Whats the "savest" build to bot in hc in your opinion?

There will be performing a major maintenance operation on friday night (Europe time).
It is planned so that bots keep running, but clearly the site will be taken down for a few hours.


This means no script edition, no coins purchase, no forum, no license renew etc... for a few hours.

I botted very save 70 GRs in no time with my Condemn Crusader with 1,5 mio Life and 100 mio thoughness unbuffed. But he died, prob. due bug or something i think.

Whats your opinion on the savest build? A Monk with Thoughness and Lifereg? Like a supportmonk Healing Build? He could survive a 10 minutes Timeout.

I play HC only and characters that have lived the longest are crusaders and witch doctors.

Both are consistently over 100+ hours played time before eventual dc death.

DH with Ice Cluster Arrow Marauder, I botted this season over 1500 hours, alone whitout any dead and I have near 2500 of paragon. Now doing GR75 in 5-7min.

+200k of life per second.

 I think is the most important thing. When connection fall, only the life per second and pets/sentrys can save us. 

Is the best build I tried for HC.

I havent botted a lot of HC but from my experience number one death is when you have killed the RG and he goes to speak to Urshi. If some summons appear they will not be treated as a threat and you just stand still. Think of the Infernal Zombies in Halls of Agony map that just keep respawning. 

Same can also happen when the bot missclicks a floor and just stands there at the entrance.

Can you link your build Alter? I use Gizzard too for other builds but they can’t survive DC.

Im am HC only and would answer: depends on a good working script and a stable HC-Bot-Build. My preference ist Barbarian with this well working script: https://www.ros-bot.com/custom-script/starter-kit-5w-3ik-royal-grandeur-...

I am an HC only player aswell, made two scripts which serves me really well.


WW Barb - Needs good gear tho


I'm currently testing out a Hota one, atm doing gr 60s. Want to see if I can push in the 80's before release =)

The standard impale script is really good for HC.  I am doing 99’s in season.  It does die after a while but good enough to get all your gems to 100 without investment.

I’m close to 3k para though so lower para players may have to augment to survive high 90s reliably.

This script https://www.ros-bot.com/custom-script/dh-lightning-impale-sd86-my-edit-7...

It's an absolute monster.  No need to change anything.  There have been 2 scripts ever (this and the popular condemn script) that I didn't have to adjust something to run on HC.

I wanna tell you about DH class (since i played only DH this season)

Multishot: very hard to make stay alive. You need stack DMG reduction alot. Use follower Enchantress with Maximus. Having near perfect gear. This all is pretty much must have to bot survive over 500 games. I have tried multishot 3 times. Currently having 350 game without die (all defensive gems mutilation, gizzard, esoteric) takes dmg alot away.

Impale: Hard to stack dmg reduction and keep with dmg. You dc/bot stucks you die 100% even with 2.5k paragon.

N6M4: my personal favorite very tanky build itself does not need all DMG reductions. normal N6M4 build (icy veins) except in cube the Cloak of gardulff, elusive ring also swapped wraps of clarity to nemesis. runes: esoteric, mutilation guard and wildbeest gizzard. I dont have evasive fire i have instead preparation. 0 deaths I have DCd 3 times. Pretty much DH immortal build. I use numbing traps (for dmg reduction from turret hits instead of brooding) blood vengeance (for resources) custom engineering for more turrets and awarness. (maybe awarness is useless since if u proc u be anyway dead) I think this is best build for botting cause of amount of pets and turrets.

Remember when thinking builds this; situtations where you most likely gonna die your character gonna be either standing still OR trying running (stuck, avoidance profile is fucked up and your character just runs point a to b and get all dmg while doing it. etc..) 

EDIT: Also having teleport potion is nice if you get stuck and u start losing hp; you teleport away=you unstuck and u start killing :)

Hi all,

my best build for botting HC-Season is Innas WOL Monk. The 10 Mystic Allies covers the bot very good. Characters survived over 300 hours. One time the bot was "misconfigured" and did the highes GR at 105... Ok, at this level he died instantly at the Rift Guardian... ;)
For speed GRs I let him do 77-79 in 1R/2GR mode with ancient gear and 70-80 augments. After some weeks I have a lot of backup gear so the bot can run 81-85.
1. use teleport potion
2. use Ingeom for max. CDR
3. use Unity with follower

So everyone here has flawed suggestions. The best (only) viable options for HC bot is a class that can literally stand still in a huge pack and survive while you are afk. I've been botting for 7 seasons and have died only 2 times - usually when I finally push higher GR lvl. The only class that can survive any/all AFK in full pack is bomb LON sader (LOD gem working this season). I have also had success with garg WD builds, both helltooth and LON as they can survive while afk once gargs are out. There is a chance you can die before gargs are out and if your stacks wear off but GR 70 is easily possible. LON bomb sader can safely do GR70 all season and never die - public bounties at T10 safely with no issues. If you push pub bounties higher with any class Malth will eventually kill you.

The longest I went in a season with no death is WD.  Had 800+ hours played in season and still alive in NS that I keep around as a mule.

Was running 85's and couldn't die no matter what.  The sustain is crucial cause the dogs can heal you while DC, power outage, whatever.  The gargs can tank whatever they want and the dogs heal you so you never get low.  I doubt a non pet class can survive long with 239048230948309 things beating on them.

Hi, can you please link which script you are using for the sader?
