PoE Duelist Gladiator Lacerate Skill Tree





Gems Setup

Lacerate - Melee Physical Damage - Brutality - Multistrike - Impale - Fortify

Vaal Ancestral Warchief - Melee Physical Damage - Brutality - Maim

Aura: Pride - Blood and Sand - Dread Banner - Arctic Armour

Blood Rage - Increased Duration - Enhance

Cast when Damage Taken - Immortal Call - Increased Duration - Vulnerability

Movement: Leap Slam - Faster Attacks - Endurance Charge on Melee Stun


Leveling Setup

We need to get a Paua Amulet from Nessa at start to help with mana regeneration. We need Perforate from Tarkleight at start and use it until level 12 where we can get Lacerate after The Siren's Cadence quest. Before Leap Slam, we will use Dash we get after Breaking Some Eggs quest with Quicksilver Flask until level 10, where we can get Leap Slam after The Caged Brute quest. Get movement Speed on boots(also to more item slots if possible) and use Quicksilver flask coupled with Leap Slam. We need to add Faster Attacks support to Leap Slam in Act 2 after Sharp and Cruel quest. For single targets, we'll use Double Strike until level 28, then switch to Vaal Ancestral Warchief. For buffs, we need to start using War Banner and Blood and Sand at level 4, after Breaking Some Eggs quest in Act 1 and stay in Sand Stance until we get Vaal Ancestral Warchief. Then get Herald of Ash at level 16 in Act 2. We also need to replace War Banner with Dread Banner at level 24 after Lost in Love quest. Change Herald of Ash with Pride at level 40. Our buffs will be Blood and Sand, Pride and Dread Banner. From that point until we get our mighty Soul Taker, Life and Mana Leech node on passive tree will help with replenishing mana. At level 59, we can get Soul Taker and add Arctic Armor to buffs. We don't have to get Soul Taker as soon as we hit level 59, build will run fine with Blood and Sand, Pride and Dread Banner buffs for enough that we'll be able to buy a Soul Taker easily. Add Impale as 5th gem to Lacerate and Fortify as 6th gem. Don't forget to overcap your resists to at least 109 for Elemental Weakness map mod.

Fast Levelling Tips

Here are some tips for fast levelling:

Economy (What To Get):

Act 1: Scroll of Wisdoms(sell Blacksmith Whetstones and Armourer's Scraps / Orb of Transmutation(sell items unidentified)
Act 2: Scroll of Wisdoms(sell Blacksmith Whetstones and Armourer's Scraps / Orb of Alteration(sell items identified)
Act 3+: Scroll of Wisdoms(sell Blacksmith Whetstones and Armourer's Scraps / Orb of Alteration(sell items identified) and after item level 60 do Chaos recipe.

Zone Levels:

Level 1-16: Stay at zone level
Level 16-31: Stay 3-4 levels under zone level
Level 32-47: Stay 4-5 levels under zone level
Level 48-60: Stay 5-6 levels under zone level
Level 54-62: Blood Aqueducts is a good place to fast level and do chaos recipe
Level 90+: Do Beachhead rotas until level 94-95, then do Pure Breachstone rotas until level 100.

That's all about levelling this build, because Lacerate is one of the easiest skills to level with. We don't need to do anything special here. Build doesn't need any specific items for levelling, but here are some to make it even faster:

Weapon: The Screaming EagleRelentless FuryThe Gryphon

Helmet: Ezomyte HoldThe PeregrineDeidbellDevoto's Devotion

Body: Tabula Rasa, BriskwrapFoxshadeBelly of the Beast

Gloves: HrimsorrowHaemophilia

Boots: WanderlustVictario's FlightShavronne's Pace

Belt: Meginord's GirdleFeastbind

Jewellery: Blackheart, Le Heup of All, Praxis, Karui Ward, Carnage Heart

Note: Only use Praxis ring if you still have mana issues until Act 6, then change it with a rare ring.


All Most Content Setup

Please read this one first before reading next one (Meta Gear version).

One Handed Axe
Quality: +30%
Physical Damage: 201-326
Critical Strike Chance: 5.00%
Attacks per Second: 1.61

175% increased Physical Damage
24% increased Attack Speed
+31% to Global Critical Strike Multiplier
+19% to Cold Resistance
+65 to Accuracy Rating
Adds 17 to 30 Physical Damage

On main hand we need an axe that has 400+ physical dps and also having high attacks per second(at least 1.60). Global Critical Strike Multiplier mod is not needed here.

