Bashiok has been very busy responding fan feedback after the Diablo III Beta Press Event content was made public. Only 10 Character Slots Friskydingo: 10 Character Limit? Worst thing to happen to Diablo3. Bashiok: You knew that was the case with respecs. Funny enough, even with respecs, leveling characters is fun. There are plenty of games with respecs where people will level many, many characters of the same class, just for the fun of it. And without anything really 'tied' to a character, it's easy enough to dump all items to the shared stash, delete the character, and start a new one.
