Diablo® III

Rank the classes!

My brother and I are having an argument on how the classes rank in overall power. Help us end our endless argument with your opinions.

I said:

Barb>Wiz>WD>DH>Monk

He said:

Barb > DH/WD > Monk/Wiz

Add your rankings so we can put this puppy to bed!

Depends on Hardcore or Softcore, but they're all pretty much the same in my book. If any one class is lower, I'd say DH.

DH > WD / WIZ > MonK/Barb.

Aoe potential is where I'm looking at for my analyse.

DH multishot is clearly the best map cleaner.

Come next with WD acid rain and multiple pets / sacrifice build.

Wiz is third because we are either beam oriented (aoe in a line) or Explosion blast/wof and stuff like that: small aoe around us.

Finaly come monk with sweeping wind and barb with whirlwind. melee aoe which is by far the worst in term of dps output.

Did you really just try and pretend wizards use WOF?

It really depends on what exactly you're ranking them... They have many different uses. Pvp?ubers?high mp farming? high mp grouping? low mp farming? diversity?..

I'll rank them by build diversity... WD > Barb > DH > wiz > monk.

group: Wiz >> monk > WD > barb > DH

low mp farming: monk(till snapshot is fixed) > DH > WD > Barb > wiz.

high mp farming: Barb > wiz > monk > WD > DH

Solo ubers: Barb > Wiz > DH > monk > WD

Group ubers: Wiz >>>>>> Monk > WD > barb > DH.

I'd question this, i have nasty barb with 120k dmg moving @ 50% movement speed with the Rumble rune...To put this into prospective, imagine you had a screen full of monsters, bam dead, I'm already ahead of the demon hunter killing the next mob.


If we are talking MP0...

Not when it's my legacy Nat DH with nearly unlimited vault and TA, and I either moving around 200%+++++(vault) or 180%+(TA), lol@ barb's consistent 180%. Plus, good lucky try to get a full screen with WW, while MS can clear them in 2 shot.

As much as I agree DH is the weakest class in higher MP, for low MP fast clear, they are not bad at all, in fact barb might be one of the weaker ones compare to Monk and DH.

DH needs a serious buff and barbs need a serious nerf

Wow, a lot of people putting DH in the back of the bus, or asking/wanting a buff! I don't need a buff, and unless the Barb-ie is top notch, they leave the open games when I'm in there because they can't build enough power if there's nothing left to kill! But gold for gold, Barbs are the best for less.

Barb>DH>WZ>Monk>WD.

And this is my 13 year old brother who keeps telling me barbs are the worst in the game. However, no one is every going to agree on a ranking....

Caustic, if you poured 50% of the gold you spent to build your DH into a Barb, your barb would have 2x more EHP and at least 2x more TDPS.

I poured 400 mil into my DH for 178k DPS & 217k EHP

190 mil into my Barb for 543k TDPS & 514k EHP

EDIT: And when my barbarian is buffed, he gets 910k TDPS and 652k EHP, not to mention that he runs at 50% increased speed which means he can grind exp & gear much faster.

The only thing everyone seems to be agreeing on is that Wiz isn't the worst, or 2nd worst class......

Wizards are the worst. The worst I tell you! Especially those wizards running so called "Critical Mass" builds--total lolfests. Can't clear Act IV Inferno. Definitely need to be buffed.
