So I started a new character tonight, a rogue on nightmare. Fuck that noise. I'm going back to a mage for my nightmare run. I died so many times in the tutorial area. I've gotten so used to using a mage that I can't handle the melee combat for some reason.
I thought Archer was a lot of fun & I think you might like one too. Basically like a physical-based mage that is very mobile during fights (can move while you attack rather than being rooted to the ground like a mage) and relies less on ability CD's while doing more DMG with regular attacks; they're made to initiate combat too, so is a good pick for your character/spend most time controlling. Also it's Archer. Get it, Sterling? Get it? Yeah.
If only I could play as a magical Archer. Or maybe I should spend the next 20 hours trying recreate Archers likeness in game.
