Despite its age and network issues, I've been playing quite steadily since the ladder reset. As usual, I have a Summoner as my "builder" and he's halfway through Act 5 Nightmare. This season, I'm definitely planning to build a Blade Fury Assassin, although I'm sure she'll probably have most of her points in Death Sentry. And although I was having a ball with Sacrifice long after I had access to Zeal, the name Zeuziel still screams lightning striking from the sky, not a guy who kicks serious butt after he cuts himelf.
I've had a lot of luck with my runs and I have a decent assortment of low/mid gear to get my characters through normal without getting overwhelmed. The assassin, Epique_Phaile has a full Cleglaw's and owned Duriel in less t…Read more >

I've been trying to get the "Bashanishu" achivement pretty much since I got the game. At first I was like "meh he'll turn up"...boy was I wrong. So I had some runs at it, I tried to remember taking the blade with me every time I got to the Dahlgur Oasis and I already played with all the characters so I've been there for like 20 times. Not even close...
After hunting achivements for a while I looked for it in all kinds of forums to see if there's a guide or something I'm doing wrong. Turned out it just the most annoying achivement known to mankind. Grinding doesn't even start to describe it. Today I said enough! I was at it since noon and finally got it 10 minutes ago (the time now is 2:30am around here). I only had 2 breaks (l…

I've encountered a weird thing during my play. I managed to get a "Pulverized" call out for like 15 skeletons and only got about 20 XP points, and afterward I only got the call out message (for "Destruction", "Massacre" etc.) and not the points, until I leveled up.
The no XP thing has happened to me before, but I thought it was some kind of bug. Does anybody know about this thing? is there a limit for extra XP per level or something?Read more >

I'm gonna keeo making more edits though, and since there's still lots of stuff to edit I guess there's still plenty of opportunities for me to contribute more :)
In other news, I'm wondering about the Diablo 3 expansion (mostly as to just how the Great Evils will return since the Prime Evil's defeat. Then again, the Black Soulstone never actually broke so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Also, WHY BLIZZARD WHY, Deckard Cain was killed off by some Disney villain hasbeen reject. As a character that has played a major role in the series I personally believed that he should have died much later in the story or not at all. Killing him off that early just ruined the game for me.Read more >
Yay! I've finally reached 50 edits or this wiki.
I'm hoping to reach a hundred by the next month or two, so to this end I hope that there will be plenty more stuff for me to edit :)Read more >
So, you think you know a lot about Diablo lore? Prove it!
Be warned - the quiz is very hard and requires knowledge of the info provided in the Diablo and Diablo II Manuals, as well as various bits of lore that appear in the games themselves (through NPC conversations or books).
I haven't included any lore from the novels because not every player has read them.
Here is the quiz itself - QUIZ.
And here are the answers... but please, don't look at them until you have tried to answer all questions on your own - Answers.

I don't remember my dreams often. Most of the time they just lapse into the subconscious and wither away, like the fragile constructs of a slumbering mind they are. It is irrelevant whether they are the greatest of pleasures, or the the most sinister of horrors, they all share the same fate.
But there are exceptions. Like tonight, when I experienced both.
I remember bits and pieces. An underground installation, a bunker, perhaps. Concrete walls covered with white paint, with sharp angles everywhere, lit by tolerable white lights. Corridors extending into complete darkness. I would feel fear, normally, but here, I did not. I explored. I looked. And the place was empty.
Walking through the endless maze of a place I never seen before, I came up…

Please note, all fansite creators and/or fans, the Diablo Wiki has a policy against advertising fansites within articles. We regard this to be spam with little difference from any other type of spam.
This does not mean we reject fansite links anywhere and everywhere. There are a few places where links are acceptable, these include:
- Forum topics

Fansite spam will be given slightly more leniency than typical spam as we will offer you the benefit of the doubt. This is essentially a three strikes policy: If you add a fansite link to an article, it will be removed. If you put it back, you will receive a written warning on your talk page.

