Very simple and effective. Can easily complete all types of solo and open world content, and passively provides very strong boon support to yourself and other players.

Also depending on the content you are doing, using a superior sigil of stamina can be an insanely strong alternative to energy sigils. It also gives you the option of taking axe as your second weapon for enemies that arent as susceptible to confusion.

Probably the easiest solo build in the game, to be honest. Able to solo champions with 2-button gameplay.
