Build Overview

This is a very powerful and enjoyable melee build based on the Warpath spell. It's an AoE attack skill that damages all nearby enemies with greatly increased Attack Speed. It bears resemblance to Diablo's Whirlwind and Path of Exile's Cyclone. Warpath provides great AoE and clear speed, and at the same time, it's one of the most enjoyable skills to play. It's also very straight-forward as all you need to do is spin through enemies. All the other skills are used for both offensive and defensive buffs they provide, with the exception of Lunge, which also increases your mobility by allowing you to instantly teleport to the next pack of monsters.

This build also offers amazing diversity, as you can easily respec Passives on your skills if you feel like you need more defenses or simply want to alter your playstyle.

Void Knight Skill Tree (5 Points)

Notable Passives:

  1. Abyssal EnduranceAbyssal Endurance - grants extra Life and Void Resistance - we just need 5 Points in here to unlock the Volatile Reversal Skill, and this just happens to be the most beneficial Passive for you

Forge Guard Skill Tree (48 Points)

Notable Passives:

  1. Weapons MasterWeapons Master - grants bonus Strength and Melee Damage
  2. Fresh from the ForgeFresh from the Forge - periodically grants very high bonus Fire and Physical damage to your attacks
  3. Champion of the ForgeChampion of the Forge - greatly increases your damage with Two-Handed weapons
  4. MightMight - grants bonus Strength and Armor. Extremely valuable Passive since we want to stack Strength to scale our damage and Armor (on top of the base effect) and to unlock the Crit. Chance and Multiplier on this Passive Tree

Forge Guard's Tree offers a wide diversity in what type of damage you want to use. It's mainly oriented on offensive Passives. We have personally decided to go full DPS here, skipping most of the defensive Passives. It was also one of our goals to increase this builds' Critical attributes which has the highest end-game potential


Paladin Skill Tree (15 Points)

Notable Passives:

  1. ConvictionConviction - grants very high bonus DPS by adding extra Fire and Physical Damage to your Attacks as well as increasing your Fire and Physical Penetration

You need to get 15 Points in the Paladin Tree to unlock the Sigils of Hope Skill which Passively adds insane defense and DPS bonuses. It's one of the best Utility Skill for this class

 

Skills

Warpath

Warpath - you spin rapidly, damaging all nearby enemies. It's your primary DPS attack which will obliterate everything on your path. With the Passives chosen, it will grant very high defensive bonuses, but if you feel like you want more damage you can follow the top-left path and grab Precise Spin and Deep Strikes to increases your Critical Strike Chance and Multiplier even further

Warpath

Lunge

Lunge - movement skill which increases your mobility by instantly teleporting to a nearby enemy. It also grants various defensive bonuses for a brief duration after you Lunge

Lunge

Rebuke

Rebuke - channeled attack which deals very high damage on release, however, we use it mainly for the bonuses it provides. Simply channel it for a second, release, and enjoy extra Health & Mana Regeneration, Armor, Elemental Resistances, and Speed bonuses

Rebuke

Sigils of Hope

Sigils of Hope - extremely useful spell which passively grants high DPS, Health Regeneration, and Armor bonuses. You aim to increase its' effect on your character and duration so that you can don't have to constantly recast it

Sigils of Hope

Volatile Reversal

Volatile Reversal - you travel back in time restoring your Health and Mana. You can use it in emergency situations (obviously) or at any given time to give you amazing utility bonuses including greatly increased Attack and Movement Speed

Volatile Reversal

 

Items

Stat priority:

This build utilizes both Fire and Physical Damage, making it easier to obtain powerful end-game equipment. Our damage and Armor also scales with each point of Strength, making it the primary stat we want on our equipment. For the defenses, just grab extra Health, Health Leech, and Armor.

  1. Strength
  2. Fire Damage
  3. Physical Damage
  4. Health
  5. Armor
  6. Health Leech

Recommended Unique Items:

The Last Laugh

The Last Laugh - which has very high base Physical Damage, and grants high bonuses towards Crit. Chance and Multiplier. It also instantly kills enemies on low Health

Volcanus

Volcanus - a perfect fit for this build. It has high base Physical Damage and grants added Fire Damage to Attacks. It also grants very high Health Leech based on Fire Damage dealt

Prism Wraps

Prism Wraps - grants 30% increased Damage, extra Leech, and reduces Elemental Damage you take. One of the best items for this build but sadly it lacks Health and Protection bonuses
