    Returning cant decide WD/Barb/Wiz. Fresh start

    Hello

    I've returned in the last couple of days, mainly to scratch an itch but with the news of the demise of the AH...well I'm suitably excited again.

    I've decided to return to my D2 HC roots and really kick this off in earnest, however the early days were so up and down in D3 that I kept myself to SC (then got fed up and stopped) so I've NO gear or gold to speak of (I dont think a L18 barb as a highest character counts )

    So, my question is a simple one - of the three above, which one is 'safest' to get cracking in HC with no hand-me-downs? i.e. essentially a full on scratch start.

    I've pretty extensive L60 WD experience from SC, have barbs and wiz at low L30s there too, if that helps.

    Thanks in advance


    wrong sub forum, can a mod kick to D3? Apologies!

    Moved.

    Barb is going to be the safest for sure, he has some really great defensive passives and natural 30% damage reduction.

    WD is probably next, summons and a great escape skill and cheat death passive.

    Wizard is the hardest for sure.

    Good luck in HC!

    Thanks for moving

    Might revisit my barb, he was a mighty L18.

    I was messing with the hyrda/bliz wizard in SC last night when the AH news came in - played pretty easily and safely I'd thought.

    I'll mooch around the barb guides

    All classes are certainly viable in HC, especially in low MP levels. I play a DH in HC and it's fairly robust. Barb is just the easiest to make a lol-face-tank with.

    Nope. I did play her SF up until I hit 60 though. I'm just poor in HC

    Hello. I don't know if helps, but I've asked a similar question to yours a few days ago. After getting a WD, a barb, a monk and two wizards to 60 I think I would have to say play with whichever you enjoy the most. I found out that I enjoy playing with wizards the most, so a third one it's on the making at the moment.

    Yeah I would say go with the one that brings you more fun. Barb would be easier now and with low gear, but maybe for D3X I would say WD, because barb seems to be useless after the expansion....

    Wizards the toughest and most challenging!
