The wall of bones reference in combination with the ladders to climb them sounds like a necromancer and ladder combination.. but then again we will get announcement which will tell us its released sooooooon (As in 2015 or so)
Hopefully this time they don't make the mistake of ladder-exclusive items.
This is an endless debate, Shaggy.
If there are ladder-exclusive items, then people who don't want to play ladder feel forced to play ladder because otherwise they won't get the best possible gear.
If there are no ladder-exclusive items, then what is the point to play ladder in an environment where an economy reset means nothing because there is no economy to reset? You create a character, some time later it gets wiped/non-ladder'd while being inferior to non-ladder characters. In Diablo 2 the whole point of playing ladder was to create a character superior to non-ladders in a given time frame while taking advantage of a fresh economy.
I hope that Blizzard will give us the details really soon. Main things:
1) Will there be ladder-exclusive items
2) What happens to ladder characters when ladder expires
3) What is the duration of the ladder season
I like the idea that, despite my busy job, i still have chance to make a character as powerful as the people who play this game more than a few hours each day. I realize that this is impossible due to Paragon, but can accept that as i can at least obtain the same gear (although i need to be more Lucky). However, if certain gear is impossible to attain without the ladder, i would be a bit saddened by it.
I assume playing ladder en be on the top of it = having no work/family to take care for.
