Diablo® III

All of a sudden...

For those you know of the Demon hunter builds. Spike trap was (before) a hatred generator giving 4 hatred per trap. Being an insainly valueable skill.

Now it costs 30? wtf? this has serriously given me doubts on even having DH as my first build. Which I wanted sence I knew of D3.

It was such a hatred proudcer that you could acutally use rapid fire enough, and just throw some traps, and continue using rapid fire. Now you need to use 2 skill slots for slow !@# primary generators making rapid fire almost not tactical because youd be better off with an AOE skill because it takes so long to gain hatred back.

Just currious on thoughts of fellow Demon hunter fans. I personaly think its a horible decision.

Didnt plan on using the trap spell at all. as for rapid fire, it seems hatred generates just fine with other other skills that it is still a great move.

Can't really say until I test it out. We all know things are going to be (heavily) rebalanced after launch.

Haven't noticed a problem. I get most of my hatred from my left click. =/

I guess what Im saying is I saw it useful as a generator. but now that its turned to a hatred coster I dont see it being useful whatsoever because there are FAR better skills hatred should be spent on.

Oh boohoo, they stopped something that, by what you claim, let you just rapidfire 24/7 with little-to-no downtime. They might as well not put a cost on rapidfire either?

Skills that COST resources should do exactly that. There could possibly be builds or situations that allow you to use the skill much longer (like a Barbarian using Whirlwind, with every +rage passive, and a rune on whirlwind to make it last longer), but not a situation where, quite simply, whirlwind just lasts forever by default.

Here is how you could potentially do it. Note that you get 3 hatred per grenade, runed to 6 per grenade, and passive'd to 8 hatred for every grenade.

That all depends on your build and how you play I guess.

And also on top of that.... Does that mean if I can have 6 traps out at once... does that mean that each one cost 30? or is it 6 traps for 30?

It's more balanced now, hopefully, so I'm fine with it. I'm reserving all judgement for any of this until launch. Monk has had some pretty major changes lately, but the game isn't even out yet and we are really raging over balance changes?

Come on now! Cheer up.

\Your right. I know nothing means anything until level 60. Plenty of time for experimentation. Could find a weapon that changes my whole build. I know all this.

But damnit I had a nasty build set up and spike traps were a huge part of it. Now I need to go back to the drawing board. It caught me off guard I supose.

Since* also really? You didn't know about D3 until the final class was announced?

Were you living under a rock of some sort?

Id still like to know if its 30 hatred per trap or 30 hatred for all 3 of the traps (6 with rune)
