Master of Evasion
Shadowhunter is one of the classes that strongly rely on their identity and having a high uptime means more damage. In chaos dungeons and cubes like every other class you rely on heavy AOE damage and low cooldown to clear all the mobs fast and not waste too much time clearing easy content. The whole build is made around AOE skills with low cooldown. In terms of difficulty both Chaos Dungeons and Cube are pretty easy to complete.

Shadowhunter relies on identity and transforming into a demon to gain new set of skills. Damage on these new skills is buffed with high Specialization so running it as a main stat is a must, while adding Crit as a secondary stat on necklace.
Two of the most important runes that will speed up clearing the mobs are
Bleed, 4on Cruel Cutterand Demon's Grip Galewind, 3on Demonic Clone, Thrust Impact, Decimateand Howl
Gameplay and Rotation
As with every other class the main idea is to group up all the mobs and burst them with 1 or 2 skills that deal big AoE damage. The rotation doesn't need to be perfect and you can use everything as it comes off the cooldown.
