    Post your Demon Hunter builds here!

    The Wizard page already has a topic like this so I'd figured I'd start one here.

    Use this url to get started:
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter

    Choose skills, rune effects and passives then copy/paste the link on the right hand side here to share. Try coming up with a PVP and PVE build. Critique each others builds constructively.

    Here's my two:

    PVP: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...Rgd!UVc!caYcbc

    Re: Post your Demon Hunter builds here!

    After watching people play on the beta streams and theorycrafting how to play at later levels and what they might be doing good/bad I came up with this for PvE.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...Uek!WcX!YZcaYb

    The idea is to use two one handed crossbows for fast attack speed and high damage on your normal/white attacks as well as faster usage of your special skill shots.

    You would Marked for Death a mob, Entangling Shot it, and proceed to own with Impale, Evasive Fire, and normal attacks to regenerate hatred as needed. Marked for Death would spread and you will be cutting down monsters like they were not even there. Everything synergizes with everything else with the passives I selected. The only thing I'm considering is removing Preparation and replacing it with Shadow Power.

    I'm envisioning insane single target DPS and big AoE damage with the runed Impale.

    Smoke Screen with the speed rune should be more than enough survivability coupled with Evasive Fire and your Entangling Shot.

    This is what I would call a highly aggressive build because you'll be right on the fringe of the mobs using Evasive Fire just in time to keep your distance. I have this huge idea in my mind of how everything would work. I almost want to write a full fledged guide, haha.

    In order to make it a lethal PvP build I'd take out Impale for Vault and definitely keep the Preparation.

    Re: Post your Demon Hunter builds here!

    Copy/pasted from my post in the beta discussion forum build thread.

    Ok, so this one's a bit of a gimmick build that may be totally unviable. Fun though. I call him the Rocket Man. And my first DH will have to be Elton John because of it.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...keP!gVX!cbYaYc

    Skills:
    Sentry runed to Spitfire Turret (Autofire + Rockets)
    Cluster Arrow runed to Shooting Stars (Rockets)
    Strafe runed to Rocket Storm (Yup. Rockets)
    Marked for Death runed to Contagion (More damage, hopefully across a crowd)
    Preparation runed to Backup Plan (more discipline for MfD and Sentry, 55% of no cooldown)
    Vault runed to Tumble (for travelling)

    Passives:

    Ballistics (Double damage rockets)
    Custom Engineering (double duration on Sentry and MfD)
    Fundamentals (for restoring Hatred if I run out, so I can shoot more rockets)

    Concept:

    Well. Hint. ROCKETS. Yeah. Strafe if I need to keep moving, Cluster Arrow otherwise, always sentry, always MfD.

    Skills:
    Entangling Shot runed to hit 9 targets
    Double Chakram for straight forward group chewing
    Impale runed for ridiculous crit damage
    Vault to get out of trouble with AoE stun in case I have to vault IN to trouble.
    Bat companion for hatred generation
    Shadow power with hatred generation for awesome

    Passives:
    Sharpshooter for more crits on impale
    Archery for straight-forward boost (also more crits if I use twin x-bows) <--- I could see myself swapping this slot around a bit
    Cull the Weak to kill slowed targets better

    Concept:
    Slow. Impale the nastier targets. Chakram the fodder.

    going trapper crippler, using strafe to hammer the mobs while they stand still.

    Entangle - chaingang - primary slower
    Caltrops - jagged - secondary slower
    Spiketrap - bandolier - primary trap damage
    Sentry - vigilant - secondary trap damage
    Smoke Screen - displacement - escape utility
    Strafe OR rapid fire - depending on which one plays better.

    cull the weak - slowed damage
    Custom engineering - duration on traps
    perfectionist - discipline economy

    Knife Strafer. Abusing critical hit bonuses left and right. Looks fun.

    Not sure about Shadow Power or Rain of Vengeance, will have to mess around with those once the game is out for real. Sentry or some other skill might be more valuable.

    If Entangling Shot has a longer slow at higher levels, this seems like it would totally work. As of now it looks like it only lasts a whopping two seconds, so you'd have to be going back and forth between ES and Impale pretty darn fast.

    Can swap the rune to make the slow last longer, but less targets. Hard to decide.

    Decent concept. I have been tinkering with a somewhat similar build, but what you really lack here is utility. With this build you're basically a sitting duck if something quick comes at you, something teleports to you, or you get slowed. Your damage abilities are fairly weak considering their descriptions.

    Rain of Vengeance is on a 60s cooldown, so you'll barely use that with the fast pace of Diablo3. Your Strafe (which I am happy to see has synergy with some of your abilities) makes you move at 55% of your normal speed. That's pretty slow. If you don't kill your enemies immediately, you will probably be dead at higher difficulties. Also your Steady Aim passive, great, but as I mentioned, if you can't get out of dodge, then it's a wasted ability.

    I never said it'd work

    I'll just be crossing my fingers that crits proc often enough to kill everything really quickly
