The beauty of EQ is it's not hipster, therefore the enchant isn't ridiculous. For a currency poor player who has little time to play, would I be better off getting a 500 pdps axe and the helmet enchant for roughly 60c, or completely hold out to save 2 ex for atziris axe? Of course I know the axe would be the biggest upgrade, but I'm looking at the realistic opportunity costs here since delve has skyrocketed ex:c ratios (last I checked). Thanks


Go for the Disfavour, for real its such a great weapon for this build, you wont regret the 2ex investment.


Just got it, and yeah.... It's sweet! Only a 592pdps nicer than what I was rolling. Also, with the blood rage/IC setup I seem to be able to literally stand in traps. Awesome god damn build man!


Glad you enjoy mate!

Hey, I followed your build till level 92 so far and having lots of fun running lab, delve and maps.
Currently Iam trying to upgrade my gear and want to discuss the usefulness of the jewel "the red nightmare".
In my case i would need to change my passive tree in a way, where i would loose 2 jewel sockets. In addition i would loose one more current jewel because of the replacement with the red nightmare. Leaving me with 4 instead of 6 jewel sockets in the passive tree. The jewels I would put out are stattet with +attack speed, +%life and +% area dmg. Path of building calculated a drop in EQ DPS from 146 k to 126 k and a decrease in life from 7 k to 6,6 k.
To my question: Overweight the additional block and the endurance charges the loss of 400 hp and 20k damage?

Thanks in advance! (:


Red Nightmare is not needed in any way. Its just QoL in some cases. If you dont want to sacrifice your damage and hp just leave it.

Red Nightmare is not required, as i said in the guide.

You know these builds are bad when the guy who made them isn't playing the build.


Don't waste your time on this, unless you wanna start out and then reroll.


Sorry, but i dont play this build every league. I think its a well written guide, i dont see any reason to not play this build.

Can someone explain the mechanic's of why the 'less duration' enchant for EQ is better than the 'increased damage'?

I need a new tanky build, to take a break with when I die a lose my progress towards 90 again. :-(

Earthquake: Smashes the ground with an Axe, Mace or Staff, dealing damage in an area and cracking the earth. The crack will erupt in a powerful aftershock after a short duration. Earthquakes created before the first one has erupted will not generate their own aftershocks.

So if your earthquake duration is lower then your attack time then each earthquake hit will generate powerfull aftersock.

    Works like a miracle. I like how versatile the build is. I changed to consecrated path after I cleared all the red maps and it's still rolling like a thunder!
