    Diablo 3 Beta Patch 6 is 251mb in size and will go live in about 8 hours. It adds some interesting new elements to the beta as well as reworking a fair chunk of the DiabloWikiMonk‘s skills.

    Stackable items can now be purchased and sold on the gold Auction House. These items can be purchased in any quantity provided that the quantity is available for sale, and will pull from multiple auction listings if needed.  Read Azzure’s post on Diablo3Markets for the possible implications of this on trading.

    I’m looking forward to seeing what DiabloWikiAchievements have made it in to these early stages of the game and then earning them before Flux does.

    Also, there will be a full character wipe for the following reason.

    As the patch introduces achievements to the game, and we want to ensure that we’re able to obtain as much testing on them as possible, we will be wiping characters with the deployment of tonight’s patch.

    We apologize for the late notice, we like to give notice at least a week before we wipe characters, but this decision wasn’t made until just a few moments ago due to finding specific testing gaps and issues we believe would occur if we do not wipe characters.

    We appreciate your understanding, and thank you for your continued help in testing Diablo III.

    Thanks to Diablolico x64 for the tip.
