Diablo III Has Been Released!
After well over six long years, Diablo III is now live in all regions. There is nothing I could ever write here to explain what this truly means! Go, enter the world of Sanctuary!

Important: Error 37 is due to massive logins, keep trying!

Also, don't forget about our massive Diablo III Recap if you have any questions!

Global Play Is Now Live

  • At the Diablo III login screen, click on "Options"
  • Select the "Account" tab
  • From the drop-down, choose which region you want to play in and click "Accept"
You will be able to choose from the following regions:
  • The Americas (North America, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia)
  • Europe (European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, and Middle Eastern countries such as Israel and the United Arab Emirates)
  • Asia (South Korea and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau)
Please note that characters, items, and friends lists do not transfer across regions. Playing on a different region's servers means you'll be creating characters and friends lists specifically for that region, and you'll be accessing the gold-based auction house for that region.

To learn more about Global Play in Diablo III, see the FAQ.

If you receive an error the first time logging into a different region, log out out of Diablo III, exit the client, and then log back in. This should resolve any login errors related to Global Play.

Error 12

If you're experiencing Error 12 when attempting to log in, please let us know in this thread and provide the following information:
  • Are you attempting to log in to a region that is not your home region? (see Global Play FAQ for details)
  • If yes, do you still receive an Error 12 message even when logging into your home region?
  • What is your home region/where are you logging in from?
Please note that Global Play is not yet available, so you will only be able to log in to your home region at this time. We'll provide an update in these forums once Global Play is live.

Thank you!

Important - Templar Bug
Heads up everything, this is important. If you are playing the DiabloWiki.com - Demon Hunter Demon Hunter, do not give your follower a shield until after the Templar kills Jondar. You will be disconnected, and will not be able to sign back on. However, some report that even waiting till after this point, the big will still happen.

so how do you avoid this?
It's a very specific issue. You'd need to a) create a Demon Hunter, B) loot a shield, and then c) trade it to your templar before killing Jondar and hiring him. If you avoid just one of those requirements, you should be able to avoid this particular disconnect.

That is not true though. Yes - I had a DH, Yes - I looted a shield, Yes - I gave it to the templar BUT AFTER killing Jondar and after hiring him (had the dialogue box with the Yes/No option). It was actually a few minutes after Jondar died, as I remember giving my Templar a blue Axe and later on trying to give him a shield.
I'll pass this information along to Quality Assurance. Thanks for the additional details!

How did could this have possibly slipped past quality control?
The will of the templar is stronger!
