Hello

I haven't played much DH, so I decided to do some testing, as I plan to start next season with DH.

I removed everything that affects my damage, and crafted a low level bow and crossbow that were as close to the same dps as possible, and went to spam a Zombie that doesn't self heal (so I could check the health differences) and couldn't damage me through my regen.

If you plan on leveling with Massacre bonus, melee weapon is not a good option, because Hungering Arrow feels SUPER good at keeping the stacks.

TLDR:

Crossbow is quite a lot better at leveling than a bow. I was surprised how big the difference is, because bows almost always shows "more damage", mainly because of the speed.

Impale vs. Fan:

Massacre: Fan of Knives is better at leveling than Impale, unless you are lucky and get HPS (Holy Point Shot) Quiver at lvl 31, which you should save your shards on, especially if you happen to start the season with Karlei's.

Rifts: Impale is at least more fun than Fan of Knives, if not also better, depending on maps

Basically Fan of Knives deals 400% damage per second in the background even if you're dodging around, pulling a mob behind you with hungering arrow or just grouping up enemies. Also when you decide to use all that damage, it does a big AoE.

Impale does 375% damage, and only when you have time to attack, which is usually not more than one attack per second, if that. Also the damage isn't as big AoE, it just impales.

Impale does more damage to less targets, and the amount of targets is why I prefer Fan of Knives.

Here are some numbers I got (all numbers are without HPS Quiver):
