Yes, because with 30 traits in Toughness, a butt-load of toughness on gear, a quicker regenerating dodge bar, and EP(een?) you sure are sacrificing a whole lot in survivability. I guess, rezzing everyone after what could have been a group wipe (because of superior personal survival) isn't supportive enough.
You so silly.
Maybe you should actually play the build and learn it before making judgements.
As far as I'm concerned, everyone arguing with red are just flapping their lips with nothing to prove their case. It's just a bunch of people wailing "poast #s pl0x!". Put your disillusions aside for a moment and think beyond the builds utility bar.
Get real, people. Actually try the build for yourself for a while, play it right, and then come in here with a verdict. I've been playing the build for a few days now, and my DPS is sky high. My Sword+Axe/Rifle build falls somewhat short of this Berzerker build, but I'm still working on mine. As it rests, this build is just amazing.
So please stop eating around the fruit in the jello.
Thank you for that post.
I prefer that criticism comes from people who actually have a clue of what the build at hand does and tested it.
Defense-wise, you're running around with 3200+ toughness and two Endure Pain, you can hardly get more survivability.
When thinking of support, think of it like this.
In war, a field medic heals wounded units, giving great support to the soldiers but none or little damage.
A M1 Abrams tank instead is dealing fearsome damage while being very resilient, blowing things up before they can harm the soldiers and absorbing otherwise lethal damage.
Now give that tank a banner that resurrect soldiers.
On another note, this build works very well with Rifle too.
The big damage applies even more to Rifle due to the fact CritDmg is affecting it even more than it affects the GS.
If you build up your stacks and then use the Rifle you'll get such big hits that make you look around suspiciously to make sure no one noticed how OP that shot was.
