can't be brain-dead using this build, need a lot of attention to HP and which one to kill 1st. very squishy but it has good CC (slow, freeze, etc) which is a good trade off.
and most of all it's enjoyable to play
OH WOW!! Thank you for sharing this! Yes... health is really the main issue with this build . I think I will take MoD and try the gladiator crucible . I think this build definitely has enough dmg to clear it! I'm glad you tried it out :P

It wasn't till act 3 or so that my aura wasn't 1 shotting anymore Eventually I maxed lethal assault and put 1 point into SS and in combination with the VoS/NC and procs from random gear and devotions I can one shot almost anything with 1 SS. I'm now putting additional points into SS and levelling my arcanist mastery, also have 1 point in CC moves.

I've never had so much fun levelling an alt. I figure Elite will bring some additional challenges but most of the gear I have saved up is from 50-75 so should be doable.
I'm really glad you are enjoying the build . Personally, I had really hard time leveling this character... (Died A LOT!) But I really like strategy I hope that your happy journey continues!

You don't need to follow this order but this is one way to do it.
1. 1 Red
2. Finish the Viper
3. 1 Green
4. Finish the Hawk
5. 1 Blue
6. Finish the Behemoth (Giant blood)
7. Take away the Green and Red
8. 1 Purple
9. Finish the Empty Throne (Resistances)
10. Take away the Purple
11. Finish the Rhowan's Crown, Owl, Hammer, Spider
12. Finish Leviathan
13. Finish Sailor's Guide
14. Take away the blue
15. Amatok the sprit of Winter

I have 4 cunnings, 13 Spirits, and all physiques. This character has a major health problem...

you're welcome. i have no issue with damage, saw many 100k above pops up.
but yeah the trade-off seems fair enough, which is survivability, esp againts big hitter like tyrant, shaz'rul and friends. (i got mauled to 2k hp by wave 149 shaz'rul once, and im not happy with that).

it's not braindead build to facetank, i died a lot trying that in cruc using this build, except when i use mirror.

MoD is a must esp againts extra waves, i'll risk dark-dreams for it.
-1sec belgothian tho :( will they decide to nerf it again to 0.5sec

To increase health, I would suggest wearing bennjihar pauldrons of kings to fulfil that stun resistance plus 900+ raw health and nice armor rating. Any prefix with resistances are fine but of course stonehide is the best. The replacement will push your health to close to 10k, at the expense of some loss in OA and DA from the devil spaulders. It's all up to you.

73 now and just started ultimate, only one death and that was in port valbury on normal I went a slight different route and ignored leviathan and went for tree of healing. Once I find the ammy I'll probably focus on your set up more (its the only item I didn't have once I cleaned up my mules).
