I started a couple of weeks ago with a friend of mine cause he had some time off so we played 2player for much of the journey.
My first char was a Monk and I have found WD to be more fun, perhaps because i'm not constantly running in to attack then kiting while i wait for CD's.
I pretty much only played SC upto killing inferno Diablo so i'm probably considered less than a beginner looking at what the scene is like now.
I've got 2mil to spend on L60 gear, i've seen a few budget gear guides but some of the stuff recommended is pricey on the HC AH but i'll keep checking in for good deals :P.
I've really enjoyed HC so far because any close calls really evoke a thrill and everything feels like an achievement, reaching 60 for example.
My aim was to reach 60 on HC, i guess the next step is to trudge through inferno.
Hardcore is definitely the right way to play the game.
