I went with a 1h setup quite some time ago from a dual socket manti. Even though I initially lost close to 60k dps doing so I was very surprised I killed faster than before due to higher aps and allowing more tankability.
I, myself like the 1 1h xbow + quiver to keep CC as high as possible with my gear and the hatred regen on the calamity + quiver gives me 2.5 hatred/sec in addition to standard hatred regen we have allowing me to use hatred spenders more often.
Many/Most of us use the Archery Passive which automatically gives a 1h user a 10% CC. Together with my quiver I gain a total of 19.5% CC from just these 2 items.
One of the main reasons I went with a quiver over DW is because of what the quiver can offer me. It offers me good dex. It offers me good vit. It offers me higher ASI than running DW and also adds more to my hatred regen.
I went last night and found a nice Danetta spite bow with 1031 DPS, 192 dex, 92+ CD on it and OS and did a comparison on running a DW setup against my current setup.
Swapping out the quiver for the Spite bow (with a 100% CD Gem in the socket) the stats showed I'd gain 3,926.88 dps. In ways this makes sense because I was gaining 192% CD from the spite but was losing 9.5% CC, 107 Dex, 240 vit and 1.22 hatred regen.
Now I don't have this spite bow for real world comparison. I can only give you the calculations the site gave me regarding the numbers. While I gained 3.9k dps swapping out the quiver for another 1h bow I found where I began to suffer was with EHP primarily due to the loss of vit but also loss of dex factors into into the DODGE ehp.
My HP went from 73.7k HP to 60.8k HP (loss of 12,852 or 17%).
My base EHP shows I go from 459.1k to 379k (loss of 80,084.74 or 17%).
My EHP w/dodge shows I would go from 901.6k to 729k (loss of 172,595.25 or 19%).
From my perspective and how my build is, Moving over to a DW scenario does give me little more dps with a decent 1h bow with the added CD but every other stat suffers from this.
I do like my surivivability and do not feel the cost of dps warrants me to change over to a DW for some additional gain in DPS (even it was a 10k increase) to suffer 17%-19% survivability stats.
The other reason I do like the dual combination, eluded to up above with the stats, is the 2.5 hatred/sec. This coupled with the standard regen is great and allows the hatred to refill in quick order when running to the next target.
I like the calamity in particular over the other 1h bows due the MFD it has baked in. If you can get a MFD on a target (such as an elite) you now have an extra 12% Damage to that target. Normally for trash mobs the extra damage may not be that important with the MFD (unless you are playing higher MP Levels). However using the numbers above 12% MFD against a target is way more than 2% dps increase by DW. Even if I were to gain 10k dps as mentioned above that wouldn't even be 5% of my DPS and the baked in MFD from the calamity would still way outperform the DW.
Last reason I prefer the quiver over a 2nd bow are the CC and ASI numbers. In the DW scenario even though my dps grew 2% I lost 9.5% CC and lost 4.5% ASI. if the 4.5% ASI isn't what you would consider critical than we can certainly take that off the table. the 9.5% CC reduction drops me from 59.5% CC to 50.0% CC. with such modest gain on the DPS Side I do not believe the 2% DPS gain would more than offset a 9.5% reduction in CC. The lower your CC and the less Crits you do the harder it becomes for passives like NightStalker to really shine and keep the DISC regen up.
And as a "bonus" to using a calamity bow over other 1h bows is MFD stacks. If your hit triggers the MFD on a target you can also target them with MFD from the skillbar and you now gain 24% more damage on the target. While that is a side-note and/or topic I still felt it was at least noteworthy. Other 1h bows such as spite come I think with +DISC which is very beneficial if you need disc. Danetta revenge bows come with LoH ... and so on and so forth. each bow has strengths and weaknesses.
In the end these are the primary reasons I've chosen the bow and quiver I have. It allows me to perma-gloom while attacking mobs/elites and having that ability to perma-gloom against them allows me to stay planted and go melee on them rather than run and kite effectively letting me kill much faster as there is no downtime in attacking when you don't have to move. :)
