Freeze wiz actually deactivates Cotw as well
hmmm.... I did not know this, Thanks for this info bud
I guess that's what I get for being away from DH so long :P
Ya, kinda sucks if you ask me. Buriza and Azurewrath causes the same issue, so they can't be completely relied upon for Cull :(
Hey sorry, just wanted to hop in on this one.
I've done a ton of testing with Freeze and CtW, as long as the skill that applied the freezing also applies slowing, you will still obtain the CtW bonus. Freezing alone doesn't give the bonus, but it doesn't cancel it either. I'm not sure if Frost Nova cancels the chill effect though, I've never tried that, but I would assume as long as your shot has cold damage you get the bonus.
Ya I should have been more specific and not used the term "deactivate" What I meant was the freeze itself, whether by follower or a Wiz, does not provide the cull bonus which means in most cases you will still have to provide your own snare effect during this time. Sorry for the confusion. :P
@DiEoxidE <(^^<)Have you ever considered taking advantage of party debuffs which slow down monsters for you (i.e. proc cull the weak), and then changing multishot to something else? Like CA -> LfB (may require bat companion)Examples of stuff that proc cull the weak in partiesCrippling wave (common on ZDS monks)Mantra of Conviction -> Disheaten (slows monsters within 20 yards)Barb's w/ cold SoJ (very common)Time bubble (wizard bubblezzz)Other demon hunters that use slow attacks
I'm not nearly as trusting of my teammates outside of TPA or long time friends to make sure they provide those things reliably lol. Not to mention for whatever reason, I tend to pull agro more than anyone in a party and often having to fend for myself almost half the time. It's hilarious sometimes watching leapers attack a WD and then all literally hoping over him to surround me in a matter of seconds lol.
Outside of that though, CA wouldn't be a bad idea granted everything's working out near perfect every time. I hate using the bat though, and I just pulled myself off of using it for multishot. :P
so did you guys use teamspeak or skype orrr??? ;)
The vid was good, but I was stunned that Nyan has a voice (>^^)>
Is there a solo vid for this build?
Ya we use teamspeak for the TPA Guild.
The last 1/3 of the tutorial video is technically a short solo run. Maybe I will record a full run later at some point, but there will be no distinct difference in the execution of this build, you'll only just see "more" of it.
As a bit of an aside, you want to use as much of the cone that is beyond 30 or so yards from the player as possible (i.e. you don't want to engage a pack at the edge of the screen). One of reasons, IMO, why DiE's build feels so smooth, is because the player engages the packs at long range with Bola and by the time they're loaded up with bolas they are at the perfect range for a Full Broadside.
