So I was thinking about how to get this achievement, The Madness Contained (Spend 150 hatred and 50 Discipline in 6 seconds), and I think I've got a set up that should work, however the achievement isn't popping for me.
First of all, you need elective mode on. Then you set your 1 to be Companion, 2 to be Preparation, and your Right click to be Spike Trap. Then, you put the passive skill Vengeance on, which raises your Hatred to 150. All you need to do is cast companion and spike trap 5 times in 6 seconds, And they can be cast at the same time and there's no cooldown for either. You need to cast Preparation as you'll run out of discipline after 3 casts of companion, so essentially it boils down to:
1) Hold Right Click
2) Hit 1 1 2 1 1 1
Which should be 150 Hatred and 50 Discipline, and it should be able to be done within 6 seconds. I've also experimented with speeding it up by using Shadow Power and smoke screen, still not working. Anyone have any ideas how to get this achievement?
Great job finding this build! Im at work or else I'd try it.
Side note of sympathy for you though: I tried to do the olympian achievement with preparation before I had the tumble rune. It never worked or gave it to me. Once I got tumble and just spammed it in town it didn't work either.
2 hours later, I spam it in town again and I get the achievement.
I think its a little buggy.
Same thing happened for me, whenever I was running from place to place I would do Vault Vault Vault Vault Prep Vault Vault, it eventually popped and I figured I just was doing it too slow. I'll just keep doing the combo whenever I'm taking a break from demon slaying and see if it eventually works, until a better idea comes along.
Glad I'm not the only one having trouble with this.
I used cluster arrow instead of spike trap; however, I can't get the achievement either.. it hasn't been taking me 6 seconds.
*edit* By the way, I use cluster on right click, sentry on 1, companion on 2, and prep on 3. Hold down right click 1/2 at the same time, hit 3, spam 1/2

I was having the same difficulty as posters above, but I think I found a quick fix solution. I could not get the achievement to pop even though I was clearly besting the time, so I:
1.) Left the game
2.) Started a new game
3.) Attempted the achievement right away
It immediately pop'd the first time I tried. I hope that helps somebody.
I did this achievement with the following setup:
Hold Shift, press 1 2 and 3 at the same time, use Preparation, and then use Mark of Death to top off the required 50 Discipline. You of course should be firing Cluster Arrow during this; it only takes three shots.
