Grenades is the biggest damage dealer for strafe.... but you are right... the do miss especially if you are being chased. The solution is to not run away... run at them and stay on top of them.
Note - doing this means steady aim is useless.... but it does bring shuriken cloud into play (lose 20% damage gain 34%)
Also.... if you want max duration Hatred... consider a Rare xbow (with socket and CD of course) without any added attack speed. Go for the highest damage with the lowest attack speed. Manticore always has extra attack speed so you equivalent DPS will drain more Hatred.
Hmm, I'll try that. Seems the Strife build has a few degrees of freedom, which I like.
