Almost everyone agrees that the Wizard is the strongest class. Let’s flip that coin over today. Which is Reaper of Souls Weakest Class? This follow up vote was requested in the comments last time, so here we go, with community consensus on where next the buff-stick must fall.
Here’s the related poll from last week. The results might change slightly if we re-voted this today, thanks to Patch 2.0.4 fixing a couple of bugs that were boosting the Wizard’s spell damage, but every Wizard player I know is still pretty happy with the class.
Possibly the Crusader has separated himself a bit since the last vote, thanks to Patch 2.0.4 delivering substantial buffs to most of his skills, but none of the other classes got much of an improvement in the recent patch. It’ll be interesting to see how the Monk does in this “weakest” vote, given that Bliz felt he was perfectly balanced as of earlier this week.
The other related poll from the last triple vote post asked what you guys felt about balance on the whole, and I was surprised that only a third of you guys really want near-perfect balance. I don’t think that degree of balance is possible in a game like Diablo 3, with hundreds of skills for each class and so much potential variance in gear quality, but I expected more of the voters to demand it.
Comment on what you like, but I’m curious to hear people’s opinions of which class is weakest, and why, and what should be changed (if anything) to buff them. I very seldom see anyone saying “nerf X right now!” Most players are find with the upper end of the power curve (Wizard), they just want other classes boosted to equivalency. Which can be easier said than done. For instance, I’m very dissatisfied with the Monk in RoS, after he was my main for most of D3, and I can’t really say what’s wrong. He just feels sluggish, like he’s lost IAS in his Generators, and none of the spenders are buffed to offset it.
