Hey man love your builds.

How would you say this one compares in clear speed to the multishot build?
I've been using your multishot build since you added it and it's a monster. This one certainly seems fun but I'm curious how the compare. This one is obviously more single target damage focused though

Not sure if this is bugged or not but the Night Bane rune for shadow power doesn't give you a permanently active slow. It's only for 5 seconds after you activate the skill even with the 4 set bonus.

Something bothers me with this build, how come it doesn't say anything about the quiver "spines of seething Hatred" which turns you chakram into a generator which can replace bolas??? otherwise the rest is really good besides the lack of paragon point allocation, good job!

First off. I mean no disrespect. Loving this build guide.Just curious what you tonn. I'm using strongarm bracers instead of new helmet. (Haven't found it yet) and also using elusive ring instead of COE. Thoughts?

Also, what about the new travelers pledge set? Possible good alternative?

So, I don't have the full build yet, but I found a good setup while working towards the final end game.  With this setup I still get regular damage in the hundreds of millions, and crits in the billions.  Point of note, here's the pieces I'm missing/still looking for:

 

Dawn, Restraint, Chain of Shadows, Visage of Gunes, Wraps of Clarity (I found one of these around level 15, but it is not good enough for the build, so I have it cubed for now).  Also don't have a Hellfire Amulet yet, but the setup I have now should allow me to farm out some hellfire amulets on Torment 7 or 8. 

 

So there are some pretty vital pieces here missing..  that sucks...  But I have the full Shadows 6 piece, and I have Lord Greenstone's fan.  These two pieces are still enough to get you to about T5/6 but at that level squishiness is a real issue.  I was lucky enough to find The Compass Rose and Traveler's Pledge, so I am using them both currently while I look for Restraint and a Hellfire amulet.  In My cube, since I don't have Dawn, i'm using Spines of Seething Hatred, and that allows me to use Chakram as my generator for a little bit more AoE damage.  Also have Wraps of Clarity in my cube for the defense buff.  I have Focus, so I'm wearing that, it's a mediocre roll, and could be better for my Belt i'm using The Witching Hour with Vit, AS, %life, and CHD.  On my quiver i've got The Ninth Cirri Satchel ancient, with Dex, Vit, CHC, AS, and CDR.  Bracers I'm using Custerian Wristguards for now with Elemental Damage %, Dex, Vit, CHC.  None of my gear is really optimized yet but with this setup I can still make it to T 7/8.  This should allow me to start some farming to start optimizing gear. 

 

Thank you Deadset for the build post.

Thanks for this build, would love to see paragon point allocation as well. I went from struggling to do just about anything to blowing T5 up without any of the Cube items OR jewelry. So needless to say I can't wait to get these and continue dominating. Thanks!!!

Some points from the questions above:

 

1) Added Paragon allocation. Sorry for the omission!

 

2) I have generally avoided Chakrams as a generator due to their inferior generation potential (4 compared to 7) and lack of a slowing/CC rune.

 

3) There is a possible build with the Endless Walk set that focuses purely on Impale, but you will be severely lacking on AoE clear.

 

Thank you guys for commenting!

I've had no luck getting good gear with lightning% damage, but I do have good cold% on the required items. Would taking the Over penetration cold rune for impale be a suitable alternative to Ricochet in a multiplayer game where you can afford to go without fan of knives?

All resist isn't an option on Shadow's Mantle chest or legs. Life % and Armour instead, I assume?

I tried this build and found out it was pretty good, but I wonder why you don't simply place Lord Greenstone's Fan in the cube and replace your main weapon with something that does a lot more damage...
I tried this, and found my dps improved alot... Maybe there is a downside to this that I am not seeing (except for the normal cooldown of Vengeance)

I've been using an alternative option for jewelry : Traveler's pledge + Compass rose + CoE + Elusive ring. The Endless Walk bonus is almost always at full 100% damage with this build, since moving with vault does not reduce stacks. Also, the elusive ring damage reduction should be up 100% of the time too.

 

So basically, with this setup, you trade hellfire passive + 12.5% damage (2.25x vs 2.0x from jewelry set) for 60% damage reduction from the elusive ring. If you feel survivability is an issue, that's a pretty good tradeoff.

 

When I'm not doing very high grifts, I also like switching awareness and thrill of the hunt for tactical advantage and blood vengeance. The movement speed boost and increased hatred regen (as long as you can kill stuff fast enough to generate a good quantity of orbs for the damage you do) boosts clearing speed without changing too much of the build

For those playing HC, rorg in cube and equipping either visage or beckonsail and cubing the other is the way to go. 2up is quite powerful in higher grifts given the dive type gameplay.

The lack of 100% Vengeance through Dawn (with minimal CDR stacking) seems like a rather massive drawback.

Incidentally, I have been using this spec for a while now thinking that I hit jackpot. Really strong stuff if you don't mind the constant clicking and one-shotting elites/guardians is always a plus. I do have one question for the main hand though (and excuse the ignorance since I haven't played diablo in well over 2 years). I have been using unique_sword_1h_018_x1_demonhunter_male.Born's Furious Wrath at about 3k dps. Wouldn't that be providing better dmg overall? I've also been using the set of unique_ring_013_x1_demonhunter_male.pngThe Compass Roseunique_amulet_008_x1_demonhunter_male.pnThe Traveler's Pledge   which seem to add a decent bit of survivability/dmg.

All cooldown requirements can be replaced by cubing an obsidian ring of the zodiac. This releases the helm diamond and the CDR item properties to switch for large amounts of Crit% or whatever.

 

Losing just CoE in exchange for 23% life and 4+ item properties is advantageous.

I'm finding it a little slower thanks to the reduced crowd control ability but not by much. It's only really big swarms (multiple fallen shaman and goons) that have caused me any real issues.

 

Being able to one-shot T8 rift guardians (with my sub-optimal version) is pretty fun laugh.png

I'm wondering why no love for Bane of the Powerful over some of the other gems mentioned (namely Taeguk, which I find too hard to personally maintain stacks on, or Bane of the Stricken)? It seems that this is pretty good after dropping that first elite pack. Right now I have mine at about 75 seconds long, so that's 75 seconds worth of 20% extra damage vs. everything, plus an added 15% vs elites. If you pushed yourself hard enough (or had the gem up high enough) you could get that bonus going pretty much constantly. It's basically an easily upkept 20% bonus damage to most mobs and 35% to elites. 

 

So I'm just wondering if there's a reason not to use this gem. I do realize that Taeguk also gives armor bonus, but again I personally find it a little too much work to keep the stacks maintained (by throwing impales and bolas into thin air). It takes me a little while to get to 15+ stacks, and then it's gone so quick. 

 

My current gems are Esoteric Alteration, Bane of the Powerful and Bane of the Trapped. 

 

Appreciate the advice here.. I am by no means an expert, so not suggesting Bane of the Powerful is the way to go vs Stricken or Taeguk.. just wondering why it didn't get mentioned as a good choice.

Bane of the Stricken is indeed recommended, and I rate it higher than Esoteric. Bane of the Powerful is a good gem, but sharply drops off in effectiveness once you are out of speedruns. As long as you stomp the content, it's a pretty good gem, but when pushing for progress fights start taking longer and longer, often causing you to drop the bonus. Taeguk is a pain to keep up, but once you get its rhythm it provides a consistent source of offense AND defense.

Awesome, thanks for the explanation. And while I'm at it, I'll say that I've followed a few of your guides to the TEE and they all worked way better than anything I could have come up with. This was the only one I was unsure about, but I understand now with your explanation, so I'll stop thinking outside the box.. hahaha. You are definitely the pro!

      It seems the fact that only Crusaders and Monks are getting new sets is bothering a fair amount of people and Nevalistis has replied to a forum thread titled "2 out of 7 classes are getting love!?", which is a pretty ironic title considering Barbarians are getting quite some affection this season as well (I suppose it's only love if there's sets involved... typical materialists!!1).

      The explanation goes into why this way of releasing updates to the classes was chosen and what other ways were planned and then scrapped (although the reason behind the initial limitation is clearly because there aren't that many devs working on D3, as is to be expected - and hopefully the rest are all on D4):
      Season 19 New Additions (source)
      This is pretty good summary as to why. We really had two approaches we could have taken to bringing new stuff to the game:
      Release smaller patches that have something for everyone Release larger, more focused (and ideally better balanced) patches for 1-2 classes at a time We’ve opted for the latter because we think it makes a lot more sense on a lot of levels; we can focus on a particular art style, gameplay is more consolidated, and we’re at less risk of breaking more things at a time while we work. We knew this approach could be divisive, which is why we called it out in the blog from August. We didn’t want it to be a surprise.
      Class Sets in Diablo III greatly impact skills and gameplay style. Each needs room to breathe (and be thoroughly tested) as they’re implemented. And if we need to make changes to the ones we’re adding after your feedback, we need time to do that, too.
      Trying to juggle seven all at once was just outside scope, especially as supplemental Legendary powers need attention too. I won’t pretend we’re going to get it all right, but pacing ourselves accordingly makes that at least a little more likely.

