Diablo III: Magic Find, Monk Resources, Necromancer Return?
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

In recent posts on the Diablo III forums community manager Bashiok revealed new information about the upcoming action RPG. This time the discussion covered a variety of topics including magic find, Monk resources, the Necromancer's potential return, and champion monster difficulty.

On whether the Necromancer might return:
I've seen this said quite a bit. We're not specifically designing the witch doctor to leave room for a necromancer class. We're focusing on this game and making the classes fun. It's more of a case of, the witch doctor just isn't similar enough that it would prohibit us from adding a necromancer. Were one to be added in an expansion. Were an expansion to be made.

On the Monk resource system:
Yeah, we want to make sure there's one class that's just much much better than all the others at release. Then after a healthy amount of complaints we buff all the other classes and people think we're heroes.

It's game-dev psych 101 stuff.

On expansion classes:
Oh yeah, well it's like a rule that we can't make expansion classes fun.

And now I shall read a passage:

Laxamentum Prestolatio
Book 4; Passage 8; Line 13

And yae the onlookers felt the warmth of an expansion, and they cried out in cheerfulness. The masses moved hurriedly through the valley to greet it. Their voices unsilenced for their knowing was not of the creed.

May not any expansion classes meet the expectations of the whole
May not any onlooker feel great joy in their playing
