Default [Vitality Melee] Azragorian Tactics - Vitality based DW Fleshwarped Strikes Cabalist

This is a conversion based build making use of the brand new Auto-Attacker Fleshwarped Strikes for Vitality Melee.
I was kinda undecided on whether to post a Fire Strike Vitality build or this one but this one appealed to me more so I went with this one


Grimtools-

My Setup - https://www.grimtools.com/calc/xZydnrnV



*Screenshot with Hungering Void, Blood of Dreeg and Soul Harvest



FAQ-

Do we need specific rolls on the Scepter?

One affix needs to roll with % Vitality Damage or better yet flat Vitality Damage


Have you tried Dark One Pieces?

Dark One is a DPS loss, the same goes for Riftwarped Grasp


Do we need max rolls on conversion?

Preferably yes, the rolls shouldn't be too low. It should be above 28%.


Will this work with any other class combination?

I have my doubts regarding how good Conjurer and Ritualist will be when compared to Cabalist. But I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work. For Conjurer and Ritualist I'd say this setup would be better.



In Closing-

Credits to korsar for providing some raw data saving me a great amount of time.
And to Koravel for some valuable tips

The Aether variant of this build can be found here

This build was fun to play with, hope you guys like it as well.

+100 for that demonic look!

wonder which version you prefer more. Aether or Vitality? I guess there is no need to ask!

This is not solely directed at this build I am just curious overall. Taking Necro to 50 but not taking a skill there, gives this build 40 phys and spirit, 20 cunning, and 190 flat hp and energy.

Is is not better to leave it at 40 and use the 10 points somewhere else?

If they answer is "Vitality" then you hit jackpot

Hey thanks mate
I completely overlooked Blood Boil was an OA debuff. I invested extra points into Necro for the DA but the OA debuff is much more valuable
Sheet DPS increased by 2k

Cool thanks! Was even going to mention Blood Boil, I had seen it in a different build and didn't understand why they took it till I read the whole thing. The -OA is a really nice help.

Not sure about other people but I personally am not a big fan of RE. As a damage reduction debuff I have a higher chance of taking Ill Omen over Decay
It's a matter of playstyle to me and that's why I went with Oleron on this build

Made some changes in grim tools and hopefully I can test this out in the future. I've been wanting to do a dual wield vitality build for awhile. Although I figured it would be a Death Knight/Reaper, but this looks more promising.
https://www.grimtools.com/calc/r2BG9xWV
Require's another green, changes some pre/suffixes on current items, changes augments, went with riftstone for a shadowstrike mobility skill, changed devotions to pick up fiend and typhos. Net from all changes is a ~800 weapon damage boost, small da boost, very large armor boost, fixed pierce resist, and more life leech.
Had to give up Ghoul, but the Leech from constant Fiend procs should make up for it.
Lost some OA/crit damage/hp as well.

But overall should be performance/dps increase.

Edit: Devotions with ghoul https://www.grimtools.com/calc/62aOkjEZ and using scourge relic
