    How do you counter Demon Hunters?

    They just rip through everything and have a shitload of leech for passive healing. I see they are getting a 10% nerf to The Hunt, but I doubt that'll make a meaningful difference. Eye Beam is absolutely shredding.
    Kupo.

    If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

    It'll teach you their perspective on matters too, so you're likely to experience what "works" against DHs in person.
    This is a signature of an ailing giant, boundless in pride, wit and strength.
    Yet also as humble as health and humor permit.

    Furthermore, I consider that Carthage Slam must be destroyed.

    Whatever is more OP is the counter.
    In my experience...

    Maybe self healing fury warrior build

    Or a Affli lock?

    I only played DH on pre patch though...so not completely sure now.

    The Hunt, is hitting for about 120k so yes it is overpowered, in single target situations, throw 2 people at a DH and they fall over.

    Not much you can do atm.

    They're insanely strong, coupled with the fact that they require zero to no skill to play, they're also everywhere..

    This season is going to be fun.

    Hopefully the Blizzard nerf-hammer will execute some swift justice.

    Best way to counter a Demon Hunter: If one is coming your way... run, Forest, run.

    BM hunter has no issues against DH. You just kite the shit out of them and their fancy moves and they fall over.

    The only way for DHs to survive is to fight. We will die in stuns almost instantly. When rogues cloak or use evasion, I just start kiting because then I cannot hit that means I cannot leech (no heals). You want to put DHs in this position where they cannot dmg and leech hp.
