Avarice doesn't appear to be a conquest this season cough cough...

Ah, you're right! Seems like it was removed for this season.

It would be awesome if this was a big disclaimer at the top of the article please. I feel like a complete idiot for not checking the conquest achievements tab in-game before nailing a 85M streak in the ruins and then wondering why nothing happened.

I've already put in a note for Deadset to add it to the guide. Sorry for that! Hopefully you can grab some of the other conquests just as fast.

I don't mean to be a prick, but there's genuinely no fucking point in having this Conquest up on the site. I've used Icy Veins for years and I have never come across something like this. Why even have it up? It's not here this season, we have no clue if it'll be around next or any season ever again, so why fucking have it up?

I'm more than a little pissed off, because I spent a good amount of the time even have preparing for this conquest, only to learn it wasn't even this damn season.

I'm just glad I found this out this soon, so I can try a different Conquest and not get shafted out of a stash tab.

Glad to see these conquest guides. This coming season  (14) will be the first time I try for an extra tab. Usually I spread myself too thin to do much more than get the season set,so I'm looking forward to it.

If we need about 43 caches on t13 to do this conquest, how can we open the extra 13 caches when our personal inventory has a maximum of 30 cache spots available?

Stay near the coffer for the last 13 caches

Greetings from Season 15 in 2018. The Avarice conquest took me many attempts that resulted in failure (but I learned a lot); here are some keys to my success (and it was pretty easy to finally do it--first try--when I used this approach):
[ul]
* The Torment level made a huge difference, I got way more gold coins at the highest Tx I could do while killing the mobs fast (a few seconds or less to kill the big guys, which makes the streak easier to maintain); use your (nearly) best setup (instead of weakening yourself a bunch to use many pieces of Gold Find or Gold and Health Pickup items). That level was T7 for me, on a Seasonal character, but regular ones can breeze through T13, which probably makes this trivial.
* Gold Find +% gear (etc.) in descending order of impact (or ease/cost): up to +50% GF from Paragon points; Emerald in helm; Boon of the Hoarder (legendary gem from Greed in the Vault, preferably level 50); Goldskin (if your build allows, don't disrupt a key item or set bonus; and pets don't trigger it, so you have to be using a direct damage ability--or Acid Cloud does tick soon after it's cast--for that item to be useful); and Goldwrap makes you invulnerable); and don't use any other GF/GHP gear. You don't need Leoric's Signet, Gladiator Gautlets, etc.; you don't need any of this (except the head gem, BotH gem, and PP are easy or free; you may need the gauntlets if you don't have the legendary gem; and probably Avarice Band ring would make a big difference, if you have one anyway, or if you don't have a pet that picks up gold).
* Check your skills, especially passives, you may be using stuff that doesn't help you. Movement speed and max damage are ideal. Also check your cubed item powers.
* Why do so many people say Ruins of Corvus? Because mobs drop a lot of gold in Act V, and RoC has many easy-to-kill enemies (the scarabs). It does make it way easier to run through the zone first and open all the doors and plan your route, and that doesn't take long (less time than if you don't do that, and fail). Unequip your pet that picks up gold (Follower is fine, but remember to Equip the pet before you attempt the streak!) and don't summon pets that deal damage. Keep in mind that you get limited Resurrects at Corpse, you can't die easily at the Tx in your "exploration setup" or else it won't work.[/ul]
Doing the conquest this way takes much less time than opening fifty (or so) bounty caches, even split farming. The supposed upside to that method is it's literally guaranteed, but this one is virtually guaranteed. The Wardrobe makes it easy to save your "gold setup" for future visits to the Vault; gold coins stop being relevant after only a few visits there but you need them before then, I think it can be worth the time to set up and you're doing conquests (which tend to be time-consuming) anyway.

Honestly you can do this anywhere out side of Greeds Zone.

Unhallowed Essence Demon Hunter standard build with speed farm variant

Gold Skin
Gold Wrap
Avrice w/ rank50 Boon
Kymbo's Gold w/ Zeis
Zodiacs / Bane of Trapped  (will need Reduced Resource Cost)
Custerian Wristguards

Cube: 
Leorics
Grandeur 
Dawn

This will guarantee you getting Avrice without having to do any special farming for a Bolvine Axe just go do a T10+ Rift. If you have issues just stack more reduce resource cost.  You might also try an Emerald in the helm socket with that Leorics.

