Rhox's basic hardcore 2h marauder build

People have been asking me for my build a lot on hardcore so I decided to do this really fast so i could tell people go to the forums to see it.

After getting diamond skin the marauder tree go straight to resolute technique and then to the templar tree. After getting all the life and good damage passives in the temp tree go down between the resistance and resolute technique towards blood magic, instead of getting blood magic early go up towards the middle of the tree and get the bottom and middle hp passive groups in the middle left. After getting those and the 30 str node go into the duelist tree through the armor and get the 8% life passives and regen eventually in the middle of the duelist section, then go around the 2h passives to the golems blood regen/hp group, once you have those hp/regen passives follow the bottom dex nodes to iron reflexes while getting diamond skin for extra resistance. At this point you can get blood magic then work your way to berserking/unwavering stance. After you have all this you can get endurance charges/endurance regen and more regen if you need it


current gear

I use glacial strike for single target dps, instead of heavy strike because knocking mobs around while grouped with people can be annoying for everyone and not getting loot because a monster is a in wall is a waste of time and freeze locking a mob is always nice. I use ground slam for aoe, ranged damage and stun lockling. I also use molten shell linked with faster casting, concentrated effect and iron will for extra aoe damage and armor. I am running grace/anger/wrath for my auras because of blood magic. Enduring cry is required for obvious reasons. I recently replaced decoy totem with rejuvenation totem, this would help a lot early on with blood magic and it tanks about as well as decoy totem does.

Ill try to answer questions on here, be gentle though, this is my first marauder and 2nd real character on poe

Hello, any reason why don't you take Blood Drinker?
I'd like you know your opinion.

Thanks.

How do plan to use grace, anger, and wrath past a certain level due to the int requirements. And do think might be a waste running any auras as pure mara w/o splashing heavy on templar int nodes since can't level them that high? Which brings the question would they be worth the health reservation cost?? Sorry new but I would like to know this.
could you please post your current gear?

I am also curious. Would you specc out of blood magic to run the auras or go with health reservation?

Any reason we need to resort to profanity to express ourselves on here?

It's read by a lot of children, including mine, so please refrain from swearing if you don't mind. Thanks in advance.
