If you haven't checked, we updated yesterday's news posts with information regarding the release date sign. BestBuy was told to take down the sign by a GM. Also on this note, it was indeed confirmed the sign was a BestBuy product. However, today Bashiok came out as clear as everyone wanted with the following statement:
Official Blizzard Quote:
Diablo III does not have a release date. Any store or person claiming otherwise is guessing.
Demon Hunter - Elemental Arrow Runed
Today we have the Demon Hunter's Elemental Arrow. As always, please keep in mind this is not 100% what it will look like live. Some effects/graphics could be off. Please keep this in mind!
Wiki Digest #6
PhrozenDragon has brought us our weekly updated on the wiki!
As many of you have undoubtedly noticed, the wiki Main Page has received a graphical overhaul. The design features some increased space usage, diablo news on the main page and some helpful links for people who whish to get involved in the wiki.
As always, Apoc has made some interesting additions to the wiki, such as information on Map Generation and Procedural Generation, which talks about the random map elements of Diablo III. He's also taken to making the wiki more asethetically pleasing by adding monster and map images to articles.
New user Ebonmourn has dug into the wiki and updates some of our legacy parts. The Immune Monsters (Diablo II) list, which lists all monster immunities in the game and how to break them, has finally been completed and is now complete. He also began completing the various Diablo II item list pages, adding affix lists to them. So if you're still wondering what affixes a http://diablowiki.com/sword" class="wiki-link">http://media-diablofans.cursecdn.com/attachments/16/736/wiki2.gif" alt="DiabloWiki.com - sword"/> sword, or any other Diablo II item can spawn with, wonder no more.
I myself have taken to slowly update the wiki with all the new lore information we've received from the Book of Cain. The work is far from complete but there have been some noticeable additions to the wiki already: check out any of the Great Evil such as Mephisto, or minor pages such as that of Vischar Orous. If you want to keep track of what pages are being updated, bookmark this page. Any pages I update with Book of Cain references will appear here.
Jinshin has also helped out with some lore additions to the Horadrim and Mephisto pages.
I also want to give a shoutout to all of our minor contributors who may not have made big changes, but their work is still much appreciated. These are Verity, Sojourna, Tioproza and a host of anonymous editors who left nothing but their IP adress behind.
What's Being Discussed?
Ebonmourn has started a discussion regarding how we should handle embedded headers in the wiki.
