Ascendancy



We pick first the Slayer overleech. After that we pick the Assassin passive, wich gives us ez Power charge generation. Finally we take the Assassin start point and respec our tree a bit.




Bandits
We pick Alira for mana reg, crit multi and All res




Gear

Overview



Detailed & Gem Links

We play around the Facebreaker Gloves as a "weapon", wich means we play UNARMED. Try to get 3R 1G and put in Vaal Grace for huge defense boost or 3R 1B and put in Frost Bomb for a huge offence boost.

Gems: Cast when Damage Taken(lvl5) -> Immortal Call(lvl 7) -> Ancestral Protector -> Vaal Grace (Frost Bomb)


We take the Abyssus because it gives us a HUGE dmg boost with alot of crit multi and phys to attacks

Gems: Shield Charge -> Faster Attacks -> Fortify -> Blood Magic


Our Shield is the Lycosidae for 100% Hit chance.

Gems: Hatred -> Herald of Ash -> Blood Rage


Our Chest is the Loreweave wich you can easy get if you sell a full inventory of Unique rings to a Vendor (60 Unique Rings). We switch out Increased Area with Concentrated Effect for Bosses. Stat Priority: Phys dmg -> Elemental Damage -> Crit Chance -> Max Res -> Life

Gems: Ice Crash -> Melee Physical Damage -> Phys to Lightning -> Elemental Damage with Attacks -> Multistrike -> Increased Area of Effect (Concentrated Effect)


We take the Kaom's Roota as Boots wich give us free Stun and Freeze Immunity and alot of Life



Our Belt is the Darknes Enthroned with at least one "All Res" jewel in it. Put in your best Abyss jewels with Life and Phys dmg to attacks.



Our Rings are 2x The Taming, wich provides us Huge dmg with up to 120% Elemental Dmg per ring and alot of Resistances with up to 40$ per Ring.
You can also go for some insane Steel Rings with 40% all res and T1 Phys wich should result in a similar dmg boost. Together with Elemental dmg on these you would realy raise your dmg into the oblivion, but this would be some Mirror Tier Rings, so... :D
Steel Ring Power

As Jewel take the the Rigwalds Curse Amulet wich provides us our Crit Chance and let us use Claw notes on the Tree



Our Flask are a pure dmg Setup for max dmg Boost against Bosses and tough enemys. You should realy get Bleed Immunity on the Diamond Flask ;). The Wise Oak provides additional to the dmg boost the res you need to cap out Elemental Weakness maps. The Lions Roar could be a bit annoying with the knockback but eeasy countered with the Protector Totem behind the enemy. The Taste of Hate gives us a good dmg and defense boost especially because of our Abyssus Helmet. The Atziris Promise give us additional to its dmg boost some nice Chaos res.



We prefer Abyss jewels with Phys dmg, Life and Attack speed. We can also take some normal Jewels with increased phys dmg %max life and attack speed, but this result in a bit less power overall.

We also take a Watcher's Eye with Crit-Hatred for additional Crit Chance






Skilltree at lvl 92

Path of Building

Skill Tree

While Leveling we take this path in the Tree and undo it after we got the Assassin start point. We also go straight to the Claw wheel and pick these notes asap
Spoiler





The Pantheon

The pantheon is full up to you. i Prefer the "Soul of Arakaali" and "Soul of Tukohama"





Enchantment

There are serval good Enchantments for the Helmet:
40% increased Ice Crash Damage
15% of Ice Crash Physical Damage gained as Extra Cold Damage (this is stronger than the 40% Boost))
Ancestral Protector Totem grants 18% increased Attack Speed while Active
Blood Rage grants additional 12% increased Attack Speed
For our Boots we look for these Enchantments:
16% increased Attack and Cast Speed if you've Killed Recently (for faster Mapping)
Damage Penetrates 10% of Enemy Elemental Resistances if you haven't Killed Recently (for Bosses)
We dont take Enchantments on our Gloves because we want some nice Corruptions:
Curse Enemies with Level (10–12) Elemental Weakness on Hit
Attacks have +(0.5–0.8)% to Critical Strike Chance
+1 to Maximum Frenzy Charges
(4–6)% increased maximum Life
(8–10)% increased Attack Speed

i would prefer a combination of the ele weakness curse and the additional crit chance ;)




Leveling Guide

Try to get the Facebreaker asap, wich you can start to wear from lvl 16 straight to endgame. you should also try to get the Lycosidae asap, wich you can start to wear from lvl 11 straight to endgame too. if you cant afford one play with an Accuracy gem until you get it. With the facebreaker in your hands you should first scale ur dmg with rings and amulets wich provides phys dmg to attacks until you can wear the Rigwalds Curse and the Tamings. Take a Meginord Girdle until you get some nice Abyss Jewels for your Darkness Enthroned Belt.

As gems i would suggest: Shield Charge, Infernal Blow (with Ancestral Call and Melee Splash)

These are my prefered lvl Uniques for Facebreaker:



While Leveling we take this path in the Tree and undo it after we got the Assassin start point. We also go straight to the Claw wheel and pick these notes asap

Cool as hell build man. I also end up with a pretty much similar setup whenever I try to theorycraft crit facebreakers :D. Never thought about using Tamings though. It's interesting that they provide a similar damage boost as GG steel rings, even on a facebreaker build. Not to mention the amazing 40% to all res per ring.

A quick couple of questions:
-Have you thought about using shroud of the lightless instead of loreweave? The all pen seems really nice considering all your damage is elemental. Not sure which link you'd replace though(multistrike?).

-Have you tried any other skills like IB or cyclone? Or is Ice Crash the highest dps possible?

Yeah, that's about it. I've always wanted to make a crit FB char, maybe with this template I'll actually get around to doing it :D
For try, for see, and for know.

This is a buff

Hey man,
yeah im realy in love with the Taming rings, these are incredible strong and viable for nearly all elemental builds :)

Imho loreweave is way stronger, simply because of the flat phys dmg on it addtional to the other realy nice stats. not to mention the stable max res wich provides a huge defense boost.

according to PoB im at 3,8m shaper dps with ice crash. with cyclone and some gem swapping i come to 3,3m and with infernal blow i come to 2,4m

Cool build, I'm thinking of giving it a try.

Couple questions: first, why herald of ash? Does it have to do with causing ignite for the taming ailment buff? Second, I looked at the configuration on the PoB link you provided, and I'm not sure why the box is marked to have a shocked target? We don't do any lightning damage, right? Thanks for the help :D
