Yet, a well geared DH does fine; and a very well geared DH can own this game as well as anyone else.
LOL! this comment is so wrong i dont even know what to say. Even the top world DH says its pathetic how a much cheaper geared barb or monk out eDPS a DH by a ton. Gear isnt the issue its a fundamental flaw with the low damage multipliers of all the skills we have along with the inability to spam said skills like every other class along with the fact our skills cant be used together at the same time. We have to stop and use another then continue with another.
Thats why every top geared DH with over 400k unbuffed DPS myself included can just easily swap all our gear to a monk and buy a WKL/Rare/EF and destroy our DH's in eDPS. ALL the same gear except weapons lol and a nice rare weapon is a heck of a lot cheaper than a nice manticore.
Either way i doubt blizzard is going to buff DH's anywhere near the level they will and its kind of sad to hear in the interview that they made the mistake of nerfing and not giving us anything back early on in the games life cycle and the class that took the brunt of the nerfs was DH's. Meanwhile when the nerfs to procs from cm and ww and rltw came along blizzard chose to go softer since they learned nerfing down hardcore like they did DH's wasnt the way to go. Months later we are now seeing the effect of it, DH's have been overnerfed and we never received proper compensation.
Nerfing barbs or wiz will do nothing to help DH's when every other class in the game has incredible eDPS builds, barbs have hota spam ww and even rend now, monks drop bells all day and cyclone overawe, wizards just perma stunlock and spam 4 skills at once for tons of cumulative dps and even WD melt everything with cloud of bats. What they need to do is buff DH's because every other class in the game has received constant buffing while DH's have been hit with the nerf trains and never get anything in return. Rapid fire helped but its far from the end all solution.
