Diablo® III

Demon Hunter not cutting it on Hell Mode

I'm lvl 52
My DMG is 5974
my armor is 1814
and I am used a bow with 294 DPG

Barely on act one, and I'm getting my butt kicked. What. The Heck.

What armor should I be looking at and what minimum Dexterity should I have on my amor & Ect? This is getting ridiculous

What build are you running?

your DMG is very low. I'm lvl 51 on the Act IV of Nightmare and have 9215 DPS.

Check your skills. Hell mode is easily doable as a Demon Hunter. Hell mode is where some skills start to lose their viability though.

Any recommended weapons?
Recommended stats on armor?

Some of your abilities are really bad. Use hungering arrow with shatter / devouring, impale for single target, what's the power of shadow power and gloom if you're using smokescreen? Throw in an AoE damage ability like multishot. Pick up preparation for extra discipline (read: more smoke screens). Also, upgrade your gear.

Your build is kind of bad.

Try something like;

What's the minimum dexterity / vitality I should have on my armor? I have a pretty good bow & quiver.

All of my armor has at least 90 Dexterity, but not that much vitality.

Lol I'm a level 56 DH and I have 14k DMG in the later part of act 2 and I'm still dying a lot. I'm at a total of 1.25k dex.

need more dmg. buy some better gear off the AH. i'm 53 and am right at 10k dmg.

I just discovered that the evasive fire rune that makes you shoot three arrows is REALLY strong, try using that.

not sure why you're having that much trouble. I'm 52 using 2 hand bows and my dps is 5759 without sharpshooter up, 11,498 with it at 100%. I use Templar as my companion, cull the weak, sharpshooter and archery as my passives, elemental arrow with frost rune as my primary attack because it one shots alot of stuff and snares almost the whole screen, grenades with tinkerer rune to build hatred when I need it as my secondary, caltrops with torturous ground for oh !@#$ moments, smoke screen with lingering fog, preparation with battle scars and ferret companion for the hell of it. My build isn't quite the cookie cutter build, and I'm sure people would find plenty of fault with it but it works for me.
