Introduction

Flipping resource-spending attacks into generators plays right into the attack bonuses of the Unhallowed Essence set, allowing for several unconventional playstyles. One of them is the Chakram Demon Hunter — a far range, durable playstyle that offers considerable AoE. It is designed with Greater Rift solo progression in mind, but we do have a speed farming variation that you can access by clicking the link below.
