How about the Gem of Efficacious Toxin? it's not mentioned anywhere so I'm not even sure if it works with this build, but it seems like a strong DOT, that would suit well here.

It can be used, but the way damage numbers of skills grew with recent patches, damage multiplication gems (Bane of the Trapped, Stricken, etc) have eclipsed damage proc gems (Toxin, Mirinae, etc.) If you want to give Toxin a go, you can use it in low GRs in the place of Esoteric.

What about putting Wormwood in cube and using hex or other damage amplifier in place of. Does ring of emptiness gain from this setup?

I'm pretty sure Ring of Emptiness will trigger from a Wormwood and it's an option to consider when speedfarming (one less spell to think of/cast). I think the loss of a Furnace will be quite brutal in Greater Rifts though, it's basically a separate multiplier in this build vs. anything Hex can offer in the form of additive damage.

Recently I switched to this build but I decided to opt out of the queztacotl helm and use the mimic helm along with wormwood in the cube. Basically allowing me endless mana and spamming haunt and other spells on cd. Haunt and your harvest are the real damage and an entire room with locusts and not having to cast to waste the mana is nice. The 2 mimics staffs give off the locusts for me, probably going to drop vile hive all together because it's just not needed with this setup and I've been pushing grift 70 solo with about 5 minutes left.

I am struggeling with the first choice-enchanting.

For example: +15% Haunt vs Piranhas vs Locust Swarm or +resistence vs all elements vs +armor or +x amount after each kill vs + vitality.

Any advise availible?

You should be able to see all of your enchanting needs in the gear section. It lists the priority for the first 5 stats. What pieces exactly are you struggling to work out the priority with?

Jade Chest, shoulder and offhand - +15% Haunt? +15% Locust Swarm? +15% Piranhas?

The priority-order about this three is unclear to me.

In my mind it is Haunt>Locust Swarm>Piranhas. If this is correctly, I have to enchant this items into Haunt...

About bracers and defensive enchants:: has Armor priority above life p. hit and res. to all elements?

All three of the first pieces have Haunt Damage listed in their priority, so focus on that.

For the bracers, yes. Armor has a higher prio according to the listed priorities.

Hi, i've been playing jade doc for 2 seasons now. I have a few questions. I dont want to ask the D3 forum in case i get insulted :(

Currently i get stuck with a hellfire amulet with Pierce the Veil passive. Unsuprisingly it drains mana reserve fast thanks to haunt spamming but i cant get rid of it yet due to its ideal stats. I have no doubt that that my spells got stronger but no idea if Soul harvest gets the damage boost. I 'm wondering i've wasting time and reseources with PtV. 

1. Does Soul harvest benefit from it at all?

2. Do Haunt and locust and piranha DoTs benefit from PtV?

3. Regarding the Covention of Elements, i understand u concentrate element to procure a nuke, but say i spread my DoT spells to cover all 4 elements : fire locust, cold harvest, poison haunt, poison piranha (i hv to sacrifice physical). When Soul harvest consume the Dots, will it consume the boosted Dot or the applied rune of soul harvest? If yes, Does it only consume the boosted DoT worth of only 4 secs along with the rest of other unboosted DoTs? Frankly i dont fancy waiting 12 seconds till the chosen element show up. I much prefer harvest as much and as often as possible.

4. With the Ring of Emptiness, each new spells applied additional 300% damage to haunted + swarmed target but what of the haunt and locust already applied themselves? Do their DoT get the boost too? (I've wondering this question in case i want to build a LoN doctor with these 2 skills)

that is all. Let me know if i need to clarify my questions. Thanks in advance :)

No problem! If you have any other questions, you can always ask them over on our Diablo forum if it's more general, or in the guide comments if it's about a specific build.

Soul Harvesting will deal damage of the type selected by the rune of Soul Harvest only. All other rune choices are based on furthering Soul Harvest's damage, so you needn't concern yourself with them - and solely on using SH during the appropriate Convention of Elements proc (cold if you go with Languish, poison if you go with Swallow Your Soul).

@Deadset

Thanks so much for the great guides.

I had two questions as I played more of the soul harvest build.

1) How is the Soul Harvest/Jade Harvester set damage calculated?

My understanding from reading your guide is that it's something like this:

(Locust Swarm base DoT * %Locust Swarm elemental dmg bonus * %Locus Swarm dmg bonus + Haunt base DoT * %Haunt elemental dmg bonus * %Haunt dmg bonus) * 300s * %Soul Harvest elemental dmg bonus

Thus, say, if Locust Swarm and Haunt are both on a Poison rune, and Soul Harvest on a Cold rune, then one could aim to roll %Poison for amulet and %Cold for bracer to get a multiplicative bonus for all DoT's (rolling solely cold or poison). The downside is the efficiency of spreading, but either way you're spamming Haunt so it's not a big difference (particularly vs elites/boss). 

Also, if this is correct, even if you choose the Poisoned Spirit rune, wouldn't %Cold dmg still work just as well? (You mentioned rolling for Poison in the guide). Perhaps better, if you are running Vile Hive/Cloud of Insects (Physical), because the %Cold would apply to both DoT's.

