8.So... Wich follower must i choose ?
It's a common belief among D3players that a follower would be the most suited for a specific class. Not really a wrong thinking but it's quite inacurate.
There's three way to consider a follower choice :
- bonuses point of view : depend on your build to compensate a lack of characteristic (then your choice is as+armor, chc or extra damage, resource regeneration and heal). Or the parangon farming need : MF/GF/XP.
- skill point of view : passive combination, cc in order to complete your gameplay.
- field point of view : enchantress for corridors and enclosed spaces, scoundrel for opened fields, and templar for bosses/single target fights.
One must take into consideration that a specific follower build will be effective at a given difficulty and become useless at higher difficulty. Same goes with passive and proc synergy : a follower build might be OP for a barbarian and utterly useless for a DH. Same goes for instance if you use item like Strongamar Bracers : a Windforce Scoundrel or a pushing Enchantress will be more effective than a standard Tempar. Hence asking for shared followers or account followers is a nonsense.Edit : the Strongarm combo seems to have undergone some changes

Edit: Just retested. Forceful Push does not proc the increased damage from Strongarm Bracers. Likewise, Windforce would only give the extra damage if used by the character wearing the Strongarms, so it doesn't help you if the Scoundrel has that bow (other than for general crowd control).
I had to dig around to be sure, but you're right. There was a change that prevented this from working any more, and I just never bothered to adjust my followers accordingly. Good catch, and thanks for letting me know. I'll go back to my previous post and edit the info so that I'm not spreading bad information. Thanks again!
In my opinion, the best way to use follower at your avantage is to use all 3 of them according to the situation (Caches farming, Rifts, Bosses, etc.).
