Vote For Your Favorite Build!Category: Diablo BlogJune-4-2015 2:00 PM PDT (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard blog

Every four weeks, we open the polls and invite the community to vote for their favorite Play Your Way player-submitted build. It’s that time again, and we’ve got a summary of the last four builds to refresh your memory before you cast your vote on who you’d like to see join us during our next live stream!


What Are We Voting On?

If you've never joined us for a Play Your Way feature or livestream, you’re in for a good time!

Every six weeks or so, we invite a build creator to join myself, one of our developers, and a prominent member of our community to hop online, play the game with us, and talk about their build in a casual setting. How do we select this lucky individual? By opening up the polls and letting you cast your vote, of course!

Vote Now!

If you missed the past few features, don’t fret; we’ve prepared a short refresher course for the eligible nominations below. For your convenience, you can also check out the full features here:


Week 1 - Schlangenbob’s “Fiery Rain” Demon Hunter

Death from above! Natalya’s Vengeance was heavily revamped in Patch 2.2.0, and EU player Schlangenbob#2315 took full advantage of it in his “Fiery Rain” build. Utilizing Strafe as his primary method of reducing the cooldown on Rain of Vengeance, he focused on keeping a steady stream of Hatred available for smooth and continuous gameplay up through Greater Rift 41.


A dose of grenades and rockets to the face before steadily moving forward!


Week 2 – SirBoneselot’s “You Can’t Run” Witch Doctor

Adding a twist on a popular build, SirBoneselot#1182 took a more active role with his Hardcore Witch Doctor and his “You Can’t Run” build. Substituting in Spirit Barrage over the more traditional Plague of Toads skill, he dishes out a much larger percentage of his total damage directly while utilizing the otherwise pet-oriented Zunimassa’s Haunt set. Let no one escape!


Especially treasure-laden goblins.


Week 3 – DemonCoyote’s “Speed-of-Lightning Ninja” Monk

In week 3, DemonCoyote#1661 got everybody kung fu fighting with his “Speed of Lightning Ninja” build. Built on the foundation of Raiment of a Thousand Storms and its generator-boosting set bonus, he mixed a few Legendaries and sets together to up the ante on his primary skills and get back to what Monks do best: applying their fists directly to demonic faces. 


Cleaning up his hand-to-hand work with shocking results.


Week 4 – HappyFeet’s “Stone Age” Barbarian

To round out our latest set of builds, EU player HappyFeet#21646 rolled back the clock to prehistoric times with his “Stone Age” Barbarian. Dropping massive boulders from Ancient Spear (Boulder Toss), this build represented our least gear-dependent option, capitalizing on just about anything that provides direct bonus damage to his skills. While a more thematic than efficient build, it’s a rocking good time you shouldn’t take for granite. 


Did I hit bedrock bottom with that one?
