Because exist classes with other counterpart classes.

Warlock was compared to mage in the early days of the game but began to be compared to druid or templar due to lower aoe damage than mage. Now the beastmaster has come out and templar's comparison is charmer(according to the post). I think Beastmaster and Warlock are completely different, to be honest.

Same

 

The truth is we don't have a Sentinel counterpart for the Warlock or a Legion counterpart for the Beastmaster.

 

Here goes a long text explaining why comparing classes doesn't make sense:

Spoiler

The Beastmaster is a damage dealer that depends on minions, and the only class focused on minions from the Legion is the Charmer

However, the Charmer is not a damage dealer, he is a mix of every role.

The only Sentinel class who is also a mix of every role is the Templar, but the gameplay of the Templar is totally different from the Charmer.

The Templar was literally made to be a "stun dealer" counterpart of another Legion class: the Warlock.

But again: the Warlock is a magical damage dealer (kind of, since it only have 3 useful damage skills), and what is the only true magical damage dealer of the Sentinels? The Mage.

Buuut... the Mage has a stronger AoE damage, while the Warlock has a stronger single-target damage.

And as we know, the best AoE magical damage dealer from the Legion is the Chieftain.

To finish that long text, the difference from the Mage and the Chieftain is the fact that Mage is pure magical damage, while the Chieftain is hybrid (physical + magical). That makes him closer to the Beastmaster, who also deals hybrid damage.

 

So it is basically a loop.

 

 

Amazing post though! It just made me realize how similar are BD and Reaper icons

I agree with this, but this post is quite interesting. How about do you think about it in many ways like this instead of generalizing it to one thing?

I second what Khrone said.

It's a little bit more complicated than 1 to 1 parallels between classes. For example a Sentinel team of Paladin + Templar have Warlock-ish controls but also Shaman-ish support traits of a Legion team, but they're also tankier so add a barbarian/DK to balance the tankiness but now the Legion team has more damage and more range, so add a Beastmaster or a Ranger to increase the range damage of the Sentinel team, boom you have a somewhat balanced composition in terms of what each team has to offer.

In some cases one side has the upper hand in damage, while the other has tankiness, or one side has the upper hand in control and the other side has resistance and control-counters.

 

In general you will find that some classes have some aspect that their ''counterpart'' doesn't, but you will find that in another class on that side.

Like in DK vs Paladin, yea they use the same gear, however their skill sets are completely different. But Paladin + BD vs DK + Shaman is a much better comparison because now you have more balanced control capabilities, support, tankiness, and damage output. Obviously a BD deals alot more damage than a DK, but the same way Shamans deal alot more damage than Paladins while offering somewhat similar support, Paladin is much more tankier than Shaman, but DK is also much more tankier than BD, etc...

 

Another way to look at it is the unique skills that are spread around each side on different classes. Like resistance skills, cleansing, buff removal, stealth. In that sense, Chieftain and Mages are counterparts since they offer the same resistance support and buff removing skills and good AoE damage. But obviously they're not perfect 1 to 1 parallels, because Chieftain also has very high single target burst damage like a Bladedancer, while Mage has more slowburn ranged damage like a Warlock.

But each side has pretty much identical or similar skills, if not, then a combination of skills equals another combination, albeit not necessarily on their "counterpart" class. For example Shaman has an AoE heal Totem, that Druid doesn't, but now Beastmastser has a similar skill.

Charmers and Beastmasters both have very strong summons, but doesn't make much sense to compare the two classes beyond that because they're otherwise completely different.

ok, in general the concept of classes being counterparts of others is not that much good itself but between all the classes you could pick for warlock to counterpart it... a summoner? for templar is not also much close since, even if they have *1* summon, its not the rounding of their kit wich is a support with huge (and incredibly annoying) crowd controll

i do see that you're trying to target the "most similar" in terms of counterpart but i dont see the beastmaster/warlock as even close to eachother? it would've been better to say beaster and charmer since they're both summon oriented classes with one taking value of one immensly strong summon while the other has multiple summons and has more support (heals) capabilities in the party they're in, still making them too different in my eyes for being real counterparts

i think these are the closest to be real counterparts but i would put warlock instead of necro since only 5 player main them in total between the two classes

yes, the preview of the reaper itself says it would be an counterpart to the bladedancer but still you cant recreate the broken energy of a bladedancer by using a different recipe
