Intro & build description
Very easy and straightforward build to play which can tank quite a bit. Due to the high amount of enduring charges and an insane amount of armor, this build is pretty much immune to the physical damage while going a fair bit of damage itself. Build works like magic straight from the beginning, no transitions, or specific uniques to enable the build. Pick the highest DPS weapon available at the time and smash things till they die.
The end goal is to stack as much strength as we can to scale up the damage though Pillar of the Caged God.
