Melee Demon Hunter Build

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#fZWgjQ!fTb!abaaaa

Want to have a new twist on the demon hunter. this build is all about close range moves and fast grenade spamming close range. hunter would use a single hand cross bow and a shield. turret for extra damage reduction. any questions/comments post em.

I would go for something like this:

With Fundamentals your hatred generator is your melee swing instead of grenades, and it hits pretty hard now at 200% damage single target. Changed a few glyphs to make AoEing packs a bit easier. Replaced grenades with Shadow Power to give you on-demand burst and life steal.

I'd also possible consider taking Night Stalker as well instead of Numbing Traps to keep discipline flowing since this build will be a bit heavy of discipline usage.

troll build for a ranged class. you'd be better off playing a wizard melee kiting build. i like the new thread for an old topic discussed on half of the other threads though.

I actually started tinkering with the idea last night. I have not looked at any of the previous builds for the trapper hunter.

This is what I came up with
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#hWgdjQ!fbg!YZZbbY. It might be fun to try on lower difficulties.

I think trying out builds like these is going to be more fun than adding more points to int and calling that customization. :)

The main problem I see with your build and any build of a similar type (Ie: uses a base attack as your gen) is that we only have 6 spell slots including the 2 mouse buttons so you will have to be constantly switching one of your slots out between 2 abilities to keep your regular attack on a mouse click
