The direction at the beginning of the guide should say northwest instead of northeast

This. Otherwise, a helpful guide.

One thing I changed was replacing Mantra of Healing with Mantra of Conviction using the Annihilation rune. I didn't really miss the regen or absorb from circular breathing but found the passive damage and movement speed bonus to be far more useful, especially when circling back after grabbing the chest since a good number of the pylons had already been used up.

Thanks again for adding the set dungeons to the guides. I really appreciate having that gear show up in the salvage guide.

Guide says to put RoRG to cube's jewlry, but there are 2-piece from Inna and 6-piece from Raiment set. Is there supose to be 3-piece Inna/5-piece Raiment or just something different on cube?

Hey, looks like this has now been fixed. The torso piece was replaced by CindercoatCindercoat.

Since you can take an additional player with you, mastering this one is easy. 

Rush through the dungeon, and the other player follows slowly clearing the monsters. Soloing this one is a total pain

Yeah, I couldn't do this with a P193 Monk solo. Just doing the basic objective alone (avoiding Succubus fire and killing 410 enemies) is already impossible for me. And I'm Dashing Strike teleporting all over the place. I'm not using Nemesis Braces and Cindercoat, though. 

I'm not sure if Deadset actually tried this solo. Hmm. Probably not below P600?

Nemesis Braces is actually of very limited use in this. To reach the chest in 2 mins, you can only tarry 15 secs (2-hit 5 groups on the way there). Can Deadset 2-hit the champions spawned by Nemesis Braces? If so, he didn't mention this key factor.

Edit: Ok, I counted the total enemies in the set dungeon. 520. That means, you must cover the entire dungeon to finish the objectives. I had cooldown reduction jacked up (30%) to Dashing Strike all over the entire dungeon, and it took 4 mins and 30 secs. That leaves you with only 30 secs to kill 510 enemies, which comes up to about 17 enemies per second. Now, a fully filled Cyclone Strike + Crippling Wave (or Hundred Fist) radius will only contain (and take down) 12 enemies. Unless you have a "stare the enemies dead" skill, you won't even get enough time to chop down 510 enemies. Plus the fact that Dashing Strike + Cyclone Strike takes 1 sec together, and assuming you encounter 15 groups of nicely clustered enemies, that leaves you with just 15 secs to chop (and chop, and chop) down 510 enemies.

In short, you actually have to spawn quite a lot of your own enemies somehow to finish this dungeon.

Edit 2: Ok, I now have 50% cooldown reduction, 35% movement speed boost (not counting pylons). Cyclone Strike and Dashing Strike constantly, literally speaking. Can reach chest within 1 minute, and took another 3 mins to cover the entire dungeon (not even stopping to hit any monsters). The same calculation here as above, Cyclone Strike + Crippling Wave radius won't even cut down 510 monsters even at attack speed of 1.72 and chopping non-stop.

It is very clear that this set dungeon is not meant to be done solo, or very badly designed for solo. Deadset very likely didn't actually try this out solo. The spawns from Nemesis Bracers is nowhere near enough to make up for missing 30-50% of the dungeon.

This is certainly not an easy set dungeon and not one that can easily be gamed (a la resist all fire dmg etc.)  I ended up running with cyclone strike, wearing Nemesis Bracers, and In-geom in the cube. Essentially I cleared the first L-shape stretch (but not the offshoots) then rushed for the end. Still had 18 seconds to get to the chest. Then just worked my way back around clearing the mobs. 

Unlike other set dungeons, it helps to stack some damage items. With my gear and 759 plvl, I was able to one shot packs with cyclone strike and dashing. 

Hope this helps and happy gaming!

With in-geom cubed and wearing Nemesis, my Shenglong -equipped monkling mastered the dungeon in 4:01 on the third try. Easier than I feared. Paragon level was under 250.

What passive do you try to get on the Hellfire Amulet of Dexterity? I couldn't find that info anywhere?

Thanks!

      Diablo's anniversary is almost here and the Darkening of Tristam event returns January 3.
      (Source)
      Diablo’s anniversary is right around the corner, along with the Darkening of Tristram event! Whether you’re a series veteran craving nostalgia, or a newcomer hungry for your first taste of the franchise’s past, this annual loving homage to the earliest days of Diablo is for you.
      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 will appear on 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. . . .
