Default Passive/No attack, just stand/run build

Hey folks,

Tried to do a little searching, but didn't find much on the forum, but what kind of route would you go for a passive build? Trying to beat HC veteran (first difficulty for now) with a passive build. My rules for now are that the character doesn't make any offensive movements, so he/she must just stand or run while destroying enemies with skills such as vindictive flame/ulzuins wrath.

As of right now, I defeated The Warden and my build looks like this:


Survivability is good thanks to Menhir's Will and the devotion skill as well as timing potions right, especially on bosses.

Gear wise; I'm trying to stack retaliation as much as possible for now, just mixing that with health regen, +vit and resistances.

Not sure what I can do to make this build more efficient. The skills are doing great, but not sure how much the retaliation is actually contributing right now. I have about 138 pierce retal. + 18% modifier along with some fire retal.

Any ideas are appreciated. I'm sure there's a build somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Cheers!

[] Burning Commando - Relaxed and Effective HC Gladiator Farming

This build here is probably the one you are looking for, gameplay is passive enough for me!!

Ignore skills like vindictive flame imo. Go for retaliation warder. Youll need to just run past most ranged enemies though. Once you get a few of the 55 pierce / %ret pieces and a retaliation constellation or twp youll be doing fine. Not sure how youd do up till warden though (youd need a dew pieces gear + first ret constellation + an aug or two before it really takes off.)
