Im new to the forums, so first I'd like to say hi to everyone, and i apologize if this has been talked about already.
first of all, im a big diablo fan, though wouldnt consider myself a "gamer"... i just really like the game
ive played and beat all of the diablos except for helfire, and loved every min of it...
im very excited for the new one to come out, and ive been trying to find out some info on the new character classes, does anyone know of them aside from the WD and barb?
and have some ideas that i think would be cool for character classes even if they wont be in the new game...
first off i was reading the samuri thread and was noticing a lot about how people dont want one becuase it doesnt exactly fit into the lore of the game... well my views on that is if they can make a very good samuri charater that is intersting and fun to play, i dont give a hoot if it doesnt fit perfectly into the lore of diablo.... the good thing about video games is that you can pretty much create anything and come up with a way to justify it... the samuri class could be from a newly discovered island, that has lived in isolation for a long time, much like japan really was in real life
andther idea i had for a new class is kind of a cross between a amazon and warrior, the Legionaire. He could be a greek/roman type character that could wield swords and shields along with spears and pikes, much like the roman legionaires and the greek phallanx.... also the tower shield and gladius short swords lend fuel to the fire that it would work as well... plus the dusk shroud (i beleive) looks like a greek helmet... also the style of armor and helms and such (with the big red hair) would make for a very interesting looking character
another very interesting character class could be a fallen angel that is trying to get back into heaven by redeeming himself in battle against evil... he could look like a scaled down tyreal with his wings torn off, and less power than a full angel, he ccould be a paladin type charcter, strong against the undead and weilding heavenly powers, being a well rounded charter type
another interesting idea i had was a rouge demon class... a demon switches sides and fights for good... it could be a chacter that has a lot of potential, by upgradng skill sets, you could transform the demon into a small lighting quick demon or into a hulking beast that is slow but powerful kind of similar to the druid... you wouldnt even need to use shields and weapons, but could upgrade claws and skin armor and such just to throw in a different style of gameplay
and ive got another idea that could be cool, a Saint class... now becuase someone cant become a saint until after they have died, this would be kind of a good zombie, somene that was ressurected to fight... they can be a staff wielding class or even a book wielding class that reads spells from "scriptures" to cast spells
well what does everyone think? like i said, theyre just ideas that i thought of that would be kinda cool, im not speculating that they are in the game, or that they should be... but ideas, and something to discuss...
yeah blizzcon then WWI09 and Blizzcon 09 then dec 09 is release date most likely anyway samurai clas is possible due to new island formed on map called xiansai which origonates from oriental people so its possible....ninja maybe who knows
