“Diablo” players are hyped to know that a new DLC update by Blizzard Entertainment is in store for them. Thankfully information regarding the entitled “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer,” was given by the higher ups based on questions on what should they expect.

According to Game Rant, “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer” lead FX designer Julian Love, Senior Game Designer Travis Day along with Community Manager Brandy Camel turned to Facebook to answer the questions regarding the update. Yet, they already gave a head’s up that they would not discuss the price and launch date of the update.

They said that the Necromancers to be commanders of the dead that would be featured in the “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer” update would indeed differ from the Witch Doctors. Blizzard Entertainment then wants to differentiate the two classes so poison spells and the Iron Maiden skill on its gameplay was removed.

Auto World News also reported that Julian Love already has a new female Necromancer designed out just before the decision to make the “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer.” Yet, no gameplay for the female Necromancer was announced just that fans should watch out for her debut.

Day also said that Blood Golems would be returning in the update. He said that "Julian actually showed off one that was a work-in-progress at Blizzcon, with the Blood Golem because he's freaking cool, so we're going to bring him forward." The trio also revealed that four or five new types of Golems are being developed for the “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer."

Mic also pointed that the Necromancer would be accompanied with an in-game pet. There are also two additional character slots on the update. PC users are also told to have two additional stash tabs. Necromancer class on “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer” are also described to have abilities like Bone Spear, Siphon Blood and Blood Rush to teleport.

It was also noted by the publication that PC users would need to ensure that they have “Diablo 3” and “Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls” in order to access the “Diablo 3: Rise of the Necromancer” update. The case goes the same for Xbox One or PlayStation 4 users but it was mentioned that the “Ultimate Evil Edition” would be enough compared to PC users.
