Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Quick Look – Crusader gameplay video

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls

By on November 25, 2013 at 12:27 pm

We’ve been plugging away at the Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls beta over the weekend, crushing skulls and smiting heretics as the new Crusader class. While we were ploughing through the ruins of Tristram yet again, we happened to record some footage at the same time. Here, below, you can see the Crusader in action including skills like Punish, Slash, Shield Bash, Sweep Attack, Shield Glare and Iron Skin.

Interestingly despite the obvious Diablo 2 Paladin comparisons, the Crusader actually plays very differently to the Paladin (and doesn’t have that strange prancing walk animation either!). Check it out.

Looks good. I’ve been enjoying Diablo 3 again (on PC this time) but will never, I imagine, actually finish the game. Reaper is, to me, like X-Com Enemy Within… games/add-ons that I purchase more because I appreciate their potential rather than games I’ll actually play all the way through.

Also, excellent work on the new GoN-vid title image, it looks excellent. Who did that for you?

 

A very handsome community member volunteered to make it for us!

 

It looked like the game was lagging during the first part of fighting… then I saw the red ping bar LOL.

I love this game to bits but don’t like the lag…
So I can’t play Hardcore if I keep getting killed by lag.

That’s funny, I don’t remember making it…

 

RoS is shaping up very well, although I haven’t tried the Crusader yet(tonight!).

I’m loving bounties/rifts and the new enchanting system works really well, people need to remember that it’s beta though so some streams going on have people exploiting bugged skills(Crusader has one that’s very very bugged) so it’s not as easy as some make it.

If anyone wants to see one of the new Legendary ‘Gold rains from the sky’ affix I made a vid of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfzZuxszOHs Also got a nice new bow at the end which I’ve been testing. I think Blizz did well in ‘build changing’ legendaries.

 

If you still look for a beta key then try reaperofsoulsbetakeys.com, that is where I have mine from too! :D
