I said Adrenaline tree hehehe But yes it procs often in Legendary and +4 skills is one goal for my melee builds so those unused points aren't hard to find.
LM, have you tried the Conq build with focusing on Dual Wield and Adrenaline (+synergies) as opposed to going with the shield skills? This is what im doing now and im not biased towards any one way to do it, so i was just curious i i'd have better luck with going shield instead of another mace.
Shield Conqueror is better, because essentially you are dual wielding (attacking with weapon and shield) while keeping all the nice stuff like Quick Recovery, chance to block and so on
My Legendary heroes:
Slight Improvements Mod
You'd lose the shield skills as Asheron said, not only the damage-dealer ones, but also Shield Smash which is very powerful with Harmstring. Conq is the best tank in this game imo, even without a shield you still can have a unbelievable survivability,
however with a good shield you can achieve 100% block - 0 shield recovery it's just too overpowered to pass up. (Bear in mind, you can have over 81% damage absorption, adrenaline proc, onslaught building up damage all at the very same time...)
Im gonna post my Titancalc build later on today sometime. I just got 25%(if not more) on all resistances. I just got into Hade's little castle there on Act IV normal. And im having some issues with survivability when it comes to more than 5 mobs at a time or +2 yellow/captain mobs at the same time. Bosses are pretty easy, because i pop Colossus and that Battle flag thing and im good.
Last act on normal is a bit itchy , but after that it just gets easier , somehow.....
what if i were to go for a dual-wielding Conqueror rather than a shield conqueror? assign all skill points into dual wield and synergies?

The following is just my personal opinion, but I feel very strongly about it: if you dual wield, you're missing the whole point of playing a conqueror . The shield passives on the right side of the defense mastery screen absolutely rock, and many of defense's skills focus on making a shield more effective. If you want to go for a dual wielding character, play something like an assassin or harbinger!
