The latest Diablo 3 character to be showcased is the Witch Doctor, namely the female variety. Blizzard has updated the Witch Doctor page with some new artwork, screenshots and an animation of our new voodoo lady.
I gotta say… I’m really impressed with her overall look. She looks quite authentic to say the least.
I’m liking how Blizzard is steering away from making all of the female classes “hot”. Well, the female Monk is pretty hot and the Wizard girl is cute, but the Barb and Witch Doctor females are definitely more intimidating than anything. The female Witch Doctor looks like she’s ready to bare her teeth and hiss at any moment, then strike with cat-like quickness with her poison-tipped sabretooth fang.
Seeing this model begs the question… I wonder if the facial markings and paint will change with different gear, or if that feature just remains constant. The same goes for her earrings and other accoutrements. A necklace of shrunken heads would really set off her ensemble.
This is a very impressive design to say the least. I typically prefer the male counterparts when available, but I’m thinking I may have to go with a female when it comes time to roll a Witch Doctor. She’s just too badass.
Well, that’s about all we’re going to see for awhile, as far as new character models are concerned. All of the male and female versions of the four existing character classes have now been revealed. My guess is that by Blizzcon 2010, Blizz will have both the male and female versions at the ready, for which ever new character class they have left to drop on us.
Again… my money’s on the Rogue.
