04:20 pm - Necromancy
Many of you know by now that Diablo III is coming out. Which means (of course) that I'll have to buy a new computer in order to run the damn thing.

But there's been a lot of talk about what's happening to various character classes. There's speculation that the Witch Doctor class has replaced the Necromancer (and speculation that this speculation is all bunk, of course). The Necromancer is, by far, my favourite character class in Diablo 2.

Anyway, to avoid writing an entire entry about a game that was announced less than a week ago, I'm going to just say what the point of this little post was about, anyway:

I'm thinking about writing an article on necromancy for the Samhain issue of Oak Leaves. I think it would fit nifty-like there.

Besides, I haven't been able to get anything into OL for a very long time. I feel somewhat guilty about that, actually.

Totally excited for Diablo 3.

One of our writers put together a really good summary of what is known right now: http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/53395

*nods* All good stuff. I'm particularly fond of the care they've put into the Necro's backstory, in general. Just from reading the manuals (never picked up a book on it), it's clear they're well developed.

Here's hopin' for a return, at least in the expansion(s) . . .

Yeah, they're not the most effective strategy, even if they do look awesome :)

The new patch lets you play without the CD in the drive, which is pretty cool, actually.

Hehe. I'll have to buy a new computer in order to play, I'm guessing.

I think that those who work in a Gaulish-oriented practice would be more likely to be interested in necromancy, myself. I don't know why I think that, but I really do.

When you think of necromancy, do you think of anything involving the dead, or just divination involving the dead as "counting" as necromancy?

The necromancer was my favorite, too. What's Oak Leaves?

It's ADF's quarterly journal. Good reading, that.

I was so excited about D3 coming out that I started playing D2 again - funny, it seems that everyone else did too.
