    Re: Normal Demon Hunter Progression

    Boss Kills

    Level 8 - Skeleton King (Normal) - 2m45s. DPS felt a tad slow but I was never in danger of dying. Lack of a real AoE skill made the skeletons last a long time.

    Level 11 - Spider Queen (Normal) - 1m30s

    Level 13 - Warden (Normal) - 25s

    Level 13 - Butcher (Normal) - 1m42s-
    I switched my spec around a little so I had hungering arrow, rapid fire, vault and smoke screen. I figured I would need a bit more damage avoidance, which was definitely the case. Damage was certainly sufficient, and I could have done a lot better with some movement improvements.

    Level 15 - Mahgda (Normal) - 1m15s (1 Death) - I got really sloppy and was hit hard by her adds, who can nearly one shot me with the slow attack.

    Level 22 - Zoltan Kulle (Normal) - 36s -The extra dps from my weapon made this pretty easy. Basically just focused him down with rapid fire.

    Level 22 - Belial (Normal) 1m59s - Went through one poison explosion in phase 3, but the normal hits were only taking about 300 damage or so. With 1000 life it wasn't too difficult.

    Level 26 - Ghom (Normal) 1m10s -
    Had some issues with keeping my hatred up, so it took a bit longer than I expected. Ghom is so slow there is little danger of dying.

    Level 27 - Siegebreaker (Normal) 30s -
    Vault and rapid fire made very short work of the siegebreaker. Again, he is too slow to pose serious difficulty.

    Level 29 - Spider (Normal) 24s -
    Again the DPS was too high to make the fight difficult. She has far less hitpoints than Ghom.

    Level 29 - Azmodan (Normal) 37s
    - Got to the first pool phase. The tick was only about 34 damage a hit, so it didn't hurt too much even when I couldn't move quickly enough. He was dead after the 2nd pool dropped.

    Level 31 - Diablo (Normal) - Completed this with a fellow demon hunter. With two of us having reasonably decent gear, the only issue was getting caught in the cages.

    Milestones

    At level 10 I crafted my first three items, bracers, helm and belt. I didn't get great rolls, but they were a significant upgrade over the white items. I haven't seen a rare yet (Skeleton King didn't drop any), so I'm cruising in blue for now.

    By level 20 I found a rare crossbow with a socket. For under 100 gold at the AH I bought a flawless square ruby which bumped the DPS of my weapon for 26 to 49. Gems are a huge bonus at low levels and my damage doubled with this upgrade.

    Thanks for the input... the spoiler tag was included as I list the names of bosses. I just wanted to err on the side of caution.

    this is here per my request to help establish benchmarks for new folks. At what level do you kill certain bosses and at that level what is your dps and armor and other key stats. when this is done it could easily be viewed as a spoiler for new folks that have not played thru the game.

    Thanks for doing this omelet

    Huh, this was pretty helpful. I'm new and playing DH, and it was nice to see some kind of benchmark for playing. Thanks!
