I got a Stormshield for my old Tank DH but they took off LOH procs on traps.. Is this back yet!?.. or is there a replacement build?
So you would recommend scratching LOH go purely crit% crit dmg with gloom, sharpshooter, nighstalker (for discipline recharge) and archery with shuriken cloud and chains? Is it possible to be high dps while fighting hand to hand such as the wiz wicked wind freeze/crystallize/chain bomb?
01/29/2013 05:05 PMPosted by tekkazeroxWhile I agree that Perma-Gloom is better than LOH getting LOH on gear is not terrible especially if you want to abuse it and LS with Shuriken Storm and Chain of Torment. I just would not get it on your weapon unless you are planning on dual-wielding (which is not great right now). Having an emerald inside a socket and base critical damage is much better on a weapon whether it be a Manticore or Calamity. Best places if you want LOH is getting it on your jewelry. I am still on the fence with my Blackthorne's myself.
There are a lot of replacement builds. All of them revolve around keeping up gloom at nearly 100% in order to fully mitigate damage you receive. I have one such spec on my DH currently.
LoH is a thing of the past bro, that is for low DPS players or leveling, not for high MP farming in my opinion. Life Steal via Shadow Power Gloom is more than enough for nearly any situation

A build will only bring you so far if your gear is woefully underpowered. 125k dps is very low. You can get an entire gear set to do mid level MPs on AH without much effort for under 75m and that's a completely scratch set. I know because I did it for a player the other day using buyout prices mid week. It as a total of 90m including flawless star gems. If you snipe bids youcan prob have 30% off that total
It's expensive when you try to get AR on everything. Feel free to take a look at my current gear and make suggestions. I would prefer to keep my attack speed high. I have 30M to spend.

look at my gear, I'm at 266 AR. I can tank MP10, but no, I'm not so stupid or lazy as to sit in arcane beams, Frost bombs, desecrate, or molten trails. Smoke Screen is a great emergency savior, works perfectly.
I'm loving the setup I have... I'm actually farming MP8 very efficiently, minimal deaths (only to freakin
falling maniacs lol)
I can do MP10 very easily too, but it just takes alot longer to kill elites.
M4D-Mortal enemy is key as well as fast asp. I got about 2.90 asp with my calamity + enchantress.
Hatred regen is amazing. Elites are usually perma stunned with grenades
Cluster arrow does amazingly quick dps and very spammable once you get setup properly.
Still looking for cluster arrow reduction gear to get even better with this build i got goin
smokescreen's poison gas also does wonderful dps + procs LS from gloom and generates hatred on Mortal enemy marked mobs.
Night stalker with nearly 3asp and 52 CC keeps me fueled at all times for disc.
Chain of Torment also procs LS from gloom and generates hatred on marked target.
65k hp + 500AR gives me plenty of survivability.
200k dps is plenty for rolling through mobs.
I'm loving my tank build, don't plan to ever change this (might make a few modifcations, like passives or bringing back the shuriken cloud)
overall, my current build is a blast.
Stuns everything so even ranged elites aren't that big of an issue.
02/03/2013 07:06 PMPosted by SkiTzI'm sure you can't "tank" MP10 with the literal definition of tank.. survive? sure. thats whats DHs do =p, but don't say you tank MP10 with 266 AR... thats hard to believe.. you should only be able to take 2-3 hits from elites at that AR level
