[3.23] Sunder Build | Berserker | Affliction | Path of Exile 3.23

Hey guys, sunder berserker build is here. Sunder is a melee slam attack skill that creates a slow-moving area of effect wave forward. Enemies hit by the wave release circular shock waves that further damage nearby enemies. The wave continues to move past its minimum distance until a new wave is created.
Using Brutus' Lead Sprinkler, this sceptre has "Adds 4 to 7 Fire Damage to Attacks with this Weapon per 10 Strength" mod. I manage to hit 2313 str at level 96.

Just wanna mention that you pump out really cool builds! Would u please try to make one that is <20 divines?
Can i ask how tanky you are? It seems that i have problem with my survivability and i'm not sure where is the issue.
hello , how can u run all auras ?

It looks like this build/PoB was only partially updated for 3.2.3. Calc config is still using Anomalous Sunder which no longer exists despite the tree being updated for Affliction. 28 million+ DPS is still possible with regular sunder.

Cost is incorrect, getting decent items and rolls on the jewels runs at least 100div on both standard and affliction.


Missing from the 3.2.3 changes, you can buy Ursine charms with 8% increased strength on them and socket in the Primalist tree. I'm up to 5300 life and 2100 strength. With Sunder of Earthbreaking 20/20, mid-budget gear, all jewels, landing at 9.6m DPS with flasks active.

Update 2:

Sitting at 14m DPS with 21/20 sunder, 5500 life. I'd recommend leveling to 97 for "15% increased maximum life" Life Mastery which adds about 3000 to your EHP. This mastery is new to 3.2.3.

If you're playing Affliction, consider passing on the 20div+ Watcher's Eye and go for "That Which was Taken" with "8% increased strength" and "damage penetrates 6% of enemy elemental resistances". Cap chaos resist with your rings.
