Two additional slots and stash tabs also coming.
Diablo 3 will be receiving – among many other things – a new class. As leaked earlier on the Blizzard Store, the Necromancer from Diablo 2 will arrive in Diablo 3 next year.
The Necromancer is quite different from the Witch Doctor. The class can summon skeletons and command them to attack his enemies. It’s also possible to use Corpse Explosion, exploding 10 corpses at once to inflict damage. You can also just straightaway resurrect skeletons with Army of the Dead and send them to a spot to explode.
Using Essence as a resource, the Necromancer can use Bone Spear to attack his enemies and Decrepify to curse and slow enemies, thus reducing the damage caused. Siphon Blood allows the class to drain health and essence from an enemy and Blood Rush allows the Necromancer to quickly teleport from one location to another. It’s also possible to summon a Blood Golem.
The Rise of the Necromancer goes live in the second half of 2017 as a part of a character pack and also features two character slots, two stash stabs and cosmetics. More details will be revealed next year.
