While Firebird’s Finery received a massive upgrade in the current patch 2.7.0, I will be one of the first to admit that I did not care for this build in particular. Compared to the Tal Rasha + Firebird’s Finery build on PTR prior to the damage swap, this build feels a bit awkward to get used to and on paper does not seem to make that much sense. Yet it pretty much has been one of the show stealers, if not THE show stealer for Season 23 and will be still strong in Season 24, especially with the available of Ethereals.
Of all the existing builds right now, the Gears of Dreadlands Hungering Arrow Demon Hunter build might be my favorite of all time. In being super fast, tanky, high damaging and capable of multiple scenarios, it has a versatility that’s hard to beat. With the addition of Ethereals, a few things will change but mostly in damage output. I will first talk about the basic gear without Ethereals then follow up with a few alternatives for the build once Ethereals come into play.
One of the top monk builds going into Season 24 will be the Patterns of Justice build. Based on Tempest Rush as the primary damage output, the Patterns of Justice build is a channeling one with a play style similar to Whirlwind Barbarians and Strafe Demon Hunters. It can be built for speed and high GR pushing and will remain competitive along side the revised Inna’s Mystic Ally build.
