Hunter questions Hi, I'm planning on making a hunter and had some questions for you pro's out there. I'm a bit tossed up as to whether to make a pure hunter, or a huntermentalist using fissure/volc. OK on to my questions. 1.) How much does the spirit wolf AR bonus help? If I want to go with fissure/volc, and max them, I pretty much have to go with 20 dire/20 griz/ 20 HOW /20fissure /20 volc, and that doesn't leave anything left for other skills ( I never really go beyond lvl90). So, what is my bear/wolf's chance to hit things in hell with a lvl 1 (~10 with skills) spirit wolf bonus? If it is 50% then I obviously need to sink some points into spirit wolves. 2.) Bow decision: Even with a high dex and a maxed HOW I'm guessing that a hunter's AR is generally pretty low. Thus, the 2 bows that I was considering using are Goldstrike (upped eventually) with its 100-150% AR bonus, which hits 10 frames shaeled and with 40% oias. On the downside, this bow upped to Hydra requires 134 str. The other is Eaglehorn with its ITD, higher base damage, and AR bonus (which helps with bosses where ITD doesn't work). Eaglehorn hits 11 frames with shael and 50% oias, and only requires 97 str. to equip. Other bow possibilities I looked at were: Upped Witchwild String - the mods look great, and its not hard to get to 10 frames, but there is no AR bonus here, plus its hard to decide if the damage here is as good. Forgetting the amp (which I'll rarely get to cast as a hunter), the deadly strike seems to somewhat make up for its lower base damage, but its hard for me to really tell. Buriza - I can get to 12 frames here pretty easy, and damage isn't bad, but the str. req. is too high if its upped, and there's no significant AR help here either. Demon Machine - Easy to get to 11 frames, and a semi-significant AR boost here, but the damage seems too low, and the str. req. to high when upped. Also, I read about how the blast radius for exploding arrow no longer carries crushing blow/poison/etc., and that is the only part of the arrow that auto-hits (the fire dmg of a lvl 6 exploding arrow). Kuko - same as with demon - no longer does exploding arrow do wonderful things in 1.10. Windforce - I wish I had one. ;-) No, really even if I did, without AR bonus, I'm not sure if it would be the best bow for me. Please let me know what you think...are spirit wolves necessary, and which bow would you go with? I want to avoid wearing angelic set stuff so I can wear + skills items for my summons. Thanks.
