Yes are you are missing the fact that you haven't optimized your gear for the maximum benefit of Elemental Arrow. No offense but 22% to Elemental arrow out of a possible 56% is very low. I was at 47% but my Mara's Kaleidoscope was only 10% EA and had weak stats so I switched it out for a crafted amulet.
My goal is to attain 200k eDPS unbuffed and 50% to EA which is a 14% DML, 12% SoJ, 12% Skull Grasp, and 12% Mara. All of those with optimal DPS stats and a high +EA roll would make this very achievable.
I've been keeping up with this thread for a while now and thought it was interesting and looked fun, I used to use frost arrow wayyyy back in the first few months after the game came out and I loved it. Just happened to drop a 6/30 frostburn the otherday and I am thinking it's a sign! Hopefully over the next couple days I can get some of the other required gear together and give it a shot!
Switched over to a budget build 2 socket Manticore and I'm up to 145k eDPS unbuffed, I'm over 200k fully self-buffed and critting as high as 880k on elites. The slower attack speed doesn't bother me, but I do miss knockback a little.
I agree Moose, it's nice to have a goal. With even a small chunk of gold I can get this up to 250k buffed by swapping out my Magic Find slots for higher Dex rolls and more eHP, which I need desperately.

Hey OP, great thread!
I just dinged 60 on the DH and had some gear for this build already so I slapped it on her and pieced together the rest.
What do you think I should look for next gear wise? I'm sitting at 160k paper doll and 31% EA.
I'm loving the build by far and it's already made me decide to keep the DH as my main.
Keep up the great work!
hi guys, thanks for the input.
My 190k dps was with frost burn but with skull grasp, it will drop to about 150k dps. With the skull grasp, i will be at about 38% EA. I will go back and test with all the passives again and log out with all the gears
Which follower do you recommend?
06/11/2013 07:59 PMPosted by ApokHey guys. I posted earlier. I wasn't able to try this build on my monk. I rerolled a wizard and am currently lvl 53. How viable is this build on wizards?

Hey guys been a little busy but Im still running this :)
I find that MP8 is my current comfort zone with this build. I was thinking maybe nats helm w/ crit and nats boots will be better to land those essential crits. I plan on trying this out in the very near future, should be fun :O
As much as I love this build, in the current patch it probably wont beat RF builds in terms of pure killing speed and survivability (RF w/ manticore snapshot gloom fire forever at feet). What I do like about it though is it is better than alot of the ranged builds out there, has the potential to farm high MPs, and is extremely fun to play (at least to me)
Survivability is very kiting and disc dependent with this build, which does make it much more difficult to sustain as opposed to RF. With 48k hp 3713 armor and 350~400 resists and prep I have been able to clear MP8 quickly and reliably. I dont really run MP10. Certain elite affixes are a pain in the a** and im just not nearly as efficient as MP8. I prefer a much more stress free run. Still lookin to improve though. Will keep yall updated
