Introduction

One of the longest suffering sets in RoS, The Shadows Mantle received a full-blown rework in Patch 2.4 that aimed to propel it into endgame viability, as well as to introduce a new flavor to Demon Hunters. Mixed in with a Demon Hunter staple, the Marauder set, it creates a unique melee assassination playstyle that is geared towards Greater Rift solo progression. We also have a speed farming variation that you can access using the link below.
