2. Polymorph instead of stances for utility
3. Ranged and melee attacks
4. Strange ongoing attacks

Striker Power levels[edit]

The Demon Hunter has both ranged and melee attacks, with similar abilities to the Sorcerer and Ranger. This simultaneously gives controller and striker like abilities. However, the damage is slightly less than either, as Sorcerer's can apply their ability modifier damage on every creature they hit (And Demon hunter's just one or two), and the Charisma modifier damage is slightly less (2-3) compared to the Ranger's Hunter's Quarry damage (D8, 4.5). This compensates in part for their utility; at higher levels, this does even less damage proportionately.

On average, the Demon Hunter does approximately 22 damage with Chaos Blade and slightly less with their other at-wills, while a Ranger does 23.5 damage, while a Sorcerer's damage varies based on how many targets they hit.

Hybrid Talent[edit]

You gain Chaos magic and Demon's Power as class features. However, Demon's power only applies on Demon Hunter attacks. You may choose a hybrid talent in order to get Two-weapon fighting, Demon's Blood, or Demon's Bane. However, you may choose the "Chaos Blades" at-will power as a part of your regular at-wills, even if you don't have Chaos Blades.

Demon's Blood

You can ignore light cover and all concealment penalties. Furthermore, you can see in complete darkness, gain darkvision, and gain a +5 bonus to perception rolls to finding hidden enemies or when opposing stealth checks, and as well can make a roll against an opposing creature's stealth skill to see invisible targets. You qualify as a demon creature for the purpose of meeting prerequisites.

Two-weapon fighting

You gain two-weapon defense as a bonus feat, even if you don't meet the prerequisites. In addition, you can use a one-handed melee weapon in your offhand, as if it were an offhand weapon.

Chaos Magic

Whenever you hit with an attack, you gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls until the end of your next turn. This effect can only apply once per round.

Demon's Power

When you successfully hit a target with an attack, you can add your Charisma modifier as extra damage to the damage roll. However, you can only apply this effect to one creature you hit per round; at level 11, you can apply this effect to two creatures. If you spend an action point to make an attack, you may add your charisma modifier damage to that attack as well, even if you have already used this power that turn. At level 11 the damage increases to your Charisma modifier +2, and at level 21 increases to your charisma modifier +4.

Demon's Bane

You gain the "Chaos Blade" at-will power, in addition to your two at-will powers at level 1.
