Least click intensive playstyle?

Posts: 65
Anybody have a feel for which of the classes has the least click/micro intensive playstyle? I know the game is meant to be a bit hack and slashy no matter what you play but basically I'd like to avoid playing the equivalent of a WoW rogue. I'm looking for a game more based on positioning, ability selection, etc. My first guess would be to just go with one of the ranged classes but any input would be helpful.

Probably the Witch Doctor. The Witch Doctor has the pets and things to summon which I believe attack a ranged area. When they spawn, they will have many automated attacks, after the initial target is dead. At least how I understand it.

I was kind of leaning that direction myself. Anyone played both a DH and a WD that can compare the playstyle?

You'll definitely need to do lots of kiting as DH.

Yeah DH is probably going to be more click-intensive than WD, mainly because you never want to be too up-close-and-personal. The Monk has a lot of comboing and jumping around the battle involved, so that adds clicks and micro. Barbarians typically click once to get into the middle of it then start smashing away. Wizards will be roughly the same as DH if I understand their playstyle correctly.

All in all, for minimum clicks, it appears that a pet-heavy WD will be your best bet.
