Diablo Class Death Knight by ZeroNis Diablo Class Death Knight by ZeroNis
A submission I've done for a competition over at Diablofans.com. They gave me a free ticket to Blizzcon last year! So for this concept, I decided to combine the two missing classes from last year's build of Diablo 3, which were Necromancer and Paladin. So this is what I would imagine as a Death Knight.

I would like to take some design process knowledge I learned from Art Center and re tackle this concept in the future.

Necro and Paladin were always my favorite classes. And this just speaks to me so much since I always made a summoner, so I put very few skill points into bone/poison or curse, giving me a huge army, but nothing to do personally, sometimes making me feel like a lazy bastard. Zeal, at least Sacrifice, my own aura, plus another stacked on from the Act2 desert mercs. Beyond overpowered and I would be loving every minute of it.

I would chose this character out of a line up in a heart beat.

Grrreat work, the sword is AMAZING!

You did a very nice job on the armor and the green light :clap:

This guy was heavily influence by Auron from FFX wasn't he? XD

I love it, but when it comes to bladed weapons necromancers are know for using scythes so just change the sword to a scythe and make his hair longer and it's perfect

It's a paladin necro mix, so swords are completely feasable.

I know, but a scythe would ne much more badass, that or a cross between the sword in his hands and Sonja's sword from Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Death Knight? Ergh...

WoW can be that gay, but not D3. I won't allow it...

Actually, I think they were trying combine the Assassin's martial arts tree with the Paladin when they made the monk. As for the Necromancer, I think they were try to combine him with the Druid when they made the Which Doctor. I wish they kept the Necromancer though.

I've heard that Blizzard is considering bringing back more of the classes from D2 for expansions, and I'm guessing they'd pick Necromancer if they do that

I hope so. The Necromancer may not have been the most powerful class, but I think it was one of the most fun to play.

Necromancer was fun, but Assassin was always my favorite

Yes, the Assassin (in my opinion) is one of the best classes in the game. I like the Necromancer because there's nothing like having an army follow you around.

The army was fun, Druid was pretty fun for the same reason, but it sounds like they just made Druid into Witch Doctor for the new game

Just love love love the the green glows there! :D And the armor is just yum as well! :D

But personally I think this would look somewhat more interesting/engaging if it was a young "Death Knight", not quite so aged :aww:

Very nice design here - I love the weapon. His feet seem to be pointed in awkward angles, though, I don't know many people who stand with their feet splayed like that.

That armor and sword design are better by far than anything the Blizz designers implemented for wep and armor designs from Naxx through Icecrown with regards to DK-usable items. I think they need to fire some folks and give you a job. :-)
