Sigma 1.4 - Gunnhild
The build was known for some years, i've played it about 10 times so far , but it never had the mid/end game gearing possibilities that are now available , which are capable of turning her from "just a meme build" to a build that can do most ubers and farm most spots with ease .

The build is based on the benefits of Lioness , which is boosting the damage and defense , regardless of what kind of melee weapon you have in your hands

Since many of you out there have insisted recently for me to have this streamed again and posting the build, i'm going to give it another go , and this time i will post all the necessary info and vids. Stay tooned

Early Game (before 120)

Skillplan

Before level 90: Smax Lioness (core of the build) , max Wild&Free for more speed and FHR , max Balance for more base defense , 1-pointer Fire elementals (because you are not a summoner and can do fine without them), 1-pointer Defensive Harmony (the extra slow is not necessary at this stage of the game)

*Invest all your extra points into the spear tree skills (no matter where) , as they will increase the max level of Lioness (1 max skill level to Lioness per 2 points invested in the other spear skills ) , allowing you to make Lioness stronger

After level 90: Smax Lioness as described above , max Wild&free and Balance , 1-pointer Fire elementals and Defensive Harmony , max Paragon for more vitality per gem , max Spellbind to reduce it's timer (it is also a sinergy for the fire elementals)

Q: Why not use Curare as soon as you get to level 90 ?
A: Because you are not tanky enough yet to ditch the benefits of Paragon

Gameplay

before level 90 :
- buff with Bloodlust and get the Fire elementals out if necessary to provide some distraction
- use Iron spiral to smash your opponents

after level 90:
- buff with Bloodlust and get the Fire elementals out if necessary
- use Spellbind to debuff your enemies and kill them with Iron spiral

Stats alocation :
Strength - all you can get
Dexterity - enough for a decent chance to hit
Vitality - 0
Energy - 0

no , it was never to be used up to end game . it's just until finishing the 115 ubers . starting with 120 , the main attack becomes something else , Retaliate (most probably) , but there are 2-3 other valid options too .

before Retaliate (and a few others) were available , those sword zon builds were orientated towards Charged strike in previous Sigma patches .

for mid game , Retaliate is imo the best option available , as it provides the most damage output , good AoE and providing a safe farming option

as i wrote in the first post , the build is far from being new , just that the main attacks have changed over the years
