I totally agree.  I wanted to take the time to say thank you for your knowledge, time and effort that you took to make this awesome guide.  By far the most informative that I have found.  I really look forward to continued posts.  Keep up the good work

Love the guide, just have a quick question about gems. For the fire variant, how does replacing pain enhancer w/ Bane of the Powerful stack up? I would think 15/35% against the toughest foes would edge out a physical dot on crit with a useless (for this build) secondary, but I'm still pretty new to end game.

Hello! While Bane of the Powerful is not a bad choice, it's a universal rule in Diablo that stacking too heavily into one source of damage (in this case elite bonuses) will lessen your benefits from it. In the ideal case scenario, you're already running Furnace (up to 50% Elite damage), Stone of Jordan (up to 30%) and Unity (up to 15%). Since the non-elite damage bonus of BotP doesn't increase with levels, only the length of the buff, you'll find yourself at the mercy of RNG to keep it up in progression environments (sometimes the elites aren't there, or take longer, etc.), and a consistent source of physical damage like the Pain Enhancer is prefered.

Just decided to roll a barb since i had an ancient Furnace drop for me and follow this guide. Only thing i see is if we are running Furnace as a weapon we can be using it in Kanai's Cube because the benefits don't stack. What is a good alternative cube option?

I would likely try a Heart Slaughter polearm in hand and Furnace in the cube. Keep in mind the set is bound for a rework in an upcoming patch, and some of the recommendations might be misplaced a few months down the line! :)

The furnace weapon and the furnace cube don't stack right? So what would I run in the cube if I'm equipping an ancient furnace?

Probably cubing the Furnace and wearing a Heart Slaughter would be your best option at the moment. I would encourage you to look into other builds however (HotA, Rend, Whirlwind...) as the Furious Charge build is currently underpowered and is set for a rework in Patch 2.4 (coming out in a few weeks!)

Out of curiosity if I have a furnace in hand and a rimeheart in cube will the rimeheart trigger off of furious charge's freeze effect?

I'm still gearing up for this build and keeping it physical based but looking for an extra boost until I find the right pieces.

It should.  I can't think of any reason it wouldn't.

The set bonuses come only from having enough pieces; which pieces you have doesn't matter.  So any 5 pieces of the IK set plus any 3 pieces of the Raekor set will work.  The catch is, only the IK set has a belt and only the Raekor set has shoulders, so those two pieces are mandatory.  For the other spots, you can mix and match your best pieces from either set to come up with the right numbers.

Another noob question, with 4 pieces of Raekor set, you'll get "Furious Charge gains the effect of every rune"...

But some runes turns damage into Cold, Lightning or Fire... What the output will be ??

It will be of the selected rune type, so make sure to select a Physical one (I recommend unruned or Stamina).

I was wondering how should we heal ourselves with this build, I had to change a passive to take bloodthirst because I die to often without any healing oriented stat or passive, there is no life per fury spent on the stats priority so I didn't roll any on my gear did I miss something ?

Hello.

My question is: how do you keep on furious charging the Rift Guardian after he breaks the CC from FC? Whenever me and my ancients are close to the guardian he nearly always seems to attack me instead any of the ancients. Any tips on surviving the fight when the boss breaks CC? I can easily dodge their special abilities but whenever I get close to them I get one shotted to death.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Cheers!

High 60s. I've done GRift 69 recently, but I barely managed to do it as, like I mentioned earlier, the Rift Guardian kept on one-shotting me and so I finished it with under a minute time left. I will try to do GRift 70 in the nearest future, however, I don't think it will be an easy one when I still don't know how to survive(keep on dodging?) Rift Guardian's melee attacks.

Ah, ok.  That's higher than what I have experience in, so I can't be much help.

Glass cannon is putting it lightly. You're so tender. However there is one huge flaw with this build, beside being very vulnerable, if there are two mobs for whatever reason, that really screws everything up. You get only a couple of seconds off your charge, so that means you probably have 5-6 seconds where you can't do anything - beside moving away, or you risk dying. These situations do not arise often but when they do, it'll hurt. 

 

As for greater rifts, it's all about getting the *right* rift and an easy boss for your build. It's typical blizzard game, all boils down to RNG.

      We've already seen the preview for the patch and patch notes, as well as the new Season of Grandeur coming in two days, but the patch itself has now gone live! Check out the patch notes, featuring a lot of set changes, a brand new UI feature highlighting when Primal Legendaries drop, giving them a red beam and a huge and unique map icon, potions removed from the inventory, 5 new armory tabs and GR Keystones stored in the materials tab, a change to paragon point spending and more!
      2.6.4 (source)
      An update to Diablo III patch 2.6.4 is now live in the Americas for PC / Mac! Check out the full patch notes below to learn about all the latest changes. Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download the patch until it is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is in the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after the update is live until those regions have also patched.
       
