This is the build I was looking at for a melee hunter...
Here is what I was envisioning:
When Enemies are approaching, activate Shadow Power.
Throw down Clatrops and engage!
When surrounded, use fan of knives and Chakram (shuriken cloud)
VS particularly tough opponents (or if I just need life), use mark of death.
I thought this looked pretty cool. The only thing I don't like is that its a LOT of discipline which, if I remember correctly, is not going to be a quickly regenerating resource...
Anyway, any thoughts on the concept?
