Hello! Awesome tank, just had a quick question about the current amount of armor you're sitting at in 1.3 with/without determination, etc. Thoughts on molten shell as well? Although with the kaom's I can imagine it's tough to squeeze in any space for a spell that temporary and such. Love the build, keep on tanking!


Thanks.. I'm at around 9k... Molten shell has its uses, though I currently don't run it perm. Lets see what happens in Awakenings..

No one has answered my question about whether the jewel is self-sustaining after you travel to it, though. Are you an alpha tester? No? I didn't think so.

If you can select intuitive leap and then cut of your path to it with N regret orbs and have it still be selected thanks to its own effect, then it is OP. Otherwise, I agree that it is not (as long as the radius is small enough).


No, it is not self-sustaining after you travel to it (I can't recall which news coverage mentioned this, but one of them explicitly did).

Also, based on the radius that Leap has (at least without some future increase), it doesn't look like it will allow Mortal Conviction to the currently closest jewel socket node -- or that would be quite nice.

On a side note -- They have added a couple of extra "travel" nodes in a couple areas (unfortunately).

Hello gellig!
I saw your build doing a lot of things, and i liked it (like who didn't!).. My question is, back in diablo 2 i had a concentrate barbarian, i dont know if you were a player then, but in general the build was a max block dude with average damage, an offensive tank. with that build, i managed to get lvl 90ish in the hardcore ladder. my idea is making a max(?) block marauder like you did. i'm thinking of using 1h double strike as a main attack, maybe switching to heavy strike for bosses(like i sometimes did in diablo 2 with bash) what is your opinion based on your experience? will double strike fall too short on damage while 4l? assume normal gear, no mirrored stuff etc. what build would you advice me to do? im starting this from scratch... im linking my build idea: http://poeurl.com/zhufbg4 , what is your opinion on this? as i said, its not a lvl100 reset as you mention in the guide, its building from scratch. Last, im levelling with a 2h axe, and think of going 2h for as long as i can, to get the extra dmg> faster levelling, when should i start with a shield? at maps, or earlier?

Congratulations on what you accomplished,cheers!


Hey trimpourdelo,

I liked Reave more than Double Strike given its AOE potential without using MS and better single target damage (with lower Dex needs). DS can work though. The tree you listed is pretty good, obviously you sacrifice from spell block. I think you will know when you need a shield (i.e. when you need the survivability) -- until then, keep going DPS ;)
