I'm about to test this out myself, and see where it goes and how well it works with my own playstyle. I'll let you know my results, hopefully you keep this updated as you go.

Thanks man, means a heck of a lot to me, and I may update some things later on, as I myself am testing it also.
Feedback is highly regarded by me so I hope to hear more from you!

" +% Increased Projectile Damage " should be your highest priority for increased damage. It increases ALL damage associated with projectiles. Chaos, Fire, Ice, Lightning & Physical damage is increased by " +% Increased projectile damage. ". Even certain Spells gain increased damage. Fireball is one of those spells

Your crit chance is far to low for you to bother with the " +% increased Critical multiplier " nodes. my guess is that you won't have any higher crit chance then 9% with your passives. Unless you do something about that. by getting more " +% increased Critical chance ". Also note that the " +% increased Critical strike " is multiplied by your weapons Crit chance. All " +% Increased Critical strike " are added with each other. (so taking a +20% and a +25% Means that you have a single "+45% Increased Critical strike chance ")

You lack Defence. Armour, Evasion Or Energy shield is disturbing. you will not have especially good survivability on higher difficulties.

The point of being ranged, is to do just that, be back in the back fighting. By higher difficulties people should find friends before then and start grouping up..the lack of defensive nodes isn't that big of a deal.

I appreciate the feedback, and yes, an update is sure to arrive... soon.
Will take into consideration your mention on staying alive and the crits.

Also, re-calculate your critical strike chance, as in both builds I have over 100% crit chance with bows and above or equal to 50% for spells. Just look at downward of "Aspect of the Eagle"; you'll see it

I'm kind of curious, do you believe that Explosive Arrow is another option? I would imagine it probably is considering its 3 AoE shots similar to Lightning Arrow & Ice Shot...though the DPS might be lower than the normal Burning Arrow, not sure though..

So far I am having no trouble solo, although I do group sometimes too so that helps too. I don't see any major cons in the build, considering as a ranger you should be able to orb walk/kite really well and stay in the back. Solo is a different story, Traps and Kiting is a must in certain situations, but against champ/elite packs its not that much of a problem but when it comes to bosses, its rough.

Just started playing the game this week. Started goofing around with a Witch, but switched to Ranger once I got the hang of it. Used your build and love it. I can solo everything except the end of act bosses.
