[3.1] 440k+ Sunder Gladiator (Budget friendly!)

Hello guys and gals,

welcome to my Sunder Build.

At the moment I am killing T15 maps in which I mostly only die because I react to slow. I could not yet test any Guardians, Shaper or Uber Atziri as I never got any of the maps for them.

Pros:
1. Fast Attacker
2. Easy to play
3. 58% Block - 67% Spellblock

Cons:
1. Can't do physical reflect maps
2. Have to turn off Hatred for elemental reflect maps
3. Can't do no leech maps

How does this build work?

Sunder is a "Melee" Skill with a range, which makes it a lot easier to evade everything that is being thrown at us. We are playing on a dual wield. As Sunder only uses the main hand for attacking, we can use the offhand for a supporting weapon.

So all we do is: 1. Get in range of the enemy, hold right mousebutton and watch stuff die.
If anything is thrown at us, just use whirling blades to evade stuff and keep fortify alive.

What gear is mandatory?
Really mandatory is nothing. You can fully play the build with 2 rares to get some currency BUT the build is so budget friendly that you will be able to buy your endgame items that bring you to t15 for less than you'd even imagine.

But I suggest the following uniques to make life easier:



Jack, the Axe: Currently (while writing this guide) online for as cheap as 1 Orb of Alchemy.
This little axe will not only carry you from level 65 to full endgame, it will also support you with some cheer up talking.

Prismatic Eclipse: This is our Offhand weapon with 3 green sockets to trigger its modifier of "12%
increased attack speed for each green socket" this is the strongest way this weapon can support us with whooping 36% more attackspeed.

Kaom's Roots: Stun immunity, freeze immunity, can't be slowed under standard movement speed an lots of life. Nothing else needed.

Current Gear (Harbinger League):


A few words: I used a crappy 5l (still t15 viable!!) and Jack, the Axe until recently. I found a cheap whooping 1747 Armour corrupted Astral Plate for 80 Chaos and got a nice 381 physical DPS axe for 140 chaos. Those are not needed but make your life easier. You can EASILY farm currency until you upgrade to a rare axe + 6L Astral Plate. As we need only 1 blue socket, even corrupted crafting is CHEAP as hell. 1 Blue socket costs 4 Chromatic + 4 Vaal Orbs

(For Min/Max example you will find 3 prismatic eclipse swords. The first one is the real ingame item I have (PoB does NOT! use the color effect of the weapon). The second is an edited eclipse to show the 3 green socket speed effect (which I encourage to use) and the third one is an edited version showing the damage bonus for 3 red sockets)

If you have ANY questions please post them here, so others with the same questions have their answers listed here too :)

Thanks. nice to hear :)

At first I went to Resolute Technique so I never miss a hit, then I went to the Axe cluster on the left side and the Lifewheel and took what ever I needed most in that situation. After you got those you can max out the duelist area.

Added the Bandits selection: Kill all for 2 points

For the answer, let me quote the description of Sunder:
"
Requires a Mace, Axe, or Staff.

What exactly do you mean ? Until Level 12 when you get sunder?
Or Leveling trees?
