Q u o t e: Depending on infinity for a first char??? What are you people farming to be able to afford such high end items and get runes like that?
Only viable thing I see making is a Blizz sorc as she can easily kill Andy, Meph, and Pindle.
I rolled a fire sorc at the start of the season...ran andy, meph, countess, summoner, shenk, eldritch, and nihlathak with decent speed given the mostly low-end gear I stuck with.
This season I might do that again, or start with a hammerdin instead so I can start ubering with friends sooner...but key runs and boss runs for gear will be considerably slower. Plus, the new patch could majorly nerf hammerdins (and deservedly so).
So, ultimately, I guess my first choice depends on what the patch does.
