How are your LoN builds doing?

General Discussion
Being away now, can't try. Share a link to your LoN build (if you want to) and tell how high clear it is capable of.
My tornado-fire-LoN build is only half complete and my stats are pretty all over the place. Finished an 82 pretty easily earlier.

Taking some gnarly damage though so that's as high as I am going to take it for now. It's a HC character so when I start getting chunked that's about as far as I take it until more gear happens.

-4 missing ancients still
-3 poorly optimized and not right for the spec
-few pieces with bad loadouts
Never played wizard, but want to this season. Talked with various Wizards in twitch chats. The few who were trying LoN over GR140+ were saying their LoN was getting wrecked, while Tals was safer and doing better damage.

Take that how you wish.
The same as they were prior to the patch, just a few GR higher and finding everything else in the game trivialized even further than they were with the legendary affix patch a while ago.

Besides that, nothing is different.
Just killed this RG called Vesalius. Is this new?

Yeah that's actually my fear. I play mostly hardcore and I think LoN will be low on toughness compared to most sets.

Came in 2.6 in 2017 July or something.
Fire condemn sader. 110 yesterday, 14m 21.065s. Only half augments but doubt it will be top solo build even fully augmented. Very glassy.
one shoted few elites on gr 100 as holy shotgun 14 min 20 sec bad boss all elites was juggernaut so yeah
LoN Sacrifice is T13 4 man viable.

Only tested up to 113 with my LoN Blessed Shield.

it's definitely stronger than Akkhan Blessed Shield but it requires either a lot of CDR (I've gone all out and reach 72.3% CDR by sacrificing attack speed) to face tank monsters or a lot of dodging and cooldown management, both lower the build's damage output significantly because Akkhan's Leniency relies on fast and constant attacks.
Working on DH Multishot build, clearing GR70+ without sweating. Haven't pushed too far yet since im short about 3-4 pieces for my build.
Will update with a link once its complete tho!

Akkhan's BS cleared 110 over a year ago in season 13. That's barely any increase for some major sacrifices. For all the talk in the other thread about how much better LoN is, that's not impressive.
Did a 101 with LoN meteor wiz with this mess of gear.

Really did use frost meteor. Just wanted to make use of my frostburn gloves. The semi-perma cc was amusing.

The damage output is impressive, but the build is seriously hampered by its toughness.

By up to 113 I mean I stopped there because I have a lot of other builds I wanted to test, it doen't mean the limit is only 113.

Frankly given the damage bump, the damage reduction should be buffed accordingly as well, to 6% per ancient (for max 78%).
I've got a LoN Multi-shot with a couple of different setups.

All wear Gunes but the cube is different.

The first is for fast T-13 and it uses Pride in the cube for endless vaults and endless multishot can go probably to 80 or 85 in about 6 to 10 min. Has a gold find variant with Gem of the Hoarder too. Appears to me to be faster than UE.

For Grifts with a bit more toughness switch Pride to Cloak of the Garwulf and change Witching our for Zoey's Secret, Grift 90 plus. Pretty tough.

Won't come near to UE but is great for T13 and Low level Grifts for Gem Leveling.

Still working on my Multishot build, at least I narrowed down what it needs once i get the items to drop xD. Any comments/suggestions are welcome... https://www.diablofans.com/builds/101967-lon-dh-multishot-patch-2-6-4

I'm guessing you probably know that you want to wear Cindercoat.

If you can get it, make an hellfire amulet with one of the four skills you have selected so you can work in Awareness, or just a hellfire amulet with Awareness. Then you should be able to drop Beckon Sail, though if you like the extra cheat death, I don't fault you using it.

With Cindercoat in the cube or worn, you can switch vault from Tumble to Trail of Cinders making vault cheaper when it is said and done.

At any rate, wearing Cindercoat opens more options for the cube.

All that said, if the build you have works for you, go ahead and use it. It should be able to roll through T13 just the way you've made it and will probable get you to Grift 80 with no problem.
I forgot how fun the LoN bombardment Crusader was. It's a very rewarding playstyle. If you hit your windows of opportunity with the right build you can perform one way. If you can't manage the positioning and cooldown juggling you perform a different way. In my opinion it's one of builds done right in this game. Give the same gear and same skills to two different players and one will outperform the other by skill alone.

I'm falling in love all over again.

I wish whirlwind Barbarian was this good because it's the same thing with superior mobility and superb nuking windows.
