Diablo 3 Class War - Demon Hunter Delinquency

Diablo 3 Class War - Demon Hunter



The Demon Hunter is our ranged weapon fighter, specializing in crossbows which they can dual wield. Along with this they also have the ability to set traps. Already these two skill sets allows the Demon Hunter to replace the ranged offence of the Amazon and to spice things up a bit with the Trap skills of the Assassin.   
 
The Demon Hunter won't solely be a ranged class though, and they might bring in some unique melee weapons as well,...but to get the best out of your Demon Hunter it's probably best hanging back and volleying arrows until your enemies are no more. 


Alongside the traps you'll have at your disposal (skills that damage enemies over time or keep them away from you) you will also be using Battle Tactics.

This set of skills suggests a play style where the Demon Hunter stays out of close range combat, slowing down or trapping enemies in place and even utilizing some handy tricks like smoke bomb's to avoid getting surrounded.



They also wield Shadow Magic, skills which seem very ninja-esque, by turning you invisible, allowing you to back-stab and even confuse foes.

Demon Hunters use 2 different resources, but not like the Barbarians Stamina & Rage. Instead they have Hatred & Discipline which are both monitored in the resource orb.

Hatred is the 'mana' for offensive skills, while the Discipline resource focuses on defensive and field control abilities. Hatred regens a lot faster than Discipline, so while you may want to unleash unholy hell upon your enemies...it is recommended that you keep an eye on Discipline levels in case you wish to make that "heroic" retreat (WoW rogues are well known for this tactic).

For those who like to take a bit of control on the battlefield and infuriate your enemies by stunning, stalling and generally annoying them into making mistakes...a Demon Hunter may not be a bad choice.


The new tech trees will encourage players to make unique builds, but you're pretty much looking at a ranged rogue with the Demon Hunter.

Great for laying back while the warrior classes do all the hard-hitting melee damage.
