Before I played the beta I was all about the Witch Doctor. So I finally got my hands on the beta and played through with the Witch Doctor. It was a lot of fun, as I hoped it would be. But then (after watching some Donnie Yen movies) I tried out the Monk. Man... I never thought I would take to the class so well. Usually lightly armored melee get the sh*t end of the stick, but not this time around. I actually played through the beta twice with the Monk, because I was having so much fun.
With the news we received today I'm still liking the monk maybe even a little more than before. Dexterity will increase the monks dmg, dodge and crit!!! I don't know how this won't be handled with a nerf. I hope they don't screw up the runestones because the monk doesn't have that many skills that appeal to me. Another important thing to note is how will the 'seize the initiative' passive handle the changed to attributes, that was by far my favorite passive out of all the classes. Regardless I still think I give the monk a shot as my first character, I know too much about the class to turn back now.
The Monk will be my first character because not every character can kick as much ass as the monk. He/she can dodge, deal damage, heal, and reflect so much damage back at their enemies. also the perfect combination of generators and spenders with mantras to compliment their efficiency.
I will definitely be playing Monk first. I decided that when they first announced the class. I think my second will be either Barb or Wizard depending. The only thing that could change my mind is if I get in beta and end up enjoying the wizard more, because I think I'll enjoy those two classes equally.
In Diablo 2 I would ALWAYS play the assassin. Every time I played up to level 90 and then quit long enough for my character to get deleted when I would come back 100% of the time I would re-roll an assassin. I'm one of those guys that just loves to play the same class forever.
I'm sure Monk will be my main character just when thay released information of him. But... It will be female monk. Why? Becouse she has white hair. I love white hairs in game characters so the choice is make. And of course gameplay also looks enjoyable. Ah, and I like word 'Serenity'.
Yep, and he'll be my main for a very long time, possibly "forever". At least until I replay him to 60 in hardcore x). By far the most interesting character to me, and his skills/animations suits me perfectly! Oh, and that beard!

"I just wish Jay Wilson would stop delaying the game to personally draw pictures like these."
Yeah, will of course try out every other character, but the Monk looks like my kind of guy. A bit like a smiter from d2, but with more spells to use and a bit more diversity. Hopefully they won't feel like paper when standing against a boss
no, monk is probably gonna be my 3rd tho! i loved the barbarian in D2, and also the Amazon, so i'm gona play the charachters in a special order
