    I agree, if there were things that we wouldn't immediately find out through playing that'd be awesome.

    Oh man, I forgot all about those.

    I can see, what you see not.
    Vision milky, then eyes rot.
    When you turn, they will be gone.
    Whispering their hidden song.
    Then you see what cannot be!
    Shadows move where light should be.
    Out of darkness, out of mind.
    Cast down into the halls of the blind.

    A truly cornerstone moment in gaming, I think.

    Agreed, Kaeros. It's perhaps one of the best, creepiest, and most immersive moments in Diablo lore.

    It seemed like Gloams are the inheritor of the Hidden's cloak ability, but Gloams are scary for other reasons.

    I'll 3rd that motion. They were always my favorite monsters in D1. I liked overlords too; just so solid and implacable and relentless, and they had that lovely grunting sound when you turned them into pin cushions. They were kind of recreated by Urdurs, and the base model was used for the butcher/smith/hellforge hammer guy, so they're probably gone as a base monster type.

    I'm glad to see upgraded goatmen in D3. They were among my d1 favorites, with that splatting hit sound and the great death gurgle. They were nowhere near as much fun in d2.

    I also missed the various knights from D1. I played a D2 mod at one point that moved those guys in, and they were very impressive even in the d2 world. Their sharply colored armor and war-like stances were much more intimidating than the bestial D2 minotaurs.

    Re: Bring Back The Hidden

    The Overlords\Butcher styled deamons with plumpy body, huge mittens and ponty ears\horns sure looked very nice.
    Chaos lords with lightning throw and fast melee attack, looked like Diablo on a diet but were also cool.
    The advocates/evil mages were annoying, yet fun to watch 'em dying.
    The devilkin from D1 not D2 were purdy too.
    Would be nice if these make a return.

    Re: Bring Back The Hidden

    I'll be pleased if we have monsters that attack with even a smidge of tactics. Just something other then an all out rush at your character or standing and firing.

    Stuff like luring you into a trap with a weaker monster or different monsters working together.

    Re: Bring Back The Hidden

    My favorite monsters from DII were the frog-like things that were a relatively rare spawn. Saw variations of them mostly in the jungle and in the Palace cellar. Their sounds and death animations just nailed it for me.

    Also a big fan of the spiders.

    Death Knights, complete with death animation and sounds.

    and the spitting death acid dogs. I had a great love/hate relationship with them.

    Re: Bring Back The Hidden

    I was happy to see those buffalo like things in D3 movie, one of which landed a charge attack from almost off the screen. Those charging rhino-men in the D1 caves were a terror for sorcs and rogues, not just for their accurate and long range charge, but for the rapid goring attack they'd unleash after they nailed you. There was nothing in D2 that was a danger from a distance, other than melee attackers, and even they were pretty weak. (other than the early days of msle, of course.)

    Nice when there are enemies that keep you on your toes, even when they're not in melee range.

    LOL Maybe a Arrow shape monster attack? Standing your ground and pulling you spear as a defence to charge attack? Smart monster can be a really cool idea.

    One thing is for sure, they should NOT remade Dolls.

    Re: Bring Back The Hidden

    Hehe there were so many great monsters in Diablo 1 I would die to see with modern day graphics!

    - Acid hounds
    - Overlords
    - HIDDEN!!
    - Knights (coolest death animation)
    - Goatmen (I like their sounds and the way they spin around when taking damage!)

    Many of the monsters really felt tough in Diablo 1. Like their animation, sound effects and so on. Not so much on Diablo 2. I hope that the numerous links to Diablo 1 on the official page could hint that they've really taken in the critics from Diablo 2.

    In Diablo 1 you had to use tactics with monsters like Acid hounds and rhino-men. You had to act clever instead of pure supremacy based on items/number of hours played. I'm satisfied that there was many different monsters in the gameplay demo, the charging monsters, cultists, skeletons with shields, and monsters getting their weapons stuck in the ground if you dodge them. Those really add to the gameplay and ease off the repetitiveness.

    As far as hidden goes:

    Signed. Bring back the hidden.
    In fact, Bring back the D1 AI please.

    Dear god NO!!! I used to have nightmares of trying to collect my sorc's gear after getting mowed down by a bunch of acid hounds and having a room full of acid pools to manuver through :(

    Hidden were awesome! I hope they'll be back in D3, as well as Advocates (I still love the name Blizzard had given to these guys) and D1 styled Knights. :punk:

    They could have some of those witchdoctors from Act 3 maybe throw out dolls that would head straight for you. Would make me red in the head every time I saw those 2 little dudes standing untop of each other :).

    Re: Bring Back The Hidden

    Hidden are by far the coolest creature to ever grace a Diablo game...hands down.


    As far as monsters keeping you on your toes, I really liked the concept of Vipers in D2, from valley of the snakes. I wouldn't mind seeing those back, with maybe a buffed up charge attack. Groups of those could play HELL on your faster hit recovery.
