With the +100% strafe damage on K'mar Tenclip and Valla's Bequest, combined with the damage buff and damage reduction from the Legacy of Nightmare set, Strafe becomes (in my opinion) the best possible speedfarm build for the Demon Hunter.

Dawn and Visage of Gunes + some cooldown on gear and helm gives 100% uptime on Vengeance, with 50% damage reduction and massive hatred regen from Seethe, allowing you to channel strafe pretty much non stop.

Averice Band and Boon of Horder to make globe pickup a breeze.

Krelm's Buff Belt for 25% extra movement speed

Cindercoat for fire cost reduction and +Fire damage

Mantle of Channeling to buff Strafe damage and reduce damage taken

Witching Hour to push home the massive crit damage potential of the build and for AS since we are not getting it on weapons.

Hexing pants for increased damage and resource regen while moving (and you are always moving)

Firewalkers to make use of the fact you are stacking fire damage and because you are always moving.

Lacunis for the extra AS

Magefists for +fire Damage

Hellfire for the 5th passive. Either Tactical Advantage; Steady Aim or Thrill of the Hunt. If Thrill of the Hunt then drop Bane of the Powerful and use Bane of the Trapped.

Build Guide

Finally a pure Strafe build that delivers on the promise. Requires very little effort to play and is also super fast and smooth. In my opinion this is better than the Unhallowed Multishot speedfarm build. It certainly feels a lot smoother and frankly almost makes speed farming fun.

Play style:

Pop Vengeance, start moving and channel strafe almost non stop as it costs almost nothing with Vengeance up. Vault occasionally in need, and pop fan of knives when strafing through elite packs. If you do run low on hatred pop Preparation.

Any questions or suggestions for improvement let me know. Overall I've been incredibly disappointed with the LoN ringset but it genuinely came in useful for this particular build.
