    ill probably be going demon hunter first. It was the class that i was most enjoying during the beta. Only concern is that i tend to always get bored of range type classes in rpgs. Just hope it doesn't happen this time around.

    Does anyone know if this will be server based? Or is it similar to D2?

    It's still server based (ie, you need to log into battle.net to play). There's no offline single player or LAN play :(

    I don't like it how you have to be online to play, but it was like that with Portal 2 and Skyrim and I never had internet problems.

    partying with friends is really simple. And if no friends are on, it has auto matchmaking. You select what quest you want to do and it puts you with a random group of people who are wanting to do the same quest. Its really quick and easy.

    Only 2 more weeks! Keep changing my mind on my first toon.

    Barb looks so much fun but I think every man and his dog will be rollin the barb.

    Just character, just a nerd way of saying character

    I have previously despise the word but after being on SWTOR for awhile there vocab has rubbed off on me :-(

    Take it as a compliment that you don't know!

    I know it is a diablo thread, but it'd be good to discuss builds etc separately, so it doesn't get bumped back pages. Or maybe despite not playing 'games' for the better part of 2-3 years, I'm just a theory-crafting nerd.

    I'm going to roll a barbarian, however I'm not yet completely decided on which route I'll take. I prefer melee characters in general, but think I'll primarily go DPS and carry a shield for if/when necessary.

    My thoughts on the tank build:

    I like how you can swap out runes.

    For ignore pain, it's either iron hide or ignorance is bliss. Both are situational; ignorance is bliss would be better when you can predict huge damage, iron hide when it's a sustained increase.

    Revenge/Provocation: Look pretty standard.

    For war cry, although I haven't seen tables, I can't see Hardened wrath being superior to Veteran's warning (15% dodge) or even Invigorate (10% health + a HOT.

    I'd go Wrath of the Berserker. Looks like the best skill in the game for mine, especially for avoidance if you rune for 60% dodge. That's 12.5% of the time you can maintain 60% dodge.

    Anyway, an interesting build I was looking at:

    or
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#ahYViP!!YYYaYc
    (minor difference)

    The idea here is to keep WotB up as much as possible, so the majority of skills and runes chosen generate fury.

    I just spoke to EB games where I ordered it from

    No midnight launches because of time difference, the dude told me that EB will be ready for pickup on the 15th at 9am and that the servers go live at 5pm on the 15th

    which makes me believe that the 16th will be a sick day off work to get a full 24hrs in of gaming

    ive been waiting along time for this, cant wait!!!!!

    I'm probably just going to get a digital copy... can buy it now. And I think (anyone confirm) you can download pre launch and it is activated right on launch date.
