Diablo® III

Give me an interesting build, somebody

Something that isn't the usual thing. It doesn't need to be efficient or even necessarily function above MP1 or 2, I'm just looking for something fun and different. It also shouldn't be too expensive. Any class is fine.

This isn't Diablo 2, Diablo 3 has no fun builds, every class only has 1-2 viable builds we are almost forced to use

How about a DH with no Nat's that doesn't use Gloom/Prep.... or really much discipline at all really?

I've done Chakram builds for my DHs and Firebat builds for my WDs. Both pretty cool and put out a lot of damage. Not too pricey either.

Wizard Build

I freeze groups of enemies then hit 'em with my spectral blades and arcane orbs.

My spectral blades and Prodigy passive allow me to refill my arcane power really quickly. I don't have any AP on crit yet.

I use Ray of Frost to slow down any elites that are chasing me. I also use it to kill wasps or similar enemies.

I have A LOT of life regen and a good amount of resistances. Both of those stats I plan on improving even further.

I am at 82,000 DPS buffed and my spectral blades do 13% more damage thanks to my source. Oh and with my templar I have over 300 Magic Find.

Interesting. I like the idea of a Chakram DH. Do you remember your skill set-up?

Then click on the gem on the bottom of the page, right above the footer.
And you got your special build.

They did that to prove any build is viable. Expect dying often while trying to agree.

Works for other classes too.

Very cool, didn't know about that. Of course the problem is that it only selects skills that are automatically in that skill slot (won't give you a secondary skill as your left click, for instance). Still, cool.

this, sadly. Most builds are very close to it.

I mean for each class there is only a really small number of "usefull" builds, because the there are actually only very few usefull runes and synergies ...

not that Diablo 2 had tons of super awesome builds, but more compared to D3.

Hi, I see you're using a strafe build for your DH. Been experimenting with it as well even before they buffed it. Try strafe-demolition for heavy-hitting damage, does almost triple damage compared to drifting shadow and definitely more damage than all other runes (rocket storm will only be better with ballistics).

Use bat instead of ferret for the hatred regen, so you can ditch the hatred generator. I'm using chakram-shuriken cloud coz it deals nice damage to melee.

RoV-beastly bomb has more damage output than stampede, but if you're after its knockback it's okay. As an alternative, you can try to switch this with FoK-hail of knives, really decent damage although hatred-consuming.

If you want to keep your hatred generator, you can choose between not using RoV, shuriken cloud or RoV. If you decide to drop the hatred generator, you need vengeance for the resource (pickup radius and extra HP from globe goes well with this passive).

since you're using TA, may I suggest vault with either TOC (for damage) or vault (for mobility). Ever since vault was able to remove root/jailer it's a great disc spender now.

this is what I grind MP0 with, I usually just swap out runes.
strafe-demolition
chakram-shuriken cloud
bat
prep-punishment
vault-tumble
fan of knives-hail of knives (or RoV)
vengeance, TA and NS for passive

Oh, that was just me screwing around with a strafe-based GF build. I played strafe for a while, alternated between demolition and rocket storm (settled on rocket storm because even though demolition hits harder it's not as consistently accurate, which I find annoying). I'm definitely interested in a chakram build now, it seems like fun.

De-equip all skills.

Basic attack everything for the win.

Omg lol, this stuff is hillarious.

It gave me this Wizard build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#acgiSh!Yhe!aZcZYb

I'm sort of using a chakram build. It's basically just a skull grasp and nat armour with chakram cost reduction. You CAN get the cost below 0 hated, but as it is, I regen faster than I spend hatred.

Only thing is, seems like night stalker doesn't work very well with razor disc, so I have to switch to bola whenever I'm low on discipline. I guess if you have good enough gear though, you don't need to rely on gloom to survive.

Also, I have high enough crit chance so that whenever I spam elemental arrow, the target will be more or less stun locked.
