Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Solo PvE Skill Builds.
Primarily a ranged class in Diablo 3, the Demon Hunter deals with bows and crossbows as well as traps and grenades. Like most of the builds I intend to experiment with, the main deciding factor is the ability to kill hordes of enemies, burn down single high health pool targets, as well as mobility to get in or out of a battle quickly. If you’ve seen my other videos, you’ll also notice I do not have a Naked Demon Hunter killing Leoric video. This isn’t for a lack of trying but simply because it wasn’t possible to do so without a ranged weapon equipped.
Many players have the opinion that they simply need to kill enemies quickly and not worry about the repercussions of not having an escape mechanism. This may be true for the beginning stages where bosses don’t do enough damage to be threatening or enemies are slow and cumbersome making it easy for you to kite around them. However, you need to take into account that in the current version of Diablo 3, there are enemies which move up to 200% faster than your character and they have no problems getting within melee range of you to deal damage. This makes it even more important when flying solo to survive that sort of onslaught.
Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Group PvE Skill Build.
Similar to the Wizard in a group PvE setting, the Demon Hunter excels at dealing damage from range. The only difference would be their choice of damage is limited to the weapons they carry and the resource they utilize will be Hatred for damage and Discipline for utility. As far as Hatred consumption goes, I decided to go with “Grenades” as they are able to generate more Hatred than the other Primary Skills but that may be changed based on how often you run out of Hatred and whether you are almost always capped out. From there I chose a high DPS Skill and a Crowd Clearing Skill which was spammable so long as I could afford the Hatred.
Diablo 3 Demon Hunter PvP Skill Build.
The Demon Hunter’s PvP Skills provide a form of flair via grenades and traps. But one extremely useful ability is to provide the rest of the group a method of focusing down enemies 1 by 1. Their Marked for Death Skill applies to all damage taken by the target which makes it that much easier for allies to take enemies out. Whether by providing supporting fire which can snare enemies or engaging in advantageous fights, the Demon Hunter is 2nd to none in this department. Watching the video and reading up in my Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Guide section, you will notice my choices are not updated for the Skill Runes launched in Patch 13 of the beta but the underlying premise of dealing damage as quickly as possible while maintaining a safe distance doesn’t change.
