Imp Blood Magic/Resolute Technique/2h Mace Build (Filtered v1)
*I do know a build similar to this was featured on GGG's youtube channel, this build is going to be a HOPEFULLY streamlined and modern version*
Molten Shield (Bonus armor is great)
Or, the second option is the Kripparrian version
ICE WALL GROUND SLAM EVERYTHING TO DEATH
I would love to do this once I get my hands on Ice Wall. WHERE ART THOU SKILL GEM WHERE ART THOU
Current build I'll be aiming for with my Marauder as he progresses. I realize not everyone will hit max level, so I will be coming up with different versions for different levels, also I'll be incorporating a similar build for sword and board type marauders. This build focuses entirely on blood magic/resolute technique and using a 2h mace.
As you progress and the game difficult increases most of us quickly realize, and some of us have always realized that resistances and tankiness play a ginormous role in how far, and how well you can progress. At the highest levels in games such as the various Diablo's and similar ARPGs we can find that Tankier/Life on Hit type builds work extremely well for the Barbarian/Warrior/Marauder etc etc. (Just look at Kripparrians Barbarian in D3, absurd damage/life on hit)Due to the fact that this game is extremely different, we won't see something like that at all(animation canceling, spell abilities while moving currently isn't an option in POE).
Aside from the generalized statements, this build is for the person who wishes to still feel like they dish out damage while being a massive pain in the rear for all enemies nearby. Relying on finding an amazing 2h mace so really cover for the lack of damage passives (I think I've only taken about 7 or so), and working with your armor to cover for any lack of stats. I find that the most important part of this build is the quality of your mace. (Focus on it)
Later, I will probably present some skill sets and gear ideas. This is only as I become a better player and less of a theorycrafter.
(Been playing the game since open weekend started, so not very long)
Any ideas, or critique is certainly welcome I only wish to improve on this.
(Sword and Board build possibly coming later in the day)