Over the past couple of months we have been developing and testing a related videos module on some wikis like Harry Potter, Hunger Games and Halo. During these tests we have been tracking the number of video plays as well as collecting community feedback. We are now ready to expand the rollout to the rest of the site, and we are starting with wikis that there are the most videos for - which includes your wiki!
The videos we have are fully licensed from video partners we have developed relationships with. They include videos such as trailers, famous movie/TV clips, walkthroughs and behind the scenes interviews. We currently have video content from Screenplay and are working to create partnerships with other vendors, including Hulu, soon. …Read more >
Hi there guys, just to notify any editors that might be interested; Special:SearchDigest has been enabled on the wiki after I contact Staff. Basically, what it does is shows you what terms are being searched, and how many times it has been searched. The most searched terms are on the top, and it goes in descending order.
The Digest is for any administrators or experienced editors that want to increase the usefulness of the Search feature, and gives us a chance to make our content be found more often. It also tells us what the readers want in terms of pages, and lets us know what terms to redirect to pages on the wiki. To make a redirect page, just go to the page, and add to it. Here is an example of a redirect.
Anyway, just wanted to let ev…Read more >
Hello fellow Wiki'ers!
It hasn't been very long since I came on the wiki but I have noticed that a lot of articles lack profound detailing, and most edits are centered around game stats. What about the lore, the visuals, and the RPG aspect of the game?
Most of the wikis I had visited beforehand had projects - groups of people that would concentrate their work on developing a certain overlooked aspect of the wiki. I havn't found any project pages on here, and I'm wondering if anyone would be with me in creating projects for Diablo Wiki.
Examples would be a Locations project, to describe to their best the different locations of the vast and beautiful world of Sanctuary, both visually, historically and statistically, and while most Monster pages…Read more >
Wikia is headed to Comic-Con! That’s right. We’re pulling up our Internet stakes and traveling circus-style to Southern California where we have a number of fun events planned (meet-ups, parties, interview opportunities, etc.) for the duration of the convention.

For those of you hunting for achievements, and were unable to complete Act I because of The Lyceum being bugged and not spawning.... we have our long waited patch! Thats right, Blizzard has fixed the bug preventing The Lyceum from spawning, and it is now available in the Southern Highlands! In order to quickly farm for this spawn, Accept the last quest in Act I, Return to New Tristram. Once logged in, take the portal to "Highlands Crossing" and walk across the bridge. You should be able to find it (if its spawned) north of the bridge.
This fix has alos allowed players to get the "Villager's Journal," which is a randomly spawned lore book found within the Old Ruins (aka Old Tristram). Before this patch, the journal was thought to spawn in T…Read more >
Hi wiki welcome to my blog. So while I was searching for an article about something ( I did not search here cause it said its article stub ) and then I found a website with that article and the big surprise is the name was diablo wiki too. I thought it was this website but it's different. The address is www.diablowiki.com. So I was hesitating if it was a rival or the creator of this created another website.

So, as almost everyone who's been playing Diablo 3 since Tuesday knows... the game servers have been buggy, laggy and almost unplayable. So what better way to spend your Friday night? Well, Sarkoth on the US battle.net Daiblo forums found a fun way to keep it cool....
The fun started 11 hours ago, at approximately 1pm PST when Sarkoth decided to post in the forums that he was giving away 1 MILLION GOLD. Thats right. All you had to do to win was post in the topic thread at 12am PST, and if you were the poster that posted at midnight, all the gold is belongs to you!

With the first few weeks of Diablo 3, many people have already have gotten to Inferno Difficulty. Any tips or tricks for mobs/bosses/builds leave here!Read more >
As we all know, Diablo 3 has been out for two, almost three weeks. Running through for achievements has never beem more difficult with The Lyceum in Act I being bugged (confirmed by Blizzard). Within The Lyceum, quest lore book "Villager's Journal" is said to spawn.
With this taken into account, currently, five achievements are bugged and unobtainable until Blizzard fixes this. The patch on Tuesday, May 29 did NOT fix this bug ( Patch 1.02), and there have been no further comments from Blizzard on when this dungeon/book will be fixed and available to players.
This is the list of achievements that are currently unobtainable as a result:

