The reason behind this build is to create a two handed melee aether Oppressor using the Bonemonger set and the Scion of the Screaming Veil. As a main damage skill I use Bone Harvest with cooldown reduction from Ghol’s gloves. When not using BH you just autoattack or use other skills - Will of the Fallen Kings (Vire like skill from rune), Siphon Souls and Vire’s Might. These skills have all nice AoE and their cooldowns are OK for rotating them all the time. Use Bone Harvest on left mouse as an autoattack basically. Gameplay is as an autoattacker or a skater. Skater is slower but can be used when facetanking is tough. Vire with medal gives more damage even though it is converted to vitality but I have almost no physical to aether conversion anyways and weapon deals aether damage. Bonus on medal to Harbinger of Souls is good as well. For life sustain the build has nice lifesteal, Scales and Siphon Souls. The build fully converts vitality damage to aether using the Scion and Bonemonger set. It has good aether RR of up to -112 %. It can do SR 80 easily.
Build uses two monster infrequent items - Lunal’Valgoth’s Waistguard and Mark of Plagius. You want affixes for OA, DA and aether damage. I have chosen the best so that they are not double rare. Crafting bonus on helm 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 buid can do SR 80 easily. Reaper is tougher but doable. Use Mark of Torment regularily. Dodge hard hits with movement skills and you will be fine.
I don’t play Crucible so I don’t have a time number for it.
