The Barbarian Returns in Diablo III


One of the most anticipated PC games is Diablo 3. When Blizzard announced this, millions of gamers around the world nearly tore their hair out when they found out that their Diablo career will continue.

Blizzard initially released information on 2 job classes, the Barbarian and the Witch Doctor. There are supposedly a total of 5 playable job classes - which leaves us with 3 more. There has been a lot of speculation on what the remaining job classes are but it looks like we won’t get to see the Amazon, Paladin, or even the Necromancer anymore. In a recent game conference in Germany, Blizzard confirmed that the Barbarian is the only original class that will be coming back in Diablo 3.

Diablo III lead designer Jay Wilson says the reason is simple. The Barbarian in Diablo II could’ve been better. He was a bit more diplomatic in his dissing, saying that the brute force attack class had “room for improvement.”

There’s one class that definitely won’t be coming back for another appearance in Diablo III. And Wilson says that it was because that class was just shy of perfectly designed.

The Necromancer, he said, was simply a victim of his own success. He was just too well crafted as a character, something that Wilson’s Blizzard design cohorts, current and former, likely don’t mind hearing. Necro fans on the other hand, probably won’t be too thrilled to learn of his disappearance, despite the Witch Doctor class’s similarities.

Wilson says that there are absolutely no plans to bring back any other classes, but, given that Blizzard wasn’t breaking any news at Games Convention, wouldn’t dish any details on what the remaining three classes will be.

  1. That strikes me as odd logic for why to bring back a class, or not bring it back, but hey... I just want my Diablo III.
