Yeah Belial seems to be a bit of a douche when it comes to melee.

I managed to avoid his large aoe ability but dodging his other attacks seemed harder. I survived on normal but can't imagine it being to much fun on harder difficulties.

Yeah... Barbarian is insanely fun and they did a great job with the physics. Played a Barb to 15 after getting a WD to 7 and I think I'm going to shelve the WD for awhile. Barb is just way too much fun.

Of course it's not tanking in the sense of a traditional trinity system but you sure can take a lot of the pressure off your ranged dps buddies with stuns, knockbacks and the grip ability.

The tuning is much better than the time I spent in beta, but I can't wait to get out of normal. The way I'm playing I should be dead every 10 minutes, as it is nothing has killed me or even come close. Between Crippling Wave, Resolve, Mantra of Evasion and Breath of Heaven (Circle of Scorn because fuck wasting an animation for solely defensive purposes in normal) I teleport in with Dashing Strike and proceed to hold shift click.

Sew visceral and amazing~

Also my friends suck so I've been playing solo a bit and the Enchantress is hilarious. I got ambushed by a knockback big thing in the second act... She charmed it and it killed all of the mini creeps that came with it. I was all like :|

I tried my standard Barbarian setup and died horribly so I went with a Frenzy primary/Hammer secondary, dagger, shield, with pain immunity, intimidating shout, leap+armor and a few health generating passives and he went down fast on normal.

Yeah that caught me off guard too.

Just finished nightmare difficulty on my wizard, woo! I hate Mortar-Jailers, Mortar-Wallers, Illusionary-Wallers and anything with shields >.< Died more to those combos than any boss fight.

Get to start on hell tomorrow :D Hopefully by then some friends will have caught up after I'm finished at uni. Soloing sucks :(

Leveling as caster class gets much much faster/easier when you party with melee classes.

I've got the Templar helper, which actually helps quite a bit (by keeping mobs off me, dunno if he's doing anything in regards to damage), so I can only imagine it would just get better with an actual player.

I can't get the templar to keep any attention at all off my wizard. So I just figured to hell with it and built an exploding wizard, since everything's going to be on me anyway.

I just try to position myself in such a way that the mobs have to run through my Templar so I can stand a little behind him with my Demon Hunter.

Probably doesn't hurt that I have Demon Hounds to help distract as well. It's not a perfect solution by any means, but it keeps enough off me that I usually don't have trouble surviving.

Hell to the yeah... I've been running with a Monk & Barb so it's allowed me to focus on having like 4 AoE's 1 group buff and 1 solo target ability.. I've gotten a 147 Massacre and a 46 kill Single attack. Muahaha

Oh yeah.. Azmodan killed me with his stupid fire ball after I ran out of the AoE.. hurt like hell.


Anyone whose going to try this game on Hardcore is asking to break keyboard / mouse.

Being able to go into a more defensive setup is pretty nice on my Barbarian when grouping with people.

Is my usual world and dungeon build

but for bosses I
ll switch to something like this for more control.

In the near future I want to brave a Hardcore play through with a friend and I think our goal is to farm our way to be significantly over level for content to increase survivability. I wouldn’t dare make an attempt at it until I feel that the servers are more stable, nothing would be worse than server problems resulting in a death. 

When my external hard drive spins up my entire computer locks up until it finishes. Happened during the boss fight at the the end of the first part of Act 3. Pissed me off. I immediately went and disabled hard drive sleeping.
