I'm excited about Diablo 3. I noticed that blizzard has posted a skill calculator for the yet-to-be-released game, and tonight I sat down and check it out. Given the success of my previous pairing of Diablo 2 with Stone Smoked Porter, I thought I'd enjoy a mug of my homebrewed smoked porter while I explored the different character classes that Diablo 3 will offer.
Without going into too much detail, using the skill calculator made me look forward to the game more than ever. I still don't really understand how character development will work, but the descriptions of various skills enticed me. A few of the more awesome ability descriptions were:
"Ichor erupts from the corpses of the Zombie Dogs and Slows enemies by 60% for 8 seconds."
"Throw a jar with 4 spiders that attacked nearby enemies for 16% weapon damage as Physical before dying."
"Increases Hatred generation to 6 Hatred."
If you are an extremely nerdy Diablo devotee and like booze, I highly recommend drinking and checking out the skill calculator. My smoked porter was a nice match, but I'm sure anything else would also work just fine.
UPDATE: I just realized that this post could maybe be construed as an April Fool's Day joke. I assure you that this was not the case, and that this was all written in complete seriousness.
