[GUIDE] Multi-Strafe Gameplay + Build Videos

  • #1
    I'm back with another guide! If you missed my last guide for a Thunderstrike Barbarian, you can find it here:


    This build uses Suppression Fire and Punishment to fuel MultiShot and Strafe for extended periods of time while Impale provides a source of single target burst damage for sturdier packs or bosses. The build is flexible in that it can handle ranged, melee or mobile combat with plenty of rune options for further specialization; all without relying on generators. This version focuses on the lower MP levels, but shifting to a strafe-centric build will afford you the survivability needed for handling higher MP levels.

    Feedback and/or criticism is welcomed and appreciated as always :D

    I feel like impale is clashing with multi, I'd rather reposition with strafe and let multi do all the aoe. Strafe does nice damage when you are down to 1-2 mobs, and multi is infinite for 3+. Dark cloud or sentry could easily take it's place. But I'm glad strafe/multi is getting some love, my favorite part about the build is that they are both pure weapon damage, cold soj literally slows everything around you.

    I use a somewhat similar build for slaying low MP monsters in high MF gear because my std engineer build has a large ramp-up time,
    The differences are the spenders: I only use strafe as spender (with bouncing grenades), chakram: shuriken cloud (10 hatred/120s) and rain: 20 beasts. (free)
    I do MP1 without trouble with 56k dps (and a cold SoJ), I haven't tried higher MP, though. The only problem I have is against jailer monsters, because while jailed, I can't do anything (I tried exchanging gloom with cloak, but it did not satisfy me).

    At times it can, but Sentry isn't as good at handling Jailer as Impale is.

    Yeah, as mentioned above, Impale is one of the few solid answers outside Vault/SS for handling Jailer with a DH

    Hi, first of all i want to say, THANK YOU! i've been looking for a strafe build for some time now, only trying a little myslef, but was kinda sticking with that i was comfortable with.
    Now you make this guide, and that made we wanna go home and try out some of it myself. Although i made a few changes, it's still your guide that inspired me to do it, and i'm having a blast spinning around, been playing my other build since paragon got implemented.
    Again, tyvm - and i wouldn't mind some feedback on what i've come up with.

    Maybe i should add - i've got no problems managing rescources, only if i've spent too much before i engage a pack, and that's kinda my own fault :)
    Regards DreamWalker

    Just got my DH to 60 tonight and just wondering if my gear will be good enough once I get into Inferno for Strafing?
