This build is specifically created for The Thrill conquest (complete a Greater Rift 45 Solo without any Set items equipped).

The build plays similarly to an Immortal King set-based HotA build, but drops the two long cooldowns (Wrath of the Berserker Wrath of the Berserker and Call of the Ancients Call of the Ancients) that are managed by the set. Keep up your two passive buffs, Battle Rage Battle Rage and War Cry War Cry, active all the time. Use Threatening Shout Threatening Shout Falter Falter in the thick of the fight to maximize its debuff and protect yourself with Ignore Pain Ignore Pain when engaging bigger threats like elites. Carefully aim your Furious Charge Furious Charge Merciless Assault Merciless Assault to take advantage of its reset mechanic and maintain maneuverability. Last but not least, pulverize every enemy in your path with Hammer of the Ancients Hammer of the Ancients Smash Smash.

In your gear, focus on items that enhance fire damage and promote a static fighting style to fall in line with the HotA mechanics. The crucial items to pull off this build are The Gavel of Judgment The Gavel of Judgment and Bracers of the First Men Bracers of the First Men. Other high tier recommendations are Cindercoat Cindercoat, Aquila Cuirass Aquila Cuirass (cubed) and Band of Might Band of Might (cubed). The remaining suggestions are merely helpful, but will not make or break the run.

Properly allocated Kanai's Cube choices and decently leveled legendary gems will all but trivialize The Thrill conquest. Do not neglect them.
