[1.1.2.4] 2H Forcewave Physical Warlord

Introduction

Earlier today there was discussion about physical Forcewave build,I saw there is no Warlord posted,so decide to use the impulse to create it.Unlike some builds,which are carefully theorycrafted and tested with different variations,this is more of a instant decision.The build is open for discussion ,any feedback is welcomed.

Build


permanent buffs

GT link >>>https://www.grimtools.com/calc/a2E15gn2 <<<

That’s core version,which is balanced.Weapon is Stonefist Rebuke,which is superb for the job,with good rolls it’s easy to cap cast speed.Two parts of Octavius for set bonus,Judicator rings are very good,especially in Crucible.Peerless eye +1 to all skills,OA,crit.Barbaros and there wonderfullproc,Doom is good relic,Oleron belt,Eartshatter boots,just totally normal items for physical/trauma WL

Crucible change++s-I will go with Divine Mandate instead of Oleron-OA is pointless,with Harp,buffs and banner you will go over 4.1k,which feels like a waste.The build have potential probably to go around 6.30 with good piloting(not by me)

SR changes-probably more defense in order not to get killed.Also more solid overcap to resistances.Green Aleks pants are suitable.

Leveling

Two ways to do it,both are easy.

1.Start with Soldier and use Tremor from beginning.Look for 2h with cast speed or use 1h+shield.Later in act 6 you can get Mutant Bludgeon
2.Start with OK,level with 1h+shield.Aegis+Vire and later Guardians,Mandate
is bonus,when you rushed end of the mastery bar

Final
I don’t record videos,if anyone is interested please share.I think with good piloting and polishing it could be superb build

Reserved,just in case

do yuo test it?

maybe u should pick ForceWave to Azrakaa
and Guardians to Assassin’s Mark ?

How exactly is working the proc? But if is a modifier only to Guardians,outside of the debuff is a waste and I should reverse it.

Nice one, looks almost identical to the one I theorycrafted prior to FG release

guardians is pets
and whey proc Azrakaa very very bad
not each hit

but Assassin’s Mark they can proc every hit with nice OA
you build have a lot of OA
thats why i pick devotions with 100% chans on crit to pets (Guardians)
it is mechanic of GD

where is a button Pets to Atack
use it to direct Guardians

Thanks!I just saw your build now,looks really close,except you picked Blade Arc,while my focus in mainly on FW.

Thanks for the info,now it’s correct in GT.

They do have a 20% chance upon hitting a target. One guardian = 20%, two 36%, aura 48.8%. Or in other words, each guardian has 20% chance to proc it, and another 20% each Celestial Presence tick.

then show us how good guardians can proc Azrakaa

They don’t. Guardian hit only once per sec. Azraaka has 0.5s CD and not have 100% proc chance. They will not procced consistently. Also I never see the aura can proc devo. I take the point off its aura on my deathmarked Dervish because apparently it’s useless for proccing devo.

Bound GoE to assassin’s blade and forcewave to azraaka are the way to go.

i say the same in the 3-d post :smiley:

And I already said,that GT link is now corrected :smiley:

BTW, forcewave phys warlord seems interesting and can potentially become really powerfull. I can’t see your devo right now. Did you try meteor shower?

What’s always lacking from phys build is additional damaging proc. Plus forcewave need a lot of proc to support it.

I haven’t.Again unlike most of my build is morе of a whimsy.My current devotions features Azraaka and Ulzaad,but very few red&greens.

I think they hit faster than that, plus there are two of them.

True, their aura do not seem to trigger devo procs

Crucible run results:

6:24 run video

Did 3 runs with Divine mandate and times were about the same if not slightly worse. One of the runs even went over 7mins. You’d think the extra crit damage would help but apparently not :undecided:

Solid, safe and consistent build for crucible farming. Last phys forcewave build i tried (1.0.4.1/1.0.5.1) had a 8-9min clear time. This is a pretty significant step up

Nicely done :slight_smile:

Why Warlord? As for me, Withchblade is still better there. You get extra poison & physical resist, and isnt forced to spend so many skillpoints…

I would try something in this way. Phys Warlord depends on Ulzaad and Ascension. Also I like Aeons very much:rolleyes:
