Kridershot database.

This bow can be found by any class, but only equipped by Demon Hunters and Witch Doctors.

The Kridershot is one of the most desired legendary weapons for Demon Hunters. It is a bow with stats comparable to other bows, but a very valuable legendary affix that turns the Elemental Arrow skill into a Hatred Generator.

This legendary affix allows Demon Hunters to generate hatred with a skill that deals far higher damage than any of the usual Hatred Generators. The simplest change is to use a lot of Elemental Arrow as a main attack skill, and supplement that with big bang Hatred Spenders, such as Cluster Bear. Gear with bonus damage to Elemental Arrow is very useful to pair with this bow, and most players wind up engaging in a lot of gear switching when they find this weapon and need to change their armor to match.[1]

Kridershot properties[edit | edit source]

The key stats of this bow is that it always rolls with a socket, almost always rolls with +Dex for a Demon Hunter, and has the build-changing legendary affix. Since the socket and dexterity are inherent, players can often spend their enchant to increase the damage, or roll one of the other useful primary stats such as IAS, +Elite damage, or +damage%.

Long ago, an outmatched hero defeated a great demon archer with a
lucky shot and claimed its mighty weapon as his own. It was to be
the last good fortune he enjoyed, as the dying demon's curse wormed
its way into the bow. For the remainder of his short life, the hero
never knew a day free from conflict. Strife and destruction have
dogged every poor soul to bear the bow.

Diablo 3 Classic[edit | edit source]

This item was present in Diablo 3 vanilla, but it did not have the great legendary affix. It was also of no use in the end game since it was low level and items did not scale up prior to D3v2.
