Play whichever you like the best. They all have advantages and disadvantages in hardcore.
Barbs and Monks will be easiest for some folks, since they can take more damage.
But conversely, ranged classes can kite and don't need to be in melee range to do dps, so to some folks they will seem best.
It really depends on your play style and what you are comfortable with.
Personally, I play a Monk and love it. But I am also leveling a Wizard and love that too. They are polar opposites in play style, but I enjoy them both.
This may apply for SC, but for HC there is a best class, and its the barb followed by the monk
DH is too squishy for inferno, for example
There are plenty of DHs in Hardcore. This guy is basically asking what he can faceroll his way to 60 to. The answer is, if played smart any class. But you should play whatever class you are most interested in. Not a barb or monk because they have better healing. If they bore you its wasted time.
DH in HC Inferno (Act 3-4) is only viable IF you play with a tanking buddy.
I'm in Inferno mode myself, with 55k DPS (pre-SS) and about 400k all resist, 30k HP, and about 5k armor, and I've found that DH Inferno gameplay is one of attrition: attack/kite, die, re-spawn. Rinse and repeat. You WILL die at some point to elites, even if you have great kiting abilities, the margin for error is just too thin.
That being said, Act 2 is pretty easy to solo now (post 1.0.3) without getting killed. Just need to re-roll the tougher elite mobs.
I plan on rolling Barb or Monk when I get into HC mode. The perfect precision required to play DH in HC Inferno is impossible in D3 b/c of issues outside of your control (e.g. lag). One lag spike = 1-2 hits = death.
Not worth it.
i personally love the WD; it was my first hc and made it to 60. then i tried a monk who got to 35 and i just kinda got bored and stopped playing her (still alive) then made a few wizards that died young, followed by a DH that got to 59 then got roflstomped in half a second by champs in A3 hell. and i just started a new WD last night. :)
havent made a hc barb yet though; i went barb in SC and found him rather boring.
