Hey there, demon hunter friends, I have been working on some content for Season 6 and wanted to share a bit with you all about the builds for next patch, I will be updating all my dfans text guides for 2.4.1 and will compile them into one thread for reference like last season (click here to see), but as a lot of people prolly know the DH builds are all basically the same so I will not being doing full video guides on all the same setups. There are only a couple builds I didn't have time last season to make videos on the 'LoN FoK GR' (legacy of nightmares fan of knives greater rifting) build and 'ZDH' (zero dps demon hunter) build. Since it seems the LoN FoK GR build will be the top solo push build and the ZDH will have a proper spot in group mostly thanks to the multiplicative wolf change, I will be making videos on these two setups soon.
Those two builds are more mid-late season progression setups, for now I just wanted to quickly share the build I will use at the start of season 6 with a short walkthrough of the early season journey for newer players.
short description: early season build, torment speed farm, easy to gear, easy to play, very fast rift clears
My build's foundations are all optimized for solo intermediate players, for beginner, advanced, and group variations please read the text descriptions! If you find these helpful do not forget to give them an upvote, please and thank you! My guides will continue to be polished, updated, and current. If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know! you can contact me either here on dfans or on my Live Stream
Hello Philo, was waiting for a thread of yours about 2.4.1
The 4man GRs support build will be the same as 2.4?
pretty much, yes, there is a few itemization options (M2 or UE4) but the basic idea and spec is the same, just slap on all the damage buffs / reductions you can and then there isn't too much flexibility left after that.
Thanks for the build, Philos! Here's a real dumb question from someone who basically never plays DH (I gotta admit I treat this class with a little bit of disrespect, but I'm considering maybe just giving it a try for the opening weekend since for early Torment farming the DH seems crazy overpowered compared to most other classes). So, my question is... what would be the "easiest" path to a quick'n'dirty GR60 build? Background: I'm gonna play the opening weekend only to get the stash tab, and the solo GR60 is gonna be the last step in this process. Obviously the strongest DH GR spec is LoN but that's not an option, and I'd also avoid builds that need super rare items (like Kridershot) or bounty items (RoRG). So I guess any of the four class sets would work - is this spec here also a good choice for GR60 or would you say it's easier to get N6 or UE geared up (I guess at around paragon 300-400 one should have that stuff)?
what would be the "easiest" path to a quick'n'dirty GR60 build?
really GR 60 is pretty easy with any DH set, getting marauder for free from the gift would make it the easiest but they would all be really easy, with the power creep and nerfs to GR's UE would be really easy as well, perhaps whichever setup you get an ancient weapon for first would be the easiest, not that you need an ancient weapon to do GR 60, but that would make it much easier.
