Diii.net continues to present excerpts from their exclusive interview with Diablo 3 Game Director Jay Wilson. Today's segment covers the items in Diablo 3. Jay talks about Monk-specific items, new item types, combat uses, and much more.
The Diablo 3 team always claims that they do itemization last, but they seem to have quite a bit done already, from all Jay had to say about it.
Yes, they probably mainly say that so fanboys won't be pestering them for specific stats, as some attributes might change or be removed completely...
jay was pretty evasive on the "any new item types" question. - are there any new item types? - yes - besides the monk's fist weapons? - no comment.
Speaking with a low, husky voice and being evasive, what else does he do at Blizzard? :P
Cool, I wanted to know more about items! :)
Hiding the facts!
Well, that's a bit harsh...
The game already features lasers with the Wizard Disintegrate skill so maybe we are goin got see something similar in weapon form as well? ^^ I kind of hope not.
What about weapons with spell charges? Would basically be a Laser gun then! :)
Teh epix DIII lewtz!!! lol but seriously this is awesome! :D
Nice concept art, nice article.
I always thought they made these kinds of games backwards in terms of levels and items if you know what i mean. For example they design the game around maxed out characters with uber gear and then work out a cool and addictive way to drip feed you all the items and abilities slowly but in a way that a low level badly equipped character is still fun to play.
As long as it's fun I don't much care. Thanks for article.
i feel like i've been reading about this game for 10 years. when is it coming out?
