Diablo 3: Season 24 Crusader Aegis of Valor Fist of the Heavens/Heaven’s Fury Build for Patch 2.7.1

This is one of the last guides I’m going to do before Season 24. I probably won’t make one for the Necromancer just because I don’t have a lot of interest in one. But I have played around with the Aegis of Valor set and figured it would be good to do a write up. It is a build that will be getting nerfed in the coming patch 2.7.1 but with Ethereals, there will be a variation to make it work, which is the build I’m presenting here.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Monk Inna’s Mantra Fire Mystic Ally Build for Patch 2.7.1

I decided to revise my original post about the Inna’s Mantra build based on my own testing on PTR. Originally, I made a statement that Ethereals would not make a difference but I have changed my mind based on what I’ve seen on PTR. On top of that there had been a post-PTR update to a few things so I wanted to include those here. Also, I’ve seen a slightly more powerful variant that will end up becoming the end game build for Inna’s for Season 24 and will make up for some deficiencies that I identified. With that in mind, I’m posting a much better formatted version that lines up with more consistency in terms of what I’ve been doing lately.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Wizard Firebird’s Finery Disintegrate/Mirror Images Build for Patch 2.7.1

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.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Demon Hunter Gears of Dreadlands Hungering Arrow Build for Patch 2.7.1

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.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Monk Patterns of Justice Build for Patch 2.7.1

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.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Witch Doctor Spirit of Arachyr Firebat Build for Patch 2.7.1

With the Spirit of Arachyr being the officially announced Witch Doctor set for Season 24, I figured it would be a good time to write up an updated build guide for this set.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Whirlwind Barbarian Guide for Patch 2.7.1

Barbarians will see a slight alteration with the introduction of Ethereals during Season 24. Most Barbarians use a combination of the Wrath of the Wastes set and either Bul-Kathos’s Oath (for lower level farming) or Istvan’s Paired Blades for higher level Greater Rift pushing. The introduction of Ethereals will alter the meta slightly and this guide will provide 1-2 setups for those who manage to pick up some Ethereals.

Diablo 3: Season 24 Patch 2.7.1 Haedrig Gift Set Thoughts

So this might seem like a little bit of clickbait considering that Blizzard has yet to release Season 24’s Haedrig Gift sets. However, based on a chart of past seasons, I believe we can almost accurately predict which sets will be part of Haedrig’s Gift. So from that, I want to review which classes look like good starters based on that chart as well as what we know about patch 2.7.1.
