a couple weeks ago on the PTR, I did quite a lot of testing around the reworked Holy Point Shot and the new Shadow's builds it enables, and made some guides for them. I've updated them again a little bit now. I have three builds in total depending on what you are going to do: solo pushing, group play, or torment / low GR farm. I hope you will like them!
I know that especially for groups there will be a lot of people asking how viable DH will be compared to Monk and Wiz. The short answer is: we don't know. The long answer is: Monk is probably out entirely because Wiz and DH are new and slightly stronger, and between Wiz and DH there are some differences in how they are played and how strong they are for killing the RG, but overall they will most likely end up at the exact same level.
As for the torment / low GR build, I think especially when farming in groups, this has more potential that UE Multishot, so it's a top notch farming build. And the solo build, it's a little bit behind the other top builds we have on DH, but still top 10 viable.
This build (Solo; Group and Farming) has been my entire focus so far this season and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. However it is not at all clear to me whether I should switch to say (M6 Grenades) for solo pushing when we enter the second half of the season. A few people have suggested M6 Grenades will be the strongest solo push, or maybe LON FOK (a build that I am also considering though I seriously question my ability to play it effectively). Thoughts? ps. I'm on console so first season for me.
In my opinion, best 2 builds for solo push are Impale and UE Granades. Have both and it is effective and funny
Yeah, funnily enough I had since decided if I try another build than Impale it will be UE Grenades. Honestly though, I'm starting to wonder if it is worth the effort as my Impale build is so well optimised I sort of feel like I should just stay with it and keep grinding..
Definitely more fun than Impale (at least for me). I have 3 PA items for that build (2 set items and Wraps of Clar....) so I have decided to try it.
It is not that mobile like Impale (Impale free vault is simply the best) but it can do same/similar GR on solo push. It is up to you.
