[3.2] Heavy Strike Slayer a.k.a "THE STUN THAT NO ONE ASKED FOR" [Permastun Chimera & Shaper Stun!]

This is the official forum post for THE STUN THAT NO ONE ASKED FOR!



This is a stun build utilizing Heavy Strike which delivers high single-target DPS that can permastun most of the bosses in the game.
Sunder is used as the clearing setup, which is previously known to be reliable both while leveling and uptil late endgame.

Please keep in mind I am a novice when it comes to making good forum posts and thus might not have listed all necessary information here.
This guide will gradually be updated, partially based on your suggestions.

My gear and gem setups!
Spoiler




Flasks
Spoiler

Observe that my flask setup is based on my own preference and not necessary the best alternative for you!
The key flasks in this setup are the damage flasks "Sin's Rebirth", "Lion's Roar" and "Atziri's Promise". If you cannot afford "Sin's Rebirth", you can also use two pairs of "Lion's Roar" and "Atziri's promise".
You only need one life flask, preferably with instant life and anti-freeze. So the second life flask that I have in my setup can be replaced by any of the above mentioned damage flasks.


Jewels
Spoiler

The two obvious choices for this build are the threshold jewels for Heavy Strike: "Weight of the Empire". When it comes to the other two gems anything that affects the damage of heavy strike (physical damage, damage while dual wielding, damage with maces etc...) along with attack speed are the damage modifiers to look for. It is of course also preferable to get life (at least 5%) but that makes it more expensive.


Skill tree (endgame & leveling)
Spoiler
Lvl 93 (Final Tree)

Lvl 80 Early Endgame

Lvl 60ish [83 skill points]

Lvl 40ish [63 skill points]

Lvl 20ish [43 skill points]
Please note that these skill trees are suggestions based on what I think is desirable when leveling. Depending on the gear that you get while leveling, you might have to take more life earlier!

Ascendancy:
Take Bane of legends first and then move towards Brutal fervour!

Bandits:
Kill all for 2 passive points

The Izaro permastun can be seen at 0:46
Looking at your pob you can save a point like this http://poeurl.com/bQvA if you need the 10 dex its better to take a 30dex passive.
Nice and fun build.

Much better, didn't even need to take dexterity node. Thank you! Will make sure to update the skill tree in my PoB links!
could you detail the three a bit more? like the progression in order to get to final three?

Thank you for your question. I put together some suggestions that you can use while leveling. But I don't think you will have any struggles with this build while leveling (almost) regardless of what you allocate first in the tree since Sunder is very reliable while leveling.
Good luck and have fun! ;)
uh? where the gem setup for Heavy Strike? cant see it anywhere.. bandit kill all for 2pt?
~~There will be no more for mercy~~
