Why Convention of ElementsConvention of Elements on a build that will primarily rely on your Gargantuans, which don't really care for timing? Wouldn't it be better to use Ring of Royal GrandeurRing of Royal Grandeur so you can afford to have both Tasker and TheoTasker and Theo alongside Mask of JeramMask of Jeram? This arguably would help more.

Also, while I get why you use FirebatsFirebatsVampire BatsVampire Bats to allow for Mantle of ChannelingMantle of Channeling, I think that using Grasp of the DeadGrasp of the DeadUnbreakable GraspUnbreakable Grasp would be handier due to superior range, the slow, and synergy with Wilken's ReachWilken's Reach. It's certainly worked for me so far, letting me stay safer.

Both options are viable but I too prefer the route of ToT when it comes to Gargs since I feel it helps more with trash.

This I'm confused about, how would you wear both Tasker and Wilkens since Zunimassa doesn't have set shoulders?

As a preference I find the survivability with the 25% DR on Mantle along with Life from the bats is great since it's a good boost to damage but again that would be preference to player style but I still don't understand how you would fit the offhand since Zunimassa needs the set offhand?

I use Ring of Royal GrandeurRing of Royal Grandeur in my cube to maintain the 6pc bonus, and use Zunimassa's PoxZunimassa's Pox. This unfortunately means I can't use Endless Walk, but then again my variation is better for farming, not GR's. As a result, I'd advise using a Hellfire Amulet of IntelligenceHellfire Amulet of Intelligence for the setup.

For farming I would not argue with this at all but that at least explains it :)

For GR's though there is no room for that since the Endless Walk is too important which would make the Grasp+Wilkens too weak in damage even though it's much safer which I completely agree on.

Yes, in GR's, there's really no room for Grasp of the DeadGrasp of the Dead due to its inability to stack and weak damage. In that case, FirebatsFirebats is the better option.

I'm currently in the process of creating a build around this set, can somebody tell me if the Fetish Sycophants spawned from the Belt of TranscendenceBelt of Transcendence cause the damage reduction from the 4-piece set bonus to proc?

Yes, all fetishes count towards the set bonus regardless if it's from the belt or the Fetish SycophantsFetish Sycophants passive.

However, regardless of how you mix and match your gear, the max fetish count is always going to be 23. So you will not gain anything by having both belt and the passive. There have been discussions about the passive having been "ninja nerfed", since 2 seasons back it has been nearly impossible to keep the fetish count up anymore with it so the belt is more reliable right now.

Hi, just a short question: Does the Zuni 6-pice Bonus also apply to the spirit barrage phantasm-playstyle? If so, might be worth looking into...

For those seeking a pet-build that actualy works, i'm running season 14 with a 6-piece Zuni and 4-piece Helltooth set. Because the Zuni is a 7 piece set there is enough room to get the 4-piece set bonus of any other set using RoRG. I'm running with the following set items (slots inter changable depending on drop). Using Grasp of the undead to trigger the 6-piece set bonus from zuni and the 4-piece set bonus from helltooth. Makes for a realy sturdy build. Have zombie dogs for the dmg reduction and extra dps (no garg) and using big bad voodoo for extra dps when needed. Using the fierce loalty and the midnight feast to buff my zombie dogs. The speed bonus helpt with group rfts.

Running high level GR solo with no problem at all. Still leveling the gems and set items. Have almost no anciets and already everything melts away on the onslaught of my 23 fetisch and 5 zombie dogs. Check out my season build; Okubi

I'm a little confused. I'm pretty new to the game so I may be missing something obvious here, but how do you have two skills from "Voodoo" selected; Gargantuan+Fetish. Are you saying that it is possible to replace a primary skill with Gargantuan?

There is an option called Elective Mode for skills, found by going to Options > Gameplay.  This allows you to equip any ability on any action slot (1, 2, 3, 4, LMB, and RMB) so long as it is not mutually exclusive with other skills.

      We're dealing with Monks in this week's Challenge Rift, so check out the video guides for a smooth clear!
      EU Challenge Rift 145
      Ignore Mantra of Salvation and Cyclone Strike; both abilities are a waste of spirit. Use Sweeping Wind when you enter the rift and again if you die. Keep channeling Tempest Rush from the moment you enter the rift until you are out, use Epiphany on cooldown so that you don't run out of spirit. Use Blinding Flash on the Rift Guardian.
      For the layout and more tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 145
      Spam Breath of Heaven and Epiphany whenever they are up. Note that using Epiphany will teleport you to the target. Never use Mantra of Salvation or Wave of Light. Dash to monsters and use Crippling Wave (spirit generator) to punch them.
      Check out the video below by Raxxanterax for more details about this week's Challenge Rift!

      In this week's Challenge Rift, we're dealing with the new Wizard Hydra set.
      EU Challenge Rift 144
      Use Storm Armor and Familiar at the beginning of the rift to buff up.
      Black Hole should be used on Elites and to stack up enemies. Teleport around and let HydraArcane Hydras do the work. You always want to have up five hydras.
      For the layout and additional tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 144
      At the beginning of the rift, activate your Magic WeaponConduit and Storm ArmorScramble.
      Activate Slow TimeTime Warp on Elites. You can use TeleportWormhole twice within a short time frame, so make sure to use that for moving around efficiently. 
      Black HoleAbsolute Zero should be used to gather up enemies, otherwise, just summon Hydras.

      The first Challenge Rift of Season 20 has arrived and we have a Barbarian utilizing the new Frenzy set in both regions.
      EU Challenge Rift 143
      Activate Battle Rage for more damage and War Cry for more toughness when you enter the rift. Immediately start attacking mobs to get the 5 stacks of Frenzy going. You need to maintain them which is not that hard, just keep attacking. Use Furious Charge to move around. Try to utilize the Shield Pylon from the first floor up to the fourth where the mob type deals less damage.
      For the layout and additional tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 143
      The Flavor of Time is going to double the duration of your pylons and Bane of the Powerful provides a damage-increasing buff after killing an elite pack. When killing yellow elites, it means you must defeat all their minions too for it to trigger.
      You activate Wrath of the BerserkerInsanity, Threatening ShoutIntimidate, and War CryImpunity all the time. Battle RageBloodshed should be cast just twice because the buff lasts long.
      Other than that, you use Furious Charge to move around and fish for Elite packs and keep 10 stacks of Frenzy up.
      Check out the video by Raxxanterax for the layout of this week's Challenge Rift.
