The reason behind this build is to create a two handed melee aether Spellbinder using the Krieg set and the Scion of Screaming Veil. I already have a similar build here with a Death Knight. As main damage skills I rotate a couple of nukes - Will of the Fallen Kings (Vire like skill from rune), Bone Harvest, Reaping Arc and Krieg’s Wrath. These nukes have all nice AoE and their cooldowns are OK for rotating them all the time. For life sustain the build has nice lifesteal and Siphon Souls. The build fully converts vitality damage to aether using the Scion and a monster infrequent belt. SR 80 is easy.
Build uses one monster infrequent item for conversion. It doesn’t really matter what affixes you have. I have chosen the best so that they are not double rare. Crafting bonus on amulet and medal is to stun 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 easily. No boss is a problem - not even Reaper. Just use Mirror and Mark of Torment and you will be fine. 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.
