Paladin (Still the most solid reliable class)
Assasin (Fireball changes synergize very well with Poison + corrosion boost)
Rogue (Requires JJ due to Dwarf nerf, but very strong with Namtar's Ward)
Warlord (Still solid and reliable)
Wizard (Great with Wharrgarbl, HALPMEH, or PISORF)
Monk (Abundance of magic damage monsters has dropped him quite a bit)
Sorcerer (A beast with Fireball combined with Wharrgarbl, Crystal Ball, and/or Fireheart)
Berserker (Unable to efficiently use Fireball, but new magic damage monsters balances that out)
Gorgon (Fireball + Wharrgarbl synergizes VERY well with her built in poison strike - damage is still low though)
Thief (Trisword nerf hurt a lot)
Priest (Trisword nerf hurt a lot, but health buff bumps him up to roughly equivalent with Thief)
Half-Dragon (Capable of a lot of burst damage, but has problems with magic resist monsters)
Fighter (Levels up really, really fast!)
Bloodmage (Provides nothing another class can't get from just finding BLUDPOWA)
Tinkerer (Provides nothing another class doesn't provide, especially due to item costs being reduced)
Crusader (Probably has some broken Mana Leak combo, but damage boost is too conditional)
Transmuter (Has potential, but balanced far too weak)
Vampire (A Dwarf Crusader who can't get resists. I'm serious - do the math!)

You agree that Vampire requires Dracul right? A Dwarf Dracul anything is better than a Dracul Vampire. The Vampire gets 11 Lifesteal for 440 conversion points, while a Dwarf gets 10 damage reduction for 450. Then the Blood Pool healing, Poison/Mana Burn Immunity, and extra health barely make up for the reduced health regen and lack of resists.
But there's a lot of dungeons where the Bloodmage can't use his blood pools.
Darvin wrote:Vampire is much better than the current Transmuter. In fact, I don't think he belongs in bottom-tier at all. If you scum for BLUDTUPOWA, he's actually a scary spellcaster. This is because BLUDTUPOWA allows you to convert lifesteal into mana, so killing a popcorn monster is basically a full mana restore for a Vampire. It's hard to get a strong Vampire off the ground and he needs a lot of scumming, but if everything lines up he plays like a high-tier character. This guy could very easily be overbuffed, since his primary issue right now is luck of the draw in getting the right altars/items/glyphs...

There's lots of dungeons where the Sorcerer can't leverage his strong low-level performance.
