You're welcome! What are the mods on the other shield? The one that isn't The Surrender?


Although no, I'm sorry, this is a shield with a mod:
+ 1% chance to block projectile attack damage

I lost sight of the last mod ...
It turns out that The Surrender does not block the damage of projectile at all? But the usual trash shield due to Ascendancy and the 1% mod takes on the property of a shell block of 75%?

Or am I misunderstanding something?

It's just overthinking :). Blocking blocks HITS (not damage over time). So any attack or spell can be blocked regardless if it's projectile or not. The reason it's showing up in your ToolTip is that, when you have that specific shield equipped, you're getting EXTRA block chance vs. projectiles. When the shield isn't equipped, there aren't any bonuses and exceptions you need to be made aware of; you'd have the same block chance against a projectile or melee hit so there is no reason to differentiate the two of them.

Does that make sense?

The more I play this build, the more I like it. Guy, you are great. I need to see the rest of your builds-)

Yesterday I looked at how all kinds of arrows are blocked and came to a similar conclusion. I'm running with The Surrender.

Now it remains to deal with survivability maximization, but even now, being 73, I calmly endured the 75th level dual bosses.

A little bit of damage from the cyclone, I need to come up with something with jewels and weapons.

Is there a resource that allows you to see what new jewels give? I mean, so that you can rotate into different sockets interactively and look at the result.

The POB did not see them in the jewels list.
Back from vacay and raring to finish atlas and push 90+ before end of league

I picked up the Militant Faith Jewel which seems kinda yummy

Using most of wreckers links and build (as it's just sooooo good) tweaked slightly as I wanted to use facebreakers, there is probably room for improvement on my choices but I am enjoying the playstyle (feel free to critique and advise ofc)

Loooooove Lioneye's Remorse shield, huge armor and life buffs in that shield and it cost me 2chaos :)

anyways time to play for a few hours today, as always a HUUGE thanks to wrecker for the build and the people who comment here, helps a newbie like me to learn this game and dare to mess about and tweak builds :)

Ha ha. Awesome. I'm glad you're liking it.

I don't know of any resource or tool that does what you're hoping for with Jewels. There are as many jewels as there are weapons. Rare jewels roll just as random as gear or weapons. So you have just as many options to scroll through as you'd have weapons in Borderlands. You just have to know what mods work for your build and slowly browse through the shop.

As your gems level, you'll notice a big damage increase with Cyclone. Being in Blood Stance helps lots too.

Thanks for the great post! You're very kind :).

Thanks! Good luck past 90+! And sweet jewel! I'm excited for 3.8. I'm nervous about the changes coming to Raider...it'll determine my 6th and final guide. I'm starting the process of tweaking my guides for next league so I have only a few changes to make (hopefully) when the 3.8 patch notes come out.

Your build looks fantastic. 20/20'ing gems and using a white socket well. Sexy.

I will try those skills out to see how they perform, what are you thinking of replacing Infused Channelling with? I'm farming t16's atm so skills will lvl fast so I could throw those skills on my other weapon and shield till they get to lvl 15 or so then try them out.
Awesome! Thank you! It'd be Bladestorm/Perforate-Bloodlust-Brutality-Fortify-Rage-Melee Physical.


Hey Wrecker

I finally got some play time in yesterday and last night to try out Perforate, Bladestorm. Both skills worked pretty well but if I was to change to one of those I would go with Perforate just cause of personal preference.


I Tried Blade Flurry and Reave and those are good skills. I like Blade Flurry it works good on this build.

I got one my xbox accounts linked now and the other account I don't use anymore so not a big deal. I am trying to get my main gear crafted so what i'm using now could be better but is working pretty good till I get my other gear the way I want it.

As always Happy Gaming!

Thanks for taking the time to not only test out the skills but also give feedback. With the supports of the main skill, this build could even turn into a "pick any 'pure physical' melee attack" that you like. Well, almost any. I appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Good day!

I still play this build, and I'm close to level 90.
I don’t remember when it was the last time, because 80+ was usually the limit, then I got tired and started a new character.

So, I'm running with Scaeva.
I tried several swords in POB with PDPS 400-420.
I see almost no increase in DPS or it is so insignificant that it’s definitely not worth a few exalts.

Am I again missing something or is this a normal situation?

I'm glad you're enjoying the build enough that you're close to 90. Good job.

After loading up your character in PoB and setting up the configuration tab, I'm getting just under 20'000 more DPS by using the Tiger Hook. Scaeva is at 185'000 while adding the default rare Tiger Hook increased the DPS to 203'000. Was that the same margin you had?

Edit: Shaper DPS

You'll notice some changes to the guide's layout. I'm just adding some layout ideas I wanted to include going forward. I'm doing it now to save time later if the build needs to change because of 3.8's future patch notes.
