Going to probably start with a Barbarian as a HC character, but not too sure about it. Having a Demon Hunter for instance might have a better chance of survival with the slowing traps and being ranged, or any other ranged/magic class for that matter.
Knowing nothing much of D3 yet, the simple answer is: whichever has the most survivability. It sounds like WD is the equivalent of a necro, so if it has permanent minions up that sounds ideal for slow safe MF runs.
It can gear up any other class I want to play for PVP etc.
I'm going to play through normal and probably push to 60 in Softcore first (sorry!) and my main character is going to be a Barbarian. Second choice character is a monk, so I'm going to save that for hardcore as if it's one of my favourite characters to play, I won't mind levelling again and again and again and again
I've never been a big HC fan and I'm not expecting to get on very well it, but I fancy the challenge and I'm determined to at least finish normal on one class in HC. Who knows, maybe I'll catch the HC bug and my Monk will make it into Hell!
