Is this build better than a pure Marauder rocket-based Cluster Arrow build?

For now, it seems so, yeah. It's a bit easier to survive with, but we might see an M6 clear higher in the future.

I have found recently that a pure speed build through the marauders is possible through a combination of Danetta's Hatred combined with Marauders, and the Legacy of Nightmares. Grant it this in turns makes the build little bit more difficult to build for but its end results become infinitely more tangible for endgame progression combined with the gems Gogok of Swiftness, Bane of the Powerful, and Bane of the Stricken. To replace the Compass Rose use a Hellfire Amulet with a passive Steady Aim to make room for Night Stalker, Archery, or Thrill of the Hunt depending on your overall style. Replace cluster arrow with Multi-Shot passive Arsenal to improve your overall Rocket Damage and finish with Kanias cube: Weapon slot go with Dead Mans Legacy Armor: King Leorics Crown and Utility: the Elusive Ring  to improve the effectiveness of multi shot. Please Note that this build is designed for speed while maximizing damage without going for five turrets and maximizing your use of Vault as a Hatred Spender vs a Discipline Spender. My current rate as this is GR 62 but time is narrowed to a 13 minute due to lack of overall Damage. The opposite side for more effective damage and use of turrets would Equip the Bombardiers Ruck sack and your Hand Bow would Be Dawn because I prefer a Vengenance Build for true Damage output but you would lack the speed of the prior because you no longer spend Hatred for Vault. I have not tested this version so maximum rift is unknown

I'm trying to farm to collect the gear to build this. I'm using the Cold Skills that is the reason behind this build.

Rather than Vault - Tumble I prefer Smoke Screen - Displacement.

I have the quiver Holy Point Shot which makes impale two additional knives.

In the Kanai's Cube Weapon slot I have Karlei's Point which increases damage of impale by 375% and returns 15 hatred if enemy is already impaled. As per the build I have Frostburn & Ring of Royal Grandeur in the other two slots.

I replaced the Cluster Arrow right mouse button with Impale Overpenetration which is cold damage.

I'm using the bow Windforce which has 45.7% chance of knockback and the Bracers Strongarm which causes knockback to give 29% extra damage for 6 seconds.

You can't use LoN with Danetta + Marauders. If you have another set active, LoN does nothing.

At this point, you might as well just play Impale build with Shadow's set. You're trying to combine two sets that don't really have any reason to be combined, since they feature completely different playstyles. The Impale build ignores the majority of trash, instead hunting packs/elites and skipping most of the rift. On the other hand, Marauder groups up as many enemies as possible and uses spread damage to slowly whittle them down.

Hi,

i'm using this build regularily, it's actually the dh build with which i manage the highest grs (99 at the moment).
I have a few questions  about how to execute it best.

1 -> How does Zei's vengeance work with sentry dmg ? Does it consider distance between player and monster or distance between sentry and monster ? Still couldn't see well enough the difference, and the difference is 70% dmg so ....

2 -> Is frostburn really the best item to use in cube ? I imagined that witching hour equipped, with zoey's in the cube would achieve more dmg, even if it does not  freeze monsters with RoV.

3 -> about hatred gestion : cluster arrow is costly despite 40% HCR, and i wonder what routine others are using : i generally shoot 3-4 times with evasive fire, then 3-4 times cluster, then RoV, and loop till companion can be triggered and then i go wild and enjoy the hatred boost to install some new sentries. How do you play it ?

4 -> and last, what do you think of these stats ? some too low, or uselessly too high ?

- Cooldown Reduction 15%, hatred cost reduction 40%

- cold dmg +60%, cluster dmg +15%

- crit chance 50%, crit dmg +470%

 

Thanks a lot for the website btw, it's definitly useful !!

I wish d3 Sentry builds function Sentry as actual damage dealer instead of being a damage buffer. Would be fun

I agree, still fun though. I like rifts that are open and full of mobs  the build works best for me. Cubed up layouts I have to be careful. I also have a gold /DB variation for farming. It has worked well.

Cheers

First, just wanted to say that I've loved the guides/recommendations you guys present here on Icyveins. I wanted to ask how this sort of build stacks up in hardcore/console/groups?

I rarely ever come across guides that would involve group play on a console, much less of the hardcore variant. As a result, I see a lot of builds that focus on dps, and not so much about balancing dps with defense. Would there be any direct suggestions for something like this?

With the set build your using the endless waltz set. LON is passively good when shooting for maximum damage but is limited due to the need for ancient pieces. Danettas switches backflip to a hatred base burn which speeds up the build and with hellcat waistguard your grenade damage is amplified. Wrist is an optional reaper wraps for resource gain or wraps of clarity for mitigation in between rains of vengenance

Is Loaded for Bear better than Maelstrom?

Why not switch Ballistics to Grenadier instead of Single Out?

