Demon Hunter: Dual Wield crossbows or quiver?

#1DropDeadFred_Posted 5/28/2012 4:21:19 PM
Is it better to use 2 1h crossbows, a quiver, or try and get a 2h bow or crossbow?

when dual wielding the 2nd wep is just a stat stick

I think for endgame, the 15% damage passive for bow+quiver is far better than the stats you can get for dual wielding.

right now I"m using 1hand cross bow + quiver as it gives the best bump in stats for me, so my suggestion, whatever gives you the best dps/hp combo

Dual-wielding will often be superior if you manage to find two great 1-handers. In many cases finding a good Bow and Quiver will be easier though.

Late game dual-wielding excels more with crit builds with Sharpshooter.

actually 1h xbow + quiver also gets the same 15% speed bonus as 2 1h xbows.

if consider the fact that you gotta have the dps ratings of each handbow at par with each other, i think just using a quiver saves you much more money, with more or less similar stats and dps.

I saw quivers with 20% increased attack speed.

But the whole point of DW hand crossbows cant be negated by anything: it looks cooler.

2 hand cross bow for me right now but I am waiting for a solid bow.

for endgame, id rather use 2 socketed 1h crossbows to get a bonus 200% crit damage not taking into account any modifiers or skills. when your running perfect gear and have a high crit rate which all characters need, i guarantee you it out dps's a 15% flat damage boost a bow receives.

i dont know what the damages numbers on each weapon type max at, but it would have to be significantly better on a bow or 2h crossbow to beat 2 perfect one hand crossbows.



but i dont think anyone is at the point where their weps are "perfect" (as high as damage can get) and because of this, its go with whatever is best at that point in time.

That with the extra crit damage from using crossbows, you are pretty much set.
