Diablo 3 / Re: Season 16: The Season of Grandeur
« on: January 22, 2019, 01:05:32 PM »
That is an Impale DH, lot's of fun if you want to kill mainly elites.

The build generates hatred through the use of it's weapon which has the unique property of returning 15 hatred for every enemy you impale that you have already impaled. Through clever use of a couple of different runes on the skill impale, you will hit multiple targets with every shot of impale - provided there are enough enemies around you - and you will generate more hatred than the cost of each impale.

I've used this build quite a bit and it's a tough build and the main build I use for HC - but - you have to keep the various defensive buffs active otherwise, you will die suddenly. Best at Greater Rifting. You hit one enemy with 75,000% weapon damage every time you throw impale, so you can kill anything fast, but one at a time. It is meant to be played as a vault to elite, kill him, vault to next elite, kill him, etc. Very fast play style. It becomes so powerful it doesn't work well in T13 because you one shot everything and you don't get to impale enough things a second time to continue generating hatred.

I also use the Multi shot UE set for HC and it's fun, allows you to stay way back from danger and you can proceed cautiously killing everything from range. Pretty tough build, easy to play and you kill sreenfuls of enemies at a time. Very fun and best for Torment level farming.

At the beginning of this season I used the Nats/Marauder 6/4 piece combo and the main damage dealers are the Sentries so you again get to stay back away from danger and have the added bonus of having all pets at all times. The pets not only tank and give a number of passive benefits, but they also give a range of active solid benefits on a 30 sec cooldown timer. Super effective skill for this build. I came away from it with the idea it might be the best DH HC build. I'm playing SC atm, but when I return to HC, I will definitely try one of these. It's a little more work than the UE Multishot, but if you're young and looking to be active you'll like it.

Demon Hunter Impale build is pretty tanky. You move from pack to pack and leave/avoid trash.

There are a couple of Monk builds as well that I enjoyed playing HC, particularly the wave of light. It's a screen killer and has decent toughness.

I had a HC Wizard a long time ago and really enjoyed playing it but that was before several major changes to the sets. I've tried DMO and it is tanky but finicky.

Another good option is to see what HC builds are pulling on the Leaderboards, particularly the GR level needed to get on the leaderboard since most of those folks won't have 4,000+ paragon.

One place where I have real trouble in HC is if I go for Kanai's cube too soon. There are so may little poison throwing bugs that they often drive me completely off the floor.

Lastly, if in doubt, run away.

Anybody have any HC advice for this patch?

Don't die.

I found the first two episodes enjoyable but it deteriorated after that.
Not so much because of the new Doctor, but the plots were just... off.


I never watched Dr Who before this season - so I can't compare it against any other season or Doctor - but I have a good friend that has watched forever. Thought I'd give it a go this season and like Silverthorn, quite enjoyed the first couple of episodes and hoping the last couple were just a dip blip and it gets back on track this week.

Yeah...that analogy doesn't work for me.

It is not that Blizzard deserves the hate that they received; it's that they earned it.

Agreed. Well earned. They demonstrated a clear and present disconnect with their audience. I can't imagine a greater corporate faux pas.  It's difficult to come up up an apt analogy.

Game is obtuse and tells you nothing.

It has always been so. I thank the friendly folks here for all the information over the years. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Google is also you friend.

I'm going to play a SC Necro in Europe. My buddy is still trying to get his tabs.

Been nearly 2 years since I left my company and I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Would still like to do something part time from home so I can continue spending time with my younger son who is 9. He's a soccer fanatic so we been watching a lot of World Cup action.

I've been eager to move out of the city for years and a few months ago my wife decided she wanted too as well. So for the past couple of months I've been trying to catch up on 15 years of maintenance in order to get the house ready for sale. Just hit the market last week so we'll see what happens.

My older son is still walking that fine line between trying to decide whether to have a life or smoke drugs all day. He's 21 going on about 18 now I think. Fingers crossed.

Wow, very cool.

I never really believed Sssithy was a real person.

Congrats and Happy Birthday!

Monkey Kings Garb is probably the easiest set dungeon I've ever done, mercifully.

I thought you had gone into hiding or something.  :-)

Not into hiding exactly, but I haven't played much in a few weeks. Too many months without any changes.

I liked it and I don't watch Family Guy. The bits I've seen of FG haven't interested me at all. But I did enjoy Orville and will watch it again if there is a season 2.

I liked Discovery better, but I thought Orville was fun with good production values and a nice, dry sense of humour for the most part.

Thanks for the replies. The idea isn't to be competitive, it's to have some fun with a play style many of us aren't familiar with.
