Kanai's Cube

Elusive Ring / Ring of Royal Grandeur, have either equipped and other in cube.


5 pieces of Shadow set and 2 pieces of new Aughilds with RoRG crants you max power of both sets.


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.


Skills:

Companion can be swapped to wolf if you lack on damage, if you lack on toughness keep boar, 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. 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 700-800k, so obviously depending of your gear.


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

Area Damage atleast 75 % preferred 100% +

CDR needed on 1 item 8% + dawn in cube and Gogok progging to keep Vengeance up all times, if you have it on two items then you can have 100% uptime on bladed armor also but lack some damage.


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/aughild 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.
