Default [1.0.6.1] Impaler - DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster, Gladiator farmer (under 11 minutes)



Here is my variation of DW Pierce Cadence Blademaster.

>> Grimtools << (no MI items used)

[1.0.7.1] Tears through Gladiator in 8 minutes with banner.
Stomping enemies with shockwave and sawing them with RoS is such fun!



Core of the build
  • 2 pieces of Rimetongue to push the armor piercing to 100%;
  • 2 Myth. Reaver's Claws for Cadence and Soldier bonuses;
  • Overcapped Ring of Steel with many %WD and gear bonuses supposed to be a nuke.
  • Core items for this build are: Rimetongue pieces, Reaver's Claws and these brilliant gauntlets.
  • As a side effect, this build have up to 130k Internal Trauma ticks.

Key explanations
  • These constellations are mainly here to obtain health, stats, OA and DA while not missing Assassin's Mark and Blades of Wrath.

Devotion route
  1. Assassin's Blade, Ghoul, Wraith, Hawk, Hammer, Blades of Nadaan, remove Hammer;
  2. Sailor's Guide, Harp, Assassin;
  3. Solemn Watcher, Eel, Empyrion.
    After completing Assassin's Blade, Wraith, Ghoul and Hawk you'll have unused Crossroads nodes, remove them at the Spirit guide.

Updates:
  • Slightly changed Devotions to match new realities of 1.0.6.0.
  • [1.0.6.1] Major update: dropped all green items and kept the offensive potential.
  • [1.0.7.1] Major update: took some WPS, invested more points into Cunning, went Empyrion devotion route because Ishtak was nerfed.

Credits
  • sir spanksalot - gear adjustments.

Max crit dealt (solo, Crucible buffs, Vanguard Banner)



Stats pane (Deadly Momentum up)





Outdated versions

Waiting for 1.0.6.0 to test this one in a Crucible/170. With 33% extra resists it will run really smooth, I suppose. Didn't test it yet.

How fast can you reset the training dummy? I know it's not the best way to measure build performance but can give some insight for sure.

Looks nice!
Should become viable for cruicible 170 in 1.0.6.0.
Pierce damage is in such bad condition! I've built DW pierce infiltrator with belgothian set and yeah, I was able to finish 170. In 20 min! Twenty!! Some tanks can do it faster. What can I say? Pierce...
