[3.5] Mr. T H I C C tonic (Crit Tectonic Slam) Juggernaut Build + VIDEO GUIDE! 3+ Million DPS!

Tectonic Slam was released just when i finished my updated Earthquake build in May 2018 https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2149501.
When it was released it was not impressive at all and since that day i've been just watching things and hoping for the best.
They day has come in 3.5 and obviously it was THE TIME to bring yet another skill to life!

======================================================================================
How does it work, in general?
You basically Leap across everything with 10 Endurance Charges and SLAM your way forward to the end game.
50-60k armour prevents 5-6k physical damage from hits and you regenerate 1.5% of it as well on top of normal regen which is quite high.
1 endurance charge gives you 4% all resistance. Nebulochs give you 4% Chaos Rsistance per endurance charge per ONE nebuloch.

Tectonic Slam is a Fire melee AOE Attack skill that has a 35% chance to consume Endurance Charge in order to deal 60% more damage with a Charged SLAM.

Why crit? Because DAMAGE, guys. Who cares if you are thicc but hit like a wet noodle and fight shaper for 20 minutes. Going crit solves the problem!
It's not as easy as going Elemental Overload of Resolute Technique, but the DPS greatly outweights everything. Oh.. and we are still THICC and not W E A K K.

PS: Keep in mind that this EXACT setup is not entirely newbie friendly and costs some money.
You also need to understand how mitigatiion works here and why you need to keep endurance charges as high as possible
======================================================================================
1) PROS
Spoiler


+safe across most content.
+6000 HP with 1k Leech and 1k (18%) Life Regen
+stupidly tanky against phys damage with 60000 Armour (Mathil's build has 23k)
+fantastic AOE
+insane Uber Lab farmer, AFK Izaro fights
+great bosskiller too, because *wink* CRIT and over 2+ Million Shaper DPS.
+you don't need xoph's blood

======================================================================================
2) CONS
Spoiler


-Weak to Elemental damage outside of Endurance Charges
-Hard to Balance Resists
-Getting to 10 Endurance Charges is expensive (2x Kaom's Way, +1 Kaom's Roots)

3) Skill Tree Progression / Path of Building / Ascendancy / Bandits
For the levelling tree please watch the video guide or check PoB!

Spoiler


Path of building:
Up to 97.lvl: https://pastebin.com/Rb8EmNnS
For Ascendancy: Unfliching, Unyilding (SC) / Unrelenting (HC), Undeniable, Unbreakable
Bandits: Alira or Kill All

======================================================================================
4) Early Levelling Gear / Skills
Spoiler


You will have to level with Sunder/Arc/Cleave/Whatever till level 28 when you get Tectonic Slam.
Tectonic Slam 4L: Tectonic Slam-Melee.Phys-Faster.Attacks-Onslaught
Tectonic Slam 4L (later): Tectonic Slam-Melee.Phys-Multistrike-Ruthless/Conc.Effect
These 3 are actually strong Unique Maces on your way to Nebuloch:
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Callinellus_Malleus
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Cameria%27s_Maul
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Cameria%27s_Avarice
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Brutus%27_Lead_Sprinkler
For chests you can use reworked https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Daresso%27s_Defiance
or https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Ashrend which will help mitigating Fire self-damage of Nebuloch. Tabula is good as always.
Swords for levelling:
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/The_Princess is great all around.
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/The_Tempestuous_Steel
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Innsbury_Edge
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Prismatic_Eclipse
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Scaeva
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Dreadbeak
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Razor_of_the_Seventh_Sun is not bad now after the buff!

https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Ewar%27s_Mirage is POGCHAMP for cheap

======================================================================================
5) My Actual Gear / End-Game Skills
Spoiler


For Uber Lab enchant: 40% increased Tectonic Slam damage.



Tectonic Slam 5L: Tectonic Slam-Melee.Phys-Melee.Phys-Multistrike-Ruthless-Conc.Effect
Tectonic Slam 6L: Tectonic Slam-Melee.Phys-Melee.Phys-Multistrike-Ruthless-Conc.Effect-Elemental Damage with Attacks
Concescrated Path 6L (lazy farming): Consecrated Path-Melee.Phys-Melee.Phys-Endurance.On.Melee.Stun-Ruthless-Conc.Effect-Elemental Damage with Attacks

======================================================================================
6) Flasks
Spoiler



These make you safe.
If you Fire res is low = use Taste of Hate instead of Wise Oak
Cinderswallow Urn is not a bad option, since we actually Ignite and get the buff!


======================================================================================
7) Pantheon Gods
Spoiler


Major: Arakaali
Minor: Tukohama

======================================================================================
8) Hardcore Viable or not?
Spoiler


Indeed very viable. Just don't Leap Slam into death!
Elemental Damage would be rippy.
Always make sure you are in full Endurance Charges

======================================================================================
9) FOR THE RICH GUYS
Spoiler

Corrupted Nebulochs with % Phys Damage, Attack Speed
2x, 3x Crit Multi + Life jewels.

For Watcher's Eye:

You can drop Herald of Purity for Purity of Ice and Wise Oak for Taste of Hate.
Try not to die.
You can always use Purity of Elements as well.

If you are res capped outside of endurance charges then definitely drop some resists for Life!

Hi!!

With 30% critical is enough? :O
Can you tell me the major differences and pros/cons of this compared to Mathil's build with Oni-Goroshi instead of Nebulochs?

Also, could you show an uber elder kill with this build?

What are your thoughts of using Xoph Blood?
