No smokescreen and prep, using grenadier without cluster arrow. Go rework your build.

Edit: Build I'm currently using

Smokescreen w/ lingering fog
Prep w/ battle scars
Companion w/ bat
Rain of Vengeance w/ stampede
Hungering arrow w/ devouring
Impale w/ impact

Passives are tactical advantage, sharpshooter, Archery

You can change up the pet and generator/spender, but the other ones are pretty vital. Rain of Vengeance w/ stampede is great for mass CC on elite/champ packs. Smoke Screen is necessary so you don't die. Also, I don't recommend any other discipline spenders with smokescreen, not even marked for death. You will need ever precious discipline point for it.

The build i got through hell with is the following:

You seem to have good enough gear, but your strat looks like it needs work, as the above post said. Your damage is pretty high, so i would suggest going with a build similar to mine. Lay so much unrelenting damage that your enemies die before they get a chance to hit you.

And when you're done realizing how much of a difference that makes....



Pick the Templar as a companion you can use him as bait, a healbot and a tank.
Change your gems to emerald except for the helm and keep that Vit%. Replace your belt. Your abilities are fairly open to change. Except for smokescreen and Prep. It's more than *kind of* a must.
