Build Description

INTRO:
This is a guide to my Physical ST Slayer. It is a perfect league starter, can be used in SSF and scales to do all content in the game. It is a lot of fun to play as it is fast and tanky, has good clear speed and easily destroys all bosses. The guide is very detailed and probably contains answers to all your questions so please read it first before asking.

Don't just watch the videos and download the PoB. There are really no significant changes to the build with this patch. This is a very good thing for us since Slayer Cyclone was very popular in 3.7 and GGG has a tendency to over-nerf popular things. Thankfully their nerf affects the only Cyclone with a tiny change to Slayer.


PROS & CONS:
+ Can easily do all content in the game
+ Cheap, non meta gear
+ Fast and fun to play, 0.5 sec Whirling Blades, easy to dodge boss slams
+ 2-button build. We only use ST and WB, everything else is automated
+ 7K life without Belly
+ Huge leech
+ Good clear speed
+ Good boss killing ability
+ Great league starter
+ Stun, bleed and reflect immunity built in
+ Suitable for SSF
+ Easy to level, all skills available very early
+ No required gear
+ Not likely to get nerfed
+ Spectral Wolves + HoP Sentinels as decoys
+ Every party loves Slayer cull
- We have to switch a gem for clear/single target
- Not the current meta million DPS build


ASCENDANCY:


1. Endless Hunger
2. Brutal Fervour
3. Headsman
4. Bane of Legends


BANDITS:
Kill all is the best option.


PANTHEON:
Major God - Soul of Solaris
Minor God - Soul of Ryslatha
