Diablo’s 25th anniversary announcements at BlizzCon have been welcomed by some players and blasted by others. While a significant portion of the content — namely, the Darkening of Tristram Diablo-in-Diablo III update — will be freely available to players who own Diablo III: Reaper of Souls or the Ultimate Evil Edition, the Necromancer pack will come at a price, and that has some folks raging.
Personally, I’m a bit surprised the studio isn’t charging for both. Diablo III’s complete lack of monetization since the demise of the auction hall has long seemed to doom it to second-class status at Blizz. But I understand being annoyed. People want to buy full expansions, not class packs with a predictable array of semi-useless fluff cosmetics (a pet, character slots, extra stash, a portrait, a pennant, a banner, and a banner sigil). The Necro is cool, but people want to pay for real content.
So what’s the price? That we don’t know yet. Blizzard says it’s “not ready to announce a price just yet.” So let’s sort it out in today’s Leaderboard. How much do you expect to pay?
