Just freeze everything on screen.

As for others... Monk (male), Wizzard (female), Barbarian (male), Witch Doctor (male). Probably in that order, but it will be a long time before I start them seeing as how much time it will probably take me to finish the game, as in really finish it. Assuming I don't get annoying and just re-roll the next class in line of course.

As for the gender choices, purely quality based on comparison videos (animation, walking, emotes, skills, armor).

DH: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rihKvheRpDE Male sounds better (in dialog) but has really long arms and walks really funny (for a guy). I guess it's normal since he's carrying a bow, but it kind of looks awkward. The pose kind of ruins all the animations, armor, etc for me.

Monk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIgrCSUGUsQ Male sounds better, looks better, has a bear (so plays the role better), dresses up better, and walks better.

Wizzard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZ6ryOVOnB8 Probably would play a male wizzard if not for the female wizzard being funnier, talking funny, having more fluid animation when casting sells, fancy armor animation, better (armor) color pallet and detail, and not to mention she walks way better.

Barb: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMdS8JdsTX4 Mostly personal preferance, kind of think the male version looks just a little bit better.

WD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gI6fA6SeNA Male version walks way better (sick old man walk), and also has a better idle animation (the trembling). Female version looks like a wizzard dropout. The armor also looks a lot more interesting when it's on the male; it's something like Scottish skirt things, it's not so special if a women wears it, since then it's just a skirt.
Have to say these were pretty nice to take a look at. Helping to make some decisions on which genders to go with for at least the first playthrough. Confirmed the decision to go with the female Wizard with that class.

For the Wizard going to try and use as much fire as possible .

Sorceress is not in the game. Wizzard is the closest equivalent.

It's actually pretty good idea on your say 2nd or 3rd character. Assuming you've beaten Inferno, going hardcore is the only way to do a hard reset on the "skill" meter. Basically, if you beat it once on any softcore character, going in it again isn't proving much. It's effectively just "grind" since you know the game inside out now (more or less). Going in it hardcore, even on the same class you beat it on, well that's a different story. You don't even have to beat the game, just get as far up as you can...

Losing hardcore characters (esp when corpses are no longer lootable) is going to be a major heartbreak which I might not be ready to accept. Most likely wouldn't start one until I have everything memorized and thought out as well as class skills build into muscle memory.

It's been bugging me for a while, but why do people call them "Wizzard"? Is it because of Blizzard?

I see some people want to try their first character as hardcore, so they have a thrill of permanent dying without knowing what is waiting for them.
Well, I'm not trying that .


For me, my first character would be Witch Doctor, and next is probably a monk focus on healing, or Wizard.

Typo ?

In any case, the male Wizard would be my first character, as for how I'm going to play it... I haven't decide yet

Still not as prevalent as how Diablo 1 had three classes: Warrior, Sorcerer, and Rouge.

I rmb my hammerdin having outrageous dps as well...

Monks with exploding palm, having its damage scale with mob health might make it amazingly powerful late game similar to corpse explosion.

I'm gonna play a DH but I'm worried smoke screen might become too overpowered later on. Datamining shows that total discipline can go up to 120, which is a lot of smoke screening.

For those who don't know, smoke screen makes you invisible, immune to damage, breaks all crowd control effects on your char, and also makes you immune to further crowd control effects. And you can still attack while under the duration of the skill. Seems like an ez mode button.

Where did you get that?
From what I see in the beta, it only makes you invisible, and any skill using or attacking will reveal you.
