DnD - Rangers and the like 10+ years ago (Just liked bow users)
D1 - Rogue (played all three of course. Rogue was first and played multiple times)
D2 - Bowazon (loved the ranged CC and decent dmg, very appealing and enjoyable to play)
WoW - Hunter 6+ years ago (Wanted a bow user, am now a bit turned off by them, because of WoW's horrid design, and re-designs, and clunkin play style, and armor designs too, and pets being important and nice but die all the gd time even though we need them.)
D3 - DH Two biggest concerns about this bow user. In WoW, Enemy on hunter = no dmg. And CC's need to be easy to apply, not like how trapping is WoW.
85 Orc Hunter
I'm a complete noob to diablo so I have experience with the first 2 but I'm standing between demon hunter and barbarian for who will be the main, won't know for sure till I experience them in action, but I got a good feeling with demon hunters
I love ranged classes and my bowazon and javazon were my favorites. However, i don't think ill ever play hardcore again. when my 78 bowazon died because of some guided arrow townportal hostile pker, i was depressed for a week. i think i actually cried under my desk. just normal mode pls :)
My pre beta thought is that I will be playing a Demon Hunter for multiple reasons.
1. I like to hang back and stay at a safe range for maximum survivability.
2. Do not have to worry about getting up next to a named mob for loot drop when playing with other people.
3. No ammo resource management (arrows/bolts) required in D3 so no running out of ammo.
4. In my co-op group we have a Wizard, Witch Doctor, and Barbarian so for better item sharing possibility a different class is ideal and the Monk is the last class i will probably make (does not seem to fit my play style).
Of course this is all subject to change when the beta comes out and I try all the classes.
I like Sasori's take on this, it's really a pre-beta look. After all the videos start flooding out from beta or if my dice land nicely and I find myself with a beta key and get to try it I may or may not change my outlook. However for now Demon Hunter holds my interest above all the other classes, ranged has always been a favorite of mine but more than that the way they've crafted the demon hunter was just perfect.
1- Their story is amazing, it's not like a sect of people just going about hunting them down it's a family of survivors taking vengeance.
2- The Discipline and Hate combinations sound by far the most fun to use out of all the new mana replacements, juggling a quicker hate bar and a survivability and trapping bar is badass.
3- I've played a lot of ranged characters in my life and it's a must to have a "GTFO" button, that roll/dodge/whatever is perfect for quickly getting out, or in to trouble.
4- None of my friends seem to like them for some reason so all the better for me in my future team compositions.
I think I already posted in the other "why DH first" thread but I have more reasons
First, the dual resources, just adds so much more depth to the game, more strategy, set traps, trigger hordes to attack, wait... and BOOM, attack!
also, if you run out of resources you still fire arrows from afar that still do a good deal of physical damage, but w/ the WD and Wizard (my 2nd and 3rd playthroughs) if you run out of mana/arcane you must flee to let it regenerate, or get in close to do physical damage
Second, Demon Hunter FTW :P str8 to Inferno
