Hey guys! Welcome to our Demon Hunter Speedfarming Guide – which basically details the various build changes to your Demon Hunter to better facilitate speedfarming.

Why not discuss the best build? Well, the best build doesn’t just fall into your lap, doesn’t it? This guide covers the CONVERSION OF ANY SETUP to be AS SPEEDFARMY AS POSSIBLE. So you can have more efficient farming at any point in the game. However, we do also have the “best” speedfarmy build(s) per class as a separate guide.

Please see: D3 General Speedfarming Demon Hunter Fastest Speedfarm Build.

Demon Hunter Speedfarming Skills

Vault-Tumble: is likely the most generic mobility DH skill around. And for good reason, not only does it cover ground fast, it’s relatively cheap. Most builds include it anyway (Speed or regular). Cindercoat + Trail of Cinders rune is a notable combo here.

Smoke ScreenDisplacement: Is actually not bad either, it feels a little more fluid. To be honest it’s a preference between these two. It feels like you travel quite a bit further than 2 Vaults, but the cost increase is significant.

Preparation: and its various runes can help you maintain Discipline – this directly helps you out with mobility! Restoring Discipline is an oft-forgotten aspect of DH speed builds. If your build can fit this in – it would be wise to do so.

Vengeance-Seethe: Is a must have for speedfarming, while I avoid mentioning DPS options in these guides it is notable due to this being the highest Hatred gain per second skill DH can use. This directly affects clear speed. Of course, used in tandem with Dawn.


 

Demon Hunter Speedfarming Passives

Tactical Advantage: The best single change any DH build can make to increase speed of clears. 60% is massive, and we will be Vaulting or Smokescreening as much as we can, anyway.

Blood Vengeance: DH’s struggle with resource generation and this pseudo Reaper’s Wraps addresses that quite easily. Kill a pack -> Heal (Resource -> Repeat. It really does wonders to reducing downtime. It’s significantly better than Reaper’s Wraps since it restores Discipline, too.

Hot Pursuit: is the worst of the bunch here. 20% is okay, but doesn’t pull it’s weight for the slot. Only put this if you have some pretty strong gear, as I feel slotting this to remove one or two of the DPS passives might hamper your clear time.

No other passives are directly related to speedfarming – you should, of course, choose the best DPS passives for your build after these. Typically these would be:

Cull the Weak – often paired up with Thrill of the Hunt. Large damage boost with no thought whatsoever. If you have a highly leveled Bane of the Trapped, might consider dropping Cull and keeping Thrill to make space.

Ambush and Steady Aim are probably the next best, respectively.


Demon Hunter Speedfarming Items

Danetta’s Revenge – this set is really good since it’s quite a bit easier to get Hatred rather than Discipline. Use it with the previously mentioned Cindercoat + Trail of Cinders rune on Vault. You can pretty much Vault forever.

In-geom for Demon Hunters? Is only so-so. You can there’s only a few value moves here…

Cluster Arrow-Maelstrom is slightly better, but use whichever you have better gear for. I like Maelstrom since it triggers Trapped more easily, and I like the Cold build better overall.

Help! I can't use those skills because they're from the same category! (Turn On Elective Mode)

If you’re not allowed to put two skills on your bar because they’re from the same category – FEAR NOT! This isn’t a bug or a permanent in-game restriction. You simply have to CHECK ON ELECTIVE MODE, via Esc > Options > Gameplay > Elective Mode!

Binding Force Move to Mousewheel up & down is a value change that every player should make IMO. It prevents misclicks and skill misfires, and forces you to move to where otherwise an enemy might be.
