Hey guys. I was looking for some help with my Shadow Impale build Demon Hunter with reaching GR 70 to complete my seasonal Chapter Objective.
I have a few questions about the build itself compared to what I actually have, and what changes I should make to help me get to the point where I can solo GR 70. Once I get to that point I'll be a happy camper.
The current Shadow Impale build that I have been modeling my character around is the "Patch 2.4 Shadow Impale Build", found here:
When I pulled up the character sheet I noticed all of the gear was obscenely well optimized with R90 Augments on each piece.
Upon cubing things to create my own gear, I've tailored myself a set of gear that is mostly ancient and rolled decently well. I am planning on putting the time in to augment each piece with at least an R55 Dex Augment for the +275 Dexterity per ancient.
Through out gearing my character and attempting to push solo rifts here and there, I've managed to get to the point where I can solo GR 60. When I attempted 61 to see how it went, I couldnt kill the RG by the time the timer ended. My character felt super squishy and I couldn't kill even mundane packs of mobs without some trouble. I realize GR 60 is still substantially shy of the GR 70 Seasonal Journey objective requirement.
I suppose my first question would be... Would you recommend the Shadow Impale build to a player that is attempting to chase the GR70 Seasonal Objective? I have been thinking once I augment my pieces with R55 Augments, I might be able to scarcely complete GR70, but I am not sure.
If anyone has any tips for me to steer my character in the right direction to be able to complete GR70 with this set, it would really help!
But, I've found for soloing, aoe is helpful - maybe lose preparation for fan of knives? You'd want a good Lord Greenstone's Fan for it though. I manage to keep my hatred up fine without a Karlei's Point.
I also don't uise focus/restraint - do you find those necessary to go up past GR 60?
