This build is designed to provide maximum AOE DPS so you can melt through mob packs while at the same time giving you a fair amount of survivability. Rather than using a traditional critical hit chance and critical hit damage build(which can be extremely expensive) I decided to instead stack mostly dexterity and then get a few pieces of cheaper critical hit gear.
Link to the build:
I’m running a one hander + shield. My build is balanced between attack speed and critical hit chance, I have 28.5% critical hit chance and my rings are +dexterity and +attack speed. Going for attack speed + dexterity on rings is the difference between paying 1 million gold for a ring and 20 million gold for a ring. Also my weapon has 720 dps, +300 dexterity and +700 life on hit but no critical hit damage and cost . This cost me only 2 million as opposed to 20 million+ you’d pay for a comparable weapon with critical hit chance.
My helm is socketed with a Ruby giving +25% experience(to help level Paragon levels faster). I also picked up magic find on gear when I could afford to giving me +115% unbuffed magic find.
How to play with this build
You’ll want to first ensure that Mantra of Evasion is up at all times. Secondly ensure Sweeping Wind is up. After that you’ll want to pull all enemies in to you with Cyclone Strike and then immediately use Seven-Sided Strike. With the Flminating Onslaught rune SSS does INCREDIBLE damage to closely grouped mobs. When mobs are close together this rune will make ALL the mobs take 1777% weapons damage.
Just keep popping SSS when it’s up and pulling in enemies close with cyclone strike.
The backlash rune on Mantra of Evasion coupled with the rune wall of wind for Cyclone Strike(20% dodge) and then high dex + sixth sense should give you roughly a 70% dodge rate. With that high of a dodge you’ll be CONSTANTLY proccing backlash, which coupled with sweeping wind and your primary attack outputs incredibly high AOE dps.
