While using HF/CoE with Henris and Haunt instead of Dogs I could clear 85 in about 13:10. Success depends a lot of density here as you will need big piles to be wrecked by your gargs there. Elite fights were noticeable faster due to better stricken stacks from haunt spam. But it feels more squishy as Henris offers only first-hit-protection.
With EW I wasn't able to clear in time but I had a lot of bad grifts there. Some were pretty close but failed on real bad guards. Here I used Uhkapian Serpent and leeching beasts. I felt a lot safer with this setup.
There have been some threads about the theorycrafting behind these two setups and I think it all comes down to personal preferences. But as higher you get, you'll start to love the extra toughness from EW. So to sum this up, I'd use EW the higher I get.
