Since you will be fightning unnarmed you can only use certain attack skills. Those skills are Infernal Blow; Dominating Blow; Cyclone; Frenzy and Elemental Hit. My skill of choice is Infernal Blow. Below i'll compare the other skills to Infernal Blow

Dominating Blow
Pros.
+ Your minions will take lots of the incoming damage instead of you(making you even more tanky)
+ Having Monster auras is very useful

Cons.
- Insane mana cost... it's almost unusable if you run 2 auras(and if you don't you'll lose alot of offense or deffense)
- Less DPS
- Parties usualy don't like Dominating Blow users

Cyclone
Pros.
+ Better vs Single targets ( if the targets really are single and not surrounded by a pack of other monsters )

Cons.
- Less AoE
- Terrible Desync
- High mana cost

Frenzy
Pros.
+ Higher Attack speed

Cons.
- Less AoE
- You need to waste skill points in order to get extra frenzy charges
- Higher mana cost

Elemental hit
I won't even comment this skill... it's totaly unusable with Facebreakers due to the 0% synergy between them!

Infernal_Blow

What Infernal Blow really can and can't do
Spoiler
So what can i say about Infernal blow? It is extremely good at killing alot of monster all at the same time. It does that due to the incredable and deadly explosion that it creates when you kill an enemy with it. Its great that you will explode monster simply by hitting them with the splash damage from the Melee Splash support gem. So you don't really need to kill an enemy in order to explode him. It's enough to kill the monster that you are currently hitting, he will explode the damage from that explosion will kill the monsters next him/her/it and because he was just hit by your splash damage he will explode aswell and so on and so on. The Quality of the Infernal Blow (+1% increased Area of Effect radius for each 1% quality) will affect the explosion's radius aswell as the splash damage radius and the same goes for the Melee Splash quality. Since all map bosses have a pack of magic(blue) monsters it's really very easy to kill them. Just start hitting the boss, the pack of monsters will come close to you to attack you(if they are melee) , then your splash will kill and explode them and their exploding corpses will deal tremendous amounts of damage and usualy kill the boss. If the pack of magic monsters are range then just lure the boss closer to them. Elemental and physical reflect won't trouble you at all! If you are in a high level map (74+) i suggest to swap your "Melee Physical damage" support with Life Leech support gem. With the new trigger skills and with your life leech and Vaal Pact you won't even notice them! It's important to note that reflected damage will trigger them. Not leaving anything for these damn necromancers to resurrect is helpfull aswell, actualy Infernal Blow will prevent any on deaht effects to occure(like the spike nova of the Porcupine Goliaths). Infernal Blow has very low mana cost and it's easy to cast it non-stop without any extra mana related buffs from your gear. Overall this is probably the best skill for a Facebreaker in general and IT IS the best skill for a CI Facebreaker, lot's of damage; lots of AOE; low mana cost; no weaknesses. Just flawless!


Pros.
Spoiler
+ High Damage
+ Large Area of Effect
+ Low Mana cost
+ Cool looking bloody explosions
+ Mixed Damage

Cons.
Spoiler
-No cons. At all.

What will be left from your enemies:
Spoiler

Auras

Hatred - the facebreakers and your gear will give you ALOT of physical damage and that will result in alot of bonus cold damage from this aura.
Discipline - it will boost you Energy Shield by... alot

I'll mention Blood Rage here. It will slightly increase your DPS due to the Frenzy charges that you will get. The Best thing is the Life leech. Having lot's of life leech combined with Vaal Pact is great combination and Blood Rage will provide that high life leech values.

triggered_skills

The trigger gem is Cast When Damage Taken. When you link a spell to it( including curses and buffs) it will trigger the linked spell when you take a certain amount of damage(440 at level 1). When you level up the Cast When Damage Taken gem the damage threshold is increased ( i.e. 560 at level 3) and the damage that the linked spells will do when triggered is increased( at level 1 the spells deal 70% less damage and at level 3 - 62%). The linked spells to the trigger gem can't require a higher level than the trigger gem itself. Because of that you'll need to link the skills that are useful only on a higher level(Molten Shell and Decoy totem) to a high level Cast When Damage Taken and the skills that are good even at level one(Enduring cry and curses) to a level 1 Cast When Damage Taken. I put Increased area of effect support gem here to have a bigger aoe of the curse(note that a higher level requirments of the support gems doesn't affect the Cast on damage taken - you can have a level 20 support in a level 1 trigger and it will work)
The spells that you'll need to link to Cast When Damage Taken are:
Enduring Cry - The endurance charges are pretty nice and will boost your defensive abilities
Molten Shell - It boosts your armour and it gives you a temporary shield that will absorb damage. It's increadably effective against damage reflect
Decoy Totem - Very usefull totem that will force you enemies to attack it instead iof you. Since it taunts them constantly it will overwrite the taunt effect of the Endurace Cry. It is very effective and helpful against flicker striking bosses
Temporal Chains/Enfeeble - The perfect curses for this build in my opinion. Slower attacking, casting and moving/less damage dealing enemies are less threatening. Choose one - they are both awesome

