I might believe he bought gold because he's obviously carried by gear and pre nerf ss. "I don't stutter step I ss and turret with 300k dps" is horrid.
I solo cleared inferno with 7 k life and no resistance. 90k dps with sharpshooter fully stacked. The only champ pack I skipped in the entire game was invulnerable minion demon terrors. Yeah empty invulnerable bubbles chasing me down a walkway... f that. The vast majority of it post nerf and I didn't buy anything from the AH until azmodan ( i bought a 900 dps xbow with crit hit damage because I couldn't do enough dps to get the kill without an upgrade to my 550ish one. I got it for less than 900k)
This guys advice is horrible. Don't listen. DO NOT get vitality. DO NOT get resistance. DO NOT stand in one spot and turret. DO NOT get fast weapons. DO NOT buy gold and buy 30 million in gear. I have a fraction of this guys gear and kill everything he kills and probably more.
Take devouring arrow and nether tentacles. Take marked for death with the hatred regen rune. Take SS with lingering and prep with the chance to not trigger cooldown. The last slot is free to use as you see fit. I use vault in act 4 because I want to use it on diablo when i get 5 stacks up, but in other acts I used spike traps when I felt like I needed more front loaded dps on elites. I would recommend against fear arrows as NT is superior damage and with proper play it's not required. You'll feel a lot better having NT when u kill 5 elite packs and have a 5 stack heading into a boss fight.
This build works on every elite pack and every boss. Get 5 stacks - kill the boss. Get critical hit damage and boots WITH RUNSPEED and stutter step like a boss with a slow 2h crossbow. Stutter step in circles around ranged elites that throw fire or guys like soul lashers. If you do it right they miss every attack. If you get hit you failed and need to play better, it's that simple. NO VITALITY - NO RESISTANCE. If you're up against really tough elites - separate them from the minions by using ss (or dieing if you have to) so it's only 1 fast soul lasher with vortex and not 3-4. It's easy to immune vortex / whatever when it's one mob casting it at you. If all else fails pull them to a respawn point and gy zerg them.
That is how you play a DH. Stacking VIT and RES to make up for your sloppy play and lack of skill (and I use the term loosely because stutter stepping isn't hard, any bronze league sc2 player can do it) is bad. OP makes me think the DH whiners are right because it seems like anyone can finish inferno on a DH.
If you want a video example there's a guy named hihihi who posted his diablo kill video a couple days ago that illustrates how to play properly. It sure as !@#$ isn't by getting enough life to survive a hit from diablo on inferno.... rofl.
In summary this game is really easy. I'm gonna play barb next while all the baddies who can't dodge a 1.5 second swing with a giant overhead animation and flashing lights like mike tyson punchout are switching to DH.
Hey scrubs stop posting your dps with sharpshooter. It's a god awful passive and no one should use it.
05/31/2012 11:46 AMPosted by TerrorI also agree on your tactics, it is a play style i really wish i could actively use, but blizz doesnt believe that people down south needs a server, and the fact 300+ ms actually heavily impacts game play.
