    I'm not even sure why we need a thread for this, it's clearly the Barbarian. 'nuff said.

    You think barb will be the strongest class? Based off my experience in World of Warcraft melee classes lack mobility. Because of this they have more down-time than a ranged class doing less damage. Also you will have to fight mobs face to face when ranged can kite.

    exactly. someone gets it. +1
    So please go on about your arguement about how melee classes in World of Warcraft (assuming that blizzard will for some reason make them similar to the Barbarian and Monk in relation to "lack of mobility") lack mobility.


    Well in World of Warcraft, for PVE when melee classes have to move to avoid anything that makes then ranged of the boss that would be downtime in their DPS rotation. Even though a ranged DPS may have to avoid the same mechanic, they may be able to use instant cast ranged spells while moving.
    • Hunter - auto shot + half their abilities
    • Mage - fire can scorch / frost can ice lance
    • Druid - balance can moonfire
    • Warlock - can put up some Dots while moving
    • Shaman - elemental can use spiritwalkers grace
    So certain boss fights can allow ranged DPS to easily surpass melee DPS simply because they can always attack the boss even while avoiding mechanics / adds. In PVP there is a lot of abilities that allow melee classes to catch up to and snare ranged classes but they all have cooldowns. I can't count how many times hunters have kited my rogue and there is nothing I can do about it. Im not bad at PVP or anything there is only so much catching up I can do before everything is on cooldown and I'm stuck getting kited till I die. I have no idea what Diablo 3 PVE or PVP will be like though, my thoughts on what they can do to stop this is buff melee damage and health but then they would be overpowered so I'm not too sure.

    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.

    I think the monk is being overhyped, but we'll see. Personally I've basically already played every class in the game by having played other games (and previous diablo titles), so I know they will all feel great and work in a unique way, though I expect there to be more barbs and wizards than anything.

    I'm completely not being a dick, but I can tell you right meow that the classes in D3 do NOT feel like any other classes I've played before. MAYBE the barb + wiz, but even then it's different than you'd think =D

    same. the WD feels so different then anything. its a combination of a summoning druid fire druid and poison necro all in one at the same time.and the demon hunter is like the assassin and amazon mixed as well. they may feel SIMILAR to other classes but they are definitely unique

    Definitely going to try a Witch Doctor probably :) sounds cool.

    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.
