Diablo® III

Wizard overall damage?

I see posts about the Wizard not doing as much damage as the Demon Hunter. Shouldn't we do more as Wizards are true "glass cannons"?

I do a lot of dmg myself, it all depends on gear and stats, i find that giving up intel for DMG or Attack speed can help. Also if you use dmg buff spells. I play with a friend who has a barb so i can just go full out DPS mode. and am pushing 2077 currently

I don't know what the actual design plan is for each of the characters, but the idea of the "glass cannon" is a bit outdated. In other games, Warcraft and SWTOR come to mind, they tried to achieve more of a balance where you could solo with any class, or do a different equipment or skill build to maximize dps or survivability. I don't think we can just say one class is the "dps class" anymore in most games.

I do 2.2k DPS at level 43 myself, which I know isn't too good. But the question was how our damage is compared to DHers.

Pretty sure demon hunters are actually more glass cannons than wizards. We have pretty amazing getaway/defensive abilities.
