Diablo® III

Using a one handed sword/blunt weapon.

Maybe I'm confused, but is there a way to use a sword/shield setup with the DH? I've tried, but my default left click skill, that I cannot change to "no skill", is always set for a ranged weapon. I've tried to equip a sword and it tells me that I can't due to the skill.

So, how do I get around this, what if I don't want a Hatred Generating ranged skill as my default left click attack?

Go to Account options and check the "elective mode" checkbox. Also i think you can lookup in "keybindings" what the regular attack is, i havnt bothered.

I heard about the elective thing, I'll do that when I get home. Also in the keybindings, the only two settings that you CANNOT change are the left/right mouse buttons.

You can't make an additional button for melee and the only thing you can't change about left/right click is the fact that it is bound to those keys. Just turn on elective mode and drag your left click ability off the bar and you'll be able to auto attack instead. I wouldn't recommend it though.

So you're saying that it is pointless to use anything but a ranged weapon as a DH? I agree with that, but I was curious if you were able to or not.

I just realized you can dual wield Cross Bows, so I'll be checking that out when I get home. At least with Elective turned on, I can use two skills that regen Hate.

You can dual wield '1-handed crossbows', but not all crossbows are 1-handed.

Just wanted to make sure you don't get confused.

I started a thread about Assassin style DH

Grenades can actually generate hatred without a bow, and lots of skills seem to focus on up-close combat.

Cold weapons' slow effect might also count for Cull the Weak.
