There haven’t been any new @Diablo tweets for a few days, but apparently Bashiok was in the mood for tweeting, since he made a number of bite-sized replies in the long-neglected B.net D3 forum.
On likely Witch Doctor play styles:
Bashiok: I think that pretty much described what most witch doctor builds will be about, but what will be more interesting is seeing what other types of builds emerge.
On the perils of excessive hard drive partitioning.
Bashiok: It won’t be 16GB, don’t worry about it.
Bashiok: It’s gonna be bad.
A question from a fan who hasn’t heard of the shared stash.
Bashiok: IThere are no mailmen in Sanctuary.
Bashiok finally broke out of his tweet mode in a reply to a question about people claiming to already have Diablo III Beta invites.
The single legit way to express interest in helping test any-potential-yet-still-unannounced-betas at this time is to use the Battle.net account opt-in, and run the system check tool.
Anyone claiming otherwise is a dirty liar, or is trying to scam you.
I remain surprised and perplexed by Bashiok’s repeated denials of the universal assumption that Bilzzard will distribute thousands of D3 beta keys through contests on partner sites, with pre-orders, via fansites, etc. Given that Blizzard has done that with every other beta test they’ve ever run, especially with the most recent ones for SC2 and the WoW expansions, what’s the point in acting as though it’s not going to happen this time?
