Given that it scales with the amount of players connected I doubt I'll have too much of a problem. Plenty of people will be playing single player so the 1-player connected mobs will be balanced well enough.

This... ^^

The difficultly scales with number of players connected, solo play in this game through all difficulties is available and achievable. I might spend a little bit of time with some mates, though it's harder now a days to setup a time to game. I love that it's a drop in drop out type game. :thumbup:

I'm confused at the Demon Hunter though, it appears that they are supposed to focus on single target DPS, but quite frankly they just don't do real amounts of damage to uniques/elites (high burst, but you can't keep it up due to hatred drain) in a 4 player game.

At this point I think the Barbarian is the best (cleave, ground stomp, hammer of the ancients - Fury needs points to increase the ticks and duration), closely followed by the Wizard (Either MM, Frost Nova, Arcane Orb or MM, Frost Nova, Ray of Frost Wind thingy).

Clearly this is the beta, and a level 13 cap doesn't help you see things - but this is the impressions i'm seeing.

Crafting has replaced gambling and is much better i think, particularly given the shared chest/gold. Definitely worth focusing on early to get a leg up (particularly if you're a DH/Wizard).

Overall I'm a bit disappointed they've simplified skills/talents, but it still plays and feels the same except with a very strong focus on co-operative play. I really don't think they want anyone playing the game Solo now, given that its impossible to Ninja as well as all the helpers (Warp to Party member) to get closer to the action with your fellow adventurers.

I agree with most of your points. I think with the right gear, the DH could be a great replacement for a hammerdin though, which was a very effective build in D2. All depends on how quickly hatred regenerates late game.

NM and Hell will be fine by yourself. In fact Hell could often be easier by yourself as public scrubs are often terrible and make stupid mistakes by running into the next area and kiting a champion mob back into you etc.

Inferno they have said is playable by yourself but certainly not optimal.

I don't mind the quickswap skills now, particulary with the Nehpalem Valor announced it provides a good enough incentive.

I do think the DH is weak up to level 13, but is kind of inevitable that one class is weaker in the earlier stages where you have a limited number of skills.

I think the DH will come into it's own in Hell/Inferno simply as it is ranged and with good play style is far safer than a barb or monk.

heh, I'm hoping for the opposite :P

I'm hoping that by Inferno, ranged classes will be getting 1shot by stray arcane orbs and stuff (provided they don't react in time) :P

Everyone will be able to be one-shotted in inferno. Seriously its entirely possible versus the right monster pack.

Imagine running into a Nightmarish Molten Teleporting Frenzied pack (possible inferno rare), 4 elites teleport onto you, fear you and then rape you with molten and IAS buff.

For the record the devs have said off hand comments about how they die around 10 times an hour in inferno

It has an Australian MA15+ Classification in the description. Id say is an AU copy. I would be annoyed if it wasn't though.
