1.08 Rapid Fire + Strafe Build This is a post-1.08 patch build that combines rapid fire and strafe and is designed for MP10. In the fields of misery or dahlgur oasis, I use strafe to quickly herd up to 50-100 monsters into a ball, and then lay down valley of death and rapid fire to kill all of them in 10 seconds. Skill Calculator: http://battle.net/d3/en/calculator/demon-hunter#cSghRV!Xfe!ccYZZZ Active Skills: Rapid Fire - Bombardment Strafe - Demolition Preparation - Punishment Shadow Power - Gloom Marked for Death - Valley of Death Companion - Bat Companion Passive Skills: Nightstalker Archery Perfectionist This build doesn't need a hatred generator. The hatred consumption rate of both rapid fire and strafe scales with attack speed. If you gear your items around having as low an attack speed as possible without sacrificing DPS (crafted bracers instead of lacunis, manticore instead of calamity, etc) you can easily achieve permanent rapid fire and can contiuously strafe for 20 seconds. When you are low on hatred, use preparation-punishment to restore it. Rapid fire has a very poor proc rate, so use strafe-demolition and nightstalker to replenish discipline. Both rapid fire and strafe are snapshotting skills, meaning that when you begin to channel the skill, it will use your stats at the start (including life steal from shadow power) for as long as you continue the attack. Typically, I hit gloom, strafe for 3-4 seconds to herd monsters into a good spot, drop valley of death and start channeling rapid fire before gloom expires. As long as you never stop dealing damage, the life steal will allow you to facetank almost anything. Gear recommendations: You have a lot of flexibility. The basic principle is to maximize your DPS and EHP with the minimum amount of attack speed. For instance, my setup nets 220k+ dps / 700k+ EHP with 1.43 attacks per second. Getting 10-20 discipline and hatred regen from items also helps things run more smoothly. You may also find that using a godly black rare crossbow + inna's favor gives similar DPS to manticore + witching hour at a much lower attack speed.

Other good options worth mentioning are guardian turret for survivability, vault combined with tactical advantage, caltrops - bait the trap combined with cull the weak, rain of vengeance, and smoke screen. Hope you have fun with this build and come up with a few of your own improvements!
