Me and my brother will be playing as a duo for most of the time. I will be playing barb and he'll be playing a monk. We figured that would be a decent durable combo.
After playing the free beta and reading about the game I get the feeling that getting through normal will be a cakewalk just to give you a feel for the game and that the more challenging part begins in nightmare or possibly hell. I would say nightmare now at launch since the lack of great gear will make it tougher.
With that in mind I think AOE builds will be the way to go in normal for sure, but the further into the game you get single target DPS builds will take over more and more.
Here is the build I'm thinking of using for my baba, it's a bit different than what I've seen from others but I like to be different so why not?
Now I would like some suggestion for a monk build to complement that bard build. The only thing we know for sure is that we'd like to use the mantra of conviction combined with Reclamation rune.
Would like to have good single target DPS but since the baba main skill is frenzy which is single target DPS the monk should be the one more focused on dealing AOE dmg if that is possible. We havn't played a monk during the beta so we have no clue about the class really.
Appreciate some suggestion for builds, more focused towards hell/inferno.
Any reason why monk/barb would not be a good duo?
