Chantadoo will be nerfed... and looses 4 to 5 grift level. So what is the next cool thing to go for? Still vyr wiz? How strong will be the whirlwind barb? I still like the lon nec for grifts, but you need a lot of paragon and it runs 107 very fast and with a lot of xp, but not 114+ like the vyr wiz at the moment. And is season better than nonseason because of the bufs? my 8000+ char is a beast and i dont think i can get in season xp like in nonseason... but what do you think?

I was a bit excited about the new sader set, the animation reminded me of the old light sorc from d2. But after playing with it for a few days on ptr i was disappointed. Unless they buff it until the new season is out, i doubt it will be any use. Other than that, i will definetly start the ms dh, since you also get the ue and use it to fast gear/para until i see what other builds seem viable.

necro is at par/slighty better then with wiz NOW. Next patch theres no doubt that necro is the better choice ( aswell with the seasonal buff... )
Still waiting for the patch notes of the new season. But if barb doesnt get touched it could be #1 probably.
Monk & crus could also be overtuned by blizz... becouse thats how they roll :)

Crus incredibly strong right now.  Vyrs nerf was pretty hard imo.  I did a few 125+ runs and it felt much worse.

I would put crus as flavor of the month for s19.  Expect crus leaderboards to be stacked similar to wiz last couple season.

yeah, the question is how good the new builds will fit in a ros-bot-script (I have not seen any attempts to do so, but surely we can start the season with a lon-build)

It's fairly simple imo.  The build is probably on the same difficulty level as condemn.

I'm definitely planning on using it in HC cause I want the new set items.

The crusader is your choice. I made 120 on first try with non ancient gear and paragon 3300. I am looking forward to use bot with him

there is no script available for the new crusader build atm, so it is impossible to say.
the new set has of course the power to be the best build for botting, since patch there are several players that made solo runs of greater rift level 146 with not optimized gear ...

Yea 150 has been cleared.  It is the strongest build in the game by like 5 grs.

Previous 145-146 clears with double element vyr and bazooka.

Sadly the new sader set armor is going to get nerfed... Possibly the Shield of Fury will also get a nerf, maybe a cap on the stacks. I just hope the nerfs are not severe enough to kill the set completly.

Still looking for the answer on this topic. Shall everyone contribute to this:

1) DH: Script is stable for both UE multishot and Imaple. Easy to get gear and stable on farming GR95 under 5 mins
2) Wizard: Script is stable for Chantodo Vyr. Super easy to get gear and stable on farming GR105 under 5 mins with 2k paragons.

For discussions:
1) Monk: new POJ tempest rush, very potential
2) Crusader: new AoV AH and FoH, very potential but a slow build.
3) Necro: LOD Mage, not very easy to get gear but stable on farming GR105 under 3 mins with high paragon. Question: Necro has non viable build for next season. You can gear up and get high paragon, but what? Thron Solo? You are must kidding me. 
4) Barb: New wastes set is powerful and potentially can far GR100 under 3-4 mins. However, no experience with bot.

the best build is the build you like the most (and the goal you will reach)
and for the rest:
1.) new monk set is not very potential ... wol is still more powerful
2.) solo pushing very powerful, but no good script available atm
3.) like last season: solo pushing with lon thorns, speed builds with lon mages, scripts are solid
4.) powerful (but in gr not as high as crusader but faster), working scripts available

In my opinion with the actual scripts available:
fastest rifts with monk (wol), dh (MS) or necro (lon mage)
fast rifts low paragon with barb (ww), dh (ms)
fast rifts high paragon with necro (lon mage), perhaps monk (wol)
high gr with dh (impale), wiz (vyr chantodo)
bounties and uber keys with monk (wol), dh (ms), necro (lon mage) or barb (ww)
uber with monk (wol), barb (ww), dh (ms or impale)
good working script list:

its really sad. at the moment vyr and necro are for me the best to bot with. and they are still the best for season because you need a lot of equip very fast. the crusader needs a lot of paragon to stay alive in the higher grifts he is made for and it is very slow. Vyr is the most flexible build to respond to your level. The nerf is really bad even for the nonbotters because now you're even more dependent on the wizard in the metagroup. The game needs an easy to play and fun build for the random groups to reach about 130. The difference between a good meta group which do speed runs at 150 and a random group which can do 110 speeds is too high.

I guess the next patch is a bounty patch for nonseason players. it makes no sense to go extremely for xp if you are 9000+.

This crusader script from guigs runs pretty smooth

thank you @Patsch74 but 2 bosses are hard to kill... i guess at the moment it is more like a gem up char. and lets see what the nerf will bring.
