Also saying that we do comparable damage to ghom in a dps test is a terrible example. Not only do DH's lag behind 5-10 seconds behind all other classes in that but its a single target huge slow enemy. Every other class shines when they are dealing eDPS to multiple targets at once. He was geared with over 40b worth of gear and still lagged horribly behind all other classes lol!
Many of us have said this time and time again and im going to repeat it, its NOT our survivability. Its our eDPS.
Our eDPS issues are directly linked to --- Poor damage multipliers, Inability to spam such skills, inability to have multiple skills up at once
Those three things in combo create poor eDPS meanwhile every other class has easy access to those three things in some shape or form which creates tremendous effective damage output. Im not even going to touch the self buffs every other class gets lol, Overawe/WOTB/Soul Harvest etc etc
Never mind that most classes except DH's dont NEED a resource generator, seems like every other class uses a generator just to get their endless resource spender engines running and once the chain begins theres no need for them. (Yes theres a low mp DH Strafe build that doesnt use a generator but its basically situational compared to everyone else's faceroll build) Monks still use them a lot and i feel they are honestly the most balanced in the game right now but thats my opinion.
Also the reason we have the most skill diversity is because all our skills basically suck equally lol! the ones that do shine well they are almost always a must have. Nowadays its rapid fire or spike traps, shadow power and archery. All our other skills don't really matter to influence our decision lol
Sigh* I give up lol Blizz ruined my favorite class :P
