Season 20 has a buff where you can put any cubed power in any of the 3 cube slots regardless of the type. 3 weapon powers, 2 weapon 1 ring, 3 ammys, 3 bracers, etc.

I want to know your opinions on which character and build will benefit most from this theme, and why?

Optional RGK: LoD Poison Lancer (S20 GR145+) https://ptr.d3planner.com/952319274

Notes:
1. The Hammers in the first Crusader D3Planner are purely for stricken stacking; additionally you need to stay safe in the 6 second AC downtime, especially during the boss fight (also you are a victim in the rift). The second set is more stable on that end.
2. The Necro setup is not playing Pain Enhancer due to its limited effectiveness. Zeis is usable up to its tier 3 effect (first tier is granted at 0 yards - the gem tooltip is straight up incorrect).
3. Poison Andariels likely can be played with a non-PE Nova setup (allthough it's not been tested yet, hence not recommended). Keep that setup in mind.
4. Crus RGK is recommended, however, if you want to you swap it out for a LoD Poison Lancer, which is weaker over all.

| 4-Man S20 WD PUSH META Patch 2.6.8 |
+------------------------------------+

SB WD MR-6 (GR150 high Paragon) https://ptr.d3planner.com/880868324
Crus AoV-6 EW(S20) https://ptr.d3planner.com/878147321
zMonk I4 (S20 WD GR150) https://ptr.d3planner.com/181849327
zBarb R4 (S20 WD GR150) https://ptr.d3planner.com/481658554

If you don't want Crus, you can play the following RGK and zBarb setup:
LoD Posion Lancer (S20 WD GR145+): https://ptr.d3planner.com/956618884
zBarb R4 (S20 WD+PSN Lance GR145+): https://ptr.d3planner.com/794719623

Notes
1. Spirit Barrage:Phantasm is equipped twice due to two reasons: Firstly, any other rune adds additional Barber explosions (with high APS), which increases the lag significantly. Secondly, you want to deterministically spawn Oculi at your own will 2 second into CoE-Poison - the side explosions might "screw with it".
2. The Hammers in the first Crusader D3Planner are purely for stricken stacking; additionally you need to stay safe in the 6 second AC downtime, especially during the boss fight (also you are a victim in the rift). The second set is more stable on that end.
3. Endseason timeattacking likely requires U2 due to the faster setup time between pulls; the setup is not possible to play on low paragon (<3k) and has VERY HIGH gear requirements (RCR).
4. Crusader can equip Consecration:Bed of Nails to proc the WD's Pain Enhancer, meaning the zMonk does not have to play U2. In this case the Crusader must have atleast ONE Thorns roll on gear (not socketed in weapon :weSmart: ). Credits: d3nectester
5. In the alternative setup with Poison Lancer the Necro is creating globes with Corpse Lance. Save LotD for huge pulls, communicate with WD when to pop the corpses on the ground to give him Gruesome Feast. On RG the Necro reaches the 3 FPA BB with Speed Pylon + Voodoo (which is previously not reachable).

zMonk I4 (WDXP GR115+) https://www.d3planner.com/573236036

Notes:
1. Monk procs Iceblink with Dash (it's okay uptime).
2. Is this better than Rat Runs? Can't really tell for sure either way: time will tell. This is a viable alternative if you don't want to play Rats (it's slower on average but higher tiers). Rough estimates: 3m30s average run time at 3-4 tiers higher than Rats. It's the best of all alternatives.
3. You can swap out the WD for WW-Barb (remove globes on zBarb), which is a similar setup just worse.
4. Charge on Barbarian (the casting animation) scales with attack speed. The "travel time" in charge scales with movement speed. You want both.
5. Charge & Rage Flip on Barb procs Strongarms - it pierces Juggernaut immunity as well as Boss immunity. For Charge it's only if R4 is NOT equipped.

zBarb HotsNSC2 (S20 Rat GR115+) https://ptr.d3planner.com/695012068

For season start leveling you can let one DPS do this up to GR89:
R6 Rat (S20 GR1-89): https://ptr.d3planner.com/164491883

Notes:
1. Fear zNec is not recommended, but a viable setup if you want to play it (there is no planner for it here).
2. Charge on Barbarian (the casting animation) scales with attack speed. The "travel time" in charge scales with movement speed. You want both.
3. Charge on Barb procs Strongarms - it pierces Juggernaut immunity as well as Boss immunity. For Charge it's only if R4 is NOT equipped.
4. It's equivalent to play Nova:Blood Nova on zNec, however, Blight (with damage reduction) suffices in terms of CDR since Messerschmidt's was added into the game.
5. For LoD Rat the CoE setup it's fairly demanding to have 10 mages up all the time. If you don't manage, play the Julian's setup.
6. Yes, the zNec is not running a Royal Ring of Grandeur. If you feel squishy, play the low para setup untill you can survive it. Else, there is no upside of 3-PC Crimson!
7. The R6 DPS swaps according to this sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11n247g2GHlOXSWGAGoKNc0bO3uZJbS6pRCRBR_ltFuU/edit?usp=sharing

Notes:
1. For SWK6 and Vyr (all setups) you swap Cain's Boots + Helm in for the Boss kill.
2. The high-end setups on DH should not incorporate Rechel's - once you oneshot you won't get a "Fear chance".
