An extremely powerful solo build capable of taking on most open world content.

This extremely tanky build excels in long, grueling solo fights such as Queen's Gauntlet, where it can deal good sustained damage while self-healing constantly with Parasitic Contagion. It also has good AoE damage and a bursty bleeding combo for killing trash.

I'm relatively casual, but running this build with non-ascended Viper gear has been a big step up from my last build (which was admittedly a poor build I threw together).
