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!

Guest Late to a party

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.

      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.
      Check out the video below Raxxanterax for more details about this week's Challenge Rift!

      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.

      With the current server issues still affecting EU players, we've put together a quick tutorial on how to start Diablo 3 without ever needing to open the Battle.net client!
      As many of you have most likely already noticed, with barely any time left to go until the start of Season 20 in Diablo 3 for EU players, there are currently issues with the Battle.net app for a large number of players, regardless of which game they are hoping to play.
      While WoW players can simply boot up using the .exe file in their program files, things are slightly more difficult for Diablo players, as the .exe file will normally just start up the Battle.net app.
      To avoid this problem and log into Diablo despite the ongoing issues, follow the steps below:
      Create a shortcut to your Diablo .exe file (not the launcher .exe). You should use the 64-bit version in /x64 if you normally use this version. Go into the properties of the shortcut and edit the shortcut target. Add " -launch" to the end of it, including the space at the start, but without quotation marks. Save your changes and use the shortcut - Diablo 3 will start up shortly afterwards. You will need to log in with your account details and, if you have an Authenticator, you will need to enter the code manually. Make sure to double check the region you are logging into with the options menu on the log-in screen. While this method is not perfect, it should get you into the game in time for the new season! There are a few issues that you may run into, which can be solved as follows:
      My game is taking too long to load. This is completely normal when booting in this manner, just let the game load up. If it is taking a really long time, you may be trying to start up the wrong version of Diablo (32-bit vs. 64-bit). The 64-bit version can be found in /x64. My game stopped responding. Go into Task Manager and end any Battle.net or Diablo 3 launcher tasks. These cause it to stop working/stop loading. I never downloaded the latest patch. Unfortunately, this method only works if your game is up-to-date. It will not let you into the game if you need to download a patch. Once your game is up and running, make sure to check out our updated class guides for Season 20!
