[3.0] VP DP OP - Dark Pact Berserker - New Minotaur Facetank Video

How do you feel your build holds up compared to BM versions? Interested in a dark pact but not sure which one to go for.

Just found this post after I had been doing my own thing for a while. Managed to down shaper with my previous build but it was sketchy, trying out your version and it seems to be better.

I'll update later when i have the frags to run shaper again to see the diff.

Spoiler




Ah man I'm jealous of your gear. Glad you like the build!

I really do suggest a belt of the deceiver, though, even late game. Your belt gives a lot of defenses, but the 30% reduced extra damage taken on crit is pretty hard to beat when the only thing that kills us is one shots. Plus free intimidate.


I'll give it a strong consideration, thank you :)

In your write-up and title you say you're using Dark Pact, but in your PoB link, you don't even have Dark Pact?


I'm pretty sure I do, can you take a screenshot of what you're seeing?
Is Throatseeker worth more than Method to the Madness? Seems like the base increase would be more damage overall from MttM. But, I'm no builder and have no idea how to use PoB, so pure speculation.
I can give you love, rocking horses, and dancing!

Ah, Dark Pact is a skill gem. I believe you meant Vaal Pact, which is not being used in the PoB tree because the PoB build is the final version, which includes Atziri's Acuity. This is a unique item that renders Vaal Pact redundant, and thus allows you to deallocate those points to invest in more life.

If you'd like to view the build before you have Acuity, please look at the links to the other trees in the Tree section.

BM is a solution to a problem that this build doesn't have. It would also stop us from using MoM, which is how we counteract the 10% extra damage taken from berserker, as well as additional damage reduction.

Method to the Madness takes 6 points to get to (if we have acuity) and gives us a DPS increase of 8.4%. Throatseeker takes us 3 points and gives us a DPS increase of 13.0%, assuming you're judicious with your diamond flask.

Ahh, I see. Thanks. I meant Vaal Pact.

No Acuity here, but otherwise that makes perfect sense. Ty for the response!

MttM gets better the closer you have to path to it and the less crit chance you have. If you're level 80 with 50c worth of gear, the only reason you wouldn't take it is if you don't want to spend the respec points later.
