[3.1] JUGGERNAUT/BERSERKER 1H+Shield Max Block&Spell Block Tank, Atziri Killer+a BoR version

Answer to the first question: no, it is not possible. There are nice Armour nodes over at the Marauder, but even if you took the 2 that are closest to you, that wouldn't net you even close to 2k armour. The problem with your version of the build is that you use a BoR, which is perfectly fine, of course, but then you have to be ready to have less armour overall simply because the biggest flat armour you can get comes from your chest piece. What you might also consider if you want to stay tanky is droping hatred and running determination, and keeping your Lioneye's. That would net you a decent amount of extra armour.

As for the second question, in my opinion, it doesn't make a noticeable difference. I use the 2% one since I'm on Ambush, and it's perfectly fine. Imo, the 10ex is not worth it, but it's your choice, of course :)

Yeah, I'm using bor because I managed to get this legacy version for 4ex lmao ;) okay I gotta stick to iron reflexes since I have ER on the helmet and gloves. Also will farm for 4% AA and keep flasks up. Thanks for your feedback.

EDIT:

I've picked up Iron Reflexes and I managed to stay with the same armour as with Lioneye's Remorse - 7,7k which is not that bad :) Sacreficed overall 1300 dps after regreting some passives, but I'm on the way to getting 9-15 physical ring with hp and int, and 260 hp, but gained ES and op replenish.

Current stats:
13200 dps
5500 HP (5200 after clarity reservation)
578 ES
708 Mana (290 after tempest shield and hatred reservation)
7700 Armour
78/83/78/-60 resistances
74/64 blocks
302 hp reg (without end charges)
32.2 mana reg (with clarity)

Would this build work with AoF + doryani's catalyst? Possibly rn blood magic too since hatred doesn't add any more dps

Hm, sounds interesting in theory, not sure how it would work out in practice, though. If you're playing solo, you wouldn't gain anything from AoF since you run determination + tempest most of the time. It could MAYBE be worth it only if you're constantly on all 3 dps auras (i.e. anger+hatred+wrath), which means playing in a party. Although, imo, you'd have less dps than without AoF and all 3 auras.

But hey, if you have the regret orbs and the time, try it out and let us others know how it went :)

The only reason for running AoF is just because doryani's catalyst has 90-110% bonus ele damage, so i think it would be a dps increase, the only thing i'm worried about is reflect, cuz i just made it 10x worse
You could probably run with Doryani's and no AoF and get even more DPS.

hi i used your revised version and the old one as guide, got some more dps nodes and living some of the hp nodes for the end, and since im poor i dont plan on soult taker nor aegis :/

Is there a particular reason you link cwdt + enduring cry + immortal call in same cwdt as opposed to run a second set of cwdt for immortal call with higher gem lvl?

I dont know why im doubting of spending 2point to get elemental adaptation

I got amplify and seems usefull, im thinking of trying Elementalist node and the fire nodes near it since all those affect not only weapon elemental dmg but the IB explosion too. what do you think?
One combo of cwdt+EC+IC is the simplest, most efficient way of running it. However, it is definitely not the only viable one and if you want to do another setup, there's nothing wrong with that. What I've been doing for Atziri is I started running EC+IC+increased duration manually, so that I can level all the gems and get max endurance charges/immortal call duration, which can basically make you constantly immune to physical damage, if you pay attention to your buff icons and know when to cast the combo again.

2% max resists is a HUGE thing not just for tanks, but for all builds! You shouldn't skip it, especially since you're already there! Just search the forum a bit for the exact numbers, you'll see it makes you take significantly less elemental damage from big hits (which is the only thing you have to worry about anyway.)

Elementalist is a nice node, if you want to try it, there's nothing wrong with that for this build :) plan well which other nodes to sacrifice for it, though, and if it's worth it.
