I disagree with your descriptions of the classes, particularly of those of the Wizard and the Witch Doctor. Regarding the 'negativity' you've attached to the latter, I don't see them. Rather, I think the personality breakdown for the three classes thus far are:

Barbarian - physical, savage, noble, spiritual, battle-worn

Wizard - arrogant, disrespectful, prodigy, reckless

Witch Doctor - mysterious, eccentric, creepy, exotic


Actually, it is the Wizard that is the most negatively viewed class in-world, as can be seen/heard from its video along with its journal entry.

I'm calling bullshit. The only negativity I've seen towards the Witch Doctor on any site I've visited (here, diablofans.net, diii.com, battlenet forums, etc.) is that
a) people are angry they lost the Necro, even though they still like the WD, and
b) that his "Firebats" spell has bad graphics

This is just you complaining. Not the community.

Maybe he'll have some good voice acting who knows.

Erm, correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the OP in said thread mention that he isn't expecting the Witch Doctor to be some whacky, ganja-addled nutjob? Even the thread's respondents don't hold such a view.

I'm expecting the exact same motif that blizzard gave trolls in warcraft -

Cracked out, herb smokin', head-shrinkin' cannibals.

And I'll be incredibly pleased if this is the case with the D3 witchdoctor.

Comic Relief = awesome.

Witch Doctor does seem a bit irksome.

I don't feel quite as comfortable playing him as a Paladin, he just doesn't have much of a 'hero' vibe to him.

The art doesn't make him too appealing also for some reason, can't quite pin point why. Maybe it's the frailty of the character or the unfamiliarity with that kind of persona.

Maybe if his mask were smaller, he were more upright and maybe a bit stronger (as in, he's young, he is actually in a position to fight this evil, not some crazy old man).

I like his spells though, plague of frogs looks like fun, he'll probably be the first character I'll try just because he's so weird.

Disagree, search diii.com once again and btw. wd is more like druid than necro from playstyle.

Look at last added screenshots with she-wd you get hullahoop, hawaii, aloha, samba, hurray no more diablo climat feelings from wd.
My vote go for: "Kill this bastard and burn him so he will never rise again".

Way to Necro the thead. Cause we just love it when you do that. Not.

I know it's more like the Druid. But they're still upset they lost the Necro because the WD uses dead things.

You get that because you're uninformed and have no idea what a Witch Doctor really is. All you see are fern skirts. There are no Witch Doctors in any Hawaiian mythos. It comes from Africa and was brought to South America.

Why? Because you can't tell the difference between a hula skirt and a loin cloth?
