Natalya Rain of Vengeance Demon Hunter

Recommended Posts

Guest Silantkillz

After reading this I went and reset my Demonhunter for the build. The problem was, Strafe and Rain of Vengence are on the same button. I can either have one or the other,  but not both. Is this something that may have been changed since this was written?

Answer I was given a few months ago when I asked this:

You have to unlock skills to associate them with any key, it's kind of a tip. Go into options, gameplay and enable elective mode. Now you can have more than one hunting skill, or primary skill or whatever you want ok?

Another good cubed ring option is the RoRG, which allows you to remove one more set piece and replace the shoulders and that slot with Marauder's to get the 2-set bonus.  Unlocking all companions gets you +10% movement speed, +1 Hatred / second, and it turns your companion power into a Hatred generator and taunt (as well as damage boost).  If you're in a group Unity is worthless anyway, and thanks to the new XP rules you should never not be in a group.

It's a tough choice vs. the damage-boosting Elements, although the added damage from all your pets helps a little.  I love them just for the added survivability, as enemies targeting pets are not targeting you.

How do you use rain of vengeance and evasive fire without stopping and getting the debuff of yan pants?

Reaching 1.88 attack speed and 46% CDR in your sheet will result in the optimal 3 x1_demonhunter_evasivefire.png Evasive Fires to 1 Rain of Vengeance ratio.

 
 
I'm pretty sure that's wrong
 
Also I think crashing rain eats Yan pants debuff.

The Yan buff stays for about a second longer once you stop in place, giving you just enough time for an Evasive Fire shot. It's tricky, but not hard to execute once you get the hang of it. Personally I hold Strafe (right click) the whole time, then stop in place (Shift) momentarily and shoot an Evasive Fire (left click), and quickly let go.

Do you think there's an inaccuracy in the numbers, or that 3:1 is the preferred ratio?

Hey deadset, excellent guide. I'd been playing fire nats-strafe since the start of the season and since seeing this I've rolled lightning and cubed a fulminator, my grifts went up by about 5 levels right away. I was just wondering about the bane of the trapped and cull the weak passive, I don't really have any of the secondary affixes that CC -otherwise my gear is all decently rolled, are they worth using still to combo with the templar? Would you recommend any alternatives? I've also been considering cubing Wyrdward rather than CoE for multi for this reason. Once again thanks a lot for this guide, using the fulminator is simply a stroke of genius -and the whole thing is really well thought out and written up.

does this build work at all in HC, or is it 100% glass cannon/play at your own risk?

Maybe there is something I'm not understanding but why would you want a socket without Ramalandi's Gift? Would it be to enchant it to something else then use a Gift?

I really like this, because I can use the same build for single and multiplayer. But it does mean that Man Carver is a tricky proposition, with no 50% DR from Unity. Other than that, having more companions to hid behind is great.

The way I read the stat priorities, it's saying that if you don't have Ramalandi's Gift, a socket is the most important thing (for legendary gems).

Legendary gems can't be used in non-jewelry pieces (except the gem of ease), but otherwise you are correct, having a socket allows you to put an emerald (for most builds) in it, which is a massive damage spike.

Build should be the same for hardcore, just prioritize Toughness stat perfection before DPS stat perfection and you should be good. :)

Great build. Would you mind creating a build for clearing "The Thrill" conquest - Level 45 Grift Solo with no set items?

Thanks for the great builds. Question: Why not a cubed Visage of Gunes vs. Aquila Cuirass if you can maintain 100% up time on Seethe?

The build does not run Seethe at all, but Dark Heart for the 50% DR, and receives another 50% DR from Aquila. Better defenses at the expense of harder resource management, essentially.

Hello,

 

Great guide and thanks to it I have finally been bitten by the D3 bug. I can't stop playing (send help). I have a few remarks / questions concerning the build.

 

My questions:

1) Is there an alternative to "Lord Greenstone's Knife". It took a while to get the hang of it's timing. The damage is quit large when at 15+ stacks during CoV lightning proc. But I feel it kinda breaks the flow for the build. Having to strafe straight into the Elite Pack, if and only if at 15+ stacks and during a 4s cycle.. makes it very unreliable.
Only using it during CoV procs and at a desired number of stacks still means I have to do some elite packs without this skill. And as for the damage, a single RoV (deadcenter, with Crashing Rain) hits just as hard as a 30-stack Fan of Knives.

