'lo all you awesome DiabloFans who enjoy these podcasts, here's the ninth episode of our DiabloCast. This week was all about the upcoming Beta and the Followers System. Keep in mind, all of our speculation on the Followers System was done solely through the leaked video and before the actual announcement. We'll be covering the Followers System again in next weeks episode. If you missed the eighth episode, you can check it out here. Otherwise, the eighth episode covered the following topics:
like said here:
YOU CANNOT control followers, and when they die, they just passout for a certain period of time then revive by their own (dont dont have to go to town to revive them), they never really die...and also they level up even if you dont take them with you toi battle.
so you dont have to make them XP in lower level areas.
also that lvl 25 item is just a unique item you can equip ur followers, maybe some kinda special follower item or something.
you were right man, that guy is a dick saying that you can control followers.
How's it going? If you would take a moment to really listen to the podcast, you would realize that this was recorded prior to any information being known about the followers. The only thing we had to work with was the leaked video. In fact I do believe I said at least 2-3 times that this was the case and much of our discussion was speculation!
Thanks much for listening, hope I have cleared up your confusion about our discussion.
It looks like you guys were a little too "on the ball" since Blizzard released more details about the followers just a few hours later. I look forward to listening to the next one to hear your guys' updated comments.
Yeah, we pretty much have to record these on Thursdays. Since all of the info was out on Friday, there was really nothing we could do. But we did not want to ignore the video released early completely. We will definitely being discussing the idea in more detail next week.

I wonder if Blizzard is going to make these followers into a HUGE money sink. It would be interesting to see them have a timed price. Maybe you pay X amount of gold for 24 hour use or maybe 2 hours of gameplay. Just a thought, but this could make it on one hand a GREAT help to the player if they are really powerful yet at the same time you are paying for it out of your own pocket and not until they die but on a timed limit. Just some random thoughts