Avrice is Extremely Easy to get, you just need the right build.

I notice that on the XBox, the streak timer is only about 2 seconds; I'm not sure how it is possible to maintain a gold streak of any length. I think that the caches are the only way.

Do bounties on the highest torment difficulty possible and collect about 2 stashes worth (about 50) then go to stash and (without moving, very crucial) take off your pet or anything that collects and open ALL the chests at once. (don't move at all or it'll pick up the gold) then just click on an empty area to pick up gold and you should get easily 50mil at once. :)

Shoot. I just spent a couple of hours farming an Avarice Band and then another hour fumbling through attempts at this, only to discover afterward that it's not actually one of the season's conquests. So much else on this site is timely (build recommendations reflect Season 16) that I was really surprised this guide didn't have a note right up top.

On the plus side, I have an extra 300 million gold now?

Discovered today since the adding of more Torment levels (and thus improved gold %), this conquest is extremely easy with almost zero prep outside of your normal play. Just level/gear your character as you normally would, then when you can comfortably do Torment 15 (or 16 if you want it extra easy), just swap out one jewelry gem with a maxed Boon of the Hoarder.

One Nephalem Rift of decent density and open-roaming space, and you'll get the conquest with barely any effort. Enjoy!

I did a little more gear stuff than this, but got the conquest on my first tier 16 rift.  Easy peasy.

Season 17 Avarice:

I got lucky and a Goblin opened a portal to the Cow level for me today. I had read the cow level was a spot to farm it. In the Icy-veins article. So i threw on what gold find gear I had and tried for it. Torment 16 was a breeze to get Avarice. I recorded my run if anyone wants to watch 🙂

It is absolutely doable. Youll need Boon of the Hoarder, avarice Band, Goldwrap and maybe some gold find rolls and an emerals in the head slot. 

It is beneficial to use a spec that is constantly on the move (ue ms DH, ww barb, tr monk, archon wiz, Condemn crusader etc.

I didn't think I'd be able to do this one, as I've failed in the past. But I was able to do it very easily on the first try with the Helltooth Garg WD build on T16. Using a L50 Boon of the Hoarder and a Goldskin chest piece, I ran through a nephalem rift WITHOUT a pet for about 5 minutes and killed everything I came across. At that point, I brought back my pet and switched my mojo to Shukrani's Triumph which enables Spirit Walk until you either attack or are within 30 yards of an enemy. Since there were no enemies, I was able to retrace my path back to the beginning and collect well over 50,000,000 gold.

      Today's patch addresses a bit more than just the exploit, by splitting the killstreak Pandemonium buff to separate "worlds", aka individual zones and rifts, but also fixes an annoying bug where your killstreak would be ended when y cheat death passive would proc.

      There's been a lot of discussion over at the official forums about how exactly to address the recent "solo" clear exploit using the seasonal killstreak mechanic, and Nevalistis has responded to clear things up. They way Blizzard will be handling this problem is separating the killstreak/Pandemonium buff, resetting it to 0 when a player transitions between "worlds", aka different zones of the world map or rifts. She also goes into why this same system isn't used for all buffs across the board.
      Killstreak Exploit Fix (source)
      There seems to be a lot of digging into nuance to try to justify some behavior over others, so I’m going to share what the fix is going to be as I think it’s the easiest way to clarify this without giving a how-to guide on performing the exploit. Again, going to warn everyone here: do not post the steps to the exploit on the forums; it is not permitted, and you will lose your posting privileges.
      In order to maintain the Pandemonium buff, both the player and the monster being killed must be in the same “world.” Rifts (of either kind) are their own “world,” as are different zones of the world map. I’ve also seen call-outs to other personal player buffs using the same technique. Throughout the years, we have systematically “whack-a-mole” fixed cases where buffs are being generated outside a Rift and carried into it, on a case-by-case basis depending on the severity of the impact. If the behavior feels necessary, even mandatory, to basic gameplay, then it may be worth revisiting the design entirely to fix that.
      I’m taking that feedback to the team to discuss further. In the meantime, I hope this provides the clarity you’re looking for.
      Players are always going to find things our design and QA teams miss; there’s simply more of you than there are us! When those efforts create degenerative gameplay that begins to feel necessary, that’s a problem. Now that we’ve identified it, we’re asking you do not abuse this problem while we work to address it—for the greater health of the game.

