I love build number 2! But I was wondering if you had a more speedy and fast cool down build using the icewall to trap and the speed to body block

Hmm, it's not the strongest overall but using Animosity like build 2 does:

Benevolence > Talaria Boots > Sovereignty > Talisman of Energy > Relic Dagger > Mantle of Discord > Swap boots for Winged Blade
