  1. So is that the only weapon I will need throughout my whole time using this character?

  2. Is this build going to be stronger then Cyclone dualist with starforge in your opinion ?

    • gems

      Both builds are strong options, it’s a matter of preference. This one might be a bit easier to gear since Starforge will probably be really expensive.

  3. Hey, somewhat new to the game so this might be a stupid question: Why do we take Unstoppable over Unyielding, when we already have stun immunity from Her Embrace?

  4. Proepicpoegamer

    hey, this buils caught my eye, i want to try it out, will i be able to do low tier maps without oni goroshi? What priorities/sequence i should build in skill tree?

    • gems

      Hey! You will definitely be able to do maps without the Oni Goroshi, with Kaom’s Primacy, Sinvicta’s Mettle or even a rare 2-Hander if you can find one with decent dps. For faster leveling, prioritize damage nodes, get life/defensive nodes when you feel you need more survivability.

  5. thanks for the guide. im trying it. but im wondering why do you take acrobatics and phase acrobatics in the passive tree for a jugg, which is an armor tank? is the 50% LESS armor really worth the dodge chances? im wondering…

    thanks

    • It worked really well before, but with Legion, I think they changed something about armor. I need to test this and update skill tree accordingly, thank you.

  6. why do you have endurance charge on stun linked on ur weapon in the 6l? am i missing something?

    • Hello.
      Build spends endurance charges quickly while using tectonic slam. I found it smoother experience overall. You can try and swap it out, build is just a guideline, you don’t have to follow word by word. If you find setup that works better, please let us know. 🙂 Cheers.

  7. Why do you choose Jugg over Chieftan?I cannot decide between the two and i was wondering if you could help me out..

    • Both ascendancies work great with a tectonic slam. Jugg provides defense, Chieftain, on the other hand, has some pretty sweet dmg nodes. It is a personal preference, I would choose survivability over damage because with Oni-Goroshi we have enough damage anyway. + Legion monsters tend to hit pretty hard, you can’t deal damage if you are dead. 🙂 Hope it helps.