      Update: we're also getting a new pet and portrait frame in addition to the reurning rewards from Season 7!

      The next season's PTR will be up this Thursday and we have all the patch notes already! The big news is the new seasonal power, and it's a pretty solid one. The Pandemonuim effect will not only buff your speed and power (up to 50% speed and 100% damage) based on killstreak, but also has a combo effect depending on when you choose to end your killstreak (from massive frost novas, angels descending to help and more). All the effects are listed below and will scale based on the GR level as well, making them (hopefully) relevant in higher GRs as well.

      We're also getting new sets! Crusaders and Monks will be getting them this season, with the other class ones arriving in later seasons, and there will be new and returning legendary powers that will synergize with the sets.

      Barbarians also get a lot of tweaks to their legendary items, hopefully addressing the issues players have had with the class.
      New Pet (source)
      I totally forgot to put this in the patch notes, but just in the interest of visibility:
      Added a pet and portrait frame reward for completing the full Season Journey for Season 19
      This is similar to the Galactic Wings that were available during Season 17 and in addition to the returning Season rewards from Season 7 for completing Chapter IV
       
      PTR Patch 2.6.7 (source)
      The one-week PTR testing period for 2.6.7 begins October 17 and we need your help to make Season 19 better than ever!
      We’ve begun introducing brand new class sets to Diablo III as outlined in our Ongoing Support blog, heavily revised several Barbarian Legendaries at the direct request of the community and continued to iterate on our approach to Seasonal buffs and how they can change up the overall gameplay experience. Take a look at the preliminary patch notes below and start theorycrafting; Patch 2.6.7 will be arriving before the end of the year!


      PATCH 2.6.7

      Seasons
      Developer Note: One of the biggest pieces of feedback from Season 18's buff was that the Triune bonus didn't stick with your character while you adventured. With Season 19, we've altered course as well as upped the ante by experimenting with new mechanics to add an element of both chaos and power to the battlefield. It should feel a bit like Pandemonium, and it may be a consideration whether or not you want to reset your total kill streak for a particular killstreak bonus versus continuously maintain the overall effect (especially as the highest level killstreak rewards will be harder to leverage in situations like Greater Rifts). Killstreaks with higher kill count requirements are more powerful, and we're looking forward to seeing what players think of and do with them! The buff for Season 19, the Season of Eternal Conflict, has been added Pandemonium For the duration of the Season, all players will have a stacking buff that that persists as long as you have hit or killed a monster within the last 5 seconds Each stack gives 0.05% movement speed and 0.1% bonus damage. This bonus caps at 50% movement and 100% damage (1000 stacks) In addition, after reaching a certain number of kills in a row, a power is unleashed, dealing an amount of scaling damage based on player level and difficulty or Greater Rift level: 15 Kills: Five massive energy twisters are unleashed 30 Kills: Dark Geysers form beneath enemies 50 Kills: Exploding Chickens seek and destroy 100 Kills: Corpses rain from the sky 150 Kills: A wide Frost Nova freezes enemies 200 Kills: Treasure chests fall from the sky 300 Kills: A ring of fire engulfs everything 400 Kills: Meteors hail from above 500 Kills: Angels descend upon the battlefield to fight for your cause 1000 Kills: ??? Powers are tracked at a group level; this means only one power can be active in play at a time, regardless of the number of players in a group Return to Top
       
