The Official Diablo 3 Thread

If you havent heard the news, blizzard has officially confirmed diablo 3. Dont believe? Click the link

http://www.blizzard.com/diablo3/?rhtml=y


No word yet on whether or not its pay to play but i hope to god its not. If they do charge a fee than a small one is all they should ask for, like $5 a month. So far only 2 classes have been announced, but there will be a total of 5. The Barbarian is making his/her return (you can customize gender in d3) and a Witch Doctor has been implemented. Check the website for more details but post thoughts, comments, and what you would like to see in D3 right here.



Personally I want to see a level of customization very similar to Elder Scrolls Oblivion, like being able to create a character from scratch, like how they look, their height, color hair, black/white/hispanic/asian. I am going to hate it if the games marketplace becomes another SOJ currency market. How about everyone else?

I'm very hopeful but with Starcraft also coming out soon and the expansion to WOW, I'm sure this new diablo will be pay to play. I hope they keep it cheap like you said, I'm already paying for a warcraft account as it is.

They said it was gonna be going through battle.net again so i don't know that you will have to pay to play. Plus it's also got a single player mode unlike WOW which just furthers that belief for me.

This is finally happening?!

I was completely addicted to D2 and LoD in highschool.
If this happens I can say goodbye to my social life.

Yea and I agree with you about those damned rings.

It's on battle.net so most likely it will be free. But honestly I wish we have to pay for it because the battle.net servers suck ass and are laggy. You always have to deal with you characters data being erased or incorrect. Remember playing Diablo 2 for hours and getting more levels and new gear and your computer got the blue screen of death, only to log on and find out that all your progress was gone. I'd rather pay 15 dollars a month and have an enjoyable experience along with regular patches unlike Diablo 2 which takes years for updates cause we don't play monthly to staff a productive customer service or development team.

I'm sure with this game will come a major revamp of Battle.net, they won't be able to ckeep there customers with it's current perforance. This is Blizzard were talking about, they will more then likely bring it up to WOW standards function wise.

You wont have to pay to play this online. Battle net is free.

In terms of blizzards releases WoW:wrath of the litch king then SC2 then Diablo. Dont expect it to come out for another two years or so.

They are totally revamping B.net for Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3, so it will be a much better online experience and will be no monthly fee.

I personally cannot wait. I'm totally reinstalling D2 and playing it again.

Diablo is good because its not a game you sit for hours and hours on end playing. unlike wow where lives are completely consumed.

Bull. I had a room mate. That I never saw. I don't have to say more. The only thing I new about him was that he leveled a 99 barbarian that had a full immortal king and kraken set of armor.

And he never came out. I've never seen a game in my life that couldn't become addicted. Hell I once had a Sims addicted roomie.

well i gess i was wrong? lol i mean to say that the game mechanics are alot different in D2 then a mroe addiciting game like WoW. The social aspect is what people get addicted to due to the fact that they can become who ever they want online. The game play is fun but its the people you meet that make it worth doing. I was a hard core gamer back in the day so i would like to think i have a pretty good grasp on the addicition aspect. Further more Diablo never utilized internet voice programs such as teamspeak or ventrilo due to the fact that the tech wasnt out there when the game came out. It also had a lesser end game mechanic to it. I dont see how some one could be addicted to that game unless they really sucked at it or had very few friends.

But i see where your coming from.

O and a note on the D3. wtf is a witch doc. Bring back the necro imo. And i cant imagine fi they will butcher the sorc, pally, and zon. But due to the fact that you can ahve either gender as charecters i dont think the zon will be there.

there will be 8 characters total, male and female, im pretty sure the necro will be making a comeback, i think all the originals will be back, and then they will add 1 more new character in addition to the witch doctor, he looks badass though, a wall of zombies? genius

Omg I can't wait for this game!! I think im gonna have to re install D2 LOD to ease the pain of waiting..

Sorc's for the win baby smile.gif Or maybe a Paladin.. I used to be big into hunting down keys and then going to special Tristram and getting those bomb ass 2 block charms. ( forget the names... .. +2 skill and a bunch of other shit..)

If any of your guys start playing I should be on the US East realm.. Not sure about the acct name yet though.

I'd once considered doing my senior thesis for my metalsmithing & jewelry degree on video game jewelry. Kinda chronicle how the dark ages had all these legends of gems and artifacts and then how video games began to pick up on that with dungeons & dragons and then move into how they interpret jewelry with games today like warcraft where you have skills such as 'jewel crafting'.


What I ultimately wanted to end up with is this large rediculous sized silver ring with 4 huge cut topaz set on top. The title's of the piece was going to be ' +100 to magic find'

lol

From what I have heard through the grapevine,it will be free online play.I am extremely excited about Diablo 3.For years I played Diablo 1 and 2.Although I have one concern about the new game,and that is the camera angles that I've been seeing in the videos.We all know that Blizzard is well known for strange POV's lol...I only wish this would kill off WoW...But that will sadly not happen.

Wow is actually starting to loose players due to blizzard destroying the game, and other games coming out. Age of conan took a few, when warhammer gets back into development that will be a huge blow, fable in oct. Wow will dwindle in numbers. I ahve a feeling this expansion will be the last. What they need to do is come out with another reg warcraft to follow frozen throne.
