That's why I chose Demon Hunter, Frisk.
From the character text I read I thought he would be pretty good at keeping monsters at bay.

I'm also playing Titan Quest at the moment with a bowslinger and am learning to play more defensively.
I used to always pick a melee class, but I like ranged better now.

May well try the witch doctor with his summoning soon.

I hated the WD from the open beta weekend.  Every single one of his abilities seemed like it was the result of a 10 year old brain storming.

Blizzard Dude 1: Hey, we need some kindof short ranged AoE attack
Blizzard Dude 2: How about he breathes fire?
Blizzard Dude 1: Yeah, but we already did that in diablo 1 and 2 (inferno)... tell you what, instead of breathing fire... maybe he breathes.... BATS!
Blizzard Dude 2: What if the bats were on fire?
[fist bump]

Blizzard Dude 1: Hey, this class needs some pets
Blizzard Dude 2: Skeletons?
Blizzard Dude 1: Yeah, but we already did that. 
Blizzard Dude 2: Hmm... Pets... Cats, Dogs, Hamsters, Donkeys?  All boring.  How about Zombies?  Everyone likes Zombies
Blizzard Dude 1: Yeah, but we already have zombies.  You're killing them all day.
Blizzard Dude 2: .... Zombie.... Dogs?
[fist bump]

Blizzard Dude 1: All right, now we need a charged bolt equivalent thing for our dear witch doctor?  You know... some kindof randomish AOE thing?
Blizzard Dude 2: [puts down his diablo 3 collectors edition bong] Umm... lets have him throw a never ending supply of jars... and in the jars, will be a bunch of spiders the size of a small zombie dogs
Blizzard Dude 1: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
Blizzard Dude 2: Yeah, would you rather think up something else, or take another hit on this bong?
Blizzard Dude 1: Pass it over here.

That said, I've been having a ton of fun, and right now I'm torn on whether I want to smoke theory @ twilight struggle this weekend, or blow him off and slaughter demons instead.

Didn't know you played TS.  Very cool. 8)  IRL or over the interwebs or both?

To those wondering about length:

I just finished normal @ lvl 31 - just a few minutes under 15 hours.  Felt fine to me.  I was less thorough regarding full exploration from Act 3 onward, but I wasn't exactly rushing either.

Anyone want to play nightmare tonight?

Maybe the TS can include a list of player names so people can add and find each other?

What does TS mean in this context?  If "Twilight Struggle", then I am really confused about what you are referring to here.

I had the same question, and I came to the conclusion that it stood for "Thread Starter"... although anyone in Southwest CT who would like to play Twilight Struggle this evening should PM me immediately.

Teamspeak I guess, or more likely Threadstarter.

Topic Starter. If he can put a list in his starting post, it could be really helpful.

Huh, I've never seen that acronym used.  "OP" for "original poster" is much, much, more common.

It's not that they've forgotten, it's that we're on page 3 and no one wants to click back and look at page one. ;)

It depends, what does CT stand for?!

The Netherlands is a very small country, but going to the top of the country feels like going to the edge of the world.

To give a comparison: The Netherlands is only a little bigger than the New York metropolitan area.

Ahh, remember the days when you dutchies used to own New Amsterdam till we came and took it off you. (And then of course we graciously and of our own free will gave it back to the American people to enjoy)

Sorry to disappointing all you Canterburians (?), but CT in the context of my US-centric view is Connecticut.... specifically the town of Southbury.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Southbury,+CT&hl=en&sll=41.277806,-72.831116&sspn=2.144548,4.22699&t=h&hnear=Southbury,+New+Haven,+Connecticut&z=14&iwloc=A

I am told however, that the realm of sanctuary is equally close for all geographies... anyone interested in playing on the America's server tonight - say 8pm eastern?

Alas, I'm on the Euro server which, luckily, has fewer connection issues.

If you want to learn, there are plenty here who would be willing to show you the ropes.  If you are ever motivated and interested enough, just PM me.  SO fun.
