What is the average Strafe build?

I'm looking for the average strafe build, what spells/runes and passives?

Night Stalker, Vengeance passives are necessary. 7+ pickup radius necessary.

ShadowPower (blood moon) because you get the 25% lifesteal as long as you continue channeling.

Preparation to restore your hatred (along with health globes from vengeance).

Companion - use Bat if you don't have enough hatred regen. If you can get away with it use boar.

As for the strafe rune itself, I have found two working builds:

Strafe - Demolition & Rapid Fire
- here you use demolition for your AOE and rapid fire for your single target yellow elites. Demolition is incredibly annoying when trying to kill single mobs.

Strafe - Rocket Storm & Bola Shot
- here you use bola shot for AOE and strafe for single target / elite packs

The only other skill I have found that works well in tandem with strafe is Sentry. You could try out the chains sentry, or the rockets sentry, but they cost lots of hatred.

As for gear, just remember that the less attack speed, the less hatred you will spend while strafing.
