Okay,at first:question title might be confusing so if anyone got a better idea,please edit it :)

In Diablo,there are different kind of spells.Primary spells seem to be all spells that are per standard bound to left click.However there is another categorie I am not sure of what it does actually mean:(Hatred) Spenders and (hatred) generators.

I want to ask my question by using an example:

Let's say I have equipped the legendary Quiver Spines of Seething Hatred and I've got the full Marauders Set.Would my Sentries still shoot Chakrams(because they don't spend any hatred now)?Would Chakram be affected by items that increase the damage of Ressource generators(like the new Marauders 2 Setbonus*)?

  • *"(2) Set Bonus Now increases the damage of your Hatred generators by 40% for every Sentry you have active"
  • For now in the PTR, the bonus (2) of the Marauder set indicates that you gain +40% from generators aswell as 40% bonus for Impale, Chakram, Elmental Arrow, Cluster Arrow and Multishot (imgur.com/QgZHpeV). Plus if you read the patch note : The following changes are not intended to be a nerf to Demon Hunters or the Embodiment of the Marauder set and additional tuning may be necessary. So as long as the PTR is not over we won't know for sure what's intended. I'd call a close vote as off topic (unreleased content) but boutied question can not be closed.

  • This questions was not specifically about the marauders set. It was about the question wether spells like cha kram would change from hatred spender to hatred generator by items

I have no way to verify this personally (so, grain of salt, et cetera), but the Diablo Wiki says this about the Spines of Seething Hatred:

The unique affix turns Chakram into Hatred generator: instead of spending Hatred, it generates one. However, for all purposes, it still counts as secondary, Hatred-spending skill.

Assuming this information is accurate, what I'm interpreting that to mean is that, for your purposes, Chakram would still be considered a "Hatred spender" regardless of the fact that it actually generates Hatred when used with the quiver.

So, in the context of the Marauder's 6-piece set bonus, your Sentries would still fire Chakrams. Likewise, it would follow that the new 2-piece bonus would not apply to Chakram, since it's still classified as a "Hatred spender" despite the added effect from the quiver.
