1- D3 feels closer to Diablo (the original) than D2 ever did.
2- If you've ever created anything from scratch, you know that its not simple to reproduce something that already exists. Try making your dining room table from lumber. Good f'ing luck. Even if you're a carpenter, you know how precisely you have to do things in order to make something. Now try taking the idea behind that table, and making it more presentable/appealable/better. Now increase the complexity of the project by several orders of magnitude. There will be mistakes/bad ideas in such a large, complex project. These will be worked on. Blizzard has never released a product as we remember it. All of their games are crap (relatively speaking) when they are first released compared to when we stop playing them. Talk to me about how d3 and d2 compare after 3, 5 or 10 years and you might start to have ground to stand on.
3- I still get the "ooooh, christmas!" feeling when yellows drop. When they improve legendaries, that feeling will be even stronger should one drop.
4- So much irrational hatred. Take a chill pill, rub one out, and move on with your lives.

Point 2 does not make sense. Attack speed will always increase DPS--at any given time or situation.
Point 3 is also strange as it is hard to believe you can shoot 5 or 6 elemental arrows within the window of 1 second. Not realistic with current level of gear.
For his(her?) point 2, the point was that at a constant dps, a higher ASPD means more time shooting hungering arrows. This is because you spend your hatred faster shooting EA (or whatever your spender is), which means you're empty sooner, which means you have to refill sooner. +ASPD gear does increase your dps, but their may be a point where the faster spending of hatred results in less DPS over some period of time because you're spending more time using HA than you would be with less ASPD.
For point 3, its not that he fits in 6 shots from first hit to 1 second, its that he shoots six shots by the time the first one hits, so all the ones already in the air have 100% crit chance.

P.S.There aren't many punishing affixes for ranged indeed, whille for melee it looks like you're always stuck with at least couple abilities on mob that're real pain to deal with
Mortar. Fast. Teleport. Reflect damage. Invulnerable minions (!!!!!!!). Jailer. Chains/Molten on a regularly-fast-type mob.
Any of those combined with otherwise "ok" affixes such as Illusionist, Horde, Shielding. Basically its a miracle if my DH doesn't run in to a champion pack that has at least 1 quality that ruins her day.

razor disk is pretty effective, and seems to hit in its transit animation (the straight line portion to the targetted area).Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
haven't really gone back and tried a lot of other spenders besides EA and a bit of ST since i unlocked NT.

from my browsing the AH, xbows seem to simply come in higher dps. I've seen 1.5k dps xbows, the highest bows i've seen were around 1.1-1.2k.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
This could just be what was available at the time, but i've checked repeatedly and it seems to hold true.

i would say that your first priority would be to get as high a dps weapon as you can afford.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
After that, you probably want dps stats, but vitality (or other survival stats) will allow you to play a little sloppier until you learn how to not get hit by everything.

ITT: People think they should be able to kill anything in inferno 1 week after game is released.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
People are wrong.
Inferno may be overtuned, but that does not mean that you should be able to clear anything in it at this time. Come back when you have perfect hell gear and then I'll start to listen to you.
No one should be able to do anything substantive in inferno right now, get over it and farm hell while blizzard tweaks the game to perfection. They've never released a perfect game, they've always improved their games as time went on. To think any group of people can do something perfectly on the first try is folly. Get over yourself and play the game.

Nether tentacles does "weapon damage" so if he has +frost damage on his weapon (can +frost damage come from anywhere else?), it could slow for him on top of everything else. I recently started using nether tentacle and i love it.

What do you mean by NV? non-vitality?