Passive_Skill_Tree



Now let me explain what's going on in this tree. Since you will be hitting things with your fists you need to stay alive. For that to happen you need to focus on 2 things - Energy Shield and Shield Block. Shield block combined with the Aegis Aurora(it will replenish 4% of your armour as energy shield anytime you block) Ofcourse you'll need to spend enough skill points in order to cap your resistances
Aside from that you will need many Keystones.
Vaal Pact + Ghost Reaver *- that combo is a must have. With your high life leech ( due to Blood Rage) you'll leech good enough amount of energy shield instantly. This is very helpful especialy vs reflect.
Chaos Innoculation *- 100% chaos resistance means no chaos damage taken not only from monsters but from the Blood Rage buff aswell. Being on Maximum life (1/1) makes it possible to use Melee Damage on full life.
Unwavering Stance - Without it you'll get stunned alot... so you really can't be succesful without it. The way around is using the Eye of Chayula but having no X-X physical damage on your amulet is simply unacceptable!
Resolute Technique - Unnarmed Attacks can't crit so this is a nobrainer
Other notable passives
Minds Drinker - You need it in order to sustain your non-stop infernal blow casting


If you have problems with your Dexterity you should spend some points into +30 Dexterity nodes. There are 3 +30 Dexterity nodes along the way.

*Note that you need to take Vaal Pact, Ghost Reaver and Chaos Inoculation (and the ES nodes behind it) all at the same time! I did that at level 62.

Skill Tree at 118 Skill Points*


Keep in mind that the trees is pretty much with no resist only nodes because everyone has different gear! I only need a 6% extra all resistances node to keep my resists cover. You might need more if you do then get them!

Also if you have troubles with your mana you should get the mind drinker earlier.

If you use high ES shield instead of the Aegis Aurora you should take the 3 +30% Energy SHield from SHields nodes in the Bulwark cluster.


gear

Chest - you need an Armour/Energy Shield Chest. The coloring( RRRRRG ) might be difficult. You can settle with ( RRRRGB ) and switch Melee Physical Damage with Concentrated Effect. I don't reccomend it because the damage would be pretty much the same(note that it won't show in the DPS tooltip but AoE support gems affect attacks linked to Melee Splash) but you'll have less AoE. Anyway It will work.

Helmet -

This is the helmet for you. It will double your damage. The Attributes are very helpful and the fact that it's an armour based item is a good thing (Aegis Aurora works better if you have alot of armour) The extra physical damage taken is a bad thing... but it's not that bad. You'll block 3 out of 4 physical damage attacks and even Kole won't oneshot you.

If you play Hardcore you might want to use a nice Armour/Energy shield or pure Energy Shield Instead. You'l deal alot less but it would be safer thiss way.

Gloves -

Well what can i say.... it's a Facebreaker build - you need Facebreakers. Note that it also works with the new nerfed Facebreakers. Ofcourse the damage isn't as high as with the Legacy ones but it is still enough

Shield -

This is the shield for you! 34% block chance! Armour + Energy shield! Extra Resists! Maximum Cold Resist! And that crazy on block effect! It's a must! After the 1.1.0 the energy shield per block got nerfed so now having a high block/high ES shield would also be a very good idea! It would be even better if the shield is good!

Having this shield on swap:

is usefull vs hard spellcasting bosses

Belt -

I'm using the Meginord's Girdle for Extra Damage( the extra strengh is also helpful ). But you can use a Chain belt with extra energy shield + armour + resistances for more tankiness

Rings - The most important thing is the X-X physical damage! Followed by extra energy shield and resistances. Extra attributes would be nice also.

Amulet - The most important thing is the X-X physical damage! Followed by extra energy shield and resistances. Extra attributes would be nice also.

