Come in and join the fun! We have started a little project that were hoping to get a lot more people to participate in. All you have to do is click on the spreadsheet link below, add your name to one of the columns, and go down the list rating what you think of each skill on a scale of 1 to 5. Different people are taking the ratings a little differently but don't worry about it, just rate them however make sense to you. At the bottom of the sheet, there are different tabs with fun charts showing the overall ratings of each class and of every skill. The more data we get the more interesting the charts are so were hoping to get a decent group to put in their ratings. Here's the sheet:
Thanks a ton to Capt Goodman for putting that together!
And Varquynne has put together this cool script that shows the data in a different format:
Here is the original post from me that accidentally started this if you're curious, but it's pretty but obsolete now. :P
SpoilerOk, maybe not that scientific. :P I was looking over the skills noting which skills I like and didn't like on each character and decided I was going to rate the overall coolness each of the skills on a scale of 1 to 5. I was basing this mainly on whether I thought the skill was well designed or interesting and less on my personal like. For example, I don't personally much like pets and I hate long cooldowns but I still gave Gargantuan and Archon 5's. I then averaged out all the skill scores thinking that it would be an interesting way to rate the classes. Here are my results, obviously based on what we currently know about them right now (also, ignoring any rune possibilities):
AVERAGE SKILL RATING
Monk -- 3.95
Witch doctor -- 3.91
Demon hunter -- 3.87
Barbarian -- 3.63
Wizard -- 3.56
To my surprise, my beloved Demon Hunter did not come out #1 though this is mainly because I gave Shadow Power a 1 based on my dislike of its current description. If it turns out to be awesome, she would easily rise to the top for me. Otherwise, a this does accurately reflect my interest in each of the classes right now. No surprise to me that the wizard is at the bottom because she has pretty much always been my least favorite. But overall my biggest surprise is that they came out as close as they did which means that though I see a lot of room for improvements here and there, overall I'm really happy an excited about all of the classes. Good job Blizzard!
So anybody else wanna get this nerdy with the ratings and see what they come up with?
