Diablo 3 Rise Of The Necromancer.

Restoring the Balance—Necromancer Overview

Necromancer Wallpaper.png

The Priests of Rathma—or necromancers, as outsiders call them—have long remained shrouded in mystery. Deep within the jungles of Kehjistan, they train to preserve the delicate balance between the forces of life and death. Now Sanctuary has need of their unique power, and the Priests of Rathma will answer.

The Basics

Q: What is the Necromancer?

A: The Necromancer will be the next fully-playable class introduced to Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. As a master of the dark arts, you draw your magic from the power of death itself, and command mighty armies of risen warriors! Oh, and you can make corpses explode. There are definitely exploding corpses.

Q: Who will be able to play the Necromancer?

A: We’re still settling on final details, but the Necromancer will be available as part of the Rise of the Necromancer pack, set to release in 2017. Players will need both Diablo III and Reaper of Souls to access this content (or, in the case of console, the Ultimate Evil Edition on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One).

Q: What will we get as part of the Rise of the Necromancer pack?

A: In addition to unlocking the Necromancer as a playable character, players will also receive an in-game pet, two additional character slots, two additional stash tabs (on PC), a portrait frame, pennant, banner, and banner sigil.

Q: When will the Necromancer be available for purchase/in-game?

A: Sometime in 2017—we’ll provide more details as we near release!

Q: How much will the pack cost?

A: We’re not ready to announce a price just yet. Stay tuned!

Q: Will the Necromancer be coming to all regions?

A: The Necromancer will be available in all regions that currently support Diablo III: Reaper of Souls or Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition. Details on accessing the new hero will be available at a later date.

Who is the Necromancer?

Q: Is this the same Necromancer from Diablo II or Xul from Heroes of the Storm?

A: No. The Necromancer playable characters will be two new nephalem heroes: one male, one female.

Q: Where is the female Necromancer?

A: The Necromancer is still in very early development. We’re hard at work on the class as a whole, and the female model just isn’t ready for us to share with you yet! Here’s some awesome concept art, though.

Q: How is the Necromancer different from the Witch Doctor?

A: The Necromancer and Witch Doctor are quite different in both theme and play style!

Witch Doctors draw their magic from their spiritual connection to a realm they call the Unformed Land. This more light-hearted take on supernatural powers allows them to command creepy crawly denizens of the jungle and summon mindless zombified pets.

Necromancers can expect darker, more controlled gameplay centered around the raw materials of life: blood and bone. Grounded in a philosophical, pragmatic approach to life and death, they’re more like a calculated conductor of the darkest arts. Deadly serious in their practice, they are the experts of curses and reanimation—and their pets obey their every command.

Q: What sort of skills or abilities can we expect from the Necromancer?

A: The Diablo III Necromancer is a reimagining of the classic Diablo II class. While not all of the Diablo II class skills will be returning, we drew a lot of inspiration from the previous version of the Necromancer and have taken the Diablo III version in a direction we hope you’ll love!

In addition to Corpse Explosion as shown above, here’s a few more of the skills we have in store:

Q: Will the Necromancer get set items and class-specific legendaries?

A: Yes! We are planning a full set of legendaries and set items for the Necromancer, including the class-specific scythe in their main hand. Additional details will follow at a later date!

Hearthstone: Is Yogg’saron Overpowered?

Hearthstone: Is Yogg’saron Overpowered?

The Old God Yogg’saron’s Coin Flip Balanced Power Has Caused A Lot Of Controversy Lately.

 

When the old gods were released players predicted that C’thun and N’zoth were going to be the most powerful in the set. People figured that Y’shaarj was to slow to be useful and Yogg’saron was to random to be reliable.

That prediction seems to be wrong right now. C’thun and N’zoth are very reliant on their deck and do not see use all that much. Yogg’saron however is being put in nearly every deck right now. He seems to help you out more often than harm you and can flat out win a lost game for you. Most decks have a decent number of spells in them already so Yogg fits perfectly without much tweaking needed.

Is this good for Hearthstone as a whole? Is the completely RNG based power of Yogg’saron fair or balanced? Players dont believe so and are calling for nerfs to Yogg’saron.

Personally I think Yogg’saron’s value for his cost is just to high. I have won so many games that I should of lost by surviving until turn 10 and playing Yogg. I have also lost many games that I should of won because of Yogg’saron I felt like I could not counter him even if I knew my opponent had him in his deck.

Hopefully the new adventure gives us some counters to Yogg’saron. Perhaps more cards that punish your opponent for using spells. Whatever the changes coming up may be I am excited for the future of Hearthstone.
