I recently found that Killer Guides (unofficial guides I have been using for other mmos) provides an in-depth breakdown of all the Demon Hunter skills, builds and leveling strategies. After a quick scan, the guide seems to be quite solid with all the necessary sections and read ups. If you’re interested, here a link to the Diablo 3 demon hunter manual itself.
For this Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Guide, a breakdown of the six categories of active skills has been laid out. Also, the Hatred and Discipline requirements are stated to give players an idea of what a balancing act playing a Demon Hunter can be. This diablo 3 class unleashes their power offensive skills in the form of hatred against these hellish minions and control themselves with discipline. In order to attain the skill necessary for balancing hatred and discipline in harder game levels, the passive skills, along with all the many Skill Runes must be taken into account as well.
Primary Attacking skills. All cost 3 Hatred: Hungering Arrow, Entangling Shot, Bola Shot, and Grenades.
Secondary: Impale (25 Hatred), Rapid Fire (20 Hatred up front, and 10 more during the channeling process), Chakram (10 Hatred), and Elemental Arrow (10 Hatred).

ling tips. Make sure to take the time to not only learn how to farm mobs, save gold, and level quickly, but examine the auction house as well. At serious end-game levels, content is very gear dependent. Furthermore, this can’t be stated seriously enough, but make sure to experiment with all the many different Skill Runes, and save different epic gear sets that compliment certain specs for certain circumstances, like farming vs. questing. Finally, don’t neglect taking advantage of a good Diablo 3 Demon Hunter Guide!
