Heroes Portrait and Pennant
Diablo and Heroes of the Storm are getting some cross game promotional rewards if you play both games. For those who own Diablo 3 and play Heroes, they'll get access to the Lord of Terror for free there, and for those who get to level 12 on Heroes will get an exclusive portrait and pennant on Diablo 3. Read below.

Immediately following the next Heroes patch, any player with a Diablo III license on their Battle.net account will receive the Diablo Hero in Heroes of the Storm for free. Simply log in to Heroes of the Storm to claim the Lord of Terror and start unleashing hell on your foes. Don’t wait though— this offer ends at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 8!
The cross-universe rewards don’t end there. Diablo III players who reach level 12 in Heroes of the Storm will also receive a unique pennant and portrait frame in Diablo III for PC and Mac. In addition, reaching level 70 with a Seasonal Hero in Season 4 and beyond gives you the shadowy Malthael’s Phantom mount in Heroes of the Storm!
All of these goodies can be yours, nephalem—but are you brave enough to take on both Sanctuary and the Nexus? There’s only one way to find out! We’ll see you in the Nextuary (see what we did there?).

Currently, our plan is to include powers granted via Kanai's Cube on the player profile. We do not have any additional details to share about this feature just yet, but we do appreciate the feedback and wanted to let you know that it's on the way.
ZiggyD's Dev Interview
I have a short 20 minute interview opportunity with Lead Designer, Kevin Martens and Associate Designer, John Yang this Thursday and as always I'd like to give you guys a chance to voice the questions you most want to hear answered.
I'll do my best to work in the best targeted, most interesting and most upvoted questions from this post.
They'll be most interested in questions around the 2.3.0 patch so we're likely to get better responses focusing on that.
Look forward to reading your repsonses, thanks!
