To say that we've been following the news regarding Diablo III closely is a bit of an understatement. The game looks to be awesome, no doubt about it, whether you're a fan of rainbows, shadows, or something in between. Some new information regarding the talent trees for two of the classes has been revealed, and the folks over at Diablo3X have a nice preview for each tree. The barbarian tree can be found here, and the wizard information is right here.
I get a tremendous World of Warcraft vibe from the talents, but that's likely due to the presentation, not the content. Some old favorites from Diablo II like Whirlwind, Blizzard, and Teleport appear. New skills like Disintegrate and Seismic Slam show great promise. Still no Care Bear stare, but check out this amazing Barbarian talent.
Upon receiving fatal damage, the Barbarian is kept alive and gains XX% of maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every XXX seconds.
My feelings about Diablo III can be summed up in three words: WANT WANT WANT.
