Inferno, Enrage, and Launch

Bashiok has been out in force recently, answering questions around the official forums. A few topics of interest have come up, one of which I can speak to personally. The three topics are regarding enrage timers for bosses, potential CE copies at the midnight launch in Irvine, and gear-checks in groups for Inferno.

Guest Article: Diablo III Loot Source/Type Breakdown, Part II

A couple of weeks ago site reader Varquynne wrote a guest article that documented every single drop of items, gold, potions, and more in a full playthrough of the Diablo III beta. In addition to his write up, he created an awesome infographic that tallied up everything in pie charts and such. Like most of you guys, I found that feature very interesting, and today’s follow up improves on that one enormously.

More Sign of Release Rumors, Plus Jay Wilson Teasing

Imminent release rumors continue to swirl today. First from our German partner site Diablo: Gamona who are reporting that Blizzard’s European distributor has reserved warehouse and shipping space for huge deliveries of Diablo III, and may in fact already have boxes in storage, ready to transport to stores. The Google translation is a bit unclear, but Zippoexe, a German speaker in our forum thread, gives us the gist of things:

Diablo 3 Boss Runs = Sub Optimal Strategy

While special boss monsters (such as the Skeleton King in the beta) will pop higher quality items for their quest drop, your character only gets that once. (Though beta testers have found exploits to farm this repeatedly by joining games with lvl 1 chars.) That’s a special case that’s only possible in the beta, though, and no one’s going to farm Leoric in the full game.

D3 Cryptozoology #2: Killian Damort

Yes, ladies and gents, it’s time for another Cryptozoological Creature Feature with your pal Grug. This time I delved deep into the infamous Tristram Cathedral. After meeting and subsequently abandoning a talkative chap named Kormac, I proceeded down to the fourth floor, where I was fortunate enough to experience a chance encounter with Killian Damort, Deadeye Archer.

Act Bosses Confirmed?

We all know that although we fight the Skeleton King in the Beta he is not the Act 1 boss, brought forward in the beta to give testers something meaty to fight as a finale. The boss of each of the acts has been heavily speculated, even the final boss is open for debate. That could all now be settled with the discovery of another image post in the Beta Forum, apparently boss profiles that will appear in your profile once you have defeated each. Each has a picture and the Act number above them.
