Gearing

  • Full Marauder armor & trinkets
  • Runes of Vampirism
  • Marauder Greatsword Strength/Accuracy

Variants

Marauder can be replaced by Berserker or Knight, though knight will perform considerably worse.

Keep your sigils the same on this one, as crit is very important and strength is a must due to MMR synergies.

Arms can be traded for Tactics (more sustain, slightly more active) or Discipline (more DPS, much more active).

Eternal Champion can be taken for more passsive defense but is a very large DPS loss.

Defense can be traited for much more passive defense, and may be recommended if you find yourself struggling with the base build.
