Hmmmm....wizard best class for early inferno?

Just a weird thought, considering that best gear in the game can drop from barrels is wizard or somethign simular best char for inferno, a class built either to take a ton of hits or can teleport, and just teleport fireball all barrels, grab any loot, teleport and so on, not killing anything just focusing on getting early gear that might help you survive killing the mobs.

I had a rare drop from a barrel during the beta

Barrels can drop great stuff, but the odds are horrible. You'll get good items way faster by killing things.
And with that...pow! I'm gone!

heh well if your doing a barrel run, you would invest heavily into resistances and armor so the damage wouldn't do much if lucky.

this teleport has a cooldown in this game can't just spam it you tele to the wrong spot you're surrounded

They're probably one of the best for Inferno, considering how enemies basically do 10x more damage than in Hell but item affixes are only ~50% more powerful going from level 60 to 63.

If you're a barbarian, you're gonna have a bad time.
