I've been liking Frost Blades, but when I tried Lightning strike that thing just looks so amazing. I would like to do this as Berserker since I want to be able to move fast around. So should I just take Frost Blades PoB and choose Zerker and just swap the gear to what you're using with Champion? Though it seems hit chance will be at 84% if I go Zerker so would have to fix that.

What are the differences between Champion and Berserker?

If you wanna go Zerk, grab Precision. If you need more, there are plenty of Accuracy nodes we path by in the tree that you can grab.

Wouldn't swords would be better than claws for this build ?

hi!, i wanted to say thanks for the build first before everything else.

I wanted to ask you if i feel like playing only frost blades(personally i love the skill above all other melee/clearing speed), would you recommend going 2x fight for survival with corrupts like 5% damage increased or 10% critical strike chance instead of other 2 jewels.

Lastly if i go champion what do you think about getting the fortify ascendancy and getting another support skill instead of fortify support?.

Thanks in advance!.

This is a game of end-less variation, options and choice. From the claw perspective I could say there is no sword that provides Instant Life Leech, so Claws are better; so you can see how it's pretty impossible to quantify what is best or not.

Which is the better build? The one 1-shotting a whole Legion Army in Glacier? The one killing Shaper during first phase? The one doing Uber Elder Deathless at lvl 36? The one delving solo to 1000+? The one competing in Uber Lab Daily Ladder? etc... Each entirely different from each other, and still sharing a lot of things in common. What's best or better is really determined by the measuring stick you use.

You wanna use swords, then use swords and figure out the tree that goes for it, but whatever you go with my suggestion is you get the notion of "better/best" out of your head when it comes to this game.

If you pay close attention you'll see the latest variant of LS is using Grelwood + Beltimber Swords. Again, just a different route, not a "better" or "best" choice.

You're welcome! ;)

Fight For Survival is good, but optimizing the Melee aspect of either LS or FB is IMO (after a lot of testing) a waste, so all you're getting is 25% Projectile speed, which is nice, but is it worth giving up 7% life and other stats? I don't think so.

Also, in my latest setup I'm running Vaal Impurity of Ice, which I recommend and makes it so that mobs have no elemental resistances at all, so the Cold Pen from FFS would be further wasted. Even without VII, I run CWDT + Frost Bomb + Wave of Conviction (Cold), so Cold Pen. is more than covered.

My suggestion is this, if you're running small area maps like T2 Alleyways, go with FB; if you're running large area maps like T2 Glacier, go with LS. Remember you can literally swap one gem to the other with the exact same links, so I would suggest forgoing Fight For Survival which will lock you to just FB.

Lastly, IMO it's a waste of Ascendancy points to just get Fortify. Add it to your movement skill instead. Could you make it work? Absolutely! Just swap Inspirational to Fortify. Won't make or break the build.

Thanks! Glad it's doing right by you :)

I tried to check your toon to see what you had, but you have Characters hidden, so no way for me to recommend upgrades.

Although 30EX is not enough for it, have you seen my new LS/FB Slayer variant with Headhunter + 3 x Inspired Learnings?
