Haha, no bias there? Pinky isnt even in the top 10 US for Heroscore, but i guess is like top 3 Paragon for DH's. Maybe the others dont play anymore..

Heroscore isn't the best indicator, you could have a guy that could get KO'd soon as the wind blows, or someone that just cannot die but hits like a wet noodle and have bosses enrage on you.

Best indicator is to just watch or see them play, how they survive, and what they bring to a team, because it's not always so direct.

geology I see you have only lost 2 wizards in Hardcore but no barbs ... what do you guys think will kill his barb? (This helps him as much as it hurts him btw)


To be fair, I've deleted the lag deaths though never did lose a barb. I really wanted to get to 60 with my barb cause I love the play style. What kept my barb alive to 60 was keeping my weapon and shield ugraded as much as I could afford, but also simply not skipping any content and replaying certain areas till I felt way over geared. I ran the crypts at least 5 extra times, same with any open areas and dungeons just before each boss. Places like: highlands to the halls of agony, ZK archives, crater. Running those a few extra times gives a chance at better gear and always more experience (in both meanings of the word).

What do I think would kill a barb? Not having enough all resist. As a barb, you need to be close to fight and that means standing in puddles of god-knows-what to get the job done. A barb does not "naturally" build up these resistances (as a WD would), so it can be easy to over look untill its too late. A quick search on these forums will give good guidelines of resistances for inferno acts, but I think its a good thing to start thinking about in hell as well. A good shield (high block, some all res) can work wonders as I mentioned before.

I agree about heroscore not being very precise.. Especially for monks, as it doesn't count bonuses like OWE.

It's still very subjective. I do find the PVP dummy of better use.
You can find 3-4 millions EHP monks with 20k dps which will be first heroscore wise and have another monk having 2m EHP but 90k DPS.

IMO, the 2nd monk is a "better" monk.

Impressive. You didn't die to DC while you played 30h/week on that single barb char!

Do you play 60h a week? If we calculate the number of elite kill ratio you have total VS your barb only (800h), we're not far from 60h a week since launch.

You're almost paragon 100, good luck!

its a hack and slash....even pvp will be silly if you try to mention skill.

you want skill? go play an rts.


You've got a lot of dead characters to say the game has no skill.

If you can improve in the game and become more proficient in the gameplay, then the game has elements of skill.
