Diablo III: Female Monk And Wizard Visual Updates
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
In new posts on the Diablo III forums, Facebook page, and Twitter site, community manager Bashiok has revealed new information about the game. This time the discussion centered around the visual look for female Monk and Wizard class characters. Diablo III is the long awaited upcoming return to Blizzard's action RPG series.
Bashiok: There was a big push on armor sets in the milestone before the break, which included a new female wizard unarmored look. Also sometimes referred to as a class' "naked" look. They're not actually without clothing, but it's the look of a character when wearing no pieces of armor. - Diablo FacebookVisit the Blizzplanet page below to read more.
Blizzplanet: Wizard And Monk Updates
Bashiok: It wasn't a total rework or anything, these things rarely are. It was essentially a color shift from red to a sort of muted mustard color (which doesn't sound great but it looks awesome), and then a texture cleanup removing some elements and just letting the whole thing read a lot better. It looks a lot more like an unarmored look now, in my opinion. Before it was a bit busy and ... I think you also sort of have to have a very minimal naked look so that upgrades feel that much more "powerful". If you don't notice a visual change on the character with a new piece of armor then it's kind of like, what's the point? She had too much going on before. Now she looks like... haha, it kind of looks like she's about to go to the gym. To kill demons.
Also the female monk got a haircut not terribly long ago. She's looking good. Much closer match to the concepts now. - Source: Battle.net Forums
Bashiok: The monk skill trees are being fleshed out in high level design concepts and nitty-gritty skill specifics. - Source: Diablo Twitter