      Another discussion has erupted in the Diablo 3 community, with a very specific use of the seasonal killstreak mechanic resulting in technically solo, but not really, Greater Rift 150 clears. The most prominent example is TheUltimateEggman, who has been banned from Twitch after presumably being mass reported by viewers following his Barbarian, Witch Doctor and Monk Season 19 GR 150 "solo" streams, with a little/a whole lot of help from his friends.

      You can check out an example of the process in action below, as well as Blizzard's official response - a statement saying players abusing this exploit will be banned, depending on how much they used it, as well as have their runs removed from the leaderboards. They will also be fixing the exploit asap.
      Seasonal GR Clear Exploit (source)
      It’s recently come to light that there is a method in which players can unfairly leverage the Seasonal buff, Pandemonium, in an unintended and unfair way to progress as a solo player. We wanted to let you know exactly what our stance is and what steps we’ll be taking to correct this.
      First, utilizing a group buff to progress in solo Greater Rifts is not intended and will be considered cheating. Players found using this mechanic may have their accounts suspended or closed, based on severity of abuse as well as previous account history. These account actions are between Blizzard and the offending players, so please note we will not be commenting on the status of accounts on a public basis, as has always been our standard practice.
      Second, we will be deleting any and all clears from the Leaderboards where we have been able to confirm this exploit was utilized.
      Third, we will be fixing this exploit. We ask that you do not make use of this exploit in the meantime while we are working to deploy a patch. Our team is already at work on a solution and, as soon as it’s ready for deployment, we’ll update this thread accordingly. We won’t detail this exploit here, but it takes some planning, know-how, and research to make use of this; this is not the type of exploit you can perform by accident.
      Lastly, this is a good time to remind the community of a few things:
      Third party addons of any kind are strictly prohibited. While any kind of botting software falls clearly under violation of our Terms of Service, for Diablo III, this also includes any kind of overlay software, map hacks, or any other addons or alterations to the client. Addons are not supported for Diablo III and use of them may result in account warnings or permanent account closure. We are committed to continuing to support Diablo III, including taking action against botting and cheating. Please keep in mind that we do routine actions to keep Sanctuary fair for everyone, and we will not regularly provide public notice of mass account actions. We’re working on resolving this issue as quickly as possible and thank the community for bringing it to our attention, expressing your concerns thoughtfully, and having patience while we remain committed to our Blizzard principles of Play Nice, Play Fair and Commit to Quality.
      Thank you.
       
      So what are we looking at here? Well, what he did is go for a toughness build, gather up a massive amount of mobs in the GR, then portal out and head into specific places where his friends had a bunch of mobs waiting. He would then dot those mobs, go back to the GR and have them finish the mobs off, triggering the killstreak effects which then killed the mobs inside the GR, repeating the process several times.
      It's good that we've heard from Blizzard directly on this subject, as there was a whole lot of debate happening on whether this was actually an exploit or not, seeing as these concerns were known from the PTR and were not addressed.

      We have a fix for the recent problems players have been having with whispering others, specifically the "Error 3" message. There's still no eta for the party joining bug, however, as the last fix didn't actually work. We did find out that the party issue will require and actual patch instead of a simple hotfix, so it might be a while until we see it.
      Whisper Bug (source)
      Hey all,
      The Whisper Error 3 should be fixed up as of now. If anything comes up where you still continue to see this error, please exit game and start fresh. If it still continues, please let us know!
      Thanks again

      Hey Robdoggierob,
      We’re continuing to investigate and internally testing many fixes targeted to squash this bug daily. A bit more difficult to nail down unfortunately, but we have made progress in some areas.
      We’ll continue to update, but most likely this will require a new build to be produced rather than a hotfix. Once we have a fix that is 100% internally, we’ll communicate it out to everyone.
      Thanks again