I guess it gets a little complicated...

40%Cold only, Pestilence/Resentful Spirit

(LS*1 + Haunt*1.4)*1.4 = LS*1 + Haunt*1.96 = 1040 + 4000*1.96 = 8,880% weapon damage

20%Cold & 20% Poison, Pestilence/Poisoned Spirit

(LS*1.2 + Haunt*1.2)*1.2*1.25 = LS*1.8 + Haunt*1.8 = 1040*1.8 + 4000*1.8 = 9072% weapon damage

However, if you are rolling +%Haunt dmg on other gear pieces then the pure route is better.

2) I understand the concept of having both Haunt and Locust Swarm for casting rather than cubin Wormwood to allow for cubing The Furnace (offensive) or Vile Hive (defensive). However, I'm having a lot of trouble properly engaging enemies under the sequence of:

Piranhado->Horrify->Locust Swarm->Haunt spam->Soul Harvest

In particular, it's so much work engaging any group size larger than 3 (such as 5 elites) as Piranhado's range is not high enough. Also, I'm running out of mana all the time, which makes me unable to cast Haunt and subsequently Soul Harvest. This is particularly true using Locust Swarm for left click (it gets accidentally casted frequently), but using Haunt of left click means I waste Locust Swarm on the air instead.

Since Spiritual Attunement and %resource cost reduction are not part of the build, how do you manage your mana, particularly in large, open spaces with continuous strings of enemy?

Hai, I should be able to give some changes to this part having played lots of Jade!

First I would like to change up your order slightly:

Try this instead: Locust Swarm->Piranhado->Haunt spam->Horrify->Haunt spam->Soul Harvest

Basically start every large encounter with 1(never spam locus, just the 1) Locust Swarm then try to capture most of them with a Piranhado. This way the swarm is given the nessecary time to spread while you spam the haunt BETWEEN the 2 CCs you have.

Don't really understand your issue with "Accidentally cast", if things go off just swap the keys around or bind them to something else, Haunt is super cheap in mana relative to Locus Swarm which you can't afford more than 1 cast on per engage so if you happen to click that often needlessly, change your keybindings.

Once you are comfortable running up to a target, 1 swarm then swap between the haunt and your CC you'll start feel a lot more powerful since it calms the rotation down giving you a much bigger boom with having the Swarm being spread to 100% of the targets while you safely spam haunt while Horrify and Piranhado keeps them in place.

You can start practising the rotation with resentful spirits to get the extra haunt out but you'll really want the extra DPS from the poison variant later on in 70+GRs.

Regarding the mana part, I never have mana issues and do not put any paragons in mana or any reduction. When there is a large area with lots of monsters you simply move past them. Rifts are never meant to be about clearing all the monsters, you take out the Elites and move on so "pick your poison". Kill the largest pack in the room if you really want to kill something and there isn't an elite nearby but don't clear every single area, it is a waste of valuable time!

@gchao

Hopefully I'm not misunderstanding your query, but why is using a Soul Harvest rune of a different element to your two DoTs considered at all? You gain the benefits of all the skill's runes through the Jade set bonus. But to answer you more specifically, Soul Harvest's own damage is lesser to those of the DoTs, so item rolls should not be adjusted according to its damage. If anything, elemental damage rolls should be adjusted according to Haunt. :)

As for the rotation question, Arkpit answered in great detail - thank you for that! - and I agree with him, Locust Swarm should not be spammed at all, it chews through your Mana. I'm sure that once you get the Locust Swarm application down, you will not have Mana troubles anymore.

I wonder if the "cloud of insects" rune makes the "locust swarm", which is poison-based originally, damage as physical?

Thank you.

Hey great guide as always, I recommend you to everyone. Can you please clarify two things? On Shoulders it is recommended that Cooldown is more important than Haunt damaged but on the mojo its recommended that Haunt Damage is more important than cooldown. Am I missing something or is there a reason why? Just love knowing the fundamentals and you really know your sh!t!  :)

Also I do follow your guides to the letter, hence performing better than most other people my Paragon level and Higher I think anyway - I am close to 1.2K and maxed 86 Solo is that decent?

I know you know you stuff and put the time in to be the best, more than I ever could or will do.

 

Just a weird thing for me is my Sacred Harvester ancient of course with Calds Dis Aug at level 81 added, I have these attributes

1. Socket for Gift

2.1441-1781 Poison Damage

3. 993 int

4. 10% damage

5. 23, 115 Life Per hit

(total weapon damage is 2934.5)

But another one I have which has same stats but VIT instead, I die WAY more than I do with the healing (life per hit) - because I know your guides are ace and follow it to the letter usually, whats your thoughts on this? Stick with life per hit til I find a better Soul harvester or go to Vit? Weird that I can't clear 85, or get very close to it with the VIT instead of healing but with the healing as my 5th stat I passed 86.

