    Teaser From One of D3's Biggest Chinese Fan Sites
    A banner on one of China's biggest D3 fan sites, burning up to reveal what is supposed to be an expansion teaser, was pointed to us by DamienJohn. The burnt area is getting wider every day and right now, on Day 6, we can already spot cathedral windows sneaking up on the background.
    Of course, this could simply be nothing major at all or even a creative way for the site to introduce its own redesign, but only time (and people working on said site) can tell the truth.
    Check out the progress in the images bellow and if you have more information about the site's teasing project, let us know in the comments!

    Looks like it's opening to reveal that spectral looking stuff. Almost seems like an angel's wings, albeit very ghostly looking.

    Looks like the windows of the High Heavens' structure to me.

    Is it possible to allow Youtube videos to be played in fullscreen directly on Diablofans? I don't like having to go to the video on YT to watch fullscreen.

    Sure it has. It changed last night at 9.30 PM AEST (my time in Australia) and has been changing every night at that same time. So the next change should be in about 2 1/2 hours.

    LOL. Are you being serious? This image could be anything. It could just be smoke coming out from recently put out candles.
    Behind the last paper bit there is probably a trollface.
    Make your peace...Quickly!

    It is, however, interesting that what does seem to be something halo-shaped, wasn't blurred, but now is. I'm not saying it has to be Imperius, but it's something.

    The structure looks heavenly, whatever's in the lower right corner looks more hell-ish. But Diablo already attacked the high heavens, so maybe this time, the angels attack hell...? Or maybe it will show a corrupted Imperius :D

    Even if it's fully revealed, it might still yield an interesting debate. May you remember this guy:

    I may be sitting with a tin foil hat on here , but why would anyone imply that something that is not directly from Blizzard?? is a "Expansion Teaser"
    Why would it show on a fansite and not the official Blizz site?
    Source that actually shows it's from Blizzard itself , and not just user made? .... I mean after all ... it's "Just" a fansite , even though it might be the biggest fan site they have.

    Diablo will be reborn on the console in September. The Book of Tyrael will be relesed in October. That is all.

    Well this is only my take on it, but I'm taking from the news post here on Diablofans (I don't know how to read chinese) that the site has claimed that it is a teaser. So that then begs the question, if they are indeed the biggest D3 site in China, why would they risk their credibility for something that isn't real. Or simply, why would they lie?

    With how Blizz treats the Asian WoW crowd, it's not far fetched that they would give the teaser to a news site over there.

    Moreover, doing so starts this big ol' internet-wide hunt for answers, which is ultimately damn good PR. We already got a teaser on the EU/US sites ("Reaper of Souls"). Viral campaigns like these create hype and debates, which again, is good PR.

    But that's just my take on it.

    People need to relax. Good on DamienJohn for finding it. Maybe it's a teaser, maybe it's not? Either way it looks interesting so lets all sit back and watch it slowly reveal itself :cheers:
    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."

    Yeah agree on that one , why would they lie about it, it could indeed be for PR , maybe asia is getting some love this time....
    Then again i'd rather see something official about it like the page on reaper ( that is more confirmation for me than anything ).
    I mean mmo-champ pulled off a hoax with the wow xpac name reservation ( apparantly anyone could do that on any name without any consequences ).

    So yeah , guess we'll just have to wait and see what gamescom brings this week =)

    PS: I should really do something about my signature =/
