ex~ 1mirror claw).
we life leech is not stopped when full life.
20% increased damage (1-2 nodes)
20% area effect (1-2 nodes)
Can do physical reflect
Can't facetank huge damage skill , Shaper 3ball, Aul, Lich, So many dps maps boss.
fortify (20% physical damage reduction)
taunt (10% less damage taken, 10%more dps )
intimidated ( 10% more dps)
12passvies point ( 40-50% maximum life or 25~40% more dps )
Determination (armour + 60 critical damage reduction)
Lost 13% regen (19% pantheon)
8% movement speed
So Same dps,
We loss Huge Tankiness,
Instant Leech ( Super Op cuase GGG nerfed instant leech 'Vaal pact'
This is reason why i don't like overleech melee build. Grass-Cannon And expensive.
And so many people know that Overleech build could get dps but not tanky.
How to do 700+ mines
We need only 1 cheap spare glove for very deep mines ( or Fucking high dps mods)
Enfeeble curse on hit is essential for super high dps mods.
blade flurry + melee physical + damage on full life + maim
VDS + melee physical + damage on full life + chance to bleed
if you really dont want to take off assasin mark ring. use it.
Good and Bad
Leveling Guide (Thx. mooginator )
This build is great (and easy) to level. I was able to complete the story in ~7 hours. Below is a breakdown of the recommended gear/items, and skill tree buildout.
First, we use Vaal Double Strike to level. Once you get Ancestral Call at 4, it's cake and will take you all the way to using Reave. It also melts bosses.
To start, use VDS(Frost blade)+ AC+ Onslaught+ Bleed
(you can use frost blade, smite on the body
but have to put 4L - VDS on another position)
Level up all of the end-game gems listed below. I recommend buying them from the vendor with another character (if you can). If not, you'll get them as you progress. You want 2x swords or axes in your second weapons set with the proper colors to level gems you can't equip (or don't need).
Switch to Reave at 46 when you can use Ornament of the West - but swap in Double Strike for bosses and Lab until you can get the Shaped gloves around 70
main hand : blood magic +whirling blade +faster attack
Offhand: blind+ Vaal ancestral warchief+ chance to bleed
Helm: CWDT+ ice golem +blood rage + immortal call
Chest: Reave + damage on full life +Hypo+Multi+ melee physical + increased area effect
Gloves: VDS+ melee physical damage + Damage on full life +Multi
Boots: hatred+ enlighten(3)+ herald of purity + herald of ash
1: Redbeak x2
1: Blackheart x2
5: Karui Ward
6: The Screaming Eagle
10: Princess x2
16: The Magnate Studded Belt
20: + int Ring
20: Tempestuous Steel (offhand)
22: Praxis (-8 mana)
28: Get Armor Flask
28-29: Lakishu's Blade or Relentless Fury (main hand)
30: Thief's Torment
46: Ornament of the West
53: Prismatic Blade (offland)
60: abyssus OR starkonja's head
60-64: Stat Stick (offhand)
68: The Red Tail Titan Greaves
cold resistance + jewel socket
Path of the warrior
Fangs of the Viper
Sleight of Hand
Claws of the Pride
Claws of the Magpie
After getting 'Path of duelist'
put duelists nodes
Pantheon and Bandits

Seems to good to be true! I mean, i am happy it seems so cheap!
1)May i ask ya why you choose Double strike instead of blade flurry?
2) I guess for bandits: you kill'em all!?
3) Ascendency priority and pantheon plz!
Tkx in advance

Looks interesting but what combination of fossil do you use to craft your scepter? serrated or jagged?
on Sep 21, 2018, 2:59:26 PM
Tkx for the answer!
One more question: i can't find your amulet with the same mods for determination on it. So Do i take hatred or determination until i got it?
Tkx again in advance.
