Introduction

Leaning into the summoner Wizard fantasy, the Typhon Hydra build relies on a combination of ramping attacks and pet empowerment to fuel a simple, yet very flashy and capable playstyle with The Typhon's Veil set. This guide will cover all of its available playstyles. The base one presented on this page is the Greater Rift Solo Pushing Variation, but this build also has a Nephalem Rift (and Bounty) Farming Variation and a Greater Rift Speed Farming Variation; follow the links above to the respective alterations.
