Diablo II Expansion Interview
1:20 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
A reader pointed us towards this interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Senior Producer Bill Roper, dealing with the upcoming Diablo II Expansion. This Q&A posted by the curiously-named DiabloHappy.com covers many details of this upcoming expansion which will be of interest to veteran players of the original, including details on the two new character classes to be introduced: the Druid and the Assassin.
Here's an excerpt:
DH: What is your favorite new skill for the Druid or Assassin? Blizzard certainly does nothing halfway, and we expect this expansion to be just as impressive as the original. Be sure and check out the rest of the preview for more details; the Expansion is expected to be released in the first half of 2001.
A. My favorite Druid spell is Dire Wolf. Running around as a half-man / half-wolf creature and attacking the denizens of Diablo and Baal with razor sharp claws is very fun. When you add in a pack of summoned wolves following you around, it is an amazingly fun experience.
In regards to the Assassin, we have recently added the concept of linked martial arts skills that makes playing her incredibly different than any other character class. The basic concept is that you have one set of skills that can be used to set-up or charge-up the character’s martial arts abilities. Then a second set of finishing moves can be used to release that charge.
