How much will the HotS necro affect the design of the D3:RoS version?

Also if the Necro will get a comprehensive pet command interface, how easily can that be added to every other class (even if it is just to command the Templar!)
I have a very important question about Necromancer:
When Flail of the Ascended and Shield Bash will be fixed?
Will the Necromancer have its own SET DUNGEONS?
Highly Rated
If in a party someone has the necro pack and another one doesn't have the necro pack, how is influenced the partnership between these persons (ex: trade of specific items for necro; affixes for the cube; etc)?
Thank you!

1) How much of the Diablo 2 necromancer will there be in the new Diablo 3 necromancer?

2) Is Enigma coming back in some way, shape, or form?

3) What is the motivation behind bringing back the necromancer over the druid? Or at all for that matter.

4) Are my childhood memories going to be crushed or rush back in vivid color?

Thanks! I'm very much looking forward to playing necro again.
Hello
Will you return revive ability and Who will have more pets witch doctor or Necro ? ? And how much money will be Necromancer ?
Will you return Cursed skills ?!?
will the two stash tabs from the pack increase our maximum from 10 to 12 stash tabs? if so, why are we not awarded an 11th stash tab this season to prepare for the 3rd page of tabs? if not, then will we simply get dud overwritten stash tabs, still maxed at 10?
You said that Necromancer and Witch Docter will be completely different characters.
How will Gargantuan and Golem be different then?
Are there more differences between Skeleton and Fetish other than that Skeleton has targeted charging?
Necromancer's 'Iron Maiden' is one of the only two skills that are related to Thorns. Will Necromancer have another Thorns related skills or items in Diablo 3 as well?

1) How much will the necromancer DLC pack cost, especially in light of the D3/ROS battle chest costing $20 when on sale?

2) Do you plan other character pack(s) in the future, such as the Druid that was mentioned at Blizzcon?

3) What is the estimated release date?

4) Is it fair to assume that the DLC is a stop gap measure before you announce Diablo 4 at Blizzcon 2018?

5) Are you still only planning 1 Necromancer class set at release?

6) Will there be Necromancer set dungeon(s)?

7) Do you anticipate both DPS and zDPS Necromancer builds?

8) Do you anticipate that the Necromancer will be part of the group meta for greater rifts?

9) Could you please release a youtube video showing updated Necromancer gameplay to show off your progress and the skills that have been developed?

10) How effective will Necromancer be relative to damaging greater rift guardians if no corpses remain?

It will work exactly like the Crusader works now. If you don't have it you can still play with someone who does. You will sometimes even get Necro loot (smart loot is not 100%) that you can give to a friend who is playing a necro.
How will all of the corpse-based skills on the Necromancer actually work since critical hits usually destroy corpses?
Sorry you are broadcasting on FaceBook. I refuse to use these "free" services that make $Billions by selling subscriber click trails, including secure passwords, to anyone that pays for them. (including hackers and malware curmudgeons)
Your first broadcast was also linked to a YouTube feed that would have been OK, except that it was listed as Mature Content, so it required a Google login, which is worse at distributing secure information to use their "free" service than FaceBook.
We have seen some of the bone skills from the D2 Poison & Bone skill tree. Will we see any of the poison skills, or will that aspect of the Necromancer be removed to more clearly define them from the Witch Doctor?

That would piss me off to get loot for another class I don't own.Hope that's not true.
