That version might change once I get the weapon

-Avenger of Cairn is always a solid option for Soldiers. If you want more defense go for it.

-Ghoul's importance can only be determined once I test things

That kind of explains what I did wrong on mine... and will help when I build a battlemage.

I also understand now why I saw all those +flat type of damage on various devotions that I thought was useless. Turns out it's not that useless
Just know that flat damage only effect weapon attack, or skills that use %of wapon damage, while persent damage effect everything that use this type of damage

One of the big things that I think will make this build strong is the usage of Korvaak's Deception with 2x Voidheart, which should make blazing charge pretty ridiculously strong.

I use bloody pox instead of Sigil of Consumption. In my experience I've found Sigil's damage output to be pretty meh. I'm only using Pox for the massive OA reduction, it's a similar skill investment for better return, I feel. (Black Death's chance to confuse target may also be nice in certain situations). I invested in Blindside instead of Blitz/Vulnerability for the massive DA reduction. I invested in squad tactics instead of Deadly Momentum for more attack speed, though I can see how Deadly Momentum could be a good investment to respec some points into. Resist reduction appears to be identical, though Malediction might proc more often then Black Star, depending on enemy DA.

EDIT: investing in Ghoul instead of Fiend feels like it would make the build a bit safer to play by providing an extra circuit breaker https://www.grimtools.com/calc/nZorvQlV

EDIT 2: Respecced some points into Deadly Momentum for a fairly large sheet damage increase: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/xZyvxQwN

For crucible you should get Dying God and Abomination constellation for any and all Chaos build you play.

Not picking Abominable Might skill for a Chaos build in Crucible is a waste

Only if you ply with shield like your build. For DW sadly it's DA whoring with gear/devos. After testing Belgo and Dw chaos cadence you need very high DA for 160 and 170. Just the way things are in crucilbe at the moment

Huh, that's weird. I thought that sweet flat damage would buff your offense to the point where offense becomes your best defense.

So did I. and it can burst even harder than belgo. But you still can't really dispatch one nemesis before they all rally together. Sadly 4.2K DA is the (bitter)sweet spot. i'm done with Dw in cruci for now anyway. It was just an idea to try out the DA nonsense meta and as far as flat dmg DW, it's the only way to do it reliably
