UPDATE1: Added Mercy Run, No green version, and fix some typos
with all permanent buff + Word of Renewal, Pneumatic Burst, Lethal Assault, Deadly Aim, and standing on Inquisitor Seal.
DPS shown is Shadow Strike.
Update1, No green version:
Untested, but it should be better defensively while sacrificing a bit of offense for using no green.
- Ultimate Crucible Clear Speed
- Contain Inquisitor
- Doesn’t contain Demolitionist
- Fluid gameplay
- Need crafted green boots to cover resistance
Now we explore the power of the new redesigned The Sacred Harmony Set. The answer is: Insane! The set has really good procs from each of its sword and completion bonus. The later is really insane because it allow us to skip elemental storm devo and provide better damage than cataclysm set. The build is then designed to focus on shadow strike supported by 80% Nightblade’s WPS and 200% Attack Speed. Its new Acid > Fire and Cold conversion is really nice and allow us to use guardian’s gaze effectively for supplemental damage and life leech sustain. Other supplemental damage is done by plethora of devotion procs and elemental harmony procs, ensuring good AoE.
PS: Current max damage by Shadow strike is 670k in Crucible (4 Buff no Banner). In Campaign should be 450k-ish.
Defense is good : Decent DA, Decent phys res, dodge, 2.5k armor, fumble, insane lifesteal, 17/12 inquisitor seal, 17% reduced damage from aura of censure, heal from Ortus proc, and ghoul proc.
Craft all equipment at Arngrim and try to get +% armor as completion bonus.

For 170 Crucible, video with 4 buff without banner:
7:20 clear time!!! RoH level clear times with no clunky spell and no danger whatsoever. Nex and Ortus is insane. I think I just found my new favorite build.
Take note that this can potentially be faster as there are still some enemy stuck in their spawn point in that video.
There is no dangerous enemy. This build just kill them all with no care to the world.
Mercymaker run with 3 buff + vanguard banner (6 minutes clear time):
Build used in his video contain no inquisitor seal:
The build consistently clear cruci 6 minutes to 6:10 minutes. This is one of the most consistent build for fast clearing cruci in this patch
My 2nd build of 2019 and my current favorite build (beside vileblade). Enjoy!
