So at best you could call me a casual gamer. I've only just beet the game on normal recently. I love the flavor of the DH, but was mildly concerned that it took me well over 15 min to kill the skeleton king in act 1 in nightmare. I'm using bola shot with the explosive runes, and rapid fire with the seeking rune. I have multi shot with the electric rune, the explosive traps with the rune that snares, and my discipline I have the caltrops with snare runs and the flip with the stun rune. Tactical I use the increased damage at a distance, and increases in snare, I forget what the third is.

Anyway, basic strategy is flip forward, stun, drop caltrops, flip back fire 2-3 bola shots, drop explosive traps and rapid fire. Multi shot is used in areas where it is more open. Wash, rinse, repeat. It more or less worked in normal, but it is very lacking in NM. I realize that there is a big step up in difficulty between the two, but I don't think it should take me almost 5 min for any unique mob and 15-20 min for the skeleton king. I had the templar mook with some good gear. It says I have 419 dps, but I can't help thinking that I'm doing something wrong.

Can anyone give me any pointers? Make suggestions? Thanks in advance, and my appoligies for the awesome spelling!

Humor me a second. What level are you?

I only ask because your build doesn't sound very good to me so I am making one for you.

Switch out multi for twin chakrams and then elemental arrow (frost or ball lightning, nether at 60) when you get it, bola's sole utility is in bitter pill which i don't think you have yet, better of going with hungering arrow. SS and preparation are a big part of any DH's build later on but you don't have to use it at the moment. but yeah, hungering + chakrams/elemental will get you all the way to inferno, easy.

You can change Chemical Burn for Impact if you want for a little bit of stun.

How do you have both Hungering and Impale when they are both in the same tree?

EDIT: trying to tweek my level 40 build and can't figure out how you have some attacks from the same trees.
