I think the Assassin had too much potential to not get re invited back... I like the idea of a ranger, utilizing traps, bows and hopefully some martial arts combo's.
I definitely think the druid is out, but I also think the druid is basically fused with the necro to become the witch doctor.
-Witch Doctor (Necro/Druid combo)
-Ranger (Amazon/Assassin combo)
I'm most interested in the elementalist and potential rogue/range, the Paladin will have to have something seriously awesome about it to make me interested.

Clearly not, or else you wouldn't have bothered to create an account and watch out for all the latest information on one of their up coming titles.
For something we have literally heard nothing about what did you seriously expect? it to come out by Christmas? O.o
I am just so happy it has been announced now we can start getting fed information and look forward to new big announcements (new classes/alpha/beta etc.) I couldn't actually care how long it took... Blizz have yet to disappoint on a game.

Well we know what 2 are and that there will be 5. A likely place to look to start guessing would be Diablo 2 Characters.
-Barbarian is obviously in and looks pretty copy/paste with a few new toys.
-Necromancer, always a little out of place, but looking at the new witch doctor, has a lot of similar traits (summoner/curses) and spells (confusion/raise dead/corpse explosion)
This leaves the others. Druid, Sorceress, Assassin, Paladin and Amazon
Out of all the remaining ones I believe that the Sorceress is the next mos likely to be brought in, in some form of elementalist. Everything seems rather Shamanistic so I wouldn't be supprised if they were literally brought in the form of a shaman.
My next guess would be an Amazon, seeing as a ranged attacker (bow/Javalins) is usually one of the most popular ones, it suits the current theme/feel. There is a possibility it might be combined with the Assassin, which is just a random idea. I believe it beacuse the amazon was always rather plain (spam multishot/straffe/guided arrow/lightning java depending on build) and the assassin was quite interesting but not as desired/powerful. I could logically see Martial Arts and Traps mixing with Bows and Javelins... Be interesting to get charges off shots and then release them with say a melee attack for a powerful effect.
That just leaves Druid and Paladin, and possibly Assassin. I honestly thought the druid was pretty bad/boring and never got far with one (made one were wolf with elite rib cracker once, was average) and Paladin was also lacking, it was pretty much go hammer or go home. I actually think the way the witch doctor works, it is like Druid combined with Necro, making it likely the last one will be a Paladin, but hopefully a more righteous arse kicking one than the one from Diablo 2.
What does everyone else think? Any ideas?

Well... it's a Blizz game, of course it's cartooney >.>... However there was some nice gore/blood effects, personally I would like it to go darker, and look a little more Gothic. But then as a business, that would scare away some customers and make parent's less willing to buy it for their kids/let their kids play it... So it makes sense to cartoon it up and make it a little friendlier.
I agree here, I really hope the market doesn't get thrashed with retards who hack/exploit the game. It makes it fun for them, but in the end they kill it and make it boring faster than if it went at a normal rate/difficulty. Also I would like to see measures to prevent bots that spam advertisements for buying stuff with RL money.D2 was plagued by a totally hacked economy because it was on BNET. Everyone had the best gear because of hacks, bots, and dupes. That was fine before World of Warcraft but if given a choice between WoW's clean economy and a hacked D3 BNET economy, there's no doubt I'm choosing WoW. What will you do differently to ensure that the D3 economy is not wrecked? I will NOT buy this game if you cannot guarantee a clean economy.
Questions I want to know are.
1) Will there be the classic Normal/Nightmare/Hell Difficulties
2) Will Hardcore mode return?
3) Will there be the option to retrain "talents"/spells?
4) Will there be any healerish classes/builds.... the beauty of being able to engage in a long epic battle means that either the enemy has a billion life and hits for 1.... or you have the ability to regen life. Previously it was all about mashing the Health Potion button, but how will this be balanced now?
5) I hear that there is less spam clicking but the same destruction from D2, does this mean spells/abilities will cost more, have bigger cooldowns but do more damage/hit more targets?
6) One of my favourite things from Diablo 2 which didn't get any advancing beyond the expansion was being able to craft item with desirable stats + random modifiers in the horodric cube (orange items). I felt this could have been furthered better, will there be something similar in D3?
7) About loot in general, I am hoping there is a lot more emphasis on random modifiers on stat drops, Rares/crafted items (chance for 3-8 random stats on an item) were imo what made Diablo more interesting compared to say WoW where everything is predefined. Is this the case? Or will you be adopting WoW's loot system into here?

If you use firefox, particularly with noscript it acts like you don't have the plug in...Quote from "italofoca" »Can someone PLEASE post a link to a scripted version of this interview ???
I really can`t install the plug in =(
I just coppied it into IE and it worked fine.
If you ARE trying it in IE then I have no idea sorry.
On topic, lots of interesting info coming out of their europe trip. I love it.
Aug 29, 2008Well the runes had already been figured out... there was the rune from frostmourne (warcraft), the hel rune (diablo), something from starcraft... the symbol that was on the cover of Pax Eternia (and OOOLLLLD blizzard game) and something from the lost vikings... can't remember.Posted in: News
But basically it was the core 5 gameing franchizes they had worked on.
Aug 24, 2008My idea/suggestion is to do with trading. Personally the idea isn't very original as it basically involves taking the item link system directly from wow.Posted in: News
I still play Diablo 2 and the one thing that continually frustrates me is that you are basically expected to know the entire item database off by heart as you cannot link items, or inspect people to see what they are wearing, in other words you can only show other people either your gear or what you have to trade by opening trade with someone. The ability to link items in chat, or at least directly to a person through whispers would greatly help. Particularly with the nature of Diablo's items usually having multiple random modifiers that means one Buriza is not as good as another.
So my suggestion is to allow the use of item links, whether through any conversation or through whispers, or any other method.
Aug 24, 2008Oh sweet I like the idea that there are some towns that will get invaded by demons... It would be sweet to defend a siege with some mates and NPC's.Posted in: News
Checkpoints is interesting but needs more clarification. I like how they are changing things up, and not just making Diablo 2.5.
Also at the very end "lots of people are asking 'how will you bring back diablo'?... well we killed him." I wonder if that means either A) there won't be a Diablo or he will be some form of undead reincarnation.

That dude never says anything that is unbiased or constructive and often insults people... your better off doing what I did and ignoring him imo.
I'm pretty certain this whole "new art director" is nothing and has been blown out of proportion.
Aug 7, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "Atrumentis" »Are you sure the art direction is a new job? I swear they have all been there for ages.
Yeah... thats what I was thinking, and from reading the job description... it doesn't sound like someone that makes all the decisions for the games art direction, so much as manages the team, enforcing someone else's "direction"
Quote from "Atrumentis" »Yeah, go to their profile and click 'Add user to your ignore list'.
Cheers, I tried just clicking once and there was "add to buddy"... kind of the opposite of my intention >.<
Aug 7, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "shelledfade" »Wow, thats a new job opening. May very well be you are on to something here. However I hope he was fired instead of quitting for the dumbass job hes done so far.
Fuck yes, in your face!
You are as ignorant as you are a selfish arsehole.... one day you'll grow up I guess. Is there a way to ignore users on this forum? like their posts just don't show up to you?
However if they do completely change the direction of the art, the game will probably be delayed by another year.... Not to mention theres the possibility it gets worse.
