Fantastic News! To not only have heard that the Necromancer class from Diablo II has been resurrected as the new class for the Rise of the Necromancer pack coming soon to Diablo III, but Beta testing has now started on for those lucky enough to get an invite. I don’t know about you, but this is one class I can’t wait to get my hands on (as it was my favourite in Diablo II), the preview animations that Blizzard have released so far will have you grabbing for your dusty tomes of the dead and finding a nice dark corner to wait out the release date, but we shouldn’t be waiting to long as Blizzard still plan for a 2017 release.
Fans of the old class will be happy to know that Blizzard will be adding in a male and female character, who will be different from the original Diablo II class, and from Xul in Heroes of the Storm, the class will also feature its own tier set and legendaries and best of all, its own class specific scythe just to give you that true reaper of the dead feel.
For now I’ll leave you with the announcement trailer for Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer – enjoy!
