Blademaster is one of classical classes in the game. It have traditions in dual melee and dealing piece damage. Usually your bread and butter is Belgo set. Also nice setup was posted by x1 using SR set. But I want to try idea without any set support. Technically I use one set piece, the chest. Also usually the goal is to empower Nightblade WPS , but here I want max Cadence and DM to see the damage.

OK, so managed to reach 25 Cadence and 22 DM. Also use Ravager gaze, dual Reaver. Actually with extra piercing from amulet is option to use weapon with lower AP, but decide not to try the blue Axe, that is reaking of nerf. Relic is Serenity, +1 all skills and circuit breaker proc.I am not fond of pierce relic for some reason. Maybe Doom is possible, due to bonus to Soldier. Pants are ugly, but +3 to Deadly momentum is to big of bonus to pass.
Devotions, sadly don’t have much procers to utilize offensive setup. Anyway went with Oleron, Azraaka and Ulzaad. No place for Ghoul, which is unfortunate.
Without Ghoul, build is little bit weird. Health bar is not moving most of the time, but when it does you are close to death. Deaths on higher waves blew my good time runs sadly, so 169 or 170 is better to use Aether cluster and save yourself from big damage numbers.
Toughest nemesis is Grava for some reason, Kaisan isn’t problem on 154, but can create additional problems in 170. Of course 169 is hardest wave other than nemesis spawns.
After I died in my faster run, here’s miserable 7/05 run,it should be 15-20 seconds faster by me, it has potential probably with better piloting to go 6.25 or so.

DW Blademaster is cool concept, it deals damage and is cult classic. That build shows the versatility of the class. It’s not the best Crucible build, but not bad either.
