Sorry my english is not good, but will try explain result of this build on Crucible.

I have tried several DW setups of this build on Crucible and they don't work. This build have good single target DPS to facetank Mad Queen in main company, but luck of AOE for Crucible(single dps not effective). Many times just die on Challenger from elites burst damage, not enough defense tools to survive from many sources of damage at once.

Only tank shield build can finish Gladiator difficulty, but it still quite difficult to do.

Certainly going to try this with a death knight when the expansion hits.

Replacing the occultist with:
Spectral Binding / Spectral Wrath
Harbinger of Souls
Siphon Souls / Blood Boil
Reaping Strike

Facetanking builds are the best builds.

Any levelling advice?

If you can craft Bladesworn Talisman and two Omen you can start playing with DW build from level 25. Better start from Soldier tree: max Cadance, Deadly Momentum, Oleron's Rage, 1 point in Blitz for mobility and Field Command for OA/DA. Then switch to Occultist tree(heal + damage) or finish Soldier tree(HP + resists) depends on items which you have.

Devotions:
1) Jackal
2) Gallows
3) Wendigo's Mark
4) Hawk
5) Behemoth
6) Empty Throne
7) Wayward Soul
8) Manticore
9) Sailor's Guide
10) Eel
11) Undo all points from crossroads and put into Dying God

If you don't have such items then just play as physical/vitality 1h+shiled Cadance tank, maybe a bit slow but safe options. Also could be used 2h Cadance/Blade Arc build, but then need Kraken which will slow down Devotion progression.

I'm speaking about current DW conversion physical to vitality build, not in general about all Crucible builds . We don't have so much burst damage and survive skills like DW Cold or Phys Blademaster.

For example on Gladiator 110 wave Fabius made 8.5k crit hit with crit mutator on me and kill in 1 sec, even with Solemn Watcher devotion which give me 2100+DA unbuffed. In result even this build can facetank Ultimate Mad Queen, it can't beat Crucible as you need survive from many source of damage at once and we don't have any life saver tools for that, only life leech.

To beat Gladiator i tried to go more defensively with main goal to at least survive on hard 137, 146,147(Mad Queen), 149, 150 waves. This build works for this purpose:
http://www.grimtools.com/calc/eZP8BJZ0

Still it has low dps and quite slow, but can finish Gladiator depends on enemies. If you will face on 149 wave Sential + Sharzul it will be really hard fight, as well as on 150 wave two Zantai which have high vitality resist. I was lucky and didn't face these enemies during my run.

With buffs Empyrion's Guidence and Might of Amatok(use buffs 2 times on 100 and 130 waves) and Vanguard Banner lvl 3 i finish Gladiator.


This why i say in previous post: "Only tank shield build can finish Gladiator difficulty, but it still quite difficult to do."
