2012-05-19 Heya this is a "how to kill diablo" on hell solo as a demon hunter. This is the first time I get him so you will see the prime evil (hell) achievement as proof. It was quite annoying to get him down but after I figured out a good setup and learned the fight and his abilities it got a lot easier. Low geared, no pots, no merc. I had 9500 dps when I dinged 60 but only 10k hp so I had to change my gear. Ended up with 5809 dps and 22,2k hp. You will see my skills, runes and stats in the video and some screen tips that should help out.
Hope its helpful GL! :)

In my eyes this is a terrible build, glad you killed him though.
Evasive Fire and Entangling shot is just a complete waste, since you only need to keep your distance to him, fire Cinder Arrow as often you can and Impale with bleed effect whenever you have the balls for it.
Phase 1 is just to easy, whenever he charges for you, just Tumble away.
Phase 2 the same thing, pop Smoke Screen after 1-2 autos in your Clone so he wont rape you. Burst him down with Impale then continue the autohits with Cinder just as you did in phase 1.
Phase 3 is just like phase 1. Don´t get hit by his spells, which is REALLY easy to dodge. If you feel like his rain of electricfireshiet will hit you. Just pop Smoke.
Remember that Preparation and Smoke Screen is OP, abuse it!
Perfectionist - Archery and w/e you feel like. NS or TA works really good, even SA as the last passive.

I will have to try this, or a variation of it on Inferno Diablo. I already finished hell, but my 'strategy' wasn't much of one. Just vault/tumble and never get hit. All accuracy. This looks much more easy to do though, wish I had known.
Funny to see evasive fire get some use in the video. I stopped using that after I chain backflipped from a teleporter elite into yet another elite pack in ActII Hell heh.
Unfortunately hell diablo is very easy.
Using smoke screen, even without prep you can completely avoid any damage he throws at you. 2nd phase, prep and 1-2 shot your companion, or even then burn a few smokescreens in a row if need be, after that the only thing diablo does is throw the occasional fireball, run anywhere until it spawns the circle and you win.
Strangely diablo is an increadibly easy fight, if you wanted to, you could kill him completely using the damage from sentry turret, whilst running away.
Thanks for great guide. Had some tries a late night here. so i decided to go to work next day and google him up as i boored my !@# off.
Got home and oneshotted him on first try with 2.5k dps 12k hp and lvl 50. Toke me like 15-20 min, and then i went to get my gf..
