Default D2 Classes like the NEcromancer "Could Return"

http://www.joystiq.com/2008/08/08/di...-could-return/

the article says it all. blizzard has apparently left room for the return of classes like the necromancer, even though we have a witch doctor now. seems pretty interesting to me. i wonder how they would differentiate the two classes though, since they seem to have crossed over or recreated some of the necromancer's skills for the doctor.

Screw that. I'd rather 5 unique classes then 10 who are similar. We don't need a Necro and a Witch Doctor who both uses curses and undead.

D3 should have:

Barbarian
Witch Doctor
(insert mage character, like Sorceress)
(insert range character, like Amazon)
(insert new, different class)

And the expansion should be two more new classes.

Agreed. Too many games are using nostagia as a lazy way to appeal to the old fans. New is better (im saying this for SC2 as well).

Well he did say that they felt the Necromancer was "done" -- basically that he's finished, and they don't really want to recreate him because, really, what else is there to do with a necromancer? It's difficult to rework something that relied on minions and curses while still keeping it the same basic class.

I find it really cool though they've confirmed an expansion this early in the game.

Exactly. Was there ever any question that there'd be an expansion? Haha.

Kinda sucky since the two classes will bevery alike..Unless they give the necro some new stuff but they'll need some heavy creativity since, like the article said, the char is done..They could make the expansion get some old classes though..like the paladin..

Bringing back the Paladin would be the same as bringing back the Necro. We're trying to make Diablo 3, not Diablo 2 with better graphics. I'm still not entirely comfortable with the Barbarian comming back, but I can understand why. Hopefully the last 3 classes to be revealed will be new. A new mage and new ranged are welcome. And if they do bring back old classes, they should be hybrids, like the Witch Doctor is a Necro/Druid hybrid. I suggested a Assassin/Paladin hybrid in this thread:
http://www.blizzforums.com/showthread.php?t=18593

New = good.
Different = good.
Some stuff can't change. Skills like Blizzard and Chain Lightning will remain, that can't be helped. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

I loved the Necromancer more than anything, but it has been replaced with something new, and that is for the best.

We've already got the Barbarian, and honestly, I would rather see a different, new class in it's place anyway.

At the same time though it would be pretty awesome to play a Necro in diablo 3 I'd pay 30 bucks for an expansion just with the classes from Diablo 2 added to the game. Hell stick them on their own servers if you want.

Personally I'd rather see an Assassin/Amazon hybrid, combining ranged combat with traps.

I'd like to see the paladin make a complete return, personally. Though heavily modified and changed, like a paladin from a different holy sect -- or from a not so holy sect when they realized how easy it was that they were corrupted the first time.

Of course I'd really love to see the Druid make a triumphant return, with fully reworked, new, different skills, while still maintaining the coolness fo shapeshifting into a freaking werewolf or something.

In D3 can you imagine? Playing a druid, shift into a wereform shape, then start tearing enemies apart with your mouth?!

You're getting me all excited ^^

'Bout the classes: as long as theyre unique and have a probable connection to the lore, im fine with it. I thought this was very well done in D2 (even the LoD classes), and i can only hope for D3.

They shouldn't bring back the paladin per se, but a knight/chivalric character is a must.
