This Spellblade faces its enemies with a Sword coated in Fire while protecting himself with a Shield and bursts of Ward. Attack with Firebrand to stack Rhythm of Fire and Blade Weaver to enhance the destructive power of your next Flame Reave.
This build dives into combat head first to fight at close range and has tools to protect himself in case enemies surround him. Flame Ward is an incredible Skill with tons of Damage Reduction that can save you even from the most dangerous situations. The build also has decent mobility thanks to Teleport; a Movement Skill that grants great defensive buffs on use.
While this setup doesn't require any Unique to function, Sunwreath completely empowers Flame Reave by changing its default cone shape into a giant circle that expands around you. Items like Bastion of Honour, Omnis or Aurora's Time Glass can enhance the build tremendously, but are not mandatory.
Overall this beginner friendly Spellblade has amazing AoE clear and is suited for all the content in the game, even in Hardcore. If you are looking for an easy to play yet powerful melee build, this guide is perfect for you!
