    Okay so I'm sure there will be complaining about the templar because of the shoulders, but when you see him next to the barb, the entire outfit actually looks fairly reasonable. And there's some new monster types and areas in Act 1 that haven't shown up in video yet, as well.

    if i may ask.... are these characters that would show up in an expansion or would they be different types of mercenaries to help you out?

    They look like merc types, with skill trees. They look almost exactly the same as the system in D2. :(

    Ummmm, what? After saying something that sounds so ignorant, you really need to elaborate.

    Ummm, they look similar to me?

    Differences: You can now equip jewelry and select their skills?
    I'm waiting to hear more. I would hope there'd be more to it. I didn't really like them in D2, so the odds of me liking them now is pretty slim.

    Looks very interesting, you get to choose their skills I like that, was hoping for more equipment slots though!

    Well let's see. They now have at least 12 skills to choose from. These skills level up. You can equip jewellery now. There is a system that unlocks....more armor slots? More skills? You can see that it unlocks at level 25.

    Apart from the fact that they are Mercs, that's where the similarities end.

    Just my kneejerk reaction. I'll wait to hear more, and in the meantime, I'm gathering info for the wiki.

    Well, if this is real, I'm liking what I'm seeing. Someone left his laptop unguarded for a second because this seems like a ?CON videofeature to unfold.

    I think the followers have plenty of itemslots and the part where they can have skills/traits is endlessly cool to.
    I'm going for a Templartank! All defense so I'll back him up with an all out offense :)

    Sorry, but what do you expect from a mercernary? to grant you a wish every 30 lvl ? you pay them to fight for you and now you have more control of them..:D

    Did you miss the kneejerk part of kneejerk reaction? :p

    Is this a new area? I believe it is.

    Hard to say if it's a new area, as it's outside, and a lot of outdoors look the same. But there were areas shown in the scoundrel part that looked swampy. Kinda like Act 3 in D2

    Looks great! I was basically hoping for D2 mercs with improved AI and a skill tree, and at least one of those is clear from the video. Interestingly, at least two of the followers seem to have skills that affect gold or drops in some way (Scoundrel has Scavenge, Rain of Gold and Black Market, for instance): maybe this is why Blizzard removed such traits from the player classes? Seems like a good decision - that way those stats are influenced more by out followers rather than our characters, and the former are probably easier to change.

    Also, one of their inventory slots is seemingly unlocked at level 25 - the chest armor, perhaps?

    Probably, or a small talisman or something.

    So they basically focused the mercenary system down to "Support/Spelldamage, Support/Archery, Tank/Melee." I.E. no more Act 2 Mercs being the best at everything in most situations. Interesting. The character design though, I just don't know what to say. Blonde Bimbo, Oh God They Didn't Actually Give Him That Face and Mustache. Templar's alright, though. Diablo 2's Act 2/3 mercs are still my favorite visual merc designs though.

    P.S. Oh my, that video is just filled with various visual information. Like dat spinny disk attack by the Demon Hunter? Skillrune of molten arrow or skill?

    Pretty sure you unlock a new skill at level 25. If you look at the follower's progression of skill levels, in comparison to his character level, it only makes sense that at level 25, he'd get a new skill. Maybe a new skill, and an armor slot?
