Demon Hunter

Jul 12, 2012 Inferno Critique My DH is using 2x Hand XBows, gearing strategy has been trying to maximize Dex, Health (either via Vit or +Life%), All Resist and +Crit damage!Te!YcYYcc This is my current build. I don't have a 3rd passive selected, because I actually can't find one I like. Any suggestions? I know my build doesn't have SS or Prep, but it has been working out well for me (just Act I so far, which I know is not the same as Act II). I have Impale handy when I want to kill something specific (i.e. Treasure Goblins) instead of CA-ing an area. Gloom has been working out for me pretty well, and Vault is handy for most things. Jailer/Molten/Mortor/Shielding combos suck...but I am fairly certain that combo always sucks. So, ideas for my 3rd passive, or other forms of critique?Verdash0 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 Looking for farming buddy I am looking for a DH farming buddy with high DPS and decent survivability. I am a tank DH and can tank all of act 3. I can stand still for ghom, cydea, and azmodan and most eleites(must move for arcane in act 3). I can stand still against all act 2 eleites (even arcane frozen) I have high dps for a tank build (20k in act 2 and ~13k in Act 3) Keep in mind that my 13k dps is hitting like 2-3 times each second. will be logging in in about 3hrs. leave message here if interested.

Jul 12, 2012 gear and stats question Can someone tell me what their using to get to up to 50-100K DPS without SS? People always post their builds. Builds are nice but I really like to know what the stats are on armor and such. It would certainly help me a lot i think. I have a bow that does 1105 DPS with 62% crit damage. And I can't afford a 1100+ bow from the AH with the way inflation is going. Most of my armor pieces are between 140-200 Dex. Save for a ring or so. What are you guys using that gives you so much DPS without SS?Growingcow5 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 which quiver is better? So is it superior to just roll with the higher dex quiver and rather than the + ele/hunger % damage or vice versa? So say for example, with 2200 dex. which quiver is superior? A) 150 dex with +11% hunger arrow B) 200 dexGirlsGonWild3 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 if 10 Dex = 10% damage then why... Why should I care if a quiver has 10% damage to Elites or a 10% buff to Hungering Arrow? Why wouldnt I simply find a quiver that has 10 more dex? When does the extra 10% kick in? I've got a huge quiver conundrum and need to make some decisions. I'm leaning toward the higher dex quivers that have crit chance (or damage) and +x to Max Discipline. And because I still use Sharpshooter, I'm not so quick to demand the marginally higher dps that +/- 1% ASI gives. The slower shots give me a bit more time to recharge SS. The servers are down or I'd have some screenshots of the quivers. My basic play style is that of a half tank and half Sharpshooter crit machine. I don't really kite or shoot off-screen. I blast away with Lightning Balls (and watch the yellow crits light up the screen) and then hold my ground when the week enemies fire up my caltrops (which fire off my approx 900 LOH). It's a solid system that suits my play style. I generally have between 37k-43k life and routinely see normal hits between 8k-14k and crits between 25k and 60k. I easily solo act 1 for gold and am still making my way through Act 3.Otis9 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Why are so many ppl bad at playing DH? The DH I met in the public game, 80% of them are using 600-900 dps handxbow and quiver. I thought they didnt know you could equip 2-handed weapon with quiver but I was wrong. The whole story is like I need attack speed, my build is awesome (no elemental arrow, no cluster bomber,no smoke screen, yeah, vault is better than smoke screen, and no preperation) why I got owned in Act I on inferno? cry here and ask for difficulty nerf.Orpheus2 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 Keep dying: Hell Act II!! Hey all, Hope you can help, pretty new at this, but im in Hell mode and now in Act II and i keep dying in 1 second. No matter which monster attacts, i die. Strength: 280 Dexterity: 826 Intelligence: 208 Vitality: 695 Armor: 3249 DPS: 4574 And every resistance is somewhere between 50 and 120. I'm not too familiar with all the abreviations on here so whenever i read posts, i understand half of them (and first language is French, which doesnt help haha) SO....any help? Thanks!!!yannick7912 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 Act II!! I was wondering if anyone that is comfortably farming act 2 could possibly tell me your stats/spec. I complete Act one with ease, but I am having a very difficult time with act 2. I am trying to figure out why I am having such a hard time, as Act 1 is easymode now with my gear, but I get crushed in Act 2. Servers are down right now, but the best I recall, my stats are close to the following: 45k dps (without SS, around 86k with) using a 1k dps bow w/LaK ~40k hp no resists ( I don't think) 40% crit chance 150% crit damage (although it might be closer to 100) My build is the following:!YeT!YcZZYb Any help is appreciated! I want to keep on progressing!!Nokata4 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Which quiver is better? Okay I'm not sure which is better and need help comparing gear. Quiver #1: 149 armor, +58 dex & 7% gold find Quiver #2: 199 armor, +48 str, +5.5% Critical Hit chance I know neither of them are uber awesome, but a drop is a drop for me at this point. The ingame comparison shows I get higher protections and improved damage with the 2nd quiver, but I would think +58 dex would be better. Please help and thanks.Spiritrage11 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Stacking on hit effects? Hi All, I searched the forums and tried to find an answer to my question but didn't find any relevant posts, but I apologize in advance if this has been asked before. Does anyone know (or can anyone link) the theorycraft on how on-hit effects work? For example, if you had a crossbow/quiver/belt which all had the "Chance to Freeze Target" modifier, is it a matter of adding the percentages? Or is the percentage chance somehow multiplicative? To take an imaginary scenario, let's pretend you had two items and each had a 50% chance to freeze the target. Would you chance of freezing the target be 100%? Or are there two separate rolls such that the percent chance would