Diablo® III

Most Important PVP stats

life regen, vitality, and maybe cc reduction. Tanks are going to have a big advantage over dps builds imo.

legacy natalya's armor set + smoke screen = GG
attacking while Invisible (untargetable) and invincible.
WOTB aint got nothing on that OP combo.


This. DH will be the OP class IMO. Pvp will have dmg mitigation, if not, it will all be for waste.

CC reduction and dex for non-dex classes. Not that dex wasn't good before PVP, but nobody really stacks it. Imaginea decked out barb with 30%+ dodge. Damn

Ranged attacks will likely have a big dmg nerf in pvp or they will be far too op.

Didn't read through everything, but everyone should also remember that there's a good chance damage will be heavily reduced for pvp.

It was 1/6th in D2, and the damage:health ratio is even worse in this game. I would expect at least a 95% reduction in damage or more.

How are they gonna handle fury in pvp? If the barb starts out the duel with 0 fury he's pretty screwed to be honest.


in WoW, warrior start combat with 0 rage (fury). play around it.

For the most part, skills that are useful in PVE will be important in PVP. Melee classes may use shields with high block chance for survival.

Mostly, I think skill selection will be far more important. Any skills that reduce CC cooldowns, or reduce your susceptibility to enemy CC.

Random runes will find their place. I'm thinking ones like Teleport - Reversal. It's terrible in PVE but has a lot of potential in PVP. It will allow you to teleport every 8 seconds. It will be great against melee classes since you teleport, they chase you, cast again and you're back in your original position.

the oculus tele cd reduction might be very useful stat too.

another idea for wizard runes combination is mirror duplicates x5 + force teleport wave and the confused enemies will pop around all over the arena too. and arcane mines, twister whirlwinds, hydras and blizzard all over the place and the enemies has nowhere to go.

yes the randoom runes... arcane orbit can potentially become good in pvp against melee. sadly those things will always have a hard time in pve :(

loh + life regen may be a great help. maybe other players wont drop many globes.

sadly those crowd controls on hit effects does not sound very powerful even in pvp

There are still enough people playing to make Blizzard interested in patching further? I figured they'd drop the game long before a PVP patch is released.

life regeneration since it will have full benefit w/o the inferno nerf to it.

I'm gonna work on building my monk to have over 100K HP, over 1000 all resist, over 9000 defense, over 4000 life regeneration, and pretty much avoid increasing my damage to try to get these stats. Mantra of Retribution with Retaliation rune will be my main skill to have.
