    how are you going to play your first toon?

    i must admit, i never had a 99 in diablo II.

    I had literally 16 toons from 75-92...

    I think I'm actually going to play my first toon dedicately to 99. I usually have a hard time on deciding a main class to play in online RPGs, but in D3's case, I think i'll make an exception. make a decision, stick to it, get to 99.

    Anyone else have any thoughts? Try out a whole bunch of toons equally? Make a couple "mains"? Go hardcore with one class at first before you try anything else? etc etc.

    I think I'll just do what I think is most fun on the spot. Then change my mind whenever I feel like it. :thumbsup:

    Good luck getting all your skills just right first time in a new game...we already know they've changed the barb skills, there is a good chance that a whole bunch of skills will be different or new. I think Es has got it right, just have fun!

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    Well, I am allways curious about all classes and builds. With RPG games, I usually start ~5 characters play them on and off. Then I get the feel of the game, read about other people characters on the forums, and decide for a new build or two. In this phase some character of mine is so fun to play that I try to push him/her thorugh til the end of the game. I doubt it will be different with D3. I don't know how fun will be experience runs or MF runs, so I can't say yet what I will do in D3...

    I don't know if I could bare playing more than one character at the same time when I start the game. I'm usually drawn in by the story, so I'll probably finish the questline with one character before trying others.

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    Character building is one of the thing I like at most in RPG games. I like to see what skills different characters can use, how they do in comparison to each other and I like to see them getting stronger. Of course that in the beginning, they level faster so yes, I do like to have them more.

    I am experienced in D2 now, and unfortunatly, well-built characters often start to use their primary skills around lvl24 or 30 and do use the same strategy (saving skillpoints and use 1point wonders) so this stage of game is no longer so interesting, but when I started with D2, I think I didn't have a patriarch for a year or so, while having at least 10 active characters in different parts of the game...

    Complete SP on each class (100% on my own), then read forums compare builds and then hit b-net with the class I enjoyed most. How I've done Diablo I and II, why break a good habbit? :)

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    I'm probably going to go with an archer-like class (assassin) my first time around. I never did this in D2 because I hate playing as females, but I guess now I will get the chance.

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    of course i'll have fun for the first few hours of tooning around. Then it's serious business time!

    but, apparently there is respeccing (although possibly limited)? If this is true, which i hope it's not, I shouldn't have a problem.

    If blizzard gets their senses straight and doesn't feature respeccing, then I still don't think it'll be too hard to guess a decent spec at first after some reading over the trees (assuming there are trees).

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    Firstly: You have 99 posts, :thumbup:

    Secondly, I am not entirely sure if we will have characters level the same way we do now. Maybe it stops before level 99, maybe after

    Do you all think it will be the same? Level 99=max?

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    I will pick a character and play it through no matter how bad I screw it up. The most fun I had in D2 was when I was new to the game and didnt know what was going on and what was good or bad. Ignorance was bliss. Thats why I wonrt read the build articles, or the strategy guides my first few times through the game.

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    I'll start by going through the game slowly and thoroughly, hopefully with a friend or two, focusing on one character. IMO the most exciting part initially is trying to become at least somewhat immersed in the lore and the quests, visiting as many areas as possible and getting to know the game world. After that, trying out different classes and skill combinations, and finally searching for items, optimizing the characters you've made.

    omg thank you. if toon becomes a new word in diablo im gonna go crazy. I dont know why but that word sounds so stupid to me and i hate it. toon=wow char=diablo

    On topic. Ill probably make sorc/summoner. Whatever those classes maybe then me and a friend will walk thro the game.

    Re: how are you going to play your first toon?

    Toon is completely acceptible within this community. What is wrong with it?

    The term "toon" is better for a game with 2d sprites than to a game of 3d models if you ask me.

    What the Hell is toon? Something of WOW??

    If you are asking about character , Palladin or Warrior.
    I hope this time they put the warrior again like in 1.
