1) An expansion build around us, the Nephalem (based on the reference Tyrael makes in the cinematic after killing Malthael). I'd be extremely dissapointed if Hell/Heaven teamed up in order to beat the Nephalem, with us beating them in the end. Though, I don't think a universe without the Burning Hells and High Heavens can exist, because Anu was/is the beginning of all beings and the Burning hells/High Heavens are essentially Anu.
2) I don't think we'll ever destroy one faction though. I mean, what is the Burning Hells without the High Heavens and vice versa? As I said in 1) I don't the universe can't exist without either, because they can't be without eachother.
Maybe we'll get to pay Inarius a visit, and find out a way to return Sanctuary to its former glory and send it to another realm with Trag'ouls (I think he mentiones that there are more like him, in different realms) help. Making Sanctuary invisible from both factions and independent once more.
Diablo 4 won't happen, this has been said before. Then again, they also said there wasnt going to be an expansion sooo....
That is unless, of course, both the Heavens and the Hells are destroyed. Tyrael turned Nephalem, why can't the rest of the angels? Just a super crazy theory, but what if the Heavens realize the imbalance of not having a Hells, and the angels choose the mortal life as both the Heavens and the Hells are destroyed?
I know this is unlikely but I hope the next expansion introduces 2 new classes that use entirely different gems (e.g. like sapphire or moonstone). I also hope that one of the new classes is a Druid or something that similarly has a heavy focus on nature (uncorrupted). Also they introduce possible 8 player game modes. I've thought about how they would do this without exasperating the techno rave show that we already have and came up with a possible solution. Why don't the make everyone's skill effects(except yours) transparent like they already do with pets and and turrets in multiplayer? These are just hopes that have probably 99% of not happening.
Would LOVE two more classes =D
Agreed on the Drood. Must have drood.
I'd actually be fine on the 8 player, but idk I think the bigger issue would be balancing imo, especially since I think the stacking of certain + damage items that benefit the entire group would kind of break it.
That never should happen in the current class system. Each class has to invest in vitality and main stat. If on any class vitality was the main stat then the whole gearing would be much easier for that single class, as one of the primary affixes would be freed for other options.
I mean yes true but also not really. Every other class' mainstat has defensive properties as well such as int giving resist and dex/str giving armor. It means that class will have less armor or resist than any of the other classes.
The point is not about balancing this thing but about fitting it at all into the game. We have limited itemization options. All classes need to choose from a preset set of affixes. A VIT class would have 1 less affix to worry about, so it would be much easier to itemize.
What do you mean 1 less affix to worry about? Do you mean they don't have to worry about Dex / agi / str? Because if that's the case, you're going to have to have Vitality add Health / Damage / and mitigation in the form of all resis / armor. If you don't, then this Vit class will STILL have to worry about stacking int / dex / str, or their mitigation will be unacceptably lower then the rest of the classes. In essence, having a Vit class doesn't solve anything, and instead makes more problems.
I'm not just coming in here to shoot down everyone, but seriously you guys need to get off the Vitality based class train. There's no reason to make something SO convoluted and complicated.
Because we have a flat 85% chance at smart loot, adding another class that uses STR / AGI / INT will in no way impact your drops, since 85% of your drops will still be for the class you're playing. Yes, the pool for the 15% chance a drop isn't smart loot just got bigger..... but so what?
Could that be the new expansion logo? This image was shared on the official diablo facebook page today and the game logo is way different than the one used in the previous facebook posts.
ooooo, good eye.
I'm tellin ya, skovos isles would make a fantastic environment, with an actual forest / light jungle / beach + ocean vibe, with of course old ruins spread about. Plus it could be the place that the Druids retreated too, because we all know Droods are da best and NEED to be in the next expansion!!1!
what about leah? is she really dead, or just waiting to be rescued..
In one of the dev interviews, they did say that Leah is dead. However, they also teased that people's souls might be salvagable somehow, so that could be part of the setup for the next expac or a story arc if they ever do D4.
Well there is that 'void' that all souls go to, and it's also where Lillith was banished to and later escaped from (if I've got my lore right).
