1h xbows do about as much as 2h bows according to best in AH, around 900. xbows have peaked around 1200. however I feel dual wielding xbows isn't very strong, compared to using a quiver, especially when you can find super good ones for cheap in AH. look for one with 70+ dex, +max discipline, and vit/hatred regen/bonus damage to your skills of choice (hungering arrow, entangling arrow, multishot, 3 others that are less viable imo)... and watch how much your dps will go up over 2x 1handers. u can still use your best 1hander, but try to find something with 700+ dps for inferno
personally ive discovered elemental arrows nether rune ( the last one) is pretty overpowered, especially with sharpshooter due to its 1-2 seocnd reset delay. I hit for a good 2-3 crits per mob when it goes off. I use an xbow with archery for 50% crit dmg buff, but I feel a 1h xbow would work even better with these skills, to crit more often and shoot faster (this is with using elemental arrows nether rune as your hatred dump) Multishot is amazing with a full sharpshooter, nothing like a screen full of yellow numbers.
If you use a 2h bow I wouldn't recomend sharpshooter, unless you are stacking crit stats on gear or using impale with grievous wound rune, and even then I wouldn't recomend using sharpshooter because you don't get any crit buff from archery. I would use steady aim, cull the weak or some ultity skill that optimizes your build.
I used to use impale as my main hatred dump attack (with entangling shots chain gang as generator, but found it too impossible to keep track of the sharpshooter crit stack without keeping inventory open at all times, and wasted it on my generator while trying to cc a mob. I then heard elemental arrow was really strong so I switched it, and the damage is so much more than impale its rediculous. difference between a 20 second asmodan kill in hell and a 45-50 second kill.