Why not use Magefist instead of Cindercoat? Magefist actually increases DPS.

This is far and away the worst build I've ever tried using. How the hell is this top tier?

With nearly full, well-rolled ancients I couldn't even come close to finishing a 90 rift. I died so many times I lost count. Couldn't kill trash, couldn't skip the trash to find elites without getting slaughtered. I didn't even make it to the damn guardian, gave up after nearly half an hour of banging my head against the wall.

Is there some mysterious secret to making this work or is it an early April Fools prank? For the life of me I can't fathom how anyone could see this as being better than the alternatives. So am I just doing it wrong or what? What exactly is the playstyle supposed to be, 'cause god knows I can't figure it out.

Git gud, noob.  And clearly you're playing the build wrong.  You must be accustomed builds that are elite hunters exclusively.  This is not that kind of build.  It's a "nuke everything" build.  You're not supposed to skip the trash to find the elites.  Kill. Everything.  Also you're supposed to be dropping sentries in advance of your own movement (who will start attacking anything close by, giving you a heads up; and they'll slow down anything trying to pass by) and using vault to avoid the rushers and to move quickly between packs if you want to leave a few stragglers or have a low density rift.  Templar is probably your best companion choice for this build, because he'll rush headlong into packs ahead of you and draw aggro.

And you of course are super pro at top of the ladder coming to icy veins in order to insult other people. Hilarious.

Currently it is, yes, for seasonal, but for non seasonal I see this build doing the best. (for current patch)
Most of the builds pushing over 100 for DH on this season seem to be one of these two builds. Until we get a bit further into the season we probably wont see a clear cut winner, because these builds may change a few here and there.

 

Comparing these two builds has to do a lot with play style, plus when it comes down to it, I think multi-shot is to easy of a build to play. Granted MS is what I'm playing this season, but that's just because I enjoy speed clearing 70's with friends to help gear people out.

People should just play whatever they enjoy. If the two builds are very close to power level, just play whatever one you enjoy most. Its not like everyone in here will be pushing 110's+ every day. If you are content pushing to 100's and playing with friends, trying to get all ancients and get lucky on primals; both of the builds should work for that.

Hey Folks,

Any suggestions on how to make this work with a Xbox One ? Is it even possible to approach the damage in this build without the extra button? Or could anyone point me to an xbox forum. I haven't pulled the trigger on the PC game. I was just a casual but then I found out about seasonals and it brought me back to the game. I am currently ranked around 7000 in the leader boards and would like to goose it a little bit. If I can finish in the top 10,000 I would be happy.

