I have 300k+ unbuffed dh, having 450allres/3600armor/55k life, I tank mp10 with ease using only sp. In my opinion, demon hunters are the best tanks because of high life steal and huge damage they deal.
Didn't want to make a new thread just for this, though it's pretty relevant to this discussion. Basically a comparison of DH and Monk eDPS using mostly the same gear. For people that play multiple classes, you probably already know this. For players that have only played the DH class, this may hurt a little.
Thank you for your effort TianZi. Hopefully the devs will pickup a DH and try it on higher MPs for themselves and compare it to other classes in similar gear and realize just how little DHs scale with MPs.
Still, I can't shake the notion that the only time we got a response was after the 1.0.8 notes came out, effectively pushing any kind of much needed buffs to high MP play to 1.0.9 or beyond. At the very least it leaves a bad aftertaste in my mouth since DHs have been trying to raise awareness to these issues for over 2 months now.
I was actually surprised that my Monk still killed the elite at pretty much the same rate as my DH when wearing a 22,500 gold skorn with basically no gem, and having to pull back several times to avoid Arcane beams since I didn't even have LS. It was actually both funny and sad at the same time.
It seems like Blizzard is paying a little more attention to the DH class now. We managed to get our first (since the release of the game) sticky threads on the US DH forums just a couple days ago.
Thank you TianZi for the effort you put linking that video. As a main (or mono) Demon Hunter, i noticed that my class is a lot slower compared to others. My gear isn't top-notch OMG OMG ELITE STUFF, but as soon as i reach Mp6+ there is a noticable lack of efficiency, so i just farm Mp4-5 to not die of boredom.
