So 🙂 I’ve played D3 for a while, sort of on/off.. Mainly as crusader and/or barb depending on my mood
Only just now wondered; Which class is the best solo class WHILE considering the following;
Never ever grp play, for anything (maybe a boost from high paragon lvl friends now and again)
Pretty much lazy as f**k when it comes to avoiding stuff, so want to be able to take a beating, no kiting etc whatsoever
Not too bothered when it comes to playstyle as I never really tried other classes except crusader and barb 🙂
I do not care for min/maxing, at all, but ofc want to go at a ‘decent’ pace 😉 I’m in no rush tho since the faster I’m geared, the faster I’ll need something new to do as well xD And D3 is the only game I currently play 🙂
Also prefer, but not a requirement, classes that don’t depend ‘a lot’ on set items etc to solo 😛

You seem to already have chosen either the Crusader or Barbarian as your favorites, so maybe you should stick with that?

When Diablo III was first released, I played Barbarian alot, and amassed about 357 hours in play with that class. I also played much with Crusader and Demon Hunter.

I’ve since deleted all my character classes except Wizard, as I’ve found that this particular class suits my own play style perfectly.

You can do that with any class. If you don’t want to avoid stuff, all you have to do is player an easier difficulty.

Roland shield bash crusader.
lmost mindless gameplay (at low difficultis at least).
You only need 3-4 pieces of Rolnd’s set (plus one off item) to start doing heavy damage.
You can craft Piro Marella (one of the best shields for the spec) and you are going for the 1H version you can also craft the Devastator mace.

Best DPS class for a beginner? (Solo)

Question

So I just got Diablo 3 reaper of souls. I know I’m super late. But I finally got it. I’ve never played Diablo before not the 1st or 2nd. So I’ve never played.. What’s the best class for DPS I don’t wanna tank or anything cause I’ll be running through all the ACTS solo. So best class to be..?

Classes aren't really separated as DPS, tank, etc. Every class is designed to play the game solo with multiplayer merely increasing the number of enemies and their difficulty a little bit. You can literally pick any of them. I always enjoyed the monk personally.

I would suggest if you want the best quick pick up and go class for season 13, i would pick Demon Hunter. If you play seasons you get a free six piece set, and demon hunter is Shadow this season. It's amazing right out of the box.

Also if you don't want to play season, i would recommend starting in a season to get the jump start of the free set, then in the future just stay in non season. although seasons are where it's at!

DH is easy to play, specially the UE MS, just vault AA MS and repeat. Also the Shadow set is easy to gear, specially the set itself (free this season) and the weapon (only two options). The other options are Jade WD (not the easiest build to play), Earth Barb (lol), Innarius Necro (necro is the hardest class imo), FB Wiz (another good option), Sunwuko Monk (harder to gear, not so easy to play) and Invoked Sader (no idea here, only 50 of my 3500h are on Sadler).

You can use the DH to farm regular rifts and bounties, do speed 85s solo and do every conquest in this season.

OP is a new player, he won't be playing rat runs or meta in the near future, and he can build a zmonk/znecro/zbarb/WW zbarb in just a few hours if he really wants to play rat or meta. Building a dps meta/rat build at this point is super hard for a new player, people are asking for 2.5m+ dps on the necros, building a RGK is super hard because ias and cdr breakpoints, and the trash killer WD/star pact wiz is even harder at this point without a full party helping you with level and gear.

I get same killing times with a hammerdin like I have with multishot DH

level 4

You're doing something wrong as a dh then. Then again hammerdin is not really great anymore.

level 5

-2 points · 8 months ago

Maybe you are doing something wrong as a hammerdin. They have not received any nerf but only buffs. They are dominant.

Multishot DH is the most potent class to play by miles. The difference is not the number but the attack rate which is insane using the DH multishot build.

However, Hammerdins crit numbers just go through the roof, especially after the major buff to the hammers.

DH is easy to play with a very high reward. I always recomended to go with a DH as a new player and it worked out fine for them players.

I just can't agree with you, I'm sorry.

level 6

ZakarumLoZ

Hammerdin is not dominant at all. Condemn is.

shadow is incredibly boring – not sure I agree with your suggestion here.

Whatever looks coolest to do. All classes are good. Be aware that the story mode is more of a tutorial and will be super easy if you find some legendaries.

doing the campaign is easy, just play whatever seems fun. all classes can absolutely beat the campaign. diffulculty stuff doesnt come until post lvl 70 with adventure mode.

Wizard is sort of aglass cannon imo. But all the classes can put out some incredibledps if you gear up correctly. Bol

level 1

Sanctions23

1 point · 8 months ago

I think demon hunter, barbarian, and wizard are the three best beginner classes (in that order).

level 1

UncleDan2017

Every class can do GR100+ fairly easily, so it doesn't really matter.

I personally think pet based Demon Hunter is the most straight forward and forgiving class for a beginner. It’s basically just drop turrets, have all the farm animals, and do a lot of right clicking with some occasional left clicking. Plus you have two CDs to increase damage when coming up against champion packs.

I think it’s funny that you’re assuming that OP knows what these terms are.