      Items
      Developer Note: With Patch 2.6.7, we are beginning to roll out new class sets for every class in Diablo III. For the Season of Eternal Conflict, we're focusing on the two classes that embody the Light and wield some form of Holy elemental damage: Crusader and Monk. You'll also find a handful of retuned or newly added Legendary powers intended to synergize with the new class sets. We did a lot of community research into which skills were most requested by players as well as most underrepresented in current builds, and we hope you're as excited as we are for these new gameplay options. The other class sets will be coming in later patches, so if your class isn't represented this time around, fret not—they're coming in a future patch! You'll also notice a significant number of Barbarian item changes in this patch. While the Barbarian class set will be coming at a later date, we have very much heard the War Cry from our dedicated Barbarian community and implemented a number of changes heavily inspired by extremely thorough feedback. While not every suggestion has been taken at a 1:1 parity, the thoughtful analysis helped guide us to changes we could implement in this patch. Thanks very much to the community members who expressed their concerns in a respectful, constructive manner. It's very helpful, and we greatly appreciate the thought and effort that went into making your voices heard! New Crusader Set: Aegis of Valor 2-Piece Bonus: The charged bolts from Fist of the Heavens has a chance to cast another Fist of the Heavens 4-Piece Bonus: Hitting with Fist of the Heavens reduces damage taken by 1% for 5 seconds. Stacks up to 50 times 6-Piece Bonus: Increase the damage of Fist of the Heavens by 10,000% New Monk Set: Patterns of Justice 2-Piece Bonus: Sweeping Wind gains the effect of every rune 4-Piece Bonus: Each enemy within Sweeping Wind increases your movement speed by 5%. Stacks up to 10 times. 6-Piece Bonus: Attacking with Tempest Rush while Sweeping Wind is active will temporarily increase the size of Sweeping Wind after hitting over 30 times within a short period. Sweeping Wind damage is increased by 10,000% Darklight Fist of the Heavens has a [45-60%] 100% chance to be cast twice. Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Fist of the Heavens by [200-250%]. The Eye of the Storm New Legendary Power: When Sweeping Wind hits exactly 1 enemy, its damage is increased by 100%. Vengeful Wind Increases the maximum stack count of Sweeping Wind by [6-7] 10 Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Sweeping Wind by [250-300%] Chantodo's Resolve The scaled attack speed damage bonus to Wave of Destruction has been reduced Developer Note: This is a reactive adjustment from an earlier change to how Wave of Destruction receives a bonus from Attack Speed. The buff that resulted from that change was more than we expected, so we're reigning it in. Wrath of the Wastes 6-Piece Bonus: The damage bonus now also applies to Rend Lamentation Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Rend by [150-200%] Ambo's Pride New Legendary Power: Attacking with Whirlwind also applies Rend and the total damage of Rend is dealt over 1 second Remorseless Hammer of the Ancients has a [25-30%] chance to summon an Ancient for 20 seconds New Legendary Power: While both Wrath of the Berserker and Call of the Ancients are active, Hammer of the Ancients deals [200-250%] more damage. Fjord Cutter You are surrounded by a Chilling Aura when attacking. New Legendary Power: Seismic Slam attacks 50% faster and also deals 100-150% increased damage against Slowed or Chilled enemies Bracers of Destruction Seismic Slam deals [400-500%] increased damage to the first 5 10 enemies it hits. Fury of the Ancients Call of the Ancients gains the effect of the Ancients' Fury rune and your Ancients attack 100% faster Bone Ringer Now has a cap of 60 stacks. Developer Note: We never intended for this item to be used in a way where you farm stacks for an egregious amount of time (5+ minutes) and then watch all their health disappear in less than a second. It's not an engaging style of gameplay, and we don't want that experience to be the best way to play the Necromancer.

      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 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.

      The drop chance of Legacy of Dreams from Greater Rift Guardians will be increased in Season 19. A suggestion has been passed on to the dev team to include the gem, which replicates the Legacy of Nightmares buff, in the Haedrig's Gift cache.
      The increased drop chance means the gem will have a higher priority to drop from the Greater Rift Guardians as outlined in the blue post below.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello everyone,
      In this post I just want to discuss my views on two different approaches for starting a season, and why adding a reworked Legacy of Dreams gem to the 3rd Haedrig reward makes sense.
      As noted, I feel there are two sorts of progressive players in D3. First, you have players that want to take sets, whatever is the most powerful, and just go for it out of the gate. Next, you have a group of players who prefer the slow grind of gathering different pieces of loot for a more player driven build.
      Right now, the first option is the only relevant option if you want to compete out of the gate.
      By allowing Legacy of Dreams to drop with Haedrigs gift, and re-balancing as a level 50 max gem rather than level 99, you fully open up the option for players to hit the ground running with Legacy of Dreams.
      I see absolutely no negative to these two changes, but wanted to see what the community thought?
      Thank you!
      That’s certainly a thought. I’ll pass the feedback on to the development team.
      I will note, however, in the next patch, we are going to increase the drop rate for Legacy of Dreams from Greater Rift Guardians. It’s a little low currently and hopefully that will help with the feeling that this gem is too scarce. We’ll give that a go first and see if we need to re-evaluate after.
      Is this to be interpreted as making it drop sooner when you first start collecting the gems?
      Correct. While you’ll get it eventually even with bad RNG by process of elimination, this change should make it more likely to drop sooner rather than later.
      Again, not guaranteed; random is still random and bad luck still happens. But it should be better after the update.
