Hey what’s up guys, OraK from clan ZE (EU)! I’m back from a long break after Era3 ending and in the very first days, I realised that I needed something fast to farm cause of the work I had to do, mainly grift keys, some mats and grift to lvl up gems up to 80/85! So I’ve made this LoN Sprinter build which basically has the same concept of a LoN Walker but it is definitely more viable on torment 13 and medium tier grift like 70/75! Atm, for this kind of farming purposes I believe this is the fastest WD build because it relies on a lot of boostes from items and skills. Pay attention to 1 thing, to be the fastest wd build doesn’t mean it is the fastest between all classes, cause we can’t manage trashmobs like other classes, we must focus on elites only or we would end finishing 2-3 screens away in case you are in a party. Anyway my medium average clear time for a torment13 or gr70 is about 3mins which is good considering my low paragon and no augmented gear. So this being said, this LoN Sprinter is for players who mainly play WD and had time to gear up all the ancient pieces. This “gear up” part is the most hard one, cause it will take some time and seasonal players may have some troubles at the beginning.
Let’s make a backstep, as i said before, there are already some speedfarm builds for WD, the most known are LoN Walker, which is based on Locust Swarm + Gargs, then there is HT Gargs + Angry Chicken. Honestly, I don’t like the first one since blizz increased torments level. The HT Gargs in stead is the one that I use for bounties cause there are way less elites to proc the core item of every LoN speed build which is In-Geom, while the chicken is the right compromise to perform well for that kind of purpose. About the chicken, it has been excluded from this build for 2 main reasons, first of all cause manajuma set can’t be used with Legacy of Nightmare set and secondly because chicken form doesn’t allow us to cast other skills without interrupting our run and moreover it exposes us to dmg. LoN Sprinter, instead, it is all about refreshing our speed boostes without considering toughness thanks to perma Spirit Walk. Once you proc in-geom you will be refreshing your SW, Horrify and Soul Harvest over and over while haunting for the next elite pack and you only need to pay attention for 1 second when Spirit Walk gets ready again (for people new to the class you may have not noticed an internal cooldown between every SW cast)
Now let's focus on the other stuff, like skills gems and items..
Another useful skill is Piranhado which is very good to help Gargs in the their job. Piranhado is also very important to avoid a weird bug affecting our pets, infact they don't attack enemies if pets are not provoked which means you don't have to engage a pack with Horrify, but you need to cast Piranhado first. In case you notice Gargs not attacking your enemy then just cast Piranhado to interrupt the CC. So remember, once you have seen your next elite, stop for a moment in Piranhado range and cast it, then go in (see the video). To make your gameplay easier, especially during long session of farming, i suggest you to help yourself with minor macro to refresh what you prefer, absolutely don't use programs like AutoHot Key which will cost you a ban.
Now let's talk about the dmg boost. As shown in the video, LoN bonus is pretty much enough for t13, but anyway there are multiple way to increase your power through items, skills and gems. In a pet build you are obviously going to use a Mask of Jeram and Taskers and Theo. Your MoJ doesn't need to be capped at 100%, you only need it as ancient version, because the bonus granted by LoN is higher than the one given by the mask, especially considering that the Mask bonus goes into Elemental dmg calculation so it's not as shown on item description but is lower. Other items are Hexing Pants of Mr. Yang and the Harrington Waistguard for normal rift only. Other buffs will come from your active and passive skills which are Confidence Ritual, Gruesome Feast, Midnight Feast, Sacrifice, Soul Harvest and Piranhas ofc.
Your gems will be the Enforcer, Bane of the Trapped which is self procced by Gargs also and Bane of the Powerful. Im my video my gems are about lvl 100, don't worry, the moment you collected all the ancient gear, i'm pretty sure you are already farming your gems to 100 or more with another set, every LoN build takes some time to gear up especially if you are on Season as said before! Another cool gem is the Boon of the Hoarder in case you want more and more speed.
The belt is the Krelm's one, that will be always up thanks to our perma spirit walk. The bracers are the Nemesis to spawn elites and proc our In-geom, and also because you are probably going to be the fastest in your group and you don't want to lose time waiting for them. On the shoulders slot we use Homing Pads to come back to town quickly, you can use something different when farming speed grift because nobody will ever interrupt your recall.The chest is the Aquila Cuirass which is very good at the beginning of the game when you ain't procced your perma severance yet. The mojo is the Homunculus so we can Sacrifice (Provoke the pack) our dogs and gain dps, but keep in mind to do not sacrifice them while standing or you will incur in Hexing pants malus! You have to stutter step, so 1 step 1 sacrifice and so on...
In the cube we obviously gonna put the gargs ring and a sacred harvester to increase our benefit from Soul harvest (armor or more movement speed). For the armor slot you have 2 possible choices, during normal rift i run Harrington Waistguard and in grift i use Lakumba's bracers.
Ok guys, that's it. I know this is build is not that easy to gear up as said before, don't forget that every single item have to be ancient, your rings included. So until you don't fit every requirements i suggest you to play with a normal HT Gargs with Manajuma!
I hope you enjoyed the guide and the video, cya next time
