You´re right that it was a "defeatist" way of posting, but I don´t think DH are completely inefficient. I just mentioned less efficient compared to some other classes when it comes to exp farming, based on my personal experience and data I collect.
Actually, I´d be interested in what kind of exp per hour gains the optimized, amazingly geared DHs are able to achieve, both solo and in a party and what setup they use.
I´m not the type to give up and I´ll test every possible combination of skills I can think of to figure out what works best for me. I do want to level my DH and I will find a way to do it efficiently relative to other classes or get to 100 before figuring it out.
I´ve discussed this with Nyan last night and I switched over to Bombardment, just have to optimize it to my liking without snapswapping and without legacy nats.
As for gathering mobs, I believe Razor Disk works better than Twin Chakram due to its trajectory.
Hungering Arrow is bad because it stops midway and is homing in on nearest targets. Entangling Shot isn´t ideal because it slows the targets that are supposed to come to you to meet their doom, not to mention the missile itself feels relatively slow.
Grenades have somewhat limited range (distance) and a slight delay before they hit but Cluster Grenades are quite useful for resource gen, among other things. I´ll check if Fire Bomb isn´t best suited for this job though.
As for Bola Shot and its delayed explosion runes, in Fields I often get the feeling that only the main target starts to move towards me and the explosion doesn´t always alarm the others (mostly noticeable vs leapers). I guess Acid Strike could perform better.
Anyway, I´ll work on it. Btw. is there any sort of data/comparison about the distance DH missiles are able to cover before disappearing?
