Diablo® III

Why can Wall of Light, Rend, and Haunt

go through walls? Isn't that what the barriers are for so we can seek shelter? As a DH, we have no real place to protect our squishy selves if all the attacks go through or around walls.

I'm not sure about Rend and Haunt but for Wall of Light...
y'know, it's Wall of Light.

I remember the good old days when Evasive Fire could go through anything.

Good point, they should fix that wall banging.

I know haunt does get stopped by a lot of the walls on the map. it does go by small objects though, if I managed to have my curser on my target when I launch it. also the haunt rune I use is specifically because it seems to me that it has better pathing than the others and its harder to see which helps hide my position.

also some walls have windows in them which you can shoot through with very precise aim

If your feelin jelly as a dh, some practice with hungering arrow will sooth your soul.

WD wallbangs with haunt all day. I've seen it countless times. They can even haunt you offscreen somehow. Nobody's talking about small objects for that matter. (although a simple rock or piece of wood can block a barbs jump or a wizards TP/Spell which is just plain ridiculous)

Really? I've been hit multiple times before. Maybe they fixed it. I do know that Wall of light does go though walls cause I was just standing there and half my life went down.

contrary to what you might believe, haunt does not actually go through walls, and you must have your target in sight and aimed at when you hit the button to fire it. what haunt does do is determine a hit or miss at the time of or shortly after it is fired, and will track the player during its travel animation if it is a hit. so If you are moving very fast it is sometimes possible to get hit by a clean shot of haunt then move behind a while while you are already hit and the animation will like like its hittin you behind a wall. Also most dh do not understand how vault works and effects their hitbox, which might add further confusion to this matter.

also I can assure you wd has many silly attacks the get stopped by the smallest shrub on the map

We did a test a while back with some random WD I met in a public game. I would be in the upper side of the wall and he downside. He had no problem haunting me. Even storm armor wouldn't reach him through this wall but his haunt would.
