    Diablo 15 Year Anniversary
    Don't forget, Bashiok posted letting us know something 'fun' would happen, but a week after the anniversary so keep your eyes open!


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    15 yrs ago today the fight against Hell itself began. Now with #D3 on the doorstep of 2012, we thank you for making this possible. #Diablo15


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    #Diablo15 year anniversary is in 9 days! (We have a little something fun planned for the week after.) How are you going to celebrate?





    Bookshelves
    CherubDown asked Bashiok about other items possibly dropping from bookshelves. It seems blizzard wants to keep them "fun" and not be mandatory to click each one.


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    @Diablo @Bashiok Any chance book shelves will ever drop anything other than potions, scrolls of companion, or pages of training?

    @CherubDown @Bashiok Unlikely. It's the difference between 'fun bonus' and 'you need to click on every single bookshelf'.




    Followers Can Use a Few More Weapons
    It looks like with patch 8, the Enchantress and Scoundrel can equip a few more weapons.


    IAR_ScoundrelCannotUseWeapon
    Your Scoundrel can only use two-handed crossbows or bows.

    IAR_EnchantressCannotUseWeapon
    Your Enchantress can only use staves, two-handed swords, two-handed maces, or two-handed axes





    Behind-the-Scenes Loot at the Book of Cain
    James Gurney, one of the artists involved with the Book of Cain, has posted a short video of some of his work on the book, the Pandemonium Fortress.





    Beta Screenshots
    We have some new screenshots of the beta for you today as well!

    Looking foward to the next few weeks. Luckily school starts in a few days so that will help the time fly right by. I don't care now if a release date wont come this week. But if Blizz says there will be fun, I sure can't wait for that. Maybe a Diablo themed bounce castle?
    I don't always burn. But when I do, I use hellfire.

    Good job raising the bar to high, now anything other than that will be a massive disappointment in my opinion.

    A lot of people may be hoping for a release date, a beta invite, or an announcement they're having 50% off all Diablo items on the blizzard store. I am no exception to these people.
    Bashiok - Blizzard Representative - 08/01/2011 -"So how many skill combinations are there now? Well taking into account 6 active skills, all the rune combinations, and 3 passives we currently expect each class to have roughly 2,285,814,795,264 different build combinations."

    "Hey, I thought you'd like the witty irony of grub-on-glowie violence!"

    probably they wait till the 4th january and the decision in South Korea and announce an release date after that - late february or ealry march is still my guess

    I'll celebrate by learning more about blizzard's marketing tactics. :kiss:

    Haha! Ever seen the doorstep to the White House? thats Blizz's first step
    Blizzard used to care about releasing Diablo III, then they all took an arrow in the knee...

    I don't know about anyone else, but all of Blizzards repeated hype attempts are getting a little irritating/annoying at this point. It's not like they're actually going to release anything we all want to know (Aka, Release Date), they never do. The quote "little something fun" is probably just another contest or wallpaper.
