Thanks, Ceno. Your approval means a lot to me.

Ahhh, oh no! But seriously, the last point was basically an afterthought, since devotions were already planned.
Nevertheless, since we are MINMAXING AS FUCK, you are completely correct. Appreciated the input.

Something ticked me... and I decided to return to this build for a second. Applied Mark of the Myrmidon to the shield and... well.

It now sports 95% Block Recovery, over 160k Retaliation Damage and 53% Damage Reflect.

And yes, I know about high DA. I learned to like it slow and steady.At least this character is truly unkillable now. Also he still has Cadence, which definitely means something at least.

Is it possible for you to put in the order for Devotion? I have no idea where to start.

Yes, of course. As soon as I finish with my Range Cadence build. Still polishing it, but don't worry, you'll get everything needed for each of my build.

And so this build receives yet another good (but probably the last) update directly to it's head, by inserting there a Prismatic Diamond.

It now has 73% Damage Reflect and a new absorption source.

The build now has the first successful recorded video against Mad Queen - 1 min. 50 seconds Kill.

Watch it here - https://youtu.be/Ug0j8Ijx1n0

After numerous runs on Mad Queen with this build, I concluded that the success rate to kill her is 2 to 1.

There are various factors applying to it. She can be pretty passive the entire fight and if your Retaliation is proccing well, she'll be down quickly - minimum results I achived after tinkering is 30-40 seconds.
But sometimes she is agressive as fuck and uses her retaliation like every 3-4 seconds. In this case, I's advisable to run away or kill the worms nearby.
Still, very often she can just oneshot you basically, shredding nearly 18k HP in one single hit, so be careful.

And yes, I lowered my DA, so Retaliation would proc more often, trash mob clear speed multiplied at least by two, heroes take longer, but still go down pretty quickly with my health bar stuck in place.

The biggest Annoyance is definitely Valdaran.

He couldn't damage me at all, so I just stayed near him for 10 minutes, then he basically killed himself. I was so bored, I didn't even record this. However, this was before my stat redistribution, so now he goes down faster.
The video will be up too.

I also tested this build on Fabius - the results were absolutely marvelous.

Watch it here and apologize for delay on showing the firs half of the fight. Basically, I was almost sleeping already, so when I noticed him, half of his health was already gone somewhere.

The build already followed a huge revamp to increase Retaliation up to over 440k damage, but I'm still tinkering with it, so final results will be posted later.

Added the guide. Enjoy, guys.

Still conducting testing on Mad Queen (managed to do 4 consistent kills in a row will full tanking) and Kupacabra.

Kupacabra is a fucking asshole.

Also, check out new MQ kill video in the OP.

Seems like another good alternative to Warder retaliation build. What kind of retaliation damage can this build pull off at the max?

The build offers four sources of Retaliation, which, when stack, can hit up to 400+k damage.
The highest I've seen is 403k on some Colossi in Malmouth Harbor. Very satisfying seeing his health suddenly shredded off, when usually people tend to kite these guys, and you are tanking them face to face.
