Two words: magic missile. As it stands so far, we’ll be playing a Wizard when the game finally releases. No question. Unless Blizzard pulls something a little “darker” out of the hat in the meantime. So awesome. We haven’t been this pumped about a game since growing out of shorts.

This is who you’re dealing with:
Owing to my lack of tolerance for those who would use magic towards their own nefarious ends, many have assumed that I am averse to the practice of the magical arts on a philosophical level. Nothing could be farther from the truth. My quarrel is with those sorcerers who dismiss the ancient traditions and teachings – teachings that have been honed over millennia in order to preserve respect for authority and the rule of law.
Recently the youth of Caldeum have fallen prey to the overblown stories of just such a delinquent wizard. That is correct: I used the uncouth term wizard, not sorcerer. It seems that even the title of a civilized magic wielder is too restrictive for this young upstart. Through my contacts at the Yshari Sanctum of the mage clans, I am one of the few who actually know the truth behind the rumors now sweeping our streets regarding this hellion who flaunts her magic irresponsibly.
We’re so excited we feel a little sick. Go. Now.

The Wizard, just revealed at BlizzCon 08, joins the previously announced Witch Doctor and Barbarian classes.
Apparently, Mike Morhaime’s speech has already ended, but we’re waiting for more news. Keep it locked.

Update 2: Blizzard just posted seven images and six Wizard movies!
Update: First direct-feed video of the Wizard clas just got posted.
BlizzCon 08 is kicking off in California as we type, and the first bit of news out of the gate is the Wizard class for Diablo III.
Tristram is overrun with the undead, and there are plenty of horror-movie moments. You spot a struggling villager in the dark background, and he gets pulled underground by something unseen. Then blood spurts out of the hole and his dismembered arm flies out. Pretty darn cool. The zombies are very low level and easy to take down with our female Wizard, who has a very nice ranged magic missile sort of attack (spell names forthcoming from us when we aren’t hurried), and she has a close-range lightning attack that can save your butt when you’re in the thick of it.
Top of our list. Get to it.
