Blizzard have just taken the wraps off Diablo 3's fifth and final class at Blizzcon 2010. The class is called the Demon Hunter, and she appears to be a ranger like support character who specializes in bow and knife attacks. Five videos have been released of her special attacks - molten shot, boa, entangle, grenade, and fan of knives are all on display and impressive looking.
Like the previous classes, each one has their own story.
They call themselves the demon hunters, a group of fanatical warriors sworn to a single purpose: the destruction of the creatures of the Burning Hells. The demon hunters number in the hundreds and make their home in the Dreadlands so that they can live and train without the interference of any nation that would worry over having such a fearsome group camped within its borders (though at any time over half are dispatched across the world like this girl, seeking hellspawn). There is something in all demon hunters that gives them the strength to resist the demonic corruption that would drive lesser men to madness. They hone this power, for their resistance to this taint enables them to use the demons' power as a weapon. But their mission and their power are not all that bind them together.
The final piece of the Diablo 3 puzzle now is to see the male version of this character. After that we await to find out confirmation of the number of players in co-op - and of course - the ever elusive release date. We'll have all the new information on Diablo 3 as it comes out this weekend from Blizzcon.
