Reminds me of the new Lara Croft game.

I can't wait to see the Barbarian trailer.

AAAAAGGGHH!

THEY MADE A WAYLANDER CLASS!

I MUST HAVE THIS GAME.

Grahav:
Looks like we can play with Sylvanas. Cool.

Just what I was thinking XD

You know, I never played the original Diablo's, but I'm looking forward to this now and after trying out the gameplay style in Torchlight.

That is just awesome. COME ON BLIZZ RELEASE IT ALREADY!

ThePirateMan:

Darth IB:
Looks very nice indeed.
But how do those crossbows reload? :O

Magic, ofcourse!

OT: The cinematic part looked kinda silly (which I loved) and the class seems good enough.

Just a bit sad that we won't be seeing any paladins. Or alteast so it seems.

Blizzard said the Barbarian would be the only returning class. Didn't everyone from the last game go insane except the Barbarian?

Wait this is the rogue with some upgrades..Needs more druid.

I can't wait for Diablo III...I just kinda feel bad I never played Diablo I and never beat Diablo II. But meh, fun is fun :D

OT: I like this class. Anyone know if you can be either guy or girl for these classes?

roostuf:
Wow looks good i hope its for the pc then i would buy it.

OT:(first)

Have you not heard of Diablo or something?

I feel like I've grown out of Blizzard, because that entire trailer just made me cringe.

Wow what a disappointment.... a demon hunter could have been so much cooler than that Asian-MMO-looking class.

The Rogue Wolf:

VicunaBlue:
So like the amazon and assassin crossed, then put into the body of Sylvanas?

Pretty much what I was thinking. One minor niggle, though... what's with the high heels? Not exactly practical. At least the rest of her armor makes sense, in a "provides a balance of protection and freedom of movement" manner rather than "let's see how little of her we can cover in platemail and nothing else for the rest" like you see in a lot of other female armor designs.

Thank you! I am so sick of women fighters with fan service armor that just makes them look ludicrous.

I normally play ranged characters in these games and crossbows are certainly my aesthetic weapon of choice but to be honest I thought she looked pretty ridiculous. It was nice to see her fully covered but dual wielding collapsible mini-crossbows? Shotgun crossbows? Bola firing crossbows?

I was really looking forward to this character, first since it was obviously going to be the ranged specialist and second because the other four classes didn't do much for me. At this point I'm not sure I'm going to pick Diablo 3 up; hopefully something will catch my eye later on.

At least she's smart and wearing full-body armour. Not any of that jrpg stuff were half your body is uncovered and still somehow prestine and undamaged after many battles etc. Kinda like the game already.

John Funk:
People complaining about the dialogue have clearly never played a Blizzard game before. Their dialogue is the very definition of Narm Charm. It's ALWAYS been like that.

I mean, have you guys played WC2? "The orcs... have DRAGONS...!!!!"

Thing is, the old Warcraft Games didn't take themselves so damn seriously. Unit reactions to orders were Oneliner Overkill, but that just matched the games' cartoonish style. But in Diablo it's just bad writing cause all the humor fled the scene when the first art designer combined the word "hell" with "dark and gritty setting". "Narm" may qualify, but I think the "charm"'s gone missing.

Stoped looking becuse of the extremly gay cheasyness. Really hoped blizzard would put more effort into thier trailers.

Knock yourself out.

On-topic: Do want. Now.

bah i taught it was boring... sorry i dont get the hype at all...
Probably because i think Hack & Slash game are way past theyr prime in 2010 and we should move forward... these game offer poors gameplay if you ask me, just mindless mouse mashing and about no skills what's ever needed

..she look a bit too static in gameplay, i expected to see her moving around shooting in one fluid motion.

Ugh; well it's a good thing she takes the time to apply makeup and lip-gloss every morning before hitting the road.

Oh I liked the Amazon well enough, but when you hit this level of detail, a bit more creativity would have been nice.

Also; how come Starcraft and WoW's cinematic trailers look like animated movies while the Diablo III clips look like something an indie developer would make as a pitch piece?

Well, since folks have been avidly playing D2 for a decade (much like StarCraft), I tend to disagree with your assumption that this "hack and slash" game is past it's prime.

*shrugs* Different strokes I guess, after all, not everyone likes FPS or sandbox games...

Besides, if folks actually did a little research, they'd discover that this game is still at LEAST a year away from being complete--the "in-game" shots in that promo aren't going to be the gold version, just like the versions at Blizzcon aren't going to be. This was only a character announcement.

Amusingly, the same crews make all of those trailers. =P
Diablo's just gothic, it's easier to be grittier, IMO.

Still not feeling it... this cringe fest is high generic fantasy, not Diablo.

New class looks like a nightelf... great imagination blizz.

I do like the lore of this character. Recoiled at it at first, because yeah, Warcraft, but it's growing on me. I think I remember saying to someone that I'd like to see a demonologist character, but I was thinking of a more magical class than someone who actually uses demon blood to burn things or something. But this is better than magic, because demon teeth explode. There's no willingness to bargain with or appease demons at all, just mash them all into hellspawn-brand explosive goo. Plus there's a secret society vibe to it, the way you can't be recruited unless you survive intense demon attacks. I like those parts. It's my favorite of the 5, from what I've seen this far.

The armor covers her, but it looks very intricate and probably magical, which I think is a mistake. This character would do better with simple and effective protective gear, like the paladin in D2. The recoil on those hand crossbows looks far too intense in the cinematic, but hopefully this won't be a problem in the game. I wouldn't mind having to use crossbows for some of those abilities, but I expect to see other weapons too, like with the Amazon. And finally, it would be pitiful if it turns into an emo goth (read: sparkly vampire) class. I could see people talking about Twilight whenever a Demon Hunter is around. *shudder*

Things I'm sitting on the fence about: glowing eyes, popularity, writing. Eh, we'll see.

I like it, still - BARBARIAN IS DA BEST!

Well that one is just epic, but this diablo trailer was just awfull

"were going to die here, aren't we."
"No. Because I have machine-gun crossbows and can do back flips and crap."

Awesome character. Awesome vid.

Was wondering when they were gonna reveal the archer archeotype.

Now I know what I'm playing!

Twilight.falls:
I don't see the problem in Blizzard's writing, I see it more as Narm Charm (Thank you TVtropes!)

sexy sexy narm charm. i want this game

Demon Hunter!? Right class, wrong game blizzard! That class belongs to WoW.

Her weapons remind me of the crossbow rifle from Van Helsing.

The more I see of this game the less enthused I get. Weird.

maybe its because the characters are getting too powerful? in the original and D2 Demons were something to be feared something that the player character would have to take seriously or face certain death. Im all for conviction in the face of overwhelming odds, but so far the PC's seem to be walking all over the opposition...maybe a mod would correct this?

Amazon + Assassin, in one class of win.
Since they + paladin were my favourite D2 classes, I think it is safe to say I'm likely to roll demon hunter now!
