Witch doctor. I played it in the 3v3 arenas at Blizzcon '10 and wasn't a huge fan, but watching videos of it and looking through the skill tree, it's becoming more and more attractive for solo PvM. Monk is still going to be my first character but Witch Doctor may be a solid #2 for me.
honestly i cant tell, 13 lvls wont determine my fav char of choice
in order for 13 lvls to impress me at the beginning my char say for instance
like the wizard would have to cast a huge dragon out of nowhere that engulfs
everything around the wizard in flames...lol ah im a kidder but seriously! <-----exactly that
I was always against melee classes, well not against but always prefered ranged classes over melee in every possible game, so in Diablo also, but i must say looking vids of Monk and Barb even thinking to go with one of them as first character, which before i would never have thought of. I was really sure i wanted to play Wizard first, but Monk especially lately is looking so much fun to play and also really powerful and this heal boosting also, wow.
I'll probably end up playing Wizard as my first, since that what I usually end up doing:p
Like many others here, I also didn't like the Witch doc at first. Thought he looked like a boring alteration of the necro from D2, but after looking at beta vids and checking out his skills I have come to realize that I probably judged the poor doctor a wee bit harshly at first.
Also really looking forward to try the barbarian. I'm still under the impression that he/she is quite similar to the D2 barb, so It'll be fun to see how an old favourite has evolved. Same goes for the wizard of course.
Witch doctor is the one that's been a surprise hit for me. I loved the necro in D2, but for some reason I didn't care for the Witch Doctor until I actually played him. Strangely enough, it's not because of the pets, it's because of the Snares and DoTs.
Man I thought it was the Monk. I thought he would be getting his ass kicked everywhere coz of low-to-no armour. But when I saw the gameplay videos, I was stunned. The Monk is so bloody fast that he doesn't need a armour. Besides, he has a healing skill as well. Those combo skills are way awesome and I just love the dash. My opinion has gone from hating the Monk to making him my primary character as the game comes out.
