I know creator didnt say anything about Hellreach, but i've seen it mentioned a few times.
What should you change in build to make Hellreach worth using?
Firstly, you must use spirit of vengeance since it grants an absurd amount of damage. In consequence, you will no longer have paragon and will afford to stack % life and flat life. So, you'll have to give up on lacuni filled with crystal of tears since that will greatly reduce your life. I'm not sure about specific gear, but there are pieces that you can use on hellreach as well, such as hammerfist, giant knuckles. You'll probably get more damage from a honorific belt and boots, but I'm not entirely certain.
Secondly, if you're basing your gear on hellreach that means you will not afford to use askarbydd at its full power and so you will not have access to rapid wyrmshot, which is crucial in higher tier labs since it allows us to have great single target damage at distance. Regular wyrmshot scales badly with labyrinth and barrage needs you to be close to the enemies, which is extremely risky in higher labs. The conclusion is that hellreach is bad in labyrinth, not only because of that, but also because it's significantly more expensive to gear up for lab because you no longer get health from gems, but you're going to use gems anyway for max resists unless you have absolutely insane gear like 3 archbishop laz trophies (or tyrael's might) and even then you'll use some.
But hellreach is better and much cheaper (at least later in league) than regular bowzon. Depends on your goals I guess.

I have mainly 3 concerns with the build: anything that breathes your way kills you no matter what (i'm at 8k hp, max res); leech is not enough to sustain mana and hp (22% hp leech and 35% mana leech and i'm always short on mana or can't sustain life); got 2 ripstar rings, they're amazing to boost damage, equipped a decent crafted short war bow with knife throw on striking -> damage still feels crap and leech vs small crowds is not enough. Tbh i don't know what to think, I understand that running with 0 defense makes offence the best defense but if i cant farm there's no gear progression (even with 340+ MF i dropped 1 SU in 4 TA runs that took an eternity because if they see you you're basically dead and in K3K in 3 runs got no set drops...). Right now i'm doing Nih-runs in hell for stat signets but i'll probably go back to nightmare since i can't kill shit fast enough to not die to fucking shamans spawning 10000 faerie rings. I feel stuck in a stupid loop and can't get out of it and with /p8 option gone single player is going to take forever to get any gear besides crafts.
8k is pretty low. You should be sitting at 10k+ hp if you picked paragon or spirit of vengeance. I suggest you use paragon until you get some better gear (if you do intend to change your uberskill). Other than that, bowzon is pretty much a glass cannon so you should be killing stuff very fast before they get a chance to kill you, at least until later in game (as in after you get most of your charms).
22%hp and 35% mana leech is an absurd amount and should easily top you, at least the mana. This doesn't seem right at all. Other than that, I suggest you craft a reflex bow whenever you get the chance and aim for +300 max dmg and 200% ed. That's the kind of bow you want to use for lategame.
k3k 3 runs with no sets on 340% mf is extremely unlucky. You should grind k3k until you get your signet cap. If you play single player, you should find significantly more items.
