    The reason why the DH screams of unoriginality. Too many femme fatales already sporting leather and heels. It'd make me feel like im playing some Underworld videogame or something.

    Funny, the first person I thought of was Selene.



    The class didn't scream originality to me at any point. It did scream bad###ery.

    You have any idea how hard it is to balance and flesh out a fantasy world Apoc?

    heck just switching from being a dm for a high fantasy game session(this is what the world sanctuary from the diablo series is) to a low fantasy setting is a challenge.

    The diablo 3 devs are trying to build a world here apoc not some flimsy little arcade game without a story or background to why your killing things.

    Building a world is a serious undertaking that takes iteration after iteration to get even remotely near what your vision is. Its also very hard to do since you often have to make sure to kill your darlings over and over since they might sound awesome on paper but during play testing they end up not fitting into the setting your created or some parts might fit while others do not.

    If you look at the crafting sanctuary videos its exactly what they talk about when they explain how they made the demon hunter.
    this is a joke right? high heels ruin the depth of the world? so running around in armor that covers nothing makes sense? the barb suddenly becoming an idiot and having to relearn all his skills makes sense? way points make sense? i mean really would you build a transport system that allows people to instantly zap and entire army into your city? there are so many things that make no sense at all and high heels is really the stick in the mud? good thing being able to carry around 5 suits of armor while still throwing fireballs makes sense just dont do it in heels

    nope high heels is a common way to ruin the feeling on all female character just as armor that looks more like a bikini then a real armor.

    Most fantasy armors are crap when it comes to looking like armor at all so i am so used to that **** i am nowadays just trying to pick together something that look remotely like armor.

    As for the male barb that can be really easy to solve by some backstory of him being physical and mentally broken and that he has to relearn his skills and work up his physical form to its limits again.

    As for waypoints they have been a staple of fantasy stories for years. Often you need to have some knowledge to use them in other rpgs. As diablo is a action rpg they dont bother with that prerequisite and just let you use them as soon as you find them.

    but yes there is a lot of things that does not make sense however there is little need for high heels in any setting of any created world.

    The only reason high heels exists on female characters is to make them look sexy to males and some females, it fills no other purpose and that is why i dont like the overuse of them on female characters.

    Some of us are pretty tired of the need for characters to be sexy or when it comes to males macho.

    The Blizzard team said they wanted sexy and I think she's sexy enough without them.

    Thoughts?
    Let me put it this way. Blizzard managed to give the Queen of the Blades high heels, and she isn't even wearing anything...

    I think stilettos make perfect sense for a ranged character; she can slam on the toes of her enemies when they get too close, leaving her with valuable time to make her getaway.

    ...

    The fact that the developers choice of footwear bothers some people so much is baffling. I think we should forget about heels and talk about the functionality of Andariel's nipple rings.

    Yes, because barbarians, wizards and demons all scream of originality. :rolleyes:

    I seriously don't understand the complaint here. As TVTropes highlighted, this is nothing new. So, why is Blizzard being singled-out here? On the other hand, why are high heels being the only unrealistic issue being raised given the abudence of similarly implausible/impractical features such as the Witch Doctor's masks, the Barbarian's overmuscular physique and the general lack of protective armour worn by the heroes? If one can suspend belief for a lone hero to singlehandedly fight off hordes of thousands of demons, it shouldn't be that hard to accept that a person can fight comfortably in high heels.

    Lastly, why is it so unacceptable for a female character to maintain her femininity in the face of combat? She chose to wear those high heels into combat and if anything, it proves how tough and competent she is since she can still fight without them being a hindrance.

    Why the harping on sexiness when only one is?


    Well, I like the female Monk too, but only because I like the Sin's short hair look.
