Character Previews from Jay Wilson


IGN had the bright idea of using their private interview time with Jay Wilson, during the media event last week, to have him give short summaries of each of the five character classes in Diablo III. They don’t seem to have told Jay about this in advance though, so his answers are clearly off the cuff and not as smooth as they would be if delivered at something like a Blizzcon panel.

There’s no new info in them, just general class play and plot info, but IGN did stick in some gameplay footage to spice up the visuals. You can see all five embedded in this post; here’s the Barbarian; click through to view the rest in alphabetical order.

  1. Jay has to be one of the hardest people to understand.   He really needs to speak up.

  2. Yeah, it’s kinda refreshing to hear descriptions of the chars that weren’t rehearsed ahead of time. 

    Also: in b4 “NOT NEW INFOZ!!11!11!”

  3. all i heard was uhh, uhhh, err, uhhh, uhh, uh.

  4. Use of “um” or “eh” count: 29

  5. You guys act like there aren’t tons of people that talk like that… doesn’t make it any less annoying but it’s common thing sadly…

  6. he said barbarian near the end of the monk video!! :]

  7. I heard him fine after I raised the volume a little bit.

    Jay explained everything really well, and I actually didn’t know some of the backstory he gave for the Wizard, so that was really fun to hear.

    I’m going to have difficulty choosing a class..  before I was all like: I AM SO MONK, then I WAS SO DEMON HUNTER, but now, I am going to struggle.

  9. I won’t be playing the Monk because he looks like some homeless white dude you would see at Venice Beach.

  10. Looked great to me.

  11. You know, the Monk would be more flavour-y if his defensive abilities generated Spirit, which he’d then use to make devastating attacks… and then after he’d be more vulnerable somehow…
    But i see how that would be way harder to implement in a way that works.
     

  12. Damn internet failing…

    But maybe my ISP was making a point about D3’s DRM….

     

  13. The new strafe skill and smoke screen escape of the DH was news to me.
