Diablo III Details, Trailer

A new Diablo III PvP Section discusses what to expect from player versus player combat in Diablo III, Blizzard's upcoming action/RPG sequel. There's also a BlizzCon panel recap called Diablo III - A Hero Emerges, and also from BlizzCon is the introduction of the game's Demon Hunter along with a Demon Hunter cinematic trailer showing off some of her moves. Word is: "Armed with twin crossbows, an arsenal of deadly contraptions, and an unquenchable thirst for vengeance against the legions of the Burning Hells, the demon hunter strikes quickly and excels at hit-and-run tactics."

Health Orbs.

No attribute point distribution

Giant spiky WoW-style shoulder pads

Automatic skill learning at lvl up/No skill trees.



Forgetting the health orbs, are the other 3 actually true??
After seeing that comment I got curious too and did some quick googling.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diablo_3
Says shoulder pads are added.

googling for skill trees brought this up:
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/PC-RPG-Game-Diablo-Blizzard,9154.html
dated almost a year ago, where they said they wanted to focus on skill points rather than skill trees. I don't see anything more recent than that, so I dunno if thats changed.

Attributes appear to be auto distributed now, although blizzard says they might be working on a custom attribute system, but that work has been on hold for a year. They say they are doing it to be more friendly to n00bs (why not have tips pop up when you level then lol)

All the source articles were 2009 or older that I can find.

So short answer is yes, sounds like he's right as of a year or 2 ago. Today? Who knows.
Feel free to google up more in depth info, and let us know, I'm curious now.
