More Details
  • Legendary Gems

    • Seeping Bile
    • Blessing of the Worthy
    • Berserker's Eye
    • Fervent Fang
    • Everlasting Torment
    • Chained Death

It's the pretty basic recommended SSS build with the following changes:

Everlasting Torment

While The Hungerer gives you health back on kill, you probably won't need it because you'll be out of combat with all your exploding palm charges

Issatar 4-set

Better alternative for more consistent damage among AOE targets. You don't need the 6-set on the Grace of the Flagellant like the build recommends.

You should choose between:

  • Issatar 4-set and 2-set Grace of the Flagellant - Use Mystic Allies for more single-target damage
  • Grace of the Flagellant 4-set and Issatar 2-set - Use Inner Santuary with either of the other helmet options for single-target damage

As for the stat priorities:

You want to prioritize Strength on every piece of gear you have. On your accessory items you'll still want to prioritize Strength, but it's less important than Red or Blue Sockets with either Tourmaline (Raw Damage) or Sapphire (Armor Penetration (Crit Chance)). If you feel like you're weak then use Life gems or put your paragon points into Life. Otherwise you should be doing so much damage that you don't need to worry about survivability.

Active Tree

Pretty much as every other build describes: focus on Damage. Take Vanquisher and get everything except for Life and Judgement. This'll make killing mobs in the open world especially easy. From there: good luck, I have no more advice for you.
