Build for t6 speed farm. No not just speed, more like the Quicksilver guy from X-men, that's about how fast it is. And you can pretty much spam DS non stop lol

Not sure if viable for GRs, so far only did 42 and it was easy.


Pretty much doing the same. Tis way fun.
That pig sticker is nice.
Finally got an Ancient Sunkeeper thats decent to do it. A++, would do again.

Damn profile, update plz.

You're going to want DS damage on your chest. Focus/Restraint are by far the highest damage rings. It's still a question to me which rings are best for solo GR: if you have to use unity and if so do you use RRG plus other assorted armor or just SoJ. Maybe the season bracers make unity dispensable. I dunno.


Destroying GR 45+ with no unity. Prepare yourself to finally not be handcuffed to x2 unity. Even in full defensive gear, I'm still busting out 2b crits on the rg. I've seen 3b+ with more dps oriented gear on. And all with zero elite damage bonus... can't find a place to get some atm.
Mine is on Arianna.
I am completely unsure of how to build her up more other than leveling up the gems and ancient armors. I still need a gift for that flying dragon but I don't know what I should reroll the socket for, damage or sustain.
I've been using a Holy Raiment, mostly because I prefer that DS rune for the MS. I've been stacking CDR for passive regen to fund DSing as opposed to RCR via Cinder. (profile may not be updated correctly, using a BoW setup with Holy)

i use a mix inna 4 set with R6 with hellfire amulet and can DESTROY G45, havent tried it solo, but in 4 man i am usually top dps even though i am more specced and geared for survivability. Some wizards though, jeeze, they can do massive damage now, and a well geared DH could out dps anyone any day.
Got to play around with this a little bit more last night and I'm now using a modified version of the build that DatModz put together. I don't own any Ancient Parthenon Defenders so I'm sticking with the EP bracers from season 2.

The big change here though is to use the gems to boost attack speed and keeping the Flying Dragon in the mix as well. The attack speed just gets crazy fast on the auto-attacks when using this now.

Here's my build setup:

Did a GR44 last night just to test things out and it worked rather well in that. I can see where this would work will in groups also as the CC and the EP would be very party friendly.

Well, completed 47 in 11 mins today. Using crippling wave tsunami for the freeze and proccing Parthian defenders helps survivability. Cold rune on ds for dodge and the dodge mantra. Also using inner sanctuary and desert shroud during elite fights. Damn profiles are slow to update, but that's what I used.


Using same tsunami to proc parthian defenders and finished 49 in ~10 mins.

Now trying the DW cold setup with FoT/Quickening, see that 30ish% freeze from the cold sword and belt is enough to proc parthian defenders in higher gift.
How are you guys fitting in Cindercoat with R6? RoRG?

I have been going Holy with my R6 build for WotHF and the running speed rune of DS. So far I have been trying the Mirinae gem to synergize with the Holy spec but I am not sure if this play style will proc the gem enough to make it worth it over one of the other choices.

BTW, if you look at my character, I just built it out so I don't have all the leg gems on that character yet. I will likely go Powerful, Trapped + [Mirinae or something else].
Yeah I have been using RoRG and another random ring with Cindercoat which cleared 44 and almost 46.

@HeMan, I tried your build without the Parthan Defenders and it worked pretty well in a 41. I technically didn't die at all since NDE saved me once or twice. I literally just scrapped a Parthan brace so I'll have to start gambling for another one.

On another note, I found a near perfect non-ancient Blood Brother with ~3820 weapon damage. I wonder if that would be a good substitute for spirit guards? Might make killing things a bit slower without FD proc but BoW helps to mitigate that.
So after the nightmare of sorting through everything from S2 I finally put together my R6 set and played it for about 45 mins in T6 and GR46. I don't really dig the playstyle of using DS as a spender. I do like using a sat generator again but something about DS is just wonky to me.
I don't like it much either but I somehow managed to beat my SWK build records so I will probably stick with it for now...

Managed to beat GR46 with no Unity or Parthan Defenders, thanks HeMan! I think am on the leaderboards now :D

My monk I'm not entirely done trying for the Rainment head so I can swap my chest to cindercoat then ditch inna's belt for Witching hour or the chest belt + Inna's reach for a Furnace once I get one with more damage then my current one.
Np man, props though to DatModz on Diablofans for the build! Good to hear it's working for ya :)

I'm with you. It's a lot of fun and takes quite a bit of skill in order to survive properly. Knowing when to move and get back into the fight, etc.

Completed gr47 last night with R6 and the bastion set. Used fists of fury for high flying dragon up time and mirinae procs.


How did you manage without Unity? I can't seem to get anywhere without cindercot and unity... Way too squishy past 42. I did 44 fairly easily with fire build but I'd really like to use BoW if possible.


APD Bracers proc when you use Ice Crippling wave

Trying out APD in place of gungdo and frostburns/azurewrath with sunkeeper, basically DatModz's tsunami build with master of wind. Considering swapping in BoP but not sure what to replace as esoteric really helps a lot with not dying. Convention of the elements in place of unity seems to add a decent amount of damage if I am able to spot the icon.
using APD's that i picked up (fire) :( and Focus + Restraint - managed to clear a GR48 in a little over 13 mins (rank 233 last i checked)
Hi all,
I am from Asia(India), how can I show my build?

The US battle.net server displays "No heroes exist on this account" http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Smak-11992/career

I also tried the following site http://www.d3planner.com/ but didn't help.

The reason your heroes are not being displayed is because you are accessing the US servers (this is what "us.battle.net" denotes). Your heroes are currently visible via the taiwan and korean servers (change "us" to "tw" or "kr").

You can import your armory stats into D3Planner by selecting the appropriate server from the drop down menu. Once you have done this, you can save the build and post the link (other players could also just import your profile to view it for themselves).
