Diablo News Diablo 3 Necromancer being removed from PTR

The Necromancer has been in testing for a few days now and it’s received a fairly mixed reception from those that have stuck with it. Blizzard has now decided to pull the class from testing for a while.

If you’ve been watching any of the streams recently then you will have seen comments of “I’m bored already” to “this is cool”. The Necromancer on the PTR is by no means ready or feature complete but the reception has been mixed with some streamers that were granted access dropping it pretty quickly.

There are obviously issues Blizzard need to resolve so they have decided to take the Necromancer off the PTR for while.

As an update to the first point, we will be taking down the Necromancer class tomorrow, April 18 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. After this time, we fully encourage you to explore and test some of our other Patch 2.6.0 features, such as Challenge Rifts and the new zones that have been added to Act II and IV.

We’ll update this thread once the Necromancer is available for testing again.

This probably wasn’t planned and perhaps Blizzard pushed this out a little early.

If you have been watching the action what do you think of what you’ve seen so far?
