Last night, I was playing act 2 with a DH; who didnt have "AMAZING" gear. His Xbow was only about 650 DPS (compared to a 1000 DPS blue) and he had 50,000 damage. He also had 13,000 life.
While killing his way through Act 2, he proceeded to complain that DH needed smokescreen buffed, needed evasion buffed, and needed an ability that added % damage into life.
by Standing in 1 place; he automatically had more survival than me; with my ~97% overall damage reduction. Why? He would fire bonucing missiles off the screen and monsters would never get close enough that he would have to move.
With my amazing abilities to take upwards of 3 accidental hits; and my 3 forms of crowd control; the two of us made a great team. I could ensure that he didn't get hit; and he could play through the game without having to move.
It works; and I would have no problem playing through Inferno with an extreme DPS class; but I find it kind of degrading, dont you? There is no viable way for a monk to PLAY the content; without being a moving target for an AFK auto attacker?
BTW; equip all +speed and act 2 becomes super easy. I got through the first quest line there is about an hour. Made it halfway through the second, got a 3007 error,and it reset the whole painful thing >< for those of you who want to post "I am better than you because I made it past act 2" posts; this should be your ideal setup.
