In my experience retribution has been amazing. Currently I am playing two dwarf chars with max con and lone wolf with retribution up to 22-24 lvl and its a lot of fun to me with comeback kid and morning person. Especially when a melee comes in and does whirlwind and then takes 110% of damage dealt TWICE. Archers kill themselves, mages kinda do a funny run back and forth thing because their casts hurt them so much more. So far its the only build that makes me laugh in combat.

DOS:EE though, I laughed a lot with pretty much any build because for some reason the combat was just a lot more fun.
