Next Diablo 3 class will make players hate Blizzard

Fans will "hate" Blizzard when it announces the next Diablo III class, the developer has admitted.

The stark admission comes from Diablo III lead designer Jay Wilson, who in an interview with said that the developer "can't make everybody happy" with the classes in the hotly anticipated dungeon crawler.

He said: "All the barbarian players are delighted and all the necromancers hate us. I understand, I don't begrudge them that. I would hate me too! But what I would say is that when we announce the next class, which is quite similar to a previous class, then all those players will hate us too. You can't make everybody happy, but I think when the game finally come out players will find there's a good class for them, one they will love as much as the ones that came before. And if they don't, I absolutely promise that in the expansions we'll consider bringing back old classes. We just don't want to do it with the first release. We want to establish our identity."

I hope it won't be purple teletubby.

I did like all classes in D2. Ah, maybe except Amazon. Well see what Blizzard will give us.

maybe they are making the paladin dif...which is why were "hate" them.. cuz the pally kicked ridiclous ass

They are definitely talking about a Pally replacement. there are so many damn hammerdin bots running around. People will be pissed, but honestly I liked the game when it was people making the runs and not bots. I like being able to pick an item up with the same advantage as the next guy. Instead now, we are dealing with @$$holes with pickit. Its ridiculous.

I am looking forward to a BNET without spammers and bots.

Its going to be the replacement for either the Pally or the Sorc, I would be the Sorc for now, since we already have a major melee guy, and no straight up magic char.

I don't see why they didn't revamp _all_ the classes. Would have been much better to just scrap the barbarian as well, replace him with a new, fresh, yet similar class. And I'm not such a fan of having male/female versions of each class, I mean the barbarian is meant to be strong and the female barbarian would surely then be weaker? There's not really much point in that. Didn't they scrap all the classes from D1 as well for D2? I never played it.

Daver3591d ago

i agree with you at some point... they should have made all new classes, without barb and the female/male character choice is bad, i mean its not diablo

On topic, i hope they wont disapoint us, giving us a class known in another game or something, make something original
That dosnt sound too good when developper says we will hate them for what they are going to do

Drekken3591d ago

Thor, In D1 all classes could do magic spells by picking up skill books. It was a fun game, but D2 was WAY better. I expect the same from D3.

I will miss the asn. I hope they bring some form of quick claw melee back to D3.... Asn owns!

Daver3591d ago

that would really suck lol

Drekken3591d ago

I doubt it. They already said they wouldnt do that. Plus - How would a dedicated healer play alone? There is still a single player campaign.

Daver3591d ago


not because hes a healer that he cant hold a sword so that could work but i hope they wont do it
