so DiE brought me into a game the other day and walked me through this build. showed me how he played it and gave me the breakdown of the order of attack. it was a ton of fun tbh, in a game with him. when i tried this build on my own solo there was a couple things that i just couldn't get to work properly in my favor and basically just didn't sit quite right with me.
1: depending on your dps the soj even with the cold proc for CtW didn't\'t add up as an actual dps gain. don't get me wrong it wasn't much of a loss doing the math and the snare affect came in handy.
example: if i have 350k sheet dps and changing my rare ring for the soj was a 50k loss (which is was more like 57k, but i was slightly higher than 350) quick math shows
300k x 15% is 45k so now im only at 345k dps. granted i get the bonus to bola so that helps a bit to. on the other hand the the extra disc is nice as well as the BvE. it was only the BvE that made this really worthwhile. IMO
2: MS is such a huge spender and if there isn't a group of mobs in front of you the disc gain is minimal at best. and without using MS you won't get the CtW bonus.
so i tweaked this build a little bit and am finding it very viable, at least for me. the basic mechanics are the same. the idea behind the build is the same, with just a slightly different skill set.http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#WiVYdg!Yce!cZbacc
this skill set requires more discipline to be used when using your discipline, since MS is not tehre to give you some back. DiE i know you don't use supp fire anyway. that being said +disc gear is helpful.
by using this skill set you could essentially gain even more dps because you will not need a cold soj or tals. the hatred usage is almost non-existent. since the idea here is to get off 5-6 bolas then fire a MS for the cold proc, nothing really changes. FA cost 10 hatred and snares for 1 second. with 2.75 aps you can fire off 1 FA every 3rd bola for the cost of 1 hatred. this gives you basically constant snare.
i usually fire 1 FA at my target to slow them. then stat firing my bola's, followed by a FA. at that point if they have not died yet i can continue to fire 3 bola 1 FA rinse repeat.
thank you DiE for showing me this in game. i know i said i didn't like it but now I've changed my mind.
