Out of the Blue

I'm hoping to get back to playing some more Diablo III today, as I only got to check it out the first night of its release. I'm guessing my level nine barbarian is the lowest ranked character of anyone who bought the game upon launch.

My Barb is level 30 and chugging through Act III. I've created one of each class, but none of the others have even gotten past the Skeleton King yet. Once I finish normal with the Barb I'll probably take another class (non-melee) through; any votes on which one?

I've died a few times with the Barb, mostly because of the play style that class encourages: rush in and keep swinging. It's easy to get in over your head if you're not careful.

I went through on a Barb first... And am messing around with a Wizard now, so that's what I would suggest ; )

As for Barb... past lvl 15 (maybe a bit earlier), I stopped dying... I would Furious Charge into a group... Ground Stomp (with suction) to stun, then Rend and if it's up, Revenge... I'm hoping most of this spec will be viable in later content, but I may have to change Charge to Leap or some such...


I am now a 32 wizard just beat the game 4 mins before work this morning, and while I was chugging along fine, starting of Act III, I hit a horrible wall that sucked until I hit 30. Maybe later Mages get some nice AOE damage, but it was painful in Co-Op games.

Next stop, Monks!

Could be a gear issue, just look for a good wand with high damage, int and attack speed. For AoE my favorite is a frost nova wave of force combo, that seems to clear out most foes pretty quick.
