[3.12 PoE Build] Earthshatter Marauder (Juggernaut)

Intro & build description

The build is pretty simple and straightforward, however, it is very effective and works from the moment you pick up your first weapon. Of course, you will not have access to Earthshatter straight away, you will be able to get it at the end of Act 1. The build is meant for people who enjoy tanker builds who can survive a punch and not rely on any specific uniques for the build to function which makes this build a great league starter in a fresh economy.

Build Pros

  • Very tanky
  • Great league starter build
  • High single/AoE damage potential
  • No specific unique requirements to work. Use the best rares you can find/afford to breeze through content

Build Cons

  • Not the fastest clear speed
