Well you know. If Barbs were clearing 48 without Motrick's then motrick' would be justified, on a single rune surely, maybe even on multiple runes. But they push the highest rifts on the leaderboard even without it. With motricks 60+ would be the standard which would by far beat all the other classes, and as blizz said they want more balance.
One could argue that unhallowed is the strongest, although it has much more iem requirements than anything else + its much harder. I mean dhs might push 2 levels higher than Barbs, but only a few. But what i think really determines the balance between sets is not the select few people willing to remake GR-s a hundreds of tims to get the perfect dreamrift, but the big average. If we want to look at the balance, lets check out the ENTRY POINT for greater rifts.
BARB- 52 season 52
CRUS- 48 - season 47
DH - 50 - season 52
MONK - 48 - season 50
WD - 47- season 47
WIZARD - 50 - season 50
Hmmm, the entry point of BABS is 5 levels higher than the entry point of WD-s to GR-s Maybe you wanna give motricks WD version to WD-s.
(And i am not a WD player.....)
All of the 47wds use a DOD is my point, the class is restricted to one wep that costs 75bloods and never drops. You also need the 6pc and a good carn helm for it to work. By far the most gear intenisive build in the game and still -5.
Lol because they need a full set, a weapon and the accompanying legendary, it's 'by far the most gear intensive build in the game'?
Also, they aren't -5. There's one Grift level different between solo WD and solo Barb on the seasonal ladder.
