    whaa? no necro? GREAT! no more boner jokes...

    no seriously, it's a shame there's no necro cuz it was a popular (cookie cutter) class. and i'll miss the party friendly spells. They just better bring back the rogue or the 'zon.

    Ehh, the story did say they weren't bringing back any old characters except the barbarian :sigh:

    I'm curious now though, there's got to be your standard archer, mage, warrior archetypes though right?

    they'll bring them back but with new identities I guess. like, the Pally will be a knight, and the sorceress will be called a mage. archers might be elves, that sort of thing. They're basically doing a total character redesign i imagine. Mostly cool because we'll get a new twist on the game, but it's going to upset ALOT of people

    if a well developed character is the excuse not to bring the old classes, why they brought the barbarian back? It was my fav.

    But i agree with dark reaper and sotu1. I think they will be back with other names.

    win. seriously.

    That "Necro's choice/wow gayness" kid is going to bust a nut when he hears this. I can clearly see the kid in dark eyeliner pushing his keyboard through the monitor.

    Meh, whatever, always hated necros. Zons and sorcs though.... their replacements had better kick some serious ass.

    I hope that the new 3 classes are all hybrid classes that will encourage people to play in a more creative and imaginative way rather then meat in the front and damage in the back.

    aww dammit. the necro was always my fav, even when he was under powered. my first character way back in 2000 was a necro and didn't even try out the specialty classes till last year (ie. spearazons, boners, hammerdins, etc). I did very much like my zoo keeper though and back before the skill synergies having 30-odd skeletons running around on screen was a hoot (or the hacked items with 35 fire golems burning their way through everything)

    perhaps the necro was too dark for the 'watercolours and kittens' art style.

    Nooooooooooooooooooo!
    The necro was my favourite class :(
    You could summon your army of skeleton mages, and just spam the hell out of enemies with bone bolt :(

    No problem here with the previous classes returning. It's more exciting to have new classes. The Witch Doctor seems pretty much a knock-off of the Necro to me. As someone else already said there are only so many variations-on-a-theme they can do. The "new" classes have to have the basic. Ranged class, heal/aura class, mage at lease in some form.
