A battlemage. Can use certain spells, but can wield light weapons, and use light armor.

The characters must be split between ranged(archers), tanks(barbarian obviously), mage(with spells), hybrid(like battlemage), and another either summoner or something similar at least.

I thought in Diablo 2, they kinda made the sorceress kinda like a battle mage of sorts, except the skills didnt really reflect it

the unique Mage Plate was alright, (which was a light plate armor) but I wouldnt use it over my Arkaine Valor

but now I think of it, you could wear anything on anyone... right?

ah good times though, game was pro

DEAR everyone talking about halfmagetypes.. and casting and wielding weapons still:





THIS ISNT F**KING WOW!!!!

ITS DIABLO

YOU CAN USE ANY ITEM SO LONG AS YOUR STR SAYS SO

YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE ANY CHARACTER TO DO ANYTHING

THE ONLY THING THAT IS CHAR SPECIFIC IS DUAL WIELDING

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...

How about a monk class, no weapons just lightning fast awesomeness. Okay maybe give him like "gloves" or something.

I want to see some Troglodytes, Mongoloids, or perhaps some Neandrathals.
