GR 70 Starter Gear (Season 18) Build Guide:

This build basically turns you into a tank vacumn. Meaning you hop on the horse, go from pack to pack, and condemn everything into you while watching a hot gooey mess explode on their faces and gaining you that sweet sweet paragon XP. You'll be using the Akkhan set for this build which excels at a few various things such as speeds, greater rifts, and even bounties with the power of the pony.

How To Play: Basically you walk through the rift or greater rift like you own the effin joint and condemn everything back to hell while slashing it up to keep defenses up while using the utility skills to stay alive. Also with the power of God & Anime we can transform into a Prophet gaining a metric ton of armor that keeps all those pesky hits bouncing right off of us like dollar bills on a lady of the evenings booty at 3 in the morning.

Paragon Priorities


Movement Speed
Primary Stat
Maximum Resource


Attack Speed
Cooldown Reduction
Critical Hit Chance
Critical Hit Damage


Resist All
Life Regeneration


Resource Cost Reduction
Area Damage
Life on Hit
Gold Find

(You can go the path you want since you will max out all stats at 800 and then +5 Main Stat forever so it's really up to you but here's a guide anyways)

Max Movement speed ASAP because hot damn 0 % movement speed is hot garbage. After you become a speedy boy move onto either Primary Stat and + 5 Main Stat your life forever or you can max out Maximum Resource as well but I'd prefer the going straight to +5 Main Stat Strat.


You're gonna want to start off with Attack Speed and then go straight into Cool Down. This builds revolves around smacking things for the slash guard bonus as well as Cool Down for allowing us to have our utility and transform ultimate skill up. From there go into the crits as usual for that sweet damage increase.


I find going Life first is important since the first 200 Paragon levels are really easy to obtain. After that go for Resist All and then Armor. Life Regen is last because it does nothing but kind of make your health bar maybe flicker or wait was that your monitor dying? That and the other stats here are so much better in terms of surviving.


Resource Cost Reduction is weirdly effective here at fist due to how much Condemn costs and this will help out a little bit along side using our taunt and slash to gain back our resource. Then go into Area damage, Life On Hit, and Gross - Gold Find. Area Damage will help out a lot with Condemn and Slash. Life On Hit is great due to the fact that we are constantly hitting all of the things. Kapow.
