Ty, I will check that YouTuber out. Update, we pushed 119 with 2 mins left tonight, gonna shoot for 120 tomorrow. Ended the night top 500 on the leaderboards. Thanks for the help all. Knowing about positioning ground stomp was huge. As was the advice about scouting, It’s super helpful to my crusader buddy to have someone calling out elites and pylons and things. Now I think the next thing is I have to start learning where pylons spawn and at what progression so I can start manipulating pylon spawns.

Ty for the help. We are slowly progressing. This seems to be in line with what we are figuring out. Mostly I’m scouting and looking for elites, I’m running blind/glory so I think he gets that as long as we are on the same stage, but I usually scout out an elite, make the biggest stack I can, when he gets there I pop my threatening shout falter and warcry veterans warning and then take off, I come back if he needs ignore pain mob rule. I’m actually finding the ancient spear harpoon rune to be easier to use, is this a mistake to use this?

So I’m playing a wastes ww zbarb in a duo. We are a zbarb and a crusader, we tried to copy the builds on the top ten spots on the duo leaderboards. We are at the point where we have all the right gear and pretty much all the right stats, we just don’t have ancients for most pieces yet. We have completed 111 without too much trouble, but we are starting to get to the point where we are needing to start applying high rift tactics to progress any farther, and I’m not sure where to find that info. Most of the info I can find is really basic like what a rift is and how to open them and sometimes they go into things like map selection and mob modifiers and saving a pylon for the rift boss. There is very little info on the mechanics of how to play the different roles in the group and how they should work together. How long should I spend stacking mobs? What should the crusader be doing while I stack them all up? What do I do while he kills them? Do I just stack them up and start moving on and stacking more while he kills them? Or do I stay and buff and keep them stacked and ccd?
Also, at this point I am struggling to get the hang of stacking mobs for higher density. Mechanically I am finding the ancient spear rage flip inconsistent at best as to how it will pull mobs, sometimes it will pull them towards me, sometimes it will not. Ground stomp also will sometimes pull them all in and sometimes not. I honestly had more luck stacking mobs with an Ess of Johan than any ability. The ground stomp sometimes just seems to knock them up, but the Ess of johan always seemed to bring them all in really tight.
Are there any other tips or good sources of info that someone just breaking in to supporting high rifts can learn?
