[3.12] RECKONING (Counterattack) Gladiator Build. Let them kill themselves! UBER ~2 min! BOSSES AFK

I just swapped to this build from a non-crit build. I can clear Shaper Guardians without dying if I'm careful, but I don't feel comfortable, especially compared to my trickster: random big hits take me down to <50% hp or outright kill me.

Things that are on my todo list:

  • maxing out gem levels
  • getting a Watcher's Eye with Pride and/or Precision
  • swapping to a -15 mana cost / attack crit Astral Plate
  • getting some crit multiplier / increased max life jewels
  • taunt on hit jewels (though I'm curious: is this mostly a QoL factor to improve reckoning procs, or does it help survivability as well?)


Any other things I could adjust in passives/gear to improve? I did look at swapping out the Circle of Guilt rings, but that looks to be a fairly big loss overall.
@zetafunction I have a taunt Jewel in my belt with 8% taunt and I have been using Rallying Cry to taunt. I removed Rallying Cry for Ice Golem yesterday because the golem provides more added damage - as far as I see it. So far I'm thinking about adding additional cooldown recovery instead of taunt or getting the block chance up. Regarding QoL, it's real fun when the Reckoning hits ;O)
But most of the time I think cyclon is killing the stuff.

I have been thinking about switching from Circle of Guilt back to Mark of the Elder and Shaper Steel Ring. The main problem here is that I lose a lot of attributes which reduces the level of gems I can use.

The biggest effect for my build would be to get the ability to apply an additional cures and Assasins Mark on hit. That's what gives Angry > 3Mio DPS instead of ~1.5Mio DPS. But that's hard and expansive to come by.

Another - smaller step - is having "attacks have #% critical strike chance".
hey Angry_Roleplayer ,is my first time trying a build from you
is this viable for delirium ? :D

I did some experimenting, and I found that Reckoning by itself just doesn't seem to be enough DPS. Maybe I'm doing something wrong: my base block chance with no buffs is only 75%.

In the end, I got the best results from boosting Cyclone damage without really sacrificing reckoning damage: to do this, I'm using Infused Channeling Support with Cyclone instead of Rage. Since I have Unnatural Instinct, I'm using that to cap resists and using the points to path into cluster jewels instead.

Current cluster jewels are:
  • Large Cluster Jewel (claw/dagger) with Deep Cuts, Martial Prowess, and Feed the Fury (Martial Prowess is not allocated)
  • Medium Cluster Jewel (critical chance) with Precise Commander and Pressure Points (Pressure Points is not allocated)
  • Small Cluster Jewel (max life) with Fettle
  • Small Cluster Jewel (chaos resist) with Blessed

Chaos resist is lower than I'd like at 18% when I have a unique belt on, but it seems to mostly work out in terms of tankiness (~4.9k life after reservations) and damage.

you could spend updated pastebin because I had to place passives because I had to spare them in case I have to change something
I just killed Awakened 8 Sirus deathless with this build clean and quick. Thanks a lot for introducing this tanky build which suits my play style very well. It is a very solid build for all contents.

I made some changes to this build by using some cluster jewels. Also, I used Aul's Uprising to get free Pride and managed to get Flesh and Stone as an extra aura. Dps improved a bit as a result, but this is unnecessary.

This is a PoB link of my build and hope it can stimulate your thoughts on how minor adjustments can be made to improve the build further.
