I typically play my DH as ranged but when I do pick up my meele set of gear, which isstill a work in progress so I can't do more than act 1 / some of 2 on inferno, I use a very similar build.


Very similar, I really dont like the idea of having a pet with me meele DH build though, so I opted to use the traps. Makes for an easy escape (if needed) and bait the trap rune just helps with the damage on my normal attack, however ive been debating / testing out the use of the jagged spikes rune.

Since im using traps I replaced sharp shooter because I felt like it made my damage too much of a burst feel and not enough constant so I swapped it for Cull of the Weak.

Only reason i dont use vault is because my meele build is for personal injoyment not for when i try to push further into more difficult territory, and Vault gives me too much of a kiting feel so I replaced it with Shuriken cloud. I can keep it up practiacally all the time, not sure if it procs my LoH anymore but its still nice for destroying barrels withour costing a lot of hatred.

Here is a link to my DH, although I'll probably have my ranged gear on to be a kiting cannon on farming somewere on MP 2-4 :p
