    I hope they insert a Rogue class or keep the Assassin but add a stealth ability. That way in co-op we could have a sick Rogue Healer combo. Gank and heal.

    I can't wait for this.I just hope they don't back down on the their Diablo will always be free to play rule.If is pay to play,count me out.It would be cool if they release it on console,can't say it won't happen.I still have my Diablo for the PS1.

    For those that play D2 or reinstalling it. Acc. name is Lordnatas,if anyone wants to do some CSruns or just lvl and mess around.

    The Cinematic trailer was neat, and the gameplay video looks great too, although one thing confuses me.

    Why are they continuing the 'point and click' movement method? I've played Diablo 2 once or twice, that movement system shat me to tears then, and time has not sweetened it. My good friends (all avid fans of D2) says its a hallmark of the game, but that sounds like a cop out to me.

    Otherwise, game looks nice and solid.

    They might have an option for both. I don't see how you can use a jump feature just using the mouse click....unless it's an ability.

    It's a Barbarian ability. Even in D2 the Barb had leap and leap attack. I don't think it could actually jump across obstacles with the skill in D2 though.

    You could jump over a bonewall/prison or people and you could jump across the lava in the river of flame.

    Ah, that refreshes my memory. I used to use leap attack to help rush my friends in the river of flame before I had Enigma.

    Leap attack is great in the Arcane Sanctuary too, jump right over the 3 tier stair things and completely ignore the teleporters in the one section. If i remember right i've even jumped over doors.

    The Barb's new ground pound shockwave attack looks sweet. Barb can has ranged attack?

    Yowch. Barbarian got munched in half in the gameplay video there... Diablo III taking some cues from Dawn of War?

    Oh man, so many video games I want to play, so little time...

    You know, this is indeed the greatest news, but I really wish it was coming to Consoles now that they have the horse-power. I simply cannot justify upgrading my PC for one game no matter how much I love this game.

    Woot! sorry but i am out of words after watching all the stuff and reading. I remember fondly wasting away the summer before my senior year of high school every night after work and before work grinding away and away.


    Any idea the reqs yet?

    The great news is that Bliz is making it accesable to people who don't have Monster computers. God I miss the days of Diablo 2. I still own it too.

    I've reinstalled it for a bit of nostalgia play.

    BTW, Titan quest is quite a good Diablo clone if you want some better graphics,

    Missed this thread - just heard about the news of D3 today. Absolutely stoked for it.

    Hope that the pala does make a comeback. Favourite class by a mile :)
