General Information

On this page, we explain everything that is specific to the Speed Farming variant of Chakram Demon Hunter. Updated for patch 2.6.6 and Season 18.

1.

Normal Rift Speed Farming Variation

The Chakram Demon Hunter can deal reasonably well with Normal Rift farming all the way through the highest Torment difficulties. The build variation suffers from minor inconveniences compared to top tier speed farming builds (lower AoE and overall damage compared to its pure Multishot sibling), but otherwise handles the task with ease.

Within the limited scope of regular difficulties, the necessary damage and toughness to triumph over the enemy is significantly smaller. Thus, your best course of action is to improve utility and speed.

Passive Skills

The only necessary adaptation of skills is in your passive selection, where you can drop a damage-oriented passive in favor of Tactical Advantage Tactical Advantage, an excellent mobility boost for regular rift farming and bounties. Either Steady Aim Steady Aim or Cull the Weak Cull the Weak can be easily dropped without a noticeable decrease in DPS.

Adapting Gear

Both the extra toughness form Wraps of Clarity Wraps of Clarity and the glass cannon damage increase of The Witching Hour The Witching Hour greatly diminish in usefulness during Normal Rift farming. That progression-oriented equipment will be better replaced by Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers (for the extra elite spawns) and a Goldwrap Goldwrap (for the synergy with Avarice Band Avarice Band and Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder), respectively.

Adapting Gemming

In speed runs, Elite and Rift Guardian fights take significantly less time. Thus, the value of Bane of the Stricken Bane of the Stricken diminishes and it is best replaced by Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder. This gem — alongside the Avarice Band Avarice Band plus Goldwrap Goldwrap setup — completes the gold utility triumvirate that offers near-invulnerability and great speed in normal rifts.

Adapting Kanai's Cube

To boost the clears of regular Rifts, you can pick between your best rolls of Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers and Warzechian Armguards Warzechian Armguards, and simply cube the inferior. Nemesis Bracers Nemesis Bracers will spawn you an elite for every shrine or pylon pick up, while Warzechians will consistently speed you up from Chakram Chakram's environment destruction.

As a final boost of speed, use the Act III cache legendary ring Avarice Band Avarice Band. Its unique property extends your pickup radius up to the massive 30 yards for a generous 10 second period. Triggered, maximized and constantly refreshed from the endless stream of Boon of the Hoarder Boon of the Hoarder gold, the ring and the gem will keep you sped up, invulnerable (from the worn Goldwrap Goldwrap) and resource-capped (through Blood Vengeance Blood Vengeance).
