Which class in your opinion is looking to be the best for hardcore play?

A balance of damage and survivability etc.

Anything with a decent weapon and lots of vitality.

WD :D

Pretty much anything except the barbarian. :/

I actually really like the barb, but having to be in close all the time would be murder. At least at lower levels before you get a lot of life-drain gear.

Witchdoctor seems like a good bet. Pets, ranged attacks, snares.

Monk... has heals and lots of mobility.

In my opinion.

Edit: Not to mention the 30% damage reduction (Barbs have it too)

Geared barbs prolly have an easy time, just an assumption. Tons of defense skills-- monk is much squishier

For not quite so geared first runs imo, DH or WD

Melee DH IMO

I'll be inferno clearing inferno as a hardcore barbarian in 72 hours.

You'll win the award for first hardcore death.

I don't know if there'll be a 'best' class for hardcore. All I know is I'm very much looking forward to kicking stuff and punching demons with my fists as a Monk.

My lvl 13 WD and a friends 13 Barb melted faces in Beta (also when we were leveling and both at like lvl 9). You just have to play to one another's strengths. But, it is on normal, and only Act I. But grasp of the dead + Soul Harvest + Bats or darts is super effective. Even more effective than water on a Geodude.

No way to know what's best. My guess is that the witchdoctor would be the best.

Wizard: Force armor lets you live through 2 hits that would normally kill you. Combined with potions, that gives you a lot of potential.

If there is a best class to play in hardcore, then Blizzard isn't doing their job.
