Thanks for all the work putting together these guides! In my attempts, the build really suffered from lack of damage. I made a few changes to focus on BombardmentBombardmentBarrels of SpikesBarrels of Spikes, because it's the only real damage source. I went from not being able to even get 3/4 of the way done to clearing with more than half the clock left.

For my equipment I dropped Vo'Toyias SpikerVo'Toyias Spiker and equipped Akarat's AwakeningAkarat's Awakening. This let me put The Mortal DramaThe Mortal Drama in my cube. For my skills I dropped Laws of HopeLaws of Hope for Steed ChargeSteed ChargeEnduranceEndurance, so I could track down elites and shrines faster. I dropped Hold Your GroundHold Your Ground for Lord CommanderLord Commander as it benefits both the bombardment and steed charge.

I tend to favor toughness -- I play HC -- so I prefer Unity over Stone of Jordan for this, but I've done it both ways.

I stay closer to the Invoker build for this. I keep Steed ChargeSteed ChargeEnduranceEndurance for mobility. I stick with Laws of JusticeLaws of JusticeDecaying StrengthDecaying Strength and Akarat's ChampionAkarat's ChampionProphetProphet instead of Provoke and Laws of Hope. I play HC, so I keep IndestructibleIndestructible instead of Finery. (You get a 5th passive, of course, with the Hellfire Amulet. I like Lord CommanderLord Commander.) This season I wore Justice LanternJustice Lantern and Convention of ElementsConvention of Elements and cubed UnityUnityDepth DiggersDepth Diggers will work in place of Pox Faulds. I never use Vo'Toyias -- stick with Akarat's AwakeningAkarat's Awakening, with Blood BrotherBlood Brother cubed. Finally, I use Simplicity's StrengthSimplicity's Strength  and Bane of the StrickenBane of the Stricken in place of Trapped and Powerful for ample toughness and a boost vs the rift guardian.

The key to doing enough damage this way is Sanguinary VambracesSanguinary Vambraces. When it procs, everything around you falls down. Ignore all but the biggest packs of trash. Ride the steed to the next elite pack and start hitting. Fire up Akarat's Champion, Consecration, Iron Skin, and Laws of Justice (timed with the CoE physical cycle for max effect). You get surrounded, then boom. Ride to the next pack. The rift guardian may not set off the Vambraces, which is where Bane of the Stricken comes in. You should still be able to chop him down in about two CoE physical cycles.

      Blizzard today posted an update about their plans for Diablo at this year's BlizzCon. They are working on multiple different Diablo projects right now, but more details will be revealed when the time is right.
      It appears that BlizzCon will primarily focus on the Nintendo Switch version of the game and they are not ready to unveil Diablo 4 just yet.

      BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show. These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right.
      We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that “good things come to those who wait,” but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
      While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
      November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
      Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
      We’ll see you in hell . . . and at BlizzCon!

      Update: As mentioned in the comments, the contest is only available to residents of the USA, Canada and Mexico (and not even all US states).
      The Switch release of Diablo 3 is bringing some new events to everyone, as we're getting an interesting scavenger hunt, both of the online and real world varieties! The rewards vary from Switch console and D3 bundles, to just the game, as well as real life Diablo themed weapon replicas. The Diablo twitter account will be posting hints for the scavenger hunts in the coming days, and you can read up on the detailed rules below:

      Whether you’re a Diablo veteran or a complete newcomer, chances are you love treasure. To get you in shape for Diablo III Eternal Collection on the Nintendo Switch, we’re inviting you on a treasure hunt. Get ready to stretch those loot-chasing muscles and get your hands on some sweet (and very real) rewards! We’ve hidden items across the internet (as well as in a few real-world locations), and it’s up to you to find them. Don’t worry—we’ll be giving you some clues on where to look. Learn more below!

      In the coming days, we’ll be sharing some clues on our Twitter page. Once you decipher them, visit the corresponding location (online or in real life) to find an item or QR code. Click the link or scan the item you found, and you’ll be whisked away to your collections page, where you can track all the items you’ve collected so far.
      The items you find earn you entries into a prize drawing, where you could win all kinds of amazing treasures. The number of entries you get for each item you find varies on its quality, so keep an eye out for those Legendaries!

      Among the prizes up for grabs are copies of the Diablo III Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Bundle, digital copies of the game, and various collectible goodies. You can also earn real life versions of some of the items you’ll find on the hunt! These are one-of-a-kind artifacts, brought to life by the crafting masters at Volpin Props.
      If the idea of having your very own real-life Legendary item sounds appealing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and be on the lookout for the first clues.

      Think you have what it takes to solve all the clues and hunt down these treasures? There’s only one way to find out, nephalem! Good luck on the hunt, and may the best adventurer win.
