Diablo® III

80% of Rare Drops are for the DH class....

Does this only happen to me and my friends? It seems that we ALWAYS get rare crossbows, DH Chests, Quivers...... It's gotten to the point if I pick up a bow I just toss it without identifying it, so My buddy can crush it for Blacksmithing.....

None of us even play the DH class which makes it even worse!

I feel like I've had a similar experience. My friends and I typically roll 3 player co-op, and we constantly make jokes about, "Can't wait until we can finally kill Belial on Inferno, I'm excited to get two new crossbows and a quiver for the DH." Sadly, we play Barb, Monk, WD.

I feel like it's not really statistically supported though, but it just feels that way since none of us want DH gear.

Perhaps the gaming gods are telling you two that you should be playing DH's?
I'd say that it varies. I've played my Barb & found gear for other classes adn about as many Barb items.
But, on my DH, I find more Barb items. Maybe it's skewed so that you get items from other classes to encourage you to play the other classes as well....

Now that I think about it, I do drop more rare crossbow/bow/quiver/clock stuff than I do mojos, orbs, wizard hats, mighty weapons and daibos combined.

Yup without a doubt the majority of my drops are DH, I'm huge on quivers and crossbows. Second would probably be 2 barbarian items, I get a TON of braids but nowhere near the level of DH stuff.

I rarely pickup anything Witch Doctor exclusive

On the contrary, when I'm playing my DH i get mostly monk and wizard drops like staves and fist weapons so to each his own.

Maybe it's a ploy by blizzard to have items drop of classes that aren't in group to make you use the auction house more. I wish on my barb I could switch to throwing actual quivers, I can't get rid of them fast enough.

i too have a lvl 1 demon hunter with a bag full of bows xbows quivers and chests, that range in level from 1-50. im kindof tired of it myself, every time i go to town to shard the stuff at least 2/3 of my bag is DH specific gear, or barb belts.

Same here. I get a pile of them that when i clear my bag out theres usually 4-6 quivers and random everything else.

It's flawed because of the DH only items:
Bow, crossbow, 1h crossbow, quiver for a total of 4 since no one else ever uses these in the weapon or offhand slot. I'm considering any ranged to be DH only, because other than the DH, who else is going to carry the range weapons?

Barbarian has 2 - mighty weapons, 2h mighty
Monk has 2 - fist weapons, daibo
Wiz has 2 - their offhand and wands
WD has 2 - ceremonial knives and offhands

All other items like axes, swords, maces and whatnot are shared by all the other 4 classes which makes them more valuable and useful. This makes the pool of items much higher for ranged
