Finding Princess Lilian - The video of us finding her
The Cosmic Wings
Edit: I've been frequently updating the guide as I feel like something is needed to be added. You might see something different compared to the last time you checked this guide.
Since im a new player I don't know a lot about builds and classes so I only mentioned the fast builds that I know of. Feel free to mention about the missing builds or if you have a better one. These builds are made by other players.
The core items you need in Chicken and Danetta DH are only main and off hand weapons so they are the easiest to start farming with.

Hello everyone. After 12+ hours of farming of RBG's for 15days in a row and 304 portals, I finally got them and I have been noting down most of the goblin's locations as I wanted to share the stats, and my/our rotation to help people who has been farming/wants to farm. I will try to make this guide as brief as possible. This is the first time I'm making a guide so please pardon me if it looks not well made.
Some Information about Princess Lilian, Whimsydale and Rainbow Goblins
I would like to correct a common mistake first, Princess Lilian spawns from another unique monster pool. (Tubbers, Nightmarity, Team unicorn, Princess Stardust, etc.) You will always see Super Awesome Cake or Evil Oliver in Whimsydale. Lilian will spawn as an extra, the 2nd unique mob. She DOES NOT spawn instead of Evil Oliver or Super Awesome Cake.
The difficulty does not matter. It won't affect Princess Lilian's or RGB's spawn chance. I farmed on normal difficulty.
It took 304 portals for me, so approximately %0,3 chance of Princess Lilian spawn chance, atleast for my journey. But remember, its all RNG, It can take just a few portals for you, or more than me (hopefully won't).
As you can see, Princess Lilian looks different from the other ponies. Only 1 other mob looks excatly the same as her, Princess Stardust (I really hope that never happens to you ) which is another irrelevant extra unique might spawn from the 2nd unique mob pool.
This is how would you see a Rainbow Goblin on the minimap and while it is sitting at somewhere. %80 of the time it sits and wait to be found at somewhere, channeling the portal. Sometimes it jumps out of the portal out of no where when you get close to its location. If you want to share it with someone not in the party, you have to keep your distance to RGB and invite others. If you get too close to it, even if you don't attack, it will start running around and you have to kill it before it escapes. Remember %85 of the time you will hear it's sqeuaking sound before you see it. All of the goblins makes the same sound, expect the blue one (don't waste time to kill it) has a deeper voice.
You don't need to be in the map which the Rainbow Goblin was killed in, being in the same party is enough. You can still teleport to the player who killed it and get in to the Whimsydale portal.
Rainbow Goblin (CAN't spawn via a bandit shrine) spawn chance is around %3-4 from what I have observed. But remember, it's all RNG. Upon its death, he will make a portal to Whimsydale (not Whimsyshire) where Lilian can possibly spawn. Only the people who were in the same party when RBG got killed can access to the Whimsydale. You can only find her in Whimsydale. Once you get in to Whimsydale, make sure you check every single corner. She can spawn even next to Oliver / Cake.
Only 1 Whimsydale can occur in one game. Killing more than 1 RBG's in the same game will teleport you to the same Whimsydale. So once you kill a RBG and clear Whimsydale reset the game.
IMPORTANT ! !!!! Make sure everyone gets in to Whimsydale at the same time, if someone kills Princess Lilian before you get in, you won't get the wings. She can spawn right in front of the portal you enter. !!!!!
Farming for RBG's can be discouraging. Don't get demotivated if you can't find RBG for a while. I had many instances that almost 2 hours of no RBG even though we were actively farming for it as 4 people. But sometimes we found 2-3-4 times in a row. We even found 8 times in a row, but that was extreme luck. You will eventually find one, just keep farming efficiently.
If you already made up your mind, don't give up ! I knew if I gave up I would never get my wings. I've tracked and noted the goblins to keep myself motivated and share with other farmers to help them a bit. Consistent farming might get extremly boring and it is not suitable for everyone. You don't have to farm like me, take breaks whenever you feel fatigued or bored. I also took those breaks but tried to keep them to minimum.
