Blizzard, Zombie Bears, and Fetish Warriors RevealedPosted 30 March 2011 by Flux
Our friend KLS over at Diablo3.net.ua, a Russian-language Diablo 3 site, pointed us to a newly-posted video from last year’s Blizzcon. It’s a zoomed in closeup of the monitor during the Blizzcon 2010 Gamplay Panel, during the Arena discussion.
We’ve seen this footage before; it starts around the 9:15 mark from part four of the hour-long panel. This fan video is a super closeup of the monitor though, which lets us see the details of several things we’ve never clearly seen, including the Wizard’s Blizzard spell.
Better yet, the Witch Doctor joins in, and fires off several stampedes of his infamous Zombie Bears! He also casts what seems to be Fetish Army (0:45), which creates a glowing green cooking pot, around which (Gidbinn style) a pack of Fetish appear. They proceed to swarm the Wizard, though the WD clearly needs the runestone that turns them into explosive Bone Fetish.
Note that the characters in this video have some different skills than were available in the PvP Arena demo at Blizzcon. Clearly the devs did some more testing between the time they recorded the footage for the panel and finalized the demo for the show, since Blizzard, Arcane Orb, Fetish Army, and Zombie Charger (Rune’d to Bear form or not) were *not* available to players to use in the PvP demo. Blizzard and Fetish Army weren’t available in the PvM either, since they were too high of a level, which is why this video gives us our first good look at those skills.
