Today is another great day for all you hard core diablo 3 fans. They just released a big video on what is called the follower system. This system is very similar to that of picking mercenaries from diablo 2. You basically get a type of player to join you in the game, however there is a big different this time around. These followers seem to be of their own classes with a mix. So in the following video you see they have a few major things outlined in it.
The Diablo 3 Enchantress follower class – This class looks very similar to that of the sorcerer in diablo 3 but with a different look and feel. In the video you can see they can hold items, have different armor perks, and have their very own spell levels and configurations. This is a great for players looking to build up on one follower over the course of the game.
The diablo 3 Scoundrel class – This class is much of a rogue it seems that he can do multiple types of ranged attacks mainly. As he is upgraded he looks to have some light armor with a certain type of thievery look to him. It seems awesome that he also has the ability to use someone called scavenge (maybe a new way to loot things in the game). Also he has the ability for the black market (Maybe a way to easily purchase goods while traveling in the game).
The diablo 3 Templar class – This class is the most exciting to me. It looks to be a paladin barbarian mix. When he is decked out he seems to have armor that would resemble that of max tier armor in world of warcraft. He also has some great spells that seem to be that of a paladin. Protection, loyalty, intervene, ect ect. His attacks however seem to be more along the lines of something a barbarian would do. Such as the one where he is jumping into battle.
Well those are the 3 followers we know of so far and some of the perks they have. Be sure to keep reading tault.com for more diablo 3 information as time goes by.
