Which class did you pick?

Just curious what character classes were the most popular. I chose Witch Doctor because using animals as your attacks seemed the most random and amusing.

I started with the wizard. But sooner or later I'm probably gonna play with them all. My next will probably be the witch doctor.

Monk, I named him Khan. He's a badass.

I have been flipping through a variety of characters actually. My mains are Barbarian and Wizard though.

#7 Posted by Ben_H (3468 posts) -

A barbarian. I named him Conan, because why not.

#8 Posted by valrog (3648 posts) -

Haven't started yet, but Demon Hunter will be my first character.

#9 Posted by loganWTF (95 posts) -

I'm going with Monk because they seem to be well balanced. I'm interested in checking our demon hunter though.

A monk, and I feel like I'm constantly rewarded for that decision every time I figure out a devastating new combination of skills.

I'm really interested in Witch Doctor and somewhat into the idea of the Demon Hunter, so maybe I'll make those down the line.

Delicious female Demon Hunter, all day, errday.

#12 Edited by benspyda (2054 posts) -

It seems Blizzard made good on making all the classes unique and equally as fun to play. Although Demon Hunter seems the least liked out of my work collegues.

Barbarian, was as close i could get to a viking. Played the Mon class in the Beta, that was pretty badass too.

Fem-wizard represent! I like that they give each class a personality, it seems. She's a little cocky, my wizard.

The other three I played in the beta were tons of fun as well. Looking forward to losing weeks of my life to this game.

#15 Posted by CornBREDX (6254 posts) -

I made a monk. I had already decided I was gonna play one way back when they revealed the class

#16 Posted by Dead_Cell (66 posts) -

Female Demon Hunter, seems like a good class to use to kill demons.

Fucking WIZARD! And I'm loving it!

Wizard. I always start out with either a ranged character or some type of mage with RPGs and I really enjoyed the Wizard during the open beta.

#20 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12248 posts) -

Demon Hunter is a lot more fun than I thought it would be. A lot of leaping around and unloading on fools with rapid fire. Yeah, they can equip melee weapons but I don't really see the point.

#21 Posted by Osaladin (2545 posts) -

Witch Doctor, started out as a monk, but I can't seem to go back. The spells are just way too awesome on the WD. The wizard looks fun though, I'll try him out next.

#22 Posted by coaxmetal (1667 posts) -

I was initially inclined to go witch doctor because I was all about the necro in diablo 2, but I really really don't like the look and the whole voodoo thing, so I'm going barbarian.

#23 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8609 posts) -

Witch Doctor.
 
Giant zombie, 4 hounds, a hex shaman hexing enemies into chickens and a array of acid/fire area attacks.
I'm freaking loving it.
 
And the masks, oh the masks.

What level do you get a giant zombie?

#25 Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles (1702 posts) -

Fem Wiz because shes hot lol, seriously though I usually prefer ranged classes in all likelyhood though I'll roll one of each class.

#26 Posted by destruktive (1069 posts) -

starting with demon hunter but I've gathered a bunch of gear for a low-level barbarian and wizard, so I'm gonna go for those next I guess.

#27 Edited by Hilikus (280 posts) -

Monk lady named Legs. I launch giant bells at people.

#28 Posted by Capum15 (5025 posts) -

Witch Doctor, but I started a Demon Hunter for multiplayer.

19, the gargantuan.

Rolled a Monk cause I'm a big martial arts nerd. Kung fu! Kya ha ha ha!

#31 Posted by benspyda (2054 posts) -

Looks like Monk is a favorite. I may give that a try next playthrough with a different character.

#32 Posted by uniform (1838 posts) -

Demon Hunter.
 
I wasn't expecting Monk to be this popular. Interesting.

#33 Posted by bemusedchunk (742 posts) -

Witch Doctor.

Because I like throwing jars full of spiders over railings.

#34 Posted by Redhorn (211 posts) -

I am a powerful wizard, just like IRL.

#35 Posted by d00dCOMEON (24 posts) -

WIZARD

WHO HAS NO SURVIVABILITY PAST NORMAL MODE.

#36 Posted by Omanyte_Jackson (30 posts) -

When i hit dudes they fly for miles! Barbarian all the way!

#37 Posted by Pezen (1701 posts) -

Barbarian. Partly because I like to get in there and make them kneel to my strength.. but also because most around me picked something else so co-oping would be more interesting with a little bit of diversity.

#38 Posted by bunnymud (716 posts) -

Wonder why so many are picking monk? I thought DH or Barb would top the poll....as it is now

#39 Posted by Sourceguru (17 posts) -

Wizard: loving the combinations of spells to use.

#40 Posted by Sterling (2801 posts) -

Monk for my first roll. Probably due Demon Hunter or Witch Doctor for the next.

#41 Posted by Seppli (10250 posts) -

Demon Hunter. Love the ressource mechanic, and the high mobility - and I'm one hell of mine layer. Explosives baby - they make me happy.

#42 Posted by mason (265 posts) -

Wizard.

I like laser beams.

#43 Posted by sixpin (1316 posts) -

Right now I'm focusing on Grognak the Barbarian. I'll get around to trying them all out sooner or later.

#44 Posted by HarlechQuinn (451 posts) -

Started in our two player run with a Wizard out of curiosity, because I never played a wizard in the old games.

For an upcoming four player run I'll roll with a Monk.

Later on I'll might check the Demon Hunter as well.

#45 Posted by MannyCalavera (105 posts) -

Currently i have 2 characters. A Demon Hunter on EU servers and a Witch Doctor on US servers? Why? So i can play with my european and american friends. But i'll try all the classes, i have no doubts about it.

#46 Posted by ApolloBob (570 posts) -

Wizard with proud pointy hat.

#47 Posted by freakin9 (1173 posts) -

I've been using the Wizard, not that I've even tried out the other classes. But her Cyclops move is pretty satisfying. I have a feeling I'll eventually have to move on from that spell and that's probably going to be tough to take. (not that I have any idea what my future spells are).

I made a mistake, I rolled a barbarian instead of leveling my main witch doctor and now I can't go back. DAT LEAP!!
