Diablo® III

Nat's Slayer (rarity)

No calamity here but I've found full nat's set at least 4 times around now.

Where's the Dawns in your list? I've found at least 5 dawns and at least 5 balefire casters. Other numbers are about the same but I've got 1 Calamity and one K'Mar. No Slayer. Must be pretty rare, but obviously not as rare as Calamity.


Ahh. I've found 2 of those.

I dont seem to get many one-handed crossbow drops really. Most of my drops are rings...

Ive' found 2 Nat's slayers and 1 Kridershot. So far Kridershot with quiver gives me ALOT of more dps. Need a better 2 hand and maurader set before I can think about using nat salyer. Unfortunately I've only gotten Maruaders boots so far...

i have found like 7-8 slayers, while the other set crossbows i found about 1-2 of each, no calamity, so i guess it's just random... I actually found the last one 2 hours ago ..^^

Meh, the think is that the +% damage is actually kinda bad with DW, because it only affects the weapon that has the affix, so it is essentially reduced by half when you take into consideration the total average dps of the 2 crossbows.

So 10% damage on one crossbow and none on the other = +5% total dps.

You need both crossbows to have +10% damage to actually have +10% dps, so sometimes other stats might be better. For example +% elite damage is applied to both weapons. Reduced resource reduction as well.

The really good think about Slayer is the set bonus. So if you have a Calamity and plans on using DW, might be better to reroll the +% damage into another stuff. Of course, +5% damage is never a bad think, just keep in might that it's NOT 10%.

I have ALLLLL the bows available in the game and ALLL the DH set pieces.

I have like 2 Kridershot, 1 Calamity, 3 full set of Marauders, too many Nat's pieces, heck I even have the really rare Ice Climbers, TnT and Frostburn.

I even got 2 nat's dropped in one chest.

But I never ever...................ever saw a single Natalya's Slayer, which is the last puzzle I need to complete my DH.
After 326 paragon level, never seen one dropped.

Is Nat's Slayer the rarest item in the game or what?!?!

from paragon about 320 to 380
1 calamity (was like my second legendary after hitting 70)
Nats: 2 helms, 1 chest, 1 ring, 1 boots, no xbow
Marauders: 3 pants, 2 chest, 1 helm, 2 gloves, no shoulders
2 Prides fall (out of roughly 15 caches)
5 Danettas

So... Apparently marauder shoulders and nats xbow is rarer than calamity for me, firstworldproblems

oh and a meh witching hour

My Nat Slayer is great.. I love it.. but I still want a Calamity :(

I have 4 Slayer, 2 equipped and 2 in stash, and I love it because it is so much easier to reroll to high DPS. Managed to get many nice weapons such Krider, hellrack, danetta and etc but i just can't get a CALAMITY. Looks like everyone must have a last piece of jigsaw which will keep you playing the game.

IMO, speedy strafe T1 Rift is the best way to farm for legs.

PRAISE RNGESUS. I got one a few days ago in a T1 rift, not a good roll though.

Please. That is a perfect roll. Stop being lazy and roll the damage.


Laziness ceased. Damage increased.

I've been reading yesterday where people got their Nat slayer. I've read act 1 and act 2 Dalghur oasis.

And now, yeah it dropped on me at act 1 cemetery. Since yesterday I've been clearing dalghur on T6. Now this morning I tried act 1 T5, and it finally dropped, but it's only at 2402 base dps.

I'll go solo farm some more and see my luck. I've also finally got that Marauder gloves on act 3 keeps on T6.

It's not even close to the rarity of Calamity and Kridershot.

For every 2 Danetta's you find, you'll find 1 Nat slayer
For every 10 Danetta's you find, you'll find 1 Calamity.


No. Just no.

According to the "leaked" drop rates, it isn't that rare. Something like 9% of 1 legendary 1 hand xbows in torment will be Nats. (obviously the fact it only drops in torment and you can't gamble it, makes it somewhat rarer than the 9% alludes to.)

I've found 3 slayers, 1 calamity, and pretty much every other bow/xbow/1her except kridershot.

I have dropped 2 slayers, no calamity no krideshot.

i was lucky that my first Slayer had awsome stats.

2796 DPS

10% dmg
730+ dex
1289 black dmg
socket

couldnt ask for more

It and Kmart are half the rarity of the "common" handbows: Balefire, Dawn, Izzuccob, etc.

Dropped one today at paragon 380 finally, literally found it under a loose stone.

The slayer is actually the rarest of the bunch. It's not even that it's so incredibly hard to find. You'll run across 1 of the rare bows every week if you are doing rifts for a few hours each day. The problem you run across is that often the rolls suck.

Regardless of what anybody's experiences with drops are, the rarest DH weapons are:

Kridershot
Calamity
Chanon Bolter

I have observed this personally but that is irrelevant. Most importantly, the leaked drop rates confirm this. Nat's slayer is certainly lower than Dawn, Izzucob, Balefire Caster, and Danettas but it is not more rare than the previously listed weapons.

Out of any DH ranged weapon, Nat's slayer has the best chance to roll well.

Cold Damage
6-10% DMG
Dex
Socket
2 Random Secondaries

No other bow in the game has static rolls that are as good. The static rolls and the Nat's set bonus is why you see so many demon hunters using Nat's Slayer.
