I followed Quin69's original U6 template for season 4 (I'm aware of the leaderboard change to CoE, but don't have the CHC for that yet).
I can clear a GR58 with time to spare. In GR59, it seems that not only do I fail, it takes me like 23 minutes. I generally skip yellow packs, and try to kill blues if there's density. I'm generally not dying unless I screw up in a GR59, so toughness seems ok. I've cleared a GR65 in a 4-man group, and that went ok and I felt that I was contributing.
Am I missing something fundamental on my gear? I have all ancient gear now -- is it just that I had lousy ancient gear?
Is it just RNG in the GR so that I'm getting low density and need to fish for better?
Your biggest problem i think is that you are missing 250% CHD on your gear which is really really bad because you have the 100% crit procc and it is a huge difference if you have 360% CHD or 610% - i had 604% with my BP setup
You should definitely try to get Dex-CHD-CDR Rings and a Cold-CHD-Dex Hellfire amulet as well as Gloves with CHD and CDR, also your Hellfire should have a better passive so you can use either Determination if you are not snapshotting (which you shouldn't really need before 65) or Mythic Rythmn.
If you want to get way higher you should also try to get a Fist of Az with Vit, at least i always preferred to have a little bit more Health.
Your Playstyle as you describe it should not be an issue, generally you should already have or will get a feeling for what is worth killing and what to skip.
Regarding CoE, the BP build will work quite well too, i cleared 65 with BP and then 66 and 67 with CoE, but the 66 i would have cleared anyway because it was just a dream rift.
With the gear you have (dual ancient weapons) you should be able to clear G60 with a more standard setup (either unity or coe in cube, cc on gear) easily. I'm working on 58 with non ancient weapons right now, and I haven't even thrown in coe yet.
I too am having some issues, I've had horrible luck getting better uliana's though. With what I have I've cleared GR55 and missed a GR56 by 2 seconds. I can consistently clear GR55, but cannot get any further. I have also had bad luck with HF.
Thanks Soul, I did a bunch of HF farming lady night and got about 12 rings, 2 legendaries but the passives sucked. So I'm using one for now, missed a 56 by about 45 secs last night. I'm hoping to get a better HF and better stats on a restraint and focus soon, plus some ancient pieces of U6.
Just hit 60 with my U6 monk today and finished the whole season journey. This thread inspired me to push through the last bit, get a good rift, and win. I got my barb (HOTA) and monk (U6) to GR58 and kept getting stuck and frustrated. Fianlly committed to U6 since I like the playstyle and got a win!
