Forum Index Marauder [3.7] Dessher's High-Speed Chain Hook Berserker - Every Skill Gem can be good!

History

My Idea with this build was to make my first "Movement Skill" based build, and see how good it can be with that. The results so far are, it's good and incredible fast. (because you go just with physical damage here, every Melee Skill can be used.)

    Start with every Melee which you favor, and start using Chain Hook on lvl 12.
    Combine it with with Ruthless and Maim, as long you dont have Brutality, you can use Elemental Damage.

    Get Herald of Purity and Blood Rage at lvl 16

    Get Dread Banner at lvl 24

    Get Vaal Ancestral Warchief and Bladestorm (if you like to) at 28

    On lvl 31 you can take Pulverise and either Brutality or Impale, I would recommend to take Brutality and safe Impale for the 6L

    Pick Berserk on 34

    At lvl 38 pick Cast when Damage Taken, Molten Shell and Summon Ice Golem

    When you have enough Mana and no Mana problems, take Punishment with Blasphemy for 25% more phys. damage

    I'm doing a similar build but went with dual maces and resolute technique fun stuff just beat all the elder guardians and pushing shaper once I have the fragments. Have you tested ruthless support? It's insane with all the attack speed and if you can get maim on your chest or put maim on totem you can make room for it I also prefer fortify on my leap slam so I can run pulverize in my chain hook for huge aoe buff.

    I already had tried pulverize on it and the one problem, with that was at the beginning, the AoE buff and less speed debuff were there but no effect on the area damage. I will try it so maybe its better now.

    And with your idea on ruthless no I didnt try it, but I will check it out :)

    Pulverize is crazy for clearing.

    Check out my character Yerfuct - a pretty optimized Bleed/Impale Chain Hook build.

    For the main 6-link I use CH-Multistrike-Impale-Fortify-Melee Phys-Rage


    I swap Pulverize in for Rage sometimes for clear and the difference is very apparent. I've also just recently tried Flicker for clearing and it's outrageously better (obviously) and all I did was swap a few gems.

    Check it, maybe you can get some good ideas to optimize your build a bit.

    Thanks I will look into that, but is Multistrike really needed?

    And the clear is really good just, that on big packs not all enemies die at once , because of my small AoE at the time, but I will work on it.

    Oh, I am sorry, I did know about that part with the first and second repeat, just thought about the attack speed, thats interesting, but that just is good for single-target I would say, cause I dont even would get to hit an enemy more than 2 times, bacause its already dead, so I understand it just for boss fights.

    It should never leave your 6-link.
