Introduction

The Roland's set splits its damage bonuses evenly between a sustain damage and a burst damage skill, boosting Sweep Attack Sweep Attack and Shield Bash Shield Bash with equal numbers. This Shield Bash Shield Bash variant is a bursty, single target-heavy, assassination-oriented build that is geared towards Greater Rift solo progression, but we also have a speed farming variation.
