  1. :fencing HOW DIABLO 3 SHOULD BE...
    Classes/Races:
    Diablo 3 needs to have class/race combinations to make players different. Whenever i go in a game i see the same old stuff. All chars these days are too similar. Diablo 3 needs to have variety.
    Classes (Of course the D2x chars): Barbarian, Paladin, Sorceress, Necromancer, Amazon, Druid, Assassin. New Classes: Archer, Ranger, Beastmaster, Cleric, Mage, Wizard, Fighter, Warrior, Rouge, Sorcerer, Priest, Demon Summoner, General, Bard, Theif, Illusionist, Mummy and Soldier. Possibly more.

    Races: As i said before to many people are similar in the diablo world. Make the game more unique and original. Then whenever u join a game u will see somthing new not the same @$%! every single game. Races should include: Humans, Elfs, Orcs, Dwarfs, Cat people, Angels, Succubus, Goblins, Undead, Insects, Bird people, and Demons. Also there will be mixes of the classes. Of course there could be many more.

    Hmm...wouldn't the system be rather complicated though with that many classes and races in the game?

    Then and again, we might have a similar game compared to WC and SC. But yeah, you've got good suggestions. :)

    I wanna be the evil dude the next time. It'd really be interesting to see what goes on in the mind of the bad apples. :D

    It would be cool to have two sides to the game:
    Evil
    and
    Good

    The game needs more teamplay which means more classes and such...also instead of being able to murder hundreds of helpless cows on a ranch, you and your party would be taking down 1-5 enemies at a time.

    You can choose to be good as a Human, Elf, Barbarian or Amazon..
    or
    you can be evil as an Undead or Monster or Demon.

    Some classes for good could be:
    Ranger - uses dual wield and fast and accurate scimitars, bow as a next weapon and can use nature to do small buffs
    Paladin - same, but include more healing abilities and stronger
    Warrior - like the barbarian class in D2, but more towards attacks and defenses than any warcries
    Archer - excellent with the bow and crossbow
    Rogue - like EQ and D2 without the weak traps
    Cleric - Can heal the party, buff, and use good energy to kill
    Bard - Sings songs / warcries to buff the party or to hurt enemies
    Druid - Can shapeshift, summon animals, use nature to buff and attack
    Enchanter - Can imbue items, socket maybe, enchant creatures, party,and items temporarily, summon items for a game.


    As for evil...
    Necromancer - raises undead and uses evil energy to kill
    Shadow Knight - opposite of the paladin, wields 2h weapons, can raise an undead pet
    Fallen Warrior - loses all his angel abilities and wings :( and is like a warrior, but evil.
    Archer - same but with evil skills and such
    ....more....

    Instead of having tons of games on the server, the server has premade games like some made for JUST starting, some for working in Kurast, and some for killing Diablo and such, but there will be more than just that, like games for trading and a NEW ACT just for PvP.

    Each game allows 24 players to join. (good for dueling or taking down diablo)

    Diablo would be like . . . Lady Vox or Veeshan in EQ. He would be tough to take down. Everyone would have to use their skills to help.

    I don't know...thats my two coppers..

    I wuold like to say... orcs elves and other fantasystuff doesn´t fit in the diablo universe. Think! A orc and a elf hounting a evil demon in the diablo universe! HAHA :D

    But i like that evil/good stuff... it would be cool with being a evil demon or even a ghost with skills that have never been seen and go hunting the good guy to stop their plans of an evil destinction.
    hehehe. Forget that legion of classes. If the game gonna be popular it cant be too difficult and complicated!

    And ffs!
    Humans and ordinary animals are the good guys! All other creatures is evil! Thats the diablo universe style... they cant change that. Other kind of humans is the only way to change it from the! Previous games, right?!?!

    i like Keldramir's idea but making it to much like the classic dnd would make it a lot like never winter night. And if you like nwn then you can just play that i think that d3 should be like d3 but have a much larger world more options on movement and so on.. deeper story line. And a much darker of a world to really show a grousom scary world like a actual hell.

    lol, torrid, the world would rock! But i don't think we should have the evil good thing. If i signed up to be like a demon for instances, i don't want to half to be evil just because i'd be a demon. I think the good and evil thing should be tossed out, or at least let there be a neutral ground where gamers can hover for a while till they decide either good or evil or if they don't want to decide at all.

    Actually, considering that there were Angels in Diablo, other races would fit in well. I believe, somewhere in the history, the sorceresses had "ties" to elves.

    I like the idea. But, along with quality, I would also like the online game play to remain free. Oh! What I mean by quality is "bang for buck". D2 has decent quality. Nice graphics, decent story, but it still needs lot of work. Hmm? Mayhaps we shall see a fuller game in D3... If and when it comes out...
