Hunters are Speed cannons. The sheer amount of dmg they can do is almost unreal. From lawning down mobs in dgs to killing the boss at dg or maps, they're a brilliant DPS unit.
If you're looking towards pve, I'd suggest this build:
Combat stance: 5/5
(gives a 15% dmg increase and 12% crit)
Fatal shot: 5/5
( Just pure dmg, high power low cooldown)
Stun or dodge: 3/5
( can help you run or walk through mobs slightly. This is based on your choice. Dodge is not very effective and reliable unless it reaches a high percentage like 40 or 50 but works amazingly well at high values. Hunter also has an expert skill to increase dodge.)
Personally I've not seen many dodge hunters. Hunters excel with vamp or lifesteal Stat.
FYI: The cooldown time of skills varies from character based on your Cooldown Stat - mine is 15% in the above screenshots.
Now I'm not going to go through all the expert skills but only 2 which are almost compulsory for a speed hunter.
Mountain instincts: 4/4
( This is a mandatory skill to raise a speed hunter hunter.)
Hunter's Mark: 4/4
( This is a stackable skill which means that each time you hit a monster, you reduce its defense by 5%. Maximum allowed stacks is 5 times. That means at total of 25% defence reduced from your target. Or You can also look at it as effectively increasing your penetration parameter by 25%)
Try to maximize your speed when selecting gear, with crit and accuracy following.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions, shoot away. I'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge.
