DiabloHappy.com has published an interview with Blizzard Entertainment's Bill Roper, Senior Producer on the Diablo II Expansion Set. The interview covers a lot of information on the Diablo II add-on includes the new Druid and Assassin classes:
My favorite Druid spell is Dire Wolf. Running around as a half-man / half-wolf creature and attacking the denizens of Diablo and Baal with razor sharp claws is very fun. When you add in a pack of summoned wolves following you around, it is an amazingly fun experience.
In regards to the Assassin, we have recently added the concept of linked martial arts skills that makes playing her incredibly different than any other character class. The basic concept is that you have one set of skills that can be used to set-up or charge-up the character’s martial arts abilities. Then a second set of finishing moves can be used to release that charge.
