...if you already have all the answers then what do you want from us?
Yes trans seahorse is so far very good. Someone mentioned the possibility of ult pets, either ult seahorse (possible?) or other rare ult pets that I might not know about. There's no need for survivability since I don't have a problem doing that with monk because of his ranged nature and staying near defenses to boost them, effectively getting shielded.
And I wanted opinions on the monk from other people with very well geared monks incase there was something I missed.
I'd already gone over it and researched I wouldn't open up a topic like this without doing so.
Otherwise I'd just get trampled on and it would be opinion versus opinion as opposed to practical tests against practical tests as intended.
Well you asked for my DPS numbers and I gave them for 3000 stats. Even though it wasn't relevant to your interests, I concluded that at trans gear level Monk is better with trans seahorse and hero boost (which many will probably care about). I just hope no one reading will reach an generalized conclusion that Barbarian > Monk for all stats at all levels.
(to other people who read this thread, not the OP)
I don't blame you at all for your posts, In fact I feel they do contribute to the thread nicely.
But this wasn't something that I put up for other people to read and take advice from. It was out of personal interest.
*in anti drug commercial voice* So kids, don't use a barb thinking he is magically better than a monk.
^ Now that's going to have very opinionated answers. I would actually answer Jester wielding bow + sword to function as both decent DPS + block bosses + move towers when sharken'd + repair all towers + buff allies. I'm not trying to convince anyone with this answer either, but just my opinion.
EDIT: Probably off-topic, so we move on.
This thread was for my satisfaction, I prefer to use a character on tougher missions who has been proven more effective in one way or another.
Whether I like that class or not.
I mean if this was the kind of game where you could pick and choose who the best class was for a situation just because you liked them you wouldn't need 3 different builders for one mission to succeed.
So sure some people may choose a monk solely because of the play-style, but from my experiences the barb does more dps and has more survivability not only in normal gameplay but in certain situations I put myself in to test aspects of each character in separate ways.
I'm not biased in any way, due to the fact that I've been playing a monk much longer than a barb (almost since day one on my first account) and didn't even start to play a barb after I was well into my second.
So I enjoy the monk thoroughly infact the ensnare aura is my favorite tower in the entire game.
But my findings show the barb to be a better pure dps.
