Just wanted to share with you guys a spec which is a bit of an oddity but actually works surprisingly well. I don’t play crucible but this guy reliably farms sr 65-66 and most the time with 0 deaths even with DA mutator debuff. I haven’t tested him in sr 75 yet but i think its doable with good piloting and depending on mutators The spec is fun to play but can feel a bit piano for melee sometimes (at least for me because im old)
EDIT: SR75-76 completed multiple times, obviously occasional deaths depending on boss combos and mutators but its really quite reliable. Helps to use DA/OA pots if you get DA mutator. Ugdensalve and royal jelly essence if you get -HP mutator.
Sheet dps shown is with deadly aim, soul harvest and dying god up. Helm crafted for stun resist.
The key with this spec is debuffing large groups of enemies with word of pain, which has all as many points as possible in all its nodes. It clears trash incredibly fast. Start by debuffing with word of pain then keep your soul harvest buff up. Charge through packs of mobs with Amatoks Breath which is fully converted to vitality and vitality decay. Use pet attack command when needed. Ill omen is kept on CD against powerful enemies and inquisitor seal is indispensable when fighting large packs or standing in aoe’s whilst facetanking stuff. Mark of torment is there as an oh shit button.
This spec is scrambling to get attack speed, i get it from as many sources as possible. Dread skull in medal, shattered soul in chest, seal of annihilation, consecrated wrappings and from devotions such as okain’s lantern and spider. The result is 175% attack speed with good rolls, which goes up to about 185% during dying god proc. I tested with different gloves for higher attack speed but the results were no better, i think in large to the spec not just relying on autoattack to deal good damage, and the proc and OA from valguur gloves is extremely good.
Physical resist is at 35% with my rolls and armor just over 2k but with 100% absorb. Tested with prismatic diamond and it messed up my resists and didn’t seem to help with surving at all.
The build facetanks all nemesis but be careful with fabius if you have DA mutator and try not to take gravas null orbs to the face. Kuba is also an issue with his huge vitality resist and if you stand in his blood pools whilst face tanking him (like i do in my video) the damage reduction stacks up and he can take a long time to kill.
Try not to spam word of pain senselessly or you will drain your energy alot but other than that this build leeches pretty well.

I recorded boss chunks of sr75 and sr76, first runs I did with the build
here is a vid of SR 75 boss chunk:
Let me know if you want the character file to play with. Suggestions are welcome as long as they dont involve less attack speed or more squishiness lol
