Default What is your favorite mastery II

Since people were still responding to the old poll, I figured I'd post a new one with the addition of Shaman and so we can see if feelings have changed over time with balancing and new content.

I'm playing a demo/ soldier atm and loving it. The demo skills are really fun so I voted for that

I only use soldier for tankiness. Soldier really needs cadence reworked as it's basically useless for melee.

I think it would be easier to say my least favorite at this point, Occultist. Dreggs getting buffed was a good start, but the offensive skills and the classes nuke just seem so underwhelming compared to others (excluding DEE).

Favorite I guess would probably be the new demo.

Demolitionist because versatility.

Using Fire Strike with WPS skills of the Soldier or Nightblade mastery is awesome!

Seems the strong class takes the lead.

I picked occultist, despite it's balance difficulties I love how flavorful it is.

I can build chaos/vitality caster, or melee, acid/poison caster, summoner, etc.
Curse of Frailty is great, and it has a lot of strange synergies, even if they aren't the best in the game.

Furthermore I hope bloody pox will be worked on so it's ultimate viable. Then a new line of synergy will open up.

I think DEE could use a slight buff though, considering I have finally made a fully built 85 DEE build that feels underwhelming.
