Features of New Diablo 3 skills

Since Blizzcon 2008, 24 Diablo 3 skills have been added to the 57 Wizard skills. The introduction of traits allows Blizzard to clear away all the repetitive and inactive skills. All the skills are going to be dynamic abilities and spells, while the traits are going to be passive. 7 out of the 24 skills can be chosen and used by your character. Compared to Diablo 2, this will include significant amount of strategy, but at the same time it will also maintain simplicity so that you can keep a track over all the Diablo 3 skills on the action bar.

Blizzard also mentions that they are going to allow you to “re-spec,” but the details are not yet finalized. It is possible that you can find change in the number of Diablo 3 skills, but presently it seems that they are satisfied with the system. No proper skill trees have been found since it came down to 24 skills. When you check the “Skill Calculator” you will find that there are both active as well as passive Diablo 3 skills.

Even though the damages will be listed by most of the spells, all the numbers are relative because they get affected by your wizard’s equipment, attributes, traits, runes character levels and other Diablo 3 skills. If you have already played the last version, you would be well aware of the items that could have an impact on your damage and other factors. And, you would find Diablo 3 to be similar in this regard. Several traits, items and runes will have an impact on the power of the spells and they way they function.It is to be noted that anything pointed as “passive” is going to be detached and added to traits section. Initially, they had considered to have the Diablo 3 skills tree to work similar to the World of Warcraft talent trees. It would be required to spend 5 points in a single tier so as to achieve the skills from the next tier.

Since now it would be possible to take 7 skills, things will change a bit. However, you are still going to be restricted to Tier 1 Diablo 3 skills when in low level and get access to high tiers with increase in level. The purpose of doing this was to match the skills that you would have used with the previous gameplay. Here, the purpose of Blizzard was to keep players from beginning with excessively complex skills and get disturbed. But, this should not indicate that first tier Diablo 3 skills are not going to be feasible for end game.

When you want to have all Tier 7 Diablo 3 skills, it is possible to re-spec when you are at the right level. Many players may have considered getting just 4 skills in order to get the maximum out of them in place of increasing their points. But, Blizzard assures that it has been designed in such a way that there are sufficient benefits in getting all the 7 Diablo 3 skills. This is especially because of long cooldowns and defensive skills.

BlizzCon 2012 Cancelled

March 12th, 2014

Blizzcon 2012 has been cancelled, according to their statement which can be read here, Blizzard officials have stated “We’re also heavily focused on getting Diablo III, Mists of Pandaria, and Heart of the Swarm into players’ hands as soon as possible. In light of our jam-packed schedule, we’ve decided to hold the next BlizzCon in 2013″. This is the second time Blizzard have cancelled their annual conference, the first being in 2006. Since then we have had 5 years of annual mayhem and excitement. Many people seem to be questioning the real reasons why BlizzCon 2012 has been cancelled, some just accept what we have been told by Blizzard but some seem to believe that Blizzard actually have nothing to announce.

In 2005 they had World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. 2007 World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. 2008, Starcraft II and Diablo III Wizard Class. 2009, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and Diablo III Monk Class. 2010, Diablo III Demon Hunter Class, Arena PVP. 2011, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. What this year? What could they announce, they have announced most of the information we greatly desire about MoP and D3, Titan will also most likely not be in a developed enough stage for many announcements. Although they could inform us on little things maybe they just don’t have anything they deem ‘big enough’ to announce.

Regardless of this, BlizzCon will continue in 2013 and who knows what will happen between now and then. We should all look forward to an even greater more purposeful BlizzCon in 2013 with all the announcements we missed this year.

It is worth noting that although Blizzcon 2012 has been cancelled, the 2012 Battle.net World Championship will still happen. Blizzard announced this in a statement that can be found here, it read “Blizzard Entertainment is proud to announce the 2012 Battle.net World Championship, a major global eSports event featuring some of the best pro-gaming competition in the world. Slated to take place in Asia toward the end of 2012, the Battle.net World Championship will host this year’s StarCraft II and World of Warcraft Arena World Championship tournaments.”

Diablo 3 Release date information

March 12th, 2014

Blizzard have recently said that unfortunately there will be no Diablo 3 in Q1 of 2012. This means D3 should almost definitely be released in Q2 of 2012 if nothing else goes wrong. We can’t be sure there won’t be any more delays though as it was already delayed from 2011 to Q1 of 2012 and then from Q1 to Q2 of 2012.
