The safest will be a Barb packing alot of defense abilities and stuns or a monk packing alot of heals and dodge/blind. For stats focus on vitality first then str for barb, dex for monk

I figured that the Demon Hunter or Wizard was the safest, having escape ability's and being ranged.

Demon Hunter takes 30% more damage than Barb or Monk, they cannot possibly be safer, especially considering that on occasion you will be 1-shot as a DH

Whatever works for you, at this point.

Your saving grace will be good equipment, either way.

I'd say that DH is probably not the way to go. I'd go monk.

Monk for sure...They are easily the most survivable class...Also due to passives you can build for damage and still end up tanky as hell.

DH's don't take 30% more damage than Barbs/Monks, Barbs/Monks take 30% less damage than DHs. Its different.

Witch Doctor has a passive that is a free death every 90 seconds. Definitely a big plus for HC.

Say what you like about Stephenie Meyer and the Twilight series but she will forever be remembered in literary history for the invention of Vampires.
