Also keep in mind, having a higher magic damage can still be better in the end due to the lower magical mitigation on certain encounters.
While the magic damage is nice in certain fights, like most of T3 for example, Pillars + Searing Hatred in your rotation will get you more than Hell Strikes from my experience. Hell Strikes MIGHT be worth it if there is another HoX in raid, but that's still a big MIGHT.

Best single target dps build I can make from tons of testing (you need a badass weapon, though). Move the 3 points from debuff to stun if you need the stun. Remove points from Butcher and debuff to get down to Molten Flesh for fire damage fights like Brothers, Pagoda, and Keeper.

Some will disagree since I don't include the 100 magic damage, but I see a bigger increase in dps from Butcher (it raises base dps for all combos along with an increase in BtD DoT because of the weapon damage % boost, thanks to Boesche for this one).
What's your rotation with a build like this? I'm trying to see how you work PoIF in there. I only pve on my HoX and I almost never use PoIF in my rotation. I only use it for when i need aoe... with all the feat points you have invested, I would think you are including it in a rotation.

My current build
http://joharaoc.eu/feat/?link=v4_12b...bf441bafc1bbc2
My current rotation
max rank BTD, then HS6, HS3, BTD, Firelance, HS6. I keep HFB on cool down, and throw in EoX right before the finisher on BTD
Since Firelance is all fire damage, I put it into my second BTD rotation once the boss has been fully magic debuffed.

All builds are different, and I have had around four of them! There is no "best build" either, just like for any other class.

My old levelling (including low-level PvP) build: http://goo.gl/mAbf3 (I was on a PvE server, and this build was actually viable in low-level PvP).

I use the following build in some encounters, including T3.5: http://goo.gl/ZAoXu

I use two more for PvP and general PvE, but, again, they are different from the previous ones.

Well, i play quite a few classes at the moment the most but the one i've played the most in minis and open world is a carny conq. So when i log HoX it's to play at 200% something challenging héhé. Quite fun to play like that.

For PvE purposes never ever let go of dat Improved Burning Skull (parses around 3% from your damage, and thats just for 1 skill point; compare that to Hatred of the Living, which just adds 2% to HfB, which in turn parses only for around 20%-25%, effectivly leaving the one single point at 0.5% damage increase)!
PoIF only shines with Searing Hatred (adding around 1000 dot damge to that combo), but sadly it doesnt stack. So u have to take your time between Pillars. I'd recommend using them right after ur BtD so the pillar combo itself as well as the dot will be "exultated", not sure but i think the SH dot scales with weapon damage just like the BtD dot.
Nevertheless i'd recommend SH, but the dps difference between a HS- and a SH-oriented Build only is marginal, cuz the HS-spec has access to Knowledge of the Underworld and Butcher whereas the SH-spec only has access to one of those.

Imho the best build posted this far:

Move the 3 points from debuff to stun if you need the stun...
though one will defenitely need the stun for TA and General Sheng and moving only one point could suffice.

Crimson Shield is crap. Those 3 points are better spent elsewhere.
