For the speed farming variant,  do you swap chiroptera for wormwood? Also,  what ring would you use other than unity until you had 2? Great guide!

Speedfarm variant needs a season 16 update.  6 pieces of Arachyr’s isn’t necessary.

I also noticed on the speedrun variant for the gear section that feet have fire bats %, which isn't efficient according to the skills you suggest.

How are you justifying that this is Top Tier over Jade for GR pushing? Look at all the leader boards. The top 1000 are all using Jade.

The speedrun variant also recommends firebats% in the head slot and the off-hand slot.

I can't get this build to work properly. I have all the gear and skills that are recommended but I keep dying too easily.

How can this be be used at higher difficulty levels? You need to be so close to enemies that you get one-shot super easily because you don't have much range.

For the season 16 update the cubed armour piece you use the coils of the first spider but this is a firebat item. Is there any reason for this?

This time, I have many notes:

1) In the skill section it is written: "Arachyr Doctors take Creeping Death during Greater Rift progression to extend the benefits of the their two DoTs and, more importantly, keep the valuable Cloud of Insects Damage Reduction and Draining Spirit Mana regeneration going". However, the suggested rune for Haunt is Poisoned Spirit, not Draining Spirit.

2) In the tables of stat priorities "Intellect" shoul be replaced by "Intelligence".

3) In the tables of stat priorities Sacred Harvester need an additional stat suggestion (if the socket is preferably obtained through a Ramaladni's Gift, there are only 3 stats suggested).

4) In the "Season 16 Adjustments" of the Gear page it is written "For the Acid Cloud WD builds, this allows you to...", but this is not an Acid Cloud build. However, season 16 is over, so this will be deleted soon anyway... 🙂

5) In the Introduction page it is written that "Due to its mediocre mobility on long distances, it is not recommended for Bounties", while in the Speed Farming page it is written that "it should also prove as a reliable and capable bounty farming build". Thus, is the build recommended for bounties or not?

6) In the Speed Farm page, the table with stat pririties still contains "Firebats %" (which is not a skill used by that variant); in addition, Arachyr's Legs misses the "2 sockets" suggestion.

7) When suggesting "Hellfire Amulet of Intelligence with [...] a solid fifth passive" the guide should also suggest Creeping Death (at least), otherwise it's suggesting only passives already slotted for that build!

😎 In the "Adapting skills" section of the Speed farm variation page, Creeping Death is mentioned twice as a skill to replace (with Tribal Rites and Gruesome Feast): one instance should be corrected with Spirit Vessel, which is actually one of the passive replaced.

9) As usual, some indications for which Follower to have and which Potion to wear will be very welcomed.

Some more...

10) In the table of the speed farm variation page, the shoulders and rings still have area damage among preferred stats, while there should be cooldown reduction (at least that's what I think in coherence with the changes in preferred stats for other items...).

11)  In coherence with other builds using Grave Injustice, should "pickup radius" be suggested in the tables as a secondary stat for your gear?

did this build, added in the angry chicken

likely reduce top spec ability, but, I hate having to multi tap every darn button, so, I only SW when in trouble, beyond that angry chicken and get where need to go, blow up, then do haunt - firebat - locust etc works very well once you get into the groove of things .. I suppose I like the chicken (cheap) but it does prevent a not so stable connection from insta dying when speed into a nasty room, at least you got a SURPRISE for them ^.^

I like firebomb, at least till doing this fireshield pimp slap anything that gets too close.
