Deadset, thank you as always for the great guides on Icy Veins. It is greatly appreciated. I always tell my clan mates to come here first for ideas.

 

I am doing this Crusader build this season (#10) and am really enjoying it. I have done a Invoker thorns build many times and wanted something different. What do you think about having 2 pieces of Invoker with this build? Right now I have the shoulders and bracers and I'd like to think that the 15 yard aoe of the 2 piece Invoker set helps a bit clear the trash. But, I am not sure and wanted your opinion. I can see having another passive via a Hellfire amulet might be the way to go to drop Invoker.

Unfortunately the build is not up to date as the set bonus of the sage set has been changed after go live.

But other than this I really appreciate the guides and work with them every season as I don't have enough time to figure all the stuff out by myself.

Sage is fine, just look at some other items. Still drops 1 extra death's breath.

I am using Bluddshed's variation of this with 3 pieces from the Invoker set. Gloves, Bracers, Helm, but still find it hard to play T13 group. simply not enough damage, although I have level 73 Boyarky's chip and 233K sheet thorns damage with 13.9k strength. :-( Group T13 is only good with goldwrap relying on others killing the bulk of it...

Any other ideas about speed farming T13 bounties? I am stuck with Roland's. Which similarly has no damage, but at least survives.

Much like the LoN variant of the build, it is possible to work in Heart of Iron as well by switching the Hellfire (Indestructible) to Talisman of Akkhan, and wearing Leoric's Crown and either Aquila or HoI, and cubing the other. This setup would arguably be better than the current one presented by the guide because unlike its LoN variant, the Akkhan set bonuses allow for permanent up-time of Akarat's Champion: Prophet, and the second cheat death provided by Indestructible is not really necessary; trading it for HoI provides much more damage.

Actually, having Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan instead of Heart of Iron might be more damage

For anyone wondering about this - there are two Sage sets. You need the level 70 one, otherwise it won't have the DB set bonus.

5 Akkan + 3 invoker (3 Invoker for more toughtness) with RoRG with 6+ stacks of Invoker set bonus deal more damage than in LoN build

      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:
      Legendary Hunt (source)
      Whether you’re a Diablo veteran or a complete newcomer, chances are you love treasure. To get you in shape for Diablo III Eternal Collection on the Nintendo Switch, we’re inviting you on a treasure hunt. Get ready to stretch those loot-chasing muscles and get your hands on some sweet (and very real) rewards! 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.
      The items you find earn you entries into a prize drawing, where you could win all kinds of amazing treasures. The number of entries you get for each item you find varies on its quality, so keep an eye out for those Legendaries!

      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.

      Think you have what it takes to solve all the clues and hunt down these treasures? There’s only one way to find out, nephalem! Good luck on the hunt, and may the best adventurer win.
