Posted by Borat
pretty sure that's hands down devouring arrow, in terms of single target
but bola maybe more consistent in general cuz you kinda need a lil AoE in ubers anyway...
2) which hatred using skill do you think gives the best dmg per hatred (not damage per second as in the first question).
-i would guess it comes down to echoing blast vs. cluster bombs vs. not even sure what else, what do you think?
not sure how accurate my math is... but here we go
In 1.0.5 they drastically reformatted the first skill rune of spike trap. Prior to this the rune was "bandolier" which read - increase the maximum number of traps that can be out simultaneously to 6. Now the rune is "echoing blast" which reads - your spike traps can explode up to 3 times, dealing 275% damage.
So Spike trap
now hits for 275% dmg 3x's for 30 hatred, so that's 825% dmg for 30 hatred or 27% dmg per hatred spent.
Compare that to cluster arrow you have Loaded For Bear
which (assuming every rogue bomb lands) is 304% dmg + (100% x 4) = 704% dmg for 50 hatred or 14% dmg per hatred spent
. (even with grenadier its still only 18% dmg per hatred spent) Now compare this to cluster arrow with Cluster Bomb
which (assuming you line up the cluster arrow perfectly, such that the three bombs hit the same target) is 230% x 3 = 690% dmg for 50 hatred or 14% dmg per hatred spent
(and with grenadier its only 17% dmg per hatred spent)
So i think cluster arrow in best case scenario is half as efficient as spike trap in terms to dmg per hatred spent, because at this rate you would need 6 cluster bombs to hit a single target, and im pretty sure that doesn't happen
correct me where im wrong :)
