[UPDATED: DEBUNKED] Mysterious Red Beam Legendary Pops Up In-Game

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Sjago showed up for an update in the thread, admitting the image is fake and he was trolling.
IMPORTANT: None of this is confirmed by Blizzard - it's still unclear what the item is, why it appeared and if it appeared at all.

NOTE: If you'd like to see what the story looked like, click the 'Spoiler' button, but it's hidden behind a button due to proving untrue.

A very, very interesting legendary sword has popped up in Sjago's T2 Rift earlier today and the screenshots he took are extremely curious.

I guess i found something....which isnt even supposed to drop yet. no way to ID it, it wasn't doing anything, even when using cains book thingy. Ive never seen that damage range before. Zoom in all you want, analyze it, its not edited.

After this short explanation Sjago shared the intriguing images:

The sword is unidentifiable, but our forum members already succeeded putting the pieces together and by the looks of it it might just be Deathwish - a datamined sword that is rumored to be a part of the Ladder-only items.


Chrome Extension Calculates Elemental Damage In BNet Profiles

A very useful Chrome extension, made by redditor mplourde, adds the Elemental damage and Elemental Elite Damage to the profiles on Battle.Net, so that you don't have to calculate them yourself or go to other sites. Mplourde is planning on upgrading the add-on so that it will calculate set bonus damage as well, but it's helpful enough as it is due to the information on BNet getting updated every time you relog unlike sites with stats.


New Short Story: "Middlewick"

Above him, the wind—stiff and unseasonably chilly for early autumn—wrestled through the canopy of leaves and branches, ushering all seven of the corpses into a lazy sway from their nooses."


Young Dalya's life is shattered when a zealous bishop descends on her town, destroying the only family she has ever had. But is there truth to the holy man's quest to root out corruption, or is it merely a brutal abuse of authority? Read "Middlewick" by Erik Sabol in the Game Guide to find out!

    Time to find a fan site who specializes on real info.

    It's hard to believe that a 'trustable" site can go full-retard on something this obvious... I'm sure it brought them the traffic they did it for, though!

    You actually never saw such beam?!
    Didn't you ever dropped a leg along the rift boss?!
    If you did, because of the shards effect, the beam color change...

    So, was sure it was a fake...

    How is the red beam-troll still on the front page? I usually don't complain about this site, I quite like it - but updating that it's fake instead of removing it completely, and ONLY leave the part about posting a fake? That's weak, dudes. Don't keep an admitted liar and troll on the front page.

    Gonna have to admit I don't care to see the red beam post still on the front page....

    Narf!

    Guys, don't even bother reading the short story. It's a long winded way of stating the obvious: There are zombies on Sanctuary! Who knew.

    I'd like to explain things a little bit: I didn't remove it, because I didn't want people to think we'm sneaking out of the situation and trying to cover it all up.

    Now I hid it all behind a 'Spoiler' button plus an additional note and I hope this will be some kind of a middle ground. The thing with highlighting threads on the front page is we're used to people on our forums being genuine and helping each other and the community, so we just weren't prepared for such a serious troll. Of course, I had put an "IMPORTANT" with warning that this is in no way confirmed from the beginning and this is mostly a lesson for us :)

    I really hope you can forgive me/us and if something is bothering you, drop me a PM. Also, as you see, I'm ALWAYS reading the comments, your opinions are EXTREMELY important and I'm sorry for hurting your trust. I also felt very hurt when the guy appeared to say he's been trolling :(

    So, can you forgive me? <3

    Was just frustrating seeing the story - with image and all - and a small note saying it was fake. I understand your reasoning for not removing it completely and I think your solution is reasonable. I still love your site. Keep up keeping up!

    I dont trust a browser extension that has access to data going to/from *.battle.net. Sounds like a good way to get your credentials hacked if you log into battle.net while this is installed. I'm a little surprised this site is promoting something like this.
