by all means keep your current setup. just sell the wh if u cant upgrade your weapon, it will always be a downgrade as long as u dont have a good manticore.also to heavily upgrade your dps u just have to save up for a ~1200 dps 2soc one. it will be the highest upgrade you can get by far apart from perhaps a trifecta ring. i had the same problem as you until i got my manticore. every wh i ran through my calculator was a downgrade. if youve reached that point its time to save your gold for the really big gunsQuote from baron01Upgrade to what? I cant afford any sensible Manticore that would come at least close to what I have now. I dont see many 1.4k DPS crossbows with CHD&socket on AH either.Quote from flexxiid say keep it if u upgrade ur weapon soon...else just sell it
Problem is that Nats 2P is absolute keeper so in order to swap Nat's chest, I would have to buy either Nat's ring with CHC or downgrade from Mempo. Ring will be very expensive, for which I would have to sell the Witching Hour. If I sell it, I dont have to swap Nat's chest out because I will be keeping 2P Innas anyway.
Any other suggestions for slots to upgrade?

That's a very good point, I did not think you could perma life steal by continuously strafing.
Not to run out of hatred without punishment, I think you need a very high dps and most people who read this won't have enough gear for it.
Besides, do you really think Nightstalker has a significant impact on your discipline regeneration ?
I find it quite useless and I don't really see how getting high amount of CC can make a difference.
Also, have you considered using a soj ? It looks perfect on my demon hunter.
After some further testing :
- Rockets are cool , maybe better than demolition.
- I sometimes run out of hatred without Punishment
- Even with Vault and no night stalker I almost never run out of Discipline, and if I do I just have to stop vaulting for a while and it is ok.
nightstalker has a huge impact for me. i only run movspeedstrafe because its such smooth gameplay, i have 214k archerydps though so i can easily do mp1 with it. i briefly ran with soj but its just too much dpsloss for me so it doesnt make sense to use it. besides with nightstalker i dont need + max disc, the only i have is the +10 from the chest. i built my char around this: highest possible dps and max disc regeneration and i achieve that through high crit and things like andys visage. ofc potentially i can run out of hatred without punishment due to a streak of globes not dropping but that happens like once every 10 runs for me.
tl/dr: nightstalker with high enough crit = legacy nats and makes any +disc obsolete.

ofc its a downgrade. u dont have a manticore so your weapon is all physical damage which makes the benefit from elemental dmg huge. even with a manticore your innas might beat that WHPosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
id say keep it if u upgrade ur weapon soon...else just sell it

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from baron01I cant imagine perma Shadow Power: Shadow Glide without either legacy 4P Nats or a lot of custom gear tailored for Strafe builds--pick up range, extra crit on strafe and similar
I tried Strafe build with Emberstrafe run but it did not work well for me. I was running out of hatred and I was significantly slower killing elites. Vengeance fixed the issue with hatred but it was further slowing me down because I have 0 pick up range on my gear.
This topic is a good discussion about alternative builds that can be beneficial and bring fresh air into rather boring still waters of DH builds.
a lot of crit and backup plan b is the answer. i have ~58% crit +7% strafecrit from natschest and nightstalker at that point is like legacy nats. you can watch my drifting shadow vod in the op where you can see me perma sprinting without legacy nats so it definitely is possible
i dont even use nats 4piece anymore i use an andys and still dont run out of disc thats how strong nightstalker+vengeance is
12/8/2012 1:21:03 AM
there is three options if you feel punishment is mandatory: your attackspeed is too high, your dmg is too low, or both. with the right setup you really dont need punishment and you can run drifting shadow on mp1 instead. i manage around 9min mp1 runs with drifting shadow which isnt so bad i think but i dont focus on plvling anymore anyways as i dont see the point in rushing it when im already at mfcap. also what perseu said is right. vault ta needs alot more disc than shadowpower runspeed at least if u dont have any ls or loh. shadowpower is superior in that way as itserves as our permadefense and our sprint all in one spell for 14 disc. not to mention as long as you are not interrupted strafing you only have to use a single shadowpower for a whole elitepack due to the way shadowpower works with channeled spells. i would just say overall strafe is very efficient both in resources and in the effort you as a player have to put in(you only need to press one button every 5 secs and plow through the map with one mousebutton pressed) also iirc i never said strafe was the fastest spec in the op, i just said its a funspec that makes leveling/farming much more bearable and i wanted to share it.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

at 180k dps (with archery) and low ats, drifting shadow is perfectly viable on mp 0/1.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
i can farm mp1 with this gear/build https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Tankor-2271/hero/231385 ezpz with perma shadowpower sprint and very rarely run out of resources

That's my build, I might try it with Smoke Screen but I cannot get used to running without Shadow Power I do not think.
steady aim doesnt make sense u have to use archery.
use this build http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#eSXVhg!bXe!cZccZc has both shadow power and smoke screen
also your dps might be too low to run with the 100% movspeed straferune already so maybe try the strafe grenaderune

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from IlnezharaI'm actually really interested in playing this build but I've been having an insane amount of problems with it. I have about 112k DPS with the passives you mentioned and still can't run this without every phase beast pack literally 1 shotting me EVERY god damned time. I can't kill them before they get a hit on me.
That's my gear, any advice would be appreciated.
have you picked smoke screen - choking gas? it is the easiest countermeasure against elite packs that give you problems. just strafe into them use ss and strafe out of them(u can ss while strafing, it doesnt stop the strafe). rinse repeat. nightstalker should keep your disc high enough to always have enough to do this. hatred is a much bigger problem for strafe builds with manticores. it would help if you could post the exact build youve been using.

Hi,Posted in: EU Servers Trading
this zuni mojo just dropped http://imgur.com/YLDsP
so high damage high crit and zombie charger mana. what do you think its worth? saw a fairly similar one with little less damage but no zombie charger affix for 190m.
thanks in advance

As some of you might know, we have a passive Talent that enhances Movspeed by 15% when at full hatred.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Monk has a Passive that generally increases Movspeed by 10%. The question is why does the DH passive count towards the Movspeed cap (puts me at 12%5 from 124%) while the Monk one does not ( puts me at 134%). Is there a reason for this or should we let Blizzard know about this as right now its a completely useless passive
