I've completed all the "hard" stuff for the Conqeror/Stash tab reward, except for completing a T13 rift in 5 minutes. For the conquests I did GR75 ("almost" done, did GR74 in 10minutes), and boss mode which was ok.
Any build tips on how to best try for the T13 in 5 minutes?
- Do I go for manajumas or or a Staff of Chiopetra? (no ancient Sacred Harvester yet..)
- Avarice band + goldwrap, or unity?
- Nemesis, Mantle of channeling, or Coils of the First Spider?
I played around yesterday and with my current gear I couldn't find a combo that had enough, move speed, killing speed and toughness. I always seemed to lack one... I think my best attempt was around 7minutes.
My plan is to start farming T13 even though it's not the optimal setting for me just to see if I can get a random lucky map and hit the 5 min marker, but it would be nice to get some input from other people who done this solo on <800 paragon, (I'm currently at P653).
I have decent helltoth gear as well, if it's much easier with that, but I plan to do my augments on arachyrs (only 2 augments so far though..)
and yes, I know that the easy way is to group up with a high-level guy and let them carry me, but it would be fun to do this solo.
For this challenge there are a couple of things you want to have in mind:
Find a good map on level 1 (Desolate Sands, Oasis, Eternal Woods, Act 1 Highlands etc. something very big and ususally dense)
Teleport out 2 seconds before RG dies
Don't loot RG either
close Rift and loot the RG
If the map sucks, play it normally and loot
As setup I'd go with 5p Helltooth, Taskers, Short Man's Finger, Compass Rose, Traveler's Pledge, Nemesis, Witching Hour, Manajuma's Knife and Mojo.
Let your gargs do the job (kill elites) while you're using the chicken to speed from elite to elite. Just pick up the globes and move on.
Cube should be Furnace, Mask of Jeram and Royal Ring of Grandeur.
I've done this several times now with this setup and with some patience on finding that one map you'll get it done solo.
You could also use Arachyrs but IMHO it's too squishy and you could have some trouble if the elites start to run around so you can't kill them fast enough.
Non-augmented HT should do the trick anyway. Just look for decent rolls (%garg on shoulders, chest and maybe mojo / high CHD & CHC values elsewhere) and you'll be fine.
thanks for the tips, I asume we're talking standard speed-pet gems (BotP, BotT, enforcer)?
I might give HT a try then, just need to level the pet gem I guess.
Put another augment in yesterday and did a GR60 in 4m30s with arachyrs (not using manajumas), I know it doesn't translate to normal rifts but I do get the feeling that 1-2 70ish augments more and I will have enough power to make arachyrs works as well, so I started working on those, we'll see :-)
Yes of course use BotP/BotT/Enforcer as gems with HT/Manajuma. I forgot that - sorry.
Even if the obelisk tells us GR60 = T13 it isn't. Feels more like a little less than T12. If you can nail a GR70 in less than 5min then you're good to go. But it all comes down to map layout while looking for that challenge.
Nemesis is only an option with HT as you won't use Soul Harvest because of the chicken. If you're trying to do it with Arachyr and bats, then Coils is definitely your choice as it's quite an essential item. In normal rifts there can be quite a lot of shrines and pylons if you're lucky so I'd use Nemesis for speedfarming anyways.
Avarice Band & Goldwrap combo is useful, no discussion, but if you really looking to rush as quick as possible, Witching Hour should be #1 choice for belt. If EW is useful or not is open for discussion. Of course you can use any combination here which nets a good damage boost for your gargs as speed killing is key.
If you're really dying a lot because you lack toughness a Unity is useful. Pick a decent amulet (%cold/CHC/CHD) accordingly.
