Vote for the Best Theorycraft Thursdays Build

Choose the class build to be featured on the next Diablo livestream

Diablo III Theorycraft Thursdays
The first round of the Diablo III Theorycraft Thursdays by community manager Nevalistis was a big success. It culminated in a stream, including a fascinating discussion with developer Travis Day. Theorycraft Thursdays round two is now up for a vote, to choose the build you like the best of the four featured builds. The build that wins will be part of the next livestream, that will also include a Diablo III developer. The voting is only until 8AM Pacific on Saturday, so choose soon!

Read on for all the details, and vote for the most interesting build in this second round!

Another four weeks have passed with four very different Theorycraft Thursday builds, so by now you should know what that means—it's time to choose your favorite build to be featured on stream! 

Voting - How Does It Work?

If you missed out on our "Round 1" Theorycraft Thursday community vote and livestream, you may be wondering just what kind of shenanigans are going on around here.

Here are the quick and dirty details:

  • Each round of Theorycraft Thursday lasts approximately six weeks. 
  • For the first four weeks, we'll highlight four different player-submitted builds (one build per week).
  • On the fifth week, we'll offer you the chance to vote for the build you liked the most.
  • On the sixth week, we'll host a livestream over on featuring the winning build. 

The player who submits the winning build will also be invited to participate in the livestream, alongside myself, members of the Diablo III development team, and community infuencers. During the stream, we'll talk about the build itself, how it's improved based on feedback, alternative ways to customize, and whatever else strikes our fancy.

Vote Now!

If you've missed out on any of Round 2's featured builds, don't worry! Below is a quick overview of the different classes we featured to catch you up to speed! 

Week 1 - Outlaw's "MRL" Demon Hunter

Mobility and an impossibly infinite supply of rockets were the focus of Outlaw#1468's "Multiple Rocket Launcher" build. Focusing on heavy use of the Strafe (Rocket Storm) ability and offering quite a bit of item variety, be especially sure to give this early Torment build a try if you're interested in mastering resource management skills and kiting techniques.

Caution: Excessive spinning motion may cause disorientation, explosions, death, and awesome. Please consult your physician before utilizing MRL.

Week 2 – OftRepeated's "At My Signal" Witch Doctor

Shortened from "At My Signal, Unleash Hell," OftRepeated#1136 showed us the terrifying results of equipping an army of Fetish minions with a limitless supply of heavy artillery. The name of the game here is MOAR POISON DARTS, and if your goal is to cover your screen in a blanket of death and destruction, this mid-to-high Torment build will certainly do the trick!

Fun fact - I felt a little like Hodor writing this one. MOAR POISON DARTS? MOAR POISON DARTS!

Week 3 – Vaeus's "Demon Queller" Monk

In any typical fantasy setting, the fireball is widely considered one of the most deadly and iconic representations of death and destruction. Vaeus#1389 asked the question of why bother casting a fireball if you can be the fireball?  A massively AoE oriented build designed to light your inner (and outer) fire, give it a try in early-to-mid Torment levels!

A strong elemental theme, a little story background, and a whole lotta boom make up this fiery build.

Week 4 – Suckerfred1's "Lead Foot Lacerator" Barbarian

Last but certainly not least, Suckerfred1#1771 wanted us to embrace our inner savagery with the Lead Foot Lacerator build. A Physical damage build, this is all about tearing through your enemies with Rend and the Whirlwind proc of the Bul Kathos’ Oath weapon set, leaving each pack behind as their life force drips away. If you’re looking to try your hand at harnessing your Fury, give this build a try in any Torment difficulty. 

Watching all those health bars steadily drain is super satisfying. Wilt before my blows!
