A fire-rolled Stone of Jordan is a really good alternative for damage, or you can go with Band of Rue Chambers for increased Spirit Generation (More LTKs in the long run). If you aren't going with a support, you can wear Oculus Ring.

I do not understand why item? Where is Mystic Ally used in this build? 

There's a bug, or maybe it's working as intended, that causes abilities copied by Rabid StrikeRabid Strike benefit from the damage bonus provided by Bindings.

Thank you.

Given by the fact that there are very few Pants for LoN/LoD, and none of them give any good damage bonus, These Witch Doctor Pants are the best option, because they roll with Elemental damage bonus. You can wear them on any character, only the unique ability is WD only. To get them, roll a WD to level 50 (cakewalk with a gem of ease in a lvl 70 two handed weapon), go for Pants from Kadala. Once aquired, it can be reforged in the cube on the character you want to wear it, till it gets the desired Ancient state and one Stat away from best combination. Enchant and enjoy your BiS. 

Until then, any Pants that do not form a bonus and are Ancient would suffice.

I have a variation of this build for group play where I wear the squirts necklace, drop spirit guards and replace with the laws of seph spirit stone in the cube. Wear stone of jordan in place of unity. Replace magefist with stone gauntlets (optional). Replace spirit generator skill with blinding flash with rune for 29% damage increase. Legendary gems are LoD, stricken, gogok. Must have 45% cdr before gogok and 40+ RCR. If cdr and rcr are sufficient, the 165 spirit per blind cast is all the spirit you need to unleash a never ending hail of LTK as long as you have an enemy to hit for obsidian ring procs. The build starts out doing roughly 35T damage per second outside of coe rotation, and 105T dps in fire rotation. After 1 minute of sustained attacks, it can yield 350T dps out of coe and 1,050T dps in fire coe. 2 minutes into rg fight yields 700T dps out of coe and 2,100T dps in fire coe. These numbers are based on my current setup and only on the highest dmg number seen. It does not factor in all 3 ltk damage types.

Hey! This is a really cool variant, I can imagine it works out real nice and you have put some very sensible changes into the build to accommodate party play. Are you playing a premade, since I imagine most random player groups will frown upon such a non-meta choice? How far have you taken the build in GRs?

@Deadset 

Well I play on Xbox 1, so console player here. Our community is much smaller, even more so on hardcore, so definitely playing with a dedicated group of players.

season 21 brings several frustrations with the season theme for us; it isn't reliable or consistent and bugs out 10 different ways. That being said, using season theme in 4 man does not result in consistent gr 140 clears for paragon farming. We have decided to fall back on typical 2 support trash killer and RGK. With the latest nerf, our crusader only does roughly 1/3 of the damage it was capable of last season; this makes the sader pretty much a no go, especially since we could never stutter step. I was going through thinking of different RGK builds and remembered playing the lon ltk back in season 10 and how fast it could take down a RG. Given all of the changes to gear since season 10, It looked promising. At 7.5 attacks per second, its hard to beat its stricken stacking capability, especially when the build never stops using LTK. It may not be the best RGK out there, but is definitely fun.

I'm still waiting on a couple pieces and full augments before we attempt using it in 4 man. I have cleared a gr 110 solo in 7:38 with no augments and  1500 paragon at the time.

Something to note: in group with a zbarb with 2 piece savage, the build's total dodge chance goes to 88%. Add in a bubble support monk, and the squirts stays up.

Oh, you mean for console play! I sometimes hear of group meta alterations on console due to the way the game is altered for controller play, but I have limited exposure/knowledge of what you guys are doing. It's really cool to hear you can use a very unconventional build (by current Season and PC standards) and do so well, kudos ?

Gear page says that helm and boots must have "Wave of Light Damage %".

First of all, why must they have it if this is Lashing Tail Kick build?

Seconds, the Gyana Na Kashu helmet cannot have "Wave of Light Damage %" rolled on it, because of its legendary roll occupying the skill dmg roll.

Hey there, this should be fixed in an update of the guide that will be up on the website shortly. You are correct and should be rolling for Lashing Tail Kick damage across both the Spirit Stone (natural roll due to the legendary) and the boots.

