(Recap) Diablo III - The Demon Hunter

  • #1

    Basic Information
    The Demon Hunter is your archetypal ranged killer. Attacking with both bows/crossbows and a mixture of gadgets, the Demon Hunter has spent time in the Dreadlands honing their skills. Demon Hunters are forged after the Denizens of Hell have destroyed everything else in their lives. Balancing their newly gained hatred with their discipline from training, the Demon Hunter attacks from afar and slips into the shadows when found.
    • Resource - Hatred and Discipline: Two separate pools split between tactical and aggressive attacks that auto-regenerate at different rates.
    • Skills - Ranged attacks, traps, shadow magic, and battle tactics that help fight from afar.
    • Abilities - Defensive, hunting, devices, and archery.
    • Stats - The stat that increases the Demon Hunter's damage is Dexterity.
    • Demon Hunter Unique Gear - Hand Crossbows, Cloacks (torso), Quivers (off-hand).
    • Lore - Bent on revenge for the havoc demons had wrecked upon their lives.

    Will probably be my first character. I really dig the fast and ranged playstyle with some shadowy stuff thrown in. Windforce and Buriza-Do Kyanon from D2 are back, too!

    This will definitely be my first character on May 15.
    Took 3 days of work and will play it for 3 days straight, 24hour marathon.

    Hmm. Anyone not care for the male model. The female model really stand out and If I'm planning on making 2 of each class, (yes 2 becuase I really want a different play experience for each class In example (Petless/summoning WD etc) the female models are much more appealing to the eyes.

    That said DH does look good but doesn't take the #1 slots that belongs to the WD.

    Demon Hunter is my favorite class, but Tier 15 looks like a angel. If you are a DEMON hunter, then you should not looks like an angel. ^_^ ^_^

    Why not? Angels hunt and kill demons all the time. In fact one might say they are a demon's natural predator.

    You are not a Demonic Hunter ( I mean lore wise yes this is also a little true) but technically you are primarily a Hunter who hunts demons.

    Yeah I mean I made a Demon Hunter that I dyed all of his armor with cloud white dye and have the angel wings, and it looks like a pretty badass Demon Hunter if I do say so myself xD