only be 75%? I just want to theorycraft straight in mind before I start stacking any of these effects. Thanks!Gorganis3 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Need some DH advice Well after watching me play my barbarian for a month+, and making her identify my items, the misses has went ahead and bought her own account, and decided it would be easier to use my barbarian gear, and make me level a new class. So here i am :) I'm trying to get this guy to survive act 3, but every time i go for it, it feels like i just walked into the woods from Deliverance. Not a big fan of the MF gear swap, (nothing against those that do) so I've been trying to do this while having a good amount of MF. Current stats: base DPS: 31.6k (42.5k with archery, and steady active) Crit Chance: 35.5% Crit Damage: 150% (200% w/ archery) HP: 31.7k Resists: 370 minimum, Poison 482, phys 440 MF w/o follower/neph: 236% Build:!YXe!bbZZZc Gear: From what I've been reading, the resistances, and HP should be good enough, but the damage is low, 60k minimum from what i hear? Still seems i can bite it a bit too easy to the random fireballs in act 3, i was more concerned about the poison hand guys on the bridge though so i got poison up a bit more than the others. I also know having no life on hit, or life steal is a death sentence, but not sure how best to itemize the jewelry given the stats from armor, while still maintaining a MF above 225% base, decent crit numbers, and raising DPS simultaneously all the while staying within a 70m gold budget. It's really almost like there is a failed synergy in the set up, but i just can't see it. Some of the armor selections are weird because it's left over barb gear, helm of command for example. But between the helm, and quiver giving me over 200 vitality, it seems I'm locked in to those for now, and switching jewelry and the weapon would yield the most results, but i don't know, lol >.< I really appreciate any constructive criticism, just kinda needed someone to bounce ideas off of, and thank you in advance :)Nurgle2 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Critical Hit Chance increases automatically?! I don't know if there are others facing this problem but I am, and it has become a problem lately, the minute I join a game my critical hit chance increases automatically until it reaches 100% and by then I have like 80k dps, I know that I only have half the damage. This also provides wrong stats of items, I recently bought an armor with the same dexterity I had before, but more resistance, and still when I move my mouse over it, it says 5k more dps. I thought my critical hit chance was increasing due to barbarians' warcry skill, but I created my own game to check it out and it was the same. Also, sometimes the menus don't work either, it has happened a lot of times that I've got stuck with someone who's been away from his keyboard a long time and when the group has decided to kick that player out, either the "vote kick" button is grey or even if you can click on it, nothing happens.Light5 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Some advice please. Hey guys, I know that this post is going to make me seem like a really big noob, and well I guess that just means I am :D I have built my DH up til now and haven't ran into any trouble. But act 2 in inferno onwards I am getting my !@# whopped. And no it isn't from everything, but just from a few mobs. My biggest problem, is elites with Reflect(if its reflect+HP T_T). I deal decent dmg, but that doesn't help at all. Sometimes I find myself dying from one shot that hits all in the pack! Setting traps is like turning on a tap and watching my HP run dry. all I can do is slow, retreat, spam while in smoke screen, rinse and repeat. I thought maybe if i started getting more vit it would help, but it hasn't actually helped as much for these reflect mobs... Should I be getting more armor? More res? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guy.Keiran4 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 [SUGGESTION] [SKILL] Buffing Strafe Possibly THE most underused skill for the demon hunter at the moment. The abysmal damage compared to other staple hatred dumping skills, the slowed movement speed that makes it unusable for kiting, and the inability to focus fire makes it a poor substitute for Elemental Arrow, Cluster Arrow, Spike Traps or the other more commonly used skills. So here's what strafe does currently: Strafe Archery Cost: 15 Hatred Shoot at random nearby enemies for 120% weapon damage while moving at 65% of normal movement speed. Skill Runes Level Skill Rune 24 ----- Equilibrium: Increases your attack speed by 20% when using Strafe. 29 ----- Drifting Shadow: Movement speed increased to 100% of normal running speed while strafing. 37 ----- Stinging Steel: Throw out knives rather than arrows that do an extra 100% damage on successful Critical Hits. 50 ----- Rocket Storm: In addition to regular firing, fire off homing rockets for 60% weapon damage as Fire. 56 ----- Demolition: Throw out bouncy grenades that explode for 144% weapon damage to targets within 9 yards. So here are the main weaknesses of Strafe: 1. Low Damage 2. Random Targets 3. Reduced movement speed What can we do to make this skill better?MasterSpark4 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 LF: Low money / Solo / Hell Mode Build My friend and diablo partner just got a new job which effectively removed all of his play time so I'm looking for a build that I can use to get through Hell mode. I have roughly 13k DPS with SS and ~24k health I believe. I'm using Ball Lightning as my main damage dealer and bat, caltrops, and bomb that places 3 at once. In act one I could pretty much 1 hit groups of trash by leading them into the caltrop / bomb. Elites I can kite relatively easily depending on their abilities but certain ones can be really hard. Bosses are out of the question. I just started act two and am already getting destroyed by trash. Any tips on builds would be greatly appreciated.Danielson9 Jul 12, 2012

Advice needed 40K HP, 500 resist all 5200 Armor 37 DPS no SS 12% move speed The fast elite leapers in Act 3 of inferno butchers me, I can’t out run them and I definitely can’t tank them straight up.

Kited them back to the entrance but they were so fast that they avoided half of the caltrops that I dropped. Trying to get to the main elite while trying to dodge (avoid the clones) and not get hit was insane. Anyone got some good tactics?
