But i didn't saw it at the time and the same question was examined by a fellow DH CoucouX.
What is the synergy between Buriza pierce and Hungering Arrow ? How far can we take benefit from it ? That's what i wanted to check and the results went far away my crazyests expectations.
Disclaimer : The Buriza build is one of the most complicated to pull, full of constraints to be viable in Inferno. Do not take this path if you are a fresh DH.

This lvl 42 weapon is usually used by the scoundrel. Its price at AH is scale on freeze chances wich is great for this build : we do not care about freeze chances, pierce chances is what we are looking for.
Must have a socket that's the only way to up its low damage. So one would have to search for at least 70% pierce chances, 14-15% dmg bonus and 4% AS.
Difference between DPS and eDPS is not usually that big in our class, in this build its huge. With a native 25k DPS one can pull over 500k critical hits.
How does it work ?
Buriza + Hungering Arrow (devouring) + Cull the Weak = Joy
That's the build basis, the main damage source. The other skills will change according MP and stuff.
Here's some very efficient builds :
Like all 2 handed crossbow, Buriza is slow. So one must seek to stack AS : 50% is just, 60% good, 70% is too much.
Bonuses for Hungering Arrow. Four pieces have such a bonus : DML, Skull Grasp, Mara's Kaleidoscope (weak for high MP) and SoJ (this one won't be useable above MP4-5).
Note : it's impossible to seek Hungering Arrow bonus in AH filter, so one should browse awhile.
Bolas bonus can be usefull too, on ring or quiver but not on both.
Last but not least : damages on rings and amulet ! Do not skip that part.
One more thing : this build makes huge damage but it takes time so you must have enough HP to handle a few shots. I'd say 60k HP is the confort zone. (Depend on MP of course i'm not going to enter EHP mechanic details.)
The more they are, the faster you kill
This Build is above all a coop multiplayer build with lots of AOE. Multitarget first, it looses efficiency on single target. I like the name Buriza Build but Mass murderer would also fit very well.
MP 7 -8 solo according stuff ( i haven't finish polish it yet, so MP 7 is the highest i manage for now) In coop - no limitation - it works like a charm in MP10.
The Buriza Build is a coop Build, the most efficient i've seen so far. Group will benefit from Mark of the Death, freeze and slow. Synergy with vortex Monk, Cold Blooded Wizz and Slam Dance WD is OP (Barb are not required ^^)
Critical hit record (EU server):
AshTag : 2 707 510 dmg
LordOfNothin : 1 422 019 dmg
AshTag : 1 406 903 dmg
LordOfNothin : 1 366 366 dmg
CoucouX : 752 216 dmg
huchE : 612 498 dmg
(All were made above MP5)
At this point of your reading, i guess some of you might be very skeptical.
So here's an example of damage an average 30k DPS Buriza user can make http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=756865821761.jpg
