So i found this pretty good Kridershot yesterday and tried some various builds and found that together with EA/FA it has nice synergy.

Elemental Arrow this is your hatred generator/damage buffer.
Cluster Arrow is your nuke
Preparation is hatred filler/whatever rune you like to take.
Companion is minor damage dealer and major damage cooldown to use with elites
Marked for death is damage buff + cleave
Shadow Power/Smoke Screen is the defensive cooldown.
Passives are self explanatory i think just more damage and discipline regen from crits
Cull the Weak (Frost arrow snare)
Spamming FA to single trash to kill them and FA+CA to groups
Elites > mark them with MfD > Use Companion buff > FA/CA/FA/CA depending of your attackspeed or FA/CA/CA/FA and repeat when you run low of hatred use Preparation for more hatred and nuke those Yellows!
Also i tend to use CA fairly often in trash so i can use Preparation to fill hatred so i can actually regen my discipline trough passive.
the damage is massive in my opinion i can farm T3 pretty fast, trash dies on oneshot and you can nuke elites pretty fast and the companion makes a handy tank sometimes.
Some hatred regen pieces make life easier as well discipline pieces, i got 2 Disc pieces + set so im at 55 wich is great but not madantory, since i started without them the playstyle just got smoother after getting the disc parts.
fill the gaps in your gear with the paragon points if u can.
Dex/Hatred (Alternating and testing between these)
AR (mine is super low)
What to aim for:
500-700 AR?? i have no idea, since i havent played my DH that much
I still die time to times when im not careful since i got very low Life on hit and AR
Not sure if the spec can be alive at 70 but as for now im loving it.
getting 2,5 million crits is pretty fun.
If any comments/improvisations/suggestions/questions im willing to answer to my best knowledge :)

Had a upper tier Manticore before my Kridershot dropped today so I lost significant paper DPS, but its definitely worth it. Running almost the same build and stuff is pretty easy at T5 solo. Legendaries like Kridershot are what make 2.0 exciting.
Dont you feel like cridershot is just not giving great dps?
I mean getting lucky getting a very well rolled crider could make or breat the dh and i hate to be that luck dependend now with now trades:(
Anyway, your build is about what i was thinking of if i find a cridershot, nice job ill wtch the video later.
I use a similar build but since I found an 18% inc fire damage amulet I tried to use screaming skull instead of frost arrow. Also the rest of my gear is not really great (90k damage unbuffed) I run with sharpshooter instead of steady aim because I regularly have some mobs really close to me.
But as you say, pop companion and blow those elites away.
Another change from your build is that I use vault with tumble for mobility but for higher torment I should give marked for death a try.
With preparation you can replenish your hatred so fast so you can dish out more cluster arrows wich is the main damage in this build. In my case i have 55 discipline so i can replenish 150 hatred in matter of seconds wich translates roughly to 4 Cluster Arrows if you count in natural regen.
but ofcourse people can have their own variations of the build and what they like to play with, i got no problems with that :>
Yes at lower torments i use vault aswell since everything dies so fast, i have also fire damage helm + bracers wich makes the Cluster Arrow hit like a truck filled with atom bombs
To be honest, I hate to have one wasted slot because of preparation. I think this skill has been implemanted because of the hatred bad design.
Otherwise this is true, you can launch a ton of CA thanks to it.
