I tested this build as a starting point of a new ladder. Want to present below my achievements.
I can honestly recommend this build for start.
As you can't see, I still wearing all T4 items, only my weapon is Nih runeword in a sacred balanced axe.
In this build, I use as main wolf stance
. I have not tested lion stance because of huge -%phy res, which I think could hit me into a lot.
I'm quite easy to farm duncraig and TA. It's not speedrun but it allows me to collect some good SU's.
Sometimes, despite 200k+ def I need only 3 hits to be killed. a HUGE help is life stolen!
with my 41% I'm passing like a tank.
In the early stages of the game you need to have some skillful hands. To 90~ lvl there are problems with mana. Mana stolen in weapon help here a lot.
The biggest problem is a single target dmg - bosses, build is better suited to farm. (maybe it would be better if I gain stronger gear and change to lion stance).
Overall, I recommend it.
