Guest Hello

I feel like there is a lot of possible variations in this build, but wouldn't swapping the Vengeance rune to From the Shadows and exchanging Nemesis Bracers for Ancient Parthan Defenders be more consistent? The only activator for Bane of the Trapped is Fan of Knives (as far as I can tell), which is not really enough in my opinion, because it is only for 1 second. The bracer slot would also be used better, as Nemesis Bracers is really only a good choice for Elite hunting builds because it doesn't add anything to combat.

Having Leech and Sentry: Guardian Turret instead of Shadow Power: Gloom and Numbing Traps seems to make more sense to me, because then the build's recovery wouldn't require spending lots of discipline to maintain (even with Preparation offsetting some of that amount), though it would sacrifice some toughness and LpH for more consistency.

Leaving out Shadow Power would then negate the need for Preparation, and that skill slot could be used for Smoke Screen: Special Recipe (or Vanishing Powder), and having an invulnerability skill can be very important at very high GRs. Smoke Screen is also a cheaper activator for Elusive RIng than Shadow Power.

Of course, these are just some suggestions from my perspective; the only skills that are really irreplaceable are Rapid Fire and Vengeance. The other 4 skills could be some mix of Smoke Screen, Shadow Power, Caltrops, Companion, Fan of Knives, Sentry, Marked for Death, Vault or Preparation. Even the passives have some room for choice (Leech, Perfectionist, or even Brooding), though good ancient Hellfire Amulets are hard to craft, so just taking whatever comes by is good enough I suppose, even if the 5 best passives may not be available.

Overall, there's a lot of skill options in this build, and I'm interested in how it will evolve over time.

It's because the Swamp Land WadersSwamp Land Waders give a neutral 20% elemental damage which is a huge boost compared to many other legendary legs (especially for Demon hunters).

Guest Question

Does Rapid Fire: Bombardment trigger Numbing Traps, or is Fan of Knives the only trigger for Numbing Traps in this build?

It should, Hellcat procs on Grenades of all types, it would be inconsistent if Numbing don't.

Unity can be substituted with a fire-rolled Stone of Jordan for damage. 

You can use any pants to activate the LoN bonus (including set ones if they do not form a bonus). But don't forget: this is a BiS list, and thus it includes the BiS pants, SLWs, the only pants giving damage boost for the build. 

LoN already demands a higher level of dedication, Leveling a WD to 50 for the pants is the smallest of it. (you can reroll it later.) The only thing that can be a problem if your Account is full.

In the gems section it is written: "Bane of the Trapped is a potent source of additional damage, as it is its own multiplier in your total damage calculation. The gem will be procced by Zei's Stone of Vengeance, Thrill of the Hunt, crowd control secondary stats on your gear (Slow %, Freeze %), or Wind Chill in speedfarming." This is a cut&past refuse, I think...
