Blizzard have revealed the schedule of events for the two days of this year’s Blizzcon. You’ll want to start with the opening ceremonies, where they will most likely reveal the fifth character. That’s how they did it with the Wizard in 2008 and the Monk last year, at least.
Immediately after that the Diablo III goodness starts with an hour of Diablo III Gameplay where they will showing off the new build and information. There’s nothing else scheduled for Diablo III that day but the next has an hour long session named Crafting Sanctuary. I had originally jumped to the conclusion this was about crafting (wishful thinking perhaps) but as Ninyu pointed out it’s more likely about building the world of Sanctuary. Later that day is an Open Q&A on the main stage. We can hope for additional information from this as there will be questions about newly revealed information, however, there’s usually a fair few questions for which a lot of you already know the answers.
Blizzard has posted the panel descriptions on their Blizzcon site. Only 2 Diablo III panels for the “biggest Diablo 3 Blizzcon ever” is disappointing.
