    What are people finding best for farming?

    I've been doing a lot of Grifts for items (starting at 1 getting to about 25).

    Witch doctor makes a mess of them. haha. But I'm not getting much... Only bonus is the shards, cause I've been using them on my wizard to get her upto scruff...

    Damn. I get 9/19/26 :D

    I finish a grift26 with about 9:30 to spare. It gets steadily worse from there.

    But I've noticed I get about 120 shards from a single grift25/26. So that's a bonus

    i often get GR52 keys from teh GR42 as well, which is good for stocking up on higher GR keys to push with.

    Right so, in order to get the full benefit of ZUni, I need a mana spender that will hit all enemies easily. I've been using Haunt, but that can only hit two at a time...

    I'm thinking of going back to Firebats. Thoughts?

    8 minutes 31 seconds tier 31. The tier 30 I did was like 11 minutes 40 :D

    Still yet to find an ancient IK BB.
    Kadala and drops are both trolling me always get crappy 3.1-3.3k dps drops. Pumped around 50k shards into kadala for nothing so far.

    I've done a few low 40 GR with a more dps oriented 6 waste/2 BK set but I've found that the barb lacks survivability. Probably have to fish around for a decent maras now to progress further.
    Been experimenting with a few different skill slots instead of rend for tanky 6 waste/ 4IK build but as others have pointed out it's a bit slow :((

    I settled on this after nearly 200k shards and 2 weeks straight of t6 rifts..... I don't think 7% IAS is worth taking over that much vitality, so I'm happy.

    Check my gear/spec, most people with semi reasonable gear should be able to do GR45~ with BK and FNR rings.

    Had a go at your spec yesterday r3s, sure is fun. I run merciless assault rune on FC, you can almost clear all trash with FC, so damn fast. Then just WW to kill the stronger guys, with Weapons master and the BK set, you hardly run out of fury even when using sprint.

    Mad build mate. :thumbup:

    I like my current iteration as its very easy to change from speed to high gr spec.

    All i changed between is warzechen/parthans and IP rune Bravado/ignorance is bliss or iron hide.

    I found bravado with POC belt lasts a decent chunk of time over chilaniks chain and requires me to change less gear :)

    Many use FC - stamina for extra fury but i found in high gr's it was better to used weapons mastery passive and cold to stun groups ( and the RG ) and proc the parthans

    Makes the build more consistent in higher grfits too, especially when i am running GR48+ without diamond in my helm, it gives me a bit more crowd control between IP cooldowns.


    Strongarms are good for the dps boost as well if your doing speed runs :)

    I'm the opposite with my wd. I have so much trouble through the beginning. But my pets absolutely own the rift guardian. With each pet doing at least 400% of my weapon damage.

    Yeah, I have an awesome POC and chanalinks, but found the bravado rune to be better as it knocks up to proc stong arms.

    I heard people are using zei's gem to proc parthans too for high GR's. :thumbup:

    The guide i followed:
    http://www.diablofans.com/builds/55091-fetish-horde-2-2-greater-rifting-solo-build

    My build and gear, etc....
    http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/mrturkey-1114/Hermoine/60392788
    http://us.battle.net/d3/profile/mrturkey-1114/hero/60392788

    What weapons u got?

    I have both sets, but find the Zuni build better for my full sets so far. For me it depends on what weapon i get next. Really want a dagger of darts or for Jades, a Wormwood or Furnace.

    Cheers

    PS: this is what i was following for Jades

    So far I have a full set of zuni. I'm using the offhand instead of the ring, but I'm trying to change it, because I have an ancient mojo that channels like, 30% of my damage to my dogs, and has about 10% more damage than the Zuni off hand.

    I've got an Ancient Barber which I'm also trying to replace. The shards. My god the shards. haha

    Currently my mana spender is haunt, cause I still have 2 pieces of Jade on (I think?) haha. Either way, it seems to hit enough enemies that I get the 275% extra damage from my pets.

    I'm finding mass amounts of enemies difficult, but at about grift30, the rift guardian is gone in 15-20 seconds. He just gets molested by like, 28 pets :D

    I used locust swarm/pestilence to dot all the enemies.

    Pretty sure they patched it recently so that it reapplied for the bonus.

    Hmm. That could be interesting... Cause I also have a belt that slows enemies by %80 if they're effected by Locust swarm... But... I also have my witching hour...

    I've got like, 44% crit hit chance and about 500% crit hit damage.

    So continue using haunt with the Witching Hour? Or use Locust Swarm with the other belt?

    Also, I don't have any Jade set benefit any more, so I've got no problem cutting it now. haha

    Yeah my gear isn't built towards CDR... plus I still need to find a decently rolled maras ammy with a socket. I've finished GR 41-42 with a similar FC build. No cdr on my BK weapons and shoulders means FC is down most of the time. Still fun though.
    Will look at using gogok instead of PE for 3rd leg gem.
