Diablo 3: How to Gear Up Quickly in Patch 2.3/Season 4

Unfortunately, the 2000% legendary buff won’t exist once the new patch 2.3 and season 4 hits. The normal way of gearing up in the past was just farming Blood Shards, using Kadala for set pieces and even leeching in T6 runs. However, with Kanai’s Cube in Patch 2.3, we have more ways to get the gear we need to start doing harder content. This blog will discuss using Kanai’s Cube’s transmutation properties for crafting your own legendaries.

Diablo 3: And Yet More PTR Testing With Monk, Marauders Demon Hunter and Kanai’s Cube

Once again, I managed to get into the PTR for some testing. I did revisit the Marauders Demon Hunter build once again as well as put more emphasis on a Sunwuko-Innes combo monk.

Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls: Are Demon Hunters Overpowered At the Moment?

The Marauders 6 set bonus make Demon Hunters one of the top classes in the game at the moment for handling end game content. With a decent 2-handed crossbow, the Bombadier’s Rucksack and Custom Engineering, even a poorly itemized Demon Hunter can solo and carry T4-5 rifts. Drop 5 sentries down and let them take care of the work while you avoid all the blows. Sound simple? It’s more than that.
