Diablo® III

Glasscanon clan ^^ (GLASS IS CLASS)

I've been doing Windforce builds lately, and I've gone rather glass, but I've found some great builds with it that actually maintain and even increase my survivability.

My D.Progress: http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/gonetomorrow-1483/Caecilius/14492498

My unbuffed DPS varies from about 200 - 300k depending on gear, hence the glassiness to keep the DPS high. :)

Good skill combos I've found using Windforce (all tested in A3 MP10):

1. High damage, good Knockback Proc'ing
Hungering Arrow w/Cinder or Devouring Arrow (both have decent proc rates)
Rapid Fire w/High Velocity or Withering Fire
Spike Traps w/Scatter (also decent proc)
Vault w/Tumble
Shadow Power w/Gloom
Preparation w/Gloom
Steady Aim, Archery, and Custom Engineering

That build keeps almost every enemy at distance, with the exception of yellow bosses (immune to KB), and with 6 mines, kills quickly. No need for Hatred and Disc. buffs since the WF regen's Hatred Quickly and Disc. use is reduced.

2. Slowing, Super Distancing Build
Entangling Shot w/Heavy Burden (highest proc of all primary skills)
Rapid Fire w/Webshot
Spike Traps w/Scatter (also decent proc)
Vault w/Tumble
Shadow Power w/Gloom
Preparation w/Gloom
Steady Aim, Archery, and Cull the Weak

With this build, I'm able to keep enemies at even more of a distance, though without HA's seeking not as many targets are knocked back. The good thing about this build is that even yellow bosses are vulnerable to slow, and very useful against fast/extra fast leets. Using those three passives give me a total +50 bonus to damage (20% + 15% + 15%).

So as I said, glassiness is necessary to keep the damage up, and I do get one-shot very easily (often with Teleporting or Mortars), but with these two builds my survivability is better than my Manticore 350k - 450k build.

Glass is good! :D

FEAR HUNTER.. Hmm.. I've recently bought a Fear Star of Azkaranth(?) for 15k >_> Gave it to my Scoundrel. LOL

So far.. I've tried Frozen Arrow.. will also try Screaming Skulls. Problem with Skulls is that it pierces but doesn't have much AoE presence :(

Anyone tried EA-No Rune and Cinder with Magefist? Because Frostbourne helps with Frozen Arrow.. maybe that'll help too in some sense?


Echoing fury on the enchantress as well. haha. If you use windforce with cinder arrow plus screaming skulls .. they will never touch you .. Skulls don't need to be spammed. you only need to hit the target that's in your face to get him to back off.. then lay down traps before he gets back ..

My armor is a bit over 4k (4066) but my AR and Vit are below the threshold.
