Brutus Lead Sprinkler Berserker
While most builds are centered on a particular active skill, the Brutus Lead Sprinkler Berserker is all about the weapon. Other than its iconic namesake weapon, it’s affordable and has good DPS, life. And while it doesn’t have a clear speed as high as other builds, it’s still very much a competent build.
