Not worth wearing, but maybe now I'll see the occasional one drop instead of hundreds of maces, and more than my fill of absolutely worthless leoric's ammys. (Stupidest affix in the world... who the heck is going to stop mid attack to let the massacre bonus proc 4 skeletons that'll last all of 2 seconds ?).

Currently running through T5 like butter with a pretty generic monk build (no real spenders) and survivable solo T6, but certainly doesn't feel efficient.

Not sure how long this is sustainable.... DD pants, Crudest Boots, Leoric's crown (double life%), thrown in with 3 leveled legendary gems pretty much make any build easily sustainable T5/T6 without BiS gear.

Currently hunting for a gift to socket a WKL in order to complete a lightning build... going to be interesting to see what kind of damage an extra 75% elemental damage will make. :)

Congrats. I found it hard to get those GIFTs when I wanted them. Now that I don't, I strangely have accumulated 4. Blizzard must read minds just to taunt us all.

Congrats. I got lucky and found an RoRG with native socket fairly recently so that was a stroke of good fortune. I am playing the monk a lot more than my Sentry planter. - Though she's useful to plvl gems to 25 fairly quickly.

The SOJ is kind of sucky until I find another pair of Unity Rings.

Went from not being able to clear GR 34 to beating it with 4 mins to spare and then blazing right through GR35 too!
The difference? Switched my mantra to MoC Annihilation. Made things a little hairy against all those damn RD + electrified packs I came across, but the extra dmg was very noticeable. Better density helped a lot too (beat GR35 on floor 1)
Will try GR36 tonight.

So coming back to this after a bit of a break, when did T6 become trivial?

I've changed my monk to the monkey king set and its silly how effective I am now, though I'm still setup for lightning, I can only imagine how effective it would be with a holy damage gear build.

Currently working on a seasonal crusader but will likely build a monk when I have a chance to level it quickly.

T6 became trivial on the release of this patch. GRs are where it's at now. :)

Yeah, T6 is pretty much at the point now where I equip Boon of the Hoarder, Goldskin and the +xp from gold bracers and speed run through bounties / T6 rifts now. XP adds up decently quick with all the gold that drops. Should probably get around to running A3 bounties and grabbing one of those Avarice Band rings for the pickup radius too.

I do the same. Finally got my Vault portal last weekend after lord knows how many goblins only giving me Whimsydale...Went from 30m to 250m after the vault, levelled up the gem and did some A1 Cache runs to try to get a better RRoG (which I did!) and I'm up over 750m now. Gold is as trivial as T6 is now

I'm not sure how much it improved since I had about 1.4Billion at the time I started buffing my DH. I do have around 3Billion now it seems.

Just did my first gold run and yeah, it's absolutely silly... Might even be a viable mid level T6 build with the right gear.

T5 for me but it was still 35 mil in about 15 minutes.... :)

And that's without even really trying, and a fairly low horder gem. :)
