In his review of the ongoing Diablo 4 Beta, he wrote that all three character classes initially available in the beta were “pretty good” and said of the Sorcerer: It’s based on fire, electricity, and ice attacks, but I’ve found that it’s better to control large groups of enemies than to inflict massive damage on one enemy (each detonation brings his Chain his Lightning his attack to attack 6 enemies, etc.). Dealing elemental damage, freezing enemies in your truck, or setting them on fire is great. There are even various death effects. “
It also called the Necromancer “one of our favorites.” “The fantasy of raising a civilian militia and having withering and death on your evil side is wonderfully realized, and once you get on the dastardly train, all you want to play is Necromancer,” said reviewer Travis Northup. writing.
In the six days Diablo IV was available, players put in over 61 million hours of gameplay. This equates to just over 7,000 years of his life, and over 2 million players have won the Beta Wolf Pack.
