I know that's a kinda common question to ask. but It will be viable at the Blight League? I'm looking foward to do this build, It seems pretty fun.

Also I'm wondering if it is possible to be a league starter and what shield and how to fit Reckoning until The Surrender.

Will be viable for any league as it does not use any league gear
Starter is good indeed, but will take some time to get the shield. But if you get lucky on currency you will get one very early on

Thanks so much for the reply! I'll definetly try it out on Blight. I still dont understand how do you manage Cyclone (on the mana side) on the build, and where to stick Reckoning until the The Surrender but I'll try it out! I'm really pumped up to it, actually comming back to the game to try this build Hahahhaha

good question btw! Will add it to FAQ section
Cyclone is a little tricky. First you will be playing with Wurm's Molt belt which leeches mana with attack damage. Next when you unlock tier 2 "reduced mana cost"(tier 3 takes a while and is NOT NEEDED) betrayal mod you will craft it on a ring and your Cyclone cost will go down from 9 to 7. You will still have 2 mana cost and when you drop the Wurm's Molt you will slowly but steadily loose you mana anyway.
Next step is to get reduced mana cost on the tree:

By getting the FIRST node you immidiately drop mana cost from 2 to 1 and can naturally OUTregenerate the cost.
For the REckoning : while levelling simply put it in the boots or helm along with Vengeance and Riposte + Melee phys/pulverize.

According to guide, Griswarld amulet is recommended. However, in the build we take no claw nodes so we could benefit more. Is the amulets crit modifier so high that we do not need to care about the "unallocated" claw nodes?

Wouldn't the anvil amulet or other amulets be recommended?

Thank you for the guide is quite fun to play with it :)

Its only for base unarmed crit. Claw nodes are too far away and not worth it

First of all the build is very tanky. I am at level 70 and already doing T16 corrupted maps just have to avoid mods like less block chance. Other than that really enjoying it. Here is my current gear and its not even min maxed I simply grabbed whatever I have in my repository.


Also I didnt buy facebreaker with curse simply vaaled and it gave me curse.


Why are you using impale as build doesn't have 100% impale chance. Wouldn't this simply make impale not stack properly and wasted ?

Why not use infused channeling ? What gem should I replace with infused channeling.(I am able to take infused channeling as I am using unnatural instinct near scion bottom area for extra )

Is amulet really that good and it cant be replaced. If it can be what is good alternatives ?

Would lethal pride gives any extra bonus

Chance to Block Attack Damage is doubled
Chance to Block Spell Damage is doubled
You take 50% of Damage from Blocked Hits
And I have also killed guardians at level 72 with crap flasks.

Basic impale support is more than enough to stack impale.
Infused channelling requires a lot of int.
Without the amulet you cannot crit with unarmed attacks.
Lethal pride is not needed since block cap is easy to reach by default

Thanks for the build, I'm really enjoying this as a novelty. Certainly makes for a tanky build. Got a few questions, given the current state of my gear.

1. I know the "rage" question was answered as used by "Reckoning", but the flavor text concludes with:
"
with weapons


Double checking against POB, I can't find evidence that Rage stacks are actually benefiting the Reckoning hits. What am I missing?

2. If Rage isn't helping, seems like "Pulverize" or "Maim" be a good gem to slot in it's place in a 5 or 6L setup for the cyclone links (at least if you don't have the maim on the body armor.

1) Unfortunately Counterattacks are in a grey area of POB and it can't handle them properly. For the same reason Painforged does not reflect 2x damage.
I will ask Openarl to check it, but considering the amount of feedback he gets i doubt we will ever have a reply :)

2) I would still use RAGE as it gives a lot of movement speed and attack speed for Cyclone.
