Starting with Wizard and Witch Doctor with Group A of friends, and roll a Barbarian on the side for Group B. Focus leveling the smith and jeweler first for long term benefit. MF and such can probably wait for a while. Eventual goal is to be Infernoing it up sooner rather than later, though.
Initial plans will be slow and steady with a WD all the way through the difficulties, unless ofc the ADD kicks in.
I plan on doing as little to none MP as possible, not gonna bother with RMAH, sell excess stuff to AH for gold and buff up the two vendors.
I'll probably do a grail thingie with SS and a checklist someone will write up soon and certainly hope for some unique tourneys here on the D3 SPF ( god that feels strange after all those years)
Perhaps start another toon for MP with some of the people here too.
Once the game is in full swing and I start planning about MF characters, I'll be grailing as well. Back before Death_Dealer created the Medieval Mart spreadsheet for D2, I made a simpler version for my personal use. So if someone doesn't do the job before too long, I might undertake the project of creating a checklist for D3's items using Medieval Mart as a template.
I'm taking off work on Wednesday to play all day since I'm waiting on the CE to get delivered from Amazon. Once I load up the game though, I'm starting off with a DH Male. I'm still torn between a DH and a Wizard but I think the DH is more to my liking. Can't wait to start playing.
I'll be starting a DH to play solo and probably a Monk to MP with my husband in the few hours a day we are home and awake at the same time. I expect my DH will level up far faster. I may play a Wizard through Normal as well before moving anyone into nightmare.
I also will go ahead and make one of each class, not to tie up names, but rather for the little bit more storage room, as I will be playing all 5 classes eventually, so I want to hang on to good things as I find them.
Most of my gold will go into storage space at the beginning, I think. Once I get 2 or 3 extra rows opened up, then I'll probably get the BS up to level 4 or 5, before going back to get more storage space.
I may or may not find time to play in the morning, since I have to work, but after work, I'll be at least trying to log in. We'll see how that goes.
Plans have changed. I was planning to beat the normal with barbarian today. Not happening. The servers started to kill my mood after 8am PDT. I'm on act 2 since then, after 10 hours of barbarian action. I spent part of the day typing my password and I'm eager to play with DH (so cool...) and Wiz (so effective, cool, "whatever I have teleport"...).
I finished the first tab of stash and I'm working on the 100.000 gold for next tab. I have around 30k gold and never ever looked into BS face. I think he hates me.
I'm saving a lot of garbage for twinking my other characters. Problem is I need my stash back. For that reason, I'll work on pentavirate act by act, so I'll know what to keep and what to let go... I'll only keep my precious legendary stupid belt of nothingness, just because it was the first one.
