Considering the viability of using a Shadow Stalker build in Inferno: essentially keeping Discipline up consistently enough to nearly always have Shadow Power: Gloom on (for the damage reduction and life steal), by utilizing high crit chance with Night Stalker, and Bola: Bitter Pill as a supplement. Yes I know that 20% is reduced by 80% in Inferno, hoping a better Bow makes up for it. Even at 60% reduction in Hell I get great life back on all the crits.
Here's a sample of what I'm using now, though the Hatred Spenders can both be swapped out for anything else. I just like using Razor Disk right now 'cause I have a theme going for almost everything being purple, and I seem to get a LOT of crits with it. Just hit level 57 while lighting the torches in A3 Hell, gear is just basic stacked Dex/Vit and nothing else. +10 Disc +5 crit chance on my quiver. 650dps Bow (with Arcane dmg so it's purple). I know I'll need to completely regear for resists come Inferno as my Barb had that problem already. Also definitely need some +crit damage gear, I don't have that anywhere right now.
- Bola: Bitter Pill seems to be a decent method at the moment for refilling both bulbs.
- Sharp Shooter appears to be negating the need for Bait the Trap right now, but I'm only in A3 Hell so I haven't needed to swap it out yet.
- Using the Fan of Knives for when I get surrounded and need to stun, but am open to an alternative. The high burst damage has been nice for bosses.
- Battle Scars seems pretty common on every DH build I've seen, and works perfect here.
Not once have I tried Smoke Screen: they nerfed it before I even started my DH, and that 1 second always looked paltry to me.
Comments/suggestions? I'd like to make it work...
