Actually I use this set and a slightly modified build (sprint marathon instead of eq, ToC instead of insanity) to carry 2-3 viewers on MP10 ubers. around 4M sustained eDPS is still higher than any other class that I can think of. So far for the record attempts DH cluster bomb is an absolute useless build, Monk Cyclone snapshot is around 34s, CM wiz is around 40s. and WD is no where to be seen. even without insanity this build would would still win against all classes regardless of their practicality. I will record a solo uber run on all three bosses and report back with the time. I am not too familiar with the records for those, either detox or audi has those. In terms of real life application besides Ubers Hota is pretty silly. Rend is so much better for mp0-1 farming WW is so much better for key runs because of mobility. HoTA is strictly reserved for ubers. We will be trying for a group mp10 uber kill of under 4minutes for all 3 bosses. I will be using hota.
intense theorycrafting? erm..stack +dmg against elites / demons and burst-cd's..WIN
Well it's more complicated than that. Bash punish vs frenzy maniac, witching hour blood thirst vs ik beserker, follower choice and their skills. Perfect skill rotation and theoretical outcomes were determined beforehand. Most of the work was done on paper. Of course my gear did help, with the exception of the soj and EF and inna I had all the gear without considering the record. It was a happy coincidence that I had a perfect tyarels and unity for the job.
haha thanks for the detailed reply and the good lesson. I retracted my ignorant statement! We are working on the group uber, we actually have a different party set up and have a bit of a different result. Haha it's close, but not there yet!
guy's not korean, he's Chines/Taiwanese, the progress you linked is not the same person, I already answered back with my sub 10s kill on this thread http://bbs.d.163.com/thread-172418915-1-1.html , I am Chinese too and the two of us have been going back and forth on the record for the past 24 hours, currently it's a photo finish situation where conventional timing is insufficient, i think Wrath Cooldown icon is now the best judge
Hey guys, I'm Chazhang (or Chaz as everyone in CDX's stream calls me; not the same Chaz that plays with Kripp). I mainly help with theorycrafting on the stream and ran all the calculations to figure out CDX's optimal skills and skill rotations to go for the record.
I've been theorycrafting a bit over the weekend to figure out true DPS estimates of the various classes (including using your Azmodan kill as an estimate) to figure out an optimal combination to get some pretty ridiculous DPS outputs to compete with your already impressive record. Already in the process of writing out a thorough primer for skills, skill rotations and positioning for the people involved. I personally don't really want to get into the whole WR running due to time limitations (CD's previous post shows the potential time sink) but I think I may have to play a larger role for this next challenge.
Unfortunately, I really think SK Magda will end up being a horrible comparison tool due to the unreliability of Magda's shielding mechanic that will differentiate us in the end. Sometimes it takes up to 10 sec for her to shield when left undisturbed which is really troubling given the estimated times I'm looking at. Hopefully both our teams will get lucky with her shields in the near future!
