Default [1.0.6.1] Impaler - DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster, Gladiator farmer (under 11 minutes)



Here is my variation of DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster.
>> Grimtools << (no MI items used)

[1.0.6.1] Tears through Gladiator in 11 minutes.
Stomping enemies with shockwave and sawing them with RoS is such fun!



Core of the build
  • 2 pieces of Rimetongue 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 gear bonuses supposed to be a nuke.
  • Core items for this build are: Rimetongue pieces, Reaver's Claws and these brilliant gauntlets.
  • As a side effect, this build have up to 130k Internal Trauma ticks.

Key explanations
  • 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.

Updates:
  • Slightly changed Devotions to match new realities of 1.0.6.0.
  • [1.0.6.1] Major update: dropped all green items and kept the offensive potential.

Credits
  • sir spanksalot - gear adjustments.

Max crit dealt (Crucible buffs, no banners)



Stats pane (Deadly Momentum + Fighting Spirit up)





Outdated versions

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...
