Well, actually I think he is worse off without inspired shot. Even Crossbow could use that talent to great extent:
BH: open wounds, Assassin, Inspired Shot, Duty‘s Gift, Double shotted. (THP is up to your preference)
Rapier: 10% chaos, 30% BCR, SS
Crossbow: 20% crit Power, 10% Skaven, Hunter
Necklace: up to you
Charm: 20% crit power, 10% chaos
Trinket: up to you
Inspired shot basically gives you on demand crit. This in return gives you nearly 100% of Hunter and SS(rapiers altfire triggers SS and uses up Blessed Shots for a guaranteed crit).
With this setup Crossbow will crit bodyshot anything except CW and give you free hunter buff vs that armor type for your melee.
Rapier with Hunter:
Oneshot every Hordemob except Gor/Marauder (both 2 Headshots or 1 pistol Head/critshot)
Rapier without Hunter:
1 Headshot for slaverat, fanatic, ungor
2 Headshots/1 pistol Head/crit for clanrat, gor
3 Headshots/1 pistol head/crit and one bodyshot with light.
Ammo isnt a problem. An elite should always be around to kill once you are at your last shot to trigger Duty‘s gift. If you are out of ammo, simply use ult on an elite and you have 9 ammo again.
You have good Headshot Breakpoints, nuke everything with your bow and have near constant SS/Hunter on top.
Thats live right now. Removing Inspired Shot will also affect Crossbow (albeit not as hard as the other guns).
From what I gathered, the BH is supposed to switch between melee and range a lot and Inspired shot really fits perfect for this.
That‘s also why I want it back as a passive on top.
Weapon swap buff is a good talent (even without the double buff it helps a lot with Breakpoints), but its nowwhere near as good as Inspired shot if you ask me.
Maybe weapon swap buff as a passive and giving back Inspired Shot as a talent would be the best for BH overall.
