[3.2][HC] Sweep viable. 9k HP Exedy's Crit Sweep Champion (Hegemony's Era)

Here's Hegemony's Era Crit Sweep Build designed for Hardcore



I'm currently playing this build on Hardcore Bestiary and it feels good. I'm lvl 96 right now. New Champion ascendancy made this build much stronger.

Path of building: https://pastebin.com/6tN1qwTL

_________________________________________________________________________________

Pros:
+ Build designed for hardcore
+ No lags
+ Very fat (9k HP, Permanent fortify, utilities from taunt)
+ Great AOE for map clearing

Cons:
- Not cheap, but much cheaper then before. We don't need to invest in accuracy and Atziri's Acuity anymore
- Leap Slam
- Not best boss killer, but no any problems with map bosses.


Why Champion?
The main reason is taunt. Taunted enemies cannot evade our attack, so we always have 100% accuracy rating. That is very good for this build, cause we don't need to invest in accuracy.

Advices

Swapping for conc. effect on bosses.
Conc. effect is a great dps boost for single target. But i don't recommend to swap to conc effect when there are more then 1 boss in the room. Examples: Excavation, Vaal Temple, Precint... You are hitting more target -> you are dealing more damage.

Hi, nice build. What is your crit % for Sweep, without charges, for both unique & rare staff? Also, can this build handle T16, Shaper and Hall of Grandmasters? Thanks.

Hi, thanks!

Crit chance without charges:
Hegemony's era - 74.34%
Rare staff - ~78%

With charges:
Hegemony - cap 95%
Rare staff ~93%

What about maps...
I tried guards on SC on this build even WITHOUT Atziri's acuity - i killed all except minotaur without deaths (no dmg mods). Minotaur was hard, he's so fat. I think i will kill every t16 boss with this gear.
What about Shaper... I don't think he's viable on HC on this build. I don't really know. If i wear abyssus i have near 800k dps, maybe this will be enough, but he can oneshot by his default attack, right? I couldn't kill him without acuity and abyssus on SC. Who knows... By the way i never killed Shaper myself.
What about Hall of Grandmasters, also, never tried it. Sorry. :D

Looks pretty cool. What other skills could be used besides sweep?

The best alternatives would be Ground slam and Earthquake. But Ground Slam is laggy and Earthquake dont give life leech with aftershock . Ice crash can be nice but i prefer Sweep. I would not recommend other skills instead of this four. Swap multistrike for less duration on EQ and for WED on Ice Crash

What about Cyclone?

Cyclone with staff is bad idea cause of knockback. Sweep is much better.

Which gem adds more DPS here, Increased Critical damage or Faster Attacks? Also, with the perma-fortify, I assume this build is quite safe with 18% physical reflect?
