Fiacla-Géar Wings... Let the theories begin. I highly doubt Blizzard would release another character pack with the Druid, but who knows?

Well, a lot of people felt that Necro was a stupid move when there was Druid as an option that would at least bring something more different to the game instead of just another thing that summons things that are dead.

I absolutely love the Necro in Diablo 2 and he isn't bad in D3 now but I definitly think the Druid would add so much more diversity since there is no transformation of characters (not counting Wrath of the Berserker or Akkhan).

I agree with both sides. However, the Necromancer is too iconic. Most people, myself included, assimilate Necromancers to Diablo, and vice-versa. When you say "Diablo" the very first thing I think of is the Necromancer. While the Barbarian has always been considered the "class mascot", the Necromancer is far more recognizable, in my opinion.

But I'd love to see the Druid in Diablo III, with awesome shape-shifting skills and buffs. Bring dat Carrion Worm and Heart of Wolverine back!

Was never a fan of the Carrion Worm sadly, I was more on the Wind-druid team running with Hurricane and Tornados :D

Carrion Worm is one of those iconic abilities that was fun to use. I liked to use the Summoner Druid build just for the giggles. It was amusing to see the Carrion Worm making all those pixelated fissures on the ground near you, such a playful creature.

They borrowed the concept of a Familiar from the Druid in Diablo II to the Demon Hunter in Diablo III, but if they were to bring back the Druid, I'd love to see him having a pet build as well. With bears and carrion worms. =D

Necromancer was a DLC that didn't offer much for the rest of the classes and beyond that it's been nearly a year since there was a patch offer this many changes to items to balance the meta and offer more viability in builds.

So no, I'm not trolling, I think it was season 6 or so that had changes of this magnitude overall.

If you say so.I mean every season adds changes to items and spells all the time doesn't look that big a change to me.Maybe I am just burnt out on D3 and this doesn't get me excited anymore.Just hard for me to understand that anyone would be that excited about the same thing every couple months.also after looking at the patch notes from season 11 and it looks to me that there were more changes in that patch??

Most of the changes though for next season offer diversity and sort of fixed "bad" builds that people used to like and some fixes, like the Soul Harvest one is a dealbreaker for us Witch Doctors in terms of gameplay that is amazing.

Last season most of the changes were environment and the focus on the DLC and for anyone who didn't buy the DLC there was basically no changes to the builds so everyone was playing the exact same things. Looking back at meta for the 4man teams it's been the same composition all the way since Season 7 sadly (With current season adding Necro ofc), so not a whole lot of diversity :/

Even Holy Shotgun is viable again. Thank you, 2.6.1.

Absolutely love this build so much. Crusader has so many amazing builds, just so happy they're not only going to have Blessed Hammer now.

      Placeholder for tweet 978094911605084160 Reddit (Source)
      Happy four year anniversary since the release of Reaper of Souls! The first and only expansion for Diablo 3, it was preceded by about a month by Patch 2.0, which changed a number of gameplay systems in Diablo 3 like Loot 2.0, Paragon 2.0, Difficulty System Rework. The Reaper of Souls then arrived in Sanctuary as Malthael captured the Black Soulstone, becoming the Aspect of Death. The expansion brought:
      A new class, the stalwart Crusader Level cap raised to 70 New items/powers only for level 61+ characters. Act V - Westmarch, Blood Marsh, and Battlefields of Eternity as some of the main locations Adventure Mode - Bounties, Nephalem Rifts The Mystic - Enchanting and Transmogrification Kadala and Blood Shard Gambling - The greatest evil of them all With that being said, we’re here to remember all the changes that have come to Diablo 3 since release, whether it was the introduction of the Infernal Machine, Brawling, Legendary Gems, or the removal of the Auction House, Invulnerable Minions, or the rework of Crafting Materials, Bounties, or Reflect affix.
      We’ve got 20 Diablo velcro patches to give out. They were given out at BlizzCon 2017 for playing the Diablo demo. To be eligible to win, just post a top-level comment below with your favorite (or least favorite) change that has come to Diablo 3. If you need a refresher on all the changes, check out the condensed patch notes.
      Some additional rules:
      You can only enter once. Your reddit account must be at least one month old by the time of this posting (i.e. created before February 25, 2018). All countries are eligible, although I’ll be shipping from the US, so it may take some to get to some parts of the world. Winners will be chosen randomly. Contest ends on April 1st, 11:59 PM PDT.
