Dom's Shadar-Kai Chains Barbarian

I have created a ying-style write up for the Shadar-Kai Chains Barb build that I created to solo R10s. The writeup contains feats, enhancements, epic destinies, gearing, commentary about choices and a breakdown for the most important mechanics. The build guide is updated for U61. I also have a maetrim planner built for this - if you are interested in the build and would prefer a maetrim file version, dm me on discord (Dom4284).

Why wouldn't you go 22 in VKF? You'd get 20mp. You could easily drop 1 from ravager, 1 from war soul, and one from either OS or Racial for this.

I could likely make that change work just fine, however for the intended purpose of the build (I built it mainly to solo R10s for fun), the loss of 1 ap from OS or the racial tree wouldn't be worth it in my opinion.

The Occult Slayer point would result in a loss of 60 flat hps, 5 MRR, 20 Heal Amp, and an additional 1% barbarian DR.

The 1 Racial point would result in a loss of Assassin's Mark which, when it lands any non-boss mobs, gives the mobs a debuff of -10% damage and -5% attack speed which can stack up to 8 times.

In normal circumstances where I'm raiding or running R10s with a group, I wouldn't worry much about these, but for the purposes of soloing, both of those can help a lot.

You could drop the point in warlock to get it, since 20mp all the time is way better then the warlock sometimes buff, and then pick the warlock up for raiding.

Great! 😍

It doesn't fail, being short of time is key for interesting things like this to be posted 😄

Thank you, Dom.
