I love the DH, so that'll be my main. I usually play melee classes, but I've really enjoyed my experience with the DH during beta. Monk is a close second, but not before I get my DH to inferno. Oh and they also look really badass!
Wizard, ever since seeing the class reveal trailer and still standing.
I always preferred the 'classic caster' archetype.
LOl my friends are all like that too everyone seems to like the range especially after the dominance of the sorc in D2, that's why i am going Barb unlike op my friends actually need a tank.
Also re: the ranged being better for Inferno, that's b.s. anyone who has listened to the interviews? there are walls and canoneer abilities designed especially to prevent ranged pussyness so think again.
At this point i know in a matter of a couple of weeks i will be playing all classes. But first class is going to be dependent on my friends.... I will play anything so i figure i will let them choose first and then i will choose.
--> it won a close battle with the DH, I like pets, I like the class concept as a whole and in beta I loved Sacrifice
--> love how the class looks and play, also love the lore and the class "dark" aura, think it has a very interesting set of skills.
--> never been a fan of barbs until I played beta, it was so very fun to play with it and/or at its side.
--> like it when it brags and like the gameplay too, love the female version.
--> the class I understand less, thought I wouldn't play it too much, then I got in the beta and the Monk was a pleasant surprise.
That's the order I'll start with and than I'll see what I like the most.
It would be interesting to make a new topic in a couple of months to check if we changed our opinions on this topic.
Barbarian. Simple because Blizzard will mess him up in the latest patch like in D2.
In D2, the only reason you need a barb is to BO. Then call CTO, barb become useless. Sure it is fun to have a singer or a frenzy double swing, but it cannot kill in a5 hell, unless you have the dupe gears.
