We played a couple hours of Dungeon Defenders last night, with new characters starting at character level 1 and getting up to around character level 7. We played on normal difficulty with 1 of each class: Apprentice, Squire, Monk, and Huntress.
All throughout, it seemed like our Huntress was being severely outclassed: she had fewer kills, less damage, and far less effective static defenses than all the other characters. The fact that her traps go away quickly and she can only really ping single targets from afar seemed to really hamper her ability to put out damage. The rest of us were blowing the snot out of goblins left and right.
Were we doing something wrong? Is the Huntress just worse than the other characters, or do we not know how to play her properly? How can we make her effective, thus ensuring all players have an orc-slaying good time?
