I'm missing a dark class bad

    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.



    Whatever you classify as a "good guy". The necro has more of a short-term view while the Paladin has more of a long-term view, he understands that inevitably, especially with the worldstone being destroyed now, that either Heaven or Hell will reign supreme over everything. Aligning with the side of Order which at least offers respect and consideration to all other things.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Having a class as dark as some of you are asking doesn't belong in this series. The whole point is to have characters that convincingly are strong enough to over come evil and temptation. Look at the D1 characters, they were all powerful heroes who eventually became corrupted. It makes no sense to have a character that is already halfway there.

    The New Blizzard have made their stance clear: they have a new vision for Diablo, and its a much less dark and gritty one. Oh well. It will probably still be a fun game.

    I thought that the witch doctor allready filled that gap. Voodoo zombies and insect swarms are not what I would call conventional :evil:

    Blizzard Quote Please...

    They have said that they want to capture the D1 scary feel, but just not in every area. Why would they show us the darkest (and therefore coolest) areas before release?

    ha ha, i couldn't have said it better emilemil1. I think we still have yet to see some of the darkest area's in the D3 universe.

    And hopefully we have yet to see the darkest character as well, but if we don't than I'm not going to cry.

    And I think this is Blizzard's philosophy too, but the Witch Doctor just isn't my taste. He's too goofy for me to be able to take him serious.

    The WD is not scary/dark, he is creepy/weird :P Big difference.
  • #28
    I think he's awesome, just my type of class ^_^

    I would REALLY like to see some hot, sexy, SMOKIN' bad girl, who is hunting down monsters to piss off her parents.

    MMMM. HURR HURR HURR

    Well, as long as he doesn't face the screen and start "booga booga booga" on me I'll be satisfied. That and the possibility to NOT equip any of the ridiculous looking masks and still be effective gameplay-wise.

    I am missing it too.

    This WD gathers all the features i found useless in the D2 necro, ie skills as Horrify (not even cool @ PvM... who wants the mobs to run away -.-), ugly looking little summons, Mass Confusion (ok lets sit down and wait for ages till this skelettons kill each other... i'll clean my mask's feathers meanwhile....)

    But people exclude the nec because the WD took his place, in fact he didn't (apart for the zombie wall that looks sexy). He is more a Dudu then a Nec imo. I know there is only one class to be released yet and there are plenty of options that are more likely then D2 nec....

    So why not give this broadly wanted Dark style to an already existing char. Instead of making the sorcerer's classic skill tree:
    -fire
    -ice
    -ele
    make it:
    -elements (ie water and/or fire a/o ele)
    -passives (tele, ST....)
    -dark arts (namely something looking like necs, bones skill tree)

    The probem with this is that it would create a Dark-Mage class combining the best features from both Sorcerer and Nec >>> Making it the most awsome char in D3, who will want to play the poor WD afterwards ?

    And i heard about the Storm/Arcane/Conjure skill tree, but it really looks too much like D2 as described :(

    We want a :necro: -like char !!
    PvP = ultimate D2 fun :thumbsup:

    Well if I'm gonna add my two cents here it goes.

    I think that we still need a rogue type character but why not have one of the corrupted rogues from D2. It would make sense lore wise, they are no longer corrupted but part of them is still demon, they are pissed off about it and want to kick some demon ass. It would not be a necro clone and there could be some cool demonic rage skills or something like that.

    I vote for formally-corrupted rogue as the 5th class.

    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)


    if you ever watched FMA, you would know alchemists are not like that at all. only the humunculi and some of the alchemists who researched the philosophers stone were even close to "void of dark with conjuring up the dead". also, alchemist primarily transmute materials, much less conjure dead people and "magic" spells. i mean, wtf? alchemists dont use magic. dont quote a series you obviously have no understanding of.

    but besides that, i do feel that the WD lacks a certain, darkness. i dont care what bashiok says, "plague of toads" is something from harry potter.

    I like the WD, he's unique lol. I will miss the necromancer, but "variety is the spice of life" - it's interesting to see all the new ideas in the mix.

    However, to be honest I’m not a fan of the barbarian at all - so I’m annoyed that he gets to come back when the dark characters like necro and assassin (my fav) do not.

    I think no one like the WD for two reasons 1. He is old-ish 2. He wears purple. Despite this, I think it's a pretty cool character, but I’ll probably play the female.

    I’m sure something darker will turn up in an expansion. Fingers crossed.

    Sorry.

    May I ask how the Necromancer, who, aside from the Druid, is the one class fighting for Humanity and Sanctuary, is the evil class? The Paladin, on the other side, could be viewed as the truely evil one, fighting for Heaven, who wants extreme order. In the world of Diablo, niether Heaven or Hell is good, and the Necromancer understands that. I could see the Necromancer killing an angel just as fast as a demon, whereas the Paladin, blinded by faith, would be murdered by an angel while he fights a demon.

    Dark class? The Paladin is the dark class from what I can see.

    when we, or at least i, talk about a "dark" class, im saying their METHODS are dark, not their priorities or allegiances or whatever. so a paladin fighting for the wrong reasons is still a "holy" class, and a necromancer fighting for sanctuary is a "dark' class.

    How is using a dead skeleton that has no use for your own gain dark? Its not alive, it's just bone. If anything, it's neutral rather then good or bad...

    As for the Paladin, he's more of a lawful evil person, rather then a lawful good person. At least, from everything I've ever seen.

    Basically:
    Paladin: Lawful Neutral/Lawful Evil
    Necromancer Chaotic Good/Neutral Good

    I never liked that shiny bastard.

    When I reffer to dark, I always think in colours and appearence - even if the necro summoned flowers from the ground :P

    In that case, the Assassin, who is Neutral Neutral would be "dark" in your eyes... Basically just get some black clothes and you'll be happy. :P

    The Necro, I believe, was neither good nor bad, light nor dark. He fought against the three to restore balance to the world. If anything, saying he's a dark(er/ish) class is just perpetuating the stereotype that already exists in Sanctuary. (In regards to the Necro.)
