It's all relevant imo. melee will have certain strengths/weaknesses as well as ranged...You say this but then go on to list that melee has no strengths and weaknesses.
DH'S sacrifice some tDPS in exchange for extreme mobility, being ranged, perma invulnerability and more group utilityThat's not a good tradeoff at all. The idea to range is that you kill them before they get to you. Kill them from a distance. That's currently not true. All DH on high MP has to kill from close range.
Wiz are one of the flagship classes (barb is other) that must remain OP for the game's allure.What does the game's allure have to do with anything? If anything, the DH must be OP for the game's alure because they are DEMON hunters. They are not hunting demons as well as the other guys, so why shouldn't they be OP for the game's allure?
Barbs have amazing tDPS, strong solo single target and aoe dps, some group utility and best passives in game. Easily the most return on your investment in d3.
And they last a hell of alot longer too. mp5+.
04/08/2013 08:15 AMPosted by AxelI think one can see why DHs are outperformed with just a glance. They have very low damage modifiers on skills compared to the other classes and this can cause them to be fairly slower in performance. This can also cause problems in Hatred management as well which some people have brought up recently I believe.
I agree barb is OP and easy, but as for the other classes I might have to point out that we should not forget the term "different". They're not all meant to kill as fast as the other, they tend to have all the difference in skills and game play. Nobody would want a DH who could tank and kills easily as monk or a barb.
My point is if y'all want all the other class to accomplish the same !@#$, then blizzard should've made just ONE class. Monk kills faster, yes but do they have the mobility and range the DH has in its advantage? Can a monk kite? No. Does the other classes have summons that would tank for them like WD? I could go on, but the bottom line is they all have their class highlights hence the saying, "you cannot have it all"

Just my .02 for the sake of being fair for all classes, but yeah barb is faceroll. LOL
just watched the video..^ This. Overawe allows the Monk to deal 12% more damage so to account for this on the Demon Hunter, you take Marked for Death - Grim Reaper.
of course the DH is gonna look bad. he's not optimized to deal full dps. you should've used Imminent Doom on your bola shot. and since youre comparing it with a class that uses overawe, replace the bat with MFD-Grim Reaper. That wouldve made a world of difference.
Personally I'd take MFD in place of Sentry in this case. In TianZi's video, you'll see he goes to Warriors Rest, where there's a lot of skeletons which reduces the effectiveness of Sentry greatly.
Sentry adds immense eDPS (like 50-70k dps per turret depending on your gear) however it is better used in standard farming scenarios where you're out there in the world and you're coming up against 3-4 elites. That's where it works it's magic the best.
04/08/2013 08:36 AMPosted by KyriusMy 35 mil CM Wiz is a lot more stable and farms a lot faster than my 225k dps 500k ehp DH...and I've decided to take a break from D3 until they fix PvE balance (probably won't happen in 1.0.8)..
