yes I would also say that the barbarian is the first choice if it comes to the SP. i started with the demon hunter which is a real bad ass on long range attacks but sucks in close quarter combat whats not easily to avoid if you play alone. even with all the traps, resulting that i have to run back several times till i have just 2-6(depending on their size) enemys behind me to knock them out 1 after 1. the demon hunter is now in a support role on nightmare co-op games and the barbarian is slaying all the bad demons in sp alone. didn't tested the other chars right now but the monk might be a good alternative to the demon hunter and barbarian. fact is: i want my amazon from diablo2 back
I like my monk. i've been playing all the way to lvl 52 as of now, in hell mode and haven't died once. All my health potions are sold to vendors as I looted them. My monk healed up each time it uses special attacks and with life regen aura + companion's life regen aura = Cheathappens' trainer god mode!
