Diablo 3 Now Active for Wow Annual Pass Holders
After a rather long day without Battle.net's website, Wow Annual Pass Holders were greeted with a new Diablo 3 dashboard page. The game is now marked as "Active" with the following message:

Thank you for pre-purchasing Diablo III. We will notify you by email when the game client becomes available for download. You will be able to play on Diablo III launch day.





More Classes
With Diablo III on the cusp of release, people are already looking to the future. Particularly, the idea of what other classes they may add in the future expansions.

That out of the way, personally I really like the idea of demonic or angelic 'inflicted' class. It was something we explored with the demon hunter, who at one time had a demonic arm (reference BlizzCon 2010 gameplay panel for visuals). I think that'd be interesting to explore, especially on the angelic side. I'm really into Paladin/holy warrior classes, and that infused with angelic powers and visuals would probably be pretty close to my perfect class I think. I just don't really know what implications that has on lore.

The monk hits it pretty close, though, and the barbarian is definitely out for noble (if not selfish) causes. I'm personally in love with each of the five classes we have right now, and am still torn on which one to play first on launch day... (leaning towards WD)

Yes, the only beta hardware currently active is based in the US. (Source)

I need your confirmation on something non announcement related, are the Weeping Hollows formerly the Cold Plains?
No, those are two different areas. (Source)

Easter Eggs
Fair enough. I'd recommend not over thinking easter eggs too much, though. :) (Source)

  • #3 Enkeria
    I was wondering when next Curse video I could ignore went online! :P
  • #4 Azriel
    I really hope they do a Pally class. I actually want to use swords and shields.
  • #5 Drachar
    You can use a sword and shield on a Monk though :P

    as i said in a previous thread, this is good (the D3 purchasing thingy), means game will be live IMO within 6-8 weeks

    ok im in a foul mood but i have to say it this time, is it me or is PICO pretty crap, im not gona bash her but her head needs to stop bobbling & hope she learns to read the cards or the auto-queue sooner than later, gona have to stop watching it

    a girl talking about games isnt as cool as you think, for the people over 30 we dont give a shit, give us a guy or a woman who talks to us about the games instead of just reading it off a card

    ok im starting to bash her, ill stop, my dog is very sick and im pissed off :(

    I reckon a tinkerer/alchemist class would be pretty cool. I know the Demon Hunter already has some traps but I was thinking more on the lines of altering their physical attributes with bionic instruments, kind of like that younger brother roboted up in Full Metal Alchemist.

    With different forms perhaps it could function in a fashion similar to the druid in diablo ii with its werewolf werebear forms.

    Ok, whoever is in charge of the tweeting, TY for the near heart attack
    "Diablo 3 no active for wow annual pass holders"
  • #10 Mives
    SIGN OF RELEASE!!!!!!!......ok, admittedly it's a small sign but dang it, i'll take it

    Necromancer has the best chance of coming back out of the remaining 6 classes from Diablo 2 (He's not a WD, because he is full on undeath with different types of magic. Curses aren't based off powders. WD is all superstition.) Just look at all the lore associated with the Priests of Rathma. There's no way he isn't going to be involved with Sanctuary, which are tasked with the job of maintaining the balance of Sanctuary, using magic provided by Trag'Oul. That's a very big obligation if you ask me.

    yeah I read that tweet as annual Pass people could already play the game, lols.

    Anyway meh wake me up when we have a date kkthx.

    I've only watched 2 of them now. I agree, she's very unengaging and scripted. But I think Riot Games' Nikasaur is 100% worse. Go watch a League of Legends summoner showcase... see how long you can stand watching it...

    "Diablo 3 Now Active For WoW Annual Pass Holders" is probably not the greatest way to describe how the field is no longer grayed out but still cannot be downloaded. I know my heart started racing... :facepalm:

    Anyway, I had to laugh at a match-up when it said "Steve (Minecraft) vs Deathwing (WoW)". I know Steve is going to win that one since Deathwing isn't exactly a popular guy. As for a fight between Thrall and Tyrael... Sorry ex-warchief, but you's no what ya used ta be, mon.

    marking it active w/ no download is such a tease

    Yes this little gimmick of getting in the petite/grunge so-so model types with gamer tag names to do roundups news or reviews from a card in a forced manner is trending far too much....

    sign of.... realease.... getting old.... dying........
  • #18 SparkimusPrime
    I really wish they'd stop putting those videos at the bottom of these things. Every time I see that girl's face, I hear her voice in my head and I get pissed off immediately.

    and LOL Steve is gonna stomp Deathwing. Thrall and Tyrael shouldn't be in the same vote against one another this early. I wanted to vote for both =/

    I just read the "Diablo 3 active for Wow annual pass holders" and read through the whole title to see any important information like "RELEASE DATE IS HERE!!!" or "THE GAME IS OUT!!!". You can rest assured that when any of these happens there will be a very informative title with capital letters and big fonts.

    About the Curse girl, she's a very cute girl tallking about games. For most of the teenagers gamers she represents the hope to find such a cute girl that likes games. Pity that she is just on the internet with a billion followers drolling on every second of her's videos. And most of them doesn't know how to get to know girls in another way (or at all). There is really no need to see the videos other than see a cute girl talking about games, since the information she gives us is nothing new nor deep.
