Blizzard on Diablo 3 Expansion Classes & Wordsearch

Posted 13 Feb 2013 by

Blizzard hasn’t said anything about the class(es) they’re developing for the Diablo 3 expansion, but a CM did at least rule a couple of player suggestions out for lore reasons.

TyraelI would love this, to play as angel or demon and you eventually become one of the two classes i mentioned above! ( they should be hero classes) The Archangel will have for example Holy power as resource and Deathangel demonic power etc.
Vaneras: Archangel and Deathangel classes wouldn’t really fit with the lore, simply because they are not Nephalem. The Nephalem are the offspring of angels and demons, and within them is the combined essence(or spirit if you will) of both angels and demons, which is what is giving the Nephalem the potential to be even greater than both.

but what if an angel wants to become human like tyrael wanted and he still has some angelic powers
Vaneras: An angel may become human as was learned when Tyrael renounced his immortality and was cast from the high heavens, but even if angelic powers are retained after an angel become human, this will still not be enough as those powers are still “only” angelic.

The OP also suggested that these classes have, ” badass skills and spells.” Can you argue with that? No, I didn’t think so.

Elsewhere, a fan contributed a Diablo-themed wordsearch. Click through for that.

Hey.. Just finished this.. A picture for you guys to search words on if you need a break slaying monsters in the sanctuary.
Nakatoir: Printed it out just now and giving it a whirl, just found “Tyrael” while looking for “Adria”.

First word found! *fistpump*

I used to love word searches when I was a kid, and always thought about making my own, but leaving one word out. A short word that people would assume just *had* to be there… somewhere. Fortunately I matured over the decades and no longer desire to commit minor acts of evil. Let’s hope the guy who made this Wordsearch can say the same.

Diablo 3 wordsearch contains hours of fun.
