As for guardian gaze, I also really like the looks of the skill, but the range is really short. Kind like the scorpion sting.

Btw, why the viper?

Really cool gear, looks awesome!!!
You can also do something like this to get both eye of the guardian and rumor: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/m23wEyB2

This has 4 points left you can put in probably torch, lantern, or affliction for fetid pool. You could also move out of viper into bat, but I think at that point you are going to run out of decent things to bind to.

I completed this build for pre-AoM a long while back. After AoM release I farmed until I managed to land all mythical pieces and was sorely disappointed by its performance. So this is definitely great news. Just checked grimtools and the proc is actually stronger than the original one (+ the eyes can still pierce not that it really matters for this build)

I cannot see why this would not work, but whether it can compare to other crucible AoM build, I cannot say for sure.

At least for nostalgia value I suppose

Why leveling with Soldier? You can use DEE right from the start.

Thanks for the reply,

I am not very experienced player, so I maxed Eye first but had serious issues with energy, also killing speed was low compared to Forcewave so I focused on soldier.

Now im lvl 60 in act 4 ultimate, I guess I could swap alredy?

Dont have all the gear mentioned on the guide, so I was asking for alternative lower gear advice to start with.

thanks for feedback!!

I did clear challenger with this setup pre AoM with mostly reputation gear and vendor items, hope it help.

Thanks a lot for reply, very helpfull indeed.

Regarding shields, never pay atention to them until now, so, which are the stats I should be looking for on them? which one would be BIS in pre-AoM?

Thanks for feedback!

The build uses the shield for its skill (which is used to proc manticore) and phys res. Don't bother with shield and related soldier passives until you get either versions of Siegebreaker. An off-hand will also solve energy issues during leveling.

Thanks for the tips.

I switched to witchbalde and, will all the gear I had at hand, came with this :

https://www.grimtools.com/calc/p25KDYoZ

I am very satisfied with it, finished ultimate at level 71 and its been really easy and fast, everything around melts and its extremelly tanky, act 3 and 4 have been a cheesckae, really.

@Strigvir , do you think using shield does not worth the try if not siegebreaker? I find overguard very usefull vs. taugh bosses, I am facetanking everyone here.

Which would be next steps on my build? Where can I get Siegebreaker? Any advice on helm (I would like to change that one but dont have anything better, I think)?

Hi guys, thres been sometime and been improving a bit. This is how I do look atm.

https://www.grimtools.com/calc/4VxdkYMV

My main concern is boots. I got Golemborn but dont know why are better than the ones using atm (Voidwalkers). Can someone please enlighting me?

Also, my Challenger crucible 100-150 success is 50%, any suggestions?

Until I get the recomended gear, what could I change on my items?

Thanks for feedback

Edit: also got the girdle of stolen dreams belt, but dont use since the current one gives me the high stund reduction and I feel better on crucible with it.
