Default Reaper of Souls Q&A - Interview's done!

Hey there!

So, it seems that through some kind of mix up, we aren't interviewing the Diablo console team, but the actual Diablo 3 team.

That means: We have to ask them of course about their current project: Reaper of Souls!

The interview is tomorrow already, so please, I need them fast!

Noted questions:

- Will there be any new companions or any new content for the existing companions?

What variation of environments will we see? The Horadric sanctuary and streets of Westmarch shown in the videos looked cool, what else can we expect?

How will the Crusader differ from the Paladin, both in lore and gameplay? What about the Templar?

Westmarch is a location that has a lot of lore but has never appeared in game until now. What was it like to build a nation and culture with a lot of expectations but no real examples? What might we find out about Westmarch that would surprise us?

Will the armor and weapons to be found in Act V have any unique aesthetics or themes you'd like to share with us?

Where did the new Horadrim with Tyrael come from? Are they the same as those in Nate Kenyon's The Order?

How many new locations will we be seeing.

Any news of new companions or extensions of their existing story-lines.

What are you doing to keep the game fresh.

On a level of one to ten how much do you loathe pants.

Will we see any necromancers in the death themed expansion?

(perfectly fine with not playing them as the Crusader is just plain awesome, but you'd think the guys who don't like Heaven or Hell and have an affinity for Death would be interested in the Angel of Death showing up).

The necromancers are pretty anti-death, good question.

Will we ever see a continuation of the current follower's stories?

How did Tyrael turn into a human? Ripping off his wings does it?

Will we ever see more boss mechanics integrated into the game bosses? The Diablo fight felt very lackluster.

With RoS, will the current campaign be changed at all? New locations/characters?

Will the current campaign be changed at all to fit the Crusader? (Like unique dialogue for characters.)

Could you please reduce the amount silly villainous exposition during cutscenes or fights?

The bosses found at the end of the Loot Runs are bosses like Diablo and the Butcher, mini-bosses like Maghda and The Warden, or something entirely new?

How many new Legendary items are you planning to add, not counting the revamped items?

What are the stars next to the new Legendary names, featured at the presentation?

Some items featured at the presentation are Account-bound, different from the current version. Can you explain what is this change?

Nephalem Trials are completely random to appear and with no requirements, like a dungeon, or have some kind of requirement like the Infernal Machine portals? ASKED IN A RECENT INTERVIEW

For vanilla classes, new runes will be added to existing skills too or only for the new skills?

-If Tyrael can become a mortal so easily, can this be done to other angels, or even demons?
-Will the Crusader have a short story introducing their reasoning for adventuring like the other classes had?

Hope these aren't answered already elsewhere, but...

Can we expect any new follower roles with RoS?

Will followers have any more abilities added to their current selection to help strengthen more build diversity?

Will there be more storage tabs?

Yes, this seems to be my issue in every Blizzard game.

Runes

Does Mathael have much in the way of minions / an army or is he doing a one-man thing?

I'll second the question on Follower advancement. New abilities? New Followers? Absolution on the Follower narratives? Having more than one Follower out in single-player mode?

Hell, what connection do the Crusader, Templar, and Paladin all have with one another?

Follow-up: any chance at finding out more about what happened to the D2 heroes? We know the Necromancer had an apprentice and that the Wizard is the Sorceress' apprentice (and the D2 Barb is not the D3 Barb) but what about the Amazon, Assassin, Druid in the post-Baal aftermath?

Will there be future short stories for the classes to expand on them more, along with the stories that the new Crusader class will bring in?

Also what fictional/real world examples were an inspiration for the Crusader? I understand this question might not sound so intelligent, but I'm wondering if there's more nuanced inspirations they took besides just Knight Templars.

Crusaders look more like the Teutonic Knights than the Knights Templar.
