Diablo® III

[RoS]The ultimate bow for elemental arrow

If I'll go tanking, I won't bother with that bow.

If I'll go kiting/stutter stepping, it's somewhat a MUST HAVE.

Frost Arrows for Slowing mobs and when coupled with Frosty, that's damn fcking hurtful.

Screaming Skulls for scaring the !@#$ out of your enemies. Enemies running away from fear won't deal damage anyways and I think almost ALL monsters can be FEARED.

Lightning Bolts that stuns enemies via Crit will stun lock enemies

Nether can be used for a source life regeneration

Ball Lightning suddenly became a tad bit less useful not unless you'll gear up with Crushing Blow since it double ticks.

Buriza could compete with this but that's the only other bow I can see competing. The new calamity is nice though with multiple mfd since everything you hit gets mfd but this is a lot stronger I think.


If this effect triggers the RUNE you have equipped? Then you won't even have problems gaining HP via Death Toll rune. or dealing MASSIVE AoE with Grim Reaper.

Then again, why the fck bother with those when you can spam Cluster Bombs/Cluster arrow as your HATRED GENERATOR when you gear enough for it and with this you'll mark enemies with Marked for Death-Mortal Enemy generating TONS of Hatred. 4 multiplied by the numbers affected/damaged. 10 Monsters = free Cluster already.

You see? People should think outside the box even more ;)

We might not be able to outperform them for now, but we'll be fcking enjoying !@#$ when RoS comes.

EDIT: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/10672467220#4

So it will take RUNED MfD then?

Grim Reaper = dead graphics card with all those numbers popping.

Death Toll = 1% of MAX HP per hit on the enemy marked, oh wait. you have 20 enemies marked. Oh well.

Mortal Enemy = Hatred Problems? yeah, can't seem to deplete it.

After watching that? Sorry.. My vote goes to Calamity for being the "best" bow, just because it can also do what the new Bow will do regarding Elemental Arrow.

1. Equip Calamity
2. Set FoK - 0 Cooldown
3. Set Marked of Death - Mortal Enemy
4. Lure 10 enemies
5. Spam FoK until you ran out of Hatred... oh wait.
6. Rinse-Repeat

ANY Hatred attack that we have, pretty much became free with just 2 combinations. A weapon and a Skill. Minimum requirement?

Hatred Cost divided by 4 multiplied by X[number of enemies needed to match Hatred Cost]

HP won't also be much of a problem if you'll get high enough HP then use Death Toll.

Want to support people? Grim Reaper. Valley also procs and renews per hit..

For a bolt pistol it adds a lot of build synergy and with the 0 hatred strafe (dual)

I can change my current build

Finally.. my Mortal Enemy rune gets it's much needed "use".

Me and PaT keeps on getting people to use it. LOL.

Btw, you can use FoK while Bombardment right?

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#eRXTcY!ecX!cYZ.cb

Sorry.. I just made Bombardment useful again.

EDIT: Calamity + ME + 50%(?) Cool Down reduction Gears maybe lets you use Smokescreen like a boss?

INB4 nerf.

Sentry LOVE. If Tasker will really increase Sentry damage attack speed by 100% also and not just companions.. then I'll use that and Calamity.

Calamity putting up mortal enemy marks is a pretty big game changer...

Exactly. Right? >_< We can really amp up our Offensive Capabilities via Hatred Generator + Spenders with Calamity and ME.

I can see myself dual-wielding 2x calamity if I find it before any other weapon :p

Don't know if the change is coming in loot 2.0

You cant equip 2, you will have to choose another one =)

If current Calamity will be considered as Legacy, you can. But if it won't be.. Then yeah, you can't XD

That is true, but a legacy calamity wouldnt be able to beat a new lvl 70 bow even with a bad affix on it, since the damage would be so low.

Hxbow - Strafe no longer costs Hatred


Where have you seen this dude?

some of these amazing new stats showing up, its starting to be pretty amazing. I personally love elemental arrow, so seeing this bow, just wow. This means we can use two hatred spenders!

vita can be rerolled into crushing blow as someone pointed it out but I do believe gems should offer crushing blow stat as well. The 17% damage to elites is nice but crushing blow replacing it would be better. Though I have feeling it will be nerfed soon.

I'm suddenly uncontrollably dribbling at the thought of this pairing up with my calamity...

Sorry.. Just.. don't. Instead.. Pair it with the new Calamity that inflicts Marked for Death - [RUNE] on all enemies you hit with. :P