Boots -

High Energy Shield, High mana, Resistances and spell block chance! Really the best boots for this build. I'm using the new nerfed ones(ofcourse the Legacy version is better but not needed)

Flasks - I use 1 Granite Flask; 3 Quicksilver Flasks and 1 mana flask. The Granite Flask really helps vs hard hitting physical damage bosses. You can even have 2 if you want(for me 1 is enough). The mana flask is helpful in 50% less life,mana,energy shield regeneration maps. Ofcourse the quicksilver flasks can save your life or help you reach things faster. You need atleast 1 dispell chilled and frozen flask and atleast 1 dispell bleedding. Dispell shock and burning* is also helpful

*The only burning damage that can actualy hurt you is the one from "ground" sources.. you know the trail left by cinder elementals and the terrible fire ground spell of the Crematorium boss. Unfortunately the dispell burning flask will only remove the effect for a fragment of the second. As long as you stay in the burning ground you'll take damage

All items that i was using from level 1 to level 70(end-game gear at this level)
These are all items that i've been using. Ordered from low to high level:
Spoiler
Started at level one with these items:

From level 1 to level 16(when i've put on the Facebreakers) i've been using Cleave


Added Crest of Perandus. A must have low level shield! Start using Hatred


Start using Infernal Blow


At level 19 i've added Melee Splash and Multistrike to the Inferal Blow


At level 31 I've added Cast upon damage taken linked with Enduring Cry; Molten Shell and Temporal Chains


At level 62 I've switched to Chaos Innoculatin ( and i was using my 6 Linked Astral Plate at this point ) Start using Discipline. I had around 2000 ES and it was enough to reach and start farming the Docks Merciless


at level 70 the item progression is completed

The_Bandits

Normal
Personay i like to help Kraityn on normal because the 8% all resists are always helpfull and in almost all cases will save you one passive skill point( wich will give you 6% all resists so you get 2% bonus resists). Helping Oak is useless ofcourse since you are using CI .The bonus mana from Aliara is also useless.
Cruel
The attack speed bonus that Kraityn will give if you help him is completely unnoticeable in the endgame so my advice would be not to help him. +X% physical damage doesn't make that much of a difference so i'm not really sure if helping Oak would be the best decision but if you chose to do so don't worry it's still a helpful choice more or less. Aliara here is useless for you... once again. Killing all bandits is the best choice in my opinion.
Merciless
Killing all bandts would be the right decision. Helping Kraityn for an extra frenzy charge is not worth it in my opinion, the same goes for Oak and since you can't crit Aliara is useless (once again)

I've first tried to kill the boss with Aegis Aurora. It all went very smooth but when i've actualy killed the boss the burning damage from the "on ground" fire skill of Megaera killed me. In this video i've use Rathpith Globe shield but the results were worse(because you can't block the mentioned spell) but this time i knew what to do. So basicly you need to attack aslong as you don't have that burning ground beneath you. When she casts it just reposition.

Q_and_A

Q.1 Why Temporal chains?
A.1 Well because the slowing effect is very nice and helps alot. Vulnerability and Flammability will boost your Damage output but i really prefer more defensa than offense. Enfeeble would be a nice choice aswell. It really is a matter of personal preferences.

Q.2 Whats with all the block chance? Is it really that important?
A.2 Oh yes, yes it is. The synergy with Aegis Aurora is insane. And with the extra physical damage taken from Abyssus you need a way to cut down the amounts of physical damage that you'll take

Q.3 Why don't you play in hardcore like all the cool kids?
A.3 My PC is slow and my Internet is unpredictable. The last thing i want is to spend time and effort into something and then lose it all due to uncontrollable circumstances. Aside from that i should tell you that this build is completely viable in hardcore. The only deaths that i have are due to FPS randomly dropping to 0, unbearable lag or my desire to progress alot faster then i actualy can ( example: Kill Piety on Cruel at level 40 with alot of deaths just because i want those 2 skill points and i want to get to Ledge Merciless as fast as i can)

Q.4 Is it hardcore vialbe?
A.4 Absolutely! Just don't do what i did... i've killed Dominus in Cruelty at level 44 (he is in a level 53 zone). After that i've died only 1(or twice?) because i was in the bathroom and i've forgot to go back in town -_-

Q.5 What map mods should i avoid?
A.5 "Blood magic"!

Q.6 Do i need the Legacy Facebreakers(800%-1000% more unnarmed physical damage) for this build to work?
A.6 No. The build works just fine with the new 600%-800% facebreakers. In fact this build does not need any of the legacy uberuniques( like Soul Taker or Kaom's Heart ) unlike many of the popular(and not so popular) builds!

