Default The Diablo dice Speculation


So, I just heard about this rumour based on a die... Not sure if it is true or not, but I like the idea.

Quick summary: The blizzcon 2016 goodie bag includes a diablo dice bag. With the foursided die (a D4...) being misprinted for apparently everyone who received the goodie bag already. The D4 reads ,depending from which side you look at it, you read it 1/1/4 1/4/1 or 4/1/1, which can be seen as a clue to the 4th of November. In addition to that, the dice bag it's included in has not the standard Diablo logo, but one with a four sided element to it.

I can't believe I watched all of it. Anyway sounds interesting and I'd love a D4, but D3 needs a proper conclusion with another expansion. I wonder if they will go full RPG.

I'd like to note that for some "odd" reason, in the video with all the developer interviews from the day before gamescom, they used the square diablo logo from the dice bag in the diablo interview.

Maybe it's some kind of Diablo pen-and-paper game? I know they did a D&D adaptation of it back in 3rd edition or so, but maybe this is a new system. I'm not sure why else they'd emphasize dice.

Funny story: they also put out a bare bones Starcraft campaign setting for TSR's short-lived Alternity pen-and-paper system. It was clear that the writers knew nothing about Starcraft, since you could bluff or bribe zerglings.

Yes, I actually owned this.

Because it's a D4.

D2 elemental druid is probably my all-time favorite Diablo build, and I keep hoping something like it will pop up in D3.

Honestly I've always wished Balance would play more like D2 elemental druids, instead of the sun and moon bullshit it's got going on now. That'll probably never happen though cause it'd be too similar to ele shaman.

Honestly, I think an expansion pack seems more likely at this point. Reaper of Souls is in a pretty decent place right now and it still took two years for us to get it. Waiting three years for a meatier expansion doesn't seem out of the question.

Then again, after it became the fastest selling PC game at the time... I could see Activision pushing them to put out a proper, full sequel instead.

It's going to be a dice-based Diablo pen&paper game. Or maybe pen& paper but virtual like Hearthstone.

Doubt it. The Diablo 2 Tabletop RPG was a complete bust.

I would rather have d4 at this point.

D3 is rather bland tbh.

But I heavily doubt that.
