In the speedfarming variant it says to put Shadow Power as primary, but Shadow Power is not allowed in the Primary Slot.

Do you have elective mode enabled?

Yes elective, looks like a change or a build error. Also the skills description looks like the main rather then speed farming variant.

I use an Ess of Johan on my follower, so it doesn't seem like a good idea to double up on it.  Is there any reason to not use a Hellfire Amulet instead?  If a Hellfire Amulet is a good alternative, what extra passive do you think would be best?  Several seem beneficial.  Thanks.

I asked Deadset about whether using double The Ess of JohanThe Ess of Johan is intended, and it is. Therefore you might still want to use it on your character as well as on the follower. You can also consider using the suggested alternative amulet from the follower guide for your follower.

i had a friend of mine ask me why i would want to use The Ess of JohanThe Ess of Johan instead of an Hellfire Amulet of DexterityHellfire Amulet of Dexterity for group runs if it has a really good passive such as maybe awareness, if i was to use the hellfire amulet what passive would i want on the neck and what passive would i want to use as a general passive, also if i was to find a really good ess of johan or a ess of johan in general, would it be worth using instead of the hellfire neck ?

When using the two set rings I dont see the bonus for focus and restraint.

Whats the point of using The Cloak of the Garwulf if you dont use the wolf companion rune in this build?

The Cloak of the GarwulfThe Cloak of the Garwulf works with 2-piece bonus from the Marauder set.

Hi, on Section 2.1 Snapshoting, I'm not familiar with how to perform this snapshot.  How do I perform this in detail?  thx!

This post on the official forums describes very well how snapshotting works and how to do it. This thread also talks about snapshotting with sentries, but the information is spread across multiple posts. Do these provide you with answers you are looking for?

Thanks for following up, good info.  Here's my takeaway(s):  If you deploy the 5th sentry with the desired CoE element, you get maximal damage for up to a full 1 minute.  This snapshot can be performed every 30s using a potion (deploy 5th turret, take damage, drink potion during desired CoE element), which takes 2 CoE rotations (due to single rotation every 20s).  Is this essentially the point(s)?

Yes, but instead of boosting you for a minute, it works for a much shorter duration, before a new snapshot is created.

Unrelated to the snapshotting through potion usage, not sure whether it has already been fixed, but when drinking your potion, the sentries gain damage from your Marauder 6-piece bonus.

Can you clarify "before a new snapshot is created"?  For example, if I had 3 stacks of Sentries, I can drop those essentially immediately, those 3 sentries are all good for 1 minute (with Passive).  Then 6 seconds later, I can drop Sentry #4, then 6 seconds later, drop Sentry #5.  This still leaves 48s for the first 3 Sentries.  So what else is going to create a new snapshot assuming I don't drink a potion, don't go up in Paragon level?  Would a CoE element change create a new snapshot?  Anything else?

On the M6 aspect, I guess I took that for granted since each Sentry also issues a Multi-shot when you do.  I suppose you're referring to the base bolt damage, not the Multi-shot.  Good info.

Thanks for engaging on this topic, much appreciated...

Sadly, I am not versed well enough in snapshotting to know when are which snapshots created, though it seems that sentries refresh snapshots whenever they fire a regular bolt or when you activate a pylon (sadly I cannot test it), aside from the ones you mention. Maybe some other user knows better, as these are the ones I was able to find on the official forums, and it is possible that there are more, or that these are not accurate.

Thanks positiv2, no problem.  The firing of a regular bolt causing a snapshot update (my interpretation as well) seems to essentially negate the value-proposition of a sentry snapshot.  Generally-speaking, I find myself throwing down sentries when I need them, which  @GR90+ is virtually always, so they are firing constantly which essentially means the snapshotting isn't terribly relevant, at least from the AS perspective.  The M6 damage aspect still seems viable though.  BTW, I find this site is excellent for Diablo 3 details & clarity.  I always seem to end up here when I'm exploring the depths of a new class, etc....  Kudos to all involved!

I have just switched from the n6/m4 build to this one a day or two ago but the same question applies. Has anyone tried not running Custom Engineering? I am finding that it limits me to 4 sentries regardless of cooldowns without Custom Engineering, I am questioning every part of my build so I can find spots for small improvements or places to sacrifice ease and survivability for more damage. In doing this I learned there seems to be a cap that I am confused about, does max turret charge=max turrets in use as well?

