I agree...I definitely seem to be missing something about this build, one projectile from one mob almost one shots me w/o channeling and takes me to half health while channeling.

I figured it out, i wasn't igniting mobs. the melee mobs hardly touch me but the projectiles really hurt, like the goats that throw spears or the flying witches that shoot the red orbs, I have to speed past most regular mobs and fight only the elites and bosses, and i manage 80-90 GR so far. ty for the build, it has helped me unlock primal and keep my interest in the game.  I just need to figure out a way to protect a lil more from projectiles maybe.

Speed farm variation of this needs error correction. Few examples:

1. Weapon is said to be Aether Walker because "you drop the channeling aspect of the progression build" and yet shoulders still shown to be Mantle of Channeling.

2. Cube section recommends RoRG for "6 piece Firebird and 3 piece Sage" even though gear outline stipulates Tal Rasha.

Hi. I have a couple questions about the Tal Rasha Variation.

- I don't understand how it's supposed to be playable without Hergbrash's Binding in the cube. I simply cannot sustain the fire-rate for more than a few seconds without that belt.

- The Halo of Karini's drop rate is abysmal. What would be the next best choice in slot?

Storm Armor and the RCR on shoulders should cover the Hergbrash's - you can try running Ray of Frost - Cold Blood over Frost Nova if you want to play around with AP costs. Can also go for Arcane Weapon - Conduit, but you'll lose some survivability.

As for Karini, there isn't really a replacement for it. It's a massive boost to toughness. I'd recommend farming some GR keys in T13 and then using the Death's Breath to just upgrade rings until you get one.

Thanks for the reply.

I tried using Storm Armor +  RCR 7% on shoulders and gloves + Magic Weapon - Conduit + Astral Presence.

It's close but not enough. The arcane power still goes down. Ray of Frost or Hergbrash's seems to be the ways to go.

I've been using this variation for a couple days and it works VERY well:

And I got Karini... after spending a TON of Death's Breath. Funny thing is the ring is now dropping regularly for me.

It's like the probability of it dropping goes up after the first time.

I use Critical Hits restore 4 Arcane Power mod on Etched Sigil... can channel constantly most of the time.  You could also try Magic Weapon with conduit.

Hello, did you guys update for season 15 yet? Because I was trying to build Firebird top tier according to your site. I happened to check top Wizard GR's and almost everyone in first 500 people were using DMO set with Tornado. So isn't this the top tier anymore?

Thank you,

Spes

Got all items for this, in season 15, some of them even ancients... anything in grifts 50 that shoots me from far away two shoot my ass.

 

Over 622k life at the moment, I can do Grifts 70 but not without around 10 deaths inside the rift.

 

The damage is unreal but the defence/damage mitigation/thoughness of this build is a bloody insult to be honest, its the first time in the past 3 seasons I have a full items build char (and even with the right legendary gems at least at rank 25) that isnt even capable to doing Torment 13 related stuff without a problem.

I'm using this precise set with the right gems (upgraded around 80 each) and skills with also some Caldesans and my Paragon is 795 atm (joined diablo about 3 weeks ago) and my highest GR so far was 86 +5 (empowered with no deaths) in 7 minutes. Yeah, most of the items are ancient and properly enchanted, but i do find this as a good build. I did try several variatons of items and skills but, so far, this one seems the most fluid of them all. Well, you do have to know your moves with Teleport and take advantage of it, but once you get it, you'll just fly around T13 and grifts 70 will be douable in 2-3 minutes, solo. 🙂

Guest dwf

those who get 1 shot, check the following:

- are u using ice armor with halo of arlyse OR storm armor with halo of karini?

- unity on you and follower?  add esoteric alteration for more toughness

- you should be able to use teleport almost constantly (illusionist passive)

- forget trash, only kill elites

 

i'm using fb set, dont know if these apply to rasha as well

teaguk gives you dmg and surivability as well but i think esoteric is better to start with until u get used to the build

I'm a bit confused as to how the burning proc works. It says you need damage from 3 different fire skills, but this build only has two? (Torrent and Meteor) What am I missing?

The magic weapon with ignite is your third source of fire.

