a blue already said the WD was in a good place and something they want to bring other classes up to.
I can confirm that we like where the Witch Doctor currently is, and would like to bring other classes in line with them. Nevalistis said it best, though, so I'm going to quote her for reference.
We've seen a ton of feedback lately about the relative power levels between classes, and it seems a good time to explain a bit behind our philosophy of where we'd like to see each class go from here.
The Witch Doctor is currently very strong. That is awesome, and we're happy to hear Witch Doctor players are having a blast with their characters and that players who have never considered playing the Witch Doctor before are giving it a whirl.
The Witch Doctor's current level of power comes largely from the powerful items they have available. Ideally, we'd like all classes to have fun and powerful item builds and that means taking a look at what equipment is available. This is something weâ€™re actively pursuing, and while some of the other classes are almost there, others have some additional room for growth. We've already mentioned some of the upcoming Monk set changes we have on the way, but they aren't the only class weâ€™re keeping a watchful eye on. Ultimately, we'd like to strive for a place where each class has an equal crack at end game success, especially with Seasons and Tiered Rifts on the near horizon. Itâ€™s likely each class will accomplish that in different ways, because they are inherently so different from one another, and thatâ€™s okay!
Allow me to caveat the above with the fact we won't get there overnight. This is an overarching development goal, and a continuing journey rather than a destination. Our work is never truly done, especially because we have every intention of continuing to make awesome items. On our way through this ongoing process, we appreciate your feedback.
