Notes:


Critical Strikes Gem

This has become the most powerful gem in the game for non-traditional crit builds.




This single gem, in this build, has the equivalence of 337% increased crit chance. And adding the +9% from Assassin's Mark almost caps crit chance.


Because of this single gem, a top tier exquisite blade isn't necessary and you can get great performance any crit sword.
So many strikes within one breath.
But only one strike needed, for certain death.

Hello,

About 6link setup, isn't added fire gem or wed gem giving you better dps?

To me, i got more damage from AFD than ICS.

Maybe ICS can give more damage because you use abysuss. (I am using BOR)

Also, do you think about using dirty technic?? Recently, i try and it works great synergy with gratuituos violence, especially for boss.
I really want to see a gameplay video, seems highly explosive

also is this possible in dual wield?

In 2.2, the ICS gem has become the best gem in this build.




As you can see, from one single gem you can almost cap critical chance.


Dirty Techniques is pretty good for what it does and its definitely an option if you can spare the points.

hi, can you show your passive tree?

yes totally left that out. Fixed.

Here it it:

But, how can you survive in a full dps way? without armor or evade except chance to dodge? Hell,even with +40% increase physical damage taken
Waiting for that gameplay video....

So you basically need to kill one mob and the rest will explode.

Did some testing with flicker and had some spectacular results.

Added a second video:
