Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster. Just want to give a shout out to all the demon hunters out there and to the people who post on here a lot, love some of the work you guys do.
I am having a big glass canon issue with my demon hunter, and I don't feel I am doing anywhere near the damage I should be.
I followed the 100k inferno clear guide, however I just don't have the patients to kite quite as much as he was. With that being said, I want to hit like a truck.
I understand DH's are glass cannons but I am wanting to perfect my build as much as possible. I don't have a ton of gold to work with, but a mil or two won't be hard to come up with. Not looking for bis items obviously but just give me an idea what to look for.
Run down of my items.
Gloves - 105dex, 6%ias, 32% crit hit dmg *chd*
shoulders - 134dex, 68vit
helm - 75dex, 133vit
chest - 76dex, 146vit, 10max disc.
ring1 - 53dex, 1 socket, 28% chd
ring2 - 34dex, 58vit, 30% chd, 5% life
boots - 12% ms, 171dex, 80vit
2h bow - 1061dps, 347-1168 dmg,
quiver - +10max disc, 132dex, 13% ias, 5% critical hit chance *chc*
wrists - 132dex, 60vit
neck - 110dex, 7% ias
belt - 146dex, 75vit
pants - 69dex, 14vit, 2 sockets gem'd with dex.
If you guys can suggest me some good items to buy I would be really appreciative. With all the patches and my lack of knowledge with dh's I am kinda lost here. Let me know what to look out for, thanks guys. Currently have 2mil, but access to another 3mil from a friend.
Thank you for the response, I really appreciate it. I understand the game play mechanics of the DH, I just don't currently enjoy it. With low dps, aka 33k it just takes WAY to long to kill things. Let me send you a SS of my gear / stats and we can go from there.
If you could give me a rough idea of the "perfect" weapon I should look for, something I could get in the million gold range roughly.
This is my gear + an amulet I don't know if I should use or use the other one. Anywho, let me know what I should upgrade to. I REALLY appreciate any help guys, thanks so much! I love this game and really wanna beat a2 inferno. Thanks!
My question is though, what stats should I be looking for on items to get the highest dmg. As off stats I will look for resits also. Like...I guess lets take one piece of gear at a time. How about legs. Best case scenario I would want high vit, high dex, 2 sockets, and all resists correct?
Silmano's advice is good if you're looking to do a tankier build. If you want to go glass cannon, the biggest hole in your gear is critical hit chance. I'd start by getting a new helm with more dex and crit chance. Also, as previously mentioned, your pants are low on dex as well. Whatever weapon you choose it almost needs to have a socket to be worth anything. In the auction house, you can enter critical hit damage with a value of 101 into the search field to find all items with a socket and natural crit damage, this can help you find the best weapon you can afford. Filling out a stat sheet is definitely worth the time. Some upgrades are hard to spot without it, and you can more easily judge what will be the most effective for the price.
First off.. you're not a glass canon. If you want to go pure glass canon, then you can lose the Vit on your items. The reason that glass canon builds are so cheap to get is because you really only need Dex as your primary stat. Selling your dex+vit items will allow you to buy higher dex items for much cheaper.
You'll also want to get crit chance and crit damage on every item where it's available. Getting as much IaS on your gloves and quiver is best.
As posted above, if you want a hybrid build, than you'll need to get AR in addition to your Dex+Vit. This is going to be a little costlier and you'll have to work on it a piece at a time.
Right now, you're sort of in the middle between a glass canon and hybrid and are weak in both.
your missing a ton of crit chance.....wrists, head and neck are cheap places to get this. search the AH for strictly dex and crit chance on those slots. and for a "glass cannon" you got tons of health! lol like the guy above said, ditch some vit and get more dex!
Great advice so far guys. Ok so what I decided to do was find as much dex, vit and all resist on each item that I could without spending a godly amount of money. I also picked up a new bow, but it wasn't that much of an upgrade and is pretty slow. I just bought it to try and resell it. So now I am going to list all of my new items and you guys can let me know your thoughts and if I am going in the right direction. I think I got a sick deal on this amulet, let me know
I only paid 200k for the bow! I only bought it to resell it and make a profit, I figured minimum I could sell it for 300k and make a lil profit =D. Good deal or no? Overall it raised my dps / crit dmg sooo it worked heh.
