DH buffs..

there.. that should make sure the blues never sees this and pass it on to developers. Keeping the Buff to DH hopes alive.

@OP - you couldn't wait for patch 1.09 to post this?? or fudge some numbers??
I do 40-50 an hour easy on my monk lol dunno why people would use anything else. Tempest rush monks are the fastest DE farmers hands down I know some monks can get 50-60 almost that are better geared. Barbs too slow for DE farming and even at the highest gear levels a decent TR monk does just as good and better lol

Nice. Thought about doing one myself when this first came out, and up to a few weeks ago, but decided not to. I'm interested again after seeing you do it, so I may give it a shot this weekend. :D GJ.
Is this supporting a buff for DH?
@DiE

Thanks man. Give it a shot. :D

@Shdwflare

say wut?
no way we can beat a barb, but i will support you, go for it
I kinda prefer mp1 these days for de runs.

Sometimes I get 0 cleaning vota in mp8, which is very frustrating.

The elite don't like to drop them, but the gob, I think it has a higher rate as my chance off those are 50%.
personally i think it is the best to do mp8 for this
Its my first day / shot at it.

With some few tweaks should able to get about 20-30% better.

Them barbs are able to leap thru corners at the VOTA, not to mention WotB at all times = very fast run speed.
Wizzies can teleport too.

Anyways.. MP1/0 Strafe? with Vault, Tact, Vengeance and nice l4n?

King did say that.. MP8 gives higher DE's mainly due to the halved HP of elites in comparison with MP10..
I recorded an hour of VotA on MP8 DE farming. 35 in an hour from 8:31 - 9:31. I need to count how many elites+goblins I killed though. I skipped blazing guardians most the time as well.

Yes I did Nyan snapshotting. Nightmare, vortex, knockback are the affixes that hinder me, a hell lot.

If your interested to view, ill upload it. I messed up...alot in the video tho lol. I swear to god, at least 10-15% of the video is me rearranging my invo xD
Good stuff

We got the kill time covered, its the running from one pack to the next that's v difficult, we don't have sprint unlike them barbs.

less than mp5 will not cut it, the theoretical ave will be very low, you'll need to fly from one pack to another. We cann clear packs in less than 5 secs already at mp7.

I already gimped my DPS / EHP a lot by wearing full nats + disc quiver. I might try mp8 with a more DPS oriented quiver, maybe that might work.

Ill try mp8 next time, for sure theres an optimal MP for this.

Don't be lazy, count em! The number of packs is important :P

Thanks man, will work on better runs when I got some spare time.

I would like to encourage everyone to try this. I'm sure someone should be able to come up with better ideas on how to make this better.

The test is awesome since it doesn't rely on sheet or theories. I'm far from being the best DH, I'm sure there are lots out there who can give better numbers. Give it a shot guys!

You can, I can't. I can do mp5 in 5-15 sec, so I will do those, and with l4n, I should be able to keep a fast pace.

Let me try it tomorrow.

--- ---- ---
I will try this build, leave it here so everyone could have an idea.
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#PlgdVh!ZbT!c.cbZZ

6 cluster should finish off most elites.

--- ---- ---
I end up using this build
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#QWgdlk!ZbT!accc.a

but my de rate in mp5 is 1-2 per run. (only did 3 so far, takes about 4-5 min per run)
1 run1 7 GG
1 run2 7
2 run3 8 G

gana go back to mp8 again, but it takes a while for me to do it with my 180k unbuffed

--- ---- ---
MP8
2 run1 7 G
21 min die like 6 times (killed myself with reflect 3 times)

I guess I'm out of luck on de these days.
Thanks a lot Impreza for doing the challenge and motivating other DHs to try this.

The 1 hour demonic essence farming challenge (VotA elites)
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8568378716

Also, if you don´t feel like hunting elites these days, you may as well try the following challenge:

The 1 hour Fields of Misery loot farming challenge (FoM trash)
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9309300922

Just give it a shot guys, as many as you want. You may find optimized builds for your class which may prove to be equal if not better than other classes. Or, if you don´t care about class comparison, make it a DH build comparison. If you don´t care about such stuff, just go and find your own most efficient way to farm essences (loot).

Note that when the DE challenge started, initial Barb results were far far behind Monks but because certain Barbs didn´t give up and were competitive between each other/between classes, they were able to achieve comparable, if not outright better results than even Monks.
VOTA DE challenge is nice and reminds me of BLKDRGN's thread from 3 months ago:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8568989563?page=1

His time with 185K monk on MP7 was under 3 min. Best posted Vid from mystical was around 3:30 (with spiketraps) - but they both skipped 1 pack I think.

With 6 Packs and skipping the trash in a run using bombardment (+full nat, soj, over 300K DPS, enough ehp and I go with vengeance) its not that difficult to make the run in under 4 min. TA and tumble are must have of course.

Blazing guardians are annoying though;-)

Edit: @ Impreza 7 Packs in 4 min average over an hour is really nice for DH - I need more dex :-/
I tried some casual VOTA runs without recording using my standard Strafe / Rapid Fire build without movement skills or tactical advantage.

To my surprise, I averaged 102 E + G on MP7. I'd forgotten how fast it is to kill stuff on MP7. :) When I have some time, I'm going to try vault and legacy nats and see how quickly this goes.
1 hour mp8 vota with 93 total looks like....Need to try again looks like lol
