Haedrig's Gift GR20 Season 24 Guide

Introduction

The Haedrig's Gift is a fast track to getting your first full (6) Pieces Set during the start of a season. Completing Chapters 2 through 4 of the Season Journey rewards you with one bag containing two set items for your class. The first chapters are very easy, but in Chapter 4 you are required to complete a Solo Greater Rift 20 in order to unlock the last pieces, which will give you a huge boost to your progression and clear speed. This overview will help to you get started as fast as possible.

This time around, Demon Hunters and Monks are the big winners here, although none of the sets are really great or part of any META setup. They get Natalya's Vengeance and Uliana's Stratagem respectively, which can transition into better setups with ease. Luckily GR20 is very easy to complete even without a proper setup in most cases.

These proposed setups use the minimum requirements to clear GR20, which is usually just 4 pieces of the set and random yellow items. In some cases a single legendary item (which you will very likely have from gambling/cubing at level 1 or found along the way) was added to make the setup stronger because the first bonuses of some sets don't provide enough power for easy completion.

Some of these sets are quite bad without their (6) Bonus or even with it when they don't have a range of supporting legendary items. This especially applies to Wizards with Vyr's Amazing Arcana and Necromancers with Trag'Oul's Avatar, so instead of going with your half-completed set you can just run with Legacy of Dreams, level it up a few times and equip any random Legendary items you can find, making it even easier to complete GR20 with just about anything you choose. Check below to find out more about the suggested setups.


GR20 Setups

Barbarian - Immortal King's Call

GR20 Run
Keep up Wrath of the Berserker and Call of the Ancients at all times. Ancients' Fury will supply you with a lot of resources already, but you can get even more with Threatening Shout. Activate your buffs as much as possible, Furious Charge into big packs of Enemies and smash them with Hammer of the Ancients. If you have found any other strong damage multiplier for a different skill, use that instead to make it easier.

Full Set
After you complete the full Immortal King's Call set, focus on acquiring the remaining key items for the build. These should easily carry you into Torment XVI and beyond:

  • The Gavel of Judgment
  • Bracers of the First Men
  • Band of Might

Make sure to check out the full build guide here: Immortal King HotA Guide

Once you have the full setup, use it to farm for any other build you may want to play. Refer to our Solo Tier List to get a better picture. The overall best setup we recommend for Barbarians is the Wrath of the Wastes Rend build. Other options are Horde of the Ninety Savages Frenzy or Might of the Earth Earthquake.

Crusader - Seeker of the Light

GR20 Run
With just your 4-piece bonus you will have a hard time completing GR20. If you have found any strong damage multipliers for any skill, use that instead. With Seeker of the Light only, you will have an easier time if you have found at least one of the supporting legendaries. Falling Sword into big packs of enemies and decimate them with Blessed Hammer. Use Provoke and Shield Glare to recover resources.

Full Set
After you complete the full Seeker of the Light set, focus on acquiring the remaining key items for the build. These should easily carry you into Torment XVI and beyond:

Demon Hunter - Natalya's Vengeance

GR20 Run
Natalya's Vengeance is already pretty decent on its own by giving huge bonuses to Rain of Vengeance, but to make it even easier, you should combine it with either Lord Greenstone's Fan or Karlei's Point from crafting them at level 1. Alternatively, just play around whatever multipliers you have. Strafe around, use your generator to get resources and spam Rain of Vengeance as much as possible.

Full Set
After you complete the full Natalya's Vengeance set, focus on acquiring the remaining key items for the build. These should easily carry you into Torment XVI and beyond:

  • The Ninth Cirri Satchel
  • Hunter's Wrath
  • Ring of Royal Grandeur
  • 3 pieces of the Gears of Dreadlands

Monk - Uliana's Stratagem

GR20 Run
Uliana's Stratagem doesn't require any additional help and works great for GR20: Apply Exploding Palm to groups of enemies with your Way of the Hundred Fists, then start the chain reaction with Seven-Sided Strike. Group up enemies with Cyclone Strike and stay mobile with Dashing Strike. Blinding Flash can be used for additional damage or be replaced with other choices such as Serenity or a Mantra.

Full Set

  • The Fist of Az'turrasq
  • In-Geom
  • The Flow of Eternity
  • Gungdo Gear
  • Madstone

The overall best setups we recommend for Monks are the Patterns of Justice Tempest Rush or Inna's Mantra Mystic Ally builds. Click here for Tempest Rush or Mystic Ally guides.

Necromancer - Trag'Oul's Avatar

GR20 Run
Trag'Oul's Avatar isn't a great starter and offers nothing to help you for GR20. Instead, use Legacy of Dreams with any random legendary items you can find. If you acquire any strong damage multipliers, use that to make it easier, otherwise acquire Grasps of Essence by gambling with a level 1 Necromancer and use Corpse Explosion as your main skill. Stack some Cooldown Reduction and produce corpses with Command Golem Flesh Golem, Land of the Dead and by killing enemies.

Full Set
After you complete the full Trag'Oul's Avatar set, focus on acquiring the remaining key items for the build. These should easily carry you into Torment XVI and beyond:

  • Grasps of Essence
  • Trag'Oul's Corroded Fang
  • Messerschmidt's Reaver
  • Krysbin's Sentence

The overall best setups we recommend for Necromancers are the Legacy of Dreams Skeletal Mage or Corpse Explosion builds. Click here for Corpse Explosion or Skeleton Mage guides.

Witch Doctor - Spirit of Arachyr

GR20 Run
Witch Doctor has great base skills and a friendly helpful spider queen from the Spirit of Arachyr (2) Bonus. Summon your minions, apply DoTs and everything will eventually melt. Keep up Soul Harvest and stay close to enemies for the Confidence Ritual bonus. If you have any strong damage multipliers for other skills, remove Gargantuan to speed things up. Use Spirit Walk to stay mobile and Piranhado to group up enemies. Also make sure to Hex an enemy every 10 seconds for the defensive bonuses.

Full Set

Wizard - Vyr's Amazing Arcana

GR20 Run
Vyr's Amazing Arcana doesn't do much on its own, even with the full bonus. You are better off equipping any random legendary items you find and combining them with Legacy of Dreams. If you find any strong damage multipliers for any skill, use that to make it easier, otherwise go with Arcane Orb Frozen Orb. Activate your Magic Weapon and Familiar, group up enemies with Black Hole and destroy them from a distance where the orbs detonate exactly on top of your enemies.
