    Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    Hey,

    I know, similar threads exist, but I'm sorta interested on how oppinion on classes changed specifically after trying out the beta and how much it differs from those, that didn't try it out.

    Feel free to describe your impressions here :)

    Personal oppinion:

    I was primary playing Necromancers and Sorc's in Diablo 2, so Wizzard and WD were my primary interests.

    After trying out the beta (tried barbarian last..), I immidiatly felt in love with the highly dynamic and mobile gameplay ways of the Barbarian and Demon Hunter, and while I'm still very amazed of other classes, I'm going for a barbarian first (i think)

    Re: Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    Originally my notion going in was that my first character was going to be a monk. After playing through 3 of them so far (monk, wiz, and DH) I find that I really, really enjoyed playing as a wizard. I was expecting the wizard to be cool and potentially be my 3rd-ish character, but now I'm going to start out playing wizard first. Not really sure what it is I like about him so much, but he really is fun to play as.

    I know i have been a hardcore demon hunter fan for a while, and probably still will start one, but I really was won over by the Barbarian Trailer that was recently put out. That one battle shout where he transforms, so reminded me of saijens of dragon ball z. I am a hard core geek, and that really appealed to me.

    Pre beta experience I was really up for doing a monk after trying it in beta no matter how much I tried to like him he just felt off for my playstyle. After having tried all the chars I liked wiz the most so gonna go with that.

    Definitely going with the barb. No beta here, but I'm always a huge fan of melee characters. Plus, I liked Barbs in D2 as well.

    Re: Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    when d2 was announced my first class choice was "whatever character uses a bow"

    after all classes revealed my first choice was DH

    after beta started but i was not yet invited my choice was DH

    after playing beta my choice was DH

    in the last 2 days my choice changed to the Barb. what changed my mind? not really sure. i guess i think it will be a fun starting char that will be good at finding loot for my other characters? we still have a month though soooooooooooooo there is a good chance this will change

    I somehow think, that everyone still suffers under the eni-or-sorc-mania. :p

    Re: Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    I had my heart set on a WD. This was the case even just up to a week ago, but suddenly, I'm feeling just a BIT conflicted. I'm still heavily in favour of Male WD to start off, though ^^.

    But I really like the Monk as well.

    Demon hunter allllll they way up to the Barb reveal video. Ill still probably end up starting with a DH, but its not as easy of a decision now.

    Re: Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    I was going to start with DH but will prob start with a WD now after playing beta. But thats mostly due to more early weapon options for the WD. Most likely will play them both up to 30 at the same time and then stick with 1 to 60 after that.

    Re: Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    well the most amazing thing about this poll is that after voting, I was taken to the correct thread !

    thank you diablo.incgamers staff for fixing that most annoying bug !

    the 2nd most interesting thing about the poll is people with no beta experience pick the monk as their first choice,
    but people with beta experience choose the monk as their 4th choice

    doesn't look good for the monk

    my choice, (no experience) I wanted a summoner - so the witch doctor is out lol, just too many cooldowns

    so, wiz it is
    although I'll probably still try a WD out

    Barb seems most straightforward choice, most fun skills in beta, but also judging from spotlight videos released so far.

    Re: Character choice - Before/Without and After beta play

    I think this thread will get really interesting after the open beta

    I'm going to try the Witch Doctor as my first open beta char (just to see if the summons are as disappointing as I think they are)
    Then I'll try Barbarian (never liked melee classes in D2, but people seem to love the Barb in D3, so I gotta see what all the hoopla is about)
    Then I'll try the Wizard.
    Demon Hunter next.
    Totally skipping the Monk.

    That's my open beta plan. Can't wait to see how my preferences change after actually playing the classes.
