    It really looks like a caster.


    P.S. And what's up with the armour? Really, heavy armour with spikes? I mean spikes? What self respecting archer wants spikes on their armour. That's probably the best way to lose balance.
    The late game gear looks bad yes but the middle ones look great so you can probably mix and match so you can avoid those shoulder horns.

    Re: Demon Hunter!

    She looks pretty awesome to me. The only think I dislike about her is her background I guess. "Demons killed my family and I'm back for revenge" doesn't really cut it for me.

    The assassin had much better lore IMO. They're the freakin Black Ops of the freakin Vizjerei, sworn to hunt down rogue sorcerers in order to prevent an other Mage War. Now that just sounds like pure w!n to me.

    What about...

    "Demons killed my family... So I entered a group of people who taint themselves, sworn to kill any demon that roams the world, sepparated from any other society, and with darkness all over my veins... and I'm back for revenge..."

    For the record... Add a "i'm back for revenge!" for any single phrase and it simply sounds funny...

    I think having a short and simple background is enough.

    Well if you put it that way I guess her story has more punch to it.
    But it still remains pretty generic to me. Mind you, I'm not saying it's worse than that of the other characters.

    Quite so, some of the best stories out there are some of the most simple. I'm not bashing on the designers here, I just think D1 and D2 had more fitting themes tied to their characters.

    But now that I think about it... Only the Necro, sorc and assa fitted D2 well. I never really thought the ama, barb, pala and druid fitted well into Sanctuary in the first place. ^^

    Re: Demon Hunter!

    This is, by far, my favorite character. I usually have a hard time getting into ranged characters, but this one looks like a blast to play. I've never wanted to play a ranged character so much.

    Don't get me wrong, she's pretty cool. But some of us like melee, and some of us like the DH, so it logically follows that some of us would like the option of playing a DH who can use melee. But they may add melee later, and if they don't it's not the end of the world, I guess. She'll probably be the last or second-to-last class I roll anyway.

    Hybridizing (which effectively is what ranged and melee combined is) isn't i the game currently. So it's a focus one something much more different (as a ranged character has some similarities with casters).

    You switch to a melee weapon because those do more damage and/or are faster. And you switch to a melee weapon because it allows for high security such as weapon block or a shield.


    [edit]
    And what's up with her legs?

    Re: Demon Hunter!

    Love the new DH! Almost certainly my fav character now.

    I have one tiiiiiiny little gripe - it bugs me a little to see a character having an endless amount of something physical to throw around, eg. the grenades/kinves. I'm not usually one to favor realism over fun but conceptually, the idea that she has an infinite number of grenades and knives in her pockets bugs me a little bit. Doing it like that makes the grenades/knives essentially magic spells which is fine, just, you know, make it an actual magic spell instead of calling it a grenade.... (the Assasin's throwing blades in D2 bugged me also bugged me for the same reason.)
