Kanai's Cube

Elusive Ring / Convention of Elements, have either equipped and other in cube.

Aquila Cuirass or Frostburns in cube and equip the other. (As on higher end pushing Aquila in cube is better as Shadow Chest equipped may give you better secondary rolls).

Legendary Gems;

Bane of the Powerful can be replaced by Pain Enhancer (or even Bane of the Stricken). I prefer playing with Powerful but mostly its matter of taste on the playstyle, with Powerful you are purely packhunter and lack abit on skills killing on trash but the packs melt very fast.


Companion can be swapped to boar if you lack on toughness, if you do lower content and speeds you can use bats too for hatred as you don't need the extra damage anyways on speeds and then also naturally change Strongarms to nemesis, also lighting spec is easier hatred managment speed content wise.

Socketed Gems;

Diamond in helm and chest/pants use either diamonds or emeralds, depending how much of a glass cannon you want to play.

Paragon to vitality, usually start with 300 paragons to Vitality but adjust lower when you get stronger. Optimal health is 600-700k.

Aps> 2.0 + more specific I recommend d3 planned gear optimizing

Area Damage atleast 75 % preferred 100% +

Secondary rolls: Life Per Kill is very important in this so try to build on that, especially on belt and pants and everything extra is very nice this adds alot of survivability. All gear that is not all res gear if you can physical resistances are the best. Reduced damage from melee/ranged on you neck and shadow chest are very good ones too. These are for end optimizing however.

Build Guide

If you are new to the build, remember you are melee player (read the set description) - The Dawn needs to be cubed, not equipped - I get asked this sometimes. Also you are elite killer so remember to keep moving from pack to pack, do not spend too much time on trying to kill the trash.