We need Soul Taker on off-hand to be able to use Leap and Lacerate indefinitely thanks to "Insufficient mana doesn't prevent your melee attacks" mod, also to fill mana reserve with Blood and Sand, Pride, Arctic Armor and Dread Banner. For SSF, easiest way to get a Soul Taker is chancing ilvl 59+ Siege axes. Soul Taker is the only unique Siege Axe so it's not too hard to get.


Blood Rage grants additional 12% increased Attack Speed

+93 to maximum Life
23% increased Rarity of Items found
+35% to Fire Resistance
+29% to Cold Resistance
74% increased Armour

We're gonna use a rare helm having life and then required resists. Our enchant needs to be "Blood Rage grants additional %12 Increased Attack Speed". Easiest way to obtain a helm like this is to buy a Royal Burgonet or an Eternal Burgonet having the helm enchant, then craft on it doing alt+aug then regal. If going for a pure lab build we need Devoto's Devotion here for even more attack speed.


We need a 6-link Belly of the Beast and run Lacerate on it. We need Belly because we basically need all the affixes it has. We can use a 5-link until we get a 6-link and don't use Fortify gem until we get a 6-link. As well instead of a Belly, you can get a rare chest with at least %9 increased max life, +130ish max life, and needed resists(also free space to craft %Increased Maximum Life and Mana) as an alternative if you come across a cheaper one compared to a Belly or craft one instead.


Spiked Gloves
20% increased Melee Damage
Adds 6 to 10 Physical Damage to Attacks
Adds 1 to 2 Fire Damage to Attacks
15% increased Attack Speed
+87 to maximum Life
+20% to Cold and Lightning Resistances

Here we need Spiked Gloves having physical damage, attack speed and life, and then required resists. There's also another option, which I'll be telling in Meta Gear version below. Also don't forget to cap levels of your gems in your CWDT setup here like this: Cast While Damage Taken(lv3) - Immortal Call(lv5) - Vulnerability(lv7) - Increased Duration(lv20)


Titan Greaves
16% increased Attack and Cast Speed if you've Killed Recently

+78 to maximum Life
+41% to Cold Resistance
+48% to Lightning Resistance
25% increased Movement Speed
Non-Vaal Skills deal 60% increased Damage during Soul Gain Prevention

For boots we need needed 2 resist mods, movement speed and life. We also need the enchant "Increased Attack and Cast Speed If You've Killed Recently" because we'll be constantly leaping and killing. As for the crafted mod, we need "Non-Vaal Skills Deal %60 Increased Damage During Soul Gain prevention"(Jun mod) so this way we have %60 more damage when our Vaal Ancestral Warchief is active and soul gain prevention is running(those red chains appearing on skill logo, 9 seconds in total), which is a good improvement for Lacerate when boss killing. We can also get it on gloves to make it double.


Rustic Sash
24% increased Global Physical Damage

+379 to Armour
+98 to maximum Life
+22% to Fire Resistance
+29% to Lightning Resistance
24% increased Stun and Block Recovery
16% increased Damage

Here we need to have life, needed resists and then craft %Increased Damage on it.

Steel Ring
Adds 4 to 16 Physical Damage to Attacks

+30 to Dexterity
Adds 10 to 15 Physical Damage to Attacks
+45% to Fire Resistance
+37% to Lightning Resistance
+55 to maximum Life

For rings we need physical damage and life on both rings, and then needed resists. And then craft %Increased Damage on at least one of them. You can also craft attack speed for the second if you don't have a place for a prefix. But it'll be better if we can craft %Increased Damage on both.

Citrine Amulet
Allocates Discipline and Training

+24 to Strength and Dexterity
Adds 14 to 25 Physical Damage to Attacks
Adds 1 to 2 Fire Damage to Attacks
+88 to maximum Life
+34% to Fire Resistance
16% increased Global Physical Damage

On neck we need a rare amulet having physical damage, life with "%Increased Global Physical Damage" or "%Increased Melee Damage" as crafted mod depending on the situation of prefixes and suffixes. Anointment needs to be Discipline and Training. Here we can also get a Carnage Heart for cheap until we can get a rare amulet like this one.

12% increased Melee Damage
4% increased Attack Speed
7% increased maximum Life

We need damage, life and attack speed on jewels. If 4-mod, double damage. For cluster jewel, we need an 8 passive one having Feed The Fury, Martial Prowess and 2 jewel sockets. Also we need a Thread of Hope with Large radius and -10 or -11 to All Elemental Resistances. Please check Required Gear's Path of Building link up above to see how cluster jewel and Thread of Hope here are applied and passive nodes need to be refunded on the original tree for them. If you don't want to use a cluster jewel, simply follow trees listed under Passive Skill Tree section on this guide.