Is it really worth it to not only use a skill slot, but a cube-slot for this combination?

What are other alternatives you might suggest?

 

I found running "Fulminator" or "Calamatiy" feels like it provides so much more, and then you can run Companion - Wolf instead. This particularly feels better when teaming up, either using Fulminator for the massive AoE damage (I party often with a monk who does insane single-target.) or Calamity (after casting RoV - Shade) it pretty much garantuees uptime on all mobs). You can also pop your wolf for 30% party wide damage increase on longer fights.

 

2) I still haven't found my Focus/Restraint, so I have been running Zodiac instead. This puts my Wolf / Vengeance at ridiculous low cooldowns, and RoV at about 1s, allowing it to be cast in a 1:1 Generator ratio rather than 2:1.

 

I have been theorycrafting of running Zodiac / RoG and combine the Natalya 6-piece bonus with a 2-piece bonus from Marauder. Maybe even switch out "Dawn" for another xbow because you do not need the 65% CD reduction when you run Zodiac. (It's pretty much off-CD constantly)

 

When I gather the gear required to test this out, I'll post back with results. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

 

--

My variations:
1) I run "Archery" over "Leech"; it's a lot easier to keep your hatred above 90% in order to continuously benefit from "Aguila's Cuirras". My gear is not entirely optimized so I still have a fair bit of Life on Hit. I also have 'Flavor of Time' and not my Hellfire Pendant yet, so my opinion on this might change as I dive into higher GRs.

2)  I also prefer "Vault" over "Smokescreen". The movement speed of SS is really good for repositioning, I find it's discipline cost a tad bit high. You can just vault twice (with Tumble Rune) to get out of harms way. And for traversing the rifts, being able to cast vault ~10 times gets you to your destination a lot faster than running with SS. You can also vault over hazards whereas with SS you're running into them. 

 

3) When partying I often switch out my Fan of Knives for Wolf, and using a different cube-slot.

      We have a fix for the recent problems players have been having with whispering others, specifically the "Error 3" message. There's still no eta for the party joining bug, however, as the last fix didn't actually work. We did find out that the party issue will require and actual patch instead of a simple hotfix, so it might be a while until we see it.
      Whisper Bug (source)
      Hey all,
      The Whisper Error 3 should be fixed up as of now. If anything comes up where you still continue to see this error, please exit game and start fresh. If it still continues, please let us know!
      Thanks again
      ...
      Hey all,
      We pushed out a fix for the ERROR_3. If people are still seeing it after logging out and back in please let us know.

      Hey Robdoggierob,
      We’re continuing to investigate and internally testing many fixes targeted to squash this bug daily. A bit more difficult to nail down unfortunately, but we have made progress in some areas.
      We’ll continue to update, but most likely this will require a new build to be produced rather than a hotfix. Once we have a fix that is 100% internally, we’ll communicate it out to everyone.
      Thanks again

      It seems there's been a major shift in community management for Diablo 3 as we've noticed over the last couple of weeks, as Associate producer Matthew Cederquist is replying to basically every relevant active thread on the official forums. After a long time of very few responses and poor communication with the community, it seems the Diablo 4 reveal re-prioritized things and we now have some proper blue representation for D3. While a lot of these replies are just "we are aware and working on it", we can't really expect a lot more from the very small dev team still working on D3 so this shift is pretty significant if you take that into consideration. Today we have a look at the topics we've gotten a reply on over the holiday weekend - an upcoming brawl leveling trick, the party XP bug, 10,000+ paragon level Barbarians and Crusaders, addons and bots and, of course, Angel squishiness.
      Matthew has been very active over the holiday break and responded to a whole host of popular topics, starting with an interesting one - it seems there's a way to get to 70 in around an hour through brawling! You just set the difficulty to T6 in a 4 player party and brawl away until you ding max level pretty fast. Obviously speed leveling isn't anything new as players can be power leveled by others very quickly anyway, but apparently this method wasn't intended and will be fixed, as you don't need a higher level player to boost you for it to work.
      Brawling XP Fix (source)
      Hey all,
      This definitely isn’t the way we want players to level in the game and will most likely be fixed for the next patch.
      Then there's the party joining bug that was supposed to be fixed a few days ago but apparently wasn't:
      Party Joining Bug (source)
      Thanks everyone for the responses. We’ll continue to look at it and get more things into testing so we can squash this bug.
      Sorry for it taking so long with the holiday weekend and all.
      There's also been a lot of discussion about balance and Barbarians and Crusaders in particular, with two specific examples being used as a debate/whine point on the forums, as one Barb managed a 142 GR within 12 minutes (and of course was used as proof that Barbs are fine) and one Crusader at 146 GR was pointed out as OP. It turns out both of these are non-seasonal and have over 10,000 paragon levels, but Matthew had two very differing comments for them starting with the Barbarian:
      10,000+ Paragon Level Clears (source)
      Hey folks,
      Just to chime in here. At 10,288 Paragon, this specific Barbarian is +1 GR over the proposed balance of the game. Looks like absolute fantastic design and balance to us.
      Thanks for pointing out someone who has immense dedication and awesome gear!
      ...
      Definitely not fantastic design and balance. This one particular Crusader at 10,176 Paragon is about +5 GRs above our expected.
      Something to look into for next patch!
      Not to put too fine a point on it, but at those paragon levels and THAT high a GR clear, with the amount of factors going into builds etc, classes are never EVER going to be that balanced. Not in D3, not in D4 or any other game ever made by anyone. Seriously. People asking for that level of balance in an ARPG are just begging for a watered-down, +0.3% to damage affixes and talents systems, because those are the only ones that can ever be balanced to such a degree. Just accept the fact some classes will be more powerful than others and let there be actual builds and creative uses of them in the damn game and shut the hell up on this eternal balance quest that's basically ruining RPGs.
      Ok, not sure sure where that rant came from but I stand by it!
      Then it's on to a discussion on addons/mods, with TurboHud being the focus of discussion, and it seems we'll be getting a larger post on the topic of mods soon as well, with bots being in the cross hairs as well:
      TurboHud Addon (source)
      Hey Dtune -
      TurboHud has some cool features, but on the other hand, has some features that give players more of an advantage. In the past, TurboHud fell by the wayside and didn’t catch the attention of anti-cheat programs.
      We’ll have more to say on this in the very near future, but to answer your question, TurboHud is seen as a program that should not be used in the game in its current state.
      As for bots, their time is coming.
      And finally we have an answer to the age old question: Just how squishy are Angels? It seems some players aren't happy with the 500 killstreak ability proc as their feathered friends die too quickly to the Rift Guardian:
      Angel Squishiness (source)
      Yes. Angels should die to the RG. If untouched, they can also produce massive damage.

      Lilith's Embrace Wings in Diablo III for Virtual Ticket Holders
    • By Stan
      Raxxanterax and his group managed to clear Greater Rift 150 on Day 4 of Season 19 thanks to the latest Seasonal buff.
      The ongoing Season comes with the Pandemonium buff which grants stacks of movement speed and damage and reaching certain killstreak goals will trigger powerful effects which translates into even more damage. The most important ones are geysers at 150 and the meteor showers at 400 kills. Those two have the potential to completely eliminate a pack, so they're using that to their advantage by stacking mobs on top of each other.
      Their Crusader died when he was looking for a pylon and lost his stacks, so it took them almost 6 minutes to kill the Rift Guardian.

      We finally have a fix implemented for the matchmaking problem for party grouping, which was showing parties and players as "not in season", and caused problems for non-seasonal parties as well. The fix apparently wasn't tested a whole lot, but Blizz decided to push it before the holiday weekend, which was probably a good choice.
      Matchmaking (source)
      Players will have to restart their clients to pick up the fix.
      This fix does NOT fix the level 0 or missing class in the friends list or communities. This Fix SHOULD fix the Non-Season and Season party bug. Let us know if you’re still seeing the issue please and thank you in advance
      .... Afternoon -
      We want to be very transparent with this update. We have a fix for the party bug that we’ll be deploying at roughly 1:00PM PST.
      This fix did not get a lot of testing internally, but we wanted to get it out asap before the holiday weekend. We had the choice between waiting till Tuesday, or getting it out today. We chose to take the risk to better the community playing experience. If, for any reason, this causes issues we can revert.
      Thanks again for the patience
