I'm trying something out my HC DH with a 45.5% KB WF. Basically planting 3 sentries and spamming grenades to keep mobs away but it seems like grenades don't proc KB all the time. Several times when monsters get past my defenses.

Any idea how I may improve this?
Maybe Chains of Torment instead?

Prefer Aid station though because I get about 4500 regen together with the pig. I can take a couple bull charges now but I'd rather not.

just simply play shock collar - ball lighting combo, they rarely touch you ...

Try 3 Sentries. I think it'll work. :) CoTs ;)

It worked for me. LOL.

And.. use Shock Collar or Cluster Grenades.

Try also using Fear/KB Azkaranth.

nope, 24 secs to place all of them ... and you def don't want an elite-fight lasts longer than 15 secs ( at least for me), your running area is limited by therange of the chain ... and the mobs MUST BE in between you and the chain to be damaged ..

So, only the 3 useful is spitfire sentry for low mp, guardian shield & aid station( hp 85k+ ) ... Don't use CoT, i tried

Mine is a HC variation based on Mao's.

I tried Shock/Chain/Bounty and they're good but the problem is that they're still mostly a single target skill.

Scatter traps procs KB quite surprisingly well too but problem here is the delay and also hatred cost. I may try Chakram if I can get some -cost gear. I think Chakram has quite a good proc rate too? At least it did when I was using an EF/Azurewrath on my melee build.

Grenadier, the only way to go out with a bang on HC. Every one else gets a 2nd chance, we get a chance to avenge ourselves. Honestly, a fitting passive for a character driven by hatred. Stupid in terms of game play, clever in terms of story/character.

I tried the stun grenades a bit once on my SC DH. May give it a whirl again later.
I forgot to include Brooding in my passives in the original post, had to go to the doctors and was rushing. I may remove Custom Engineering instead.

I've sort of settled on this build for the time being.

The KB doesn't seem to proc very often but the stun works quite well.
Tried replacing custom engineering with numbing traps, and while useful, most of my damage still comes from my sentries and with 1 less sentry I lose 1/3 dps. I'll try swapping it with archery another time.
