Cool build. I was theorycrafting something similar but I was worried about the low OA being a DPS killer in the endgame, glad to see yours works.

I have a little more offensive variation of Octavius build (I prefer tactician), which can do 150-170 glad and his OA jumps up to 4k with Cruicible buff
https://www.grimtools.com/calc/DV9rqEnZ

More OA, little less RR, but Forcewave high Crit multiplier offers higher clear speed and up to 180k IT ticks due to low-average monster phys. res. However few AoM bosses,like Galakros, have insane 68% phys. resistance , so it is easily to drop timer in that waves

Its a lot less RR actually (2 rings + COF = -45% phys RR). However I think Inq's high crit damage does make up for that and can actually outperform my build against mobs with low res , also constant RR = more consistent damage output.

Ah, so Witchblade with a shield and exactly 3 skills in Occultist mastery, never seen that before!

JK, good build, just being salty over new Crucible shoehorning players into two very boring build metas.

Good build. But why not pick Dildo of Vire?

I will have to give up two other tier 3 to get it, don't think it's worth the slightly better damage. Maybe if they tone crucible down in the future I'll be more offensive but for now I'll just stay alive ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hey at least they are active skills, you must see the DK version.

I had the exact same thought. When we all think rationally we all come to the same conclusion I guess. Some differences between OP's build and my theorycraft:

- 2 skill points spent for Fevered Rage for speeding up those situations where you don't need all that defence
- Ascendant-heavy, more offensive devotion setup with Vire, Hammers, and Trample. If you do the math, Trample is a really strong source of IT damage (for a devotion skill).
- Strong investment in the Blade Arc line w/ Clean Sweep as another source of IT damage and for most effectively applying IT weapon damage.
- Stronger investment in Shield Training
- 80% Reflected Damage Reduction instead of 73%, on average
- Consideration of the use of Mythical Bonesnap Gavel, which is actually stronger than Pummeler in terms of average IT damage. But it's also really dangerous to use from a reflected damage point of view if that 10% chance procs on the wrong enemy...

It's probably not going to be too time consuming to shop for a Stonefaced Mutant Bludgeon, which, even without a suffix, is already better than Pummeler.
