is a very good Demon Hunter build that does massive
damage and is totally safe. Most people in the group die
multiple times while I stay alive and rez them. My
repair costs are at a minimum.
Here is the best Demon Hunter build I came up with so
Archery - This is good for any type of ranged Demon
Vengeance - This is very important as you will need all
the hatred and discipline you can squeeze out of your
Sharp Shooter - This is also extremely important to help
you do crit damage often. While you are walking up to
the mobs, it can build up to 100% so that whatever
damage you dish out, whether its AOE or single target,
you will get a crit. Also, the crits add up thereby
juicing your DPS to the max.
Grenades with the
Tinkerer rune is best IMO. It does good AOE damage and also gives you 30% extra hatred per toss.
You can spam these as they are released very fast. I
would assign this to the left mouse button.
For the right mouse button use multishot with the "fire
at will" rune. With this rune, your hatred costs are
reduced to half so you can spam multishot all you want.
Multishot goes to everything, even those walls some mobs
For button #1, on your keyboard, you need a single target
DPS. I found 2 great ones. One is impale with the overpenetration rune. This does 250% damage and goes
through everything. The 2nd good option is using rapid
fire with the bombardment rune. This is just like
regular rapid fire but it also does AOE damage to all
those in the area. Its great.
For button #2, use smoke screen with with the lingering
fog rune. This will give you invisibility for 3 seconds.
You take no damage while this skill is active and also
mobs go after others when they don't see you so you can
drop aggro fast with this skill.
For button #3, use preparation with the focused mind
rune. This will gradually increase your discipline to
45. This means you can spam discipline skills a little
while it is active. You also need as much discipline as
you can get.
For button #4, you need the bat companion that
regenerates 3 hatred per second. This is a fantastic
hatred generator and the bat stays up after you use it
once. You need all the extra hatred you can get. Also,
it is good to put this on button #4 so that your focused
mostly on buttons 1, 2, and 3. It is easier to play this
What you have to do is pretty much nuke mobs with your
multishot and nuke elites with your single target damage
If anyone attacks you, you can either run or use smoke
screen. While smoke screen is active nobody can hit you.
If the fight gets heavy, use 2 smoke screens then
restore your discipline with preparation and continue
fighting. While preparation is on, you can spam your
smoke screen a bit. Also, try not to run away. Instead
DPS the mobs as much as you can while your invisible.
This strategy works very well. You will rarely die, even
in hell or inferno.
Finally, for gems, try to use stuff that increases crit
damage on the weapons. For the helms, I use magic find
but that is optional. On all other items, use dexterity
This setup is completely OP and I wanted to keep it a
secret, but I am glad to share the information with
members on this site.
In the end, you will be the guy rezing everyone and
doing the most DPS. This setup is almost perfect.
Also, I got some of my strategy builds from
Diablo 3 Billionaire, there's a small fee for it, but worth
