[3.13] Scuffed Series: Jack the axe Bladestorm Glad - Max Block, 2000 Life leech. [League starter]

[3.13] Blood Thirst Bladestorm Glad



This is my first forum published build made for my unique Jack, the Axe.

This build will allow you to clear all content while exploding enemy's in to piles of gore.

This build is based around the Special skill given by Jack, The Axe.

"Thirst for Blood" Allows you to do more flat bleed damage and leech up to 2000life a second. This Leech is stand alone and can stack with other hp gain sources.

Levelling tips:
Spoiler


A common levelling practice I use for all melee builds is to start with whatever fast attacking ability I can get, normally splinting steel, until I get cyclone and that gets me to what ever level my builds kick off. I would recommend using a two hander to level, Blood reaper being a great levelling weapon, until you get Jack and some good gear around 65-70.




Playstyle:
Spoiler

Pop all buffs

Leap in, Sand Bladestorm, Leap, Sand Bladestorm

Pop Blood Bladestorm on tankier enemy's to speed up clear

Pop Blood Bladestorm and Berserk on boss mobs for fast kill.



That's about it guys. I hope you enjoy my guide and build. Stay tuned for more.

Pretty good price for the axe. was 20c at league start. im mixed about it going down in price.

just something ill suggest for boss, use dread banner.

Most boss's will melt but ive noticed slow kill speed on heist endgame boss's, like the twins, to be rather slow unless you have dread and pop it at 50 stacks.

aside from that. no alterations needed. scales well with gear.

Uniq axe is OP, got it in act 9 for 10c, carry me from a10 to t14 maps.

Looks like I will not replace it soon, for bleed builds, only the elder axe is better, which was maden in harvest, all another weapons lose for thirst of blood skill.

Officially, now the best axe in the game is this one.
