I have so much Diablo news I am going to break it out into a few posts over a day or so. The above linked video is a 5 minute recap of the Diablo story till now. If you are interested in a 50 foot view of Sanctuary and the sordid history of Tristram and why you shouldn't build your city right next to the place you imprison one of the main prime evils, check it out!

Blizzard recently blogged a Diablo 3 launch day preparation guide:


They are missing some off my Diablo 3 prep list:

1. Come up with a good fake illness to call in to work with.
2. Stock up on dollar store 5 hour energy(the real ones are expensive yo!) for the 16 hour blitz you will give the game after it boots up.
3. Stock easy foam bats and nearby pillows for when Battle.net goes down and you CANT PLAY
4. Make no weekend plans as you need to power level all 5 classes to 60. GET ALL THE LEVELS!

Level all the classes to 60? I'm going to need to forge a doctors note...

I wonder if that's possible. Like how many hours to max level? Power leveling wasn't allowed in the beta so it's normal grind. Hmmmm.

I just hope it takes about as long to complete as Diablo 2 in a normal run-through. Without power leveling or giving uber gear it was a decent amount of time to finish, especially on 3 separate difficulties. I would be fine with it taking a little longer as well.

I agree, long games that don't drag are fun.

don't forget perma-death hardcore... or did they remove that in d3?

Hardcore characters are included :)

It's too bad you have to unlock hardcore. I'd rather play HC from the beginning.

Wikipedia says you unlock hardcore after level 10. Hopefully that's how it goes!
