Q u o t e: to me a barbarian is all about smash, bash, decapitate, next mob plz!
I was kinda sad when i watched the barb skills...
Ranged aoe, ranged stun, ranged leap aoe etc...
LIke, wth are they turning the barbarian into? =( I'd honestly love to play a barbarian but if they are anything like they were in D2 (just plain crap) or turned into a ranged aoe guy I'll just play a wiz.
Q u o t e:
If leap was single target, and lead into another attack skill that required you to leap in order to do it much like the monk skills are supposedly workin i'd be happier with that. but watching 4 barbs LEAP spamming around to kill mobs doesnt' seem like much of a barbiarn to me ya know?
LEAP (aoe splatter!) LEAP LEAP LEAP (4 barbs all at once go go go!) LEAP LEAP! LEAP LEAP!!!!!
wtf are you even talking about?
Firstly, the Barbarian was a great class in D2, maybe is wasn't your cup of tea or you just plain sucked at playing the class, but it was far from crap. Can you name any build that can roflstomp ubers solo without a shield? I can, my Frenzy barb.
Your idea of making barb skills to resemble monk skills is terrible. the whole combo thing is what makes the monk special, no other class should have that system for attacking. By giving it to the barb it you effectively make both classes less special.(the 2 melee characters need to feel different and have distinct systems to handle combat..)
I'm really not sure what your problem is with the new skills..... In D2 warcry was an aoe stun, max leap (not leap attack, just leap) would stun and push back the entire screen and then some.
What they did for Leap Attack is a huge improvement. In D2 is was possible the barbs single worst attack skill, although it could do massive damage at max level, due to the mechanics of the skill it was impossible to use effectively.
Those who say "it can not be done" should not interrupt the person doing it.
