Slayer Sunder Duelist

By | December 18th, 2017 | Categories: Melee Builds, Path of Exile Builds

The Two-Handed Resolute Technique Slayer Sunder Duelist is affordable to build, has great survivability, can quickly clear maps, and has high DPS and life. However, it requires lots of attention because you’ll have to dodge many attacks and be careful with elemental attacks since it doesn’t deal much damage on single targets. Still, the pros outweigh the cons, making this build a plus to slayers.
