Long story short, I just wanted to build around Harbinger set after seeing the buffs. The obvious choice would be deceiver because who doesn’t want seal and good RR? I didn’t want inq cause the only choice for a good secondary skill (after Doom Bolt) would be Beronath’s Fury and that concept has been done to death a lot of times already, so we go for Pyro.
I expected a glassy doom bolter that spits bullets of brimstone every now and then but it resulted into something tanky that rivals inquisitors when it comes to tankiness. Here’s the build:
Char sheet with permanent buffs and BoD
So what does this build offer? Well, here’s a 7:30 clear by Mercymaker (4buffs 1 banner)

Pros & Cons:
+Good Chaos build that isn’t Darkblaze
+No Inquisitor ranged build
+Doom Bolts for life
+Tanky Demolitionist (this is rare if you’re not counting purifier and mando)
+Pretty relaxed gameplay
-Not as fast as the recent DW gods
-Requires 4 buffs cause mana PITA (though with 4 buffs you won’t use potion often due to abundant energy absorb)
-Your strongest nuke is also your strongest RR
-Requires at least 1 green
Wait there’s no non-green alternative? REEEEEEEEE
-Yeah, you can probably just use full legendaries but defense will take a hit. You can build with only 1 green like this but you either go Thunderstruck boots of Kings to retain Kings proc without losing dps due to needing more pierce res. The setup on the picture is imo more flexible gearing even with two greens cause affixes can be adjusted.
So you might have expected me here to say mines>DB>pew pew pew but to get more optimal results it’s not as simple as that. Well it’s still like that but you might want to sometimes save your DB for bosses who haven’t reached the arena yet cause 1 missed Doom Bolt = 5 seconds without RR and your strongest skill. That’s it, just a small tip.
Thanks a lot to Mercymaker for testing the build for me and uploading a video. If I don’t get lazy I’ll be able to get a monitor next week to complete my new rig so I’ll probably be able to produce better videos myself. Thanks for reading!
