- Proper image for my build
Vitality pure melee usually is under presented in end game builds. Usually vitality casters have tons of sustain but melee are glassy despite their AdctH and also as melee you take damage with your head. So my tries at vitality melee fails miserably. Not here though thanks to few guys, especially @sir_spanksalot but also @mad_lee and @Valinov - big credit to them. Their proposals makes me complete Gladiator without constantly dying. And yes Decay made the difference
- Fully buffed with Soul Harvest, Blood Pact and Dying God active

Build have massive flat damage from Savagery, also 94% WPS with dual Necro skills, also Dual Seal of Void and medal. RR is staggering as well -153% stack able RR and flat from Revenant, OA is decent, especially in Crucible, also good speed and AS procs, great crit damage for melee build.
30% AdctH, MoT, OK armor and physical resistance, Damage Reduction from Decay and health potions on CD
If you are dying siphon points from Storm Touched to Wendigo.
Other than Set picked some standard and non items:
Relic - Deathchill, brilliant idea Spanks. It have massive flat damage!
Weapons - Dual Decree of Malmouth. Yes, they don’t have attack speed , flat vitality and such. But they have +1 to both mastery, OA, and can fully convert all elemental damage. So fully vitality Soul Harvest, Savagery and relic. Pure melee weapons suck.
Medal - Direwolf is better here than Korvaak. Massive OA and yes racial to Kuba and Reaper. Especially important against Kuba, cause he, she or it is crazy resistant to vitality.
Boots - Slow&skill bonuses.
Pants&Belt - The green connection. In between the two items, only one rare affix is used- Kings on pants. Belt is nice, cause converts chaos from WPS, DG last node and gloves component to vitality. Pants have +skills to Blood Pact and Soul Harvest.
Rings - actually advise by Spanks to select Cursebearer over Fallen. Fallen have better damage but Cursebearer is better defensively.
Gloves - Awkward choice, but +2 to Savagery, AS, Elemental resistance and DA are all nice stats.
Build is pure glass canon, you can smack everything but health is moving up and down constantly. Anyway with Decay and Black tallow in medal was able to find rhythm. So with this configuration managed to finish 6 out of 7 runs, although have pretty often close calls. For comparing I finished in my original version just 1 out of 4. So small differences makes big differences!
Times are little slower than original concept. They vary fro 6:25 to 7:15 depending on mutators/Nemesis.
Watch out for Grava, he’s the worst for some reason, also disruptors are nasty. Kuba is easy at 154, can create problems in 170. Easiest Nemesis is Reaper, I like how quickly he dies.
So video from Crucible 6:24!
And here’s excellent run by @romanN1 of 5:45!
