No Healer?

General Discussion

I am a little confused. I never played Diablo before but I do not get the concept of the game. When I look at the classes, I see the barbarian who can be a 2 handed dps or tank. The Wizard is DPS and Witch Doctor is similar to the Warlock for Dps also. The Demon hunter is a Hunter.

Where is the Healer???

Is the tank supposed to heal himself or something by collecting health globes?

Oh dear god.. inc
every character in diablo can stand alone, its not like MMO's where you need a balanced party to advance.
Barbarian can heal.
This is not.........

Crap I just dont care anymore......

Play Diablo 2, NOW FFS.
Well there is no dps/healer/tank role in Diablo, but the Monk has healing spells.

It's funny that's the only one you didn't mention.


That seems dumb. How do you kill a boss then? Sounds easy if everyone can just heal themselves and nobody has to work together.

I forgot the Monk. I thought he was just another type of Dps toon also.

DIABLO IS NOT AN MMO.

Seriously, go play D2, I hear its one of the greatest games ever made, might open your eyes a bit.
In Diablo you have to make efficient use of health potions, as well as health globes that drop.

Also, Monks do have a direct heal, but they are more of support rather than a healer. So to stay alive you will have to be smart and use defensive abilities wisely.

Its really good that there isnt a healer in diablo, because there wont be mindless stalemates in pvp, where you have 2 healers spamming healing spells, so that even the highest dps barb has the effectiveness of throwing marshmallows at a concrete wall.

I see. I guess this game really is different than wow. I thought it was like a new mmo or something to replace wow. Thats a shame because I was looking forward to raiding in a new game.

So is this game supposed to be easy or harder than wow?
Hmmmmm 4 words for you..... THIS IS NOT WOW

Harder, More players in the game = scaled up mobs, Inferno mode will be based around being at level cap (all enemies will out level you.), Hardcore mode deaths are permanent.
