It’s not been made that clear with all the focus on Loot 2.0 and Paragon 2.0 and the Crusader, but Blizzard has confirmed that not only will the original five classes get new skills up to level 70, but their current skills will get an upgrade/polish/rebalance as well.
We think the expansion is a great time for it, so we’ll be giving all of the existing classes (Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor, and Wizard) skill updates in Reaper of Souls. We’re looking to make adjustments that improve the experience for skills that are currently underused, or have balance issues. These changes will likely be part of the pre-expansion patch, but new skills will require players to purchase the expansion to access them.
Good news there. And not to repeat what we said in the last Forum Watch, but we’ve got new threads asking for player brainstorm/feedback on what new skills (passive and active) the classes need in RoS: Barbarian, Monk, Demon Hunter, Wizard, and Witch Doctor.
