'Diablo was defeated, and for a time it seemed we were at peace. But it was not to be.'

'Diablo 3's about epic heroes - and there's a new villain in the fallen angel of wisdom.'

'A new hero, the Crusader.'

'It's an age of peace. There's a problem though! It's the Black Soulstone. It's hidden in sanctuary,but Maltheal, the Angel of Death returns'

Christian Lichtner, art director Diablo "This is a darker expansion."

More as it comes!

Westmarch is the setting, and it takes influence from Gothic western locations. It's more medieval.

Within Westmarch is the story of a fallen city.

The Crusader is a mid-range melee character. Linked to the Paladin of D2.

A Spartan ethos with the power of a modern tank. They've got crusader shields, and flails. They can get right up in the midst and crack skulls. A war machine made human.

lvl cap to 70.

New end game modes.

Playable at gamescom(god I wish I was there)

Paragon 2.0 - there are three big changes. It's now account wide, so all your characters will benefit. And there's no longer a cap.

Loot Runs are 15-20 minutes dungeons that are completely randomised.

And the endgame is being rethought completely. Something for everyone once you're done with the story.

And there's enchanting, allowing you to reroll an affix in a rare of legendary item.

A new artisan in Reaper of Souls can transmogrify your items - so you don't have to sacrifice your look for more power.

Looks to me like they took the criticisms of the first game to heart. Darker theme, more choices and hopefully a fun game.

Cautiously optimistic that this game will actually be the D3 I expected.

I feel sorry for the people who hit p100 on 5 toons. Leveling never ends!

Edit : Just watched the vid's. Oh yeah, baby!!!

I've confirmed with Lylirra that Paragon levels give you 'Paragon Points' which can be spent on various stats like STR/VIT/DEX/INT, movement speed, crit chance, etc.

Adds a lot of customisation because you can have your lvl 100 para hero but add those 100 points to another hero.

Or make say an uber quick farming hero that can kill an act easily and just buff the crap out of it's movement speed.

1 act, 1 class, new endgame stuff, improved loot, no PvP (for now) - it could just be me but it feels somewhat light on new content to justify paying $40 USD / $45 AUD.

Looks awesome, but I was kinda expecting 2 new classes since we got the assassin and druid in LoD. Crusader's theme also sorta overlaps with the Monk class; if they're just gonna have one new class, it should've been a bit more exotic.

Remember they would want something for Blizzcon, so everything revealed so far doesn't mean its everything that comes.

Not confirming anything, just something we can hope for.

We want to implement a lot of the new systems and features in a pre-expansion patch for free. That should include Paragon 2.0, Loot 2.0, Loot Runs, and Nephalem Trials. For now, you'll need to purchase the expansion to play as the Crusader, explore Act V, unlock the Mystic, and level up to 70. These details may change as development moves along, but we want some of the core gameplay improvements to be available for everyone.
