Might be because Crab has been a weird jack of all trades constellation for so long and people have made up their minds about it.

Saying HP regen is weak sounds weird when it's one of the key aspects in Witch Blade. Even my commando has 800 regen. Your Wb should have ~ 900-1000 easily with BoD, not to mention the handy heal itself. I can hardly call 1000 regen trivial, I for one will take it. I even made a build based on it partially that is slower to kill but has 100% success rate made more for HC players.And yes it also has Arcane barrier
I tried fighting Anasteria with much higher DA (in Markovian set and 100% physique), it doesnt help at all. MASSIVELY overcapped resists are what really matters when fighting Anasteria, and can trivialize the fight. I can do that if i drink most resistance potions, to overcap resists even more.
And Anasteria herself isnt scary, she just greatly improves damage of all other enemies (reducing your resists), and it's THEIR increased damage makes her dangerous. Same could be said about wave 149 too, though there are less resist reduction, but more damage reduction/fumble.

When i said "300-500 hp/sec regen", i meant EXTRA 300-500 hp/sec regen above those 300-500 i already have by default. Maybe if i played hardcore, i'd gone more defensively...

No, Maul is good only if you can bind it to spammable skill (so it will trigger every second). Sadly, Maul cant be bound to Curse of Frailty, that's why it wont show its true potential, and will be more like wasted point.

As a shield did anyone tried using Empowered Lichguard Sure you will lose skill points but you gain 80% Damage Absorption for 5sec with a 40 Second Skill Recharge.

I haven't had the time to try it out myself i might be able to do it this weekend.

Yes, like i said, her own damage is not that high. But she doesnt spawn alone in Crucible, and her RR increases damage of other enemies VERY significantly.

It's not melee but there is no other way. Blade arc spam sucks

No. Not Dreeg's Eye, it's really awful. Disgusting green stuff.
I will make my own build looking into Mortal Kombat's build on previous page. Though I have some questions about it:
Why Wendigo is not taken?
Why Solael's Witchfire is just 1/12?
Why SoC is not taken?
Can I drop Cadence and put these points into Soldier's defensive skills?

I also recommend checking Drizzto's update to the OPs' build. I would not play WB without BOD maxed seriously.

I actually took Vendigo with my latest experiment. It feels good, actually. Anvil is also nice, but in Crucible, regen from Vendigo is better i think. Need to fix the link soon

Solael's Witchfire is too weak per point. 1% attack speed an some chaos damage per point isnt worth it.

SoC = Sigil of Consumption? Why would i need that in physical build?

Cadence is my main attack. How can you drop it?

If you max BoD, you give up something for that, cause skill points are limited? What would you give up? Field command? Or maybe Blitz? Or War Cry? Or Scars of Battle? All those have higher per-point efficiency than BoD, and OA.. well, you can get it with items of cunning.
