    Depends on the class really, if you were a Zealadin there would hardly be a need to change skills. :p Anyway they've changed this and the skillbar looks a bit like that from WoW, which is a good thing.

    I wish necros would return as PCs. So much death would go to waste otherwise.

    As much as I hated the no "save as you go" like in D1, the respawing monsters was a really good way to get your levels up.

    I discovered that when i started playing Nightmare, and kept dying. I was a martial arts assassin. And traps I thought as cheating.

    Agreed i think that with the no monster respawn thing it would have been a pain to try and level each time.. I like the respawned monsters plus more boss kills = more loot.

    I hope my PC can run it well (I've got an Alienware that's about 3 years old).

    As for the spider hands comment, I still remember how my sisters and I would play Diablo together. One on the mouse, one on the spells and one ready with the potions.

    Open B.net is where you make a charcter on your pc and then you can take it on to b.net whenever you want.. It is in options other multiplayer.. You make it under single player and then can take it online at your leisure.

    I don't currently have Diablo on my computer, took it off to play KOTOR when I had it. Also, I'm studying at the moment and there's the temptation just to play all the time.

    But that's another topic...

    Something I was wondering...

    That woman in the trailer, could that have been Adria. We never found out much about her, did we? (And what a hike it was to get to her place!)

    No one knows yet, there is speculation that she is Leah, who the barbarian mentions in the gameplay vid, who Cain refers to as a nursemaid.

    Most people think that she will be the Marius of D,3 the star of the Cinematics, whom the player has little to no contact with.

    Bonus

    Interesting, that Marius story was what made Diablo II. I wonder what Cain's been doing all of these years...

    Found this website that has all types of neat info regarding diablo 3. They have some comments from ex-blizzard employees talking about there involvement with the project and what they agreed with and what has changed since the first beta of the game.

    Something interesting:

    the original design documents for Diablo III included a set of all new character classes, with no reappearance of old character classes (our reasons for this was simple -- since we were enhancing and improving the skill system, we didn't want to try and adapt old skills into a new system -- we'd rather create all new skills for the new character classes.

    I wonder if this means OTHER character classes will return. Barb was good in DII, but he was the easiest choice if you wanted a fast game.

    I'll need a summoner. I don't even know anymore how you actually fight by yourself. :p All my Barbs and Paladins sucked

    I had some good fun with a Zealadin (crazy attacking speeds FTW!) until I started running into lightning-enchant monsters...I recall not really paying attention to my enemies as I was destroying everyone then hitting a physical immune lightning enchant thing. Two clicks of Zeal on him and I died. Boo.

    What I want is a combo of magic and combat where once enhances the other, were I also can keep on fighting without bothering to cast spells (except to enhance my skills before I began)

    Yes, I was a pure martial arts assassin ;)

    New Diablo looks good so far. But somehow I have the feeling it won't be as eerie as the first (two).

    I find it odd that there are only 2 character classes thus far. [face_thinking] Hope they add more.

    Oh, there will be additional classes. Gender is also selectable within every class that will be available. I imagine we can count on approximately 5 character classes overall.

    I could not help noticing how similar it was to Sanctuary.

    Bumping this to the top to discuss the new wizard class. What did you guys think of the release of the wizard class.
