Best in Slot Gear Guide for Demon Hunter – Updated for Patch 1.0.3

The Previous Best in Slot for Demon Hunter guide posted on here, with original credit to ACE from the D3 forums, is a little out dated since the 1.0.3 patch and attack speed nerf bat.  Here is an updated list for BiS gears for a demon hunter, with updated stat priority.

Stat Priority on Gear – (Aiming for best possible damage with ‘ok’ survivability )

Critical Hit Chance -> Attack Speed -> Critical Hit Damage -> Dexterity -> +Damage


IAS and ASI are different on legendaries.  Currently only IAS is broken on legendaries, but is supposed to be fixed by patch 1.0.4.  

(IAS = Increases attack speed / ASI = Attack speed increased)
