In the past battles with Diablo and his Brethren, many righteous warriors have fallen. Many of such warriors were resurrected through the Prime Evils power and forced to fight for that which they despised. However, once the Prime Evils influence left the world of Sanctuary these fallen warriors were once again laid to rest.

But something has given rise to their slumber and they now walk the world once again. Only now their own will and memory are with them. What is the cause behind there rise? Will they be the noble warriors who have died, or embrace their powers of undeath?

King Leoric Could be one such Hollow men who embraced Undeath versus Redemption.

Class Design[edit]

The playstyle of this character would mostly be like of a ghost. The most noticeable skill he would be able to do would be to possess his enemies and use them to fight their own brethren. He could also be a bit of a buffer that is able to project his auras onto his teammates. He could buff and debuff the enemies and use their own kind against each other.

He's more suited as a crowd control. Not crowd control in the typical mage nuker style. But more of trickery and distractions while doing his damage.

Skill Trees[edit]

The hollow man has three types of power at his disposal:


The Possession skill tree deals with the possession of your enemies. You can use this power to create a tank meant to last, or you can use skills designed to destroy a foe from the inside.

The Haunting skill Tree is designed to cause more harm and confusion to the enemy using your ghostly aura. Skills in this tree are meant to keep your enemies confused and at a distance. Some skills act like an active Aura to help bring the stuff of nightmares to the nightmare of hell.
