[3.3] Perma Vaal EQ Porcupine Build - Fast Mapper

English is not my first language sorry about the grammar


Video
https://youtu.be/BxnubRaYRAU

Overview
Spoiler
This build aims to constantly use Vaal Earthquake (VEQ) and high movement speed to clear map fast while handle single target with Vaal Double Strike
The direction to use Uul-Netol's Embrace and scale with pure physical is matter of preferences
As of patch 3.3 player can easily outclass this build dps by going dual wield weapons with shaper stat stick and doing elemental conversion
But if you are tired of using shaper stat stick and doing elemental conversion on every build and want to try fun difference build this build is for you
