Monk. You have a no cooldown escape move, a heal, a pet to draw attention, an immunity shield that doesn't suck, and some other stuff. Pretty darn safe.

Monk seems to have a lot of resilience. I guess it depends what you mean by safe though. Generally ranged will be "safer" than melee, but it's all about style.

Hmmm i figured monk but the class with who has progressed the farthest was a barb

so you plan to build a char that is "safe" rather than play what you want?

ive been plowing through the game with honestly not even any real near-death experiences using a Witch Doctor...

has a good amount of heals: (soul harvest, spirit walk, haunt) and the passive which makes you regen 1% life/sec is absolutely amazing. (my regen is over 400hp/sec)

awesome escape mechanisms with Spirit walk, the passive that makes it so a hit that should of killed you sends you into a spirit walk with 10% health instead, the one that scares everything away..

great AOE slow with the grasp move with the slow rune..

and still tons of awesome DPS skills both AOE and single target

((SIDE NOTE: WRITING THIS MADE ME REALIZE HOW LITTLE I PAY ATTENTION TO THE ACTUAL NAMES OF ABILITIES AND PASSIVES!!! lol))

MONK.

DRUNK OR SOBER, MONK IS AMAZING.

look at the furthest progress so far, was by a monk whom died on a2 belail.

i am under geared on my monk and 25-35% through a2 inferno.

Monk is OP. It is why I picked this class even before release.

Monk has gotten farthest at Act 2 belial.
Barbarian has gotten 2nd farthest with almost double the time played of the monk at i believe the beginning of act 2, but died farming in act 1 due to a alt tab.

That being said, i think it's more about the player than the class itself. Monks are much safer however with 2 abilities that grant temporary immunity to all damage. Personally I like wizards, there's no real reason you should ever take a hit unless it's from a teleport mob and even then...
