Barbarian - Whirlwind Runed
With this video, we would like to show you the runed versions of the Barbarian's DiabloWiki.com - Whirlwind Whirlwind. Disclaimer: please keep in mind some effects or graphics may be missing or not be working correctly!





Bashiok on the player limit
Bashiok put out a few tweets today about player limits.


Official Blizzard Quote:



Hey, regarding your post on Dec-12 about graphics, will the player cap will be increased since it was limited by graphics before?
I'm not sure what you're referring to, but in any case no, the cap for players in a game is and will remain 4.

But that doesnt explain the 3vs3 in arena when thats 6 players. I dont see the logic.
Arena maps are a specific size and design, and there are not hundreds of enemies, just players.

reffering to JW saying a while ago that limit was capped bc too much graphics going on & you recently said they arent intensive.
Ah ok, I see. Yeah FPS/performance is not the same as readability. We have a 4 player limit for readability.




Book of Cain signing video
As you might be aware a signing for the Book of Cain was held last week and the likes of Chris Metzen, Micky Nielson and Flint Dille attended. The guys at The Worldstone Keep managed to take a video of the event. You can see the writers of the book talk about it and some future plans for similar project for their other franchises, as well as making a short but interesting Q&A Session.





Book of Cain Art
Artist Adrian Smith published two drawings he made for the Book of Cain - the first is a portrait of DiabloWiki.com - Lilith Lilith and the second depicts an uknown giant demon.

    Does Curse have any intention of acknowledging the existence of Mooege, the platform in which they use to show off these displays?

    why does the barb always has an axe when he whirlwinds, but his equipt weapon is a sword. doesnt make sense and looks terrible.
    oh and the effects are all pretty boring

    Combine whirlwind with the passive that lets you regenerate fury, instead of losing it and you'll be spinning, spinning, spinning your way to freedom in each dungeon.

    This ability really makes me wanna play barbarian. I've been all about the witch doctor thus far, but that one looks very cool.

    not really with it costing so much per second... you'll still only be able to do it for a few seconds. lol

    if you spec everything towards having/generating fury and put together a set of gear for the same purpose then perhaps you could almost always whirlwind

    it really depends on high lvl gear mods

    uhm no. wrong. it cost 14 fury per second and even with battle rage golden and WW golden your not going to crit every hit and it will still drain your fury too fast even at max with gear and skills increasing max fury and say you got to full fury before using it. you would only be able to do it for ~15 seconds at absolute max and best case scenario and you'd be 100% drained of fury at that point.

    If you did it at <20% health, and had your passive (abilities take no fury at 20% or less health), you could spin forever. Tack on a damage reduction passive and avoid health globes and that'd be pretty fun. Probably not a strategy that'd pan out very well; but certainly might be interesting.

    would be impossible to avoid all health globes since your passing THROUGH enemies.
