Was your gear optimized? What level are your gems?

How does this build work without Hellcat Waistguard being in the game anymore?

? The hellcat is most definitely still in the game. I got two while leveling up my seasonal DH Thursday night, and another after I hit 70.

It's definitely not a great build.  I just gave it a shot with a 5 augmented ancients, decent rolls, and paragon 850.  Couldn't clear GRift70.  This build just doesnt do enough dmg overall.  I might be able to push GR80 with Primal weapons and great rolls on gear, but as an average build, GR65 tops.

I tried this build with full ancient gear, that I mostly took from my already existing Impale Build. Both weapons ancient with +12 discipline each. Paragon 806.

I was able to finish it kinda easily, but it does not compare to the Impale build, which I just completed a GR80 in less than 10 minutes with. It might be more useful when playing in groups, because it has high aoe damage, but I guess there are better classes for that. So no, this build is not the best for DH imo.

I dunno about that dudes, last season this exact build cleared GR102 solo and took the top spot on EU. 2 tiers ahead of Impale, so roughly 40% harder content.

I am struggling to get DPS out of this build - the survivability is good, otherwise. I have a feeling it is due on my part to a combination of poor stat priorities on my current rolled gear, and lower paragon (547). Gonna keep rolling to see if I can get better deeps.

The Impale Build is an excellent fallback build in the mean time while collecting better pieces of this set - great balance of DPS and survivability.

Two things concern me about this build:

(1) Hatred remains completely unused in favor of grenade DPS. This concern is obvious to any DH who's ever used this resource to cause DPS - I have a deep-seated urge to throw some cluster arrows in the rotation or something.

(2) The DPS appears very sporadic and unpredictable. Again, this may be a result of poor rolls on my gear. The remote AOE caused by grenades takes a little getting used to (versus the linear path of Impale or Evasive Fire), but this is very doable. The concern here lies in the damage itself: It starts sloooww and then picks up steam. If you proc'd from a previous group of mobs, some of this dps carries over, but not all of it - this curved increase in dps is what takes a bit of getting used to.

What I love about the grenades however, is that the damage is applied to everything in the area. With the Impale Build, you must cut through from the edges to get to the innards of a massive group of mobs. Grenades bypass this need with their remote AOE.

Deadset, quick question on gearing.  Given how dicey it can be finding an Ancient Dawn with a perfect 65% cooldown on Vengeance, what are your thoughts on cubing Dawn and going for an Ancient Calamity in the offhand instead?  How much damage would I be giving away?

This build tops the leaderboards along with impale/shadow so definitely works! In fact for last season it ended up winning I believe. I just ended up using calamity instead of buriza because I happened to already have a Dawn kanai'd . I guess the proof is in the leaderboard which tells me otherwise though.

Question about Bane of the Trapped:

I noticed that Fan of Knives is only a 1 second slow.  Even with CDR, I'm only using it about every 6 seconds.  Is bane of the trapped still a good choice?  If you only use Fan of Knives to proc it, does that limit the uptime?  And, are you typically fighting close enough to use the gems lvl 25 slow to self proc?

The new format on these guides is really bad. Why are we being forced now to go through multiple pages? It doesn't make sense. It's not 1998 anymore...pretty much everybody has broadband, so why not just load the full guide on a single page? If you want to build in hotlinks and shortcuts, that's fine, but just make them jump to the headings instead of completely different pages.

Please change it back to the old format.

The purpose of Fan of Knives in this build is defense and incoming damage mitigation. With the rune you get very important Armor boost, and it procs the Numbing Traps passive skill so that enemies hit with it have 25% reduced damage for 5 secs. Due to the very short 1 second duration of the actual slow, it's mostly useless for offense.

In GR pushing with this build, yes you will rarely be able to maintain >15 yds between you and enemies. This is because you want to remain stationary as much as possible to take advantage of the Endless Walk damage buff. The only way you could really keep a distance is by liberal use of Vault, but then that kills your damage output since you're relying on your Discipline pool to maximize your Unhallowed Essence six piece damage bonus.

Thanks for that.

Following up, I'd like to focus in on how bane of the trapped adds value to this build.  Does the numbing traps effect proc it?

After the 1 sec fan of knives slow expires, does anything other than the gem's 15 yard slow proc the damage boost?

 

Thanks

Having engaged in a spirited discussion with a friend on the effectiveness of the cubed buriza in this build, I decided to post this question on the sites that offer this setup.  So far I've only found a mismash of poorly explained (or corroborated) theories on if you target an area behind a line, or was it row, of mobs (can you even target the ground on the console edition?) or if you get a densely packed mob you can proc extra bouncing grenades or something?  Is this a thing?  How is the buriza actually working with the grenades since they don't pierce?  I'd love some legit, straightforward insight on this if anyone knows.  Thanks!  :)

I would also like an answer to these questions about Buriza. Any suggestions for an alternative cube weapon would be helpful too.

Slightly off topic, was half distracted when I read the title of this thread and thought it was for warcraft and that got me to thinking that DH's need grenades. It kinda makes sense with the high mobility and high-risk style of play.

Yup, checked 2016-2, not a single Impale in top ten.  8 of the presented build in those 10, but final #1 was a hybrid build.  My experience in Danetta version is that it vaults all over my Impale playing.

I second that!

I rarely come here anymore, it's a pita jumping around, loses the bigger picture of the build.  The website might be making more from the 'better placement' offered to more ads, but when the readership drops off....

I have about the same paragons, play the Danetta version, but I'm in the middle of the mobs with a maelstorm of 5 bounce grenades around.  Survivability isn't much of an issue.  From what I've read/seen, Danetta will carry you about into the 80s, good enough to solve those slot issues you and others mention.

This change wasn't made because of ads, but rather for search engine optimisation reasons. The change threw us to the top of the search results and is bringing way more people.
Similar change is being made to Hearthstone section, where some guides went from not being on page one to being the top result, dramatically increasing our viewership.
It is not only a significant boost short-term due to more ads, but also better in the long run, as it increases the amount of readers and therefore more returning users.

Should Google change its algorithms to make the previous layout have better results on google searches, we will revert the change. Not much I can say beyond "don't hate the player, hate the game".

How is this build anywhere near TOP at all?

You'd think a build marked with "TOP" next to its name and have higher ranking than Shadow Impale will out perform it significantly. And the result was rather disappointing, I ask IV to please take the "TOP" away from this build. This thing should be bottom tier. 

OK, after i got ancient Dawn, the situation is slightly better. The survival is very good, like, "I can stand on top of ground AoE and not die" good.

However, the damage output of this build, especially single target is mediocre at best. Even with 700 Paragon, Primal Ancient Depth Digger, CDR that allows me to maintain vengeance permanently, +15% Grenade roll on both belt and pants, +12 Disc cap on one of my weapon, and of course, legendary gems that are level 70+, I still struggle to DPS with this build beyond GR 70+, whereas my Shadow Impale build can easily walk through GR 80+ with little to no effort.

I even tried to switch Boar companion to Wolf, ditched Fan of Knives for +10% Crit trap, the damage output was still significantly worse than Shadow Impale. If anyone know how to make this build do more DPS, please, by all means, share with me. Thank you.

      Don't miss out on your chance to grab one!
      The only thing more elusive than a Rainbow Goblin in game is a Rainbow Goblin in real life, but here's your chance to grab one!
      To celebrate the Season of Greed, we are releasing a robust and thorough Goblin farming guide for your murderous, loot-craving pleasure! It will take you through a tried-and-tested goblin farming route, suggest some suitable builds and equipment adjustments for the purpose, and even shed some light on goblin farming metagame and etiquette.
      But enough talk - it's your turn to take blade and spell to their mischievous hides! While using our route (or your own!), take a screenshot with your Season 14 character and a double goblin spawn - and post it in the comments below. Your post will act as an entry in a random raffle to win one of the 20 plush toys we will be giving away.

      For the general rules of our giveaways, please refer to this post. The post-specific rules for this giveaway are as follows:
      You need to be on a Seasonal character. Make sure we can see your character and the goblins in the screenshot. The giveaway will end on July 2, 2018 at 23:59 CEST. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Winners will be chosen at random after the contest ends. Grab your guide, grab your nephalem and get finding! You might even be lucky enough to find a Rainbow Goblin in-game and outside - as Abd Al-Hazir put it - a ludicrous notion, truly!

      Check out our latest guides for Season 14!
      The latest season of Diablo, Season 14, launches today and we've prepared a list of all the best builds for you to get started with! Check them out and get ready for some greedy gearing with Deadset!
      Greetings, fellow denizens of Sanctuary! The 14th Season of Diablo brings a thematic concept to the forefront, starting off with the Season of Greed. For the duration of Season 14, all Treasure Goblin spawns will be doubled. While this won't shake the foundations of the established endgame, it will surely provide a handy treasure burst right at the start of the Season, as well as a shortcut to populate any of the missing cosmetic pets in your collection.
      -Deadset
      Non-Meta Fun Builds
      One of my side-projects during the Season 13 downtime was to investigate some of the more unorthodox build paths for all classes. This resulted in the addition of one extra, non-meta build per class - and more could come over the course of Season 14 if you find those diversions enjoyable!
      Seismic Slam Barbarian - a ruthless visual feast of a build, this cold-focused Barb spec is surprisingly tough and efficient; Shield Bash Crusader - your best bet if you want to pound demon heads in Greater Rifts, if a bit on the clunky side; Chakram Demon Hunter - the ninja star-throwing counterpart to multishotting builds, with comparable AoE and more fun visuals; Tempest Rush Monk - a fun and under-appreciated build that balances the fluidity of rushing through enemies with some carefully timed bursts; Generator Necromancer - a unique take on Inarius gameplay, focusing on lightning-fast scythe attacks and intensive resource interplay; Grasp of the Dead Witch Doctor - a no-cooldown, no-resource take on making corpses rain from the sky; Energy Twister Wizard - a surprisingly undervalued, but horrifyingly potent on the time-bending, whirlwinding destruction from seasons of yore. Why is Patch 2.6.1 a Great Time to Come Back?
      Patch 2.6.1 sees one of the biggest rebalancing efforts to the game since Patch 2.4, the strongest content Patch of the Reaper of Souls cycle. It builds on every good foundation set by it (class diversity, options for underused skills, the introduction of mechanically interesting items) and skyrockets it to post-2.6 damage standards. If you have ever craved a patch where multiple builds are considered top tier GR pushers and practically dozens of combinations are completely capable endgame farmers, this is the one.
      Basics Guides and Conquest Guides
      Before moving on to class impressions and recommendations, I just want to give a quick pointer to the new basics and conquest guides that I compiled recently. If you are new to the game, returning after a long break, or simply have friends that you want to get into Diablo, give those a read:
      Beginner Seasonal Guide - an introduction to Seasons, efficient leveling, crafting and gearing; Bounty Farming Guide - how, when, which bounties to do and the builds to do them with; Regular "Nephalem" Rift Farming Guide - quantity, quality, and methods for Torment rifting; Greater Rift Farming Guide - rewards, competition and strategic considerations for GRs; Conquest Guides for Season 14 - the fast track to the Seasonal Journey completion. As a guide hub, Icy Veins receives a ton of messages on a regular basis for topics like these - I hope they are of use to the community and answer a lot of questions for Seasons to come!
      Barbarians
      Beginner's Guide to Barbarians - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Raekor - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Barbarian with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Immortal King (or Raekor) - Hammer of the Ancients Endgame Build  - A top tier, visceral build that emphasizes melee devastation and pulverizes his enemies to the ground with Hammer of the Ancients. Support Barbarian - Group-oriented build that the entire team depends upon for scouting, long-range monster pulls and protection from harmful crowd control affixes. Raekor - Furious Charge Endgame Build  - A spec that mixes the powers of two sets, combining the all-around utility of IK with the agile Furious Charge devastation of Raekor. Might of the Earth - Earthquake Endgame Build - This spec favors devastating large areas over precise shots, exerts a masterful control over the battlefield and sports a very satisfying rotation. Wrath of the Wastes - Whirlwind Endgame Build  - With a playstyle distilled to its simplest essence, the build opens runs with  Whirlwind and mows enemies down in endless, spinning destruction. Frenzy/Thorns Legacy of Nightmares  - More durable than most Barb builds, this spec nails the brutal hand-to-hand melee feel, slicing enemies at incredible speeds. Rend Immortal King  - Nearly forgotten, but certainly not powerless, this exotic build bleeds enemies dry with the DoT powers of Rend. Crusaders
      Beginner's Guide to Crusaders - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Akkhan  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Crusader with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Akkhan - Condemn Endgame Build - This build is the embodiment of the melee spellcaster fantasy, exerting powerful crowd control over monsters and decimating them in waves of holy destruction. Akkhan - Blessed Shield Endgame Build  -  This build plays on the archetype of using the shield as a weapon, charging it with holy might and reaping an entire field of demons with a single, mighty toss. Akkhan - Holy Shotgun Endgame Build  - The Holy Shotgun Crusader is a tanky, impenetrable bulwark of steel that absorbs blows and retaliates in blasts of pure, radiant vengeance.  Blessed Hammer Seeker of the Light - The reigning champion of many Seasons, the Hammerdin build is still a beast in terms of AoE damage and solo GR pushing potential. Thorns Invoker  - Likely the tankiest build in the game that is able to push into GR110+. Tough, focused and dead simple, this build almost Thorns itself to the absolute endgame. Sweep Attack Rolands  - This Crusader build revels in high-density rifts, shredding demons to pieces with the highest attack speed possible to the class. Bombardment Legacy of Nightmares  - The Bombardment Crusader spec takes assorted legendary items into a highly mobile, auto aiming and visually spectacular Thorns combination. Demon Hunters
      Beginner's Guide to Demon Hunters - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Marauder  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Demon Hunter with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Natalya/Marauder Sentry Endgame Build - This build focuses solely on the Sentries, providing Demon Hunters with a cold, calculating playstyle cloaked behind a wall of turrets and animal companions. Marauder - Cluster Arrow Endgame Build  - Requiring a deep understanding of DHs - the need for positioning and strategic companion placement - this build rewards you with great GR potential. Unhallowed Essence - Multishot Endgame Build  - This build embodies the lone, brooding archer that reaps entire screens worth of demons in massive, fiery bursts of arrows. Natalya - Rain of Vengeance Endgame Build  - This build transforms the elegance of Strafe into a potent tool that resets the cooldown of Rain of Vengeance, resulting in a potent, bursty playstyle. Shadow - Impale Endgame Build  - The Impale build emphasizes on singling out and bursting down priority targets, resulting in a ninja-like, elite hunting playstyle. Grenades Unhallowed Essence  - A deceptively simple build, whose sustained grenade damage and tanking potential outdoes many of its flashier counterparts. Fan of Knives Legacy of Nightmares  - One of the more exotic specs in the game, the LoN FoK build thrives at low health values and turns them to its own advantage - playing with permanent crits. Monks
      Beginner's Guide to Monks - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Inna - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Monk with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Sunwuko - Wave of Light Endgame Build  - This unique ranged Monk playstyle blows demons up in screen-wide, incinerating beams of searing light. Support Monk  - Group-oriented build that the entire team depends upon for healing, short-range monster pulls and damage reduction from regular attacks. Uliana - Seven-Sided Strike Endgame Build  - Widely regarded as the most satisfying build of the class, Uliana enriches the Seven-Sided Strike visual with Exploding Palm detonations. Raiment Shenlong - Generator Endgame Build  - The Monk's bread and butter, this build pummels enemies into the ground with the sheer might of the primary fist attacks. Sunwuko - Lashing Tail Kick Endgame Build  - Building on the classic Monk image, this spec jump in, whirlwind kicks the demons' teeth in, and jump to the next pack of monsters. Exploding Palm/Mystic Allies Inna  - In this Monk take on a summoner build, you rally spiritual fighters at your side that burst entire groups of enemies with Exploding Palms. Necromancers
      Beginner's Guide to Necromancers - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Pestilence - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Necromancer with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Pestilence or Trag'Oul - Corpse Lance  - This build alternates long scouting sessions while waiting on cooldowns with the utter devastation once Devour meets Land of the Dead. Rathma - Skeletal Mage - If you like to keep a tight rein on your minions with precise commands, leading the menagerie of undead at your side in a resource-fueled frenzy, this build is the one for you. Command Skeletons Inarius  - Turning the skeleton warriors into a vicious, unrelenting superior to Bane of the Stricken, this build is a Necromancer's one-way ticket to the absolute endgame heights. Skeletal Mages Trag'Oul  - This is the alternate take on the Mages build, specializing in extreme speed farming, while still offering capable GR pushes. Bone Storm Inarius  - While it took an undeniable nerf, this build is still one of the most relaxing, farming-appropriate melee builds of Necromancers. Corpse Explosion Inarius  - An underappreciated offshoot to the close range Inarius variants, this build is among the most visually appealing and satisfying Necromancer builds out there. Witch Doctors
      Beginner's Guide to Witch Doctors - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Zunimassa  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Witch Doctor with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Arachyr - Firebats Endgame Build  - Requiring minimal upkeep, this build spins a circular, no-aiming-required wave of Firebats obliteration around you. Simple, neat, and utterly effective. Helltooth - Gargantuan Endgame Build  - This staple summoner build offers laid-back playstyle with automated minions, excellent sustain and protective options, and even some space for crowd control. Jade Harvester Endgame Build  - One of the oldest examples of interesting set execution, this melee spellcaster trades the safety of range and hexes for aggressive dives and DoT consumption. Zunimassa Gargantuan Endgame Build - This build thrives behind a thick wall of Fetish summons and is accompanied by lumbering, destructive Gargantuan brutes in a pure minion playstyle. Legacy of Nightmares Spirit Barrage Endgame Build  - Emerging from a convergence of obscure mechanics, this build offers a unique, spell-heavy, bursty playstyle that produces some of the most spectacular visuals of the class. Wizards
      Beginner's Guide to Wizards - Levels 1-70 and Guide with the Starting Set, Delsere's Magnum Opus  - A guide that will take you through the leveling process efficiently and optimize your Season 14 Wizard with the Haedrig's Gift free set. Firebird (or Tal Rasha) - Meteor - Reaching for the heartstrings of Meteor lovers, this build channels torrents of arcane energy to conjure destructive, burning meteorites into a pure visual feast. DMO - Frozen Orb - Combining the Frozen Orb nostalgia of sorceresses past with the forgotten power of Slow Time wizardry, this build leaves enemies helpless, watching their frozen death creep ever closer. Vyr Archon - The oldest devotees to the Archon playstyle: Vyr and its complementary Chantodo sets got an awesome boost of power in Patch 2.6.1. Tal Rasha - Explosive Blast - Aside from its distinct cannonade of arcane blasts, this build is very attractive to Wizards due to its ability to include Sage's set for materials farming. Arcane Torrent Tal Rasha - Spawning off the addition of Manald Heal this guide offers not one, but three very fun, tanky, non-Archon lightning variants to build around. Conclusion
      In short, Patch 2.6.1 is one of the best times Diablo 3 has experienced in terms of build diversity and sheer endgame potential. A living proof that pure numbers patches can sometimes work wonders. Have fun and good luck in Season 14 - I leave you with my hour-long overview of some of my favorite builds in the latest patch!
