Through the kind auspices of Blizzard PR, we’ve secured a 1-on-1, 30-minute phone interview with D3 Lead Designer Jay Wilson, on Tuesday, October 6th. Yes, that’s next week. This is not the same interview for which MD has been , though I’m cannibalizing those threads for topics to discuss with Jay.
I’ve got a fair number of questions ready to go, but with a whole half hour (compare to this 15 minute interview from Blizzcon) I should have time to ask Jay about quite a few issues, which is where you guys come in. Submit your questions for Jay in this thread, and I’ll pick the best ones and pose them directly to the Diablo 3 Lead Designer, Tuesday morning. Click through to see some of the issues I’m going to bring up, and add your ideas in the comments.
Jay’s knowledgeable about everything in the game, but Blizzard has asked us to specialize our questions for this one. So I’m primarily going to be asking about gameplay, characters, skills, etc. Not so much about lore, story, art, etc. (MD will surely cover those issues in great detail in his upcoming email interview.) I’ve got a bunch of good Monk questions, mostly taken from the aforementioned threads,and I’ll definitely be asking about the non-mana resources, party play interactions, char build variety, and higher level skills.
Additional questions in any of those areas are welcome. I’d also like to ask some questions about items, character customization, and end game/PvP design theories. Questions on those issues, and anything else you’re dying to know, can be added to this post. Fire away, and get your comment in by Monday night, so I’ve got time to look them over before the interview.
