(GR114+) AT:SD MH Vyr6 Deathwish » https://www.diablofans.com/builds/100379

This one is a throwback to S12 when this type of build was really prevalent, especially on Asian servers. Reverse archon MH build. More engaging than I thought it would be, a lot to practice and improve with playstyle wise, and quite a lot of area for gear improvement (harder to gear in a season). Full guide and GR113 clear included.

(GR108+) Tal Meteor HC Push » https://www.diablofans.com/builds/100262

Tal meteor build I pushed with on HC. Very comfortable and great fun to push with. Felt pretty safe to play for a push build too.
Made some edits to the build:

(GR75-90+) Vyr MH Zodiac Speed >> https://www.diablofans.com/builds/94945

Swapped Conduit for Deflection. The shielding here feels great with the high AS setup, and resource is manageable with +AP paragon / source.

Also edited the written build quite a bit, fixing typos, revising recommendations, offering other alternative items.

These changes coming from testing in non-season (off-season), in preparation for S15 and possibly even S16. I revisited testing a few alternate configurations (In-Geom, Deathwish, Chantodos, AW, Deflection, Force Armor, and more). More detailed notes on these, and why I kept with the Pig sticker + OID + Starfire combo are included with the build listing.

Chain Lightning is easily one of the coolest looking spells in the wizards' arsenal. The chains here allow great reach for larger impact paralysis and Manald Heal proc. This build feels great for rifting, well balanced both offensively and defensively, but will likely be harder to gear out perfectly within the season (which can be a good thing as well).
I've been testing out another Frozen Orb variant build for groups, and I think I've got a real powerhouse on my hands. I averaged around the same time in 115s with it that I did with Star Pact. I've cleared 123 with Star Pact, and 122 with this build so far.

(GR120+) DMO Frozen Orb Channeling Group » https://www.diablofans.com/builds/100659-group-frozen-orb-gr120

Very tanky, very versatile, doesn't require elites at all, and you don't have to worry about getting stuck in a narrow corridor with an army of trash lined up like Spartans.

I should have a video up in a few days.
Thanks Ryoko, i'll have to take a look.

  • (GR70-85+) Vyr MH In-Geom Speed » https://www.diablofans.com/builds/100669

Tankier, speedier option with Vyr, albeit at 4 to 5 GR lower than the pig sticker variation. Very fun build.

Should be easier to put together at season start, such as when S16 comes around (thinking Vyr start).

Enjoy!

This link isn’t working. I also tried from YouTube video and your profile. Keep getting an error. I’ll be finishing the video but thought I would let you know

Thanks, While I was editing it, and just as it was ready the day of, dfans build threw an error. I've reported it to the mods, but they say it may take awhile. If I get time I'll remake it.

I've already linked the d3planner next to it in the meantime on the main post, forgot to update the comment there though.
