Man...I gotta totally disagree with you, I don't think the D3 team could have picked a better final. Like they said at Blizzcon in 2010, they needed a ranged class. Also, as they said, a darker character was needed to counter the monk being holy and faith based. The monk, lore wise, has his beliefs and faith. That's his reason to save Santuary, while the Demon Hunters are all about revenge and really just killing as many demons as possible. They are a group that wants to bring as much pain to demons as they have caused them (massacring their village).
Really, I can't wait to play a Demon Hunter, and since it's been confirmed that they're not giving out beta keys randomly anymore, we'll all have a better chance to get one lol. Hopefully anyway, because I'm 21 and have been a Blizzard fanboy since like age 10, played everything released since Tides of Darkness and original Diabo, and STILL never have gotten a beta key dammit :confused:
But back to the Demon Hunter, dual Crossbows are gonna be freakin' awesome, I really don't know why some people are hating on DH. Also, I think all hating on With Doctor need to get out of you're D2 rut because no necro, this isn't an upgraded, updated, re-release of D2. We already got barbarian again (thank god), I really am satisfied with the overall feel of the chosen classes. They complement each other perfectly, a desert ranger type of class just doesn't feel right to me, while the dark and mysterious type was just what we needed.
Plus Demon Hunter is definitely an Assassin/Amazon mix, which is my dream come true!..AND DID I MENTION HOW AWSOME DUAL CROSSBOWS ARE! Never been more excited about a game release, Blizzard got a lot better with character balance via WoW trial and error. They designed with the idea of making all classes balanced as possible, no matter the skill tree. Plus with runes there are like some huge ridiculous amount of skill combination's. 70 billion or something.
EDIT: Technically the Monk is the rogue type class, especially in terms of fighting style, hes quick and agile, if you're referring to the WoW idea of a rogue. He's a Paladin/Assassin combo D2 wise. Gotta keep in mind D3 will have at least two expansions, so maybe we'll get a druid type (Shapeshifter, Shaman/Elementalist)?
I couldn't agree with you more on this. Demon Hunter is the answer to our prayers who had been playing since the original Diablo came out & we had to content ourselves with the Rouge & the Amazon of D2.
Attention: IT'S SAFE! Just X out the advertisement over the player, then close the window that will pop out (usually Orbit ad). Then click on the play button and fast forward the movie to 20:15. Enjoy watching the Demon Hunter use his Double Pistol, Triple-Bow Crossbow.
Do not download anything. There's no virus, I've seen this movie 3x already.
How I wish the people at Blizzard would give this Double Pistol, Triple-Bow Crossbow some additional damage (like one has KNOCKBACK and the other pierces target's defence; or both has KNOCKBACK & pierces target's defence) and additional attributes (both have DOUBLE-SOCKETS each),
and make it available to be used in the game for us people who would be buying the Collector's Edition package.
This way, other people playing the game will see my weapon & know that I'm a die-hard player...
Maybe, I cannot use it yet in the Normal mode of the game, but I would be able to use it starting in
the 1st Act of the Nightmare mode and would be able to upgrade it's damage throughout the game until
Act 3 of the Hell mode.
It would be something worth keeping & make you keep on playing the game to upgrade it to it's fullest
to use when defeating the Prime evils of the game.
This will set a distinction between people who purchased the Collector's Edition
and those who are just there to play the game for a while.
As for the Barb, I'd rather have 2 One-Handed Double Sword, with the same features:
the additional damage & each having Double Sockets.

For the Wizard, an orb & a blade (the blade also having additional damage & Triple Sockets).
