Diablo® III

suggestions for my DH plz

so im looking at my DH
i got good crit, crit dmg and atk spd all on a budget...
with some tankiness... i can take a hit

do i just need to sac some crit dmg on gloves from 40 to 30 and get 200 dex? and 200 dex boots? and then im golden?

i have a 6% helm sitting in my stash as well as a 6% 100 dex bracers...
how do other DH's fair at 30-40k hp with no resists and 800 more dex? die in two hits or less?

i can take 3-5 direct hits from hulking phasebeasts in 1.04

all constructive comments welcome :)

You have decent gear, but its buffing a mundane bow.

A crossbow 1400+ dps range should be a major improvement. Don't be afraid to loose some vitality if necessary, a decent Dead Man's quiver will cover it.

Replacing those 2 items (bow/quiver) will offer more dps and you can maintain you ehp.

This is quite a good balanced DH. I wonder how you still can't get past act 3?

It's a sad state of affairs when his dps and gear isn't enough for act 3. I have the same problem. While other characters like WD can solo act 3, 4, Diablo with lesser gear and DPS. The DH needs major help unless you have really good gear compared to other classes. It's sad they nerfed the 1.05 Boar companion today.

I see you keep trolling not only here but also somewhere in this forum. Anyway, why don't you look at my dps and say 'got no dps' to me again.

EDIT: I now remember you were the world class DH. lol...

@Onibaku:

You have a pretty decent DH, and should definitely be able to farm act 3 without much trouble. I think the main issue is your build. You have 2.5 (the half i count from evasive fire backflip) discipline spenders, and only +8 max discipline. The only discipline regen you have is night stalker passive, but it does not actually proc that much. You also have 2 hatred generators which is a bit unnecessary.

I suggest you pick one hatred generator, and one hatred spender that has AOE (impale does not especially with the rune you chose). Give elemental arrow ball lightening rune a try. Smoke screen try out lingering fog for 50% longer invulnerability. for prep rune, you have enough life and all res i think, so you can try backup plan or focused mind. as for passives, archery is a good dps boost, and tactical advantage is good for survivability. i would suggest you try out perfectionist instead of night stalker.

in terms of gear try to get more crit dmg, because your crit chance is good so each additional crit dmg will give you a good dps boost. also try to get some more +disc on gear, get to at least 45 or so.

you definitely have the gear to farm act 3 comfortably, just shuffle your skills around a bit. of course gear will help, but give your defense and dps act 3 should not be a problem at all (i was farming act 3 with around the same dps and much less hp/allres back on 1.03, which was before they nerfed monster dmg too). good luck!

@OP, you have a decent DH already

But dont be afraid to drop some vit for more DPS.
And yeah I agreed with Jd007, I believe that your build is more of the issue here.

Not having Steady Aim is cutting your dps by 20% right there.

Just saying.

Edit: and you can drop quite a bit of Vit safely and swap it for CC.

it is very difficult to get the right balance of DPS, Resit all, CC, Dex, CD
IM still working on my character everyday

I group farm act 3 everyday, and have found if im around 400-500 resist all, its helps keep me alive, anything less then that, you struggle even with Gloom and or hungering arrow with bounty hunter for those reflect mobs.

plus of course my DPS helps clear areas quickly, they just MELT in front of my eyes...lol

Probably the thing that has helped me the most is using this DPS calculator

I spent 1.5 mil and increased my DPS by 10K the first day I used it. It can seriously keep you from wasting money on items purchased.
