    Diablo 1 spell books for D3

    Have these books brought back to teach characters spells, only make them extremely rare and only give light simple spells.
    (spells that would be useless in battle and basically have little effect on gameplay)

    Like:
    Book of identify
    Book of Town Portal (realllly rare)
    Book of summon (summons weak creatures from the netherealms)
    Book of telekinesis (instantly picks up a weapon from any distance and put it in your inv/bag)


    Those are only examples!
    Keep in mind these would be very rare drops and would make the rare player feel unique.

    For the classes that don't use mana then like diablo 1, all classes could use spells as long as they were wearing an item that gave the hero mana.
    But if these are minimal spells, then we could either not use mana at all or use health as a substitute/sacrifice to cast such a spell.

    Also to the players that never played Diablo 1:
    There was no skill tree. Spells/skills were gained via Books.
    (Right click the book you get a new permanent spell/skill and the book disappears)

    Oh and they would keep skill trees in like normal.
    These books would just be rare additional spells that don't go maybe secluded down the bottom of the skill tree..

    I would love to find some way for books to come back to D3, but I don't think they fit (at least not if D3's system is like D2). My guess is that D3's skill system may be different enough from D2's to allow some limited books, which is just what you wanted anyway. :thumbsup:
