So. . .they pretty much just brought back the Sorcerer/Sorceress and renamed him/her. Like how the Witch Doctor is basically replacing the Necromancer.

Next two classes are going to be Ranger and Crusader. It's pretty much inevitable.

Still waiting on the "Rogue/Amazon but we won't call it that" class, since they said "no other classes are returning from previous games"

Yes it is another caster, but I like how the wizard's spells focus more on reality warping and chaos magick, rather than the Sorceress' mostly elemental abilities. I also like how Blizzard went against type by giving the class an Asian feel, as oppossed to the more cliched Rogue/Assassin/Ranger style class. Of course, if the Wizard is Asian and each D3 has a specific ethinic flavor, there's goes my hopes for a Monk. Maybe in the expansion...

As one guy pointed out, it's interesting how Diablo classes get super abilities much sooner than WoW ones. Granted, there's a lot more content in WoW to go through, but still.

Sure hope just one class and renamed units aren't the only reveals at Blizzcon...

Question: Has the race (real life) ever effected your choice of character? I originally intended to be a Necromancer, but I had second thoughts when the Necromancer stand in, the witch doctor, was Black. Similarly, I'm interested in this wizard, but not so sure about the character being so Asian oriented. I think it's because I'm a RPer at heart, and I'm paranoid about making cultural faux pas.

Considering he says the EXACT same line from Diablo 1, yes it's him.

And yes, that's awesome.

I do roleplay at heart, and I find that the "proud fighting race" guys are always to my liking

Since the characters are not actually from Asia or Africa and you won't have to RP them thusly, I don't think it should be a problem so long as you know about the fictional setting.

You're a horrible person and should die in liquid hot magma.

I find the official page too focused in the female mage.

Dunno if she is the one we play, or just the master of those mages we'll play.

Meh, with all the novel hype about the Nephalem and how the human race was starting to become a natural super powered magical being, i´m kinda disappointed with the generic name.


The time slow however, is fucking awesome, same goes with the return of King Leoric.

Yeah, I confirm it:

It's King Leoric.

The final boss of the BlizzCon D3 demo, actually.

Just realized that the Wizard has the Protoss Mothership's timebomb and the Protoss Warp Ray's prismatic beam.

What we have here is a protoss spacecraft with tits!

Yes Omacron, I play only WASP Human players. As a matter of fact all my WoW characters have blonde hair and blue eyes.
