Diablo® III

SWK vs t6 ghom tests please

Can someone please do some ghom tests on t6 on the ptr with the current SWK build. I wish to see its single target output vs some of my lame test builds.

for reference:

combo strike wotf:bf/fot:tc: 21 sec (20, 19, 22)
combo strike dr:f/wotf:hol 20 sec (19, 21, 19)

How do I hold Ghom Checkpoint now?

Do I need to use story mode? Running through entire level to get to Ghom is crappy!!!

Are you timing from first hit?
Are you using Ramalama weapon(s)?
Are you using gems?
Are you using follower?

Unfortunately, when Ghom gets below 20 seconds (which is where competitive builds are now) things start to get a little distorted. For example, CDR may be very important for specs using Air Ally, Forbidden Palace, Epiphany, but in a <20 second battle, CDR does nothing and can be substituted out for dps stats that may distort actual build performance in Grifts.

First hit. Followers. Gems fine -- please include level. Rams weapon fine too -- realistically it only gives 7 ias or 10 elite damage.

Why do people do ghom test? You can't glass out and replicate the same thing in higher GR..

Still wondering if I have to run through whole level for each ghom test? Nobody answered :(

It still has value despite many limitations. Glass-out is just one of the many!

interesting. I didn't think the single target was that good. Sounds promising.

Does furnace work on the 2 set sunwuko set bonus? Or just want the bonus of elites over the 20% increase all?

How long do you take approx in a t6 rift run? I take about 10-15 minutes with simular build
Only thing is I use innas weapon (with belt and pants)
so the weapon and pants is worse than urs rest is simular

Still I die often cuz of not able to spam anything when ephi is off....

Furnace does not stack Still does MEGA damage vs elites though. I saw some dude doing a TR spec and criting elites for 200+ mil on average

Furnace is a 2H mace and does not get daibo bonus from SWK. However, it has higher avg dmg than Daibo. That goes a long way towards making up for the 20% lost for using non-Daibo. Then there is the 50% elite dmg, which is huge, and hits where you need it (single targets!).

Currently Furnace > any Daibo in passive SWK imo. A 40+% holy Daibo would instantly be better, I think.

I'm not sure, but I will guess under 10m. The build can just about run through blue elite packs in one pass.

I do too! Those who played original TR specs know that it runs glassy with burst for elites. Same situation here. There is a learning curve, esp when it comes to spirit management. It will take a few days to figure out things, especially if you are new to TR on LMB (I used this in the past, so not big adjustment).

Ideally, spec runs close to 60% CDR, so a FITL activation and SWK clone fest is never more than 5 or so seconds away.

I've seen up to about 300 m crits vs. elites. If the stars align, can dump >250 spirit in a second for 3+ clones and close to 1b dmg tops.

Hexing pants are so good in spec. They are 25% dmg all the time and 25% spirit (~25% more dmg) all the time.