      A new PTR is coming next week, as we get a look at the new patch and Season! Season 24 brings a tribute to Diablo 2, specifically Ehthereal weapons which will be very powerful, with class legendary AND passive abilities on them, on top of more powerful stats! In terms of item changes, we have Mystic Ally and Inna set changes, along with a Crusader and Necro item tweak as well, but there might be more since these are only preliminary/pre-PTR release notes.
      2.7.1 PTR (Source)
      Our two-week PTR testing period for the 2.7.1 update begins June 17 and we're asking for your help to quell the tides of surging demons. Take a look at the preliminary patch notes below and start theorycrafting how you'll make the most of the Ethereals and new balance changes; Patch 2.7.1 will be arriving soon. Table of Contents
      PTR Focus Details PTR Tips Patch Notes Seasons Items Bug Fixes How to Participate in PTR PTR Character Copy Please note that this is a preview for PTR content, which is subject to change.
      PTR Focus & Details
      We’ll be conducting the Patch 2.7.1 PTR over the course of two weeks, starting Thursday, June 17. During this time there may be periodic maintenances, outages, hotfixes, or minor patches.
      There will be three PTR-unique buffs active to help you on your journey: increased Legendary drop rate, increased experience gains, and double Blood Shard drops. You can also buy new gear for testing from the special PTR vendor, Djank Mi'em, who will exchange Blood Shards for class-specific bags full of Legendary items and Ethereals that we'd love for you to test! Class and Balance Changes: To ensure that the most significant class changes receive an ample amount of attention, we'd love for you to focus testing and feedback on the set changes to the Monk's Inna's Mantra set, Crusader's Aegis of Valor set and the Necromancer's Masquerade of the Burning Carnival set. New Season Theme Testing: We're looking to gather feedback on the seasonal theme content featuring Ethereals. So that we can efficiently review your posts, feedback should be provided in the PTR Feedback forum while bug reports should be provided in the PTR Bug Report forum.

      PTR Testing Tips
      As with our previous PTRs, this testing period is short, so it's best to hit the ground running. Whether you’re a PTR veteran or newcomer, we thought we’d pass along a few tips to get you started.
      Because of the limited duration of this PTR, we ask that participants pick a particular portion of this update to focus on testing. For example, if you’re primarily a Wizard player, consider what changes impact the Wizard specifically. What you like best, what you think may still need adjustment, and what you’d want to see in the future (even if that may be beyond the scope of this patch) are all good questions to ask yourself. Prior to the start of PTR, consider stocking up on items like Puzzle Rings and Bovine Bardiches. Having these available after you import your character can make any necessary PTR farming much faster! Try to break things! Just tell us when you do so we can make sure that the patch launch is as smooth as possible. When providing feedback, focus less on a solution and more on your experience. How did the changes make you feel? Was there something “off” that you noticed? Did something seem wrong or insufficient? Suggestions are always welcome but identifying the issues themselves is most important. Return to Top
      Patch Notes
      Below you will find the patch notes for the upcoming update for Diablo III, Patch 2.7.1.
      PATCH 2.7.1
      Table of Contents:
      Seasons Items Bug Fixes Note: All changes apply to all versions of Diablo III, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC unless otherwise indicated.
      Seasons
       
       
      New Season Theme: Season 24 introduces Ethereals, a new weapon-type that players will be able to acquire and hunt for in their upcoming seasonal journey. Ethereals will roll a powerful set of affixes, a random Class Weapon Legendary Power and a random Class Passive Power. Ethereals will have unique icons, names, item types, and sounds originally found in Diablo II. For additional details on Ethereals, check out the list below:
      Ethereals are account bound and can only be dropped by monsters, chests, and destructibles, but do not require your character to be level 70 to drop. Ethereals cannot be acquired through Kanai's Cube or from Kadala. Ethereal rarity drop rate is set between Ancient and Primal items. There are 3 unique Ethereals per class. Each Ethereal has fixed affixes and rolls one random Legendary Weapon power and one random Class Passive Skill. Only one Ethereal can be equipped at a time. Ethereals ignore item durability loss. Legendary Powers and Class Passive Skills rolled on Ethereals do not stack with the same power equipped through Kanai's Cube, Items or Skills. Ethereals cannot be Enchanted, Transmogrified, Dyed, Reforged, or traded. Ethereals can be augmented. Collecting all 21 Ethereals during Season 24 will reward players with the Feat of Strength, Ethereal Recollection. Players who accomplish this will have all Ethereal transmogrify options available for future seasonal and non-seasonal play. Ethereals only drop in Seasonal play, and will not transfer to your non-seasonal character when the season ends. Season Rewards: Two unique new rewards, a portrait frame, and a pet will be granted to players who complete the Season 24 Guardian Journey. Please note that the reward content will not be available during PTR 2.7.1.

      PTR Character Copy
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
      Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out. Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen. Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.) Step 4: Select your region. Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region. Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client. Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play. Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
