New Information , Hardcore, Option Tooltips, Clock, End of Beta Contest, 5000 bugs, Error 3022

Update: The new info is here!

Official Blizzard Quote:

A few more changes have made their way in to Diablo III beta patch 10, including the removal of Scrolls of Companion and Scrolls of Reforging, and we’ll be updating the patch notes to reflect that.

In both cases these are features we felt were underdeveloped and just not quite good enough for the game in their current state. The companion pets felt like they were mandatory to maximize play efficiency and some of the pets were too cutesy for the gritty, dark world of Sanctuary. Neither of those are issues we felt like we could solve without a lot of additional work, and we’re trying to close in on a solid release date for the game, not move further away. When weighing these systems against releasing the game, we decided to cut these scrolls and stay on track for the game’s release.

We think we can make companion pets into a much cooler system (both mechanically and visually), and evolve the reforging scrolls into a more meaningful system at some point in the future. For the time being, they will not be in the initial release of the game.

Error 3022
People have been getting Error 3022 when using the AH. Blizzard has posted a quick fix for this error.

Official Blizzard Quote:

Hey guys,

If you are getting Error_3022 when trying to use the Auction House, this is to let you know that Blizzard is working on the issue.

For now, here is the current work around to get your account working again.

1. Go to the website and log in.
2. Go to your billing address.
3. Click Edit when at your billing address.
4. Do not edit anything and press Save.
5. Attempt to use the Auction House again.

For some reason, people with valid billing addresses are being locked out of using the Auction House, even though the Beta is not using your billing address for anything as Beta Bucks aren't real money. This work around should help you guys out.
