sigh.so diablo you are gonna be on consoles. thats cool, for kids.. but what about directx11? after 10+years of d2 we deserve best—
It could be that some newer features are helpful and we do take advantage, but right now we’re running entirely in DX9.—Diablo
If Arcane Power regen is always growing but max stays at 100, will you be able to cast nonstop at some point due to huge regen?—Grug
There’s no current way to affect regen or cap. It may stay that way. But yes, if regen could be affected the cap would be too.—Diablo
What about the other resources, Fury and Spirit? Can the generation of those be increased? If not, what does Willpower do?—Grug
Excellent question! One we can’t answer just yet. Base stats are going through some re-scrutinizing at the moment.—Diablo
What type of additional skills are you exploring for the Demon Hunter?—DonGuillotine
It’s a bit early to discuss any additional skills as they’re all in early concept/design (beyond those shown at BlizzCon).—Diablo
Do all of the DH’s traps need to be stepped on our breached or will there be some that target monsters like the Assassin’s sentries?—Scyberdragon
She doesn’t have an arsenal of traps per se, it’s the idea of time spent manufacturing trinkets and gadgets to kill demons.—Diablo
Either the Blizzcon info is already out of date, or @Diablo whiffed on the Arcane Power question, since at least 3 Wizard traits boost Arcane Power regeneration: Arcane Channeling, Energy Reserves, and Drain Power.
The question of moar Demon Hunter skills is being regularly kicked around in , and additional traps are a common suggestion. After all, Spike Trap and Shock Spike are pretty much, “stand on me and I will grind off your feet.” Effective, but only on very slow or stupidly-stationary enemies. Since the DH’s traps seem to be more mechanical or explosive than elemental, options like a crossbow turret or a grenade dispenser seem viable.
I have no idea if that’s what @Diablo was suggesting with that confusing last reply, though. Was it meant as a lore-skewing way to say “No.” that the DH won’t have any traps that are auto-targeting?
