Ultimate SR 65-66

Gladiator Crucible 150-170
This character’s first Gladiator Crucible run went from 1-170 but only 150-170 was video recorded.


Lokarr’s set and 2 Leovinus’ Rings were used until Level 94.

Gear options I encountered while leveling:


Fixing the resistances was harder compared to other builds and the resulting overcap are not so high.

Offense is good overall; 200% attack speed and good amount of RR. For Defense, Physical resistance is only 34% which is quite low but this character’s survivability is still fine.

Thank you for reading and I hope you find this build interesting! :grin:
