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 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.

      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.
      2.6.7b

      Season Theme Buff - Pandemonium Fixed an unintended use of Game Mechanics involving the Seasonal Theme As a byproduct, players are now required to be in the same "world" as the monster they slay for the purpose of gaining or maintaining stacks of Pandemonium. A world is defined as either within the boundaries of a Rift (both Greater and Nephalem) or in the same zone of the world map. Fixed an issue where the Pandemonium buff would fall off of players once their Cheat Death passive activated

      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.

      Hey all,

      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
