Then I had a hard time leveling due to the lack of effective AoE for melee and lack of defensive skills that would allow me to tank the monsters. Chakram is very bad btw.
Then I made a melee WD, with a 2 handed sword, and it was the most fun character Ive played so far. Awesome dmg with Fire Bats, Haunt, Locust Swarm.
I have the 20% dmg reduction passive on him, to make him a better tanker.
But despite having the biggest dmg of all characters, which is awesome, yellow mobs die in 3 bats and Belial dies very fast...I feel WD has no way to actually tank the mobs.
I know I can fear them, but it has a 15 sec cooldown...
Then I made a Wiz on the other side, has almost the same dmg as Witch Doctor, an armor spell that gives him 65% def 20% all resists, and Diamond Skin, which allows him to tank anything (Belial is a laugh, I barely took damage).
Is there a way to make my WD more tanky? (besides equipment of course)
