Hey planning on playing with my friends to level and arena they are a monk and a barb. What would be better between monk and dh to do pvP and leveling with my friends? I'm quitting my wizArd and already have a 30 monk so between dh and monk what will groove better with my friends in pvp?

Monk is best for leveling, but DH is best for inferno. For now.

Monk is more fun/challenging, DH is just easy.

if they are both tanks you will have a lot of fun as a DH or any range. Sit back, let them tank and do what glass cannons do.

Monk is more frustrating, DH is just fun.


There I fixed that for you


lol but i agree with OMNI... Monk's are challenging to buildup but then again... i have not reached inferno yet to know..

If you have a monk and barb already in a pvp group, a DH would make more sense IMO so then you have a tank, healing, and high dps ranged. But if you want to build a really good monk it's quicker to use a DH to farm later inferno acts to build up your gear. With a monk you can quickly get through act 1 inferno and farm it without much trouble. But without range the monk relies more on having great gear than a DH so I think it takes a lot longer to build up to be able to start farming later acts.

This is false. As someone who has both a Monk and DH past act 1 inferno, i would argue DH is by far better at leveling, and takes much more skill to play effectively.

As for inferno, Monk is better if you have 5mil+ to spend on gear, but DH is better if you have a 1mil or less budget. As a DH expect to die ALOT in inferno(since 1 hit your dead) -- As a monk you shouldnt be dieing alot as long as your gear is ok.