Another question Does Cloak of Garwulf effect damage? To my understandings it does not but when I tried having it in the cube vs not I find myself clearing faster to the point of rifts that had 2 min remaining all of sudden are rifts that have 10 min remaining.

Where is the survivability in this spec? I am dying much more then when I used the shadow impale build.

I'm running it on hardcore right now, and I'm a little hesitant to go beyond torment 12. Some of it is my paragon level (361), and I'm missing the ess of Johan for myself and my follower (which, admittedly, might help a ton), but I'm definitely finding I need more life per hit and vitality to keep it safe while getting optimal rolls and that last piece of gear.

For me, I'm at paragon 700 and I find my self dying if I take almosy any damage. Some is not avoidable while most is. On the shadow impale build that not avoidable damage wasnt death for me. Currently went back to the shadow impale build.

-Johan gives you alot of survivability moving packs of mobs into groups allowing you to manouvre around the battlefield with vault away from ground effects and slow moving projectiles much more easily.

-A good thing to note is that a 9% zoeys basic spec is more valuable than an 8.5% ancient belt by a long way, the damage reduction is the most valuable thing on the belt, despite what the guide says

-Try to stand behind your follower meatshield, both pets (and templar) especially if you have your follower cannot die relic.

-I find i need to run Vit up to around 900k hp to make up for the lack of vengeance uptime when searching for elite packs on higher GR's.

-REALLY need to be aware of using your evasive fire to keep wraps of clarity bonus while moving through trash to look for a nice dense pack to clear, you will get a few deaths practising keeping this up until youre used to it.

-lastly, while learning the build you can use the toughness rune on evasive fire and swap out BoTT for Esoteric, i find this especially good on hardcores until you start pushing 95/100 and you flat out need the damage. I ran with around 220m sheet toughness (thanks to Eso) this season until i was convinced i just needed the damage to clear quicker. Admittedly it really helped until i hit paragon 900, but from there you should have aug's and can fairly easily afford to drop the 200 points in VIT to help you clear

Why is Cindercoat not the recommended item swapout for speedfarming? Pride's Fall is only 30% conditional RCR whereas Cindercoat is both +fire dmg and -30% fire cost reduction vs Prides 30% RCR if you havent been hit for 5s. In speedfarming you dont use the slow from sentries anyway, you 1shot so you spam on spawn/new level, so you can even use the fire sentry for the RCR on cinder if you wanna go the whole way

      We still don't have a firm date for either the patch 2.6.8 or Season 20 releases, and Nevalistis cleared up why we haven't heard anything on the matter, despite them having said the announcements would be coming last week:
      Nevalistis (source)
      I had wanted to (and, way back when, originally planned) to publish it last week. A number of last-minute publishing conflicts and illnesses caused delays.
      We intend to ensure the publication of the S20 preview before Patch 2.6.8 deploys in the near future. That should still give you guys a heads up on what’s happening, before it happens. ?
      I know it’s later than originally anticipated; this is part of why we typically don’t provide time estimations. Things can, and often do, happen. If I’m being honest, I thought I had scrubbed all posts of time estimations for that reason, but it’s clear I missed one. ? That’s on me, personally.
      Thanks for bearing with us.
      We also heard from game producer Matthew Cederquist on the matter a lot recently and he confirmed there's been a lot of sick people on the team which delayed the post:
      Matthew Cederquist (source)
      Hey Kinceks,
      The Patch 2.6.8 Preview Post should be coming out relatively soon. We’ve gathered all the feedback from the PTR as of last week and are finalizing patch notes, localization, and coordinating with regions in regards to a launch date.
      Should hear something soon!
      Thanks again.
      ...
      Hey ChrustAA,
      I think the sickness plague hit us hard - we’ll be getting the patch preview out soon enough!
      Sorry about the delay but thanks for understanding
      We're still going with our predictions of March 3rd for 2.6.8, with the Season 20 start being a bit more up in the air, but March 13th seems like a solid bet for now. Meanwhile, you can check out our Season 20 cosmetics and Haedrig's Gift preview right here.

