The male Demon Hunter is one of the more difficult classes in Diablo 3 to level up and start playing effectively. They are similar to the female Human character in that you need to kill plenty of enemies to make them powerful, they also have a few different advantages. For starters the Demon Hunter can be customized by adding the “Gift of the Maze” which allows them to summon more pets at one time. This makes controlling multiple units much easier, but can be costly.
The other main advantage they have over the Human character is their skills like the “Flare shooting”. It can hit targets from far away and do damage with very little maneuvering. The only real problem you will run into is getting hit by multiple shots.
There are some great choices for your talents in Diablo 3. The most useful talents are ones related to dealing extra damage. I recommend getting the “Flare Gun” for faster attack speed and “Flare Shot” for more consistent damage. In fact if you use “Flare Gun” to hit a few times you will generate more power than you will use from the ability.
As for abilities, this class can really shine when in a crowded battle. There are several choices you have to choose from when leveling up this class. I like “Duskfire” for when it’s not raining or when the enemy has a variety of pets to target you. It’s a great skill that can really help get rid of some key characters in the game. Just don’t use it too much.
The “Mana Drain” is another skill that can be helpful, but only when you’re not being attacked. This will slow the enemy down so you can keep hitting them with the guns. Keep this in mind when playing against a group of opponents. If you are being attacked repeatedly the mana drain may not be enough to handle the situation.
Demon hunters have a few options when choosing weapons to use. The “Pierce” weapon is the standard weapon, while dual wielding “Wings” is a good choice for those who like to get close. They can also use “Flamelure” to inflict a lot more damage from a distance. Either of these weapons should provide good damage.
The “Berserking” ability should be learned on one of your first weapons regardless if you like the Demon Hunter or not. This is the ability to go in and stun a large number of monsters at once by using a barrage of attacks. It’s a powerful ability and the fastest leveling spec for any Demon Hunter. Just make sure you’re prepared to defend yourself.
So that’s it in a nutshell. If you play the game on an even remotely normal level you should have no trouble at all playing a Male Demon Hunter in Diablo 3. All you really need is a good talent tree and enough gold to buy the best gear possible.
If you’ve never played as a male Hunter before, I highly recommend taking a look at some male Demon Hunter diablo guides first. There are several different guides out there that are designed specifically for male players. They will teach you everything you need to know about playing this particular class.
You may even find that you prefer playing the opposite gender. It just depends on you and your preferences. After all, I have already mentioned that playing the opposite gender is perfectly acceptable in this game. There are many different races to choose from, including Human and Cat. Just pick one that you think will feel comfortable playing.
If you don’t like any of the races, don’t worry. Every class can play as one sex or the other, just as long as they’re allowed to. I’m sure you like playing a male, so choose a Demon Hunter class and start playing! It’s really simple and all you have to do is click “start” and watch as the game begins to play itself.
The best thing about the Demon Hunter class is the fact that it is one of the only classes that can dual-class. You can turn into a Demon Hunter while being a Demon. So, you’re getting two benefits right off the bat. Plus, when you’re out in the World of Warcraft world, you’ll run into a few unwanted situations, so having a spare Demon hand doesn’t hurt. As you level up, you can throw your Demon into one of the more difficult fights in the game (i.e. the one where you have to kill 20+ demons) and take advantage of the increased damage.
