Vote: Your Favorite Diablo 3 Follower

We ran a vote about Followers back in September, spurred by some blue posts, but that vote asked how strong you wanted them to be (most fans want them stronger, more like the D2 big-damage style than the D3 buffs-only style) but we haven’t asked which of them you like best.

Who do you love?
For this vote, you can define “favorite” how you wish. For example, I use the DiabloWikiEnchantress on most of my chars since her skill set is the most useful — her Mass Poultrify spell is far and away the best “tanking” follower skill — but I’m not sure she’s actually my “favorite.” Also, none of the above has some good points as well.

I’m also curious if we might get a 4th follower in the expansion… what niche might he/she fill? Imagine an exiled Angel follower? Or a reformed Demon? Yeah, probably not…

Which is your favorite of Diablo III's Followers?

  • Eirena the Enchantress (37%, 1,085 Votes)
  • Lyndon the Scoundrel (26%, 782 Votes)
  • Kormac the Templar (21%, 624 Votes)
  • Hate them all / don't use Followers. (10%, 303 Votes)
  • Not sure / no opinion. (6%, 165 Votes)

Last Vote Results

We’ve run several votes in news posts since the last official vote post, so here are some recent results. The last main page vote asked how you were using the Auction House in v1.05. The results don’t bode real well for my Ironborn character idea, alas.

What’s your D3 Auction House behavior in v1.05?

  • 1) I’m buying and selling items. (44%, 1,447 Votes)
  • 3) Buying, but little or no selling. (17%, 560 Votes)
  • 6) I haven’t played the game in v1.05. (16%, 539 Votes)
  • 2) Selling, but little or no buying. (11%, 354 Votes)
  • 5) I’ve never used the Auction House. (7%, 247 Votes)
  • 4) No AH use; in v1.05 I can self find. (5%, 151 Votes)
  • Total Voters: 3,299

    We also asked about your favorite shrine in Diablo III and there was a clear winner. I thought Frenzied was the obvious best for the huge boost to killing power, so I was a bit surprised by this one, but clearly you guys are an impatient and overpowered lot, more interested in faster movement and gold pick up than in killing speed.

    Which is your favorite shrine in Diablo III?

  • Fleeting Shrine (Faster run, +pickup radius) (50%, 1,200 Votes)
  • Frenzied Shrine (Faster Attack/Critical Hit) (21%, 508 Votes)
  • Empowered Shrine (Faster regen / shorter cooldowns) (15%, 365 Votes)
  • Fortune Shrine (+25% MF/GF) (5%, 122 Votes)
  • Enlightened Shrine (+25% Exp gain) (5%, 112 Votes)
  • Protection Shrine (Reduces incoming damage by 25%) (2%, 57 Votes)
  • Not sure/no opinion. (2%, 48 Votes)
  • Total Voters: 2,412

    Most recently was a wacky weekend vote posted Saturday evening, in which you had to imagine it was Diablo tattoo or death. I thought more would choose death, or just complain about the vote, personally, so congrats to everyone who played along. That said… Tyrael is so overrated. I don’t get it the fan love for glowing tentacle wings and nagging NPC dialogue delivered with a lot of reverb.

    Your mandatory full-back D3 tattoo… choose wisely!

  • Tyrael or some other angel. (30%, 467 Votes)
  • I choose death. Just shoot me, Jay. (26%, 416 Votes)
  • One of the demons. (10%, 156 Votes)
  • Barbarian (8%, 122 Votes)
  • Treasure Goblin! (7%, 118 Votes)
  • Demon Hunter (5%, 82 Votes)
  • Bobby’s grinning face with glowing red eyes. (4%, 65 Votes)
  • Witch Doctor (4%, 56 Votes)
  • Wizard (3%, 50 Votes)
  • Monk (3%, 42 Votes)

    1. Enchantress = Most useful for me, however, Kormac has the best phrases and is awesome, so i vote Kormac

    2. The Templar’s Guardian ability causes the most hilarious knockback animation, so he gets my vote.

      I really like them all — the crit from Lyndon is great, the armor and attack speed from Eirena are neat, and the heals/regen from Kormac are useful and can be lifesavers occasionally.


    3. If I had to pick one of them to follow me around in real life, they all would probably drive me crazy.

      But from a purely personality point of view, I still think Lyndon steals the cake. I don’t think I’ve really ever become tired of his snide remarks and pore attempts at humor.
      As far as character development goes, through all four acts, I think his is the most dramatic. His history is also probably the most tragic of all the followers.

    4. As a side note, it might also be fun to have a poll for everyone’s most/least favorite ‘non-follower’ (a follower which doesn’t do much more than talk your ear off or functions as a meat shield) and why.
      We could choose from Tyrael, Leah, Adria,and Zoltun Kulle, and maybe even Haedrig and Shen, since they do follow your around, although briefly.

      • there was a time when Tyrael did 50k damage and would continue slaying elites after you died. My first few days in act3 inferno consisted of item hunting that way πŸ™‚

    5. I don’t know if Lyndon is the most useful (although he’s great for slowing) but he’s definitely my favorite. πŸ™‚

    6. I don’t think I’ve ever used the Enchantress… I’ve never liked her skill-set all that much, and I’m not a fan of her voice either. Lyndon’s awesome for his quotes, while Kormac’s literally a life-saver. He’s often saved my skin with a well-timed stun on an elite mob.

    7. The Scoundrel is hands down the most amusing to have along for the ride. I love his comments.

      For some reason Blizz saw fit to give him a smart ass comment on just about everything in the game lol.

    8. As a wizard I tend to rely on Kormac far more then I do the other 2. I keep dying far more with them then I do having Kormac.

    9. I like all of them:
      Templar for his mad skillz, Scoundrel for his witty remarks and Enchantress for her looks πŸ˜‰

      captcha = nice marmot :0

    10. The templar because of the health boost and because he has a knock back and a very very limited tank abikity.

      The scroundel and enchantress probably aid more in killing stuff, but the healing makes the difference.

    11. To answer this poll, we have to have heard all their dialogs, including the nine dialogs of each follower to each follower (I like the dialog between Eirena and Lyndon).

    12. Using the AH isn’t necessarily a vote of support for the AH. I feel like I have to use it to play with other people, because otherwise my DPS would be pitiful in comparison and I wouldn’t really be pulling my weight. Nonetheless, your Ironborn idea sounded fantastic to me.

    13. Have to give sarcastic props to Diablo, only game where your followers get more clothes as you level. I miss sexy Eirena πŸ™

    14. “I don’t get it the fan love for glowing tentacle wings and nagging NPC dialogue delivered with a lot of reverb.”


      The fan art for the others angels is why I chose that option.