Q.7 What's that insanity?! NO life nodes before you go CI?!
A.7 That's right! Later Today i'll post the gear that i was using to level up. The key si the Crest of Peradus shield(40% block chance) combined with even more block chance in order to hit the 75% cap! With that + medicore resistances in Merciless and around 1000 Life you'll reach and farm Merciless Ledge with no problems at all! Once you are there you'll level up enough to put on the aegis aurora, and you can take Chaos Innoculation.

Q.8 What are the potential threats to this build?
A.8Ok here they are
1. Problem - Blood Magic map mod
1. Solution - You must reroll the map mods.. no other way

2. Problem - Being frozen
2. Solution - Always have atleast 2 Flasks with "Dispel Frozen and Chilled"

3. Problem - Bleeding
3. Solution - Always have 1 Flask with "Removes Bleeding"

4. Problem - Burning
4. Solution - Well actualy i have no problems with burning damage... only the trail left from Cinder Elementals is noticable but it ends as soon as you step out of it. But just in case yo should have a Flask with "Dispel Burning"

5. Problem - Etheral Knives casting Bosses ( like the Labyrint Boss) Unblockable physical damage
5. Solution - Try to doge them until you get to the boss. Once you start hitting the boss the life leech will take care of everything

6. Problem - Bear traps. Unblockable physical damage
6. Solution - Avoid them.... it's not that hard

7. Problem - Elemental damage reflect map + Physical reflect/Elemental Weakness/-X% max elemental resistance
7. Solution - Just swapthe "Melee Physical Damage" support gem with "Life Leech" support gem

Q.9 How to deal lots of damage in the early levels? And how to deal damage at all? I have no weapon dammit!
A.9 I've got that quesiton dozens of times... really that's the most frequently asked question! If anyone ask me that qestion again i'll just quote this Q&A. Ok so basicly the Facebreaker Gloves increase your unnarmed physical damage by alot. But by default you don't have lot's of physical damage! You can't use weapon! So how can you deal damage!? Besides the support gems linked to your Infernal strike(that's obvious) you need to have items with flat X-X physical damage. Have these 2 rings for example
. Togheter they deal 12-30 physical damage or 21 DPS(slightly more because unnarmed attacks have 1.2 attacks per second) Ok so 21 DPS - nothing spectacular right? WRONG! This 21 DPS will be multiplied by your unnarmed bonus damage from the Facebreaker glove, then it will be multiplied by +X% physcial damage your strengh, then it will be multiplied by your attack speed, then it will be multiplied by your Infernal Blow( it deals 125% of your base damage..not to mention the bonus physical damage from higher levels of the skill), then it will be multiplied by the support gems connected to your Infernal Blow. In the I'll give you this example: with these 2 rings i have 43463 DPS and without them i have 35045 DPS. So this insignificat looking 12-30 physical damage gives me 8418 DPS!!!

Q.10 Do you think that the build would be viable without the aegis aurora? That item costs way too much for me, and if so what would be another good shield for this build?
A.10 If you can't afford Aegis Aurora use just Rathpith Globe or a good ES shield (350+). The build will still work fine.

I have a build which is similar to you. At the begining,i also use IB for main DPS but afterthat i use cyclone instead and focus on physical dmg to leech life/mana. The problem is sometimes cyclone with multistrike desync, it can make me died. But i think cyclone is better than IB. IB doesnt immune to stun, u should take Unwavering Stance, also hatred and leech life from physical dmg is not effected so much. Mob with fire ressist can take your time. My cyclone with master of the arena and blast radius can clear mob very fast like IB. And i think with 3,5-6k armour, it's not enough to tank in high level map, we should focus on block and es as well as we can. My character has only 700 arm, dont have aegis aurora but i has 6k es and 74% phy/ 26% spell block. My DPS is 7,5k and 11,5k with hatred, can help me leech life and destroy any boss very well.
Finally, although we have different skill, little different build, i think our build is more funny than any witch build at the moment. Sry for my bad english, but thank you very much, u have made our witch stronger !

I like it, will probably do some hp before I switch to CI since I am on Nemesis but I'll give it a shot.
Thanks for the kind words hoangvoducduy
In the end using Cyclone or Infernal Blow is a matter of personal preferences.

@helgi Yes if you play in a Hardcore League taking some life nodes early on can be helpful... it's always good to have more life... you know... just in case

Btw i've gave up the other build that i was planning to try (i've mentioned this somewhere in the thread) So i'll focus on this one.
