This build is for pushing high challenge rifts. We are able to effectively do much more damage to monsters that are much higher CR than us, See the descriptions below to find out why. (See video attached for this build in action)

Head: We use "Boundless Ingenuity" to increase our charges on "Daring Swing". This is our main form of escape and is absolutely required in order for you to survive. The extra charge has saved me from death countless times.

Shoulders: "Shadowstalker's Spaulders" is used to increase the maximum charges on "Spinning Chakram".

Chest: "Causticity" is a new chest piece that was added with the most recent patch so it's not available on this website yet. That's why it wasn't selected above. This chest is one of the two main reasons this build works so well. Rain of Vengeance now also corrodes enemy armor, increasing damage taken by 2% for 3 seconds, stacking up to 5 times, effectively giving us an additional 10% damage against monsters while they are inside the "Raid of Vengeance" circle.

Legs: We use "Slayer's Breeches" here and this is the second reason why this build works so well. On top of the 10% increased damage we get from the "Causticity" chest piece, we get an additional 20% damage while enemies are getting hit by "Spinning Chakram" which they will be getting hit with it constantly thanks to our "Offhand"

Offhand: "Blade Thrower" causes "Spinning Chakram" to now fire a stationary chakram that continually damages all enemies, but it loses it's extra charges, that's why we use "Shadowstalker's Spaulders" shoulders to increase our charges back up to 2.

Main Hand: "Dreadlands Requital" simply increases the damage we deal with "Rain of Vengeance"

Set Items: When pushing high challenge rifts, "Combat Rating" is king when it comes to set items. You'll always want to use your highest CR set items no matter what, even if you lose the set bonus. However, assuming you're going for min/max, you'll want to shoot for 2 piece Shal'Baas, 2 piece Chattertooth, and 2 piece Exemplar's Urge OR 4 piece Chattertooth, 2 piece Shal'Baas. You can really mix and match these 3 sets however you like.

Main Attack: You can use EITHER crossbow shot OR explosive arrow for this build. They both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Crossbow Shot: Allows you to move while attacking, which is essential in many situations where getting hit will kill you, but does less damage than Explosive Arrow.

Explosive Arrow: Since we're not using the pierce offhand for crossbow shot, we could actually use Explosive Arrow which does more damage, however, you need to shoot and move, shoot and move, but this occurs quicker than you may think, so it's really not that bad. ALSO, this opens up the "Grenades" ultimate which knocks enemies away and fits in nicely with this build, as you can knock enemies back into your chakrams and rain of vengeance.

Thank you for reading the build, hopefully you guys enjoy it. If you have any questions I can be reached on Discord at Gamercop#7973
