Afaik this isn't true? The raven chooses his own targets while the familiar allways shoots at yours. And as far as i've seen the attack speed of my raven is horrible slow.

60%* sorry - yeah, but what else to pick in a bossfight? you mostly dont need a snare, you need dps a generator a spender, you need SC, you need prep, you need mark - one last slot left

lol not even close

Maybe you don't realize what you're saying, but it sounds like you're saying the raven increases your dps by 30%

Well on diablo, for example, the raven wont do !@#$ cos i hardly ever have him in sight ;-). I'd rather have vault or caltrops.

I guess it depends alot on what you're doing and what your path towards the boss is. I usually run:

Hungering arrow
Elemental arrow
Smoke screen
vault
random (caltrops when farming, sometimes mark on hard bosses or raven depending on my mood really)
prep

My experience with raven is not that good tho, it adds alot of hatred gen wich is good, on bosses the generation from mark is better tho

do you guys know how set bonuses work in this game? for example if i get two natalya's items will i get that 7% crit chance? and if i get 3 of those items, will i get the 130 dex in addition to the 7% crit chance?

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.


I'm a celebrity! *blush*

Hey Terror,

I like what you are offering in DH gear/farming suggestions. My question to you is what is the idea group to farm act 4.

2 barbs? 1 monk? and 1 DPS DH?

i just read your post, but i don't read anything after that but i have a question for you:
they nerfed smokescreen in the last patch, even with this nerf, you will keep this setup up for her?

Hey Guys

I hardly ever use smoked screen as a way of Invun, and turreting other then against Mortar Mobs when they stop moving towards me to cast Mortar.

The nerf did not really effect me at all, i find 1.5 second enough and i hardly chain two together.

SS for me is to prevent getting hit when they do get right next to me, and with Tactical Advantage running more then 1 screen away quickly.

I have kept this spec for awhile now.

In regards to Companions, i like the functionality of the bird, but i just hate how it goes and randomly attacks targets. I could also swear when the bird crits someone, i lose my SS stacks? not 100% sure, but that thought alone made me not use it on anything other then bosses. Now days i hardly ever do a boss with 0 stacks therefore i hardly ever use it.

With fast IAS and Mortal Enemy i find it enough for most mobs, and simple hungering arrow is enough for most white mobs.

We generally use a Monk to tank and pull for us, we have 1-2 demon hunter, the last person can be anyone that is online and wants to do the run.

We have yet to try out Act 4 as 4 man, as it just doesnt seem efficient enough for us, sure it may drop better loot (marginally) but the time it takes, and the way the main bosses are chained doesnt allow for a much better run.

Hey Terror, I remember reading your post the other day.

I'd very much like to tag along on one of your farm runs if ever possible. Solo farming gets old and all my friends are playing HC.

Geared out DH with a 220% MF set and a quick finger to swap right before a boss/mob dies.

Did you check your DPS lately Terror? The Boj Anglers are currently bugged and the attack speed does NOT register for your char. If this is the case for you then your DPS is actually alot higher than you mention.

I just unloaded 3 mil on the boots to replace a 224 dex pair I had only to see my DPS drop drastically due to the attack speed not working on them.

This is game breaking and needs to be fixed asap!

Is the atk spd on your boj anglers working? Mine sure isn't... damn.

any idea if they are gonna fix it in 1.03?

*edit*
looks like its bugged for everyone. Damnnn
