The destiny of Diablo series continues to develop. Even though the third release faced with a good share of criticism which was connected with the franchise losing its original atmosphere ad turning into WoW clone, the new Diablo 3 Necromancer build offers you something fresh. So let’s take a look.
New Diablo 3 Rise of The Necromancer Reveal
For some time already Blizzard has been teasing Diablo fans with the new patch so to speak which will include another class known as Necromancer. The developers haven’t revealed any reliable information on when to expect this release. All they say is that Necromancer will come during 2017. Most positive expectations are that Blizzard will release it this summer while other sources assume that we should expect it in December.
It’s a shame to see how the legendary series is dying. Really, Blizzard has taken too much time to resurrect the franchise after Diablo 2 success. After they had released Diablo 3 they having been trying to build numerous patches which was a long-term process again. The latest patch came in 2013! Now that 4 years have passed they’re ready to release one new class only? Such a policy is odd because even if they will release Necromancer and new characters it doesn’t make much sense because it won’t make the plot of the game any different. It’s a fun to try a new character but it won’t make the game itself as epic as the previous part.
New Skills and Features
As we know from official sources Necromancer is a new playable class. There will be two types of them which are male and female types. There’s some comparison of Necromancer and Which Doctor but they’re different. The exact skills of this class are to be revealed yet. Nevertheless, Blizzard says that Necromancer will come with dark skills which are related to blood, bones and everything that dark magic deals with. This class is of more philosophical and pragmatic type so we expect more passive skills rather than active ones. Ability to spell curses and bring dead ones back to life is said to return.
Judging from what we know about Necromancer’s skills it’s safe to say that Necromancer in Diablo 3 will focus on meditative type of game which means that you won’t be the centre of the battles. Corpse Explosion is something that Blizzard teases fans with and we hope that they will add this sill to the new gameplay. If you want to have an army of zombies you’re likely to be given such an opportunity which means that the good old Necromancer will return with new design.
Diablo 3 Necromancer Expansion Details
The upcoming expansion will be a part of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. It will be released as Rise of the Necromancer pack. To play this version of the game you still need to own Diablo III and Reaper of Souls. In addition with new characters you will have some nice features. Here they’re:
- 2 more character slots
- 2 more stash tabs
- A pet
- A portrait
- Banner sigil
If you expect Diablo 3 for Xbox 360 with Necromancer release you’ll be disappointed. Blizzard said 2 years ago that they weren’t going to release patches for 360 and PS3 which means that Necromancer will be for next-gen consoles only.
So if you’re already eager to see what’s coming here’s a video for you.
