    Well, the presented areas look dark (at last). They actually look very dark, remind me more of Diablo 1. That's good.

    Other than that, it seems that my prayers are fulfilled: Paladin is back.
    And the end-game dungeons look like the expansion might be able to hold people longer after all.

    Of cause. Blizzard loves the Paladin so much they have to include it in almost every game.

    Looks awesome. I personally never got around very far in my Diablo 3 CE, but I'll have a new Haswell rig soon, so I look forward to making up for lost time :D

    Actually if I remember correctly, the fans were crying because the Paladin wasn't included in D3, this was prolly a demand thing.

    Well, fans cried even more for necromancer but the decision was taken by the fact that there are already 2 classes using intelligence, 2 classes using dexterity but only 1 class using strength. Crusader will fill that gap and will become the second class using strength.

    Of course that leaves everything open for the second expansion.

    Cool. I played through on a few characters when the game came out, and did some multiplayer with my brother. But my hand hurt so much from the clicking, that I had to back off.

    Maybe I'll pick up the expansion and play it through with the new class.

    Excited for it, but not sure If I'll buy just yet. While Diablo 3 is a great, it isn't without it's issues.

    Most of the things based on what I've been reading have been resolved in the Expansion though, which is great.

    But It's still only one act & one class.. Hopefully It turns out good, and hoping It's not expensive either :p

    Yes, they seem to address most major issues with this expansion. Loot efficiency, auction house necessity, demand for a darker scenery, things to do after finishing the story. Despite the fact that these things should be at the game already, this expansion might worth the trouble.

    I'll pick it up as I want to see what the story is like. They did kind of ruin the Lore in D3 with some useless characters.
    This might be fun, if only for a single play through.

    I'll only buy it if they bring Deckard Cain back from the dead. :D

    I was one of the ones who got hacked back last August when Blizzard got hacked. I've been locked out of my account since. Nothing on Blizzards contact site worked for getting ahold of a person (Everything requires a password reset and since someone changed the name associated with my account I coudln't do that) and, even worse, when you try and hit the contact or email buttons you get a little circle with a slash through it when you mouse over!

    They wouldn't even answer the endless string of messages from users with similar problems on their facebook pages.

    Thats a big "***** you" in my book to the customer.

    It wasn't until recently where they updated the phone number you get when you google them. Before it was some number that just endlessly looped without you getting to a person.

    Diablo 3 expansion? No thanks. Blizzard is a trash company anymore. Its pretty sad when you have to buy a keychain to keep your account from getting hacked.
