Sup! I have a treat here for Ranged DH's! The Stone Cold Hunter I won't be doing a write up here, as I made a video tutorial that explains every single possible detail and everything you need to know about the build, gear, and execution. Personally I think it's best this way since playing ranged is a bit more complicated and simply just writing it out doesn't really help players try to execute it, as we all know there's a high margin for player error when attempting ranged play. Anyways, enjoy!
My skill set up used in all videos:
I'm obviously not expecting everyone to slot only 1 defensive skill and no disc regenerators. For most, I'd recommend something like this.
Come up with your own unique ways of building around the Stone Cold Hunter that will work for you!
Rough unedited but really cool mp 10 Vota run, full clear!
I actually recorded 3 vota runs, and decided to upload the one with the hardest affix combo's as well as show death (the only run I died in). Some really good moments in the video, as well as some awful mistakes on my end which ultimately lead to my death a few times, but I'm cool with that. It also shows what some range players can do in crazy situations and how to overcome them (including the mistakes). It was never my intent to create the perfect video for now, but I may do that in the future :D
Fastest E kill in video = 14 seconds
Longest E kill in video = The ones I died to :D
General Keeps 2 and Core run.
Stone Cold Hunter is not 2H xbow friendly. Impreza summarizes this well:
" You didn't really mention why its bad for slow 2hs / manti. Let me tell them anyways ; proccing the 15% CtW with cold ring requires constant damage from a fast weapon, moreover, the constant damage equals constant slow aswell which makes the low damage from entangling shot obsolete. "