- Lower & mute any volume EXCEPT Effects and Master Volume. Most of the time goblins makes a squeaking sound before you are able to see them. This is very important, I have found many RBG's without seeing them at first.
It is THE MOST important thing in farming RBG. You and your party should not waste a minute while hunting. Don't waste time on killing/looting mobs or any other goblin except rainbow.
-Join "Rainbow Goblin" "Rainbow Goblin Farm" "Farm Cosmic Wings" "Cosmic Wings Season" and other active communities to find people for farming together. ( I have just created one, called RBG Hunting if you would like to join)
-Do not allow any leechers in your party, make sure everyone has a speed build (chicked WD, dash monk, etc.) Always try to farm as a group, the more people you have in your group the more Rgb you will find.
-The slowest member should take the shortest act, (a3 or a5), act1 for the fastest member. Your clear time of your party for the maps I will share down below should not take more than 6-7 minutes. If its taking any longer, someone is leeching, does not have a speed build or trying to explore the whole map which is a big mistake.
-After everyone finishes their acts, each member should type "Done + act". Once everyone is done, type "new game" so everyone logs out for reset. Reseting fast is another important element of efficiency.
-If you find a goblin in any map except than P.Fortress level 1 and 2, go to the next map because except those 2 the maps in your rotation will never contain a second goblin.2.The Acts & RotationSome zones has much higher chance to spawn a goblin compared to the others. You and your group should only search them. I will only mention those maps/acts.
If you are solo farming, I suggest checking the total Rainbow Goblin stats down below and making a route including only the maps that had high amount of rgb's. For example I found 49 goblins in 50 minutes only doing Act 5 rotation. The more goblin you find, the higher chance of encountering a RBG.
Sorry for my long loading screens, FPS drops and navigation errors. You can do much better than me.
-How to Clear Acts
Act 1. Sample video https://youtu.be/6J_vHiXjnAw
Southern Highlands( explore only until you find Cave of the Moon clan)
Cave of the Moon Clan 1&2
Northren Highlands ( Go upstairs, to Leoric's Hunting Ground)Explore LHG, then teleport to Royal Crypts
Cathedral level 2
Ancient Waterways Western-Eastern Channels 1&2
Teleport to City of Caldeum, go directly to the sewers and explore it
Howling Plateau (can be excluded, not as efficient as other maps)
Stinging Winds (Go south, enter Black Canyon Mines)Explore only the entrance of BCM
The Core of Arreat
Tower of the Cursed & Damned 1&2
The Bridge of Korsikk, go north and (Fields of Slaughter) Find the cave, if it is " Caverns of Frost" search it, if "Icefall caves" skip it.
I don't recommend doing any maps on act 4, only if one of the party member is faster than you he/she should check Gardens of Hope Tier level 1-2-3 until everyone has cleared their rotation.
You will always take the first right when you start exploring P.Fortress level 1 and 2.
P.Fortress 1, after you finish searching level 1, teleport to 2 via the map.These maps always spawns either 2 or 0 goblins, so if you find one look for the second.
The RGB stats that I had noted (approximately the last 250) :
Cave of the Moon Clan -22
Leoric's Hunting Grounds-15
Cathedral level 1-3
Cathetral level 2-11
Cathedral level 3-3
Weeping Hollow-1 (not checked frequently)
Black Canyon Mines-2
Sewers of Caldeum-8
Heart of damned-1
Tower of cursed- 17
Fields of slaughter- 3
Tower of Damned- 9
Core of arreat-6
The battlefields- 4 (not checked frequently)
Caverns of Frost- 10
Gardens of hope tier 2-1
Gardens of hope tier 3-1
Gardens of hope tier 1-4
Pandemonium Fortress 2-33
Pandemonium Fortress 1-26
Shout out to my farming friends who spent dozens of hours farming with me KraXaX(the mvp), P4CHO, NupeQ, SmOK, TomTG, I would never be able to find the wings without you guys.
I wish all of you the best luck and I hope it won't take as long as me to get your wings.
