[2.4] Axe Earthquake Berserker + Videos! 8k Life, 7 End.Charges, 360k peak EQ, 340k peak AW.

Notes for 2.4 aka. Atlas Of Worlds:

Spoiler
What does affect us:

"Earthquake's aftershock damage has been reduced from 60% more (at level 1, tapered upwards) to 50% more at all Levels. Its mana cost has been increased from 6 to 10. Its aftershock area of effect has been reduced by 12%. With the wide-ranging melee buffs and adjustment to Earthquake, we expect to see a much more balanced use of melee skills."

What does this mean for us?:

This means we lose 29% aftershock dmg. which is huge loss, sadly.
The increase to mana cost shouldn't be an issue.
We allways leech mana thx to Pain Reaver anyways!
Reduced aftershock AoE by 12% is sad but not that big of a deal.
We might pick up the other 5% AoE in the templar area to compensate for the loss.

What does affect us:

"The damage bonus of the Less Duration support gem has been reduced. At level 1, it has been reduced from 20% to 10%. At level 20, it has been reduced from 29% to 19%."

What this means:

Here we lose 10% more dmg.
Im really glad they didn't touch the less duration mod!
Its sad to see but we are still fine!

TL;DR:

Slightly higher Mana cost, 12% reduced AoE, 29% less aftershock dmg., 10% less dmg.


Will this build be dead?:

Nope! :)
Build still works really well!

My first ever Core attempt! MALACHAI DOWN!

Shavronne, Maligaro and Doedre went smoother than expected.
Messed up BIG TIME in the 2nd phase of the Malachai fight cuz I got way too excited and made fatal mistakes + came kinda unprepared when taking a look at my flasks afterwards. D:
Still didnt expect I would kill him on my first run...
Enjoy the painfull ending... :')

My gear:

Other weapon and body armor option:

More budget friendly axes:
Spoiler

Your cheapest option also usable fairly early.
Culling strike is nice to have + a high rolled one can deal serious damage!
20 life gained on kill also is a nice to have mod!


Another really cheap and imo the best option until you saved up money for a disfavour.
This one does have the pro that you dont have to worry about mana at all and could even squeeze in another 25% aura/buff if ur willing to do some changes on ur own in ur gem setup!
The 1% of phys. dmg. leeched as life also helps!


Other/cheaper body armor options:
Spoiler

Arguably the best chest you could use if you fear high phys. dmg.
Caping lightning res. with this WILL BE HARD! So keep that in mind!


Kaoms Heart. A very commonly used chest thx to its very high flat life.
You can use it if you don't mind losing the warchief and want a large HP pool over dmg.
Keep in mind you lose ALOT of dmg. that way tho!


The cheapest option, I recommand using Belly over it tho!
Onslaught is nice but not needed.


Use only if you dont mind losing HP and love AoE!
It is also fairly expensive...


Other uniques that would be usefull to this build and why:

Spoiler

This ring is GODLIKE! It gives us bleed AND poison shouldn't we have a disfavour yet!
It also allows us to drop Disfavour should we ever get a better axe! Caping res. might be a bit tricky with it tho, so keep that in mind!
>>>ONLY THE LEGACY VERSION IS WORTH IT IMO, NEW ONE ISNT! PROCS ARE TOO UNRELYABLE!<<<


These gloves are nuts should you decide to run Juggernaut over Berserker!
Attack Speed?! Move Speed?! High armor?! Immune to shocks?! Dmg. per end.charge?! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES PLEASEEE!!! No flat life tho.. :(((
Inc. stun duration on you is a huge downside tho but since Jugger is immune to stun anyways... we don't care! :)
As with the ring, caping res. using these might be tricky!

Might consider using this weapon for a budget build you wont lose much dps since its got blood magic for attacks built into it which also works with leap slam, and then you can run ash,hatred and arctic armor and still have close to the same dps as with a disfavor.

For elemental reflect maps just switch to determination and haste giving you pure physical damage only so the reflect does nothing.
sorry net lagged and double posted.

Thanks for the reply!
About Hezmana's Bloodlust Vaal Axe, it indeed is a nice budget option if one cant afford a Atziri's Disfavour BUT I have to disagree big time when it comes to the damage difference of these two axes.

A high roll Hezemana does got about 420 pDPS while a high rolled Disfavour does get 600 pDPS+
Thats a HUGE difference and a major dmg. loss.

When running ele.reflect maps one could just turn off Hatred and HoA.
Also remove added fire and wed, its a big dmg lose but if you dont drop em you kill yourself.
Tbh I avoid running reflect and just reroll the map cuz setting all this other auras up takes way too much time :)

As I said its a budget axe for the build, 90% of your average players wont get enough currancy to buy a disfavor so hence if you want this build to be taken seriously and not just another build most cant copy you gotta give players reasonable options. Dps is nice but I can clear tier 15 maps with 50k dps too and not even that much slower. I use Sunder instead of eq and destroy everything without taking much damage because I have the full option of my mana use for changing out aura's either for more defense or puritys for high elemental bosses etc. Thats why you have alternate weapons you can use to level other gems for future use. I started leveling all the extra auras I planned to test or thought I might need as I was either offered them found them or knew what level they could be gotten via wiki.

Anyone can make a super build using items few can afford mirrored items god like gear etc but to most players there needs to be an option they can afford til they can get the Disfavor.
Hey, fun looking build!

Any video's of game play?

Any Atziri attempts?

As said, Hezemana's is a viable alternative indeed. Nothing wrong with it! :)
I dont see tho why the build should be taken less serious just because I do have godly gear.
It sure works with alot less GG gear.
But I get ur point! :)

Atziri and bosses before her die really fast and I also took down 2x abyss kaom but didnt record it, should I drop another abyss map I can record it tho! :)
