I think a huge number of DH still do face tanking at higher mp. I know I do. Even still works great with increased mob density in PTR.

A few notes on spike traps.

Grim reaper is a bad rune, 12% split between dozens of mobs is not much. But mostly because Mortal Enemy is much stronger, especially with such a good and hatred hungry spender as EB. Even against 2 targets, which is the most favourable comparison for reaper, ME gives you more dps.

Bat companion is a major dps skill, about as good as archery.

Vengeance is a major dps skill, better than archery for almost all Manticore users. It also increases survivability.

Full nat's+soj with preparation is a viable alternative.

To say that a pro of Calamity is that it reclaims resources faster is a bit misleading. For disc, no doubt. For hatred, it literally fills your hatred bar faster, but weaker hatred efficiency is actually one of its biggest cons. The value of each point of hatred is lower when each attack does less damage. With exactly the same dps otherwise, calamity spends ~45% more hatred to do the same damage. It gains hatred from generators 45% faster too, but it doesn't generate hatred from passive regen 45% faster. Resulting in a higher cost than replenishment relative to manticore.

disc can be converted to hatred and its viable alternative for calamity users but with high CC 2h build(70-80) same combo will work better than with 1h.

I was referring primarily to discipline regeneration Josef. But yes, you're correct. The hatred spending ratio for Calamity is much higher than slower Manticore.

Yeah I thought you meant that too, but it could be misinterpreted, that's why I made sure to explain it in as much detail as possible to avoid even more confusion :)
