I imagine the loot he'll see will be pretty simple. I imagine it'll be much like the loot you see at level 15 in WoW or in act 1/2 of Diablo 2. So I dunno if items will be all that interesting in the beta - remember it's only the first few hours of act 1.
You deserve it, Scyber! I'm very happy for you, and for the progression of this site.
Hopefully more than a few of us will get the chance to join you in the demonslaying before December. Looking forward to the coverage, if I don't get in!
