4.2.2 Live on Servers
2011/08/30 at 2:16 PM
4.2.2 just hit the live realms--it's a real quiet one in terms of a patch, just miscellaneous technical fixes that couldn't be hotfixed in. However, the good news is that with 4.2.2 off of the PTR, it's time for 4.3 to start. We'll be watching out for it and we're definitely cooking up a storm of surprises for 4.3 coverage.

News Round Up: Diablo III Community Site, Model Updates, and More
2011/08/29 at 2:31 PM
There were some blue posts last week and today that mostly dealt with the onslaught of questions about transmogrification, the Darkmoon Faire, and model updates. Yes, model updates--with everything else being revamped, including the long sought after armor customization, a lot of people have been pretty curious about the prospect of new models coming someday.
Highlights from today's news round up:
Replica items may mean that items from DMF may just be art skins, rather than the original gear--so it may be impossible to tell replicas from the real thing.
Death Knights will get their stater gear back, probably set up in Archerus, so non-DKs can't steal their unique armor!
Diablo III community site was launched!
Murkablo was confirmed as BlizzCon's pet reward, but everyone already knew that from when he was datamined--right?
Some character model discussion by two wonderful Community Managers.

News Round Up: Transmogrification Clarifications, Void Storage Updates, and More
2011/08/23 at 7:24 PM
We have a lot of random posts for transmogrification lurking about from this week and last.
It's probably easiest to simply sum them up:
Heirlooms will be eligible targets for Transmogrification--you won't have to look bad while leveling up!
Mainhand can only be applied to mainhand and offhand only to offhand.
The jury is still out on "silly" items. They are debating whether or not you can use fun offhands like frying pans, fish, and so on.
While not planned for day one, greys and whites might eventually be an option. The wording used by the Community Manager implies it's not set in stone either way.
There was also a clarification about void storage (no, those prices are not set in stone) and a good PvP post session with Zarhym covering everything from twinks to deleting warlocks from the game forever. Oh, don't worry--he was kidding.
That's still under discussion at the moment. Right now, Legendary weapons and Heirlooms probably won't be eligible, while some Bind on Account items probably will be eligible. It's not set in stone yet though.
I'd like to
News Round Up: Transmogrification Will Require You to Own Items, Blizzard CMs Have Lives, and More
2011/08/18 at 9:32 AM
There were a lot of blue posts yesterday and I think it's only fair that we post them up. They answer a lot of questions in general about these new features that were announced such as transmogrification.
These posts confirm that you will need to own the items already in order to transmogrify into them--one of the most discussed aspects of the new system. This will be a letdown for some. It makes perfect sense as it will encourage players to revisit dungeons and raids that many have never seen, but for those of us who raided when they were current, it is a letdown if we have deleted our sets. I know I deleted all my sets come Cataclysm simply because I had zero bank space for anything thanks to all the WotLK sets in there. I will now have to recollect them all it appears!
Patch 4.3 Sneak Peek at Gamescom 2011
Everything we've already heard, but from Bashiok, who is undeniably much cooler than random internet transcripts.
The gamescom 2011 convention is underway in Cologne, Germany, and the first day kicked off with a few big patch 4.3-related announcements for World of Warcraft. Here's a quick summary of the features and content tha
Blizzard at Gamescom: 4.3 Announced, Deathwing, Armor Customization, Diablo 3 News, and More
2011/08/17 at 10:31 AM
So things just got really serious--4.3, which was a huge mystery, is now pretty much unveiled at Gamescom. When speaking to
, Tom Chilton was very open in just how much content the patch would have for WoW players. " has a whole bunch of content," he said, "three dungeons for five player instances and a new raid instance culminating in the Deathwing fight."
Of course, it's not just dungeons to be excited for. Those ethereals we mentioned a week and a half ago? They're for what most of us only dreamed in our biggest dreams and Blizzard previously said was impossible: armor customization. "We have a wealth of armor sets we created that people no longer use," Chilton said, explaining why they had chosen to add it in.
What we know about 4.3:
Deathwing in 4.3
: "The Deathwing fight will be the most epic boss encounter to date, including a battle phase that takes pla
