IDK if this can be called "variation" Most likely this is "making builds form sh*t and sticks".

What do you think about it, guys?

UPD: works pretty shitty, not worth it.

I don't get it - why does the physical build work so bad?
In the Aether setup I can get up to 650k crits, but in Physical I don't see crits more than 250k.

And Physical setup have so good physical RR sources - 26 from Spectral Wrath, 32 from Assassin's Blade, 30 (in my drop) from Guardian, total 88. It can't even burst out Fabius quickly. UPD: I mean, it kills and lives, but it kills nemeses very slow compared to Aether version.
UPD2: also tried with Avenger's Crusher and Gutsmasher (more damage), still bad.
Is that some kind of bug or I'm just doing something wrong?

Or just your typical Primal Strike build.
Problem is not levelling with this build but getting gear to make it work, and without the gear it's pretty bad.
My version used both Aether and Lightning. Iskandra set, Temporal Arcblade - but still only 70k-ish DPS.

Due to how armor work in the game - each source of flat phyz dmg is cheched against armor separately. This lead to huge DPS loss if you lack enough punch to overcome this mecanic.

It's not Avenger that is what it's wrong

But really what ptiro said. You need a really good base of phys dmg which is lacking in this case.

WPS is also not at ZT level

I leveled this build using Lightning Savagery with random found lightning 2H weapon. Everything went pretty smooth. Then I changed the weapon to Temporal Arcblade (75 lvl) and it turned into Lightning + Aether build, like Dragon said. Also had no problems with walkthrough

Armor! That's it.
So, Physical damage works differently. I understand now

Random tangent: IT is unaffected by armor, yes?
