    If Followers were Classes, which D3 follower would you play as?

    Alright, there are some threads discussing about certain controversial info about the Followers... But we are lacking a not-so-controversial opinion thread... And thus here it comes... I have noticed many people see the appeal of the current followers, even saying that they would have loved playing them as classes...

    If any of the 3 followers (The Templar, the Scoundrel, the Enchantress) would become or would have been a playable class, which one would you use? Why?

    Take into account that, if any of these would have been classes, they would have more skills to use and would be male/female... So be creative in your response!

    NOTE: This thread is not for discussing if it actually is possible or not to any of these to become classes in any expansion, nor is it a space to whine/argue about current D3 classes... Neither is it a thread for discussing about the Follower's system or it's not-implementation to MP or Higher than normal difficulties... It is only an opinion thread for an imaginary situation.

    ___________________________________________________

    I'd love to play a Scoundrel... As it is, its playstyle would have been similar to the Demon Hunter, but I happen to like the Scoundrel's look and personality more...

    If he were to be able of using swords with fencing (swashbuckler style) he would have been the perfect class for me hehe...

    Female scoundrel because the game is missing a female character with a mustache :whistling: Blizzard did go in the right direction with the barbarian girl but forgot the beard.

    More seriously, still the Scoundrel, I prefer him over the Demon Hunter.

    None of them. They are simply not needed plus I almost always play multiplayer anyway.

    If you go with a snappy one-liner it's usually a good idea to read more than the thread title ;)

    Probably the Scoundrel, for the same reasons you've given. That mustache just oozes style.

    I don't really care. Probably take whatever looks best. I just don't like investing into something what will be useless very soon.

    Re: Which D3 Follower would you play?

    well the most obvious answer would be, i would use them all eventually. so if i had to pick who i would go with first, probably the scoundrel as i love ranged characters. if i was to take all 3 classes and combine them with the 5 we already have in place then i would probably use the templar first as the demon hunter would be my ranged and wiz my first caster.



    edit: i think people are not understanding the thread.....or maybe i am the confused one?

    Thread is about which one you would want to be a playable class. If it meant giving up one of the current classes, then none of them. But if its just an extra then I also say Scoundrel.

    Scoundrel, without any doubt. He looks a lot more diablowish that the demon hunter. Anyway I'm a bit worried about the "bondage" and "rain of gold" skills, specially in an hypothetical PvP

    This is not a thread to discuss the viability of Followers, or what you think of how they were implemented. There are plenty of threads to currently do that in.

    As a primary Monk, I'll use the Enchantress.

    Just thought that with your Assassin fetish you would prefer something more exotic.

    If there's an armor dye, is there a hair dye? Monk in black hair is nigh identical to 'sin...:scratchchin:


    IDK, I just need a blaster.

    So go Beardude + Pedostache. Scoundrel is teh dee-pee-ess, and by your facial hair combined, you are a truly the greatest hero/sidekick combination to flamboyantly roam the Sanctuary.

    I think its called "bandage" and not "bondage" :rolf:

    A PvP skill called "bondage" could fun though :wink:

    Bored bored bored. Follower discussion value pretty much died instantly when Blizzard said "lol, co-op tutorial."
