With how slow Blizzard works, I wouldn't be surprised if it's released around BlizzCon, or delayed to next year


Have the feeling that Necromancer will be released on Season 11, which it will be mid of 2017.

I'd say it's more likely to be season 12 personally.
It's a new day. Make sure to take advantage of that.

Found an answer guys. Chatted with a D3 Reddit moderator and he said there aren't any Set items for Necro in the beta. That sucks, wanted to check out the endgame Necro builds

Hahahaha, that would be crazy. Though tbh, I'd say October at the very latest. It would be kinda embarrassing if it goes past Blizzcon and they go like "hey remember the stuff we teased last year? Here's more footage!".

They probably don't want that to happen, so I'm guessing release will be earlier than that.

Yeah it could be, since they said they still have to develop not only the rest of the Necromancer, but the rest of patch 2.6 too.

It'll likely have a PTR, to give players who didn't get in the closed beta a chance to play the class before deciding if they wanna buy it.

Yep I stand corrected. I got confused because some of the original stuff was listed as 2.5 is what was out beginning of year and then Necro DLC is later in year.

There will be no PTR for Necro. The closed beta is to only test the skills which is why there are no set items right now. There will be a PTR for 2.6 which adds those other things, challenge rifts, and such that were mentioned. Unfortunately there will be no trying out of Necro without buying. Just how dumb do people think Blizz is? I don't remember a PTR for RoS.

Is the necro dlc going to be a full expansion, or is it just a character addon?

There will likely be some new areas to furnish the story and what not but it won't be RoS sized by any means.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.

Though, it seems like the testing being done right now is just aesthetics (look and feel) of the Necro, right? And maybe the Passive Skills too. Because it's hard to imagine how they'd balance Necro skills numerically without Sets nowadays.

Like, an analogy would be how would you know if Multishot or Rapid Fire are balanced skills before adding UE, and then adding UE?

Challenge rifts are on the beta, right now they're super easy. The rewards seem to be a bunch of crafting mats and bloodshards.
Someone claimed to pick up the set items by opening an old Haedrig's gift. You can link them in chat, but the set bonuses haven't been implemented.
It's very clear that the skills aren't meant to be balanced right now. Though, some look useless at any number. But, I'm pretty sure the point is to test that things are working at all. There's a fair amount of skills and passives that just haven't been coded and they need to check that nothing else is broken.

Wait, I thought they said late 2017? Are they pushing up the expected release date?

Most likely beta for skills/mechanics testing (season 10)-> ptr with sets and more mechanics testing for ironing out little things (season 11)-> release (season 12). Pretty much falls into line with proper testing and their expected release time window.
