They'll probably add it in with the second expansion after interest in the game fades. Good ol' ATVI is going to hold stuff back so they can squeeze 2-3 expansions in the next 5 years.

I remember reading a dev post that said they decided not to include the Paladin because the class was "too good" for Diablo 3, there was no way they make the class feel like an improvement over Diablo 2 without being too strong compared to the other classes since the class was already perfect.

The logic of the decision does very little to quell the disappointment =(

I also heard the best testers blizzard has have not yet beaten the inferno mode.


Race? Think you mean class.

But either Monk/Wizard.

I tried Witch Doctor on beta and it felt way OP.


How was the witch doctor compared to the necromancer from d2?


Soo the thing with D3 is that all the customization you had in D3, doesn't come really until higher levels soo I personally didn't feel I had enough play time with the Witch Doctor to say how similar or different they are.

I'll tell you one thing throwing barrels of spiders is FUN & OP.

I don't know how I'm going to split gaming time between EVE Online, Minecraft, and Diablo III.

Is that still a thing?
I read a long time ago that D3 was entirely online
and That was what really ruined 1&2 for me.
All the cheating and hacking and lagging etc.


So the whole game is online now even single player. But now blizzard Online Service "battlenet" is essentially hack proof, the whole goal of them having it all online was they can stop modders/hackers.



But I live way out in the Country and our internetz dont work so fast from the satellites.
I'm still getting it and gonna try 2 force it to work with the slowness
but I wish there were at least an option for single player as in the first two.

I was pissed about the no Paladin, too, definitely think the monk is just not as cool. I didn't get to try the beta but I bought it, feeling the barbarian so far.

That's crazy about no testers beating inferno mode though, I can't see being good enough to even try it.

It's totally not the same! The monk is decentish. I had lots of fun with the Demon Hunter and Barb.

pre ordered, but just to get facts right, the online only method wont prevent anything.

ubisoft tried to do that with Assassins Creed and it was hacked for offline use with a fake "server" that runs localhost within a few days.

I heard that with the single player, the monsters are populated via blizzards side not user side. So that might be something to overcome...

I doubt it will be different enough/much improved from the previous version to hold my attention for long. Once you smash all the content it will probably get boring.

But it will hold me over until I start nerding it up in GW2!

Wrath


*Notice that when Diablo is slain, all but Malthael get covered in blood... And Diablo says the trap has been sprung.

I can look past the animation style simply because they explain more of the Lore of the Heavens or what have you.

I don't want to get the game, but I have to get the game.

First world problems.

Would like to get the game but a.) Don't have a decent enough PC, and b.) the internet over here tends towards being prevailantly shitty.
Guess I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope they make an xbox version :(

It gives me a chuckle thinking about people like Waylander and Romaniello bent over a computer, clicking away.

I for one can't wait for it. I didn't play the beta, so I will have to experiment with the classes before picking one to play all the way through with.

Hope to play with some of yall sometime perhaps.

I still don't know if I'm getting this

First I'm not sure if my PC can handle it (it's a laptop so Can You Run It can't properly analyze it)

Second, not too sure about the online only thing
