The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

To play the character it represents. A number of the dragon aspects are more identifiable in their alternative forms.

Fringe franchises may eventually hurt gold generation by giving less us control over the daily quests we generate. No problem yet, but if more heroes are added, it'll likely end up opening dailies catered to those IP's.

The Lost Vikings should be wildcards that count as any franchise because they cameo in WoW, they hail from Earth which is in the Starcraft universe, and they frequently die which means they likely passed through Diablo turf.

If we eventually get enough classic heroes, they could get their own "Classic" category. I wouldnt mind.

They already are listed as Classic as it is. They just need a few more for it to be a daily.

I think it'd be neat to have a few of the Retro folks as champs and if they're popular maybe revive their franchises in some way through mobile games or reboots or something.

So theres only 19 spots left on the current UI. Theres room for 20 more spots down the road. So with the current set up theres 39 heroes left. Theres currently 37 heroes in the game as is. Theres what... about 7 models intended for use down the road so far?

It's safe to assume we will get the monk and wizard as well as they've added the other diablo 3 classes. I really hope we get some diablo 1 and 2 characters in more than just skin. The Druid would be nice

Kel'thuzad is being worked on model wise. I assume Mengsk is nearing finish.

Monk would fit nice as Diablo support (what it desperately needs). Wizard idk specifically because we have 2 range assassins that fill a similar slot. It might be a skin for like Jaina (sorceress from D2 anyways).

Flemeth is a human (well sort of), not a dragon. She can just turn into one when she feels like it.

And I don't really care that much, I dunno why I got so emotional about it. Dragon Aspects are probably super far down the list.

Though you reminded me that I've been meaning to change my avatar.

I get that, I just think it's silly. Even in WoW I thought it was kind of silly, though I think there it was more because the dragon forms were kind of cumbersome to communicate with I guess. Or I dunno. I really don't get it.

Eh, I kinda like it. His face is kinda weird looking, but that was just Rocksteady being odd. It's weirdly zoomed out too.

Not really a huge fan of the look they've given him in Arkham Knight. Looking through images, people just completely fail at giving him an attractive face...

I wonder who we're getting after Crusader. I hope it's Mengsk. We're due for another SC hero.

It makes him seem more demon like. Before he just felt like a monster.

As obsessed as I was about D2 in its' time, I can't quite get used to non-femme Diablo.
