Indeed. I don't think the guide suggests otherwise.

Why don't use andriel's visage for a helm. It provides a lesser bonus yet more consistent.

I'm wondering how the new Iceblink gem can come into play in this build. If I am correct, the chill effect (and +10% crit chance) of Iceblink paired with bane of the trapped would produce a much higher damage output than zei's and remove the need to shoot as far back as possible. This doesn't take into account any slow effects already made without iceblink slotted, but wouldn't the 10% crit chance (level 25 iceblink) on chilled and frozen targets (which always apply thanks to the all cold damage dealers) be a much higher damage output than the 25% or so max offered by zei's?

 A better gem to replace for Iceblink would be unique_gem_001_x1_demonhunter_male.pngBane of the Powerful, as it adds to the 'Damage Increased By Skills' and Damage Against Elites categories, which are already stacked by other means (rings, demonhunter_passive_ballistics.pngBallistics, etc.) Zei's Stone of Vengeance is an individual multiplier in your total damage calculation, making it one of the strongest choices for ranged based specs.

Wouldn't Impale with the overpenetration rune be a stronger choice than cluster arrow with maelstrom and ballistics?

 

Impale does higher base damage and with the overpenetration rune it has a straight line AoE. It costs half the hatred of cluster arrow meaning it's spammable way more and which basically equalizes it to the 100% damage boost ballistics gives. This makes the ballistics passive replacable by the steady aim passive, which would only add even more to the bonus damage Zei's gives.

Wait. Why not cube Pride's Fall? What benefit does Cindercoat give in a cold build? Why not have Focus and Restraint, with Convection of Elements cubed for farming/multiplayer and Unity cubed when you need it? I don't understand

This will get fixed, as I will transition the guide from its current Cold state into a Fire build. Sorry for the temporarily confusing state!

Any suggestion about using extracted armor passive buff :

 

EITHER  Hunter's Wrath or The Cloak of the Garwulf.

 

Would appreciate it very much.

 

P.S. I use Cold Sentry Build skillfully designed and generously shared by Deadset

Hunter's Wrath could lead to some interesting options for an Elemental Arrow build, so I vote for that - although I'm thinking along the lines of a Ball Lightning variant, with cubed Meticulous Bolts and Convention of Elements.

Dreadset is there anyway to keep the cold build, or is it just obsolete to the other builds. Could Iceblink (insead of bane of powerful) be used as a gem. Frostburn be used as an "Armor Power"(instead of Cindercoat cause that doesn't work). And Maybe elemental arrow frost arrow (instead of evasive fire...though hatred regen might be an issue). Cold damage build would be fun to see. Hopefully you can work something out Dreadset. Thanks for your time!!!!

Heya, I would love to give you some encouragement, but the set itself is lacking at the moment and elemental variations can hardly make it perform up to par with Unhallowed Essence and Natalya :( It might receive a rework in Patch 2.4, but until then I would focus on a fire variation of Marauder.

I'd like to know why the Tumble rune for Vault is taken over Trail of Cinders? When using Cindercoat and putting fire damage on gear, it seems more logical to me to have Vault be a fire ability and let it add some, even if only a little, extra damage.

why changed to physical though? damage does not depend on element type, just on the element damage increase. is it because of the actual cluster arrow rune behavior?

also (from 2.4 patch notes):

 

  • Skill Rune - Maelstrom
    • Explosion damage increased from 550% to 650% weapon damage
    • Number of rockets decreased from 5 to 3
    • Healing per rocket increased from 1% to 2%
  • Skill Rune - Shooting Stars
    • Explosion damage increased from 550% to 650% weapon damage
    • Number of rockets decreased from 3 to 2

 

as we can see maelstrom and shooting stars (explosion) deal same amount of damage BUT maelstrom releases 3 rockets 3*450%=1350% while shooting stars releases 2 rockets 2*600=1200% so maelstrom does more overall damage.

correct me if i'm wrong.

Simply put, Physical does better in Elite and Rift guardian fights, as rockets from a single Cluster Arrow do not stack against a single target! :) You can read some additional math about it here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/16202240944

Please, say a decent alternative for Taeguk on this build, because i simply hate it with all my hearth and soul.

