Hardcore and found-only. My internet connection is slightly wonky so I haven't done the first thing yet.

I may well look at doing this sometime this month though. Probably start with a wizard. That's what I like to play.

Yep. My characters are already mostly found-only, but I would go HC all the way. Fortunately my IP has been stable enough (knock on wood while throughing salt over my shoulder) that DCs and lag have not been issues.

and the Wizard is just a jerk.

nah man, he's the best, especially paired with the Scoundrel.

Nothing against the design technically speaking; just thought his personality was jerky and didn't want to play as one for the longest time because of that fact. =)

wait until the expansion came out and/or the game dropping to $20 rather then $60... if even that or wait for a couple of months while the final product is being finished since we all know blizzard always releases half finished products

Instead of stating them all at the same time (in two waves) I'd start one character ever 5 lvls or so, and level the characters like that. And I've started with a witch doctor rather then a wizard.

Well since patch 1.07 I changed my play style. Almost uped my 5 hc characters to level 60. So much fun ( thanks red gems;D ).

How about salvaging more low level items to craft at low levels? Anyone else have an opinion on this?

thats what i did when i started leveling alts, picking up blues and yellows, grinding whatever wasn't and upgrade then craft hoping i would get an upgrade.

and of course the big ruby gem for the headpiece.

Try to stay away from the AH as much as possible it's just to easy to find an upgrade which takes 85% of the game away( items hunt).

I would personally start in Hardcore instead of Normal, focus on crafting right off the bat, and pick up everything instead of holding Left CTRL + Mouse Over to see if it’s worth picking up or not. Also, I would initially roll with a Barbarian who uses nothing but 2-handers.

wait wait wait, you can left ctrl and mouse over items on the ground and see their stats?

Lol.. E-x-a-c-t-l-y what I thought! Damn.. you learn something every day! :)

Being honest here:
I would not invest so much (just a dozen of millions) on resist gear right away.
I would invent the WW/EB wizard build
I would exploit the wizard tp/archon bug to farm A3 from the beginning and sell my profits
When the, bug had been fixed I would take a break to wait for improved leg with twice the drop rate / MP levels

Reach 60 fast and do what im still doing right now, farm/exp runs.
I still lack a WD.

i would get 4 copies of d3 and multibox. it's true that you have to gear/level 4 chars, but it's so sweet playing all 4 at once afterwards. (e.g. it'd be epic playing my wiz/monk/barb/dh at the same time).

In softcore it has no reason to restart a character, it will have same stats, the levels will be the same, and weapons too. There's lack of customization there. Just using AH better.

It make sens to start a character in hardcore if new one or if previous was died.

I try to hit lvl 60 in one day with all the exp + items i have farmed.

I'm thinking of starting a monk with all crafted and found items, no ah.
