CA really has big potential in RoS. If you have not watch Philos killing Azmodan in T6, here is the link. He claimed he is the 1st one to do so post wipe.
Cluster bombs can crit up to 70 mil with appropriate gears and maybe w the scroll.
With insane gears anything is possible. =P
I'm just a normal player, I won't be getting insane things like streamers do as I play in a normal fashion.
While I love seeing what streamers can pull off in beta, I personally think people need to stop thinking that will be what everyone can do come live.

There not spelling mistakes, Im speaking 'Ye Old English'
Unfortunately, once someone does something in a MP game, it has a bad habit of becoming the norm even if its actual practicality is non-existent. Usually why I tend to roll my eyes when you see builds relying on legacy Nat's or some gear set that literally costs dozens billions. It really can be demoralizing to players without the same time and luck to throw at the game and even mid-tier builds have a habit of getting laughed off because they're not of the 1%.
More on topic, I'd certainly be interested in this weapon for lower difficulty farming as I hate the stationary nature of RF. I've been trying to chip away at my paragon levels on live, but it's a slow process since I feel like DHs are the weakest class mechanically at the moment. I have likened Strafe to the poor man's whirlwind in the past, which is certainly true of live, but an item like this really does up its potential. I'm not a fan of (advocating third party) gear swapping, though, which makes some commentary on snapshotting a bit iffy for me.
But just screwing around on beta with Strafe even without the weapon in question, I cobbled together what a number of others seemed to piece up. Thrill of the Hunt and Smokescreen's movement boost are nice for mobility purposes. I also set Vengeance to replenish Hatred'Disc. A bit unreliable for base mobs, but elites and their guaranteed globes did help to keep me spinning. I obviously couldn't fit FoK in with Strafe eating Hatred, but did Bat instead for the occasional active replenishment. Also had NS for replenishing Disc, but I feel like Strafe's mob limit is hurting this choice. Rest is pretty much a matter of taste with a hatred generator and another skill like Shuriken Cloud. Overall, I did okayish, but I'm still kinda stuck in my favoring of Ball Lightning despite trying a few builds on the PTS.
And just dorking around on live with a Sever just because. x.x
