    What will your HC main be?

    I know there have been quite a few polls regarding the main class you will be, but I have not seen one regarding HC only. I made this merely due to my interest, and hopefully the interest of other HC players. I included a spot for you SC guys so you won't feel left out

    i am thinking WD or wiz for my hc char. first hc that is. i will be maxing all 5 in sc first then switching to hc to keep the game going longer so my choice as of now will probably change. hmm for the sake of the poll i will sad WD for what i consider better survivability

    You would have to be pretty suicidal to go for a Barb as your main HC char, considering how difficult they say Inferno is

    See I was leaning to WD at first too, but from the gameplay videos, it feels like you have to be up close to use many of the skills (excluding pets of course). Whereas you can bomb from afar with the DH or WIZ. And the statement that Barb may be suicide in Inferno is reasonable, but I still feel like they would tank better than the monk?

    I don't think barbarian will be a bad hc choice. He has a lot of survival skills and passives, and actually has a decent selection of ranged attacks (more than the monk). Don't forget about innate 30% damage reduction.

    It reminds me of torchlight where the ranged destroyer was my fav hc class simply because the damage reduction meant he wouldn't get one-shot.

    Certainly a Wizard for me, because I've always played casters in the Diablo series (the sorcerer in D1, and the sorceress in D2, ad now, the Wizard in D3). I'm looking forward to playing Softcore first through most difficulties, and then playing through them in Hardcore. Casters have the lowest defenses, so playing them in Harcore is a real rush, I still remember playing my sorceress in HC. It was awesome, best adrenaline rush ever, the feeling that your next step might be your last, and you only have one life.

    Re: What will your HC main be?

    Yea I agree with you Kar, regarding the Barb. I am more wondering if the Monk would be the worse choice of the 2. I mean your talking about a dexterity based character trying to tank Inferno. My main point when picking a class for HC is what can survive in Inferno and contribute to a good team.

    Anyone who will be on US Hardcore, also feel free to add me.

    DH. I play for fun, so I pick the class I have the most fun with, not the most survivable, even if that means more deaths.

    Re: What will your HC main be?

    I think that one of the examples of how good of a job the D3 devs did, is that there is no "perfect" class or build for any role in the game. You can make arguments for any of the five classes as the best class, but none of them are really OP or UP.

    As for me personally, Demon Hunter will be my main PvP char, I am leaning towards Wizard being my main SC PvM char, and probably Witch Doctor as my main HC char. He does have a lot of map control and CC spells, and pet heavy (probably something like Mongrels plus Wall of Zombies + Grasp of the Dead + Haunt + Acid Cloud + Spirit Walk, with that passive that gives you four Mongrels, Bad Madicine and either the one that increases your mana or your damage) should be able to keep control over the battlefield and stay in control of the sitiation.

    Re: What will your HC main be?

    watched an incgamers stream the other day

    http://www.twitch.tv/incgamersd3/b/316356749
    starts at 40:15

    4 naked monks, no potions, hard core

    at 2:02:05 they finally get to the pillars before the SK

    they actually have a pretty easy time

    the tail kick stuns and they can heal each other

    2:06:10 the SK battle starts
    they don't have it so easy with the SK, and their are some deaths, but they still win

    it certainly looks as if the Monk will be one of the easiest to HC