Hi I am Jasmine aka Thea1029 and this is my first blog. I would like you to know that I am new here but not on Diablo III, I am already on nightmare difficulty act II so you could ask me some question by commenting below and I will try to reply back immediately.Read more >
So, I’ll take a few moments to say that after viewing the cutscenes on YouTube, that I am quite content to eat my fair share of humble pie in regards to Diablo III’s story direction. My other points stand, but I can’t gripe as much about the storyline. There is one little point I’d like to have an answer for and I'd like to see if anyone has some clues for sating my curiosity:
In Act III, you defeat Mephisto and shatter his soulstone in Act IV, which will apparently prevents his return.
In Act IV you defeat Diablo, and in the ending cinematic, the player shatters his soulstone which should apparently prevent his return.
In Diablo III, Diablo makes his return and wrecks the High Heavens before being cast down by the hero.
So, how does Diablo …Read more >
I think the third game, despite the many people who have complained about one point or another, is actually pretty decent.
But there is a plot hole that most people haven't yet realized: Why didn't Diablo just destroy Imperius, Auriel and Itherael? And come to think of it, why didn't Tyrael join the nephalem in the final battle against the Prime Evil?
Diablo himself told the player that Auriel was captured by Rakanoth...but what I don't understand is why Auriel was captured in the first place - if the demons were strong enough to overpower her and so intent on crushing the angels' Hope forever, why didn't they just finish her off? They must have known that there was at least a chance that she and Itherael would be set free...Read more >

Hey guys! Like many of you, I am playing and loving Diablo III. I'm liking how achievements work, especially the co-op ones, since when you get a co-op achievement it automatically gives the the single player one.
As a multi-player inclined game, I was wondering if anybody has heard anything of clans starting to spring up. If not, who better to start one than the editors of the Diablo wiki!
I was thinking about starting a private clan page on the wiki. You could post your username and ID, and then players would just add whoever they see on the wiki. After a while we could scheduale stuff like max party events or boss kills and PvP (is there pvp? I havn't heard anything yet, but there HAS to be something on the way.) Perhaps we could get a ve…Read more >
Now that Diablo III has been released, we will surely be getting an increase in traffic here, which will also mean more vandals who think they are funny (sorry guys, you are not).
I am looking to recruit one or two editors to admin positions.
To even be considered, you must have been editing here for no less than two months and have made at least 50 edits. These are the minimal standards, more is better.
It will be a bonus if you have bought Diablo III, intend to buy it very soon, or have been in the beta (but this is not necessary).
If you fit the requirements and are interested in the responsibilities, reply to this blog or drop by my talk page.

You won’t find any actual subtle essence while playing Diablo 3, instead you’ll farm magic quality gear, return to town and salvage it. Currently the ratio is 1 to 1, meaning you’ll get 1 Subtle Essence for every magic quality item you salvage.
One of the best ways to farm Subtle Essence is by repeating the first part of the Legacy of Cain quest lin in Act I. Do this by setting your quest in the menu screen and than enter the game. Immediately talk to Leah and run off to the cemetary. Head north with Leah and into Adria’s Hut. Go into the hidden cellar where you can immediately kill Captain Daltyn and loot a magic item. Leave the game ASAP and don’t forget to turn in the quest to get a extra ~60 gold.
You can repeat this quest about once a m…Read more >
I was reading earlier that there would be a listing fee for the “Real Money” Diablo 3 auction house system. This real money auction house system has got me personally very excited, and will be very interesting to see how it plays out.
Previous to this latest update provided by Azuriel it was known that you would get a certain amount of free listings each week on the diablo 3 real money auction house.
The cost per SOLD item will be about $1.50 USD — and there is no fee if the item does not sell. This eliminate all risk from the selling process in Diablo III and should be a welcome addition to what could very well be a revolutionary way of making money playing your favorite game.

- Diablo 3 enUS Beta from ThePirateBay – FAKE
- Diablo 3 Beta
- Diablo 3 Demo
- Diablo 3 Prerelease
- Diablo III [FULLGAME] 2010
Activision-Blizzard had a 2011 Q4 financials call that included an overview of what might be coming in 2012. GameSpy says that Activision-Blizzard's CEO, Bobby Kotick, thinks Diablo III will release sometime in Q2 of 2012 which is a positive suggestion. This seems possible from the reduced change in the recent Beta releases. As someone who has been playing the Beta, it has gotten more stable and they are fixing bugs. I'm a little concerned with what appears to be the beginning of removal of features (most minor, like gold fetching companions), but if we're this close to a release (a matter of months), that kind of thing is to be expected.
Now if only Blizzard would open up more of the game beyond Act I.
