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. :)

      We've already seen the preview for the patch and patch notes, as well as the new Season of Grandeur coming in two days, but the patch itself has now gone live! Check out the patch notes, featuring a lot of set changes, a brand new UI feature highlighting when Primal Legendaries drop, giving them a red beam and a huge and unique map icon, potions removed from the inventory, 5 new armory tabs and GR Keystones stored in the materials tab, a change to paragon point spending and more!
      2.6.4 (source)
      An update to Diablo III patch 2.6.4 is now live in the Americas for PC / Mac! Check out the full patch notes below to learn about all the latest changes. Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download the patch until it is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is in the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after the update is live until those regions have also patched.
       
      PATCH 2.6.4 - v2.6.4.54724
      Visit our Bug Report forum for a list of known issues. If you are experiencing technical issues with the patching process, connecting to Blizzard Services after installing the patch, or errors while playing a newly-patched game, please visit our support site or post in the Technical Support forum for assistance.
      Table of Contents:
      General Greater Rifts Seasons Class Set Changes All Classes Barbarian Crusader Demon Hunter Monk Necromancer Witch Doctor Wizard General Quality of Life Philosophy For this patch, we wanted to include a few frequently requested Quality of Life changes and focused on better celebrating and indicating Primal Legendary drops. Five (5) additional Armory tabs have been added for all characters, bringing the total to 10 Legendary Potions are no longer stored in player inventory and can be accessed or changed by right-clicking on the potion icon in the action bar Greater Rift Keystones are now stored in the Materials tab Any existing Greater Rift Keystones in both inventory and stash have been automatically moved Primal Legendaries are now marked by a red beam when they drop Primal Legendaries on the ground are now indicated by a red pentagram icon on the mini-map Primal Legendaries now have a red border and updated background on their icons Return to top Greater Rifts Philosophy The gameplay of micro-managing Paragon points during the course of a Greater Rift doesn't feel like especially engaging gameplay, nor was it consistent with the other existing rules of entering a Greater Rift. In addition, the below change to matchmaking is to make it much easier for all players to find groups for Greater Rifts, as the previous window (only between Greater Rifts) is typically very small. Paragon points can no longer be swapped while a Greater Rift is open Players can now be matched into public games where a Greater Rift is open Players who join in this manner will not be able to enter the active Rift, and players inside the Rift will be able to continue with no additional difficulty scaling until the run has been completed Return to top Seasons Season 16: Season of Grandeur The buff for Season of Grandeur has been implemented This buff gives all Seasonal players the legendary power from Ring of Royal Grandeur This buff does not stack with additional Ring of Royal Grandeur (either equipped or in Kanai's Cube) Unlike previous Seasonal buffs, this buff will not apply to Non-Seasonal players When completing a Greater Rift level 70 solo for the first time in a Season, a Primal Legendary is guaranteed to drop from the Rift Guardian Return to top Class Set Changes Philosophy We are taking another tuning pass across all class sets to improve class and set diversity at higher level Greater Rifts. Some of these values have been adjusted per our observations as well as player feedback during the 2.6.4 PTR. Thanks for testing!

      Read on for more, including a closer look at the anniversary dungeon and its unique rewards.

       
      Stop the Cultists
      Your journey begins on the trail of a group of mysterious cultists causing trouble in Sanctuary. As you hunt them down in Adventure Mode, you’ll uncover clues leading to a portal into Tristram’s past, and the terrifying darkness that took hold of the town so many years ago. . . .

       
      Explore the Cathedral
      Follow the clues and you’ll soon find yourself in a realm of glorious RetroVision™, where an all-too-familiar cathedral looms. Explore the depths and you’ll discover familiar enemies and iconic items, all brought to life in the Diablo III engine. Meanwhile, deep beneath the catacombs, the Dark Lord himself awaits any intrepid adventurer who dares to challenge him. . . .

       
      Discover Precious Loot
      What is a Diablo game without shiny new loot to call your own? Completing activities in the anniversary event yields unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets, and more.
      While some rewards are easy to find, others may have you scouring every nook or unlocking every achievement before you can get your hands on them. Can you earn them all? There’s only one way to find out!

       
      Your Journey Begins…
      Exclusive rewards and challenging enemies await you, but they won’t last forever! The cultists have begun appearing since December 31 at 4 p.m. PST, and the portal opens January 3 at the same hour. Both parts of the event end January 31 at 4 p.m. PST.
      Enter the dungeon, reap your rewards, and survive the evils within—or die in the process, never to be heard from again. . . .
