T13 Rift Clearing Competition

General Discussion
It looks like more like a month and a week left in the competition according to the dates posted.

until Sunday, september 18th 23:59 UTC (7PM eastern, 19th sept 1AM in Central Europe).
Tried with WD/Chicken, and the first attempt failed miserably. Probably need a bit more gear and paragon levels, and a decent ancient weapon.

It can easly hit 25b crits with paragon 800, and with his build he said he hit ~15b basic crits without paragon, with the sword that makes all first hits crits, yeah he was 1 hitting everything on torment 10, now hes doing it torment 13.
Alright, now that the seasonal stash grab is done with I had some time to try and test some various T13 Monk builds, have concluded LoN-LTK is still my preferred farming mode because it is funner and lazier than the others I tested. The Sunwuko LTK builds definitely have the potential to clear faster than LoN-LTK, but I just plain suck at stack management, and end up dropping SW at least once a rift and end up dying or running away like a chump. All the Wave of Light variations (SWK and LoN) still work great, but with limited paragon just felt better with a 3rd DPS gem and usually without Nemesis, so gave up trying to find a good medium. May try out some Raiment/Uliana/Inna speed builds, but not sure they can compete.

Of course, 10x T13 runs is probably going to be at least 25+ min of recording.. (which might be too long for some to bother with). Couple of mini-strats I used: Hearthing immediately, stashing non-instant-salvage drops to ID later, using +PUR items to replace Avarice, using goldwrap + hoarder + NDE for invincibility, and attempting to cyclone strike + epiphany teleport into new areas.

It's just so happens that I've saw 2 DBs not picked at 18:00 ;)

Great times though and 10x for this video.

He's doing it with the new LTK variation, the bell build doesn't do enough DPS to be effective in T13

okay folks, lets heat this up again.
seems it have been really quiet and everyone (who's still left playing) have been concentrating on S7 progression.

a touch over a week left, so hoping to see some times.
don't give Davlok an easy victory


I dont think anyone bothering to Augument thier T13 farm gear yet. And competing with 15.5k dex already is ridiculus.

I decided to give 10x runs another try with full paragon (1490) up to almost 19k dex, a better Hellfire, an additional offensive passive, and reduced my entry time all of.... 22 seconds. (3s faster per rift). So in the end, it's still rift RNG! ^_^;
I gave it a try yesterday, here's my result:

Class: DH
Build: Fire Multishot (http://www.d3planner.com/928827419)
Paragon: 1270
Caldesann: ~80 average (11x)
Profile: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/wudijo-2228/

Video link (sped up 2x):
https://youtu.be/SMuxzxdMSFM

Total time: 27min 06sec

I had a decent run, these runs felt pretty average when compared to how I usually farm, so I think it's a pretty good indicator of what DH can do.

I used a modified fire Multishot build that I created recently. The main differences to a standard build are: Dark Heart instead of Seethe (allows for 15% Multishot on helm + more aggressive plays, don't have the helm yet), Steady Aim instead of Thrill of the Hunt, Bane of the Powerful instead of Bane of the Trapped (allows oneshotting most trash like cold MS because we have full multipliers on first attack). This seems like the strongest DH Torment build by far to me, since we can combine the strength of both cold and fire UE in one build.

Individual rift times can be found in Youtube description.
The fastest rift was 1min 36 sec, the slowest rift 2min 43sec, average 2min 8sec (from entering till turn-in).
i was away for bit, and while it's nice to see some activity, it's not much.
killer run though, wudijo. GG

still 2 weeks left to do it.
and it seems it's all dead.
i hoped for a "slightly" more active participation. just a little left til the end of this week.
the last "bump".
just a day and a half left.
I'd participate but p800 max isn't fun. :P
I did do a run before reading carefully the rules so I got a 26:40 time set (p2.4k).
I would participate in this if it were ten GR 60 runs.
ok, folks. this competition didn't turn out the way i hoped. but hail to the winner, the allmightly wudijo.
the winning run
