all I know is that the new trail of cinders will be godlike. I was having fun already with the way it is right now... but uh, 10x that damage?Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

Yes, it's way more fun to jump into the fray without worrying about getting gibbed. SS+Vault, clear from the inside. I have 48k HP and 290 resistPosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from ThuldDid you by chance keep a total deaths count? My apologies if it was on the youtube (maybe I was sipping coffee or something at that point ;-)
Not too many that I couldn't afford :P... It was quite a few though on some of the packs :/

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from ThuldPerhaps just dot point the restrictions of how you handled gear/AH etc edited in the first post give all those reading this a bit more context to your effort.
good idea! some people are probably wondering about that
Quote from skritsarnDo this as a barb and ur my hero
Lol, I'm not sure if that's possible (without days of farming :P). DH by design pretty much allows you to do anything that doesn't involve an enrage timer with no gear

I would recommend more resists, act2 has a lot of fast/annoying mobs in it, the fast ones don't hit that hard, and not very hard at all with around 200+ resist. (ok still moderately hard hitting, but it helps!). I spent around 100k on gear and could afford that same amount of dps and health, plus 180ish resists.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

Hungering arrow can be almost twice as much single target damage than evasive fire! Spray of teeth sacrifices a little bit of that strong single target damage (devouring) for extra AoE damagePosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

Finally got around to making a summary video of this. I did another budget run recently, except the budget was 0gPosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
All gear and repairs had to be paid for with gold found in the run. Enjoy!
These were the actual rules:
All gear/gold removed from character at start
Buying from AH is allowed
No selling items on AH, since there's a good chance at getting too much gold! (I found a couple of items in the run that would have sold for around 200-500k)
All elites must be killed
The last rule I figured could be bent a bit, since you're bound to hit an impossible one now and then, I thought maybe a 25-50k gold penalty for each elite pack skipped would be a good idea (I had to skip one!)

I had a post in the diablo forums, but it seems to be gone now...Quote from proletariaOP, could you elaborate some on the build(s) you used?
My main build ( http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#aPYXVd!aYe!YcZZYb ) allows for a lot of control when dealing with elites.
Caltrops/Torturous Ground is the only thing that can slow fast elites so I always keep that in there
Smoke Screen/Lingering is always important for getting out of sticky/jailed situations
Preparation is super important for keeping the disc pool filled, I really like the focused mind rune since the over-time effect allows using it early and being super efficient. Another good rune is backup plan, but it can really suck when it doesn't proc. I also wouldn't use backup plan for stuff like this to avoid controversy (ie "he only killed xxx because he got a couple of bp procs")
Vault is great for mobility (tumble to save on disc), good for kiting, escaping (you can pass through mobs with it), tripling run speed etc, and its cheap!
Hungering Arrow is too good to pass up for its superb single target damage.
Cluster Arrow is my choice of hatred spender, I prefer to spend a lot in one shot. I used mostly Loaded for Bear in the run for extra control (I prefer cluster bomb when doing normal runs)
Siegebreaker build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#bPYXVj!TYe!YYZZYY
Entangling/Justice is Served to generate fast hatred.
Cluster Bomb to unload heavy damage during each smoke screen
Mark instead of Vault to increase DPS/hatred
I had tried SP/Gloom instead of Smoke Screen, but a couple of cluster bombs still killed me right through it
Cydaea build: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#aRlXVP!TYe!YaZZYY
Ball Lightning and RoV/Beastly Bombs to mow down spiders.
Cluster Bombs to deal heavy damage to Cydaea.

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from IrixianI don't understand how you found most of your gear for the prices you've listed. Could you go into a bit of depth on your auction house strategy? I'd love to be able to pick up a bow like that for 10,000 gold, since that same blue dps-type bow costs over 2 million last I checked
check again lol, there's tons of them for 10k
