Diablo® III

so who's playing with a 2 handed xbow?

sign in so we can unitedly mock DW's and 1 handers as it takes them 2-3 shots to accomplish what we can do in one.
-.-
raw power FTW.

link your best 2 hander

2402.4 manticore w/ 629 dex, 34% CD + socket

derp I salvaged a Manticore yesterday. Was that a dumb idea?

Nope not a bad idea. It's base max DPS is 2500. Some 400 shy of the 2900 that 1 Handed bows can roll.

It basically gives you 100% more Crit damage for 5% less CC damage. You need one with damn near max to make it worth the effort.

yes, that is if you want to hit like freight train. :P

1 hand xbows @1.6 asp @ say 2700 dps.
2 handers @1.1asp @ 2400 dps

if you were to play at the same attack speed... the 2 hander would be 3400 dps @ 1.6asp

kaBOOM!

you can do better!

im curious if a +10% damage roll on a 2 hander would out dps the 35%CD on a manticore...

try caltrops too, plant and back up a little till they group nicely... BOOM!.

or run in and around groups till they mobs chase you... turn and shoot a single entangling at the front enemy which slows and blocks the crowd behind for a nice grouping.... BOOM!

2 handers IMO take advantage of hexing pants as well.... super easy to stutter step when one shot downs things opposed to 2 or 3 of a DW or 1hander

real simple shoot, move, shoot, move concept...

asp buff does not out dps a single shot.
@ 1.18asp, a manticore would be @ ~2577.12 with 35% CD and socket.

Iria did the math on that I believe, anyway I have one in the stash I'm itching to try out once elemental damage on weapons gets fixed.

A pity the Arcane Barb mat is so annoying to farm - I can't seem to find a vendor selling white Oxybeles either, while on the other hand that blacksmith in A3 has spawned Penetrators in his inventory more than a couple of times.

New DH here.

I found a 2700 dps 1H so I'm using that right now. I'm still working on reolling it for a socket.

I was a manticore lover back in the day. I bought a RMAH double socket that I used for a huge portion of vanilla. However I've gone to a 1h in RoS and am still waiting for my Nat's Slayer.

Last weekend I got a decent Manticore that is on my follower. I thought I'd show it off since you were sharing. :)

2401.9, 713 Dex and Max CC (35%)

Being an old fan I tried using it and it hit like a truck. I saw massive crit increases!! I also gain 100K dps. However the time it took to get my hatred back up to begin again was too much for me. It felt like forever. I think I'd need Pride's Fall, putting my Reaper's Wraps back on and maybe even going Blood Vengeance to get that hatred regen to increase. Most of that I'm just not willing to do right now.

I didn't have the guts to salvage it though. I think its worth playing around with but I'm just not in the mood.

From my memory it was the CD needed to be around 65% to be better than the 10% damage. It was only a day or two ago so I will see if I can find it quick.
