Every class in this game would trade their best 2 abilities for smoke screen. It requires 12 discipline, so you can do it 4 times in a row, assuming you are not a retard who doesn't run two steps back between the tiny cooldown, then you can use preparation to do it 4 more times (%30 of the time you will be able to do it at least 4 more times because of the prep rune). There is no other class who can:
- Stand still and dps non stop for 16 seconds of ~25 seconds while having the best damage output in the game.
-Fail 8 times(stand still and get hit by a mob or stand on fire or stand still to get mortared, you choose) and get saved by an ability 8 times in ~25 seconds.
I think it's unfair to compare range with melee even though monk and barbarian classes are in an absolute horrible shape comparing to DH. So if you compare mitigation with wizard, they have diamond skin that absorbs 20k dmg every 15 seconds where they get one shot through. Force armor is useless now because act 3-4 mobs hit for ~70k, so there is no mitigation. WD can invis every 15 seconds and then die.
I personally don't want nerfs because DH nerfs won't make my gaming experience better but please stop pretending like you have it very hard, you get one shot and the class takes a lot of skill etc. There is no skill involved when one ability makes you immune 2/3 of an entire combat every single time. Just be happy you picked the best class by far.
Alright, over the past few days i decided i would play my demon hunter. I invested the same amount of gold on this demon hunter as my others.
My barbarian rick rolls everything, I have around 700 all resist and like 6 ls. All i have to do there is hit sprint run around and ww.
My witch doctor is pretty easy mode as well, sitting around 800 all resist and I have manajumas dagger for ls and i just spam zombie bears.
My demon hunter has 550 all resist and gets insta gibbed by mostly everything, waller mortar, any combo u want. Especially reflect damage health link, even with gloom up i kill myself instantly.
My monk has 900 all resist, 2800 life on hit, and can clear everything without any difficulty at all.
(i play on mp4 solo)
(i dont have a wizard)
Wait a minute, people still use smokescreen lool?
THat skill is utterly pointless.
1.5 secs of immortality is nothing.
SP-gloom is where the best defensive skill for DH is.
5 secs of close to immortality is much better tradeoff.
vault + gloom is the only 2 defensive skills you need.
Don't need prep either. Use nightstalker or get legacy nats. Don't waste a skill spot just for a disc refill.
