YOUR SORC CAN HAVE A SWORD AND SHIELD
YOUR PALADIN CAN USE A BATTLESTAFF
there is no.. running around "casting light magic" and attacking with "light armor"
this isnt a gay fantasy game like wow or many previous mmo's..
its the diablo franchise.. a dark, dreary, blood and guts, slaughtering hordes of monsters in SECONDS with 8 dudes and running at fast paces through swarms of beasts...
there is no watch and play...
you make a character based on the synergies sure.. but you can create anything you want..
there will be a sorc based character and a paladin based character...
it seems like the witchdoctor is half necro half druid.. so im not sure the expansion will unleash a druid like character
and im tired of typing.
did you ever play Diablo or Diablo 2?
I dont think Diablo 3 will feature a sorceress in heavy plate and sword shield because you want to.
and I don't think Diablo3 is going to be carbon copy Diablo 2, it will be more refined, with better options and tighter abilities on the classes making it balanced.
I kinda dont want ethereal items to come back in Diablo 3, i would be ****ing PISSED to get a windforce ethereal, although it would do mad **** damage, it would still break... (no slots)
but perhaps they will have skills like WoW, engineering and **** which can add to this to make you more pro then the next archer, by playing enough to have that ethereal wind force with zod rune...
