Default Reaper of Souls

As posted elsewhere

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/reaper-of-souls/

I'd say get excited but I don't think we know how to do that anymore.

Speak for yourself!

Not that there's really much to get excited about that we weren't already expecting: there is going to be a D3 expansion

I am a little hopeful about it and the chance they may fix a lot of the issues in D3.

According to the Book of Cain, he left the Angris Council after the Worldstone was destroyed. He abstained when the vote to let the Nepahlem live came up in the Sin War, but never really stated why. He was the Archangel of Wisdom before he left, and now we don't really know what he's up to.

The rumor, though, is that he has become the Archangel of Death. Considering the quote and the name of the expansion, I would bet anything that he's the final boss, and that we enter the Realm of the Dead (Now Malthael's realm) to rescue Leah. Let's just hope there's more than one Act.

Not gunna lie... the Angel of Death is a great and refreshing angle to take this expansion... assuming they don't fuck it up.

That would be a first for them. Especially for Diablo 3 story.

Reposting what I said in a similar thread.

Also tornado monsters would have been cool too.

If we get a new class I'd bet it'd wear heavy armor, like the barbarian. We have monks and demon hunters in medium and wizards and witch doctors in light. But only the barbarian can wear heavy armor so far.

What a coincidence.



I'd rather have druids or necromancers. Necromancer lore in Diablo is actually really good.

I do like the necromancer lore, but gameplay wise I can't see them differing from the witch doctor. In the same way that the monk is rogue+paladin rolled into one, the witchdoctor is actually the druid and necromancer.

Revised Druids could probably wear heavy armor to deviate from the WoW variety.

Plus if a Barbarian can still pull off the shirtless berserker look even with plate, then I imagine it wouldn't be too terribly difficult to pull off with a Druid either.

They could also add a shadow knight type class. Heavy armor, STR primary stat, revives the necromancy theme that was heavily butchered through the introduction of the witch doctor.

Otherwise, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Druid's return. A terrible class, but it's really the only one that hasn't had its motif melded heavily with D3's current five classes.

Edit: They could also add a bard, too, I suppose.

They should continue the trend of having classes people want for WoW and add a Tinker.

I would laugh. I'd play it, though.

Holy shit, the crusader looks awesome, but why didn't they just call it a paladin cause let's be honest - it's exactly what it is but with new and polished abilities.

Malthaels design is really fucking cool, I love the visuals of his soul draining, the liquidy/cobwebby essence. Very creepy.

Gotta say I love the cinematic. I love how they're returning back to the dark art rather than the colourful one in the D3.

It looks like this new lead designer knows where he's going. I just hope he has the right idea for story as well.
