Quote from azuresky808Quote from DavittoWell from what I've heard, the Demon Hunter resource system doesn't refresh fast enough (the offensive one) like the other classes, like Witch Doctor, or Wizard, for example, so there's constant downtime where you don't have enough energy to use skills and you just shoot normal arrows, thus losing DPS. So improving the refresh rate would be a good idea... I think the DPS is fine the way it is now so that isn't a problem.
Look into alternate means of hatred generation. Smoke Screen + obsidian. Preparation + crimson. Marked for Death + golden. Companion + golden.
These all make very good means of getting hatred back over time. Some are better than others but regardless you have options here that many in the forums seem to have overlooked (unless you missed the thread about not using a yellow generator move I posted up)
I see your point but i dont think the dh should have to sacrifice skill slots to be on the same level as others. I dont think its the generation itself but that there arent enough discipline skills, so you effectively have half resources. The dh has enough utility, but maybe a buff to the damage of the skills that would replace the basic attack, like rapid fire etc. would help
