Legacy Gear 0Dogs
With some changes to the Marauder's set, a build capable of supplying Demon Hunters with health globes has become quite popular these past couple days: the Zero-Dogs build for Witch Doctors. There's only one problem, the build only works well with Legacy Gear like this Homunculus, Legendaries from previous versions that do not drop anymore.
There has been quite a few discssions about whether the developers will take action, including rumours of people being banned. But Tyvalir replied that nothing is planned for now. Keep an eye open on this - there's a chance the rune might be reworked to solve this issue.

At this time, we are not actioning (or planning to action) players who are using legacy items to support or run a zero dog build.
For those experiencing connection issues, it’s possible that you were having a separate technical issue. If that’s the case, please be sure post over in our Technical Support or Mac Technical Support forums.

Gonna go ahead and lock this, folks. Thanks for your cooperation!
T6 Rift Speed Clear
Daniel Fodor has uploaded an impressive video showing footage of her Monk clearing a T6 Rift in 1 minute and 16 seconds! It shows just how efficient one can farm when they push their character (and theorycrafting) to the limit. Philosophios has also shown that DHs can do it too. Pretty impressive character control and gameplay from both - check them out!
2.1.2 Lightning DH
Since we brought Demon Hunters up, wudijo has put together a build on our tool with a revised Lightning Meticulous Bolts build, which he dubbed Blue Tides. Both him and philosophios seem to consider it potentially one of the strongest 2.1.2 builds. Check out the written guide here, or the video down below by philosophios where he meticulously goes over the build. Get it? Meticulously? ... that was awful...
