No, you are correct in assuming the 2 sockets are a top priority. I will fix that :)

Do you know if this will continue to be viable in 2.4.1?

 

Hey, yes - I will introduce several modifications to the build in the coming days to reflect its 2.4.1 state, but a support DH is still viable.

Why is crit chance important on this zDPS build? I could not find any proccs of crits in the build?

It isn't important for you as a support, but you're bringing Crit Chance for the DPS through your own skills and gems.

I have a question about augmenting this build's gear. Do I understand it right that for this build, dexterity is not a consistent priority like it is, for example, with the Multishot build? Shall I just follow (as closely as possible) the stats recommendations piece by piece?

There are a lot of considerations when it comes to each piece, as there are so many different things that can go on them.  With augmentations, you're really only choosing between Dexterity and Vitality, so simplify your task by just looking at the stat recommendations for the paragon points.  In this case, it looks like Vitality is the way to go.

Though I am wondering why Dexterity is listed as a priority on the weapon and quiver, when that's opposite from the paragon points and the whole rest of the guide.  Deadset, is that a typo?

Thank you so much! It's important to make up one's mind the right way, since augmentations (once done) are difficult to fix. As far as paragon points, I will probably experiment along the Dexterity / Vitality line. At the moment, all my paragons from the 1st tab are Dexterity (except for the 25% speed increase). I have 1230 points, and with descent dps'ers I practically never die up to 87-88 GR. Since Dexterity is not only damage but also armor, it would be nice find the proper balance between "raw" health points and armor.

I didn't' notice until this post that they changed dexterity into armor instead of dodge chance.  I'm only two years behind... That's what I get for never playing Demon Hunters and only recently finding a Monk build I like. :D

Anyway, I think you are on to a good idea with using your paragon points to experiment.  You have enough points to be worth several augmentations, and you can easily swap them between Dex and Vitality.  Since you already get armor from all your items, and armor gives diminishing returns as it goes up, my bet is most of your points will end up in vitality.  But that's just a guess.

I think you're right as far as vitality. I just tried to reassign the points in the first tab towards vitality. I tried it once in GR 85. The impression was that my health didn't even try to decrease at all! So, I will probably augment all the gear to vitality. At present my health points are close to 2M. Maybe, as I go higher, I will have to slightly re-roll some pieces to CDR and hatred cost reduction...

Again, thank you

Having a lot of fun with this build, but if another support character has nemesis bracers what would be a good alternative for the armor section of Kanai's cube?

I would go for, in that order: Leoric's Crown (more frequent Wolf Companion actives), Hunter's Wrath (faster spread of Chain Gang), St. Archew's Gage (more damage mitigation).

Does the 2.4.2 weapon change mean that Marked for Death from Calamity is not longer added to Marked for Death  from the skill ?

Exactly. Calamity now simply applies a generic MfD, and will inherit your rune (making it a bit pointless as a consequence).

Have you considered the Action Shot Rune for Vault? Guaranteed crits on the shots it fires means it can be used to squeeze out some extra health globes.

This message is being mass-posted over the Diablo threads currently open for feedback on the site:

I will be reviewing all missed/non-answered comments and answering them, as well as passing on any information. I will also be archiving any older threads that are no longer relevant to our current displayed guides. 

Threads that are staying will be renamed to better fit the guide they are actually being used as a feedback section for, since some names are heavily outdated. 

Please bear with me while I work my way through all the threads. Thanks for your patience!

      Diablo 3 players are getting some goodies from the Diablo Immortal launch, as a brand new set of wings and a pet are available to claim in the game for free!

      Diablo 3 celebrates 10 years today. Blizzard announced they're making Echoing Nightmare a permanent feature in the game and a mid-season buff will result in double bounties from now until Season 26 ends.
      You'll also receive double twice the Horadric Caches you would normally receive after completing 5 bounties.
      (Source)
      Exactly 10 years ago today, brave Nephalem arrived in the town of New Tristram to investigate a falling star. This discovery would give way to a divine ally and a quest to stop a sinister plot to destroy Sanctuary and the High Heavens. Even after the final blow was struck, and Diablo defeated, these same valiant Nephalem continued to protect those in need. We—and Sanctuary—thank you for your decade-worth of valor, dedication, and your vanquishing of endless nightmarish threats to have been birthed by the Burning Hells.
      Remember, this 10-year milestone for Diablo III was made possible by YOU, Nephalem, many of whom have spent countless hours demon-slaying, looting, and creating memorable moments to look back on. To show our undying appreciation for the support of more than 65 million Nephalem worldwide over the past 10 years, we have an exciting announcement for the Echoing Nightmare and will be providing a mid-season buff. But first, we want to thank you once more for celebrating the 10th anniversary of Diablo III with us!
      Echoing Nightmare Update

      Since Season 26 began, many Nephalem have sought to avenge their fallen allies in the Echoing Nightmare. We have received positive feedback around the Echoing Nightmare and are truly glad to see you’ve enjoyed battling the horrors of Nephalem’s past while gaining experience and powerful loot along the way.
      Therefore, the Echoing Nightmare will become a permanent feature in Diablo III. Creating challenging, new, and exciting end-game experiences is always top of mind for us, so we’re excited to be keeping this experience around for good. This experience will be available for year-round play. If you have not had the opportunity to try the Echoing Nightmare out yet, get a taste of what it entails from our Season 26 blog.
      Mid-Season Double Bounties Event

      The reward for hunting down some of Sanctuary’s most wanted just got a little sweeter! All bounties will be doubled from now until Season 26 ends. Here’s a breakdown of how you’ll have the chance to score more Legendary loot, such as the coveted Ring of Royal Grandeur.
      After completing all five bounties in an act, you will be rewarded with twice the Horadric Caches you would normally receive, as dictated by the difficulty level you’re playing on. Reward drop rates will remain unchanged during this event. But more caches mean more opportunities to obtain that essential piece of gear that will bolster your Nephalem’s build. For a refresher on the bounty-exclusive Legendary items that may be obtained from Horadric Caches, check out our Game Guide.
      There are many hardy foes peppered throughout Sanctuary for you to collect the bounty on—venture forth and dare to lay claim to the spoils!
      Immortalize Ten Years of Diablo III
      Diablo III will only turn 10 once. Adorn your wall with imagery forged from the Burning Hell’s finest artisans by getting the exclusive 10th Anniversary Diablo III artwork. Make haste, Nephalem, they’re HOT!
