    Update: The new info is here!


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    A few more changes have made their way in to Diablo III beta patch 10, including the removal of Scrolls of Companion and Scrolls of Reforging, and we’ll be updating the patch notes to reflect that.

    In both cases these are features we felt were underdeveloped and just not quite good enough for the game in their current state. The companion pets felt like they were mandatory to maximize play efficiency and some of the pets were too cutesy for the gritty, dark world of Sanctuary. Neither of those are issues we felt like we could solve without a lot of additional work, and we’re trying to close in on a solid release date for the game, not move further away. When weighing these systems against releasing the game, we decided to cut these scrolls and stay on track for the game’s release.

    We think we can make companion pets into a much cooler system (both mechanically and visually), and evolve the reforging scrolls into a more meaningful system at some point in the future. For the time being, they will not be in the initial release of the game.


    New Information Coming Soon
    Bashiok posted on twitter saying we should be getting some more info soon as it seems some additional changes snuck into patch 10 (Such as the removal of the DiabloWiki.com - Scroll of Companion Scroll of Companion in the beta)

    Error 3022
    People have been getting Error 3022 when using the AH. Blizzard has posted a quick fix for this error.


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    Hey guys,

    If you are getting Error_3022 when trying to use the Auction House, this is to let you know that Blizzard is working on the issue.

    For now, here is the current work around to get your account working again.

    1. Go to the Battle.net website and log in.
    2. Go to your billing address.
    3. Click Edit when at your billing address.
    4. Do not edit anything and press Save.
    5. Attempt to use the Auction House again.

    For some reason, people with valid billing addresses are being locked out of using the Auction House, even though the Beta is not using your billing address for anything as Beta Bucks aren't real money. This work around should help you guys out.

    the bug report intrigues me

    is that normal to post bug reports like that, i know there is sarcasm in there

    but is there anything else, like a hidden messgae or code to reveal something, like dare i say it 'release date' ( slap me across the face for suggesting such a thing)


    i dont want to start adding up numbers, but its the first i thought of wehn i read it

    seriously could you imagine that post from blizz

    'Runestones look about done, its been hard work getting them the way we wanted them to work but we have got there!
    We hope that you are excited about them as we are, the runestones will be deployed in beta 10 hopefully this weekend'

    Release date inc?! Please??
  • #10
    It's something we knew for a bit, but I guess some people just found out with the tooltip in patch 10.

    I don't agree with it tbh, I know why they have it like that, I understand it, it also won't effect me ( as I was going to do normal first anyway) but I still don't like it =p


    @above
    A release date would be week of feb 5th, or not for awhile is my guess. So soon*

    would it be to optimistic to say that rune/skill systems are the last major hurdle? or am i just clinging to false hope?
  • #12
    Yes! They're perfectionist so the more bugs people find the better the chance it will get released! They want to "put [out] the best possible game" so if people send in the reports to be fixed they will eventually say "okay we've done enough! Ship it"

    EDIT: [out]
    Don`t roll into it!

    Hmm, isn't that old news? I could have sworn Jay Wilson said at Blizzcon '10 or '11 that you'd have to beat normal difficulty before starting a hardcore character. Not that it's not interesting seeing it, in-fact, in the game, just wondering.

    you are pretty much right

    in saying that, i dont play the beta so not 100% ontop of what bugs or changes are left to be done, or blizz keeping certains things hush hush

    but ye thats really thats left, unless.....more changes come about and beta 11 will have a load of stuff to test

    i doubt it tho

    it feels like end production now, i mean proper the end

    i actully do agree

    and it makes kinda sense, if u are gona make a HC char you will want the most experience you can get, that incl inferno

    i know i would but starting my journey of fear and aprehension

    but in saying that, if inferno is FML hard (hope it is) getting completion may take awhile (maye solo for definite ) it could be a head wrecker

    Nothing surprising about requiring Normal beaten before going hardcore.
    Not only Diablo 2 was that way, but beating Normal is planned to be the introduction to the game. Simply "Hey, this is the game, how you play it and these are the guys you're going to meet. Make sure nothing is unexpected before we throw death at you, so don't blame if you start dying later!".

    About bug reports: they're glad that people is using the beta for it's intended purpose, ie, testing and reporting.
    You can be certain, there's no threshold they'll say "Enought bug fixes, release.". But you can be certain they'll say "We can't release with that bug in."
    Proof? WoW Patch delayed by a week due to serious bug

    As far as beta feels, it seems complete, just with the absence of runestones. I really do feel that's the last major change, and they can release when it's completed =P cmoooon feb 5th
