WD or Crusader. Anything else is UBER FAIL.

General Discussion
Just Saying....

Team WD Devs need a pay raise... Seriously.. Plenty of gear options out there and many different playstyles to choose from...

Team Crusader Devs needs a company paid for lunch for the rest of the year...

Team Barbarian Devs need to stop listening to Kris Kross's "Jump, Jump" or House of Pain's "Jump Around" and get on their job. EQ Leap is by far the most ridiculous playstyle I have ever witnessed. I mean really? How can a Crusader carry a 2H and a shield but a SAVAGE BOULDER LAUNCHING, BRUTE BARBABIAN CANT? I played 400+ hours on my Barb pre RoS and loved the class... Now I can't even stand looking at my beloved Barb. I DO NOT WANT TO BE A GRASSHOPPER IN ORDER TO PLAY T6!!!

Team Demon Hunter Devs needs to watch more Western films and recognize that as a Demon Hunter, you rather be shooting at stuff instead of setting up shooting stations and hiding behind a wall until stuff dies...

Team Monk Devs need to get fired and blacklisted in anything having to do with Gaming. They really need a career change.

Team Wiz Devs should... well... Follow Team Monk Devs out the door....

Seriously, I'm not sure how you guys break your teams up when it comes to class design but clearly someone in the headquarters is outshinning someone. Maybe Blizzard should provide more Team Building activities to allow the Brilliant Minds to mingle with the non Brilliant ones and share ideas...

That's all folks...

SHOUTOUT TO TEAM WD and TEAM CRUSADER THOUGH!!!
This was actually quite funny +1

xD

Such truth. For some reason WD seems to have way more items with class-specific affixes that actually boost skills and synergize with other skills.
Bliz.. follow the WD blueprint! Apply to every class.
Your mistake is thinking all this development happens in teams. Whereas most likely, its just 2 guys designing all the classes - and they play WD and Crusader.
Well, to be fair, WD was the red headed stepchild of D3 for a long time. I remember when pet doc was nowhere near viable anywhere close to endgame.

Crusader is in a real good place though for sure, lots of different build styles that are perfectly viable.
Wow, almost an hour and nobody has reported your post. That's gotta be a record. People seem to report everything these days.

Idk what the thinking has been behind the wizard class. The class is ruined and useless. I was in a T2 pub last night with my wiz, remembering the glory days of perma-freeze and how they nerfed it to the ground. Then, a barb joins our game, clearly in way too low of a Torment level and he starts leaping around and perma-freezing everything. A few days before that, a Sader was using some electrocution build that was ripping the mobs to shreds.

So, basically, a Barb class made for brute strength and slamming heads together can hop up and down on the ground and freeze everything long enough to kill it before it thaws. But a wizard can't because it's not "playing the class as intended."

Does anyone else see anything a bit bass ackwards with that idea?

That was not long ago. It wasn't until the release of the new bonus to the Zuni set did full pet builds really take off. Also, there were no T&Ts with increased pet speed or MoJ. If you did pop the Fetish Army skill for its limited time to help, it also had a very restrictive cap in how much of your crit damage it could use.

Loot 2.0 was really the patch that birthed the pet build. Before then it was a good bears build or Cloud of Bats. The WD was my first D3 character, and my first character to levels 60 and then to 70 in the expansion.

WD has always been strong. There were threads about how OP the bears build was, and how OP the Cloud of Bats build was. Yes, they were nothing like they are now, but WD has always been a strong class when geared properly. I was actively solo'ing MP8-10 on my WD in Vanilla with a little over 300k dps with Pierce the Veil passive and I ran a Skorn. Life Steal, as you remember, was a godsend, and Cloud of Bats has a full 380 degree attack radius, so I could literally stand in the middle of mobs, cast that, and the Life Steal would keep me well above the danger limit.

We never had a skill as useful as Piranhas, though. Right now I can't imagine going back to the WD without having Piranhado and not being able to clump all the enemies up like that again.
WD was the least played class in d3 until ROS, meaning wd was the "weakest"

end of story

Why can't all classes hold a weapon in each hand?

and they play WD and Crusader.


Then they really dropped the ball with the Crusader release and all of D3v for the Witch Doctor.

Well they had to switch from Wizard and Barb cause they weren't having as much fun after nerfing them.
Team Monk Devs need to get fired and blacklisted in anything having to do with Gaming. They really need a career change.


+1 and request the above statement to be carried out ASAP!
My barb.... my poor jumping bean barb!!!!
Just a phase...I remember when the WD was the weakest class and the Barb and Wiz were OP. It is good to cycle which classes are OP, makes people try out new classes. Next round of rebalancing may make Monks and Demon Hunters OP.

Roll Raekor and charge them to death. They should rename the set to Testosterone.

Funny you mention it though, I have 3 pieces so far for that set lol