Also I got 86 using the resentful spirits rather than the poison variation of Haunt (my gear happens to be cold bonus rather than poison as I used Pet Dr build before which really bored me). I am guessing I can get higher if I go with poison? And you mention the belt for fetishes rather than haunting girdle for survival, in higher GR should I stick with Haunting Girdle or belt of Transcendence? Please :)

And one last, if I go with the Extra DPS poison haunt rather than the resentful spirit extra spirit, do I need to make sure I have Haunting Girdle instead of belt of transcendence as obviously I would only get one spirit if I went poisoned spirit whilst wearing belt of transcendence.

I'm leaning towards it simply being an oversight, tbh. The only thing that I can think of specifically would be that it is easier to roll CDR on shoulders than it is on the OH, so it's more reliable to obtain the CDR you need.

LPH is far more forgiving. When you are in a tight situation, you will be in a position to simply spam your way out of it with some CC thrown in. With vitality, you can survive bigger hits, but when you are in those tight situations, you either need to run or die. I would imagine you are still playing in the way that you would with LPH. 

Positioning is probably the biggest problem.

I'd take Haunting. Yes, poison will probably push you higher.

      We've already seen 150ies, and even solo 150ies before, but this one is a bit special, and not just because it was done in under 12 minutes. If you haven't really played this season or pushed rifts properly this video has some really good commentary of all the calculations that go into a 150 solo clear. With each decision point on when to "use" a killstreak being discussed, aka when to down enough mobs to get to the next one, if and when to reset it to get the correct ones for the correct part of the GR etc, etc. It's really interesting to watch, especially towards the end where Laurcus even pauses the game to think how to best get to those angels that he needs to down the Rift Guardian.
      This video showcases just how different this season really is (if it wasn't obvious already) and it's definitely worth a watch, even if you haven't played in a long time, perhaps especially if you haven't, so go for it!

      Season 19 is half way done and we have about a month and a half left to summon those Uber Diablos everyone is so fond of, gather angelic armies to kill rift guardians for us, and all the other killstreak-related shenanigans Nephalem get up to. But the question now is when we'll find out more about Season 20, aka when the PTR will be coming. We know that the plan is to have a 2 week-long PTR this time around to iron out a few more bugs and we know the post-season break is now also longer, around a week and a half, and the season itself will probably be around 3 months in total (including the season break).

      When you put all that together, along with the usual PTR-to season launch timings so far, it seems inevitable we'll be seeing the next PTR up within 1, maximum 2 weeks, which is good news as we'll get to find out just what the two new sets will be, the new seasonal mechanic and new legendaries + tuning and more!
      We have some blue posts commenting on the subject, but it's the usual non-commital stance, with a reminder that we'll be getting a big blog about balance somewhere around the PTR launch, explaining the balancing goals and policies of Diablo 3 now and in the future.

      Title…
      Will it come:
      Soon
      Blizzard Soon
      Very very soon
      Is the year too fresh to ask for it? xD
      I guess everyone would like to know what sets+legendaries we will see and what season theme will come to Sanctuary.
      Peace
       
      Hey Mortred!
      We’re going to go with Option 1 on this one. We’ll have more communications in regards to PTR in the coming weeks.
      Thanks
       
      Balance Blog (source)
      Yeah, Matthew, what’s the ETA? stares at the email with the text awaiting review
      It’s in progress. I did the bulk of the writing before break with some touch-ups after coming back, now it has to go through the multi-phase preparation for release: verifying text with our development team for accuracy and tone (it’s here now), review with our editorial team for grammar and polish, delivery to our localization teams to be translated into all our supported languages, and then re-distributed to all our regional community managers for formatting and publishing. There’s also asset creation and review that happens in tandem, for things like headers and thumbnails or any in-blog images, all which follow a similar structure.
      Barring any unforeseen circumstances, it should publish before the release of the 2.6.8 PTR.
      We can also take a look at all the season durations so far for a more exact idea of the timing for S20, courtesy of D3resource:

The move itself was necessary to comply with GDPR and other online regulations and today is the due date!

      Look at me, necroing an old thread.
      As it’s most relevant here, the old forums are officially coming offline today to maintain our ongoing compliance with GDPR and other online regulations. We’ve been closely monitoring traffic to the old forums and many, if not all, of the threads most commonly being visited have been moved or recreated by the community here.
      Thank you for your patience and understanding as we’ve worked to keep our digital spaces “up to code,” so to speak. Happy New Year, everyone!

      We seem to be escalating the seasonal Uber Diablo 1000-killstreak spawns rather rapidly, after the triple spawn in a T16 rift the other day, their numbers seem to have tripled once again! Redditor NTariel and his crew really like the big red guy it seems, as they set to summon as many of his as possible, using a relatively common way to "save" the killstreak stacks and trigger them individually in a 4 player group. But let's get to the video itself first:
      Since there really aren't 9000 enemies in any zone, you may be wondering how exactly they did it. Well it's a bit of a weird one and one of those borderline things, but seems on the safe side of the exploit-o-meter. This has been used for a while in 4 man groups to save up the 400 killstreak Meteor proc and here's the process as described by NTariel himself:
      This season's main feature may well end up being a race to see who can summon up the most Diablos in one zone, but with the 9 we have already, it'll be tough to beat!
