    This system does away with the idea of the towns and camps, like the ones in Diablo II, as being the safe havens and last bastions of safety. But I suppose that the caravan could still be this since it does follow you around in the game-world.

    I don't know, it just doesn't feel or sound like Diablo to me.

    Um... aren't there like two in the entire game?

    This seems like a greatly reduced amount of information which is discussed on the Gametrailers video

    Diablo 3 tops my most wanted list of all games - yes, even Telara. I spent just waaaay too much time in Diablo and Diablo 2 and will do so in Diablo 3 as well. Good times! I appreciate Blizzard doing their games right and all but holy frig just get the friggin game out the door already!

    Same, likely followed by the desire to know more about Blizz's second MMOG. I was expecting more info to come out about it last BlizzCon, but it's looking more like this BlizzCon will be the 2nd MMOG reveal. (I still expect something close to Shadowrun or possibly a Steampunkish Supernatural kind of world.)

    1 for each act, and there are 5 acts in Lord of Destruction expansion. But the point of the towns were that the people that you found there were survivors of untold terror and gruesome raidings. They banded together to keep demons and what have you at bay. They all had their back stories and roles in town. In my opinion, the caravan system goes against this. I know that each member of the caravan is part of the story with their own individual lore, but it just doesn't seem the same.

    Regardless of this, I'm still going to try the game when it comes out because like Cutter, I grew up on Diablo II and essentially it was my first MMOG, action RPG.

    It's not supposed to. If you watch all the parts of the movies I linked it explains it. They felt that towns slowed things down too much, and that you were 'just passing through' during your adventures. Having the crafters follow you on your journey 'keeps things moving'. They didn't want you to hang out in towns and keep going back.

    I suppose I don't like change then. I do like the artisan idea and the more in-depth customization. Got tired of looking like everyone in D2. You have shone me the light rabb1t !

    D3 is one of the top 4 in my list - together with Civ 5, Elemental and of course Rift!

    OMtG! I would kill, or at least wound, a good many people for a good Shadowrun game.