      PATCH 2.6.4 - v2.6.4.54724
      Visit our Bug Report forum for a list of known issues. If you are experiencing technical issues with the patching process, connecting to Blizzard Services after installing the patch, or errors while playing a newly-patched game, please visit our support site or post in the Technical Support forum for assistance.
      Table of Contents:
      General Greater Rifts Seasons Class Set Changes All Classes Barbarian Crusader Demon Hunter Monk Necromancer Witch Doctor Wizard General Quality of Life Philosophy For this patch, we wanted to include a few frequently requested Quality of Life changes and focused on better celebrating and indicating Primal Legendary drops. Five (5) additional Armory tabs have been added for all characters, bringing the total to 10 Legendary Potions are no longer stored in player inventory and can be accessed or changed by right-clicking on the potion icon in the action bar Greater Rift Keystones are now stored in the Materials tab Any existing Greater Rift Keystones in both inventory and stash have been automatically moved Primal Legendaries are now marked by a red beam when they drop Primal Legendaries on the ground are now indicated by a red pentagram icon on the mini-map Primal Legendaries now have a red border and updated background on their icons Return to top Greater Rifts Philosophy The gameplay of micro-managing Paragon points during the course of a Greater Rift doesn't feel like especially engaging gameplay, nor was it consistent with the other existing rules of entering a Greater Rift. In addition, the below change to matchmaking is to make it much easier for all players to find groups for Greater Rifts, as the previous window (only between Greater Rifts) is typically very small. Paragon points can no longer be swapped while a Greater Rift is open Players can now be matched into public games where a Greater Rift is open Players who join in this manner will not be able to enter the active Rift, and players inside the Rift will be able to continue with no additional difficulty scaling until the run has been completed Return to top Seasons Season 16: Season of Grandeur The buff for Season of Grandeur has been implemented This buff gives all Seasonal players the legendary power from Ring of Royal Grandeur This buff does not stack with additional Ring of Royal Grandeur (either equipped or in Kanai's Cube) Unlike previous Seasonal buffs, this buff will not apply to Non-Seasonal players When completing a Greater Rift level 70 solo for the first time in a Season, a Primal Legendary is guaranteed to drop from the Rift Guardian Return to top Class Set Changes Philosophy We are taking another tuning pass across all class sets to improve class and set diversity at higher level Greater Rifts. Some of these values have been adjusted per our observations as well as player feedback during the 2.6.4 PTR. Thanks for testing!

      The Diablo 1 anniversary event has returned (with very little notice) and we get to explore the cathedral levels, kill some cultists and get our hands on unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets, and more! There's also retro vision, to make Diablo 3 look more like it's predecessor and you get to be fresh meat again as well! Check out all the details and head on in there right now, as the event has just started and will last through January 31st.

      Also, you can check out our event guide right here.
      The Darkening (source)
      Diablo’s anniversary is right around the corner, along with the Darkening of Tristram event! Whether you’re a series veteran craving nostalgia, or a newcomer hungry for your first taste of the franchise’s past, this annual loving homage to the earliest days of Diablo is for you.
      Read on for more, including a closer look at the anniversary dungeon and its unique rewards.

       
      Stop the Cultists
      Your journey begins on the trail of a group of mysterious cultists causing trouble in Sanctuary. As you hunt them down in Adventure Mode, you’ll uncover clues leading to a portal into Tristram’s past, and the terrifying darkness that took hold of the town so many years ago. . . .

       
      Explore the Cathedral
      Follow the clues and you’ll soon find yourself in a realm of glorious RetroVision™, where an all-too-familiar cathedral looms. Explore the depths and you’ll discover familiar enemies and iconic items, all brought to life in the Diablo III engine. Meanwhile, deep beneath the catacombs, the Dark Lord himself awaits any intrepid adventurer who dares to challenge him. . . .

       
      Discover Precious Loot
      What is a Diablo game without shiny new loot to call your own? Completing activities in the anniversary event yields unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets, and more.
      While some rewards are easy to find, others may have you scouring every nook or unlocking every achievement before you can get your hands on them. Can you earn them all? There’s only one way to find out!

       
      Your Journey Begins…
      Exclusive rewards and challenging enemies await you, but they won’t last forever! The cultists have begun appearing since December 31 at 4 p.m. PST, and the portal opens January 3 at the same hour. Both parts of the event end January 31 at 4 p.m. PST.
      Enter the dungeon, reap your rewards, and survive the evils within—or die in the process, never to be heard from again. . . .
