Looking for Input for new Character

  • #1
    Heya,

    I've been playing HC Wizard on Diablo 3 pretty much permanently since I started playing, but it's getting a little boring now. The only build I enjoy (and feel safe) playing is CMWW but I'm just getting bored with it now.

    So I'm looking to start a new class, only I really don't know enough about the other classes to make an informed decision.

    So anyone got any input on the pro's and con's of the other 4 classes with regard to HC that I could use to choose one?

    Also, please consider that I'll be playing self-found. Any builds that require expensive gear just won't be feasable.

    I realise this is a fairly open ended question, but any help is appreciated. ^^
    And may the odds be ever in your favour.

    Definitely witch doctor. I too used to be wiz player as well(i actualy remember you from wiz forum by Tali avatar), and since i converted to WD im enjoying the game much more.

    1) You got training playing caster class
    2) WD is the least gear-dependant class
    3) WD is great for soloing thanks to its ability to summon several very durable tanks and passive spirit vessel making you basicaly immortal
    4) WD has many viable builds and buff spells you can choose from, so you are not limited to playstyle you dont enjoy. Ignore what you see on forums or youtube, those people are 99% softcore going only for efficiency and thus using only 2 different builds with minor tweaks.
    5) WD has the highest chance to survive dc. You got army of tanks to attract enemy attention till you log off. 1 gargantuan + 3(4) zombie dogs + enchantress using maximus summoning tank demon + spirit vessel pasive.

    Yeah I was thinking WD, it seems the natural choice going from the only other caster, I just wasn't sure about the pets, are they really any good in infero?

    I'll give it a go though and see how it plays out. Thank you.

    The pets are amazing now. They rarely die and keep the focus of most of the enemies on them so you can just rain death on them safely from the back lines.

    Idd dogs do dmg like flies, but they are very hard to kill and atract mobs pretty well. Garg is nearly able to solo stuff and definitly can tank basicaly anything.

    level all classes to 60.


    That's not really practical for me, especially on HC. It takes me days to level one character to 60 because levelling in D3 just sends me to sleep, it just drains me it's so boring, and as we all know playing HC while sleepy is suicidal.
