The reason behind this build is to use Stormrend axe from totems + shield for Primal Strike. This time I chose to use Blitz with it and therefore used a Warder. Primal Strike hits hard even with one weapon, added to that we have two movement skills - Blitz and Masterful Rahn’s Might - with which you can avoid getting hit if needed. You can facetank most of the single boss enemies even in SR.
Crafting bonuses on helm and medal are to stun resistance. To address the coming questions - component on the belt is chosen for OA.

nice life around 14000 HP
nice DA - close to 3000 DA

with good movement you can reduce getting hit if necessary but you can facetank easily most of the time
high important CC resistances except trap (not that useful anyway, Benny is easy)
reasonably overcapped resistances
nice physical resistance 25 %
nice armor - around 2400
% damage reduction to enemies and disrupt their skills from War Cry (with good CDR almost always up)
Prismatic Rage from component
blocks from shield
This build does SR 65-66 relatively easily. It doesn’t even have any great problems with Grava which melee lightning builds usually do. I don’t push my characters higher but it can go higher if you are a skilled player. I don’t play Crucible so I don’t have a time number for it.
