Guide

This is my 1st build I am making to show to the world so don't be hating, give some good advice if you want. I am showing this build to you people because I love this build. At the time of me writing this guide, I am at level 40 and have 1190.7 DPS with a HS skill. The other reason why is I was able to beat 3 people by myself in a PVP dual when all of us were level 39 (they were a dual strike dagger shadow, Rain of arrows ranger and a scion summoner) with me being able to one shot the scion and ranger with my HS.

Enough about why I made the build, let's talk about the build. I use 4 skills at this time of me making this (I will be updating this build as I move along the build), those skills are Heavy Strike the main attack, Sweep the secondary attack but still tied and the way to mainly stay alive inside mob groups, Leap Slam to get inside mob groups and sweep them to death and just to get around faster, and finally Warlord's Mark which I use rarely and only in times where I feel like i may die if I rush into the battle like this build will be doing a lot. Don't worry about buying the gems by act 1 cruel Mercy Mission.

The Heavy Strike skill is mainly for the enemy's that are rare, unique, or have the high life mod. So charge or in this case leap and kill the rare before it's aura (if it has one) makes all the monsters around you meet your maker. If you can't kill the rare because of so many monsters around it use your aoe skill Sweep, which does lots of damage and kills almost any white mob in one hit which will give you tons of your life back if you hit lots of monsters in each of your hits. If you can't kill them all and you need some time to step back and drink some flasks use Leap Slam to get out and heal than Leap Slam right back in and kill them all, if they are some how not dieing you need better gear or you need to kill the no death to allies totem hidden in the mass of monsters.

You can always choose other skills to use, but these I think are best for just clearing house. And suit my style best. If you want to add any support gems to the attack ones go ahead, most people only use these builds as a starting theme and make them different in small ways for better or for worse.

You can get blood magic if you want, I like to not use my health for skills so I can use my skills as much as I want without the risk of me spamming too much and dieing. If you are still here and reading this, I thank you for reading this whole long build guide, and I wish you the best on your journey through Wraeclast!

I really like the look of this build, I think I'll make my next char on this although the link for your passive skill tree doesn't seem to load your build.
Otherwise everything is really simple and yet looks and sounds effective
