I find not only in the World of Warcraft but in also the Starcraft and Diablo Community that Blizzard is attacked by it's fans because it isn't listening to it's audience. Well I'm here to state that Blizzard is listening to us and some people are acting ignorant to the whole situation. I'm upset to see that they are under seige because of simple mistakes and yet the people state as if they aren't doing enough.
Blizzard is underway to create multiple games that are new to them such as Hearthfire and Heros of the Storm. A big statement that Blizzard is listening to us is that they are creating WoD to gain it's old original population back and I'm excited for that! Diablo is getting their expansion as well! I'm intrested in grabbing both game…

In addition to the interview with Jesse McCree and John Hight for Reaper of Souls, we also managed to secure an interview with Julia Humphreys, Senior Producer of the console version!
Miguel (M): Do you consider the console to be on equal footing with the PC?
- Julia Humphreys (JH): I definitely think so. One of our major goals when bringing it to the console was we believed there were legions of console players out there who might want to play Diablo but, for whatever reason, never picked it up for the PC. They weren't PC gamers or they didn't have a PC to play it on; they just had their preferred platforms. I think we've done a tremendous job of reaching those people and giving them an opportunity to experience the Diablo franchise and Blizz…

Hello, Diablo fans! We were lucky enough to snag an interview with Jesse McCree (Senior Level Designer) and John Hight (Production Director) at this year's BlizzCon. We sat down and talked with them about the upcoming expansion, Reaper of Souls.
Miguel (M): Seems the biggest thing in Reaper of Souls (RoS) is the adventure mode so far. Can you speak to what you were trying to solve with the adventure mode?
- Jesse McCree (JM): We look at what the players are doing and how they're playing the game. We like to be efficient and get the rewards in the quickest way possible. The current way to do that is to find a spot you think is good and play it over and over again. That's not necessarily the most fun thing to do. How do I break myself out of that…

With BlizzCon fast approaching, we're interested in any questions players might have about Diablo III (Reaper of Souls or the console). We'll have some one-on-one time with the powers that be for the game, so if there's anything you've been wanting to ask, something you're wondering about, or even some constructive criticism, we'll be happy to pass it along.
Feel free to post your questions here and, come interview time, we'll pull from them and post the responses by Sunday.Read more >
As of the October 29th update, Wikia will be storing its images in a new location. While it updates, you may notice that uploading has been disabled for a short period of time. The time for this period is not known.
"Later this week, Wikia will begin transferring images to a new file storage system. This will be done on a wiki-by-wiki basis, with the smaller, older wikis getting updated first. When the script is transferring the images on your wiki, uploads on your wiki will be disabled. This process will be done quietly on the backend and there will be no major disruption to your wiki other than the disabled uploading. Uploads will be disabled for a small period of time, usually less than an hour."
Just a short message in case you'…Read more >
Blizzard is having a design a legendary contest. Over the next few months, staff take players through the all the different design stages behind bringing a single Legendary item to life, from concept to creation to iteration, all the way through animation and implementation. Leading up to release of Reaper of Souls, players will have the opportunity to not only weigh in, but help guide development on a Legendary item that will be implemented and playable.Read more >
So apart from the two paladins, what other character have I been building on? I have three more, but there are only two that I've been spending any time on.
Level 68 Sorceress: Enchantress
She's made it, albeit with some trouble to the Inner Cloister of Hell difficulty, and she's a bit difficult when facing bosses in Nightmare. I still don't think this is bad because I haven't put points in much outside of Enchant and Warmth. I've dropped a single skill point in both Teleport and Static field, but she's a pretty solid character considering I have 28 skill points left over. I was thinking of choosing Frozen Orb as her secondary attack, and given that Lightning has three synergies and that's not including Lightning Mastery, I think I'll be…Read more >
Hello everyone! Just a public announcement to say that the Read More section of the wiki (usually at the bottom of each article) has been disabled after I chased up staff about it. If you disagree with this change, please mention it to myself or another admin and we'll discuss the benefits of the feature.Read more >
Apparently wikis have two default emoticons. I have replaced these and added five more.

Someone came by yesterday and mentioned that many of the monster articles are blank. I quickly mentioned that it's because there's a lot of, well, Diablo III related information to be put in, but wondered if he doesn't have a point about making some headway. I'd take on editing those pages if it weren't for the fact the monsters section is a big mess. Some articles have charts, others have copypasted information because it's the same monster type, and some monster articles are huge because the monster type has been used in every game.
I think that it would be good to have a separate page for each monster type with a chart for every version of that monster, and a separate article for each game, with a redirect link at the top, possibly a …Read more >
I've been playing along with several characters, and I think that although retirement may be not too far away, I'm still finding these builds challenging. Without further ado, though, I'll post what I have as work-in-progress. Keep in mind that I only trade for runes to upgrade exceptional armor and weapons to their Elite versions.
Level 75 Paladin: FoH, PvM.
Yes, I know. The FoH paladin is a PvP build. I figured I'd horse around with one because I've done another Conviction build before. He's a decent caster, but last night I needed my Summoner Necromancer to eek him past Duriel. He'd completely own my Act 2 Hireling with a Bonehew, Duriel's Shell and Naj's circlet, and me running around with resistances all in the red, it didn't end…Read more >

Yesterday a large number of videos were uploaded to this site, supposedly by several different editors, including some who are inactive and myself as well.
These contributions are false attributions so dishonestly applied by a Wikia bot.
Sometimes I really hate the stupid things Wikia pulls, and this is one of them.
Apparently Wikia is updating videos across many wikis, and somehow think it is appropriate to forge editors' names to the contributions, even if said editor hasn't dropped by in years.
So it isn't a sudden resurgence of inactives making a return, it is only Wikia giving credit where it is not due, and at least for myself, not welcome.Read more >
Wow, trying to remember what happened...
Necromancer made it into Hell Difficulty at level 62. It's a good thing I'm not playing hardcore mode as I died a few times trying to make progress in Act 1. I can solo, but the going is a bit slow with my hireling wielding Malice. He has Duriel's shell, which was a nice find, but to be more effective, he'll need some crushing blow. I was saving an Amn and a Tir for Strength, but I wanted to save that for something like a 2-socket Hyperion Spear or somesuch, as at the moment I have a Partizan. As if an Amn and a Tir are hard to find...
My Assassin made it to Nightmare. I did die a time or two facing Diablo, but on the whole, she made it to Baal without too much trouble. What I need to do, howev…Read more >
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.

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
- Your user page
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. If you ignore the warning and put it up a third time, you will be banned from the wiki in th…Read more >

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 >

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!

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, 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!

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:

- No Stone Unturned
- Wanderer of Tristram
- Taking Notes

- A World of Pain

Belial is the lord of lies wich you can fight at act II. In this blog I will tell you some good skills that you can use in different classes.
Wizard is my current character now( just saying ) and I defeated him in one attemp. Most of Wizard's attack is long range.
spectral blade ( impacful blade )
disintegrate ( convergence )
frost nova ( deep freeze )
diamond skin ( mirror skin )
energy armor ( absorption )
archon ( arcane destruction )
blur, glass cannon, illusionist
In defeating Belial I use combination. Using spectral blade you can attack him near with diamond skin. Disintegrate is for attacking without diamond skin but you can use energy armor for some protection. Archon is very powerful, while in archon the secondary skill has more damage plu…

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 >
