Diablo® III

Best follower for barbarian?

What have you guys found to be the best follower so far? I'm level 18 and just started act II, and have been using the templar, but I haven't tried the others yet.

Based on the follower's profile tab, the scoundrel appears to have the highest dps.

Yes, but highest DPS doesn't necessarily mean the best follower to compliment the barbarian though?

I used Templar in Normal, but Enchantress in Nightmare (Act 3 now). Powered Armor (Armor +15%, Erosion (mediocre dmg, but enemies affected take 15% more dmg from all attacks), and Focused Mind (ATK speed +3%) are all pretty nice.

I haven't noticed any animation from the enchantress letting me know I was given the 15% armor buff, so far in act 2 nightmare.

Her AoE crowd control is complete !@#$. She will cast it on top of you immediately when an enemy begins running toward you from 50 yards away. So essentially, it's on a 60 second cooldown and doesn't crowd control anything.

I've been using the Templar for the heals.

Templar for heals, like others have said you don't really need followers for damage, you need them for buffs/heals. Templar with healing spell and regen should be good all the way through normal (can't say for the other difficulties).

I use the scoundrel. I keep the gear on it updated and seems to be the highest dps of all the followers. (I am on act 4 NM). I imagine with the Hell stuff on him, he will be even better, it's pretty gear dependent.

Ignore all damage skills (they're useless). I went with enchantress just because she had the most debuff/buff skills. Maybe templar for heals (haven't tried that much), but I'd think the templar is kind of a tank, where you're already a tank.

tried all 3 but i like templar most because he's tanky and can heal.
