    I rolled a Monk at the last minute- had been planning to play a Barbarian all along but I changed my mind. I love it- Monk is like the perfect blend of dps, paladin style healing, and a bit of tanking for good measure. Not to mention you get kickass fist weapons.

    So what class are you?

    Wizard, and dying a lot. I went Glass Cannon so you can guess I am not the most durable. On top of that I focused on Intelligence rather than Vitality so I only have a thousand and a bit health.

    Archon form is damn epic though. It is stupidly damaging with a disintegrate beam that deals 300% damage and no resource cost. If you have a supply of small minions you can remain in Archon mode for minutes.

    I just got to Act 3 last night and have died 4 times, I think? On normal. Not bad considering I'm a monk, who are supposed to be the high-dps-die-easy type. It's probably because I'm using a shield xD

    And speaking of, that's why I love Diablo. Classes are not at all set and defined. Monks are supposed to use two-handed daibos, or dual-wield fist weapons. But why not a fist weapon and a shield? Now I have a crapton of armour, healing abilities, and I still dps like a bad mofo.

    I'm also a Monk, thought it would be the most near an assassin from diablo 2 considering that i understood the demon hunter is more an amazon trap-laying class.

    I like that one ability that does 777% weapon damage xD

    Seven-Sided Strike

    Just to warn you guys, Nightmare is a lot harder than Normal. All Elite monsters have 2 modifiers and you will be taking 1000 damage per hit from some enemies by Act 2 (yes in Nightmare).

    Past level 30ish you start to noticeably gain life. This is because the amount of life per point of vitality increases by 1 per level.

    Monk, it's dope. Using Dash, Heal, and 7 Sided Strike. I mix it up between energy builders.
    Only a little into act 2.

    I've only played coop so I haven't died yet, it's pretty easy with two people.

    It's pretty hard for me so far as a Wizard, even in Act II, maybe I should dispatch the AI companion to make the game easier for myself, cuz he's really useless when it comes to damage. (Templar mostly)
    But Shock Pulse seems to be working so far. (except for dat butcher man)

    Demonhunter on Hell - act 2.

    Even though I got around 17k hp now along with ~2000 defence, i die in like 2-10 hits, if it wasnt for my high chance of dodging (30%!) and smoke screen (3s invulnerability, anyone?).

    Not to mention, when i first reached act 2, i had to go help my mate go through all of act 1.

    Then I added DSG when I reached nightmare and have played through over half of it with him (nightmare/hell)

    Ploughing through the hordes of hell with a Wizard, currently in the beginning of Normal Act 4. I rarely use potions, and haven't died yet. Some waller rares are causing troubles sometimes.

    Has anyone else noticed that their stats are fluctuating without gear changes? My damage, agility, and armour all seem to move up and down, without me even touching my gear. Last night I noticed I had 600+ agility and when I checked this morning it's sitting at 400-something. Weird.

    Vengeancekael, keep the templar as he does not make enemies tougher and heals you.

    Maker, that build will not work later in Nightmare and Hell. You will need to use Mirror Image and Diamond Skin. I also advise using Galvanizing Ward to help regeneration (which is very useful against Elites with Damage Reflection).

    Hmmm. I've been using the Scoundrel the whole game so far and haven't really regretted it because he's ranged, but he sure as hell doesn't do much, and I've been dying a LOT now that I'm on Nightmare.

    Not dyed, just stuff I've found and crafted :)

    I'm aiming for Galvanizing Ward, but I still need 11 more levels to unlock it. There is no doubt in my mind that the build needs to be refined for the increased damage intake in NM and Hell. I'm just using that one because now it works like a charm.

    There's no Necro in Diablo 3. Witch doctor, you mean?
