Use a little common sense here. You don't take any damage on the DH because you can stay ranged while you DPS the mallet lord down, opposed to the monk/barb you have to be in melee range in order to DPS it. However, I guarantee if/when a DH is within melee range of most mobs, especially a mallet lord, you will get 1 or 2 shot. And yes I speak from experience as I have both a DH and a monk with nearly 60 hrs each.06/03/2012 01:15 PMPosted by LunederI do not know if it is a fundamental problem with the system but I think the DH takes less damage overall. I remember going at those 4 armed giant mallet demons on my monk and getting 1 shotted, then going against them with my DH and hardly taking any damage.

umm in counter to what people are saying about one hit will kill you, you just do not know how to stack up vitality and dex, at level 41 I have around 19,000hp, and 1000 dexterity giving 30% dodge. As long as you keep the gear current it is damn near impossible for anything to kill you without having to work hard at it. On nightmare mode act two, even the largest strongest bosses will only hit for 4k-5k. To most people the barbarian would look like the defensive class due to strength increasing armor, but when you add in dex increasing dodge and the gear armor being the same then it matters less.I'm sure most of the ppl here making the comments are either in hell or inferno and have spent hundreds of thousands if not millions of gold getting gear. The current content you are on, yes we were there before too, is irrelevant because it 'was' easy. You too 'will' get one shot if you are hit by any boss/mob no matter how much dex/vit gear you stack.
I guess the other thing I have to take into account is, have the rest of you even bothered to buy gear out of the AH as you were leveling up, or did you all go old school and farm up gear that is definitely well below current level and stats needed.
eah, I had to lol when I read this... when I was 41 stacking more vit than dex was actually the key to some bosses, and it wasn't very hard to kill everything else.06/03/2012 09:07 PMPosted by emzarateumm in counter to what people are saying about one hit will kill you, you just do not know how to stack up vitality and dex, at level 41
