Sentry - Chain of Torment range too small

So it seems to me the max range of the chain is about 25 yards, as much as i tried to make use of it, as its a very interesting skill, that range was just way too small for common DH gameplay. If I'm to use it I pretty much have to expect taking melee hits and i see this viable only in the more unorthodox builds, maybe melee or DH with Shadow Power (Gloom). I really hope they increase the range to like 35 or 40 yards at least. Anyone else have tried the ability?

I think turrets are whack to begin with. 20% damage is pretty bad.

Hmm... Cast once for 20% more damage (+8% if using homing rockets)... I'm not seeing how this is a bad thing. It's a fairly significant DPS increase as long as you keep it in range of mobs.

I am trying to use the chain, but I agree, it is always breaking when I get a comfortable distance.

I like the turret overall, as it basically just adds to your dps, and can provide that last hit when you are running for your life or using ss.

It made Belial insanely easy. I just had my Companion (Bat) out, a Sentry, then I just let them pick away at the boss while I avoided his AOE's. I shot him when it was safe..
