Every four weeks, after reviewing your Play Your Way builds, we open the polls to let the community vote on which feature you favored most. As the final round for 2014 draws to a close, weâ€™ve put together a summary of the last four builds featured as a refresher before you cast your vote for our next live stream!
What Are We Voting On?
If you've never joined us before for our previous Play Your Way features or livestreams, youâ€™re in for a good time!
Every six weeks or so, we invite the creator of one of the player-submitted builds 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!
You may have missed the last few features, so be sure to check out our super-swift synopses below before you finalize your vote!
Week 1 - Abachio's "Lightning Rage Nocturne" Demon Hunter
Abachio#2399 returned to the Demon Hunter's roots, armed with a rare and valuable Kridershot and steering away from the ever-popular Marauderâ€™s Sentry build. Using Strafe as a utility effect and relying on Elemental Arrow for its substantial damage, the Lightning Rage Nocturne unleashes a shocking amount of vengeance upon his foes while making use of the more underused Demon Hunter sets.Â
With frequent use of Vengeance and Rain of Vengeance, this Demon Hunter clearly only has one thing on her mind: fluffy bunnies.
Week 2 â€“ Thibbledorf's "Venomous Horde" Witch Doctor
Clearly intent on creeping me the heck out, Thibbledorf#1559 put together a build that rained poison, zombies, and (most horrifyingly) spiders. Intent on utilizing the underrepresented Helltooth Harness set, this build flourishes with a Grin Reaper, flooding the world of Sanctuary with a terrifying and poisonous horde of minions.
Nightmares. Nightmares everywhere.
Week 3 â€“ Capicorp's "Icepick Assassin" Monk
Drawing inspiration from one of his favorite works of fiction, Capicorp#1432 embodied his inner assassin with his Monk build. Exploding Palm has often been the centerpiece of popular builds, but the Icepick Assassin changes it up with a dash of cold damage wrapped in the flavor of a Japanese alternate history novel.Â Â
The only trace of enemies youâ€™ll leave behind is their shattered remains.
Week 4 â€“ VegaPrime's "Axe-nado" Barbarian
Whirlwind is a long-time Barbarian favorite, and in VegaPrime#1203â€™s build, it cranks the badass level up to 11 with axes, axes, and (you guessed it) more axes. A Physical element build, the Axe-nado uses a combination of WhirlwindÂ and Overpower to deliver copious amounts of bladed weaponry to the face.
â™« Stalgardâ€™s was meant to fly, axes up and hit War Cry, canâ€™t stop though Jailer tries, letâ€™s do this one more time! â™«
