If you watched the video you already know, that there are THREE Jade setups that are widely used.They vary from EASY to HARD. I prefer to call them "Beginner", "Expert" and "Master" (PS: Confused Master and Expert definitions in video, forgive me this little blooper :) Master is supposed to be HARDER than Expert..) Listed here is an Expert setup, which i prefer to play with.


It's not a "weak" setup, it's just easy to play and it's good to start with this setup if you never played Jade.

1) Wormwood in cube.

2) Unity instead of COE. Double the toughness.

3) Belt of Transcendence


This is harder to play, because you need to cast Locust Swarm manually, but gives 50% more Elite damage.

1) Furnace in cube.

2) Unity instead of COE. Double the toughness.

3) Belt of Transcendence


This is hardest way to play, but results in most DPS if you successfully harvest during Poison rotation.

1)Haunting Girdle instead of Belt of Transcendence (more damage via 2pc bonus, faster stricken stacking, but less toughness overall, and more problems with Rift Guardians, because NO MEAT SHIELDS). Belt of Transcendence is a huge survival boost.

2) Furnace in cube

3) Convention of the Elements instead of Unity

Other options:

Henry's Perquisition/Thing of the Deep instead Vile Hive. Less Damage, problems from losing Pestilence, but more damage mitigation across the rift if you can kill mobs fast.

Follower: Enchantress of Templar with CC and Ess of Johan

Eung-Jan-Do with Oculus Ring & Unity

or Thunderfury + Wyrdward+ Oculus Ring (if no Unity)

Gems in gear: Chest & Pants: TOPAZ, Helm: Diamond.

Build Guide

Hello everyone!

In patch 2.6.1 Jade finally got the necessary toughness AS WELL AS the important damage boost. Now GR100 is a reality for many players and not just the p3000 ones.

The video guide is VERY detailed so please watch it.

To cut it short: always try to maintain 10 SH stacks for DPS and damage reduction, group mobs with Piranhado, cast Locust Swarm once (Expert and Master setup),haunt, harvest them. Spam haunt to reduce SH cooldown, harvest. Repeat. ALWAYS chain-harvest during poison rotation!

1) Stack AS MUCH AREA DAMAGE AS POSSIBLE. CDR is not mandatory anymore, but still good if you can find a spot for it.

2) You need very specific mob type to be able to complete highest grift possible. Basically, you need a lot of small mobs to harvest over and over again + some fat mobs dying between them. Best mobs are zombies and skeletons/summoners + slow fat mobs like Golgors/Hulks/Unburied.

3) In 2.6.1 i usually run with Pestilence instead of Cloud of Insects simply because toughness became much better.
