Hi all, this season I rolled a DH and I love the hero and the playstyle, but I've encountered a wall. With my current setup I'm unable to push past GR73. I finished GR 72 and 73 with just seconds remaining, the highest I can always complete is about 70.
I'm alternating between magefist and visage in the cube. Rolled chc/chd whereever I could, swap gems for all res, putting more paragon points in vit, I don't know anymore. In a way to find an edge ive just started to augment my gear, not that it helps a lot.
Anyone got any advice for me? I see other people clearing higher rifts easily, I don't really see where I am seriously lacking.
My main problem is either I die often or I lack damage. Any elite with a succesful teleport/wormhole can instagib me. I can run the awareness passive and a ton of all-res, but then my problem is my damage is lacking. I don't really know what to invest in anymore.
You need some RCR ... being able to Multishot for longer is the damage you are lacking. For that matter a cubed Cindercoat is a MUST with the UE Fire build. Also for playing solo the revamped Oculus Ring for the companion is a MUST.
Roll helm MS damage to vit. Vit rolls really high on helms so the MS damage is less useful because your quiver diminishes it returns. Use Visage of Gunes in your cube. This will work as long as you fix your vengeance.
I don't see enough Cool down reduction. You need 36.33% overall or better for permanent Vengeance. Without this you don't have enough damage or thoughness.
It looks like you have well over 55%CHD. So roll chd off your focus for CDR. Then use the numlock trick to keep it on.
You also need to augment armor.
Your Templar needs attack speed rolled onto his jewelry. You don't care that he does any damage, you care that he procs the ring and neck more often.
You should be able to do at least 75 if you push. Don't get me wrong, you will have to get lucky with pylons, a little. And you have to be aggressive and push past mobs to aggro them and kite back.
If you want to push into the 80s you need augments on all your gear. You also need as much Area Damage as you can get. Without the augments you will not have enough armor or damage. As you have seen things at about 72 one shot you. Once you get half your armor augmented, the won't 1 shot you until you push 76. Full augments at rank 75 should push you onto the 80s. Start by augmenting your gear to at least 72. Then after a couple don't augment below 75. You will have to redo those gems if you do all 70s.
