I'm missing a dark class bad

  • #1
    Ok tell me if i'm not the only one. Does any feel that were missing something in d3? i personally feel the witch doctor just isn't cutting the whole dark caster feel.

    I feel hes just a crazy crackout doctor with pets and bugs. I really feel that we are missing a dark class.

    In d2 the necromancer did it for us. Now hes gone its like kinda depressing in a sick way. lol guys tell me you guys arn't feeling the same thing plz let me hear your thoughts on this. help me feel better come on guys help me out here. :(

    i will be very happy if the final class was some kind of blackgaurd (dark cleric) or something anything whatever. If blizzard decides on doing that for the next expansion thats ok, but i really don't want to wait that long. very worried :o

    There was no dark class in Diablo 1, or its "unofficial" expansion...so so far 2>1 in games. With that said, I feel we do need a dark or neutral character. (No not some crossbow shooting scientist HAHA)

    I'm totally with you on that one. I thought the assassin was kinda dark too but i mean it has to go way beyond that. I always thought of some demon worshiper gone rogue would be pretty bad ass or the dread knight, which was a actually a concept developed by fan art.

    True, forgot about assassin. So 2-2 fair enough. I too have thought of some demon that is out for his own purposes, and reign over hell. Also thought of an Alchemist who can go either way, he could easily fill that void of dark with conjuring up the dead and some alchemist magic spells. (Watch Full Metal Alchemist, that's kinda what im picturing an alchemist in d3 should be like)

    Meh, I don't feel it.
    Diablo has never been about playing a dark and evil character. It's about hackin' and slashin' the evil and dark ones.

    The Witch Doctor is indeed the darker class, but he uses horror things instead of dead things (his creations got flesh). And Necromancer is a much more evil name than Witch Doctor.

    My bet is that the last class will be a bit like the Assassin or Wizard in his/her attitude, but not Necromancer dark looking.

    The Necromancer was on the limit, I wouldn't go darker than him. It starts to not make sense when a too evil character starts fighting demons (visual wise, not lore wise).

    Nope, the Witchdoctor is fine. In fact I like him better.

    You hit the spot with that one. I agree with the Necromancer being on the limit, but I gotta say that it would be kinda strange even in the lore for an evil character to fight a faction with the same intents as him.

    The Witch Doctor is just as dark as the Necromancer.

    Both convene with spirits, ghosts, zombies. Both can afflict their enemies with curses.

    Plus the Witch Doctor ingests drugs and other materials to make him more powerful. He is as much of an anti-hero as the Necromancer.

    Maybe a lot of people are put off by the Witch Doctor's appearance.

    My friends who ALWAYS played the Paladin in Diablo 2 thought the pally looked really cool when you selected him on the first screen and he salutes you by pulling out his sword and getting down on one knee.

    On the other hand, when talking about which character he might play in D3, he still yearns for a Paladin, but since his return is unlikely, he reluctantly settles for the monk.

    He says that there is no way in hell that he will play a character as ugly as the Witch Doctor. Heck it's already a blasphemy for him to play a bald and unshaven monk.

    Edit: Concerning the D2 Necromancer, I thought he was the most detailed and original dark class out there.

    He was not evil at all, instead he yearns for balance between Heaven and Hell. He controls the thin line between life and death, and since he acts to maintain the balance, he is immune to the corruption of the Prime Evils, something that even the Paladins of Zakarum fell prey to.

    I think it's awesome that a Necromancer of all things is immune to all those evil temptations, and it makes sense story-wise.

    I think the Witch Doctor looks awesome. But I can agree that they can shave the monk a bit more though..

    The Necromancers are actually keepers of balance, they are not evil, they are neutral.

    I wasn't talking about the Necromancer.

    Yep give us some bad guy!
    Maybe a dark wanderer would be nice, kinda melee/ranger class hiding under his cool hooded cloak, just like Aragorn but in a bad guy version :)
    Plus i wan my necromancer back asap!

    I'm missing a dark character as well.

    I think it's cool that the necromancer was a dark character, but actually a keeper of the balance as holyblight and emilemil1 said.

    I would like a charater that is darker in appearance, yet good at heart.

    I don't think the witch doctor is a good substitute because he's not necessarily dark, he's just weird.

    The "Dark" class could be the Rogue / whatever you want to call him...

    I've noticed something, there's no Class in D3 that actually has a Sword as a main weapon. Yeah a Barbarian can use a few different types, but still. The Paladin could focus on a sword, it was his starting weapon and all. There should be a Dark class with a sword, that would be kind of neat.

    It is hard to know how "dark" the witch doctor is. There is very little lore released for this character which is weird since they announced him so long ago.

    As far as looks go, I feel the necro and WD ate both older skinny guys which resemble typify their fighting style of summons. The only thing that made the necro "darker" was his black armor. He had skeletons but the WD has zombies.

    Once we get some more info on the WD I can decide whether or not we need a "darker" character.

    i just hope once we get some lore on WD hopefully i'll feel better. I still want some really good dark shady character the whole doctor and monk thing just isn't cutting it for me :(

    I feel like theres just no knight anymore with the monk now.
    I feel the same feeling with the Witch Doctor. In a darker way
    barb and wizard so far are perfect.
    ugh i just feel like something is incomplete.

    Agree... it would lean to the dark side.. and could use daggers and 1h swords. But it feels like we are missing the ranged class w/o the Amazon. Maybe a ranger would be in play. Could have a ranged or DW melee talent trees.

    I don't think we really need an evil character per s?, but I would definately love to have a less conventional good guy like the Necromancer was. When you read their back story, the Necromancers seem to be actually more of a good guy than the Paladins even, but they're misunderstood because of what their magic looks like to the normal folk. That's pretty cool, and that's what I'd like to see again in D3.
