After playing open beta weekend, I guess I will go this route (last positions may change a bit, but Wizard is definitely first):

Wizard > Monk > Barbarian > DH > WD

i dont see why people dont like the WD (in general)

I mean how can you hate a dude with parkinson, in undies, with a big mask that yells at people while it throws spiders and toads.

Epic in my book

Plus he eventually becomes creepy

While my fav in D2 was the Necro.. bonemancer ftw!
I think that WD has SUCH a better concept than the prior

His soul feast is one of the skills that are raising concerns on the official forums as it easily doubles/triples his damage at lower levels, and looking at the numbers there's no indication of it flatting off at higher levels.

I played a WD in the stress test. Have to be honest, it got kind of boring. He feels more like a support character.

I tried out a Monk as well, was instantly more fun. But maybe I'm judging to quickly, I'll wait till I get the full game to choose properly.

The D2 wizard had 2 major playstyles (and probably a few dozen minor), one was the spellcaster (bonemancer) and the other was the petmancer (summoner).
The WD in D3 seems to be primarily inspired by casting spells; his pets (ugly as they are) are mostly for limited duration and spellcastign combat. I can see how you like the WD if you were playing the necro as a bonemancer, as a necro summoner though, I'm fairly disappointed in the WD.

Hack 'n' Slash - I'll start off with Barbarian.

I tried DH and really wanted to like it, but the automatic gun style laser beam graphics killed it for me.

I generally don't like casters, so I'll play those last.

I played D2 for like 10 minutes a couple of years ago and realized I am a graphics snob now and couldn't deal with how dated it looks IMO. I wasn't a gamer back when it was released so I have no affinity toward the IP. I got into PC gaming when Torchlight was released, found TQ, yadda yadda....currently playing Rift MMO and have TLII, D3 CE, and GD all on order.

The Beta seemed exactly like TL (for obvious reasons), but really seemed more in line with a mindless, but fun, hack and slash. I'm sure the difficulty will ramp up at some point, but I was a bit let down with how easy it is and how little the maps are randomized. But, it'll still fill my need for exactly what it is - I don't expect any more from the game than what it is, because I was never a fan with unrealistic expectations to begin with.
