[Top 5] Diablo 3 Best Demon Hunter Builds Right Now

Diablo 3 Best Demon Hunter Build
The Demon Hunter class got a HUGE upgrade this season.

Does the new Gears of Dreadlands Demon Hunter set make for the best build?

Demon Hunters are known for the wide variety of ways that they can assassinate hoards of demons from afar.  There is nothing more satisfying to me than sitting back and blasting arrows into droves of enemies and watching them fall before even laying a finger on me.  There are many options when it comes to building a Disciplined, Hatred spewing machine but if you want to take your Demon Hunter to the next level try out one of the Top 5 Demon Hunter builds below.  

5.  Natalya’s Vengeance/Rapid Fire

  • Utilizing runes that grant area damage to Rapid Fire (Bombardment) and Rain of Vengeance (Dark Cloud), this build Destroys enemies thanks to buffs from the Natalya’s Set.  These buffs cause any damage dealt within 10 seconds after casting Rain of Vengeance to be raised 14,000% in addition to reducing damage taken by 60%.  This allows for a player to generate tons of damage very efficiently when coordinated with Rain of Vengeance.
  • Boar companion increases health regeneration 10k in case you do take damage.
  • Sin Seekers removes the cost of channeling rapid fire.
  • Wojahnni Assaulter in Kanai’s Cube increases rapid-fire, damage 95% while channeling, stackable 30 times.

4.  Legacy of Dreams Rapid Fire

  • The Legacy of Dreams build is similar to our number 5 build in that it focuses a good bit on the use of Rapid Fire.  The difference comes into play when considering all of the options you gain when not having to complete a set.  This build is extremely versatile and can be modified according to playstyle.
  • The Flavor of Time Amulet doubles the amount of time you receive a Pylon’s effect.
  • Fire Damage is both buffed and costs less due to Cindercoat and Magefist combo.
  • Rapid Fire has no channeling cost.

3.  Shadow’s Mantle Impale

  • Another versatile build with tons of options, this setup can be built to Speed Farm or Rift Run.  The best (IMO) is the Elite Hunting style that isolates an enemy, deals explosive damage to that one target, and moves on.  All of the versions of this build revolve are a very speedy playstyle that dances nimbly around the battlefield.
  • Shadow’s Mantle buffs Impale 75,000% damage to the first enemy hit.
  • Additionally, all damage is increased by 6000% by having a melee weapon equipped. (Karlei’s Point is a good option as it further buffs Impale)
  • Chain of Shadows Belt makes striking major damage then retreating to safety easier by removing the cost of Vault after casting Impale.

2.  Unhallowed Essence Multishot

  • If you prefer AoE damage to clear lower level adversaries to Elite Hunting, this build is for you.  The Unhallowed Essence build provides buffs to many ranged attacks and allows you to keep crowds at bay as you disintegrate them.  Like the builds lower in the list it also can be modified to be a Speed Farming build.
  • Zei’s Stone of Vengeance rewards you for long-range attacks with  up to 20% increased damage when 50 yards from enemies.
  • Damage is boosted both when spending and generating resources
  • Crowd Control attacks keep enemies at bay to further encourage long-range attacks.

1. Gears of Dreadlands Hungering arrow. 

  • I have said it before, I will say it again.  GEARS OF DREADLANDS IS PURE AWESOME.  The combination of the Gears of Dreadlands set and the legendaries in the build create a devastating weapon of both accuracy and agility.  This build is easy to use and rewards a playstyle that is similar to the Whirlwind Barbarian.
  • Strafe (Drifting Shadow Rune) Allows the player to move freely around the map and shoots the most recently used Primary.
  • Hungering Arrow is guaranteed to pierce and deals successively more damage per pierce.
  • Cull the Weak plus Fan of Knives (Bladed Armor Rune) add damage to chilled enemies and buffs defense.
