Blizzcast Questions

Have you ever wanted a chance to ask the Blizzard staff a question about Diablo? Now is your chance! There was a recent post on Twitter and Facebook asking for questions from fans everywhere to be used in the upcoming BlizzCast!


Official Blizzard Quote:



Diablo Looking for a few good Diablo III questions for an upcoming BlizzCast. Reply within the next few hours and your question may be asked!


Official Blizzard Quote:




Diablo We're going to have one of the Diablo III devs answer two or three community questions in an upcoming BlizzCast. If you have a good question, go ahead and reply with your question or questions and it may make it into an upcoming broadcast of BlizzCast. This is a limited time offer... like, the next few hours limited. So get to askin'!


As a community, we will be compiling a list of questions that we want asked, and then use the official Diablofans.com's Twitter account to submit our questions. Hopefully we will receive some answers. So, what questions do you have for Blizzard? Get these questions in quickly because we will be submitting them later today!


A special thanks goes to Chemedeiros for spotting the post. Pass on some rep if you get the chance!

Questions we sent:
Quote from "DiabloFans" »
1. What type of control is planned for pets/mercenaries, if any?

2. If Blizzard are looking to make gold the legitimate currency of the Diablo II economy, why are they removing durability from items, when that is the most obvious gold sink out there?

3. Will all BoE/BoP items be bind to account, so that you can hand them down to your other characters as you find better gear?

4. Can you tell us a few more details concerning the wizard's resource system, "instability"?

5. Will followers (the perminent hirelings) serve any other purpose other than to fight by your side? Will you be able to give them commands?

6. Is a 4 player maximum still the planned limit for multiplayer? Why not increase it to 5 or 6?

7. Is there anything planned as far as lore we've only heard of sparingly, like the elemental planes, Zann Esu Habacalva, the Ether, Zann Esu Hepsheeba, Lord Bareen, and the Vactayan Uprising?

8. What ever happened to Farnham the drunk?

9. How will we know if the chat gem ever stops working?

10. What would be the system for item-based builds and skill-based builds to balance out end-game characters?

11. Any news on LAN availability, and is anything going to cost real money on Bnet2?

12. They mentioned that respeccing is one of those things that could be a good gold sink, but will that be the only cost to respeccing?

13. What is the current build of the PvP system?

14. Are they planning on arenas/ladders?

15. Regarding PvP, are we restricted to 4 player games in it?

    Yeah I've got a question.

    What the hell ever happened to Farnham the drunk? I somehow relate to the guy, not sure why though.

    That, and how will we know if the chat gem ever stops working?

    What would be the system for item-based builds and skill-based builds to balance out, so that we can still make a WWbarb to do well enough in Hell without godly gear, instead of relying a sorceress for MFing.

    I also want to ask about the controls for mercenaries. (are they still called followers???)
  • #6 Maka
    Any news on LAN availability, and is anything going to cost real money on Bnet2?

    Any new developments in the Wizard and Monk's resources?

    ....and.....uhmmm......what is the 5th class? :P

    well, I was talking about the Dfans Questionnaire in the random thread and seth said:

    It has been put on indefinite hold.


    so this could be a good chance to ask some of those questions :D

    http://www.diablofans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23661&highlight=questionnaire

    there's the thread, the questions are in the OP...xD
  • #8 Magistrate
    I'm thinking questions like "what's the fifth class?" and "what's the third act?" are not going to be answered :P
  • #9 Nacho_ijp
    we can try right?? :P maybe we get famous for becoming the guys who asked the question in the right moment!!
  • #10 reform
    Or more likely it will be a question wastedm when we could have asked something they will answer instead.
  • #11 Macros
    They mentioned that respeccing is one of those things that could be a good gold sink, but will that be the only cost to respeccing?

    PvP questions. What is the current build of it?
    Are they planning on arenas? Ladders? Equal voiced duels (Blah)?
    And regarding PvP are we restricted to 4 player games in it?
  • #13 snillum101
    Will you get special items related to any random mini quests that you complete? (e.g. if you kill a tough summoner he may drop a unique staff etc).

    I guess what I'm trying to say is what kind of rewards will mini quests offer aside from being cool :P
  • #14 Magistrate
    Questions beyond this point will not be sent.
  • #15 Makenshi
    Already?! But that's too few questions!!


    Ask them if we'll be allowed to have more than 1 permanent merc/follower at once (in D2 we could only have one; getting the lancer in act 2 replace the archer from act 1 and so on).

    At least in single player, I want to make my AI party when playing alone!

    Gahh, I wish I saw this sooner, I had some questions :)
  • #17 Magistrate
    No, really, the announcement and deadline were both yesterday :P
  • #18 DesmondTiny
    When will the blizzcast be released :P
  • #19 Magistrate
    Not sure, I don't think they've said anything about it yet.

    That's correct, nothing yet.
