Once you ask for 'The Best', your asking for trouble lol.

'The best' farming spec is the one that you feel most comfortable with. I personally find it very comfortable to switch to 13 gear peices while channelling rapid fire because I think this is 'The best' for me. Everyone else would probably disagree lol.

Look at some of the sticky notes ^.^

I don't think words "fun build" and MP10 go hand in hand. Mobs have so much HP that most MP10 builds are facetanking or immobilizing. But for ~mp3-4, I found L4N CA->LfB to be insanely fun.

I was trying a new facetanking build before I got para 100 and it's the best build I've ever used it.

Hard to Die Build:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#WdgQiV!fXe!ZcYaaZ

Gameplay:

1st - Gloom and Bola Shot
2nd - 2 Spike traps
3rd - 1 Ball lightning
4th - If you have a pack of monsters use Vault ToC crossing over all monsters.

So basically you use gloom to have the life steal and reduce the dmg while shooting bola to stun enemies while placing the traps.
Ball ligthning will help to keep up with your life steal and disc regeneration when you have huge packs making your life and disc always be full.
Vault to make the monsters like Savage Bulls etc... to lose their aiming at you and also ToC crits and deal dmg so you are always dealing dmg regenerating life and disc all the time.
I use to do this when I use Vault, when I finish the movement I place one trap right away and use vault again coming back to the place I was before and another trap.

As soon as I find a good software to make a video I'll be posting how to play with that build.

Ok that was fast here it is the video. PS: I'm sorry for the lag but actually that is the way I usually play. http://youtu.be/6J9Od_9j9i0

I was switching from WD to DH and used the build in this guide:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9309641517

Only change i made was using Bola/Bitter Pill instead of MFD. My gear cost less than 100 mil total and i can farm MP8-9 with almost no deaths at a speed i would deem "efficient". If you had 500+ mil to spend, MP10 would be a joke with this build.

Mp10 "farming" will be tanky echo blast builds that give you the best kill speeds in general i think.

RF bombardment is great for the elites, but maybe not for farming.

TBH i think mp10 farming for DH isnt the best way to do it... as Nyan says, its whatever is the most fun.

I could farm for 10 hours solid with a fun build. with a tanky build i think i may get tired after 3 hours. So given this i'd farm mp7 for 10 hours instead of 3 hours in mp10 :)

You snapshot more damage though, so you're already proving the point, in a huge way.

What is snapshot?

MP10 pretty much always involves facetanking. No way around that. It gets to be a grind, and I sometimes play a barb or WD or something to keep it interesting. I also like to switch my gear out for interesting stuff. For example, if you have a windforce or decent calamity, you could use that and try to come up with builds based around the strengths of certain armor and weapon combinations. DH is fun because it offers more variety (other than gloom) than the other classes as far as builds are concerned.

Here's the build:

Here's how it works:

What you need:
- LS weapon
- Tanking gear

it depends little bit, where exactly mp10 should be farmed.
in areas with lesser mob density (a3 towers, a2 va) there are more possible skill and weapon choices. areas with high mob density (a1 xp farm, a3 keeps) i would suggest enough ehp, sufficient dps (around 500k unbuffed). rapid fire bombardment is far superior to spike trap eb concerning kill speed, bola shot with last rune and manticore (scales best with rf)

Hey Nyan,

Little OT, but could you list what kind of equipment your switching to when starting to strafe/powerlevel and what you go back to after?

I'm wanting to try strafe to powerlevel myself through mp3 for a few, but dont know what to adjust or use as a buffing set.

Thanks

My gear is very very specific to what I do.

- Wear 'sharpshooter' gear.

While channelling straft, switch to crit chance gear.

The only reason why I can keep straft up indefinately is because of vengeance and l4n. Night stalker helps too.

I think I have more success with this.
