This build leverages March of the legion and Elegant Hubris (Chitus) to achieve some very good tankyness, while maintaining good dps. You can tank any non damage over time dps source. The max block causes us to negate most hits and heals us for about 500 health each block, the 86 all res makes us take very little damage from elemental sources, and the high armor ensures there is no damage that can one shot us.

The build can do any content comfortably. I did t15 blighted maps easily, Charged Tul, Charged Xoph and other guardians etc. The gear i have is good, but not fully optimized. For example i could add 'extra curse' on chest, and put Despair in the wand, and i could multimod the ring, get a wand with the chaos dmg + cast speed mod

hello ,

nice build. Could you please explain how the march of the legion works with Blood magic and how you activate the auras? In your youtube video I cant see the aura skills in your skill bar.

greetings

My guess is he uses Blessing to turn auras into spells with a duration. Mortal Conviction gives you one aura for free so you pay nothing for them. Chitus then gives 50% aura effect to achieve 86% res.

ArtCrusade is pretty much right. March of the legion turns them into duration spells, mortal conviction gives you one aura with no duration for free, which is how i have Flesh and Stone up. The rest of the auras have a duration, and since Mortal Conviction gives you free auras, as long as they have a duration, they reserve nothing.

The 25% increased effect of auras on you on my chest combined with the Supreme Ego and surprisingly (maybe a bug?) the skill point in 'Devotion' bumps the resists up to 86.
When I watch your videos you seem to get the auras up seamlessly. I just don't get how you do it. Can you explain in detail how you get the auras up. The only way I can do it is use two hands and I'm pretty sure there is a better way.
I added a video of a T16 Cortex boss fight that really showcases how tanky the build is
Mortal Conviction only allows for the usage of ONE AURA at ANY given time, regardless of reserve (even if it's 0%!)
GGG's awesome. Thank you.

Oops.
