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 available in both Greater Rift solo progression and regular Rift farming variations, explained in that order.
