    It's only just released now? Ive had a copy of all the tracks for ages. I have to admit i did download them It's really good music but i dont think i would pay $50 for it. There is only 3/4 songs diablo related. Same with the cards only 2/3 are diablo.

    If 3/4 are Diablo related songs and 2/3 of the cards Diablo related, that's pretty good!! Especially since it is Blizzard Entertainment music (i.e. Warcraft, Diablo, SC).

    I wouldn't be expecting that, especially since Diablo is not by any means their most successful and popular branch. But you can find a full list of the songs included here: http://diablofans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15709&highlight=echoes+war.

    Yeah, there are 3 Diablo cards. But only 2 of them are from Diablo3, one of them is of the D2 version of Diablo. Still a pretty nice set overall.
