    Am I not looking in the right places? I don't see anything that suggests a necromancer.

    That's the witch doctor. The replacement for the necromancer.

    The purple thing that he is casting in the first shot could definetely be bone spirit, or some variation of it.

    It could also definately be a purple ghostly paladin that he is casting. If you want to see that in it really hard.

    It's a necromancer!!! Too bad you can't play an undead... but hey, at least there are necros in the game!

    It's not a necromancer. It is another witch docter ally or enemy. There are no necro's playable in the game. Blizzard already confirmed all new classes.

    All new, don't think so...
    Blizzard has already confirmed the Witch Doctor and the Barbarian. That's all of the information that is out there. People have been posting cultists saying they are sorcerers, but only two classes have been shown.

    The only extra peice of visual information that was not shown in the official vids is the fallen shaman Bashiok has in his profile pic.

    I'm pretty sure the reference to the Necromancer is being made to the Skeletal Shaman in the middle of the Skeleton pack.

    Re: Possible Necro pics?


    I see someone already quoted one of these posts-but still have to ask

    Where? I heard that -MOST- weren't coming back, due to:

    insanity/cowardice/and suicide.
    [somewhere in the lore section]

    Looks like an undead mage... a very cool undead mage.

    Re: Possible Necro pics?

    The OP is defintely referring to the Skeletal Summoner in the middle of the skellies. If that picture was new to you it's easy to see how you can come to that conclusion.

    The Barbarian may well not be the only class to return. Jay Wilson made a brief mention of previous classes in the Press Q&A.

    Q: Is there any facility to port over D2 character?
    A: We're going to cross over some characters... oh you mean actual playable d2 chars? No there's no way. It's not compatible. Different classes, different game engines, etc.


    Although the question was barking mad (transferring your char from D2 to D3) he mentions "some classes" when he at first believes the question is about playable classes from Diablo 2 being playable in Diablo 3.

    Also here's a statement from Brian Morrisroe at the Denziens of Diablo panel

    You also start to wonder what kind of background they have? The wizard looks unhappy. These guys live in a morally gray area. We latched onto that for inspiration as a character design team.


    Could he be referring to the Sorcerer from Diablo or is he meaning the Doctor? If it's the former and he's been mulling over his history, why he's unhappy, there's little reason to do that other than to better develop him for Diablo 3.

    From the Lore and Environmental Panel...

    I can tell you that the game starts in new Tristram. Just outside of old Tristram. Deckard Cain comes back. You'll see some NPCs and a hero or two you've played before.


    From an interview with Rob Pardo

    The Barbarian was the easy one for us, because he's one of the few classes that's coming over into the new game...

    They aren't gunna accidentally release images of other classes (or sneak them in to be silly)... just like people thought there might be a druid concept drawing released...

    Time will tell...

    Yeah I worded my reply wrong. Sorry about that. Was tired as hell and had to get up for work in 4 hours.
