-::- Introduction -::-
Welcome!!

A bit of background…

This guide has been around since 2.6. It was originally called “ScourgeFlurry”. It was initially focused on a Berserker build using a combination of The Scourge + BloodSeeker + Blade Flurry. Needless to say, a lot of things have changed since then.

To simplify things this guide now only contains the current league builds as to not confuse people.

Spoiler

I had played GH in 3.5 and my STD was still setup, so I updated the tree for 3.7 and test in T16 Hydra and T17 Shaper:

    I've put Vaal Lightning strike together with Blade Flurry as it really shines with the same links that VLS uses.

    For trash I run VLS + Ancestral.
    At tanky boss I swap VLS > BF and Ancestral > Full Life.

    I also switch between Herald of Ice for fast mapping and Herald of Purity for max DPS.

    The Vaal Double Strike boys are still there supported by a secondary Damage on Full Life, along with the Vaal Ancestral Warchief and Ancestral Warchief. This setup still tears to shreds T16 bosses.

    You can run Frost Blades or Vaal Double Strike too with this. It's just the VLS + BF combo works well and is fun to play, doesn't mean those are the only skills that work. I suggest you test.

    If you wanna do this as Jugg, Zerk or Slayer it would work just as well. See Frost Blades guide below for Ascendancy recommendations.

    Keep in mind that neither Shock dmg (~+23% more dmg) nor the non-vaal dmg skill craft on boots are being calculated in PoB.

    Enemy Ignited: Get some #-# fire dmg or fire conversion on a piece of gear (check my jewel) so Ignite gets enabled and Yoke takes advantage of it as an Ailment.

    Enemy Chilled: I have Hatred, Mark of the Elder, and "Frost" blades, so doing quite a bit of cold damage.

    Enemy Intimidated: Belt of the Deceiver.

    Enemy Taunted: Champ Ascendancy

    Exposure: Cold: Wave of Conviction (Cold Dmg highest.)

    Keep in mind that I DID NOT ENABLE in PoB the potential added dmg from 73% chance to Shock, nor the non-vaal skill dmg craft on boots.


    *** You won't have 14M sustained DPS. Stats enabled are there to show you what effects are being taken advantage of. No build needs this much DPS.

    ** Champ is the middle ground between Jugg and Zerk, so that's why I'm showing those stats. See exports below for Jugg/Zerk/Slayer stats.

    * You can make this build work with other Melee skills, such as BF, Cyclone, and many others.

    You can convert it to Jugg, Zerk, Champ, Slayer as you wish. Use the main build info for Ascendancies.

    IMPORTANT DETAILS

    *The jewels listed are actual jewels I've bought, and your goal is to try to find the cheapest similar ones to those.

    *The jewelry listed is not cheap, but it's there to give you an example of what to look for.

    *Your aim always is to get as much x-y phys dmg as you can in both jewels and jewelry.

    *As you can see, the setup is a bit low on resists. That you can easily fix with jewels/jewelry.

    *Unique items have rolls. Obviously this means bad rolls are cheaper than good rolls. For simplicity's sake, I've added the best roll for a lot of the gear. Your goal is to try to buy the best, cheapest roll you can find.

    *Don't worry too much about buying perfect rolled items. 99% of the time you won't be able to tell the difference in-game.

    Good job on this build! Funnest build I've played in a long time!

    This build works as advertised! I wish I'd found this at the start of Harbinger, this guide under-promises and over-delivers. I started smiling at about level 40 and have not stopped since. Rolling through labs at a disgustingly low level...no problem. The Bloodseeker claw is like Vaal Pact on steroids, I can't believe I'd never heard of it until this build. I'm leveling with Arctic Armor & Warlord's Mark/Blasphemy. Mapping feels fun again, no longer a grind. I often complete a map and realize the boss is dead and I've forgotten to swap Inc AOE for Conc, but I melted them anyway. I'm not sure how I'm going to play a build without Whirling Blades ever again.

    +1 For this build. It's very well designed.

    PROS:
    -Cheap. Everything can be bought for 1-2c besides Jewelry/Chest/Jewels
    -High DMG ~1mil DPS in PoB -Against Guardians/Shaper around 600k.
    -Decent clearspeed and able to do most maps (Phys reflect sucks, but is possible with Pantheon)
    -Survivability - Can tank almost all hits and instantly leech back thanks to our claw.

    -NOT VAAL PACT

    I like this build a lot - you essentially get Vaal Pact without the penalty of no regeneration...

    For me, this is a great budget build/league-starter, able to kill any boss in the game with little investment. Moreover, if you don't care about clear speed, this build is the only build you will need - it will do everything for you.

    Clear speed with this build is fair - not great definitely - but not terrible either.

    Running the tankier version of this build right now and it's simply amazing.

    My gear isn't worth much more than 1 ex total (besides flasks which don't matter much in long guardian fights) and I was able to basically face tank guardians deathless. This build really does have everything a build would ever need.

    It's budget, a starter version through red maps would be very, very cheap. It has room to grow into high gear levels with flasks and 6L belly, etc.

    It's got all the benefits of vaal pact without the downside of losing Regen or spending the points to get over there.

    You can get an insane HP pool, 8k very reasonably by level 90 even without belly, while still doing the damage to reasonably do shaper and guardians. One hit instantly puts you to full life as well in any boss fight situation.

    Plus, a high attack speed build with whirling blades gives insane mobility for both distance traversing maps and dodging stuff in boss fights.

    Honestly my biggest problem with the build is that I can't find enough things to waste currency on to make it better. It scales way too well off of cheap stuff to the point where you can't really reasonably spend more than 10 ex on it.

    Thanks for the great build!

    I'll be honest. This is probably going to be my last build. I see no point in doing others after a lot of waffing around with RF builds, magma orb builds, summoners and etc.

    It's 'melee', but hits the whole screen with increased radius (I actually prefer added fire damage as a middle ground between increased radius (no damage, and I feel the radius is large enough alone) and concentrated effect (big damage boost, but makes the radius uncomfortably tiny)), it's tanky as fuck with 8k HP and pseudo-vaal pact -and- it does a really nice damage. The pseudo-vaal pact is fucking amazing! I have no idea how I never saw that claw rear up its head until you put together this cheapo hipster uniques build.

    Using your tanky PoB build and turning off all flasks and Vaal Haste it still puts the damage in the 400k-ish boosting up to close to 800k with only the cheapo flasks (screw 150c for Sin's Rebirth :p) and Vall Haste on. This is not counting using Vaal lightning trap.


    Good job man, very good job

    Been leveling this character as this League I actually want to attempt and get Shaper down and have a sort-of boss killing build that doesn't require too much investment (like Ele-Crit).

    Got to Lv. 70 and did Uber Lab 3 keys with very minimal gear, 5l chest was the most expensive piece at 3c. I'd definitely recommend this build right now.

    Got an update for those following.

    Found an Abyssus already enchanted:

    Abyssus
    Ezomyte Burgonet
    Click to expand
  • +23 to all Attributes
  • Adds 40 to 60 Physical Damage to Attacks
  • +206% to Melee Critical Strike Multiplier
  • 102% increased Armour
  • 43% increased Physical Damage taken
  • When you have slain all of your enemies,

    what is left to fear?



    Here are the numbers with it:

    Shocked mobs


    Non-shocked mobs


    This of course makes you squishier, so I tested and I let some bears slap me and the boss slam me in a T14 Springs; seems fine... You could go with a Lightning Coil to off-set the additional phys dmg taken, but then you'd lose about the same DPS as putting on Devoto's, so if you're gonna go all DPS, go all DPS!! ;)

    BUT! I'll definitely still wear Devoto's for Uber:

    Devoto's Devotion
    Nightmare Bascinet
    Click to expand
  • +57 to Dexterity
  • 10% reduced Global Physical Damage
  • 16% increased Attack Speed
  • 179% increased Armour and Evasion
  • +15% to Chaos Resistance
  • 20% increased Movement Speed
  • Mercury Footprints
  • Swift as thought are the actions of Man

    when borne on wings of divine providence.



    And speaking of Uber, here's an updated run now that I'm more comfortable with the build.

    Uber Lab: ~9 Minutes/10 Rooms/4 Keys/Death's Drop

    Another update, pushing DPS even higher...

    A friend told me about his Spell Totem + Wither setup.

    So, I gave it a shot:

    Abyssus
    Ezomyte Burgonet
    Click to expand
  • +23 to all Attributes
  • Adds 40 to 60 Physical Damage to Attacks
  • +206% to Melee Critical Strike Multiplier
  • 102% increased Armour
  • 43% increased Physical Damage taken
  • When you have slain all of your enemies,

    what is left to fear?



    and here are the results in PoB with Wither at 20 stacks:

    Shocked mobs


    Claw setup is now this:

    The Scourge
    Terror Claw
    Click to expand
  • 2% of Physical Attack Damage Leeched as Life
  • 10% Chance to Trigger Level 18 Summon Spectral Wolf on Kill
  • Adds 49 to 123 Physical Damage
  • 10% increased Attack Speed
  • Minions have 14% increased Attack Speed
  • Increases and Reductions to Minion Damage also affect you
  • Minions deal 70% increased Damage if you've Hit Recently
  • With increasing mastery over death

    comes an increasing desire for it.

    I updated the leveling section with the gear, skills and what you should look for in your tree as you level.

    BUT! I'm sorry, a play-by-play tree is too much hand-holding for my taste.

    Also, I did not level this character strictly for this build, I respec into it from my A. Warchief builds.

    If the info I provided is not enough for you, pick the leveling guide from any other build out there. It's not really a big concern how you level.

    Hey guys, here's a couple of fun runs I just recorded with some cool mods:






    Courtyard T15 - 2xBeyond/Breach/Onslaught/6mobs left/9min

    Overgrown Ruins T15 - Beyond/Breach/Onslaught/Trial/16mobs left/9min

    I'm running with Item Rarity instead of Conc./AoE btw.

    This is such a fun build to play! So fast... I love blitzing packs and popping them before they even get a shot off!
