Items

More Details
  • Legendary Gems

    • Bane of the Stricken
    • Bane of the Trapped
    • Enforcer

Kanai's Cube

  • Sacred Harvester
  • Belt of Transcendence
  • Ring of Emptiness

GEAR OPTIONS:

1) Voo's Juicer can be used, but is worse than Sacred Harvester for COLD build. Mostly because there's four cold runes with only two active being good for casting -> Phlebotomise and Spirit is Willing.

2) If you have ancient Witching Hour you can try to wear it and cube Belt of Transcendence. This is a 100% DPS-oriented setup.

3) If you have legacy Frostburns you can wear them and cube another Frostburns for 20% more cold damage and solid 50% Freeze Chance.

4) It's also an interesting idea to use Ancient Parthan Defenders in the cube, because Frostburns freeze targets pretty reliably. However, more damage or just more life works better for me now.

5) Leoric's Crown can be used in the cube instead of Grin Reaper for more toughness

6) Good ancient Andariel's Visage can be used instead of Grin Reaper.

7) Strongarm Bracers can be used in the cube as well for 30% more global buff

GEMS:

Amethysts or Rubies in chest and pants (better than diamonds for INT users). Topazes if you can survive.

LEGENDARY GEMS:

Esotetic can be used instead of Enforcer or Stricken for more toughness (Hardcore variant). Zei's Stone is another DPS gem option here. Another decent option is Pain Enhancer instead of Enforcer. IN density it can outdamage Enforcer, but will suck against single target.

Build Guide

Hey guys! So, for some unknown reason Spirit Barrage is STILL considered a pet, even though it does not work with Zunimassa anymore. However, it gets Ring of Emptiness buff as well as other buffs from Mask of Jeram and Enforcer gem. I think that this is a bug and potentially will be fixed. However, this bug is not entirely ground-breaking, overpowered or life-changing, it just gives the opportunity to play a powerful spellcaster LON WD build, which in my opinion is great. So let's use this opportunity!

VIDEO IS TEMPORARY AND FOR DEMONSTRATION ONLY FOR NOW, I HAVE ZERO AUGMENTS AND NON-ANCIENT MOJO THERE.
Useful Passives:
1) Gruesome Feast is a crazy DPS boost.

2) Confidence Ritual - another 25% dps multiplier.

3) Swampland Attunement. More damage reduction

4) Jungle Fortitude = +15% flat DR buff

5) Bab Madicine = +25% DR debuff cause you cast a lot of poison

5) Pierce the Veil. MOAR damage but not recommended cause you drop Aquila's bonus fast

6) Fierce Loyalty. Not bad movespeed buff for speedfarming variant.

Useful Skills

1) Manitou can be used (with or without Voo's Juicer), but it gives random explosions and based on my testing it's much less damage. Not recommended

2) Spirit is Willing is not really necessary with Rush of Essence.

2) Locust Swarm - Cloud of Insects. Good debuff for damage reduction, but hard to cast on every single mob. Use it only if you die too much.

3) Zombie Dogs - Leeching Beasts. Can give recovery if you manage to fit them.

4) Horrify - Frightening Aspect, more armor.

STACK AS MUCH ATTACK SPEED AS POSSIBLE (gloves, rings, weapon) THEN STACK AREA DAMAGE!
