GameFan has cleverly wrapped a new Diablo II preview within the point of view of a man with a terminal addiction to Diablo. As members of the same self-help group, we will all politely nod our heads and look sad as we wait our turn to talk. Here's what the addict had to say about one of the most exciting new character classes in Diablo II, the Necromancer:
Diablo II's necromancer boasts three main skill sets--curses, poison and bone spells, and summoning. This summoning ability sets the necromancer apart from the other classes, as he's able to summon monsters to fight on his behalf. With high-level summoning skills, the necromancer becomes more of a babysitter and treasure collector than an adventurer does; his minions do all of the work for him. All he need do is sit back and pick up the treasure; it's really something to behold.
Now that the group hug is over, it's time to anxiously sit and wait for Diablo II to be released. Though the PC version is nearly out, Blizzard has said the Mac build won't be released till Quarter 3. We're sure Blizzard will have something interesting to show us at next month's Macworld New York.
