Both diablo games have included a "stealth" type of character, the rogue in Diablo, and the Assassin in D2. But I never really thought the rogue was.. rogue-y enough, and the assassin was never assassin-y enough. I always felt like they were missing something.
I was wondering, how do you think they will approach the stealth class in D3 ? What do you think they should include ? Should they use the previously established rogue or assassin, or go for something completely new ?
Personally, I'm all for the assassin. She was a great addition to the game, she provided a mix of damage, and versatility. I always remember my martial arts assassin as being one of my most fun to play characters ^_^.
Many people have been asking how these 2 characters are stealth based, and in truth, they aren't. Blizzard intended them to be stealthy, but failed. They are the closest thing to stealth characters that the Diablo games have. Stealth in diablo basically involved agility based characters, and characters that had to be more careful than the other classes in combat.
And also, yes, the rogue is more similar to the amazon than to the assassin, but as I said, the rogue filled the "stealth" role in diablo.

Mar 18, 2009Zhar posted a message on Who else thinks gold should be worth something in D3?Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from "angelmaz" »Not me. I enjoyed the fact that wealth was accumulated through skillful trading and not mindless grinding. If gold is worth anything, some assholes with 12 hours a day to play will automatically become uber (remind you of any games? cough Wo..)
I completely agree with that, the D2 economy was great.
It gave the players more control over the game, it let them decide prices for items, and introduced bartering and trading.
And yeah....people with no lives will become uber if the D3 economy is anything like WOW.
Not to say that didn't happen in D2, but anyone could randomly stumble upon rare items, or rare runes.
Mar 18, 2009I'm playing Gothic 3 right now. The game itself was full of bugs...but with patches it's actually an incredible game. I'd highly reccomend it to anyone who enjoys massive amounts of freedom, and great storyline. It's pretty much oblivion.... but better.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Also playing Eastern Sun diablo, that was a great mod ^_^.
Mar 18, 2009I'm also pretty worried that they're going to lean towards the warcraft style.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The thing that really got me going was the massive shoulder plates... Dunno why but it just screamed "warcraft" at me.
I really wish that Blizzard would take some artistic advice from Blizzard North, even if they are gone.
I'm still going to buy the game tho, no matter how much they butcher the graphics:P

Im pretty sure he only does that when people are real low on health.
Thanks, ruin my hilarious mental image.
But yeah, that does make alot more sense than him randomly eating people.
I'm glad to see that bosses have more ways to kill you, it will make the game a whole lot more interesting to play.
I know I'll be spending a lot of time dying over and over near him just to see all the ways he can hand your ass to you.
Jul 12, 2008With that seigebreaker assault beast ripping off heads ( Watch the gameplay video! ), D3 hardcore is going to be incredible.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I can already picture thousands of players screaming at their monitors after that thing finishes eating their face.
Jul 12, 2008Finally joined the forum !Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
I wanted to throw in my 2 cents.
I'm defineately on the fence when it comes to religion. I'm open to the concept of a higher power, but i don't beleive in organized religion.
Organized religion has done more bad than good in the world, while the idea of god has helped many people get through life, even if his existence is questionable.
About the whole "world created in 6 days" thing, that's bull in my opinoin.
As for God in the diablo universe, I doubt that he will be included. That would be a subject that Blizz would stay the hell away from. It would be quite interesting if he was put into the game however, I would really like to see how they would fit him into the game, as well as how they thought he looks. Knowing blizzard he would have some badass armor on..maybe a hammer the size of a small child.

May 23, 2009Posted in: NewsQuote from "Atrumentis" »Yes! Oh my god I love it! Bodies hanging from trees is just tops, I am so excited to see them.
I am also very glad that they have included Azmodan in some more lore too. That guy is so neglected.
Ah ! I loved the corpse in the trees !!!
Feels SO diablo, I really like that last screenshot, the fallen mesh in perfectly and the shading is pretty great.
Same about Azmodan, I'm really glad they're finally adding some lore for him.
Only time I ever recall hearing about him was back in the first Diablo, I came across some random book and it talked about the sin war.
For anyone who hasn't played Diablo, get it, there's a lot of interesting lore in that game.
May 22, 2009Posted in: NewsQuote from name="biff exploder" »i know what you mean, it wouldn't be the 1st time blizzard copy pasted some characters into some scenery (remember screenshots on the back of D1 cover? )
Haha, yep. I miss the days of D1 ^_^.
The one screennshot on the back of it was so ... shitty.
Had like the sorcerer and the warrior beating the shit out of some skellies with a fire wall.. looked pretty welfare.
Loved that game though ^^.
Can't beleive I actually remember that screenshot so well though, good ol' photographic memory doing its thing again..
May 22, 2009Hmm, just noticed that they seem kind of vibrant in the first two screenshots, hopefully it is just a graphics fault, since they meshed in perfectly in the graveyard screenshot.Posted in: News
The first two just seemed out of place, theres these dark corridoors and then... bam, bright fucking red. The graveyard screenshot looked incredible though :D.
This bother anyone else ?
Nevertheless, the new fallen look pretty awesome ^^.
May 22, 2009Holy fucking shit (excuse the language, it's really the only way to express my joy right now), I love them.Posted in: News
The new types of fallen make them feel more like an organized army than random bands of fallen, I think it will work incredibly well in game ^^.
Hopefully this may lead to some kind of fallen-seige, where you must defend an encampment/town from a band of fallen, and eventually kill their overseer ^^.
Would easily make a fun random quest, which we may actually get to see since Blizz was talking of making random quests a big part of D3.
Apr 1, 2009Zhar posted a message on New Diablo 3 Character Class Announced: The Archivist!Jesus Christ monkeyballs, they're reviving Blackthrorne :D.Posted in: News
I never did finish that game... damn goblins always owned me from across the gaps
Archivist looks like a good concept too, finally something completely new :D. Will have to read up on this one !
Sweet fucking jesus, just remembered that it's April 1st :/.
Dumbass moment right there lol.
Was overjoyed for a second there, then complete and utter sadness :(.
But hey, we'll get the next character soon enough :D.
Would have liked to see a revival of Blackthorne too, that was a classic game...
Mar 28, 2009A new franchise would be nice... would finally give Blizzard something new to work with, instead of constantly re-inventing old games (not that it's a bad thing!). But what would the new franchise be :/? Maybe another futuristic game? I doubt they would make another sword-and-spells style game if they make a new franchise, they have 2 of those at the moment, and only 1 future-style game. Hell, maybe even a game set in modern times. But whatever it turns out to be, no doubt that it will kick ass :D.Posted in: News
Mar 27, 2009I really hope they bring back starcraft ghost, I was so pumped for that game..Posted in: News
Perhaps a starcraft MMO, I really can't see them making a diablo MMO since D3 has b-net. Warcraft 4 is a definite contender too.... Oh the possibilities !!
