[3.7]SPEEDY&Tanky AF PowerSiphon Berserker (2mil shaper DPS)
Edit Date 7/30:Hello it's been a week since i've posted this with no updates, just letting you guys know my full attention has been on making a video guide.
This is a rough rendition of the build guide. I will be making edits frequently feel free to ask any questions.
This is a build built around the berserker blitz mechanic completely mitigating the downside of less crit by using using wands. Inspired by the shield charge change that allows use of wands.
+As fast as most headhunter builds
+can do any content
-~2ex starting cost
-Can die to full juiced t16 legions
-needs clarity watchers eye to function without going oom
-can't do reflect and no leech maps
-High investment to reach shaper killing dps
-Not a recommended first character of the league
-Needs too many buttons on toolbar unless accommodated
Cons may seem to outweigh the pros
,but the speed of the build makes up for it.
Path of Building
3.Crave the slaughter
4.Rite of ruin
Blitz is essential,it gives us 20% MORE attack speed and 200%
reduced crit chance which is mitigated by the fact that we're
Rite of ruin gives us even more damage, but more importantly
it's the only way to attain rage as a ranged character.
-Kill all or Alira(if your having issues with resistance and mana)
Soul of Lunaris
Soul of gruthkul
Piscator's Vigil is a must. If you want to upgrade a Double
Corrupted piscator's with ele pen is your best bet.
As far as the shield goes BIS is having access to
"socket gems are supported by lvl 5 CWDT so your can run
molten shell, inc duration, and immortal call in your shield
Other stats you want are life resists and armour
Devotos Devotion is solid and is what i'm currently using
Light poacher is an option if you have T1 abyss jewels and
give up fortify and faster attacks on shield charge
You can also use a rare helm with defense stats
Barrage helm enchant preferred
Iron Reflexes is very important for the build, this item is
a must have.
You can also opt for an elder astral plate or
a Point Blank skin of the lords but is not recommended.
Rare Gloves, you want resist,life, and damage on your gloves.
You'll have your Power Siphon socketed here so you can get
gem specific rare mods as well.
Bubonics are a great option, flat damage from abyss jewels
power the build because of the effect of the wand.
Stats to look for are flat ele damage and crit multi
If you can get a shaper base elemental damage pen is
the best stat you can get.
Mark of the elder is very hard to beat it gives us flat elemental
damage, life, and up to 80% increased damage. Must be used with a
shaper ring in the other slot.
A shaped diamond or opal ring with assassins mark
A regular rare shaped ring can also be used on a budget
A Rare stygian with life and resist is a great option abyss sockets are very important
HeadHunter is the best option :)
Staunching instant flask is a must
Diamond flask is great because it gives us around 20% effective crit
15% elemental Atziri's flask is great for damage
Jade flask gives us a ton of armour,that makes it a great defensive option.
Dyingsun helps out a lot for clear speed, and gives barrage a ton of damage
Curse and freeze immunity are recommended flask mods

Love the idea. Looking forward to seeing your videos.
I'm somewhat skeptical of your claim that the build is "tanky af" but I'm hoping you'll prove me wrong.

I agree, the build idea seems cool. Will not try out a build though without video of legion fights and T15/16 maps at minimum.
