Diablo 3 Necromancer pack rewards – Coming “soon”


There’s still no release date fo the Diablo 3 Necromancer pack although Blizzard has said it’s “coming to Sanctuary soon”. In an update, they have detailed the rewards for those jumping in with the Necro.

The Necromancer is coming to Sanctuary soon, but that’s not all!

Purchasing the Rise of the Necromancer pack gives you full access to the new class — including Necromancer-exclusive Set and Legendary items — plus two additional stash tabs and character slots.

Even better, you’ll get a new portrait frame, a pennant, wings, a banner shape, a banner sigil, and a Half-formed Golem pet! Check out the sweet loot you’ll be sporting as you raise the dead and restore the Balance, and get ready to join the ranks of the Priests of Rathma!

  1. “Half-formed Golem” AKA reskinned Goblin with significantly reduced animation quality to make it jittery. The wings are also a reskin.

    I dont understand how Blizzard thinks they can get away with reskinning existing assets and then charging hard cash for it.

    Last time I checked the necromancer was already in D2 so why the hell does he need to be added now through an expansion pack if he should have been in D3 from the very beginning along the paladin (aka Crusader).

    The Necromancer in D3 is nothing more than a class that re-uses all existing skills from various other classes and just uses different textures and slightly modified animations.

    How does a multi billion company like Blizzard justify this shit?

      They’re maximising profits. Minimising investment required to get the product out the door by cutting corners, which they know 99.9% of people who were interested in paying money for the product, will not fail to buy it because of perceived lack of quality. They’re quite happy to forego sales to the 0.1% of the market that are people like you.

      • What are you two guys talking about?

        Ok, so they re-textured some assets, most people will be buying the pack for the new class, stash tabs and character slots.

        And how can you claim the necromancer just “re-uses all existing skills”? The play style is very different.

        • I really enjoyed the necromancer in D2 so much my wife got jealous. The Witch Doctor was pretty much an update of the necro.

          I missed out on the wings before and the stash tabs & character slots sound worthwhile. how much is this going to cost?

    • Blizzard has changed a lot since Activi$ion took over. It’s why I stopped playing WoW.

    • You do understand people want the class, right? And that’s what people want to buy, right? You do get that, right, and the other stuff is literally just extra bonus theme stuff, right? Right? Blizzard (or any other company) doesn’t have to “justify” jack shit for you. They offer a good or service people want or need and will spend money on it as they see fit, so please, jam that self-righteous and judgemental ivory tower elitist morally superior socialist mentality right up your load hole.

    • That goblin looks so freaking awesome. The portrai frame look sweet too.

      No clue what you are whining about.

  2. I just don’t understand how they think statements like: “Even better, you’ll get a new portrait frame, a pennant, wings, a banner shape, a banner sigil, and a Half-formed Golem pet!” – can get anyone excited… From a company like blizzard one would expect they could at least bring out a bunch of new portrait frames, 20+ new wings and banner shapes etc. I mean jeez, these things take practically no time to develop whatsoever…

    God, I still love blizzard and most of what they do, but whenever I hear news about d3 I just think it’s from a different company or something… How did they mess this game up so badly?!?!

    • YOur logic: “I don’t like a thing, therefore I can’t understand why it exists and is happening.” Grow up. Other people/opinions exist and yours is not important.

    • I agree completely Ortheus.

      Guild wars 2 has way more cosmetic items available for its players and it only has a tiny fraction of the budget power the d3 team has.

      I am really surprised they do not have a more robust model for cosmetic items like in Overwatch, that system is monetized and its been really healthy for the financials of the game.

      Why are they not taking advantage of that for Diablo 3?

      They would be absolutely bonkers to not do it for the next Diablo installment. (if one happens…)

      • In Overwatch you spend far more time looking directly at other peoples characters, than you do in any Diablo game.

        • In D2 you actually spent time looking at the other characters. Equipment and level told about their power level and the skills they’re probably using. Call it a necessity for surviving PK-encounters.

      • Dont mention a game that didnt end up as supposed too. Guild wars 2 startet as an unique game with promisses to not be like other games with raids and stuff and thought about endless leveling system through expansions and ended up being the oposite. Loved it at beginning until they ruined it all

  3. Let the hater rage begin, if you do not like it, don’t buy it. Ask Mommy to give you money for a different toy.

  4. “two additional stash tabs and character slots.”

    that’s nice

    all the other stuff is useless “a banner shape, a banner sigil” LOL

    • Indeed, aesthetic features are rubbish/worthless as they don’t have an impact on gameplay.

      This game is a laugh. All they do is improve equipment all the time so that you can achieve higher levels over and over again. Where’s the playability in that? Rift after rift after rift…

    • Then don’t buy it. You won’t be missed. I am correct.

      • yess you are marty !

        You haters are complaining about the rifts and lack of endgame
        What was it that you did in D2 , doing baal / diablo / mephisto runs its basicly the same as rifts
        and for what there was also no real end game in D2 , ok there where a few idiots that did pvp crap but thats not end game , in fact pvp for games like this is uber stupid that’s why the D3 devs (almost) did not implement pvp in a great game like D3.

        I agree that there was a bit more to do in D2 , personally i liked the rune system with the rune words but that does not mean D3 is bad …
        Best thing in D3 vanilla was the AH , they can bring it back , it was fun

        But once again they listened to the wrong ppl (haters /idiots/spoiled brats/…) for that part of the game.

        And with a salty and nagging (over nothing) community like this there won’t be a new diablo game in years , why should they …

        • I’d rather say we “haters” are fighting for a D4 that’s more akin to the vision behind D2, as visible from the stepup made from D1, that caters for near the multitude of player types that D2 did. It shouldn’t be a recreation of D2 with better graphics, though, but rather a further, logical evolution of D2s gamedesign.

          And don’t forget that there’s VR around the corner, which opens up new ways for ARPGs to be played.

        • I’m naggingly in agreement with your nags but somehow really nagged by how many times you nag us with the word nagging, you nagging nagful nag.

  5. Well Im not a lover or a hater of Necropack and I will not buy it but if someone want to buy it let them do it. No reason to hate anybody and one thing is sure alle these f…… comments dont help. Yes there was a lot of good things in D2 runewords, but seems like dudes have forgot how boring they say it was to do baal, pindleskin, Diablo, Mephisto runs. I think D3 was a refreshment, and I miss also AH/diablogold, not real money AH. But a fact is that many of these mates who now want AH back was haters earlier, sometimes its look like that dudes complain about everything. If some want to buy Necro pack fine with me. Its only a game for gods sake. I actually agree with Erg

      Well … You could always start the pen&paper way : First imagining your character story (, doesn’t matter much, if innerhalve Sancuarios background or not – you could most always translate), looking through the skillsetup for which character would fit your imagination and trying out, how far the resulting build could go up the difficulties. If you could keep up your character imagination throughout gameplay, even better, as you’ve experienced the game under a differen setting in mind; with a new background practically building itself up while playing with the different perspective in mind.
