*This build is BASED on Thorns, so you want as much THORNS DAMAGE as possible!,


Good Information about HOW THORNS WORKS:

There is multiple good setups for Weapon/Shield, I'd recommend:

a) T10: DB + LW or AA
B) Solo Push: PS + AA
c) Grift Speeds: DB + AA
d) Grift Push: PS + VS or AA

* Having correct stats is the most important thing! So if your LW is perfectly rolled and ur AA is junk, then use ur LW. :)

** LW = Lidless Wall (shield) --- BTW a tip for all, if you need a better Lidless Wall, then craft it on a barbarian. Your 8 times more likely to get a Lidless Wall on a barbarian from blood shards and upgrading rares to legendaries with Death Breaths than on a crusader.
** DB = DoomBringer (weapon)
** PS = Pig Sticker (weapon)
** AA = Akarats Awakening (shield)


Law/Prophet > Iron Skin (Phys CoE) > Consecration > Punish


Great Tips / Suggestions for the build:

1. Use Iron Skin and Consecration / Bombardment when you have +200 % Physical dmg from CoE.
2. In order for Belt of Trove to use "Barrels of Spikes" rune you must have Bombardment equipped.
3. Most important part of Belt of Trove, is to keep up the 50 % DMG Reduction from (4) set bonus.

Needs to be Tested (feel free to help test):

A) Sanguinary vambracers if they work with (2) piece invokers
B') Hack, if it works multipliactive with strg and how much % dmg increase it is
C) Omnislash belt, see if it makes Punish deal AOE dmg. Maybe even procs Hack.
D) Slash, use rune Zeal. Reaching 3 attack per second, might work with Hack!
E) Voy'Toyias Spiker, See if it works multipli- or additive. Works with skills or not? Better than arats awakening?
F) Iron Skin, if you use it before Consecration, does it work for 4 seconds or all 10 seconds?
G) Snapshot, is Iron Skin / Thorns dynamic or static?
H) Blood Brother vs. The Mortal Drama, which one is the best?
I) Block cap? Do we go way above block cap with Blood Brother?
