So I recently came back to the game, wanted to give it another shot now that some stuff IRL has cleared up to give me more time to play after about a year of absence. I wanted to try out Purifier and I can say it’s been a lot of fun, gotten farther than I ever have before (almost beat Vet lol) but it has really become too painful to play. I have neuropathy, tldr is it causes me pain to have to constantly be hitting buttons and I have a slow reaction time because of it. Puri seemed pretty good for that since the WPS build only has a couple active skills and otherwise just holds down the LMB to fire strike. It was a beautiful, fun fireworks display but having to constantly dodge, reposition, etc just isn’t working. It hurts too much after about 30m. Even with all my resists capped (which I know gets even harder later on) I just take too much damage.
So now I’m here to see what other options I have, particularly in the facetanking category, low skill usage, stuff like that. Chances are if the class is boring to play it’s actually what I need (sad, I know, but it generally works out well for me). I was thinking maybe some kind of Warder? I’ve seen them mentioned a few times as insanely tanky, but that could have changed to another class? Maybe a pet build (I seem to remember pet builds actually being quite button heavy though)? But I’ve been gone so long and the game has changed quite a bit so I don’t know much at all right now, kind of flying blind. There’s lots of classes in the compendium but obviously I’m not really sure what I’m actually looking for so that doesn’t quite help yet.
Any help is appreciated, I really want to enjoy this game, and I do, but it’s just hard to play for me these days. Also, no, a gaming mouse doesn’t work for me since my thumb is the worst offender of all and I can barely move it to hit side buttons on a mouse. I tried, it failed, hard It may not be possible for me to clear everything, I may not get to do high crucible or whatever the upper limit of that expansion farm thing is, but…it would be nice to at least clear everything in the main game on Ulti? Maybe even the gods or whatever the uber bosses are? Might not happen, I know =/
