Definitely a go to for Cern, includes most things a learner would need to know

Huh? Doesn't include any info at all, and the build isn't suggested.

Good build

Actually, needs some work.
  • You really don't need 3 lifesteal items. You might be okay with Cowl + one of the others (probably Asi), but I probably wouldn't go that direction right now. In S9, just getting Cowl as your LS was functional because hunters were quite strong as a class, and that also worked quite well for Cern because of his optional LS in spring stance. That could still work here if you like Cowl as your starter.

    Cern wants AS since he doesn't have a steroid in his kit, so I'd lean toward Asi as your main LS. The common starter in 10.1 is Death's Toll going into Death's Temper, which is strong because Asi's LS is very solid.

    In any case, when you commit to that much lifesteal, you're opening yourself up to major counters from anti-heal. Sure, you might have higher LS even after getting anti-heal applied, but having 3 items with significantly reduced function starts making your build very inefficient.

  • When you go crit, you really should typically get Deathbringer as 2nd crit item. This is due to cost more than anything else, but you want to consider these types of things in your build order. If for some reason you have the entire sum of gold you can use to get DB, it isn't the worst thing as the stats are solid, but typically Demon would be recommended first, and depending, probably pen ( Dominance or The Executioner) after it.

  • Your skill order is messed up IMO. I see the notes to point skip level 8/9, but I don't really get why you're building into Shifter of Seasons before your main poke/wave-clear. Keep in mind, until you get your AS and damage up, your various stances aren't going to be nearly as effective. You really should max Bramble first, then go into Shifter.

  • Where's Aegis Amulet?
If you're open to experimentation, you might consider trying one of the following:

Fair critique of the skills. I really only wanted to add the build then kind of just added that. I removed it. My guide isn't very in-depth so I'll keep it just build for those looking for that.

Edit: You're right about the anti heal. Definitely gotta change out the gloves for probably Qin's maybe rage if that happens. I probably need to add some to the relic to either do aegis or beads depending on enemies.

I did try removing the gloves in favor of Qin's sais, just moving that at the end. Need a few more games to try the build out. Need a few more games to try that out to see which works better.
