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

The build plays along the lines of popular Thorns builds, like those based on Invoker or LoN sets. Your steady source of single target damage will come from regular application of Thorns with Punish Punish Celerity Celerity and Hack Hack, as you time your big burst cycles with combinations of Iron Skin Iron Skin Reflective Skin Reflective Skin and Bombardment Bombardment Barrels of Spikes Barrels of Spikes. Utilize Provoke Provoke Hit Me Hit Me to get the most out of your Reflective Skin Reflective Skins, as well as getting resets from your cubed Akarat's Awakening Akarat's Awakening. Consecration Consecration Bed of Nails Bed of Nails will provide you with both minor AoE damage and a source of sustain. Lastly, speed yourself through the rift with Laws of Hope Laws of Hope Wings of Angels Wings of Angels.

In your gear, focus on items that provide Thorns damage in their secondary stats; always keep in mind that Thorns cannot crit, and you should completely abandon Crit Chance and Crit Damage in favor of Cooldown Reduction and Attack Speed. The crucial items to pull off this build are Hack Hack and Belt of the Trove Belt of the Trove. Other high tier recommendations are Heart of Iron Heart of Iron, Aquila Cuirass Aquila Cuirass (cubed) and Akarat's Awakening Akarat's Awakening (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.
