[3.4] Consecrated Path / VAAL Ancestral Warchief - Tank Jugg - Self Immortal Call - 2.25 Million DPS
Previous BOTW and self-freeze creator. Time for self-immortal call!
Cool Build Defining Features:
*CWDT + Blood Rage + IC and Consecrated Path/Soul of Arakaali adds 9% life regeneration per second
*Gluttony generates endurance charges and activates Immortal Call through self hits via Leap Slam/Consecrated Path/Unflinching. The secondary damage from gluttony cannot be reduced by armor or dodged so effectively it triggers Immortal Call often.
*Enlighten level 3 allows us just enough mana to use non-vaal ancestral warchief totem for DPS boost.
*Intuitive Leap used effectively to save 5-7 passive points (5 points after loreweave is obtained)
*Downside of hiltless is actually an upside as it also helps activate immortal call quicker. Crit chance, high flat damage, blood magic, weapon range all benefit the build greatly. Does more damage than a starforge!
*Up to 7 endurance charges
-incredibly strong dps
-tanky defense (fortify, acro/phase acro, jugg, loreweave, 5500 life)
-cheaper cost because its not mainstream
-vaal ancestral warchief is very strong bosser
-Takes high level of gameplay skill to maintain leap slam fortify, consecrated path targeted ground pound location, ancestal warchief placement/timing, self inflicting immortal call before starting off certain fights.
-Not the greatest single target DPS
-Difficult for beginners to know when to hit the tipping point of switching from Terminus Est/Res belt to Hiltless/Gluttony (i.e. when the build takes final form and you don't kill yourself)
Hinekoras Sight is also an excellent amulet for this build.

updated guide, added all guardian/shaper videos. enjoy!
Looks really interesting. In what order did you take the ascendancies and when did you switch to hiltless/gluttony?
skill tree pls
I just hit mapping on this build and the damage output/tankiness is already impressive. It's a unique idea, and definitely the most interesting Consecrated Path build I've seen on the forums. Nice job.
I am wondering, however, what you would suggest as an alternative to Loreweave? I'm having little luck buying/finding the unique rings, and I'm not really wanting to drop the money on a Loreweave straight up. Cheers.
