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.

So i dont understad the thing with "best in slot" and "alternetive" when choosing between immortal or reakor set. I mean dosent some set bonus change even though the text says i can choose what to use.

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.

      Blizzard today posted an update about their plans for Diablo at this year's BlizzCon. They are working on multiple different Diablo projects right now, but more details will be revealed when the time is right.
      It appears that BlizzCon will primarily focus on the Nintendo Switch version of the game and they are not ready to unveil Diablo 4 just yet.
      Blizzard (Source)
      BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show. These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right.
      We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that “good things come to those who wait,” but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
      While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
      November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
      Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
      We’ll see you in hell . . . and at BlizzCon!

      Update: As mentioned in the comments, the contest is only available to residents of the USA, Canada and Mexico (and not even all US states).
      The Switch release of Diablo 3 is bringing some new events to everyone, as we're getting an interesting scavenger hunt, both of the online and real world varieties! The rewards vary from Switch console and D3 bundles, to just the game, as well as real life Diablo themed weapon replicas. The Diablo twitter account will be posting hints for the scavenger hunts in the coming days, and you can read up on the detailed rules below:

We’ve hidden items across the internet (as well as in a few real-world locations), and it’s up to you to find them. Don’t worry—we’ll be giving you some clues on where to look. Learn more below!

      In the coming days, we’ll be sharing some clues on our Twitter page. Once you decipher them, visit the corresponding location (online or in real life) to find an item or QR code. Click the link or scan the item you found, and you’ll be whisked away to your collections page, where you can track all the items you’ve collected so far.

      Among the prizes up for grabs are copies of the Diablo III Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Bundle, digital copies of the game, and various collectible goodies. You can also earn real life versions of some of the items you’ll find on the hunt! These are one-of-a-kind artifacts, brought to life by the crafting masters at Volpin Props.
      If the idea of having your very own real-life Legendary item sounds appealing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and be on the lookout for the first clues.
