Default [1.0.6.0] Impaler - DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster



Here is my variation of DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster.

Now Gladiator viable. [1.0.6.0]
>> Grimtools << (default defensive setup)
>> Grimtools << (easier assembly with only one MI)
>> Grimtools << (investments into cunning => offensive setup)
UPD: under Nature's Guardians you faceroll everything, but when it expires, try to avoid enclaves and Aleks meteors.

Screenshots:
Spoiler!


Main concept:
  • 2 pieces of Valdun to push the armor piercing to 100%;
  • 2 Myth. Reaver's Claws for Cadence and Soldier bonuses;
  • Overcapped Ring of Steel with many %WD and flat gear bonuses supposed to be a nuke.
  • Core items for this build are: Valdun pieces, Reaver's Claws, amulet and these brilliant gauntlets. Other items are taken to obtain various bonuses and are not required for build to work.

Devotion choices:
  • These constellations are mainly here to obtain health, stats, OA and DA while not missing Assassin's Mark and Blades of Wrath.
  • Ishtak is taken to get more health and slow resistance. 45% damage absorption with near 40% uptime is really nice too.
  • Didn't even get Oleron or Unknown Soldier. Oleron needs way too much devotion points and is its proc is virtually useless for Pierce BM. 70 Pierce and 70% main hand WD, seriously? And Unknown Soldier... it sucks. No comments.

Updates:
  • Slightly changed Devotions to match new realities of 1.0.6.0.

Waiting for 1.0.6.0 to test this one in a Crucible/170. With 33% extra resists it will run really smooth, I suppose. Didn't test it yet.

How fast can you reset the training dummy? I know it's not the best way to measure build performance but can give some insight for sure.

Looks nice!
Should become viable for cruicible 170 in 1.0.6.0.
Pierce damage is in such bad condition! I've built DW pierce infiltrator with belgothian set and yeah, I was able to finish 170. In 20 min! Twenty!! Some tanks can do it faster. What can I say? Pierce...
