Build overview



Boss DPS:



The Endurance-stacking archetype wasn't popular until the Affliction League which introduced the Consecrated Path of Endurance Skill. It's a Consecrated Path that grows in size and damage with your Endurance Charges. In turn, it has a 2-second Cooldown which can be bypassed by spending one Endurance Charge. This skill will suit a build that can quickly generate a lot of these Charges back. It's similar to Flicker Strike in this regard, it just consumes a different type of Charge. We've selected Juggernaut for this role due to the Unflinching passive that generates a lot of Endurance Charges quickly. Additionally, you will gain them with Enduring Cry, Endurance Charge on Melee Stun Support Gem, Unyielding, and Replica Farrul's Fur, the last one being optional - you should have more than enough of these Charges for your Attack Speed is low. Consecrated Path is a Slam Attack which allows us to expand on some Slam-specific gimmicks which are often tied to Warcries cause of their low base Attack Speed. We've decided to implement four Warcries and Echoes of Creation Helmet to gain even more Damage, especially with Exerted Attacks. The Area of Effect combined with extremely high Hit Damage makes the Attack Speed redundant for clearing. The downside of such a playstyle, that often discourages players, is the overabundance of buttons to press. We tried to mitigate this issue with possible Gem swaps and upgrades to automate some of the Skills. 

The Attack has a built-in 50% Physical-to-Fire Damage Conversion, so the most sound approach is to convert the remaining 50% to Fire with Avatar of Fire and invest in Fire Penetration. Fire Exposure should be applied with Gloves, and Scorch - with Boots. Get the Flammability Curse and passives like Lava Lash, Galvanic Hammer, and Divine Fury for some more Penetration. The bulk of the damage comes from a Weapon, Support Gems, Precise Technique, and Endurance Charges which also provide you with Elemental Resistances and Physical Damage Reduction. Aim for 10 or 11 Endurance Charges in total, it will make the build very tanky. As a Juggernaut, you're already predisposed to withstand a lot of Damage of all types. It specializes in Armour, but the Elemental Damage is also not a huge issue with its Unbreakable Passive that applies a portion of Armour to Elemental Resistances. Add to that Defiance of Destiny Amulet and The Brass Dome or The Fourth Vow Body Armour to make the character more tanky. The additional Fortify Buff with high Life Regeneration make one of the most durable builds for its price.

1. Gameplay

For mapping attack with Consecrated Path. To generate Endurance Charges use Enduring Cry. For more Damage, use Seismic Cry, Infernal Cry, Intimidating Cry. and place Ancestral Totems. Flammability should be applied with Hextouch, Corrupted Gloves' Implicit, or cast manually. Molten Shell and Blood Rage can be liked with CwDT - you will undoubtedly take a lot of damage to activate these Skills, your Evasion is non-existent. For Mana-reserving Skills use Determination, Precision, Herald of Ash, and Vitality. Blood and Sand can be used too if you can afford it.

6. Gear Setup

It's a simple Melee Build that sources its power from Endurance Charges. The weapon is however still the most important part of an Attack Build and you will need one with high Physical DPS, later converted to Fire. You can start with a cheap Tidebreaker, it perfectly fits this build. Boots and Rings is where you can get additional Maximum Endurance Charges. Replica Farrul's Fur Body Armour can supply you with them which is very important, as the Consecrated Path of Endurance will spend one Endurance Charge to bypass its Cooldown, much like Flicker Strike does with Frenzy Charges. You will also gain Endurance Charges with Enduring Cry, Endurance Charge on Melee Stun Support Gem, and Ascendancy Passives. We have also included the Echoes of Creation Helmet that's good if you use multiple Warcries. You may not like pressing that many buttons, so if that's not your thing use a regular Rare Helmet instead with fewer Warcries. There are other Unique Items that you can use, such as Corrupted Death's Door, Precursor Emblems, and Defiance of Destiny. Aim to have more Accuracy than Maximum Life to benefit from Precise Technique. It's a league starter and it's possible to make the build work with very inexpensive items like Kaom's Sign Ring and makeshift Rare Items to then slowly progress to something more pricey as we have shown.
