Hello! So, I wanted to post a build…well more of a strategy than a build, so it’ll be easier to put together. It’s for the warrior, but it plays more like a mage than a warrior. It easily got me all the way to 200+ on EP8, and once I upgraded my equipment it was easy to breeze through EP8. I’ve swapped a LOT of the equipment with very little changes so feel free to do what you want with it. I run with legendaries at the moment, just because it was easier to find a build combo that way ( I was really new) rather than roll epics.
[color=#40BF00]A NOTE ON PETS-[/color]I use Faun cuz she’s the only Legendary pet I have, but fairies help a lot with this build. Even if just a failsafe, bring a fairy on maps 200+. BUT if you can do without I’ve noticed something! [color=#FF00FF]ANY(thanks Harahell) Imps can DROP LEGENDARIES! [/color]I’ve gotten like 10 this way-some rings, an ammy, a Plunderbuss(+50% ITEM QUANTITY!), and 3 sets of Lucky Pistols. So rock one if you can. Also, the items they drop can be epics with 1-6 epic stats but the items they drop (as far as epics go) have a MUCH higher tendency to have multiple epic affixes, or even all, than anything I pick up.(thanks again for the correction Harahell!)
[color=#FF0000]Pro-Tip[/color]:[color=#00BF00]HOW TO LINK A PS3 CONTROLLER TO YOUR ANDROID PHONE WITHOUT AN OTG (On The Go) CONVERTER CABLE!-FREE!

So, why name it “Greased Up Deaf Guy”? Great Question! Because Family Guy is funny to me, and because you never stop running! Ever. And you’re constantly running circles around the bosses, so it makes me LOL. IMHO this build has better survivability and DPS than my Rogue and Wizard. I can steadily use this build on 200+ and not have to worry about dying as long as there’s enemies to hit. Of course, falling crap still 1-shots everyone. Axe is a bit slower, but more survivability, whereas the horn kills faster but a bit weaker defensively. This build kicks ass now, and not one of my items is ilvl100 yet. None have been max-stat-rolled yet. Over 5mil crits on the regular[color=#008000] (another Pro-Tip-go to options and turn on show crit damage only, easier to see your crit damage and decreases the flood of #s)[/color]. I’ve only gotten my trap rogue to get the same and it’s more glass cannon and has to stay put to do the same DPS.
Let me start with the most important skill for this-Crushing Blow. Now, you might be inclined to press this all the way to the cap-WRONG…WRONG (he’s Rick James, man…), you actually want to keep your crushing blow only on ONE ITEM and as LOW AS POSSIBLE! This is because, as you probably well know, CB takes a static 25% of the enemy’s HP. This rocks when it has several million…but can screw you once it hits a couple hundred thousand and every other hit is a crushing blow, it can make even regular enemies take days to kill once they get to the last 1/4 of their HP bar. Sucks to see “crushing blow” over and over and over and over and not one crit.
2 Main variations of the build. One uses a HORN offhand for damage and sprints/'nados like a beast. The second uses an axe main for damage and simply holds down the button, with a shield for offhand for extra def/hp/res.
The bracket will be my equipment, the skills listed after are what it has, so you can roll an epic with the same or better to your tastes. After listing the Equipment I will list how to use the build, and once I get bluestacks working or a recorder for my phone I can upload videos! A controller is highly recommended for this, your finger may get hot from leaving it on the screen like non-stop.

For Rolling Priorities will be different depending on which damage maker you choose. I will separate accordingly. For both you want blood magic if at all possible, as soon as possible, meaning at least one slot to a legendary item, but there’s tons of them out there, you can get it on a every kind of equip there is, just work around what you find. Feel free to pump luck, but I get buttloads of legendaries just from killing quickly and at ep8 on high ass levels, and my luck’s usually around 4-500 if I’m lucky, so don’t stress it. You will be hitting a LOT so crit chance and damage will see you hitting the millions EASY. I constantly crit for over 5 mil on EP8 and I haven’t even rolled my equips for good stats yet.
I can literally stand still and kill Ignis on EP8 in seconds without a single pot.

How To Run The Build:
[color=#8000FF]Horn- [/color]Hold down sprint, forever. When you reach a min boss or boss, launch a twister, then run a very tight circle around them. They will spin in place and miss you with every single one of their blasts. Pop another on cooldown. LOL @ the Crushing Blow rain. Spellsword would be wasted with this build, as you never use the main, which is why the hammer is perfect for this build! I prefer this build better than a mage simply because you pick up everything and don’t have to backtrack for crap you TP’d past.
[color=#8000FF]Axe-[/color] Spin through everything like a top. Same strategy for minbosses. If using Spell Sword just stand back and keep an eye on your health if using Blood Magic. The Procs are disgusting! You will have a storm of meteors, comets, twisters, and torrents.
FOR BOTH–[color=#BF00FF]CIRCLING(OR YO-YO) BOSSES/MINIBOSSES IS PARAMOUNT![/color] Wait until just after they launch their missiles as they have a small recharge time in which to cast your twister, etc. This is the only way to get close and hurt them w/o getting one-shotted especially necessary for higher challenge maps where you have like 3 epic/rare bosses at the same time. In general, make sure there’s enemies nearby when you use your skills, especially if you’re using Blood Magic! Nothing worse than killing yourself with a skill activation. I thik at the moment I have like 26 in Wrath, and just being around enemies refills health constantly, you’ll be surprised. Just make sure you have pots for those times when there aren’t any enemies or you’re too low to start a skill, etc.
Conclusion-Please excuse my shitty formatting and whatever, it’s my first ever build guide, it’s now 430am (started at midnight WTF), so it’s time to take a dab and hit the hay. I will try and do proper formatting if someone can help say how later. Hope this helps someone out there, cuz I coulda spent that time writing my 3 page essay due the 9th :mrgreen:
Here are some vids I took on my phone with the shou.be recorder-looks pretty freakin good for free 1080 too I think (sorry I screwed up uploading them the 1st time, as you can see I’ve literally never uploaded a single thing, ever…never felt the need to).
