Dancers, They Are Two Shoes Away From Crazy

I've been playing the Diablo III beta for the past few days. If you had a chance the hop in the open beta last weekend, you'll probably be as excited about the full game as I am. The beta test had some hiccups shortly after launch, but they were resolved rather quickly. I've already played through the content twice, once as the barbarian and once as the demon hunter. While the latter is ranged and, so far, my favorite, he seems a bit underpowered while the barbarian is way more destructive. Next up are the monk, witch doctor and wizard. Got to catch them all!
