Default Newbie wondering if Forcewave build is end game viabile

I'm level 43 and playing on Normal, having success with spamming 2h FW tremor, but wondering how this will pan out end game. I like the feel of this type of gameplay and it would be nice if I can make it work in the end but if a different sword/shield build will end up being better regardless then fine, but just wondering if so, if there's any builds I could be pointed to or general tips.

It is viable and fun. There is a bunch of builds here, and several are forcewave builds.

2H forcewave is great for all campaign and crucible 100-150. In the very end-game, for gladiator crucible waves 150-170 you'll have to respec into s&b version of a forcewave build. You can find such witchblade in my compilation thread, but you don't need it now, dozens of happy hours await you.
Good luck!

Completely viable, as you can see i made my build around it. Maybe, he isnt suited to 150-170 Crucible waves, but those are just ridiculously overtuned and imbalanced content, that isnt even worth efforts made to complete it, and requires very specific builds (just like Ravager, Mogdrogen, etc).
150-170 waves on Challenger can be farmed by 2-h Forcewave, same for 100-150 waves on Gladiator.
