Times are a changin boys with the upcoming season. No longer are DH 2 hit champs (1 monster hit, dh hits the ground). This is a build I theory crafted and only partially tested so far (due to not having all the gear collected yet).

100% Support DH

D3Planner - DH Tank Build (click here)

Concepts

Solely for DH
- 1.4 billion toughness (while attacking)
- 626 million recovery
- 65% armor buff (Evasive Fire - Hardened rune + Fan of Knives - Bladed Armor rune)
- Tons DR (bracers, belt, gems, shadow power, aquila cuirass, etc)

Group Buffs
- 85% Damage Increase for players who stand in the circle proc'd from your Occulus Ring
- 35% Damage Increase from Overwhelming Desire
- 30% Damage Increase for 10 seconds (15 second cooldown with 50% cdr) from Companion - Wolf
- 25% Damage Increase from cubed Oddessy's End when used with Entangling Shot - Chain Gang rune
- 20% Damage Increase on each monster (Mark of Death applied from Calamity)
- 25% Monster Damage Reduction (Fan of Knives + Numbing Traps passive)
- 25% Damage Reduction (Sentry - Guardian Turret)

Remarks

- Build is considered a "zDPS" support build.
- I'm not sure what the "meta" will be next season. People are still playing and theorycrafting. I'm not sure if zDPS/supports will be worth having in groups or not since most classes have good surviveability on their own and can actually put out the damage.
- Thoughts, suggestions, comments? I'd like to hear them! Post below, I'll be making lots of theorycraft/testing and guides for DH until next season rolls out!

Video

- I have DPS gear on in this video and do not have items cubed or worn that should be there, and do not have the stats or optimal gear for what should be run with this build.

Yeah this was long ago on the PTR. Not really a use for this this season.
