    Hey guys, I am seeing about 3-4 minutes gain running the same rift with CoE + Haunted.
    https://www.d3planner.com/527630522
    Such setup needs more CDR, about 30-40% baseline, then Decrepify with Borrowed Time rune and Blood is Power passive. The passive is unfortunately bugged and gives less CDR than it should. Nonetheless, you gain 50-60% Simulacrum uptime and start to use it on trash as well. Definitely faster killing. Removal of Jesseth set is optional, I use it mainly to kick Command Skeletons out of the active bar because it seems to bug out somethings giving either invalidtarget or flag80 on targets that live and are within 5f distance.

    "While your skeletons are commanded to attack a target, all of your minions deal 400% increased damage." that includes your mages. Go to ur d3 planner, swap ur weapon/off hand for Jesseth set, activate the skeletons. Look at the spike you get in mage damage, it's about 5x. That's the only reason you use the set.

    Problem with that is you have to drop decrepify for blood rush. You also take a damage hit for using the shield. You also lose Fraility | Decrepify | Leech if you aren't using Tragouls. I am running 95s at 8minutes with Tragoul set up.

    This is what I use in seasonal: https://www.d3planner.com/397287436

    Yup, you are completely right. But Scythe of the Cycle is giving you 4x multiplier right away + base line damage on the Phylactery you cannot have on the Jesseth shield + 15% Skeletal Mage damage you cannot have on the shield either. Been using Jesseth set for ages, I am happy there is a stronger option that does not need to use buggy Command Skeletons ability.

    PS: It is true that shield makes you somewhat tankier than phylactery but it is roughly offset by replacing the Command Skeletons ability by the Bone Armor.

    It is the blood rush I do not like missing. DB has a hard time walking around mobs and gets stuck on them with out Blood Rush or Illusory Boots.

    Thanks a bunch! Have u tried to increase AD on ur gear? I found it increases clear time a decent bit.

    I can't wait for the new patch. Finally get to use WOH wizard for t13 again. I'm mot a fan of these fragile builds that require crazy Cdr. They make it super hard to gear for and rng dependant.

    you need four different accounts, m8! :) with the auto follow plugin, you can run Phelons routines for each character and they work as a group... Hope this answers your question :)

    I just came back to the game, looking for a setup for next season. I was hoping this was a rat run setup. While rat runs might not be a thing in season 16, is there a profile or series of profiles i could use to run rats or will i have to play with randoms again :/ ?
