diablo-iii-necromancer

Okay. Breathe, Tarryn. Breathe. Okay. So, this is a “maybe” for now BUT IT HAD BETTER BE REAL but according to some pre-BlizzCon artwork accidentally dropped on the company’s website (and since removed, obviously), the Diablo II‘s Necromancer is being resurrected for Diablo III. Resurrected.

I guess we’ll find out this weekend.

… Oooooh, what if it’s Diablo IV? Please let it be Diablo IV.
