Minor note, build says Belt of the Trove in the Cube, but the guide later amends that as the belt of transcendence.  Just fyi

 

Neat build :)

Why are you choosing Swampland Waders when we're not using sacrifice?

For the damage bonus, (refer to the gear section).

Swamp Land WadersSwamp Land Waders are a well-known addition to LoN Witch Doctors, who completely disregard the SacrificeSacrifice properties of the item for the universally useful elemental damage roll.

Because of the +% elemental damage... This is a LoN build.

The skill reference should have the Cloud of Insects rune instead of Pestilence for Locust Swarm

Nice guide.

Just one curious question.

Why Phlebotomize rune for Spirit Barrage in the group build?

We already have it from Voo's Juicer legendary property.

Is that just no other available rune is relevant (for example Manitou).

Correct! The remaining runes either change the element or the mechanics of the skill, so it works out the best to simply double up on a rune you already have.

Wouldn't the Phantasms still deal cold damage even if the Well of Souls rune is used? The extra spirits would add more life and mana per hit.

many use andariel's visage instead of mask of jeram - presumably for additional 20% cold damage.

Guest Guest Question

What passive 5 passive skills should be activated (including the 5th one supplied by the Hellfire Amulet)? Can you have Rush of Essence as one of your selected passive skills and as the passive skill on your Hellfire Amulet?

Passives never stack so whatever is on your Hellfire AmuletHellfire Amulet should not be part of your 4 active passives.

Thanks for the information! I was confused because it mentions using Rush of Essence for the slot that the Hellfire Amulet frees up, but Rush of Essence was already listed as one of the four selected passive skills. I guess I am wondering what is the best passive skill for this build (outside of the four listed)?

The most common and recommended passive outside the four listed ones is Spirit VesselSpirit Vessel so you can avoid any downtime if misclicks or any other unfortunate events occur!

In the Greater Rift Group Progress tab, how do you use Sacrifice without summoning zombie dogs?

The rune Grasp of the DeadGrasp of the DeadDeath Is LifeDeath Is Life spawns dogs to sacrifice.

You should swap the Barber and Voo's Juicer around, you are missing out the bonus Spirit Barrage damage provided on it by not equipping it.

Do you mean in the Speed farming variation? If so, the build already provides sufficient damage, so lowering Spirit WalkSpirit Walk cooldown to take advantage of the SeveranceSeverance rune's bonus mobility through Nemesis BracersNemesis Bracers + In-geomIn-geom is preferred, and since you want The BarberThe Barber for stronger AoE, there isn't really space for Voo's JuicerVoo's Juicer.

      Some good news today, as the promised extra buff has arrived to Season 21 and we're getting double Horadric Caches! Each time you complete a bounty you'll be getting 2 chests, both affected by the difficulty you're playing at. This will not affect the Challenge Rift cache. The event starts in under an hour, at 8PM CEST, 11AM PDT.

      We also found out that future PTR test cycles will be longer, with an extra week of actual PTR testing when a new season comes.
      Double Bounties (source)
      Hello everyone –
      The trials this season brings upon a new event for the community. Starting from 11am PT today and through the end of Season 21, all bounties will be doubled. What does this exactly entail? All Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. This means that each time you complete bounties in an Act, you will now receive two Horadric Caches as opposed to just one. Double the bounty rewards!
      There are a few things to keep in mind with this effect:
      The bonus cache does benefit from difficulty level; it is essentially as though you completed twice the bounties. The rewards inside the Horadric Caches are otherwise unaffected; drop rates or the amount of individual rewards have not been altered. The bonus cache earned from Challenge Rifts is not affected; this is a separate type of cache.
      Check out our Game Guide for a list of bounty-exclusive Legendary items and more information on the Bounty system.
      On top of this, we would like to note that we plan on extending PTR testing timelines prior to each new season going forward. This will result in a slightly extended season, and will allow for 2 weeks of PTR testing for the community along with an additional week for the team to implement and work feedback/changes in before the season begins. The intention here is to make sure we can apply as much feedback as possible from the community during these PTR timelines while also giving us a good amount of time to test these changes before they go live.
      Thanks again. Happy slaying!

      After the recent Demon Hunter 150 clears, it's time for the second class to break that barrier in Season 21, as we now have a Barbarian max rift clear! Redditor Nexrate has done it, and done it twice it seems, as his first 150 clear was lost to some bugs on the leaderboards, but the second one remained.The build is a modified Rend Wrath of the Wastes, with Zei's instead of Stricken, using the seasonal power to clear everything up, with the big challenge being getting that snowball at the end (and aiming it properly) to finish off the boss in time, with the Coundiut before the boss spawned helping out a bit as well.
      As for the other classes, the closest is a GR 143 Necromancer, followed by a 142 Necro and Witch Doctor.
