Best Diablo 3 Class

  • #1
    I just wanted to see what everyones' thoughts are on which class will be the best class at release. A short reason explaining why you think so should suffice.

    I believe the sorceress will be the best class overall. Just as in Diablo 2, the sorceress teleported everywhere and shot out frost balls of death. Looking at the talent builder i'm sure that this will be the case in Diablo 3. This sucks for me as I dislike playing caster classes in Diablo games.

    Your thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

    Wizard, because of high damage and good CC :tyrael:

    I think all classes have interesting abilities to be honest! ^.^
    The ones that look good for me atm, which im slightly looking at more are barb/demon hunter ^.^

    i think the wizzard aswell since they got awsome spells etc , and blink ! :D

    Feels like the Sorceres witch was verry good in D2

    Hope there is great balance in the game .. But i'm not a fan of the PVP side of d3...
    But who know blizzard never lets us down !

    IMO sorceress was mostly good due to her ability to TP to a boss and kill it, e.g. Mephi runs. I know wiz has the same ability, but since it appears that inferno will be crazy-hard, a TP-spree will likely get you killed.

    Also, the game focuses on rares and champions now - do you honestly want to TP ahead and be surrounded when you stop at a champion? Sounds like a bad idea. You will likely want to clear a path.

    I doubt there's any "best" class, not for long anyways, with balance changes considered. Even if there is, I still think a mixed team will be better than four of the "best class", due to abilities that boost the whole team.

    I've always been a ranged player myself, in WoW, D2, even SC and SC2 (going dragoon/stalkers instead of zealots). I was all about the Wizard but I feel like the class will be over played at launch. I don't really like the feel of the Witch Doctor, so for me I'm going Demon Hunter. Will DH be the best class? No way to know until launch!

    I feel like Monk or Demon Hunter will be the best classes. The demon hunter is the consensus weak class right now so its in for a big upgrade which i think will put it ahead of the rest. The monk just seems too wild not to be OP hes flying around punching things at some insane speed, and has some sweet shielding and healing skills. 7 sided strike to me looks the strongest of all skill its absolutely bonkers.

    Best classes are going to be wiz cuse of their versility being a caster and being able to switch to melee. The monk is going to be killer with combo attacks and self heals. Demon hunter looks cool but I don't know of the character as a whole will exceed my expectations. Barb is the same as always tank. Witch doctor I'm sorry but all I can say is fail the skills just don't do it for me

    i always like the Druid, and the necromancer, i think they have good skills. The wizzard is good as well but its boring to me.

    Im totally agree with this, i think there is no Best class, every character has cons and pros with any other character.

    I don't think there's going to be a "best" class. I believe there will be a best class for each individual but not a best class as a whole. Each class will bring something different to the table making them strong in some points and weak in others.

    There will not be any "best" class. The reason is that every class will excel in different situations. For example the wizard will excel in mass aoe type fights with weak monsters. Whereas the witch doctor will excel in fights with multiple elite mobs because of high damage dots and pets to distract. If they do have one class that is better than all others in every situation then they would have truly failed.

    The WD actually looks very strong, but the problem is that I'm not a fan of pets of any sort, so I only intend to play the WD as a petless class. I'm not sure how strong he'd be in such a case, even though Blizzard CLAIMED it's viable even in Inferno.

    The Barbarian actually sounds extremely powerful - I'm surprised that Blizzard last said that he doesn't do as well in the lategame because the %weapon damage that his skills have look really, really good!

    This all depends on what you consider best, best damage dealer? best survival class? best MF? best single target damage? best AOE damage? list goes on, there wont be 1 best class to fill all the roles that the different situations call for (which is a good thing).

    You shouldn't pick your character based on who you think will be the most overpowered. Yes, the wizard will probably be the strongest in my opinion. But, I will be playing the class I find most interesting and which class fits my playstyle the most. I am still debating which class that is but you get my point :P

    as ive said on like 5 other threads the Witch Doctor will easily be the best class overall. he has insane PVE and PVP capabilities. he has THE most CC / defensive spells in the game out of all 5 classes and still has awesome damage capabilites. lower damage than the wizard but WAYYYY higher defensive capabilities which will be key in surviving in inferno.

    In a perfect "diabloworld" the better player should outshine the better class, but frankly i truly believe that any of the spellcasting oriented classes will have the upper hand early on due to experience in similar games. But as others said it depends on what ur actually taking into consideration what makes the class "the best". But in a 1v1 scenario i think spellcasters will be slightly stronger early on.

    The Demon-Hunter is in my opinion by far the best class. If i think about future pvp content, who is going to stop the DH ? Exactly... nobody will, you can just leap strike away whenever u get in trouble. I know what im gonna play once the game is out hihi

    Best class... for what?
    Soloing Inferno?
    Co-op?
    PvP?
    Making Gold?
    Farming items?

    Too simplistic a question in my mind... Which character do I like the best? I love the look and feel of the wizard... Is it going to be the best at everything... very unlikely... blizzard are better at balancing games than that.
