Which class are you going to roll once Diablo 3 goes live? Do you want to get right up in the faces of your enemies – letting your melee weapons and fists do the talking – like a Barbarian or Monk..? Maybe you want the company of fierce minions, or perhaps you want to take out your enemies using arcane power – like a Witch Doctor or Wizard..?
Or…could it be that you prefer to attack your enemies from range, using a mix of powerful ranged weaponry, devices, and skilled tactical maneuverability..? If that’s the case, then a Demon Hunter is for you.
Diablo 3 Demon Hunter
Playing a Demon Hunter is pure poetry in motion. Using a mix of ranged attacks, snares and tactical defensive abilities, the Demon Hunter is capable of handling any encounter. However, the trick to playing one effectively is to properly manage the Demon Hunter’s resource system. A Demon Hunter uses a mix of two resources – Hatred and Discipline – to fuel her in combat. The Demon Hunter taps into her abundance of Hatred in order to deal damage to her foes, while using her trained Discipline to escape them.
Here’s a brief featurette showcasing the Demon Hunter class. There’s a short introduction, offering some Demon Hunter lore, followed by a demonstration of the various Demon Hunter attacks and defensive abilities. In the video you’ll also get a good idea of how the Demon Hunter class resource system works.
