Why area damage over attack speed on weapons?

 

Simply put, you have plenty: dual-wielding, Seize the Initiative passive, Alacrity passive, the Dashing Strike - Radiance effect. Some investment in AoE does this single-target heavy build wonders.

Hello, I got a question regardin the jewelery.

As is see the value in cubing unity, would Band of the Rue Chambers be a good damage alternative?

It should push your spirit generation by a great deal.

 

Would this ring be the best choice for a group setup?

Hello there just a guest here I followed some of your guide however I can now solo up to 50 by changing some things around which is simply having 2 pieces of uliana's set, ridiculous aoe clear and fantastic addition. The Flying dragon cube effect is also bugged it seems, I can't see any buff ever being applied from it

Im working on a hybrid of this build. I wanted to fet your opinion on my set up so far... I have the shen long set and im working to get the second ring for the rings in your build. I have the two mystic ally leg ability with the fire rune and partial innas set to enhance the mystic and my mantras. Would using air ally as a spirit generator be more beneficial than the light of heaven heal/spirit gen increase? Im basically crossing inna's set, the same shoulders and boots you use and the shenlong set so my spirit generator is incredibly powerful but i also have all mantras on at one time and two mystic allys that do 100% more of their passive ability. I have a string of ears once i cube the inna's belt im wearing into a chest piece . On battle net im Cromsies#1333

Thanks

I would also suggest to replace the Head, wich is not so important and the torso, wich is choosen only for the 10% firedamage and not for the costreduction, with the 2 piece bonus of the Ulianas Set. The result is every trash mob dies in seconds the more the better, everything arround you is just exploding.

 

At first i added the gungdo wrist to adding expoding hands but with the Ulianas 2 Set bonus the effect is spreading so fast that in result you dont need the Gungdo wrist. Now i added the krells wrist for immunity to knockback and stun as i see this as biggest problem when fighting.

 

And i added the exploding hand skill with the rune "the meat is weak" not to use it but to add the effect of the rune to the automatic effect of the setbonus for 20% overall damage for the group.

 

This build rocks its the best that i have played so far, looks and feels amazing.

Since my last post i have gotten a lot more of the required gear for this build. If used properly you won't need any exploding hand gear because this setup destroys all mobs. The CDR from leorics is invaluable because it allows epiphany to almost always be available. The only pieces of the puzzle im missing is the cindercoat and strongarm bracers for the cube and i can handle torment x and grifts 40+. My hellfire ammy rolled with the skill that prevents death once every 60 seconds, pretty useful until i get another unity ring. It would be nice to find a chest piece that outclasses cindercoat for this build.

Heya, (hopefully) quick question. How are you supposed to get to 75% cooldown reduction (needed for epiphany permanence) with this build? I feel like I must be missing something (I'm reasonably new to Diablo). BoY 20%, helm 25%, gogok 15%, hands 8%,  shoulders 8%, paragon 10% = 62% cdr which isn't *too* far off, but it's still 8 seconds or so of very reduced tank and mobility. Am I missing something, or are you supposed to just play around that? Otherwise the build is very fun. =)

It's a downtime you have to work around, sadly. smile.png Glad you're having fun with the build!

Could also roll CDR on rings and weapons. Each fist can have up to 10% cdr and each ring can get 8%. That's a lot more cdr to fill that gap to 75%!

How about using two pieces of Uliana along with this build in a way or another? As it applies the exploding palm and maybe could be somehow benefic to it? It hit me today while grinding with for items for this build with half of Uliana equipped.

With the upcoming changes to the two-piece set bonus of Raiment of a Thousand Storms (spirit generators do 100% increased damage down from 300% increased damage) is this build dead or am I missing something?

 

I will answer my own question: I was missing the inclusion of the Inna's Set.  With it this playstyle still rocks.  

 

Continuing to answer my own question: With the Inna's set this build is much stronger than the old version.  It seems amazing strong.

I must say, that I am very happy to have saved every ancient items in the past, and I was hereby able to equip more or less a complete build following this guide - and so far it is awesome and I have lots of fun with it. GR lvl45 takes approx 5 minutes to complete, only run speed limits it to complete faster - so farming legendary gems to augment items this way is excellent smile.png

The guide mentions that Single resistance is a favorable roll on the Inna's belt. However, this is impossible due to the fact that the Inna's belt (Inna's Favor) will always roll with an All resistance primary.

Thank you for the correction, this is indeed the case.

Why are crudest boots recommended in the cube, when mystic ally isn't in th build? Seems dumb.

