Diablo 3 RoS – T1 Demon Hunter – Entry Level Lightning Build

Today I want to start a 5 video progression series from T1 to T5 for those either new to Demon Hunter or looking to play one in Seasons. In my experience it takes (on average) about 50-100 hours starting from scratch to acquire your endgame set and become relatively efficient in T6, but in the interim you still need a build and gearing strategy.

In this video I go over the build, paragon (only 40 total points), entry level gear (no set bonuses or legendary gems), and show this Ball Lightning variation in action. You can make it work quite well with less than 700k sheet damage and under 5 million toughness, facetanking nearly everything. Enjoy and be on the lookout for T2!

  1. Nice build! A sith lighting knight love it. Why did you pick Spitfire Sentry over Polar Station Sentry? Why did you pick Vault Tumble instead of Vault Cinders? I like the extra fire damage.

  2. i've been playing t1 for about a week with some build ideas based around elements and i agree, without the right setup you're gonna be wiped out. it's almost happened to me a few times with my monk and witch doctor.

    my problem is that i'm greedy. i want high toughness so i've been using the ashera set. and i want more exp so i'm using the cain set, along with stones of jordan for more elite damage and rings of royal grandure to cut down the needed set items.

    other than that it was mostly whatever i had on hand to fit my build. which was a lightning build for the barbarian and monk, a 4 element build for the wizard and a krider shot fire and ice build for the demon hunter (i wanted to keep cluster arrow)

    things are still up in the air for the witch doctor but since i just got the plans for griswolds perfection 2nite i could rearrange some things if i wanted to.

    but at the same time i dont want to spend too much time on crafting and re-rolling cause if i do i'll throw in the towel and not play this game for a month like i did last time

  3. You, my man are absolutely awesome!

    Even that the game got extreme boring, you keep on finding awesome content to put on. I just happened to create DH on Asia server this will be very helpful.

    Keep up your awesome work and I wish you million subs soon 🙂

  4. I suggest using a witchdoctor to get shards and gamble marauder pieces & T&T'S. 
    Witchdoctors are the easiest characters to gear up for T6, you are pretty much T3 ready off the start.
