Transmog is currently my favorite and probably the most balanced thing to come out so far. I would like them to keep the cost or even lower it a bit more so people would have a lot more flexibility when designing the way they want their character to look.Posted in: News & Announcements

Seems like this is a case of "we will see when it's out or positively confirmed by a blue".

They should at the very least even out the spacing to have 5 full stash tabs so it actually looks "complete". Rather then make it feel like something is missing.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Reaper of Souls Expansion Highlights: Adventure Mode, Bounties, Nephalem Rifts, Blood Shards and Gambling, Blue Postsposted a message onEven though this is kind of a logical fallacy, let's go with the 6-month rule for Blizzard betas. Note that these are just my own predictions and could be definitely be wrong.Posted in: News & Announcements
RoS beta started last week in mid-november, that indicates a possible 6 months before the release of RoS.
Sometime around May (Most likely May 20th to coincide with the 2-year anniversary of Diablo 3 Vanilla's release, I know that technically May 20th is not the exact date of D3's release, but it's the closest Tuesday).
Patch 2.0(Pre-Expansion Patch)
Now for the pre-expansion patch, Lyrilla started it could happen at anytime, but more likely around the 2-month mark prior to the release of RoS. This make it sounds to happen around mid March which also coincides with around the shutdown of the Auction Houses. So very likely on the March 18th Auction House shut off date.
PTR for Patch 2.0
Obviously there is going to be PTR before Patch 2.0 comes out and it has also been confirmed that there will be one. Typically based on D3's beta history PTR last roughly a month prior to going live, now with a big patch like 2.0 it could very well scale higher then this, maybe even 2 months or more.
Based on my earlier prediction of a mid-march release of Patch 2.0, I would further predict that Patch 2.0 PTR would be out around the 1-2 months mark prior. So this could be anytime in mid-January through mid-February.
RoS Beta, Expansion -> closed beta and possibly open beta.
First off, I actually kind of doubt that RoS would ever go open beta, but Blizzard could very well follow D3 vanilla and have an open beta weekend like they did in the past but very unlikely a full blown open beta.
Since RoS beta is already out but only to Friends, Family and Media it is still in the early stages and will eventually go towards a more expanded closed beta, essentially letting more people in who have opt-in via battle.net and later also give away keys for fansites such as Diablofans to give out.
I predict that they will probably start expanding RoS beta around December-January.

Public Test Region Access Also Coming Soon
Around the same time we begin our Reaper of Souls Closed Beta, we will also be launching our Public Test Region (PTR) for Patch 2.0.1! This patch will feature updates including Paragon 2.0, Loot 2.0, our new difficulty system, the addition of Clans and Communities, as well as balancing and tuning for all five Diablo III classes.
Anyone with the Battle.net Desktop App and Diablo III license will be able to participate in PTR testing. If don't already have the Battle.net App, you can download and install it by clicking the button below.
PTR coming so too, but does this mean we are forced to use the Desktop App in order to participate in PTR?

I'm personally not a big PvP person, so it doesn't really effect me that much. I however free very sorry for those that were patiently waiting and expecting PvP with RoS, guess PvP for Diablo 3 is essentially vaporware.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The big question I have though, is on ladders(seasons). I would be very disappointed if they don't have ladders with RoS, not to the point that would prevent me from buying it, but it'll definitely limit my play time with Diablo if it ships without it.

BlizzCon Recap: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls; RoS Curse Interview; WoW: Warlords of Draenor; Heroes of the Storm; Hearthstoneposted a message onPosted in: News & AnnouncementsQuote from ktulu85All legendary and set items being soul-bound is a terrible idea. Don't kill trading. Killing the auction house is good, killing the social aspect of trading is bad.
If any this is really going to be what happens when RoS ships...
Then they pretty much went full transition since launch, from essentially a free market and progressively get more and more closed, from some soul bounds to removal of auction house and now to soul bound of all legendaries?
I think they need balance, I generally believe that removal of the AH was for the better, not really sure about current soul-bound items but that doesn't mean we should go from one extreme to the other.
If legendaries are all sound-bound (even if it's just top end) then what do we trade?
Soul-bound items: demonic essences, organs, keys, nephilim rift keys (from RoS Demo), now all legendaries/sets (I'm assuming legendary plans too?, possibly some of the new crafting materials?
Non Soul-bound items: We are getting more and more limited in what we can trade now... gold, lower tier gems, low end crafting materials, rares (rares might actually not even be end game items anymore since now legendaries can roll at any level and have unique affixes that rares don't have)
