Could it be because the character is still levelling?


Attack speed is very powerful for BS. You probably don't have a lot of it so it's more important. You get diminishing returns the more you get. I suppose it also depends on the rest of your gear.

Where did you get a Lion's Roar with 34% more meele phys damage?

Max roll I found was 25%.


There are legacy items in the game. Check the wiki. The "best gear" PoB showns some of the nice things you can get on standard. The armour with Maim support is also legacy.

I see. Another thing, this time about the pantheon. Wouldn't Soul of Shakari be better than Soul of Gruthkul? I mean, DoTs are the only think that can kill block builds, and this one has -60% chaos resistance to boot. I guess chaos DoTs are not that common and Gruthkul is better for most situations?

Gruthkul is more or less a permanent 5% phys reduction because hits that were blocked also count. Shakari is 5% chaos which is a lot less common and 25% caustic ground which is very specific (not all DoT). It can be useful in certain situations when you expect caustic ground to be more common. But Gruthkul is generally more useful and I don't want to switch pantheons all the time. I just switch to Solaris when doing Sirus.

Also "the build" doesn't have -60. I NEVER say don't take chaos res. I choose not to but you're free to do what works for you.

is it worth using a paradoxica instead of a high Pdps Weapon?
So I use this paradoxica & a Saviour:

instead of:


Also, does a exploding chest work good with BS?
I'm trying to get one with attack crit on it, instead of using a Belly.

Yes a good Paradoxica, phys+crit or something like that is a cheap choice that's actually pretty good. You can get a better rare though but it will cost more. I actually suggested this to someone 30 pages back or so.

Explodie chests work. Why wouldn't they?

Really enjoying the build so far. First Sirus is up to be killed (you see, I don`t play that often).
So my question is:
Where do I get "chance to impale" from except gems (Impale & Dread Banner = 60%) and tree (20%)? Need another 20% I`m afraid...
Gem, tree, dread banner, alt quality gems (check gem section), watcher's eye, cluster jewel. I could be forgetting something too. Also 20/20 dread is 22%.

Hi, I'm trying to put all this together, and the truth is that it is very difficult for me. The sword "Midnight Blade" is impossible to craft and does not exist in the game, what can I do?

Been following this build, so far so good this league except I get random 1 shots from some bosses like Baran.

I have around 5.9k hp now, other than buying stuff with more life is there anyway that I can improve my tankiness?

Get block from somewhere else as described in the guide and get a normal sword with high pDPS.

If you're block capped then the next thing you need is high life. Block, fortify, life are the main things keeping us alive. 5,9K is low for this build.
Also if you see a slam coming just leap away. LS is very fast and I don't suggest multistrike on BS so that LS can be used instantly.
