Diablo® III

Why do most people choose Hungering Arrow?

I've looked through a lot of builds and I've noticed that the large majority of people choose Hungering Arrow over the other 3 primary skills. Are the other 3 skills just under par or...?

Because Guided Arrow was so cool in D2.

Because it is the strongest single target of all the generators, it still does decent AoE damage, and who doesn't love piercing/guiding arrows?

As Nidale said, because Guided Arrow was awesome in D2. :)

Guided arrow FTW!!! when piercing was awesome w/ it. However for leveling I will probably opt for the chain gang. CC, 4 targets x 75% dmg=300% dmg which is probably going to occur the majority of the time, plus my single target hatred spender will be a heavy hitter(either rapid or impale). Late game I will be using devouring or shatter arrows.

But seriously, it's a very good spell; make sure you take it in your kit. =)

Entangling + Chain Gang still only does 75% weapon damage, it only damages the main target it hits.

If it was 300% every shot AND a slow, I promise you no one would use anything else.

Because i was outta discipline running for my life and i was shooting in the direction i was running and the arrow does a 180 and hits the target behind me. That is why, i can shoot these puppies in any direction and they WILL hit! makes kiting even better.

Actually chain gang does damage every enemy that gets tied up with it.

Which one is it? Does dmg all targets hit or only the first target and not the additional CC targets?
The forums have conflicting information in a lot of threads

If it chains to a target it damages them. Try it out yourself, doesn't take long to get the skill. I've been using chain gang all the way through normal with impale for single target damage/CC.

At low level I have both Hungering and Chain set. Cast 1-2 chain and hunger the crap out of them.
