suppressive fire multishot chicken [ginger bourbon chicken]

blog_bourbonchicken_title

I’ve been playing a fair amount of Diablo III recently in a meager attempt to reach Paragon 100. Numerically, I’m more than halfway there; realistically, I’m about 25% of the way there. It’s going to be a long grind.

It’s okay though — I’ve found some fancy stuff here and there. Legendaries seem to rain from the skies once you’re touting Paragon 50 and higher. Admittedly, most of them will tend to be not-so-excellent pieces of equipment. Thanks, RNG!

They were both terrible terrible drops…

I’ve hopped between several builds since the 1.0.4. Specifically, I used a multishot build with suppressive fire for quite some time. The build basically made my wrist incredibly sore from the amount of clicking and kiting required. So, I switched to a build similar to Pro Hacker’s DH. It seems to be working out a lot better and I’m completing runs much faster, but I’ll get into that later in the post. Before I nerd all over the place and make a mess, I should really get back to the matter at hand: food.

I had a lot of bourbon left over from another recipe experiment, so I tried to put it to good use in this savory dish. Basically, I just poured a bunch of bourbon on a chicken for good measure. Yep.

ADD MORE.

So, why is this dish called multishot chicken? Well, I’m just going to be blunt — there’s about a cup of booze in this dish. That’s roughly about 8 shots of bourbon all up in this chicken. MULTIPLE SHOTS. HA HA, GET IT? JOKES! …I am bad.

UNIT COMPOSITION

And that’s a GG WP for this drunken chicken. Now, go try out this dish and share it with your favorite demon hunter.

I’m currently using a build that utilizes Elemental Arrow with ball lightning as the main damage output. The consistent crits from ball lightning subsequently replenish my discipline very quickly, and therefore, I can vault freely and gloom whenever necessary.

It’s a great improvement over my previous multishot build and my wrist is no longer strained. Besides, ball lightning sounds MUCH cooler than multishot. bzzzzzt bzzzt bzzt bzzt. If you’re curious to about my full build and gear, here’s my b.net profile.

Now, go out there and kill some demons. “DARKNESS AWAITS YOU.” Or rather, in this case, “THAT WAS JUST A TASTE [of ginger bourbon chicken]*!”
*not an actual quote but close enough.

Happy legendary farming!

  3. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established
    blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about
    creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas
    or suggestions? With thanks