My battle tag is Dreamwalker#21489 Feel free to ask any questions.
One reason why people put max paragon in MS might be because it's so damn annoying to check "how much do I need for max MS". Also, if you switch specs using the armory and put on different boots, paragon doesn't change - so you need to swap 26 points from main stat into MS when switching from no MS boots to MS boots.
If you're at 15000 main stat, 26 more paragon points make so little difference (less than one percent damage), but missing 12% MS can be really huge, so many people don't care, max MS, and just never look at it again.
Don't think it will really matter looking at your previous characters, if you are uncertain what you wanna play i would suggest having a look at this video by Rhykker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87mSuEY6tlw
He goes over most of the builds that are really promising for this season, see if there's something you like from those builds, there are like 40-50 builds that work really well atm.
Just uploaded the new version, for Season 12, patch 2.6.1
Full details at:
(Note that my Sprinter Guide will be completely overhauled in time for Season 13.)
MAIN VIDEO: https://youtu.be/wwoKjixKrO0
Season 12 is right behind the corner and i wanted to compile a solid video for the community, showcasing all best barb builds possible. I went through all of them during PTR and pushed to the maximum limits possible for my paragon and gear. Some builds are a blast from the past while some are completely new.
You can find all builds here as usual: http://www.angryroleplayer.com/diablo-3-builds/barbarian-builds/
1) Immortal King's HAMMER OF THE ANCIENTS GR100+
2) Raekor's HAMMER OF THE ANCIENTS GR100+
3) Bul-Kathos's WHIRLWIND GR100+
4) Istvan's WHIRLWIND GR100+
5) IK6/R4 CHARGE GR100+

check Rhykker's video addressing this topic
with 2.6.1 live now and the new season coming up, I have been busy with a few updated guides and want to share them with you. They are mostly video-based, but experienced players should get a good idea by skimming through them and taking a look at the d3planner links. DH is looking strong next patch and the solo build diversity is the highest it's ever been, with 5 different builds all performing at almost the same level: Shadow's Impale, UE Multishot, UE Gen, Natalya and Marauder can all be expected to clear up to around Tier 110 this season with a gap of maybe 1-2 tiers between the best and worst build. A 100+ is quite doable for anyone who plays any of these builds well with a somewhat optimized character.
For that purpose, I start out with an overview of all solo builds that you can check out if you are not aware of all of them. This should give you a good idea of what they look like and what you need for them. In that video's description I also have d3planner setups and links to full guides for each of them, like a little build hub (video).
Since Marauder's and Impale didn't really change much besides numbers buffs, I didn't record new guides for them, but the old ones are still valid. I did, however, create updated diablofans + youtube guides for UE Multishot in T13 (with some significant changes) and UE in GRs, since it's the first time that build is actually competitive. Besides pushing, Multishot will also do really well in GR90-95, where optimized characters can expect ~3min average clears. This build will also be my personal preference for solo during S12.
I also made a new Natalya guide, since I figured that a lot of people are probably not very familiar with it after it has been out of the meta for so long. I think that Natalya with Fan of Knives will be a solid choice for anyone who wants to push high in solo, as it is rather tanky and easy to play once you got the basics down. Furthermore, I made a new variation of it running Shi Mizu and I believe this will outperform the other solo builds by a little bit, however it's very difficult and requires optimized gear + high paragon to make it worth. Personally I'm stoked to play this Shi Mizu variant on my nonseason DH and try to get a nice rank with it once the leaderboards will be unlocked again and I reached a good level on my seasonal character.
For new players, people switching to DH for S12 or just those unfamiliar with Natalya's, I also made a S12 Starter Guide for DHs to give you an idea of how to optimize your path of progression to reach the endgame the quickest way possible (video).
I hope you'll enjoy my guides and revel in the fine art of demon slaying in Season 12! Personally, I will go ham on the first weekend and then slowly work towards ~P1200-1500 and clearing a GR108-110 over the course of the season. Feel free to stop by on my stream to follow my progress!
