BlizzPro's Diablo

 

Since the advent of Diablo III, players have been able to collect bonus goods that are attached to accounts, but don’t provide any in-game bonuses or power. The community has come to collectively call these “cosmetic items”. The first such item was the promotional Angelic Wings, which one could equip on the back of characters they created for added flair. These wings are obtained by registering a CD-key for the Collector’s Edition of Diablo III. Over time, more items like these were added and in particular with Reaper of Souls and Patch 2.4.1, which introduced the Menagerist Goblin and hidden transmogrification items, it became increasingly difficult to keep track of which ones you had still yet to find and from what source it could come. Enter official forums MVP (Most Valuable Poster) MissCheetah. Working tirelessly to compile and collect her own in-game goodies, she began to track all of the different attainable cosmetic items and where ...

It looks like the developers have been hard at work on potential optimizations of the game for Patch 2.4.2, but they need our help to test things out. A call to arms has been issued to do a server slam on the Patch Test Realm (PTR) starting today, August 25th. Blizzard has done these in the past when they’ve identified possible methods of improving the live servers, but don’t want to push those improvements without first having everyone give it a go on the PTR. Do keep in mind that there is no new content available for testing during this PTR, but there is an incentive with an increased Legendary droprate of 2000%. Continue onward for the details on how you can participate:...

With all of the recent, newfound hype surrounding a potential Diablo II HD remake, along with the fact that both the original Diablo and Diablo II were available for play on the show floor at Gamescom last week, nostalgia is running high for old battles gone by. Some of you may have never even played the earlier entries in the Diablo series or, conversely, you played the crap out of them, but simply have forgotten your lore lessons. Well, one community member who has always expressed his love for the story of Diablo recently returned to producing content and one of his first videos is an amazing treatment to the earliest sections of Diablo lore. Moldran’s video can be found below and should prove to be enlightening whether you’re a battle-scarred veteran, new nephalem, or somewhere in between. Enjoy!...

 

Gamescom 2016 Recap

by Stephen Stewart on

Last week, Gamescom 2016 arrived to Cologne, Germany. Lauded as “the world’s largest trade fair and event highlight for computer and video games”, this mega event usually occupies the attention of hundreds of thousands of people in-person over the course of five days while encapsulating millions around the world via content created by the show itself and both media and companies in attendance. This year’s Gamescom took place from August 17 to August 21 and, of course, Blizzard Entertainment made a return to Germany to highlight all of the latest and greatest excitement across their multiple IPs. Amazing announcements such as the reveal of Legion, the upcoming expansion for World of Warcraft, as well as Reaper of Souls, the current expansion for Diablo III, were made at past Gamescoms, so anticipation was running high for what could be in store this year. On what was styled as “Day 0”, Blizzard released a video wherein ...

Earlier today, a small update to Patch 2.4.2 on the Public Test Realm (PTR) went live. With the few changes listed, it’s clear that things are wrapping up. Especially since we already know the end of Season 6 and start of Season 7 dates, we can guesstimate that Patch 2.4.2 will likely arrive on August 2nd, 2016. Below, you’ll find the latest adjustments. Pay special attention to the Energy Twister change; this just may be the final adjustment/fix that  ends the reign of the Twister Wizard meta....

Senior Technical Game Designer Wyatt Cheng took to the forums earlier this afternoon to announce a couple things. The first being that the development team had made a mistake on the cosmetic items such as Steffon’s Heavy Lance, Mace of the Crows, and the Harvest Pennant. They were so incredibly rare that they never dropped – and it was due to some bugs not allowing them to. Because of this error by the development team, they are doing a 48 hour Double Blood Shard Community Buff for this weekend. So get in the game and get to that farming – you only have 2 weeks left of this season and this weekend would be a great time to help you make those final pushes you’ve been wanting to. You can read more about the bug in patch 2.4.1 and the upcoming community buff below:...