      The second and final week of patch 2.6.8 / Season 20 testing has ended and the PTR has been taken down. As we know the Season 19 end date is coming in just over a week on March 1st, it seems likely the new patch will arrive a few days later, or on March 3rd, if everything goes the same way 2.6.7 did. Following the same pattern, we should be seeing Season 20 itself 10 days later on March 13th. Hopefully we'll get the final patch and season notes a bit sooner this time around, but meanwhile you can check out the most recent PTR notes here.
      Season 20 PTR (source)
      Hello everyone,
      The PTR has been taken offline. We’ll be moving the PTR forums into read-only until our next PTR cycle.
      Thank you for your feedback and contributions. We’ll be providing updated 2.6.8 patch notes in the upcoming Season 20 preview blog.
      See you in 2.6.8!

      We're getting another Era reset with the new patch, as Nevalistis pointed out, which means the non-seasonal leaderboards are getting a wipe as well! This is very close to the last era reset which happened with patch 2.6.7 aka Season 19, and is a much shorter duration than the usual year-ish period they tend to last. Apparently the reasoning behind it is the big balance changes coming.

      We still don't have exact dates for the patch or the Season, with a high probability of a week in-between them as well, but we do know last season started 12 days after the one before it ended.
      Era Reset (source)
      We’ve been chatting about it, but I wanted to have a finalized answer before I responded to any posts.
      Given the balance changes we’re introducing to Patch 2.6.8, we agree an Era rollover will be needed. So, we will be resetting the Era with the launch of the patch.
      And in case you forgot just what exactly Eras were and what they do, here's the post explaining it:
      Eras (source)
      Hi, everybody. Wyatt Cheng here again with a second installment of Developer Chronicles. Today, let’s discuss Eras.
      When we introduced Seasons to Diablo III, we also debuted "Eras." The thinking was that while the seasonal leaderboard would naturally reset every season, there would be some players who would want the non-seasonal leaderboard to reset periodically as well. There is a certain excitement associated with a fresh leaderboard—a sense that you could maybe see your own name up there at the beginning of an Era. It can also be disheartening to see somebody who is not currently playing the game hold a top position on a leaderboard long after the record was set.
      As Diablo III has evolved, it has become clear in hindsight that while the fresh excitement is there, it doesn’t last very long. First, the Era leaderboard is not something you "climb." If you are capable of achieving a particular Greater Rift tier, you're likely able to replicate that performance, or very close to it, at the very start of a new Era. Second, between patch changes, item buffs, and Paragon levels, there is built-in power growth over time—the concern of somebody holding a high Era ranking long after they've quit hasn’t really materialized.
      Eras Going Forward
      It has been our plan for some time to stop advancing the Era count every time a new season occurs. Expect that to be the norm moving forward. We are looking to move Eras to be 6–12 months in length.
      Besides simply allowing Eras to be 6–12 months long, there is an additional circumstance in which we feel an Era reset will still be warranted: when we expect that the highest attainable Greater Rift is going to go down. As an example, in patch 2.4.2, we made changes to the Twisted Sword, Energy Twister, and crowd control mechanics that caused the highest cleared Greater Rift to go down. When we have strong reason to believe the highest cleared Greater Rift will significantly drop, we do need to advance the Era to keep the non-seasonal leaderboard from going stale. Though this was the case in 2.4.2, expect Eras to advance less frequently moving forward.
      This brings us to a related question. When an Era advances, is it done before a patch goes live or after? The answer to this depends on the intent of Eras. Previously we advanced an Era as soon as a Season ended. This was back when there were season-specific items. The Era would advance in order to record the state of the non-seasonal leaderboards before all the season-specific items were transitioned to non-seasonal. We no longer have season-specific items and there is greatly reduced value in trying to memorialize the leaderboards at that particular moment in time. However, when we expect patch changes to cause the previous top ranks to be difficult or impossible to beat, it makes more sense to advance the Era AFTER the patch has gone live. Advancing the Era before the patch goes live would cause some players to lock in high ranks that become unbeatable once the patch hits. Advancing after the patch goes live allows players in the new Era to compete in a fresh environment based on the balance of the current live patch.
      To summarize, seasons are for those who want a recurring fresh experience; Eras should represent periods of time closer to a year.
