I know that Vault (Trail of Cinders) does not reset Sharpshooter, so after a while it always crits. Are there other skills that don't reset Sharpshooter?

  • that's probably going to be fixed in the next patch as well. When you deal damage that causes a crit, it should always reset sharpshooter

  • It's pretty much everything that deals damage (I think turrets also reset it). Like yx. said, it might be fixed next patch.

    I understand it may be fixed in the next patch. I just ask what works in the current version.

Currently in 1.04 the bat and sentry do not reset the sharpshooter bonus but do benefit from it. I think dots like jagged spikes and trial of cinders were hotfixed not to make use of the sharpshooter bonus. In 1.05 these mechanics will change: pets and sentries will not be able to crit anymore :(


Caltrops#Jagged Spikes certainly does not reset Sharpshooter, and certainly does benefit from it. This is the primary killing skill my DH uses, and I've re-tested it with every patch. It still works.