 

Seems like you either don't read or you're legitimately the dumb one lol. Inna's 6 set bonus gives you damage based on however many mystics you have out, which is automatically all of them from the 4 piece bonus and then that number doubles from the boots..

The six set automatically makes 5 allies appear even when the skill isn't on the bar. And the boots doubles the number from 5 to 10.

I was thinking about this. Why not use focus and restraint instead, then you can get a hellfire amulet with the exalted soul passive, 50 more spirit is alot more dmg i would assume? the spirit regen would be nice to. I do see the whole unity thing falling apart but... is it worth it...?

It'll bring more damage to the build for sure. Losing Unity will hurt like hell though, I'm not sure you'll survive GRs past 70-75. :/ Let me know if it works for you though!

      On January 12, Blizzard temporarily disabled the Legendary power on Bone Ringer, because the item's bonus was not cleared upon entering a Greater Rift. A hotfix went live that fixes the issue and the Legendary effect is active once again.

      Diablo didn't have any announcements at last year's BlizzCon and many wonder what's next in store for the franchise. Back in December, we wrote about analysts at Goldman Sachs predicting a new Diablo title by 2020. Redditor Leviathan111 recently released an interesting speculation video, where he explains how a PTR item hints at the iconic Druid class from Diablo 2.
      Diablo Game Designer Sean White tweeted about a PTR secret that nobody found back when Patch 2.6.1 was playtested. In a series of tweets, it was revealed that the secret was related to Djank Miem, the set vendor on PTR. Leviathan bought an item from said vendor that usually contains items for non-Necromancer classes. Instead, he got a Muddied Parchment with the following flavor text: 
      The words are illegible from the elements and what appear to be claw marks.

      Another hint at Druids are the Fiacla-Géar wings rewarded from Season 12. Their flavor text reads as follows:
      Don't let a druid see you wearing these wings, as they may think you killed one of their brethren. (Source)
      At some point during the development, they were known as Seraphim Wings according to Diablo Wiki, not Fiacla-Géar. We don't know if Druid was or still IS planned for Diablo 3 as a DLC (similar to the Necromancer), but these facts sure are interesting! Let us know what you think in the comments!
      Props to @Deadset for bringing this up!

      Blizzard is currently working on some behind-the-scenes updates for Diablo 3. While there is no new content on this PTR, there's a fair amount of risk to deploy them to live servers without testing. The chance to find Legendary items has been increased by 2,000% for testing purposes on the PTR.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We are working on some behind-the-scenes updates. Since some of these involve a fair amount of risk, we need your help testing them before we deploy them to the live servers!
      Join us starting today, January 16, for a special PTR that includes these updates. Along with this, we are looking for reports of issues that occur when players attempt to start or join a multiplayer game, or communicate with other players through in-game chat.
      We encourage players of all types to participate, so what are you waiting for? Download that PTR and hop right in!
      A few important notes:
      There is no new content included on this PTR. While you will be able to copy your existing characters, we will also be activating the 2000% Legendary Find buff to encourage participation. As a reminder, any progress made on the PTR does not transfer over to your live account. Since this PTR is exclusively focused on identifying and fixing bugs related to the issues noted above, we will only be opening the Bug Report forum during the testing period. Over the course of the PTR, server performance may vary. This PTR will only be available for a limited time, and we’d greatly appreciate all the help we can get in testing it quickly and with as many participants as possible! We hope you have some time to help us out. If you need more information on how to participate on the PTR, visit our FAQ or see below for details.
      How to Participate PTR Character Copy Thank you, nephalem, and we’ll see you in Sanctuary!
      HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
      To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached your Battle.net account in good standing (i.e. it hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so.
      Step 1: Create a PTR account. To create a PTR account, log in to Battle.net Account Management and double-click on your Diablo III game license; this will bring you to the game management page. On this page, click "Create a PTR account." 
      If you've participated in any previous Diablo III PTR (including the Reaper of Souls beta), the "Create PTR account" button may not appear. This is because you've already created a PTR account and can therefore skip this step.
      Step 2: Once you have created a PTR account, installed the Battle.net desktop, and logged in with your Battle.net credentials, select "Diablo III" from the main menu on the left-hand side of the application.
      Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.
      Step 4: You should now have the option to install and play the PTR.
      The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate.
      PTR CHARACTER COPY:
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
      Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out.
      Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.
      Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)
      Step 4: Select your region.
      Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.
      Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client.
      Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play.
      Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
      As this is a test server, please anticipate uneven game performance, and note that restarts and downtime may occur without warning.
