The reason behind this build is to use conversion on Avenger’s Crusher to fully convert lightning damage on Primal Strike to physical damage. For physical damage support and general tankiness I have chosen Soldier as the second class. Because of bonuses to both classes and tankiness I have chosen the SR set as the core of the build. Build has few active skills and is very easy to play. Build is also very tanky. Wendigo Totem gives us healing of 6 % + 740 HP every half second. That means healing of over 4000 HP/s and build also has great lifesteal. It is practically impossible to kill it in SR 80. SR 80 is a complete joke for this character.
I also have other Primal Strike builds here.
Here is a list comparing all my Primal Strike builds from best to worst. All are at least SR 65-66 capable.
Dragonborn – great build, 2H melee physical PS, good offensively and very powerful defensively (best of my PS builds)
Thor – great build, 2H melee lightning PS, offensively similar to Dragonborn, defensively noticably weaker than Dragonborn
Aetheros Ranged – great build, 2H ranged aether PS, offensively a little weaker than Dragonborn, defensively a little weaker than Thor
Aetheros – great build, 2H melee aether PS, offensively a little better than Aetheros Ranged (and a little weaker than Dragonborn), defensively a little weaker than Aetheros Ranged
Colderos – great build, 2H melee cold PS, offensively noticably better than Dragonborn (best of my PS builds), defensively a little weaker than Aetheros
Colderos Ranged – great build, 2H ranged cold PS, offensively a little weaker than Colderos, defensively a little weaker than Colderos (actually only when facetanking bosses otherwise you can take out enemies from distance)
Viteros – good build, 2H melee vitality PS, offensively a little weaker than Aetheros Ranged, defensively similar to Colderos Ranged
Meme Striker – good build, 2H melee lightning PS, offensively similar to Colderos, defensively noticably weaker than Colderos Ranged
Storm Knight – good build, 1H melee + shield lightning PS, offensively noticably weaker than Viteros, defensively a little weaker than Meme Striker
Storm Blitzer – good build, 1H melee + shield lightning PS, offensively a little weaker than Storm Knight, defensively a little weaker than Storm Knight
Savage Stormrender – OK build, DW melee lightning PS on cooldown, offensively noticably weaker than Storm Knight, defensively a little weaker than Storm Knight
Crafting bonus on boots is to slow resistance.

I play SR with camera pointed away from enemies and I try my builds only in SR 65-66 and SR 80. I play around 10 SR runs per character.
This build does SR 80 very easily. In fact it is a complete joke. I don’t push my characters higher but it can go a lot higher if you are a skilled player. In SR I use as a movement skill Wendigo Rush.
I don’t play Crucible so I don’t have a time number for it.
