The Ultimate Melee DPS/TANK [FACEBREAKER ONSLAUGHT GUIDE]

Revealing my onslaught marauder build which uses Cyclone - has extreme survivability and physical damage for anyone who wants to play a melee build that is equally or more viable than any other "OP" build in high level maps and solo play. The build is able to clear maps with incredible speed and solo any high level map boss in the game - with ease. It's also 5-10 times as cheap as any other high end build, making it the best build you can use if you don't have much currency.

Check out these videos if you want to learn more about this build:

Thx for the videos and the guide!

Wanted to find a good use for these :)


now to get my hands on a bringer of rain!
great videos and build! I just gathered the uniques necessary for the build and am working on boots, and jewelry.

Could you possibly add a link to your passive tree please? I see it in the video but it's so much easier to be able to pull it up myself :)

I'd would be interesting to know the gems in the helm/boots, couldnt catch them all on the video.

Also, how do you do when you face lightning thorns ?

edit : since i'm trying again after a few months break, any idea on those uniques price ?

That looks right :) ty!

Blood Magic, Cyclone, Concentrated Effect, and Life Leech are in the Helm.

Enduring Cry, Enfeeble, and Decoy Totem are linked to blood magic.

the rest of the auras: Grace, Purity, Determination, Hatred, Haste. Grace is run on life. The rest are reserving all the mana. Reduced mana gem ofc linked to the auras when u activate them :)

Is the attack spd and movement speed boost from haste that important? Wouldn't running vitality be better?

Weird, i could swear that on the video, he has reduced mana+grace+purity+determination on the gloves then blood magic + hatred +haste on the boots (which doesnt show on his life, but check 9:00 to 9:10 on part 2)

however, it makes way more sense to swap grace and hatred/haste.


But, let's say on boots you have blood magic, enfeeble, decoy totem, enduring cry

On the shield, you would still have to put blood magic + grace. And you cant have haste in the 3rd sockets, since we'd see the low life reserved.


Weird, am i missing something ?

he has grace reserved to life using the covenant, not a blood magic gem if that's what you're asking?

The build you posted is very unoptimised. You can drop the less crit damage taken nodes for a strength node and save a point, and you waste another near Blood Magic in the circle. You can drop it down from the armour nodes and save a point.

Edit: Regarding Haste vs Vitality, Haste gives much more benefit considering Vitality only gives around 1.77% life regen, which is only marginally better than Troll's Blood. However, Haste gives 16% attack speed, worth roughly 4 passives, and movement speed, worth another one passive. Much more bang for your buck.

Possible respec to RoA?

Wouldn't this passive allocation be significantly more efficient?

It isn't optimized but you are mistaken if you think the less crit damage nodes are not worth the investment... considering the biggest threat to dying in hardcore is being 1 shot, which is likely to occur under crits.
