For all the ppl who thinks its not possible to get to high dps without manticore i made a video to show that a glasscanon using windforce is totally beast. I farm mp 7 solo and i never die. My stats are in the description

As a WF lover, I watched the vid.
I have to say, your glass cannon kiting skills are very good. You would have done extremely well pre-1.03 when the game was about not being hit at all.
That being said.
1. Your DPS is buffed due to steady aim. While I agree that SA works very well with a WF, you didn't seem to take advantage of it. Many many times in the vid you had a monster within 10 yards... so lets drop that DPS down a bit (or why don't u throw on SS too^^).
2. You didn't seem to really benefit from the knockback. The knockback allows for a "stand and deliver" style of play, every second you are kiting, you aren't doing any DPS, nor knocking anyone back. Additionally, cinder arrow is your friend... it has a double proc of KB (as well as for nightstalker).
3. Based on the above, how did using a WF help your build? An equally powerful calamity would have given you more DPS, the MOD proc and more attacks between kites... and better discpline from NS. You had either SS/Gloom up 95% of the time, so you didn't benefit from the LS on WF. Using a manticore probably would have given you more DPS... though the slow attack speed is a real mission between kites.
Gloom, SS, native LS on WF.
That should cover it....

1- My dps is still 238k totally unbuff http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/flight-1109/Jane/1722165
2-I dont see that kiting ure talking about, when i move its to get away from mortar or arcane, i also click so quick that i always attack while moving so im not losing dps there. You can see the knockback a lot of places 2:46 is an example
3-I prefer to windforce over calamity because of the knockback that i use a lot (idk why u dont see it) and lol pay me to use manticore cuz i will never use that slow !@# xbow
My build is fun to play, u get challenges, its quick, u have to be aware and do many things at the same time. If u wanna eat ur bag of chips while playing mehhh yeah that might not be a nice build for u
Wow, very impressed with your glass canon build.
Great micro side-stepping, maybe you should try hardcore.
Something i could never do if i had the same gear set.
Only thing is that when farming elites, steady aim passive wasn't up around half the time with all these other mobs around you.
That's why i don't use steady aim much in high MP.
Side note, the background music rocks in the video, 1080p ftw!
