To be fair, we know that anyone running non-raekors in a group is going to be squishy as hell. I don't think we need to wait for the leaderboards to settle to prove that (go do some group rifts!). My own experience so far in groups has been pretty disappointing (mainly in terms of survivability).
I cant agree more here with the lack of survivability. I have had to go more defense giving up some Damage to survive. Even with that knowing some more items will be nlocked during season 3 im going to start with the barb so see where i can take it. Regardless even if i clear the trash suoer quick it takes me just as long to kill the rift guardian. Reminds me to much of raekors or jade.
Strange, i feel my survivability is so much better with the ww build in group grifts and solo play as compared to reakors...
Taking down the RG is very boring though (at solo play), takes forever and aint fun at all.
