Post update: May 16, 2012 : Started my Demon Hunter with alot of research and this awesome online guide I just bought that came with free updates. If you’re like me and have limited time to actually craft out a build, I would suggest reading this Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Guide (might post snippets of the guide if possible as well) Stay Tuned!
Learning of Sanctuary’s existence, grotesque demon spawns ravaged through the land wiping out the weak leaving nothing but smouldering villages scorched to the ground. Those who survived are forever scarred by their horrific experiences. One of these unfortunate victims witnessed the slaughter of her family first hand. Left alone and afraid, she was taken in by other survivors who have sworn to rid the world of the creatures of Hell. These Demon Hunters, as they are called, forged the young girl into a fearless weapon to exact revenge upon the dark forces that prey on the innocent.
The Demon Hunter’s intense training has prepared her to face evil in all of its forms. Well versed in ranged weaponry and crafting, she can hunt down and annihilate hellspawn with an array of crossbows and explosive devices.
The Demon Hunter’s killing sprees are fuelled by Hatred which allows her to quickly dispatch enemies quickly. To efficiently use the Demon Hunter, she must create a balance between Hatred and Discipline. Discipline regenerates over time thus, once it runs out the Demon Hunter may be faced with perilous battles ahead of her.
Her ranged weapons can launch entangling shots that slow enemies so she can easily defeat them. When opponents lose in on her, the Demon Hunter can vault to safety and fire volatile grenades to decimate her foes. The Demon Hunter waits in the shadows placing traps carefully, waiting for any unsuspecting demon spawn to fall into the trap. However, if she is found herself cornered, she will unleash a plethora of arrows against her enemies with deadly lethality.
To traverse through Sanctuary is a dangerous game of hunter becoming the hunted; however, if you believe you possess the capabilities of enveloping yourself in darkness and discharging arrows on a whim, the Demon Hunter will suit you. Yet, if you chose to cleanse the land with your holy light, the D3 Monk will also be a formidable opponent to chose against the beasts of the Burning Hells.
