The last in Force’s series of “Let’s Play” videos… the Wizard.
I must admit, I’ve never really been much for caster classes, but the D3 Wizard looks awesome so far. After having watched all five videos in the Let’s Play series, the Wizard looks to be the most powerful – at least for the beta. I’m sure there will be other zones and boss encounters that present more of a disadvantage for the Wizard, but as far as the beta content goes… the Wizard takes the beast crown.
In fact, this walk-through went so smoothly that Force did it in two parts, rather than three. I’m sure part of his speedy run-through had to do with his increased familiarity with the content, but still… the Wizard looked be very handily slaying foes left and right, while barely breaking a sweat.
Some notable moments in the first video…
There’s a dreaded server disconnect at 13:45, which shuts down the video run-through for a short while. This is something I really hope becomes a non-issue by the time Diablo 3 goes live. Given that they’ve elected to have the game be playable only through Battle.net, they sure as hell better provide a reliable service or solo players will be up in arms.
At 21:11 there is a really cool random event which shows a small posse of what looks like “chilled” zombies, emerging up through the ground.
