Diablo III Items Revealed

Blizzard has opened up the items section on the Diablo community site. There for all to see are the basic items as well as information on the base stats for magic, rare, and legendary items. A lot of time could be spent looking over all the types and other miscellaneous items such as gems, dyes, and crafting materials.

Handy features such as sorting by name, required level, and important stats (such as armor, DPS, speed) are provided to ensure we can quickly find what we are looking for. Also provided is a text filter for when you already know what you want to find.


Diablo III Officially Delayed; Wasn’t this expected?

We were all hoping for a 2011 release, including Blizzard. Alas, newly released information tells us that early 2012 is now the target. Blizzard is well known for not providing exact release dates and pushing the final release back as far as far as possible, all in an effort to provide well polished and nearly perfect games.

Official Word: “Soon” Was Too Soon

Game Guide & Skill Calculator

Blizzard has revealed their online Game Guide recently. It promises to provide everything we need to slay Diablo’s minions. It provides information on the character classes and all their skills + runestone effects. There is also a section for the Followers, for the Artisans, for Items, and for the Acts. I assume information on the monsters themselves will be found in the Acts section. However, a lot of this information is still not revealed. Everything is hush hush to not spoil the story and all the discoveries we are all excited to make!

What is available is a Skill Calculator! You can play around and select skills for your characters and share your builds. This can be extremely useful for anyone wanting to plan ahead, or those who don’t get into beta. I know I will be using it in conjunction with the Character Builds section here, so we can easily share which builds we have tested.

PayPal will be my Pal

The money managing service that will “function like PayPal, but is not necessarily PayPal” has now been confirmed: And yes, its PayPal. Its likely we will all have a PayPal account soon enough in order to cash-out from Diablo’s real money auction house.


Diablo 3 Beta

Diablo III has entered its Friends and Family beta testing stage. Live streams and many youtube videos are already up and waiting to be watched. These are exciting times, lots of information has been revealed and closed beta is right around the corner. We are now that much closer to a release!
