[2.2] pl4t's Double Strike Ninja. 63k dps, insane clear speed and 73/73 block with average gear!



hello there!
i have been playing this awesome game for 3 years now, and always loved melee and duelists.
this is my first perandus character (so the gear is average) and my first time writing a build guide (so the guide is average as well :D )

as i cant play full time, all of my characters were built on a budget and i think im quite good at building effective budget characters :)


General Idea

this is a duel wield build using main-hand only attack (double strike) with ungil's gauche in the offhand. ungil's gauche gives us awesome block %, nice crit and juicy duel wield bonuses.
we also use bringer of rain for extra block, physical damage, blind and easy 6link.


offense is very strong because of duel wield + crit + TONS of physical damage from gear. 60k> with charges, around 80k with vaal haste + atziri's promise.

curent defence is ~4.5k life, 73/73 block(with painforged), ~4k armor and sometimes 3 endurace charges with average gear. you rarely get hit because of blind, block, freeze and high clear speed.
speeking of clear speed - in my opinion it is awesome. i just whirl around quickly and jump right into battle with flicker strike. most packs dont get a chance to attack me back and explode in 1 sec, while bosses melt in 3 especialy with vaal haste + atziri's promise.


Gear



current gear cost is ~2ex which isnt cheap, but it can be much cheaper. i started maps with a 170pdps sword and -500 life and destroyed everything up to tier 4 maps...


Tree

this is the planned level 90 tree. as im level 83, mine is missing 2 jewel sockets + sleight of hand.

jewels should be life + dual wield block.

chosen ascendancy class is gldiator for the 100% spell block + awesome physical explosions.
bandit:
Oak - Kraityn - Kraityn


Defence and Offense

OFFENSE (with 4 frenzy + 3 power charges):


DEFENCE (without painforged + 8% block):



Skills

bringer of rain 4l: double strike, melee splash, multistrike, increased critical strikes
Your main skill. it's a main hand only skill and it attakcs very fast - excellent for bor's blind and for triggering the gladiator's bleed.

boots 4l: whirling blades, flicker strike, fortify, blood magic
our movement skills. flicker strike realy improves my clear speed - no need to aim or think, just click and start attacking.

sword 3l: riposte, stun, endurance charge on melee stun
passive endurance charge generator.

dagger 3l: blaphemy, assasin's mark, hatred
no need to explain.

gloves 4l: vaal haste, blood rage, increased duration, leap slam
im always running around with blood rage, and using vaal haste to melt bosses. leap slam is for labyrinth and ledges.

Future Plans

get some nice life + duel wield block jewels and cap block at 75/75 + 5k life (maybe at level 90)


overall, very high clear speed and defences. leave comments below :)

Finally, a build for a proper duelist.
I ll give this a go the first chance I get!
Hey! Nice with a dual strike build. You say the clearspeed is high, would you care to quantify? What tier of maps are you doing?
Question: Why no Frenzy charges? You pass by all three charge nodes and get kraityn's in merciless.
@xaec - double strike, not dual strike :) and my map pool is kinda bad atm, highest ive played so far is tier 6. Trash explodes in 1 attack and boss took ~3 sec i think.

@riale i think there are more effective dps nodes than frenzy charge nodes that i didnt take yet as well - jewels, sleight of hand, the sword dmg/attack speed path etc...
And taking them instead of life/block nodes is a big no.


Also, i will hopefully upload gameplay videos this weekend!
Bandits and Subclasses please

oh, sry, didnt see that

Going to go try this build right now, actually. Been looking for a duelist build like this.
any leveling tips?
I leveled with duel wield cleave, as you can get many 1h/duel wield damage nodes on the way to ranger.
The rustic sash recipe realy helped me until level 50, when i specd to crit + block and bought ungil's gauche and crit physical sword.
hello, im now 62lvl and I have a huge problem with mana (with 2 auras)

what jewels you use? mb for mana reg
