Diablo 3 Passes South Korea's GRB. "Many More" Beta Invites, Book of Cain, Wizard's Hydra, Screenshots

Diablo 3 Finally Passes South Korea's GRB
update - Bashiok posted with some information about the status of the AH for South Korea

Official Blizzard Quote:

So, I was right, they have an auction house that uses Battle.net balance, which is separate from the gold auction house. There are some details I'm still fuzzy on because the Korea Battle.net balance works a bit differently from ours.

In any case, it won't be the currency-free option you're looking for.

It seems Diablo 3 officially has a rating for South Korea, Rated 'M'. However it seems this rating comes with the lack of a RMAH. We will keep you updated with any information. (source)

Bashiok on "Many More" Beta Invites
Bashiok replied to a user on twitter about more possible invites.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Will there be any more beta invites for diablo?
Yes. Many.
this is something we know little about. Can we expect these new invites to come shortly after the writeup by Jay Wilson?
We generally don't announce beta invites beforehand, provide invite numbers, etc. It just makes people go insane. (source)

Wizard - Hydra Runed
Today we have the Wizard's DiabloWiki.com - Hydra Hydra spell. We had a first look at this at Blizzcon '10 but a few things have changed. Now even more so than in the past, keep in mind some of the effects and graphics are not fully working at this time. (for example, no poison cloud appears on the ground, The eleictric hydra does not fire, and so on.)

Electronic Version of Book of Cain?
In case you are stuck on pure digital media, Blizzard is looking into a digital version of the Book of Cain. While not mentioned, a narrated version by Deckard Cain would defintely add to the appeal.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Hello, is there a digital version of Book of Cain that I can buy from an online retailer?

@Diablo No, only a hardcover is available. We are exploring digital possibilities but nothing for sure yet.

Beta Screenshots
In the first screenshot, we have a DiabloWiki.com - Wizard Wizard who has been frozen after killing a Champion Skeleton with the frozen attribute. Then we have a DiabloWiki.com - Witch Doctor Witch Doctor and his mongrels attacking a horde of Zombies after dispensing of an electrified champion. Finally, we have a DiabloWiki.com - Barbarian Barbarian attacking a Carrion Nest in the Den of the Fallen, a random dungeon that is a nod to the Den of Evil.
