The only class I have yet to try is the barbarian. I imagine the barb will hit hard, but I doubt he'll be able to kill multiple targets as fast. Time will tell. Of course, this is only the beta and only to level 13... so it's impossible to draw hard conclusions.
Go wizzards!

I started playing through the beta with the wizard last night and I thought it was taking longer than some other classes to kill monsters. She uses arcane power so fast that you can't spam it and her normal attacks are pretty weak. I played to level 7 and a lot of the monsters would take like 5 hits to die at that point. My barb was 2 hitting mostly everything throughout the beta I think.

Wow thats crazy. I was hoping it actually was open beta as I'd be able to play with my friend, There is also another post at incgamers about release times and it is suggesting the game will be release midnight PST... That is 3AM my time. Sigh. There is going to be a blue post with more information later this week about release times. If this is the case looks like I'll be waiting till 9 or 10 am on the 15th to get the game.

If they do release at 3AM Eastern, I'll be good to go. I'm usually up until 3-4AM anyways.

I have the day off too but I have to wait for my collector's edition to be delivered redface.gif.

I've got the upgrade bug but I'm holding off on cpu/motherboard, the only real upgrade left for me, until IB/Haswell. Now I'm looking at upgrading my mousepad/mouse lol. Any recommendations? I'm currently using some wireless logitech mouse that I've had for years and starting to die on me.

You're lucky that you can get it right at midnight your time. I might just as well get to bed early the night before and go to Gamestop when they open on the 15th.

I've used probably a dozen different Logitech gaming mice and Razer mice over the years. I currently use a Logitech G700 and a Razer Destructor mousepad. I love the combo. I usually get a new mouse like once every year or two but I don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Do you claw grip or palm grip? Do you want wired or wireless?

I'm eyeballin' a SteelSeries 9hd mouse pad at the moment. I claw grip most of the time and always prefer wired over wireless.

Well Razer mice (in my opinion) tend to be more friendly towards claw grippers. That said, a DeathAdder might be the way to go.

I don't know, it's hard to say without me playing barb, but I can say it at least felt like I was killing more monsters/minute with the wizzard than any other class. Try to keep in mind that I'm comparing only classes that I maxed out to lvl 13. Give the wizzard until level 13 and see if your opinion changes. I preferred to play with ray of frost (numb rune), shock pulse (explosive bolts rune), wave of force, and diamond skin. Ray of frost is great for single target dps, shock pulse to spam groups at medium range, and wave of force for huge groups when surrounded.

I think it's also obvious that it depends greatly on gear. Your experience and my experience may be very different depending on gear. I ended up getting a weapon with 17ish dps by the end of my first play through (approx level 7).
