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.

      Some good news today, as the promised extra buff has arrived to Season 21 and we're getting double Horadric Caches! Each time you complete a bounty you'll be getting 2 chests, both affected by the difficulty you're playing at. This will not affect the Challenge Rift cache. The event starts in under an hour, at 8PM CEST, 11AM PDT.

      We also found out that future PTR test cycles will be longer, with an extra week of actual PTR testing when a new season comes.
      Double Bounties (source)
      Hello everyone –
      The trials this season brings upon a new event for the community. Starting from 11am PT today and through the end of Season 21, all bounties will be doubled. What does this exactly entail? All Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. This means that each time you complete bounties in an Act, you will now receive two Horadric Caches as opposed to just one. Double the bounty rewards!
      There are a few things to keep in mind with this effect:
      The bonus cache does benefit from difficulty level; it is essentially as though you completed twice the bounties. The rewards inside the Horadric Caches are otherwise unaffected; drop rates or the amount of individual rewards have not been altered. The bonus cache earned from Challenge Rifts is not affected; this is a separate type of cache.
      Check out our Game Guide for a list of bounty-exclusive Legendary items and more information on the Bounty system.
      On top of this, we would like to note that we plan on extending PTR testing timelines prior to each new season going forward. This will result in a slightly extended season, and will allow for 2 weeks of PTR testing for the community along with an additional week for the team to implement and work feedback/changes in before the season begins. The intention here is to make sure we can apply as much feedback as possible from the community during these PTR timelines while also giving us a good amount of time to test these changes before they go live.
      Thanks again. Happy slaying!

      After the recent Demon Hunter 150 clears, it's time for the second class to break that barrier in Season 21, as we now have a Barbarian max rift clear! Redditor Nexrate has done it, and done it twice it seems, as his first 150 clear was lost to some bugs on the leaderboards, but the second one remained.The build is a modified Rend Wrath of the Wastes, with Zei's instead of Stricken, using the seasonal power to clear everything up, with the big challenge being getting that snowball at the end (and aiming it properly) to finish off the boss in time, with the Coundiut before the boss spawned helping out a bit as well.
      As for the other classes, the closest is a GR 143 Necromancer, followed by a 142 Necro and Witch Doctor.

      After Wudijo's recent Rank 1 and World 2nd GR 150 clear, beating his World First clan-mate by almost 5 minutes, he's made a video detailing his journey to the top. We find out some truly impressive stuff: his refusal to simply grind paragon levels to make the task easier, the fact he plays along side a full-time job and had to sacrifice a lot of sleep, we get to hear about the many near-misses and how he had to learn to perfectly play around the seasonal theme, the fact it took him twice as many keys as he thought it would (5.5K), the fact he used 60 keys an hour, the fact he used as many keys as last season, when he was pushing on 6 classes and a lot more!

      Wudijo scored the world's fastest Solo Greater Rift 150 in time in Season 21 with his Demon Hunter after 5,500 used keys and weeks of attempts. Congrats!
      UPDATE: This is currently the world's second clear of Solo GR150, not world first as we thought, we apologize for the confusion!
      Placeholder for tweet 1289929742800449540   The player completed the rift and killed the Infernal Maiden with 1 minute and 4 seconds remaining on the timer.

      Here are the final moments of the run!

      It's time for some more weirdness as Wudijo is trying some crazy stuff! So how can someone get from level 1 to 70 in 5 seconds you might ask? Well it's easy! You just need 8 hours of torment 16 bounty farming, 1 crash where you almost lose 341 bounty caches on the ground, Custerian Wristguards and Avarice Band! But after that it's only 5 seconds of picking up all the gold and getting a whole lot of XP through the bracers! Enjoy:
