Necro as the first character I played. It was fun for a long time, but that was our multiplayer game only. I think I had the most solo fun with the paladin since Thorns and Zeal are pretty much OP for anything that isn't a Boss.

Worse part is that it seems like they already have a model for the necromancer in D3. If I am not mistaken, the traitor/cultist Jondar you need to kill for the Templar's mission in the Cathedral dungeon has a character model akin the the d2 necromancer and uses poison nova against you.

Thanks Blizz.

Aren't some of the old characters the boss in this game?

But meh, WD is WD, and Necro is Necro. Not like it will affect my playing experience anyway. As much as I love the Necromancer, he's not the reason I play Diablo in the first place.

I'm curious of this as well, like how the heroes of diablo1 presumably became bosses in diablo2 (hell, one of them becomes diablo lol).

Actually I think I did read somewhere that our characters from D2 will be corrupted somehow in D3.

There was a though early on the the player Barbarian (male) would be the same character as D2. But I think they scrapped that.

How so? D2 charecters didn't put soulstone on their forehaed after defeated Diablo.

Personally, I quite like Leah = Diablo theory that floating around internet.

I don't know. I just remember there is used to be a rumor about a leaked image of Diablo 3's bosses, and some theory about the old characters returns as bosses appeared.
Even
Spoiler for Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled about the story in D3:

Well a necromancer being a boss isn't too crazy. Isn't the whole point of their order that they believe in balance between good and evil. The only reason the necromancers joined the fight for good in 2 was because the evil side of the scales was way out there compared to good.

Yeah I'm curious how the story will explain our previous heroes from D2. What would be awesome is if they were available as epic npc teammates and they had their exclusive D2 skills

IIRC all that's been said about the D2 heroes is that their ordeals drove them to madness; I figure they were stuck in some place like the one Baal attacked. Dunno about them scrapping the Barbarian idea or not.

Well, the Beta has closed. Time for the agonising wait for the game release. Made much more painful because I will be stuck in the jungle for a week before I can come back and play the game.

On the bright side... I won't need to experience the Hell of Week-01 log-in, and the bugs associated with it.

Having sampled all the Heroes up till Lvl-13, I am most definitely going to be focusing on the Wizard first. It helps also that her personality is the most colourful out of the five heroes. That laugh is infectious.

I also find it interesting that she is the only one whose Short Story directly references to the Hero that we get to play as in the actual game. In the other short stories, they only refer to the in-game heroes indirectly.

In short, there are many Barbarians, Monks, Demon Hunters, and Witch Doctors, but only one Wizard.

Cheers.

It was nice knowing you Beta. But by now I'd gone through it so many time with all the characters that I'm ready to take a breather until the real thing arrives. Can only do so much.

I'm also going to start off with the Wizard. Probably will go male though. Still just having all that firepower will be a ton of fun. Besides back when D2 came out I had such a bad computer I couldn't play the magic classes, needed something that when the game lagged up I could just keep swinging with.

This will be a ton of fun.

Actually, the Witch Doctor and Monk are unique in their kind as well.
Especially the Witch Doctor, he's an outcast who rebeled against his kind.

Yeah, but they're still monks and witch doctors. There's really one one person in the world who claimed the title of wizard.

*sigh* wanted to try the beta to see if it'd sway my mind, but I couldn't log in no matter how much I tried these past few days. A pity, since I am somewhat interested despite my hesitations on the whole online singleplayer. Though it does reaffirm my opinion that the online singleplayer system is a crappy system.

Isn't the beta ended like, a week ago? Unless you're invited to closed beta, which is ended yesterday.

When did you try to get in?

Open beta weekend ended last week and closed beta ended a day or two ago. Depending on when you tried the open beta you could have hit a little maintenance period. I know for a good portion of Friday they were down. However, at least for me they worked perfectly for the rest of Friday night and well into Sunday night (Eastern Time).

Either way it's ended. I played the open beta and wasn't convinced. So you can wait with me for post-release reviews and game play videos

No matter how many petty complaints from me, there's still a diablo I nerd in me that wants this game.

Got the beta early in the year and was somewhat disappointed. I think I made the right choice of not playing the game ever since then as some anticipation is starting to grow within me again.

I am looking forward to playing the game with some of my old WoW friends!
