Progress report on my Marauder in Path of Exile, who is now level 47 and kicking butt in Act 2 of Ruthless difficulty.

This is a simple build based on pure strength. He specializes in two-handed mace weapons and a high armor rating for defense. Speed and maneuverability are a subspecialty, using gear to increase running speed and passive skills to boost attack speed.

The main attack skill is Heavy Strike with 2 support gems that add lots of elemental damage. I sometimes swap this for Infernal Blow or Glacial Hammer depending on the type of enemy. My right click skill is Ground Slam, which is does less damage but is great for hitting a whole group of foes at the same time. It also can hit at range, so I slam the ground as a large monster is approaching me. I have a couple totem skills that are useful for distracting crowds of monsters.

This character has been doing well in the late game, but I would like to find a better suit of armor, that hopefully has more than 4 linked sockets. I could also use more mana, as I run out too often and have to drink potions to continue attacking.
