Finally, when patch is released, Crucible buff made this build Gladiator viable. However, it's somewhat slow due to natural lack of AoE in Blademaster class combo. Under Nature's Guardians you faceroll everything, but when it expires, try to avoid enclaves and Aleks meteors.

Updated grimtools link and uploaded fresh videos.

In Myth Reaver's Claw, there's a modifier for Cadence: 1 Target Max.

What does this mean? 1 extra target? Limit to just 1 target only?

By dual-wielding it, does it increase to 2?

This means each Cadence super-strike hits 4 targets (instead of default 3) if you equip one Reaver's Claw and 5 targets if you equip two of them.

TY! To be honest, this build is very safe and fun to play, but if you look for Power, look at this build too. (Cheers, @Superfluff!)

Who expected this hit from the past, huh?

Yeah, that's it! Meet the reworked version of the Impaler - DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster.

I saw this build in its Valdun's version and always thought why don't you take Dual Claws + 3 piece belgothian and use steroided MA + Execution as WPS. As well as Belgothian Relic to spam that RoS more frequently, since it's such a nuke you have (maybe even Conduit for it). But under 11 minutes is already impressive so you might know better after all

I love the Valdun, Belgo and Warborn, but among these three only Warborn has such high HP, Cadence boosts, flat damage and armor combined, other sets are worse here.
Wearing a full Belgo set turns this build into another, so obviously I won't do that, and wearing a few Belgo pieces is inferior to current setup
About relic: Doom is better damage-wise, it has built-in armor, attack speed and Deadly Momentum craft bonus, coupled with Doomforce which is very good skill (converted to Pierce). That's why I think Doom is the best relic for Soldier, even Pierce.
Btw, I managed to squeeze in the Rimetongue ammy and Bladetwister signet for extra 20% pierce rr, it's definitely better than virtually useless conduit which has none but +1 to NB and some nice resistances

Understandable, lack of cadence bonuses might be a factor here. You have obviously battled tested your stuff
