Diablo® III

A New Class Before Launch?

How do people even come up with this? A 6th character, largely untested, to be announced right before release date? Asinine.

Not plausible for a 6th, you think that could be kept a secret and not noticed in the data dumpster diving already done?

It's Imperius and the scene of his fight with Tyrael, we all know that, we're just waiting to see what exactly happens.

as you can see its 1 per week untill launch... the last week is for people that missed out on previous weeks, they've already announced this. Adding a new class a week before release seems extreme and I doubt that is the case.

I think it might be a video show casing the angels for the first time showing us a 3rd person perspective of whats currently happening in the heavens while the falling star arrives to Sanctuary... like a lore video to introduce them properly

Not a sixth class per se, but yes in the full version Diablo is a playable character. When playing as Diablo the game is more like a Japanese-style dating sim. It's pretty fun. I think people are really going to enjoy it. You can buy chocolates and flowers and things for your dates on the RMAH.

i think the last slot is reserved so that people who missed a chance to get a sigil for any of the other classes before will have a chance to do so during that week.

Best post I've ever seen.

To all saying the class would be "untested": Public beta is only 13 levels with a mere handful of spells and runes. We are here more for stress testing than for testing out all the bugs and balance. Balance, of all things, is going to be drastically different between level 13 and level 60.

After playing the crap outa median, im hoping blizzard devs played it too and they are adding uber challenges like in median. A new class would be ok but it would have to be a very generic class cause keeping class specific gear and related functions out of the beta would be hard. And testing the class separately along the beta updates would take more time than the surprise is worth. Im hoping Ubers but expecting wallpapers.

I hope the big reveal is animating the monks attacks instead of sheathing all weapons.

Sure would like to use that legendary I may get in the future instead of the same fists as level 1

There will be five heroes in the game for you to play, come May 15. Those will be the five hero classes that you've seen, and played, and that we've been developing for years. There will not be a sixth, secret class sprung on you in the next month.

I promise.

If I had to guess, I would say that it could be the missing content from the game guide site. Like the act information and unique/set armor/weapon information.

So...you're saying there's a chance!

LOL

Seems reckless to throw in an entirely new class without beta testing it. Maybe if they tested it internally for the past several months but that seems reeaaaally unlikely.

My guess would be info on bosses, pvp or gameworld. Who knows.

I'd love to see another class thrown in the mix but seriously doubt its gonna happen at this point.

Thank you for clearing that up, 'cause it always sounded like a bunch of BS to me.
