Diablo 3

Last week Blizzard announced that the Diablo 3 Necromancer beta test would be starting soon and this evening the test began.

A select pool of testers have been granted access to the test and more players will be added as the test progresses. Assuming you have opted in and have been granted access, Blizzard explained how to get up and running on the test servers.

Many players don’t like taking part in the tests but a full list of the Necromancer’s skill are available to view now. These include everything that’s in the game so far and it’s worth noting that many of these are likely to change as the test progresses.

The patch notes are quite compact for the time being.

Diablo 3 Necromancer  Closed Beta PATCH 2.6.0 – v2.6.0.44923


  • New Feature: Challenge Rifts
    • Explore new builds created by fellow players in a weekly static dungeon. You can access these through the main screen, similar to Adventure Mode and Campaign Mode.
      • Note: New Challenge Rifts may be available more frequently during the beta.


  • New Class: Necromancer
    • As a master of the dark arts, you wield the powers of life and death necessary to restore the Balance! Necromancers are powerful spell casters who lay waste to their enemies using curses and reanimation—along with an obedient cadre of pets. This new class employs a controlled gameplay style using the raw materials of life: blood and bone.


  • New Zones: The Moors & The Temple of the Firstborn
    • The fog-enshrouded Moors and the darkened Temple of the Firstborn can be explored in Adventure Mode through a new waypoint on the Act 2 map.
  • Set Dungeons
    • The user interface has been updated to better explain tier completion requirements.
    • With this, the basic completion tier must be finished within the given time limit.
  • Bounties
    • Four new Waypoints have appeared in Act IV. Each one has bounties to complete. These Realms of Fate are the unintended consequences of the battle between the nephalem and Diablo in the High Heavens.

If you have not made it into the beta test yet, don’t worry, your account might still be granted access.
