Malthael Animated Wallpaper
Friday we posted about the new Reaper of Souls wallpaper, featuring Malthael. Today we'd like to bring attention to its animated counterpart. YouTube user and DiabloFans member Tuskrat has created this absolutely awesome video, that people can use as their background.

He also has a fine collection of other Blizzard themed animated wallpapers, including the one featuring all classes last year, Arthas, Chen Stormstout and Illidan Stormrage! Visit his channel in YouTube for download links.

In order to install a video background on your desktop you'll need a freeware program called Dreamscene (does not work for Windows 8). After installing it simply right click on the video file as select "Set as Desktop background", just as you would with an image.





Diablo Classes Fan Art
Forum user Laccer has created some really nice fan art for the 5 current classes in Diablo 3! Here are some of his creations below. You can find all of them in his topic, located here. Don't forget to drop him some feedback!

    Oh, it probably does. It's not like having a notepad or a text editor open ;)

    But you'll have to test it and see whether it gets in the way of your daily activities. If you feel like browsing, gaming, checking news, sending e-mails, editing photos/videos, alt-tabbing and chatting on facebook become slower, you probably don't wanna use it.

    You have to download DreamScene, then download the link in the youtube video, then use DreamScene to set it.

    I'm too lazy for all that, I'll just settle for static wallpaper :)

    No they don't. American prices mostly exclude taxes because they are state-specific.
