The idea behind this build is to boost your partners damage as much as possible, whilst cc'ing as much as possible and staying alive.

Cooldown reduction is necessary to have 100% up time on Vengeance for Damage Reduction, and on Fan of Knives.

Attack Speed as high as possible to constantly make use of the bola's to freeze and slow your enemies. The crowd control is a vital part of this build.

I currently sit on 2.6 APS, and with 50% chance of freeze from the Bola rune, you get essentially 1s freeze every second guaranteed.

Paragon Priorities


Movement Speed

Maximum Resource


Attack Speed
Cooldown Reduction
Critical Hit Chance
Critical Hit Damage


Resist All
Life Regeneration


Life on Hit
Resource Cost Reduction
Area Damage
Gold Find

Paragon points are quite simple, Core just stack movement max and vitality max.

Attack speed and cooldown are the only real stats we need here, the rest is useless in this build, you are doing no damage.

Defense priority is there but eventually you will max the entire tree, ideally.

Utility, life on hit is the only requirement as we don't need area damage or RCR... we don't spend hatred.

Build Guide

-- Youtube video to be added in the near future --

So, welcome to my first ever published guide for a unique build and play style for group play. With the right mind set this has a potential to set a new meta in group play!

With this unique playstyle, you can commit to duo play and more by being a zDPS DH using crowd control and damage modifiers for your team mates.

It's a very simple way, you keep marked for death rune on the floor in the front of the pack, You stand in front of your team and spray the bola's at the enemies. Your team will get A LOT of increase damage due to MfD, Oculus, Overwhelming, and your debuffs from gems etc.

This build is insanely fun to play, the control is brilliant.

Things to remember:

You must have the CDR around 40% (Not including gem), this will allow you to have 100% uptime on Vengeance (Damage reduction!!), Fan of Knives (Increased Armor!).

Your attack speed should be 2.5APS+ to keep that consistent freeze up.

And that's all there is to it!

I hope your enjoy this new and unique build/playstyle.

Huge Credit to my team mate and best pal, Kirilea - this build has stemmed from both our minds together!

Ace of Blades (EU) clan are recruiting in Diablo 3 if you are looking for a casual guild of people who push at their own pace and don't just follow the current meta, self discovery and learning and just damn right have some chilled fun...!
