A few months ago, I asked the same thing, and we ended up with a nice long discussion of builds gears and all sorts of nonsense.
If not for the report I have to write on now, I would have more time for a better answer.

Well, suppose the DH dmg coefficients gets more than doubled, you could gear defensively, actually kills stuff at range at a decent pace. Only time will tell. =PPosted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

The Companions scale in dmg, but in regards to defensive stats Idk.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

On EU servers, it took me 3~4B to get to 399.5k DPS (unbuffed @ p100). It would be cheaper if you could craft a nice amulet too, but I had no luck with it. The prices are going down atm though, and you're also on the us server, so it might not be that expensive for you.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

I did some calculations too. It's based on the following "fixes":Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Mempo with 170 dex, 4.5 crit
Radiant Star Emerald
Same Manticore with 48 Weapon%
Unity: 38 average dmg, 157 dex, 4% dmg to elites, 38 crit dmg
Same dead man's legacy with 7% crit chance to rapid Fire (secondary crit term)
Same necklace with attack speed => craft soething with 200 more dex instead of lacunis.
Here is the calculations, just skip to pics unless you want to check for erros.=P
m:=63: --monster lvl
b1:=(978+1404)/2+(0)/2: --base dmg
type_atk_spd1:=1.1: --weapon base attack speed
weap_atk_spd1:=11: --on-weapon increased attack speed
alpha1:=65: --external attack speed
A1:=2701: --Main attribute
c1:=61.5: --crit chance
d1:=429: --crit damage
m1:=0: --damage modifier
r1:=302: --all resistance
reduc1:=(11)/2: --average damage reduction %
L1:=29: --life %
c2:=c1 -1 +7:
Offensive_Stats:=Matrix([[ "DPS 1" , "DPS 2" , "Difference in DPS" ],
[ DPS1 , DPS2 , DPS2 - DPS1 ],
[ "DPH 1" , "DPH 2" , "Difference in DPH" ],
[ DPH1 , DPH2 , DPH2 - DPH1 ],
[ "Raw DPS1" , "Raw DPS2" , "Difference in raw DPS" ],
[ raw_DPS1 , raw_DPS2 , raw_DPS2 - raw_DPS1 ],
[ "Raw DPH1" , "Raw DPH2" , "Difference in raw DPH" ],
[ raw_DPH1 , raw_DPH2 , raw_DPH2 - raw_DPH1 ],
[ "APS 1" , "APS 2" , "Difference in APS" ],
[ APS1 , APS2 , APS2 - APS1 ]]);
Defensive_Stats:=Matrix([[ "Simplified EHP 1" , "Simplified EHP 2" , "Difference in simplified EHP" ],
[ simp_EHP1 , simp_EHP2 , simp_EHP2 - simp_EHP1 ],
[ "Advanced EHP1" , "Advanced EHP2" , "Difference in advanced EHP" ],
[ adv_EHP1 , adv_EHP2 , adv_EHP2 - adv_EHP1 ],
[ "Hit Points 1" , "Hit Points 2" , "Difference in Hit Points" ],
[ HP1 , HP2 , HP2 - HP1 ],
[ "Mitigation 1" , "Mitigation 2" , "Difference in Mitigation" ],
[ 1-mit1 , 1-mit2 , mit2 - mit1 ]]);
DPS goes from 244.5k to 374.9k (wiht hidden Rapid Fire and unity bonus), with the 2.22 break point maintained (not factored in this calculation). But can easily be calculated:
DPH1*2.22 = 269.5, and DPH2 = 182.8 * 2.22 = 406.8.
EHP remains mostly unchanged at 188.2k. You end up trading some armor for HP.
Finding those gear pieces should be possible with all the mess atm. Gl bro.

If you get a Mempo with dex and crit for 200 mio now, and one with 5% crit chance for 500. You get that extra attack speed, and then you can lose that attack speed affix elsewhere (the ring for example), and still maintain the same breakpoint on Bombardment.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Speaking of Rapid Fire, your quiver does not have a bonus to that. On my char, 1% crit chance is 4.9k DPS; it's a huge but hidden buff, and I'd recommend you get that.
One of your gems in the Manticore needs to grow.
You can also skip the vit on the Bloodprints, because of the costly nature of those.
There are also a few netpicky things, like, you can craft your gloves and bracers better than what you have atm.

Lastly you could get a better Manticore with highter Weapon%, so your manticore reaches about 1600 DPS, or even more, if you can. That will be costly though, very costly.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

Easy upgrades would be Bracers and Shoulders. You can get about 100 more sex on shoulders, and 150 more dex on your bracers. Then upgrade your Gems to Marquise gems in your weapon, and Radiant Stars in your remainin slots brings you close. You can also get about 30 dex and almost 200 more vitality on your Inna's Vast Expanse, but that's another story. Other than that, unless you want to hit the next break point with Rapid Fire at 2.01 atks pr sec, you'll find it hard to reach 400k buffed DPS.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands

I swapped my 380k DPS DH gear to my Monk, and facerolld whatever chose to stand in my way -- it was very nice and very fun, and also quite different from what I've been used to (overly concern about your HP and stuff). If the DH could be buffed to get the same feel of power to it, I'd be very happy indeed.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
I don't care how. I'll people with better understanding deal with these problems.
Right now it's "glass cannon", with no cannon.
Even with 1100 all res and 6500 armor you still die horribly, because you can't deny damage pressure, because you can't even kill mobs around you with 180k DPS in even a decent speed; you can kill mobs, but it takes way too long for my taste, thus ruining the fun for me.

I found for about 2.4 mio gold this:Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Mempo for +79 all res, +10 HP, +14 (for gem), 180 dx, 8 atk spd
Strongarm Bracers for +8% HP, +210 Armor +70 vit, 160 dex, 4.5% crit
Natalya's Embrace for +180 vitality , 30 all res, 90 dex, Hungering Arrow dmg 12%
for 2 more
Natalya's Refelction 44 all res, 9% HP atk spd 8, dmg 22, dex 85 + 130
128.6k => 132.3k
102.4k => 250.7k
This is disregarding dodge.
for 5 mio manticore, and 8 mio perfect star ruby:
Manticore 1166.4 DPS, with 2 sockets, 45% weapon dmg,
10% atk spd and 94 crit dmg:
using your skill-setup and segested gear gives you buffed 198.0k DPS and 598.3k EHP. I don't know your budget, but there you have something to aim for. Shoulders and bracers are also very easy to craft very good.
I regards to builds I'd go with a Rapid Fire build anytime, it got a massive boost in patch 1.0.8, but the old Spike Trap stuff is still very good I suppose. For lower MP there's Strafe builds and Elemental Arrow builds that works quite nicely. I find Multi Shot and Bola Shot really nice too.
