Diablo 3 Builds - How Might Character Customization Work In D3 Powered By Docstoc
					If you're a big fan of the Diablo universe, there is a very big chance that you're excited about the upcoming
release of Diablo 3. Diablo 1 is a classic amongst gamers and Diablo 2 took it to a whole new level with
speed runs and class builds.


While there is no set date for the release of D3 as of yet, it's possible it will be released in Q4 2011 or some
time during 2012. Regardless of when it comes out, It's going to revolutionize what it means to play a game
online.


Blizzard are incorporating new features into the game which will include 100's of various Diablo 3 builds
across all characters and classes. If you wanted to do well in PvM and PvP in Diablo 2, it was crucial you
did some theory crafting about your class. It was important to use a build that was specific to what you
wanted to do in the game; be that farm items in PvM or kill other players in PvP.


Needless to say, how you customize and build your character in D3 is going to be far more robust than in
previous iterations of the game. D3 will do away with talent trees and will instead allow you to choose from
a large pool of skills as you level up. The game has been developed in this fashion to allow a vast assorted of
builds although there will likely be a few that are best for rushes, farming, DPS and PvP.


To date, 5 classes have been confirmed for launch which are:


Barbarian
Demon Hunter
Monk
Witch Doctor
Wizard
The only class to return from D1 and D2 is the Barbarian class; the remaining 4 are entirely new but share
some obvious inspiration from previous classes in the Diablo universe. It would very easy to speculate as to
which class is the best but at this point, not a lot of information is confirmed.


Blizzard have released videos, screenshots and given a lot of info out at Blizzcon about how these new
classes will play but as always, these things are changed, refined or completely re-built from scratch as was
the case with the male Demon Hunter; it recently went under an entire art rehaul as the team was not happy
with the animation.


As we move closer and closer to the beta, the best builds for Diablo 3 will start to appear for each of the 5
classes. Undoubtedly, some skills will be OP or bugged and be on the receiving end of the Nerf bat but it's
important to keep in mind that is what a beta designed is fix.
