    I personally would like to think that Mr.(or Mrs)Barbie destroys wizard as well, but it's hard to say really.

    After the Barbarian kills the Wizard, the Witch Doctor will come in and kill the Barbarian with Plague of Locusts while he's still weak.

    Doctor FTW.

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy


    Even though I'm making a barb, I whole heartedly agree with this. I'm willing to bet there are going to be a lot of deaths due to people underestimating the witch doctor.

    They actually worry me more than the wizzy does.

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    Guys, don't make me laugh...

    Of course the WD doesn't need to cast plagues. He just shall cast Mass Confusion, then Barb and Wizz start to kill each other, and the WD shall finish them like replenish his mana thanks to Soul Harvest.

    Too easy, lol.

    yep



    PD: Mass Confu won't work probably in PvP, but it will do in my posts ^_^

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    I'm going to go with the Barb. He deals a lot of damage, has high hit points, and can close distance with the Wiz and Doc quickly (and dodge their projectiles) thanks to his leap attack and charge skills. He's not as flashy, but I think he has more staying power. Not to mention the fact that of all the D2 heroes, he's the only one (that we know of) that has maintained his sanity and survived the horrors of Hell!

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    The Wizard, Fury looks like it may be the Barbarian's downfall.
    Also Time Stop and Teleport will > him.

    Don't know about now, but back when TMC was still rampant an ES Fireball sorc could easily > a BVC.

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    vaddoff...no intelligent barb player would attact him while slow time is in effect you would probably wait till the spell is either over or that he attacts you. you have to remember, that there is a cool time of 20 sec, so you can´t keep spamming them and hiding inside your own little bobble. On the other hand i think the conjuration spells are very powerful and will be very effective in pvp like mirror image, stoneskin, mighty impact(increases critical dmg which spells can do now) and of course hydras.

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    Barb id say for now, the cool down times for the wizard look bad for extended pvp and blizzard have said they dont want one hit kills in D3 (though to be fair if i remember rightly that was in a pvm context).
    Also they keep mentioning glass canons with regards to there views on the wizard, which doesnt realy fill you with much hope for them in a toe to toe punch up with the barb, which is what it will wind up being by the looks of things.
    Still with skills to be announced and balancing between now and release who knows.

    I also bet on the barb. So far the wizard neither has a target homing skill or a skill for distributing damage over a large area. So hitting a running barb will be hard.

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    What I am more concerned about, is that we seem to be going with calling the Wizard "wizy". And here I thought "zon" and "pally" was bad...

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    barb charges.
    wiz teleport behind barb, just as barb starts his ww.
    wiz cast frost nova
    wiz cast time stop
    wiz gain some distance to be safe and proceed to incinerate barb

    Don't be silly, guys. History always repeats itself. Ranged class will dominate melee class. Then Blizzard will over compensate with melee buff. THEN melee will dominate ranged.

    Edit: also, stop calling the wizard "wizy." Wiz is unique enough and the extra y is a waste of a key stroke. Stop being inefficient if you want to be l33t!

    Re: Barb Vs. Wizy

    good luck with that tactic :thumbup:

    you have to remember something...the cool time for wizard spells is ****ed up, so you can´t realistically do all those things, before you are killed by a smart barb player. You say, that ranged characters have always dominated melee? well the paladin and barbarian were the strongest melee characters and they didn´t have problems against amazons or sorceresses...the necro however is another issue heh

    now in d3 things have changed, and much in favor for the barb. He now has viable ranged attack skills like seismic slam, ground stomp an aof skill which stuns, furious charge, weapon throw et cetera, which should help him even more against ranged attackers.

    That being said, blizzard games have always been very balanced, moreover when it comes to i.e. diablo 2, then as far as i can remember, what really made you a good pvp-player was a matter of skill and cleverness, knowing your character and being able to control his skills accordingly in a syngery with other skills, knowing the other character´s weaknesses, but also items and which ones to use when and where ect. Basically every character could potentially win vs any other, as it just depends on the be forementioned things. Blizzard have a lot of experience, so i think they would use that to make an even greater game and more balanced game, which we can all enjoy, while having a nice cup of coffee :coffee: :d

    Great, the theory crafting starts years before the game is even released. Bottom line, the characters are far from finished, there's no way to tell.
