    deadmau5 Halcyons-ascent-iconBlizzard has announced the time and line up for the Play Your Way Thursday live stream, which will feature Nevalistis, a player, D3 dev Don Vu, and famous DJ Deadmau5, probably playing without his huge mouse headgear.

    He’s a living Easter Egg in the form of the DiabloWikiHalcyon’s Ascent legendary amulet, and has been a Diablo 3 fan for years. He tweeted his battletag when talking about an old Barbarian last year, but his account now shows 2 hardcore Wizards, one seasonal and one not, both over P400. And as the blue says below, they’re going to be doing Hardcore this time on the live stream. Good luck with that, Nevalistis!

    Here are the blue details about Thursday afternoon’s show:

    While the master of magic, the Wizard, prevailed in our last Play Your Thursday community vote, we were unfortunately unable to sync up with V3dun#2884 for our upcoming livestream. Thankfully, runner-up Majier#1230 has raised his weapon in service and will be joining us this Thursday, October 16.

    But that’s not all, nephalem. We’ll also be joined by a very special guest for this week’s show—deadmau5!

    Here are all the juicy details:

  • What: Our fourth Play Your Way Thursday livestream
  • Where: http://www.twitch.tv/diablo
  • When: Thursday, October 16 @ 2:00 p.m. PT to 3:00 p.m. PT
  • Who: Brandy “Nevalistis” Camel, Majier#1230, Joel “deadmau5” Zimmerman, and Don Vu
  • Why: To kill ghosts n’ stuff.
  • For this particular stream, associate game designer Don Vu raised the bar and challenged us to jump into the Hardcore Season with Halcyon himself, Joel Zimmerman. See just how long I’ll last running V3dun’s “Void Ray” Wizard and learn more about Majier’s “Sweeping Thunder” Crusader as we Rift our way to HC glory.

    May our deeds of valor be remembered!

    We’ll be pounding out a transcript as the show goes on, so check for that shortly after the run ends at 3pm, assuming they don’t all wipe at 2:30 and spend the last 30m sobbing inconsolably while staring at the Hall of Heroes window. If so, perhaps some music would cheer them up?
