Two Unannounced Classes And Expansions PossibilitiesPosted 14 Apr 2009 by
Bashiok returned to an earlier post about the characters in Diablo III, and added a lot more info. What he says is shadowy (hidden) and open to various interpretations, so we welcome fans to share their own ideas here. Jay Wilson had revealed in a interview many months ago that there were plans for expansions and that some of the Diablo II classes would return in the expansions. Bashiok mentioned in this new thread plans for some classes in “expansions”, and something particularly teasing about other spells we don’t know yet about for the Witch Doctor.
In addition, Bashiok says that fans think the Witch Doctor is to replace the Necromancer or resemble it, but that we should see the flavor he brings. This makes me think that the Witch Doctor will be the healer in a coop gameplay team. That’s my personal hunch. Which leaves the two remaining unannounced classes to be something very interesting in the DPS department. Feel free to share your possible classes.
I’m more than happy with you expressing your opinion, and as I summed it up yes essentially your opinion was that you wanted more originality. That’s fine, but I was just saying the way in which it was presented was practically inedible.
Well, I’m not sure I can discuss much more without showing our hand. But! I think we’ll have at least one class in the game that will appeal to everyone. And that’s sort of the goal with the core game, hit those main archetypes that everyone can identify with. “Hey, a Wizard… I’m pretty sure I know what that’s all about without even seeing it.” Any potential expansions are probably where you’d try out something not of a core archetype like, say, an assassin or druid. ;P
The witch doctor is a bit riskier, and I think sometimes written off as just a twist on the necromancer, but no one has really seen most of his abilities and the flavor he brings. He still has a lot left for people to discover.—source
