[3.15] Hollow Palm Ground Slam Build | Berserker | Expedition | Path of Exile 3.15

Hey guys, here is another hollow palm build. This is probably last build of this league. I really enjoyed playing this one but crafting items was painful. Fun to play, great boss killer, alright clear speed.

What is Hollow Palm Technique?
Hollow Palm Technique is a keystone passive skill which makes the player character count as Dual Wielding while Unencumbered. Basically we can't have any weapon, shield or gloves but we gain these stats:
- 60% more Attack Speed while you are Unencumbered
- 14 to 20 Added Attack Physical Damage per 10 Dexterity while you are Unencumbered

I had 1631 dexterity so you do the math.

Brutal Restraint: Names or numbers don't matter, just look for useful mods such as:
- 5% increased Dexterity
- +20 to Dexterity
- 5% chance to gain a Frenzy Charge on Kil
- 4% increased maximum Life

Deafening Essence of Sorrow is gonna be your friend while crafting those items :)

I played consecrated path chieftain last league. Leaving the link here if anyone interested: https://youtu.be/gONFDfbsptw

Looks like an interesting build.

a few questions:

1.) Does it pop Legions reliably?
2.) How does it fare in 100% delirium?
3.) fast enough for alva incursions with delirium?
4.) How squishy is the build?
5.) Is there no alternative to 'Second Sight' from Brutal Restraint? (probably not though)

hmm nvm might be hard to get hollow palm first week, might need to do a generic 2 hand ground slam and switch it to holow later on
I really wanted to make a facebreaker but hollow palm seem better and more fun tbh.

What about explody chest changes?I actually didnt really get those is that a random mod now or what?Is it also weaker now i guess?
is there an league starter version of this build?

90c+ just for the hollow palm jewel is a tad much for me :)

also how do you stay Unencumbered at all times?
YES I support the game, NO I dont agree with many GGG decisions
Atlas of Worlds is the worst thing that happen to POE.
Lab still sucks balls.

League start is kinda hard, I did it with classic two hand mace and normal ground slam, saved for hollow palm jewel and rerolled.

Unencumbered means without weapon and gloves, so this build is basically built around stacking dexterity.

But still the build feels strong after going hollow palm - I´m currently in yellow maps and it feels absolutely easy.

Man I wish you didn't remove the guide for Cheiftain. Having a blast leveling it that's for sure.
Is there a reason you scrapped it? Seems legit, I haven't gotten to maps yet but I did cruel lab at lv39 without issue. How does it fare in yellow/red maps this league?

btw!
Hollow Palm is by far the most fun you could ever have leveling a 2nd character for the league! :)
