My WD is lvl 16 in all blue/yellow gear. My son, who plays a BARB, can charge in and take on 6-8 mobs and at worst, get down to half life. Me on the other hand, die at the hands of 2 or more.
The problem seems to be that by the time I get any aggro, my hands are already down on the group he's fighting, and my hounds are over there as well. So, when I do get aggro, I am nearly defenseless.
I could swap totem for shield, but that's a minor mitigation. What I'd like to know is, what are the stat priorities for WD? I've been piling int, with a little mf and xp. But unlike D2, where vit was the thing, I haven't any. Should I swap out my gear?
How does anybody ever use the aoe soul harvest if they can't survive in a pack long enough to drop it and run?