      The long wait is over and the Sanctuary is finally getting an update with set changes and various quality of life improvements. Patch 2.6.4 will be available for playtesting on Wednesday.
      Patch 2.6.4 Highlights
      Patch 2.6.4 will be deployed to test realms on November 21. It will be available one week for testing. 5 Armory tabs have been added for all characters. Greater Rift Keystones will be stored in the Materials tab. Primal Legendaries are marked with a red beam when they drop. They now have an updated background on their icons and are indicated by a red pentagram icon on the mini-map. Season 16 buff has been implemented and all Seasonal players will receive the legendary power from Ring of Royal Grandeur. This buff doesn't stack with additional Ring of Royal Grandeur. In order to improve class & set diversity at higher level Greater Rifts, Blizzard's adjusting some sets. Paragon points can't be swapped while a Greater Rift is open. Completing a Greater Rift level 70 solo for the first time in a Season will yield a Primal Legendary from the Rift Guardian. Blizzard (Source)
      We’re launching the Patch 2.6.4 PTR later this week for some rapid-paced testing, and we want you to have the full download before you jump in to provide feedback. Between long-requested quality of life changes, class set balancing, and a new game-changing seasonal buff, Season 16 is going to be quite the journey.
      Table of Contents
      PTR Details PTR Goals PTR Tips Patch Notes General Greater Rifts Seasons Class Set Changes All Barbarian Crusader Demon Hunter Monk Necromancer Witch Doctor Wizard How to Participate in PTR PTR Character Copy Please note that this is a preview for PTR content and subject to change.
      PTR Details
      We will be conducting the Patch 2.6.4 PTR over the course of one week, starting Wednesday, November 21. During the course of the PTR, there may be periodic maintenances, outages, hotfixes, or minor patches.
      There will be two buffs active to help you on your PTR journey: increased Legendary drop rate and double Blood Shard drops. This should allow everyone to acquire any class set items (or supplemental items) that might be needed!
      Feedback should be provided in the PTR Feedback forum while bug reports should be provided in the PTR Bug Report forum; clearly separating these tracks allows our designers and quality assurance testers to hone in on the information they need most!
      PTR Goals
      With a huge number of class set changes and a game-breaking Seasonal buff, we know it will be very tempting to get your hands on as much as you can! To help guide your focus, we’d like to offer our insight behind what we’d most like to see tested.
      Players pushing Greater Rifts as high as possible in both Seasonal and Non-Seasonal play Experimentation with class set mix-and-matches, as made possible by the Season of Grandeur buff PTR Tips
      This PTR is a little different from ones we have conducted in the past (and it’s been a while since we last had one). Whether you’re a seasoned PTR veteran or this is your first go around, here are a few tips to get you started.
      Because of the limited duration of this PTR, we ask that participants pick a particular portion of this update to focus on testing. For example, if you’re primarily a Monk player, consider what changes impact the Monk specifically. What you like best, what you think may still need adjustment, and what you may want to see in the future (even if that may be beyond the scope of this patch) are all good questions to ask yourself. Prior to the start of PTR, consider stocking up on items like Puzzle Rings and Bovine Bardiches.  Having these available after you import your character can make any necessary PTR farming much faster! Try to break things! Just tell us when you do so we can make sure the 2.6.4 launch is as smooth as possible for all our fans. When providing feedback, focus less on a solution and more on your experience. How did the changes make you feel? Was there something off you noticed? Did something seem wrong or insufficient? Suggestions are always welcome but identifying the issues themselves is most important. Patch Notes
      Last updated November 19 @ 10:00 p.m. PST.
      Below you'll find the preliminary PTR patch notes for patch 2.6.4. Please note that this isn't the final version of the patch notes and that some changes may not be documented or described in full detail.
      PTR PATCH 2.6.4 - v2.6.4.49286
      To provide feedback on patch 2.6.4, please visit the PTR Feedback forum.
      To report any issues you experience while playing, please visit the PTR Bug Report forum.
      For additional information on how to participate in the PTR, click here.
      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 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 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 Players inside the Rift will be able to continue with no additional difficulty scaling until the run has been completed 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 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. Please note that these values are not final and we anticipate some adjustments to occur during the course of PTR. All Classes Legacy of Nightmares The (2) Set bonus has been increased from 100% to 500% Barbarian The Legacy of Raekor The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 2800% to 7000% Immortal King's Call The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 1500% to 4000% Might of the Earth The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 5600% to 20000% Wrath of the Wastes The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 3000% to 10000% Crusader Thorns of the Invoker The (2) Set bonus has been increased from 140% to 350% The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 5400% to 15000% Roland's Legacy The (4) Set bonus has been increased from 3300% to 13000% The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 50% increased Attack Speed to 75% Seeker of the Light The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 2000% Blessed Hammer damage to 12000% Demon Hunter Embodiment of the Maruader The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 3000% to 12000% Unhallowed Essence The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 100% to 350% Natalya's Vengeance The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 3500% to 14000% The Shadow's Mantle The (2) Set bonus has been increased from 1200% to 6000% The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 50000% to 75000% Monk Uliana's Strategem The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 2100% to 9000% Inna's Mantra The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 150% to 1500% Monkey King's Garb The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 1000% to 1500% Raiment of a Thousand Storms The (2) Set bonus has been increased from 100% to 400% The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 13000% Dashing Strike damage to 60000% The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 1300% Spirit Generator damage to 6000% Necromancer Trag'Oul's Avatar The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 3300% to 3800% Witch Doctor Spirit of Arachyr The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 4500% to 9000% Helltooth Harness The (2) Set bonus has been increased from 1500% to 3000% The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 4400% to 9000% Raiment of the Jade Harvester The (2) Set bonus has been increased from 560 seconds to 35000 seconds The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 1650 seconds to 10000 seconds Zunimassa's Haunt The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 5500% to 15000% Wizard Tal Rasha's Elements The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 750% to 3000% Delsere's Magnum Opus The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 3800% to 8500% Vyr's Amazing Arcana The (6) Set bonus has been increased from 50% bonus damage to 100% How to Particpate
      To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached your Battle.net account in good standing (i.e. one that hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so.
      Step 1: Create a PTR account. To create a PTR account, log in to Blizzard Battle.net Account Management and double-click on your Diablo III game license; this will bring you to the game management page. On this page, click "Create a PTR account.
      If you've participated in any previous Diablo III PTR, the "Create PTR account" button may not appear. This is because you've already created a PTR account and can therefore skip this step.
      Step 2: Once you have created a PTR account, installed the Blizzard Battle.net desktop, and logged in with your Blizzard Battle.net credentials, select "Diablo III" from the main menu on the left-hand side of the application.
      Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.
      Step 4: You should now have the option to install and play the patch.
      The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate.
      PTR Character Copy
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
      Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out.
      Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.
      Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)
      Step 4: Select your region.
      Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.
      Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client.
      Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play.
      Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
      As this is a test server, please anticipate uneven game performance, and note that restarts and downtime may occur without warning. Thank you, and we look forward to your feedback!
      A new Diablo patch will hit test realms this week. Check out the official patch notes!
