Blue Geared Barbarian - Inferno Diablo Kill
Some players are trying to find new and fun challenges to take on in Diablo III. GaaraonYoutube has posted a video of doing just that by killing Diablo while only wearing blue gear. Keep in mind this was all about having fun. You can watch the video below. We have also included all the gear into one picture for easy viewing. Make sure to check out his thread to leave any of your thoughts on his video.
Scheduled Maintenance - Tuesday July 31st
We have a long maintenance period tomorrow so be ready. Starcraft 2 is seeing a rather large patch as well tomorrow, so some battle.net features (such as web services) will be down. We will update this post if this should be extended for any reason.

Security Update: Dial-In Authenticators Removed
Some interesting security news today; The dial-in authenticator has been removed as an option under the battle.net security options. It's very important to not confuse this with the mobile authenticator like a lot of users had. This authenticator did not give the same level of security as a standard (physical or mobile) authenticator.

If you’re currently using the Dial-in Authenticator and want to add any of these security options before August 15, you’ll first need to remove the Dial-In Authenticator from your account by following the instructions listed here.
We’re fully committed to account security, but please keep in mind that it’s ultimately a team effort. While making use of the available security options can go a long way in helping to protect your characters and items, it’s also important to be aware of the other things you can do to help ensure your account is as secure as possible.
