- when a meme outperforms legitimate two-handed sets like Avenger

This is going to be a short guide. This build was born as a kind of a joke during some random banter at @Safarel discord. After some tweaking and testing I decided to post it since build proved to be relatively strong and there are very few decent 2handed builds around anyway.
<<<< GRIMTOOLS >>>>
To make meme-concept into a working and consistent build I decided to use Shattered Guardian set and Winter King’s sword. Iskandra’s relic was used for two reasons: great elemental build support and cost reduction, since Blade Arc spam is very energy hungry. Slithscale pants were chosen over Barbaros for Aether resistance (which build was lacking), Beasts damage and a high cunning roll which synergizes with build’s huge Cunning stat dump.
In Crucible try and herd as much mobs together as possible to maximize your damage output, including Nemesis waves. I’ve made about 20 testing runs at 150-170 and never died, build felt almost immortal, but still, be mindful of debuffs and use your two teleportation skills generously.
In Shattered Realm some boss chunks will be much harder than the others and will require some kiting, especially once with Grava’Thul. Build can farm 65-66 consistently, but prepare to die sometimes. 75-76 is possible with some luck with boss combos but I wouldn’t recommend it.

Thanks to @Firozo and his never ending search for all kinds of meme builds that inspired me to do this build.