      The second and final week of patch 2.6.8 / Season 20 testing has ended and the PTR has been taken down. As we know the Season 19 end date is coming in just over a week on March 1st, it seems likely the new patch will arrive a few days later, or on March 3rd, if everything goes the same way 2.6.7 did. Following the same pattern, we should be seeing Season 20 itself 10 days later on March 13th. Hopefully we'll get the final patch and season notes a bit sooner this time around, but meanwhile you can check out the most recent PTR notes here.
      Season 20 PTR (source)
      Hello everyone,
      The PTR has been taken offline. We’ll be moving the PTR forums into read-only until our next PTR cycle.
      Thank you for your feedback and contributions. We’ll be providing updated 2.6.8 patch notes in the upcoming Season 20 preview blog.
      See you in 2.6.8!

      We're getting another Era reset with the new patch, as Nevalistis pointed out, which means the non-seasonal leaderboards are getting a wipe as well! This is very close to the last era reset which happened with patch 2.6.7 aka Season 19, and is a much shorter duration than the usual year-ish period they tend to last. Apparently the reasoning behind it is the big balance changes coming.

      We still don't have exact dates for the patch or the Season, with a high probability of a week in-between them as well, but we do know last season started 12 days after the one before it ended.
      Era Reset (source)
      We’ve been chatting about it, but I wanted to have a finalized answer before I responded to any posts.
      Given the balance changes we’re introducing to Patch 2.6.8, we agree an Era rollover will be needed. So, we will be resetting the Era with the launch of the patch.
      And in case you forgot just what exactly Eras were and what they do, here's the post explaining it:
      Eras (source)
      Hi, everybody. Wyatt Cheng here again with a second installment of Developer Chronicles. Today, let’s discuss Eras.
      When we introduced Seasons to Diablo III, we also debuted "Eras." The thinking was that while the seasonal leaderboard would naturally reset every season, there would be some players who would want the non-seasonal leaderboard to reset periodically as well. There is a certain excitement associated with a fresh leaderboard—a sense that you could maybe see your own name up there at the beginning of an Era. It can also be disheartening to see somebody who is not currently playing the game hold a top position on a leaderboard long after the record was set.
      As Diablo III has evolved, it has become clear in hindsight that while the fresh excitement is there, it doesn’t last very long. First, the Era leaderboard is not something you "climb." If you are capable of achieving a particular Greater Rift tier, you're likely able to replicate that performance, or very close to it, at the very start of a new Era. Second, between patch changes, item buffs, and Paragon levels, there is built-in power growth over time—the concern of somebody holding a high Era ranking long after they've quit hasn’t really materialized.
      Eras Going Forward
      It has been our plan for some time to stop advancing the Era count every time a new season occurs. Expect that to be the norm moving forward. We are looking to move Eras to be 6–12 months in length.
      Besides simply allowing Eras to be 6–12 months long, there is an additional circumstance in which we feel an Era reset will still be warranted: when we expect that the highest attainable Greater Rift is going to go down. As an example, in patch 2.4.2, we made changes to the Twisted Sword, Energy Twister, and crowd control mechanics that caused the highest cleared Greater Rift to go down. When we have strong reason to believe the highest cleared Greater Rift will significantly drop, we do need to advance the Era to keep the non-seasonal leaderboard from going stale. Though this was the case in 2.4.2, expect Eras to advance less frequently moving forward.
      This brings us to a related question. When an Era advances, is it done before a patch goes live or after? The answer to this depends on the intent of Eras. Previously we advanced an Era as soon as a Season ended. This was back when there were season-specific items. The Era would advance in order to record the state of the non-seasonal leaderboards before all the season-specific items were transitioned to non-seasonal. We no longer have season-specific items and there is greatly reduced value in trying to memorialize the leaderboards at that particular moment in time. However, when we expect patch changes to cause the previous top ranks to be difficult or impossible to beat, it makes more sense to advance the Era AFTER the patch has gone live. Advancing the Era before the patch goes live would cause some players to lock in high ranks that become unbeatable once the patch hits. Advancing after the patch goes live allows players in the new Era to compete in a fresh environment based on the balance of the current live patch.
      To summarize, seasons are for those who want a recurring fresh experience; Eras should represent periods of time closer to a year.
