No lie, I was about ready to write this game off until last night.
I got it last week and promptly made a witch doctor, the closest thing there is to a D2 necromancer. I loved necromancer, so I would undoubtedly like witch doctor! Wrong.
So I said to myself "Hey, you liked sorceress too. Roll a fucking wizard! That's a sure thing!" Wrong. I didn't dig it one bit.
I always enjoyed Amazon as well, so I rolled up a demon hunter after that. No go. Felt too assassin-ish for my liking.
So then I tried a barbarian. I knew what to expect from this, and I got it: boredom. Although I do give Blizzard credit for making the female barbarian look like she is strong enough to actually swing an axe. :P
And then there was one: monk. I saved it for last because it sounded like a D2 paladin. I hated D2 paladins. But then I started zipping across the screen punching zombies in the face and roundhouse kicking skeletons from one side of the screen to the other, and I realized I had saved the best for last. I fucking love monk. :P
Looks like I might make it out of the first act after all. I was starting to think it wouldn't happen. :P
