About

This is an relatively easy build to do. The ascendancy note "Gratuitous Violence" gives you so much clearing effect. More than that, when you encounter bosses, use you vaal breach gem to increase your DPS, Healing Effect, Flask Charges, Defenses by A LOT. Of course, you'll need good breach ring to do a better job. To survive easily in those breaches, you'll absolutely need to reach a high block chance and spell block chance. You may have some problem using intelligence using my build. To solve that problem, I'm using a 80 intel amulet. In short, use shield charge to move then use viper strike to slains monsters. When you encounter a boss or something really tanky, pop-up your vaal breach and fight around him. Sometimes you'll be unlucky and you'll need to fight some Breach Lords but if you caped with high HP, you'll be fine. I removed the jewel sockets in the tree but it is really important to have some.
