Another fantastic D3 Beta game play video from Force — this one featuring Diablo 3’s version of the Necromancer… the Witch Doctor.
The Witch Doctor looks like a very interesting class, and will no doubt be a popular choice for fans of the Diablo 2 Necromancer. The Witch Doctor is a summoning class with a good mix of ranged spells, AoE, and various crowd control abilities, similar to the Poison Necro from D2, but probably a lot more effective. 😉
The Witch Doctor spells and abilities are quite creative, with some very entertaining animations. The Zombie Dogs are awesome, and I especially like the Zombie Charger and Corpse Spider abilities, as far as the spell visuals are concerned.
Word on the street is that the Witch Doctor has been very well received in the beta, which comes as no surprise after watching this 3 part video. After seeing the Witch Doctor in action, I’m really eager to see how he does in the PvP arena. His DoT and run style of play looks to lend itself to PvP, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
At any rate… enjoy this latest Let’s Play 3-parter from Force!