 

I also hate Taeguk. I'm using Bane of the Powerful just now.

"The active pop also nets you the a.png Spider Companion slow, the b.png Boar Companion taunt, the e.png Ferret Companion health globe grab and the c.png Wolf Companion 30% damage increase."

 

This is severely wrong. You only net the active benefit of the rune you have selected, NOT all pets on the field. Obvious mark that the writer of this guide does not fully understand how the DH set functions.

      In this week's Challenge Rift, we're dealing with the new Wizard Hydra set.
      EU Challenge Rift 144
      Use Storm Armor and Familiar at the beginning of the rift to buff up.
      Black Hole should be used on Elites and to stack up enemies. Teleport around and let HydraArcane Hydras do the work. You always want to have up five hydras.
      For the layout and additional tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 144
      At the beginning of the rift, activate your Magic WeaponConduit and Storm ArmorScramble.
      Activate Slow TimeTime Warp on Elites. You can use TeleportWormhole twice within a short time frame, so make sure to use that for moving around efficiently. 
      Black HoleAbsolute Zero should be used to gather up enemies, otherwise, just summon Hydras.
      Check out the video below Raxxanterax for more details about this week's Challenge Rift!

      The first Challenge Rift of Season 20 has arrived and we have a Barbarian utilizing the new Frenzy set in both regions.
      EU Challenge Rift 143
      Activate Battle Rage for more damage and War Cry for more toughness when you enter the rift. Immediately start attacking mobs to get the 5 stacks of Frenzy going. You need to maintain them which is not that hard, just keep attacking. Use Furious Charge to move around. Try to utilize the Shield Pylon from the first floor up to the fourth where the mob type deals less damage.
      For the layout and additional tips check out Mnemonic's video below.
      US Challenge Rift 143
      The Flavor of Time is going to double the duration of your pylons and Bane of the Powerful provides a damage-increasing buff after killing an elite pack. When killing yellow elites, it means you must defeat all their minions too for it to trigger.
      You activate Wrath of the BerserkerInsanity, Threatening ShoutIntimidate, and War CryImpunity all the time. Battle RageBloodshed should be cast just twice because the buff lasts long.
      Other than that, you use Furious Charge to move around and fish for Elite packs and keep 10 stacks of Frenzy up.
      Check out the video by Raxxanterax for the layout of this week's Challenge Rift.

      With the current server issues still affecting EU players, we've put together a quick tutorial on how to start Diablo 3 without ever needing to open the Battle.net client!
      As many of you have most likely already noticed, with barely any time left to go until the start of Season 20 in Diablo 3 for EU players, there are currently issues with the Battle.net app for a large number of players, regardless of which game they are hoping to play.
      While WoW players can simply boot up using the .exe file in their program files, things are slightly more difficult for Diablo players, as the .exe file will normally just start up the Battle.net app.
      To avoid this problem and log into Diablo despite the ongoing issues, follow the steps below:
      Create a shortcut to your Diablo .exe file (not the launcher .exe). You should use the 64-bit version in /x64 if you normally use this version. Go into the properties of the shortcut and edit the shortcut target. Add " -launch" to the end of it, including the space at the start, but without quotation marks. Save your changes and use the shortcut - Diablo 3 will start up shortly afterwards. You will need to log in with your account details and, if you have an Authenticator, you will need to enter the code manually. Make sure to double check the region you are logging into with the options menu on the log-in screen. While this method is not perfect, it should get you into the game in time for the new season! There are a few issues that you may run into, which can be solved as follows:
      My game is taking too long to load. This is completely normal when booting in this manner, just let the game load up. If it is taking a really long time, you may be trying to start up the wrong version of Diablo (32-bit vs. 64-bit). The 64-bit version can be found in /x64. My game stopped responding. Go into Task Manager and end any Battle.net or Diablo 3 launcher tasks. These cause it to stop working/stop loading. I never downloaded the latest patch. Unfortunately, this method only works if your game is up-to-date. It will not let you into the game if you need to download a patch. Once your game is up and running, make sure to check out our updated class guides for Season 20!
