I'm having trouble doing any damage with this build. I've got all of the items and skills listed, but it takes me ages to kill anything T10+. I've tried both the group and solo versions of the build to no effect. What am I missing?

I had the same problem. Then I came to the conclusion that this is more of a survivability build. It is not ideal for damage.

I'm doing good damages but my arcane runs out so quickly using twister.  Anyway to regenerate resource faster.

On the multi version: you should consider that the build requires at least one support who feed you with health globes for the reaper. If you just teamed up with random people you should go with the solo.

And on the solo version: I've only recently geared to DMO from FB, but I easily cleared GR55 with it without any AP issue. My current build for reference (not that it is anywhere near optimal, just for comparison): http://www.d3planner.com/523621847

The main thing for this build is that I don't cast ET manually. Of course if I'll have the AP generation required I should consider casting it between Etched Sigil casts to maximize the effectiveness.

The other is that if you go with channeling you should be wary of the attack speed bonus. Of course it's nice to cast faster but you'll run dry fast. This probably can be cured with APoC or higher generation/cost reduction, but since I currently go with Aquila, which requires constant high AP to work optimally and don't have the generation, I go without Pain Enhancer and probably going for Esoteric on higher rifts instead of Powerful or PE, at least until I find a viable solution to this which scales adequately

I just solod a 55 grift.  Damage is definitely not the downside.  I like the solo version for groups, too, if you don't have a monk/barb feeding you globes like mentioned in the guide.  So basically go with solo setup for grp.

 

If you don't have furnace, there is a sword that increases dmg 35% when channeling, too.  This is a very odd build, very situational.  You need to get as many twisters out as possible on elites but also have everything inside slow time.  channel disintegrate/arcane while setting up big fights

I will say if your grp does *not* have solanium, the posted grp build doesn't work that well IMO.  I spend too much time waiting on mana regen in a big fight without constant health globes.  I run with the channeling/solo version in most pugs. Since I'm a casual player that's pretty much all I run with =P.

APD
 

Each stunned enemy within 25 yards reduces your damage taken by 9–12%.

The Frost Novas triggered by the Halo of Arlyse in the Cube is considered a stun.

why dont you run crown of the primus instead of ancient parthan defenders?

 

You already take the best rune (the damage reduction one), and the other runes are only marginally beneficial compared to the scaling protection coming from APDs - they scale with the number of enemies you engage.

For the group build, I'm having a hard time with AP, after i cast the first 5-7 i basically run out.

I have all the right pieces and passives etc with apoc but no luck.

Is it 100% necessary to have globe feeders in the group?

 

seems like this guy makes it mandatory

http://www.diablofans.com/builds/69867-2-4-gr100-energy-twister

 

Otherwise i need really high density of monsters to get the AP regen going nicely, but by then they are already dead unless i play on a GR too high for my own good i imagine.

Definitely. This group build is out of the question without globe feeders.

True ... it is a damage type mostly beneficial if supported by globe creators. I have tried a similar build based on twister, and it is not a solo build. If you want a great solo build go for their build ... based on arcane orbs.

How do the guys on Season leaderboard run the group build in solo grfits?

I just don't seem to understand, even with +500 int on everything they still have no AP right?

With some changes this build is THE best build for solo GR's as Blatty has shown. Why is it not listed under Solo Endgame Builds??

The leader of the Solo GR leaderboard proves otherwise though ;)

Is there a peak to the solo channeling build? I am stuck at around GR 70 solo sad.png

 

Likely around 90? If you provide me with a link to your character, I can take a look and provide more specific advice. :)

is My build at the moment, doing 65 rifts alone. Doing 74 with another dmo  wizard. I need the ranslor to get density cause we play on ps4. I like the solo version of this because it looks lot like my build, would this solo build outperform mine? I do die easy atm, and I do need the wicked rune because, console! :) dmo set or tal rasha with a channeling build? What would be preferred?

Hey - you seem to have linked me a Firebird's build though? At the moment, DMO and Tal Rasha would both do better at an Energy Twister build, with DMO being the easier set to control in my opinion. I got a little confused by your 'channeling build' comment though - are you trying to build around Energy Twister, or a channeled skill (i.e. Disintegrate, Ray of Frost, etc)?

IMO this build is not usefull any longer, it does way less damage then other builds.

If you want to push Greater Rifts, I suggest you switch to another. Strongest one atm: Firebird / Archon.

      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.

      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.

      Hi all!
      New set item is better than the old one or the item's sinergy don't work well with the old set items? I know, my question is strange, but what is the common opinion? I know all the patch notes have info for set item changes, old ones have the new set stats, all set item is up-to-date in normal.
      But my Akkhan Crusader build is not working well. I have a new  Frydehr's Wrath & Blade of Prophecy . I have 1892paragon, have a good gear, good stats, right skills+passives, high leg.gems, cube is ok, caldesans etc. My dps is almost 4mill, but the solo 104 is my maximum (in a very good gr map).
      New ones is better like old ones? This is possible? Anyone in same feeling?

      An exploit involving the Legendary item Bone Ringer was recently discovered and as a result, Blizzard has temporarily disabled its Legendary power until a hotfix goes live and corrects the issue.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hey all,

      We recently investigated reports of an issue involving Bone Ringer. As a result, we will be temporarily disabling the item’s Legendary power until a hotfix can be prepared to correct the issue. We will update this thread once the hotfix is live.

      Special thanks to the players who reported this, and to everyone for their patience as we work on a fix.
