Ya those barbs were godly in D2 with no gear...
So, 4 classes that, when you remove JUST their weapons... their damage disappears. Remove all items, and then pit them against a naked caster. Oh yeah, the problem is DEFINITELY being loot dependent.
The OP may be correct, but using this kind of argument is pretty much not.
The thing is though that D2 gave you this option. There were of course builds and characters that needed good gear to succeed. Barbs, melee pallys ,Bowazons etc... But to play the game, not just play PvP, PvM too, you had a fair shot at it with many builds and minimal/sweet fa gear.
There was a path in D2 for people who didn't feel like grinding 1000 hours for a few points of vitality or dmg. And those people that did feel like grinding the rewards were more than just that. Faith bows, IK sets, grizzy sets(Items that changed how your character played in wild and fun ways) etc etc..... Not a stupid random yellow with 250 dex and 100 all res.
A character in D3 with no items is 100% useless, guaranteed. You can't build your way out of it because there are none, even with items there are 2 builds for every character, tank or glass cannon. Hell any character with anything less than an inventory full of ilvl63's is garbage. Too linear, too dull, shallow.
I really really hope they fix this. Unfortunately I don't think its going to be happening.
