About This Build

This is clearly a glass cannon build designed to spike the hell out of damage at the appropriate times.  The Juvenile Wolf is the main pet to use and use whatever you are happy with as a secondary. If you would like a little more push in your burst damage trade out Divinity Runes for Superior Runes of the Ogre. You will get a little more output but not much in the long run. Check the video above for skill rotations and specific combos.
