A: Not only will there be more than three sockets per item, but we will also have socketable magic, rare, and unique items. There will also be some new, exciting socketing options that we will discuss in more detail at a later date.
Q: Describe some of the new class specific items?
A: We are really excited about all of the new class-specific items. The Barbarian will get new helms. The Paladin will get new shields. The Amazon will get new gloves. The Sorceress will get orbs to carry instead of a weapon. The Necromancer will get shrunken heads and other totems to carry instead of a shield. The Druid will get various animal pelts for helmets. Finally, the Assassin will get some hand-to-hand weapons for her martial arts.
Q: When you take your Diablo II character into an expansion game, is your character permanently converted?
Yes he is. Because they may pick up expansion-only items. You will have to convert your character prior to playing, however, so you'll know exactly what you're getting into.
