Blizzard is starting to put out teasers for the D3 expansion. Here is the first teaser image: Reaper of Souls.
This means it's time to start speculating about the expansion. Here's my wish list:
1. Two new classes, including the Paladin
I'm biased of course, but I'd love to see the paladin come back. D3 could really use another class that emphasizes melee weapons and armor.
The second class could be the necromancer, or maybe the druid, or even something totally new to Diablo. Actually something totally new would be cool, so we'd have one returning class and one new class.
2. A No-Trade, No-AH mode
I'd like to see another game mode, like Hardcore with its separate stash, only without trading and the AH. I think the AH hurt D3, and I'd like to see what the game is like without it.
Introducing a new mode with the expansion also creates a new level playing field for everyone to compete in.
3. Allow Hardcore characters to transfer to Normal mode on death
This one is shamelessly stolen from Path of Exile. When a hardcore character dies, transfer it to Normal mode. That way the hours of work that was put in is not completely wasted. I think this might encourage more people to play hardcore mode.
On the other hand, part of attraction of hardcore is the "sting" of losing a character. Maybe reducing the risk will make hardcore less thrilling. Maybe having the character lose all her gear would be a good compromise. Or maybe it would be better to just leave it alone.
Those are the three (or two and a half) ideas I'd like to see in a D3 expansion. What would you like to see?
