I constantly have people asking me about my spec on my stream so I figured I would make this thread. If you want to see this spec in action I stream US times in the day to early morning.
Here is a picture of me doing some leveling tonight
The idea of this build overall was to scale up groundslam with alot of increased physical damage and attack speed. When I was leveling up and it felt like I could spare some points I would get some mace damage or just flat melee physical damage nodes.
Right now on my build I am able to go through maps with ease ranging from 66-75 (those are the ones I have solo'd so far). Solo seems to be the best option for this spec, but you can easily group with other people.
Here is a link to my spec currently at 84
Keep in mind that I have tailored it really specific to my gear that I have.
I recently ripped on this build to minus max GMP temple piety (we were pulling the adds around her and I logged out and logged in in standard). So this is where my character is now.
When I leveled this up I rushed for RT than went to the templar nodes first, which lead me to being dex starved. That is one thing you will have to struggle with throughout the game which is trying to make sure you have enough dex to get all the gems you need to 20 (ideally haste and blood rage)
I did groundslamming up to level 10 than I leap slammed to 17 and got a hrimnors, which I used until I was at 27 and bought a geoffris. After that I used that geoffris until I was in merci ledge thats when I finally got a replacement for a new maul.
But overall this may be a groundslam build but if you are leveling and dont have really good movespeed boots all the time then you should be doing leapslam instead. You need to be cautious on what you leap on as well
I just ripped recently so heres my new set of gear so far I actually found a better weapon and my gear isnt half bad I am able to progress really easily.
I use the offhands for leveling gems.
I use a level 4 Cast on damage taken since that is right when the gem starts to scale 80 hp per level. 620 damage is really easy to take so it is still going off frequently. It gives you the benefit of molten shell at rank 9, temp chains at 7, and enduring cry at 7.
