I would hope that the writers behind the expansion are smart enough to include trang'oul in it. This is the perfect time. He is the keeper of balance and protector of Sanctuary. Think about it...
- Heavens are good
- Hell is devastated
- Nephalem are more powerful than the both of them
- A rouge angel just unleashed it's wrath on Sanctuary - a place which he should not even know about
- Now both angels and demons have discovered Sanctuary and have intervened
If now is not the time for good 'ol Trang to rear his ugly head and get involved, then I am not sure he ever will. That would lead me to believe that he doesn't even exist.
Not to mention it would be a great opportunity for the writers to re-intrigue the audience with a topic that not that many fans really know about. There is little known about Trang so I would think that the writers/devs would jump at the chance to add him into the story line.
Of course, with the inclusion of Trang must come the Necromancer.....
I think in the next expansion it might be cool to introduce dracula like character. As we all know in ros lots of nephalems souls were drained by an arch angel and a soulless human such as dracula sounds pretty cool.
so unlike any other charaters that rely on int str or dex these new characters only rely on vit for everything. All the skills either cost or regen health
What if we get three new classes? From what we've seen, the necromancers wear armor and carry shields, so they might be the new strength class, the Amazon (female only) maybe the new dexterity class, and the Druid (male only) be the new int class. Add in the sapphire gems and skulls from D2 for new gems. Also a horadrian follower that is a buff/healer would be a nice addition to the follower pool, imo
Personally I think there are lack of life themed abilities, or nature if you want to call it that. As all classes have elemental based abilities and spells in their arsenal and expecially wizard, monks and barbs. Holy spells are iconic of Crusader and Monks and Shadow to Demon hunter as is poison and undeath to WD.
What I'm saying is I don't feel the life themed abilities and concepts are that constructed in the game yet and such as something that grows from the earth, blooms, reincarnates, tree magic with spiked thorns surrounding and grasping victims and sharp leaves soaring in the wind that cut everything to pieces, a growing flowers that blooms after a small amount of time and explodes in fire etc. Summoning rain that heals allies and hurricanes with lightning strikes that knockbacks and slows enemies. Gigantic Behemoths, Eagles, Bears, Ogres, Cyclopses as companions, summoning powerful spirits that grant unique effects to allies for a duration of time such as movement speed with knockbacks, or healing and reviving dead allies and the player if they die or absorbing magic/physical damage etc.
Shapeshifting into a treant that roots you down temporary, increasing Armor and Damage, or a Gigantic beast the does melee damage, a Stormbird creature immune to cc that flies over npcs raining Lightning.
