I haven't played the beta but i have studied hours of footage on the DH since it will be my only character. and i have to say they have Fan of Knives and some grenades and at lower levels don't seem to do a lot of damage but at higher levels seem to completely own!!
Just out of curiosity, why would you limit yourself to one character?
Ive been using Twin Chakram + 4x Snare arrow , flash of knives , vault & SS and it is a serious asskicking build .
I vault in , flash of knives , SS out start chakraming and then throwing snare arrows at any mobs that have snare wear off , only passive really needed for this is cull the week for the extra DPS bonus on snared mobs , which this is entirely based around
Ball lightning. I like it more than twin chakram...but yeah, both abilities are gross.
In the late beta builds, demon hunter didn't have any AoE until level 10 and that was bola shot. In earlier builds, we actually got chakram and elemental arrow and our AoE was good.
I mean everyone is saying it, but the entire Chakram skill is excellent to the point of being OP, and no part moreso than Twin Chakram. Although I admit to wanting to test Razor Spiral/Boomerang when I hit those levels.
Bolas can be used for very high AOE DPS for a left click skill with a 130% AOE with a 14 yard radius using the very first unlocked rune. But there's some SERIOUS ease of use issues.
DH has a huge amount of options for AOE, no doubt about it
Fan of knives (Self centered AOE)
Runed Impale (Linear projectile)
Elemental Arrow (Linear projectile)
Chakram (weird paths that change based on runes)
Spike traps (AoE traps)
Caltrops w/ rune (Deal damage+ground target slow)
Rain of Vengeance
High level runed hungering arrow has AoE on critical
...tons of options for AOE through DH's.
at first I totally thought Rapid Fire would own everything... but apparently it starts to fail as group-wiper in the mid game (well, it's not designed to be AoE in the first place)... It still is good to use it on single target, but when you start to get swarmed, I would suggest Twin Chakram is the way to go... especially in dungeons where space is tight...
Currently I'm level 24 in Act 2... I start to lose the touch when I stay on Hungering Arrow and Rapid Fire... then I changed to Bola lightning + Twin Chakram, everything is piece of cake again...
