    Very cool! I'm glad to finally have real confirmation of hardcore achievements.

    I'm a bit dissapointed with the item list (only thing I looked at as I want to get my Grail sheet up-to date for release). They removed a fair number of items from the game guide some months back, we assumed to update with new graphics etc.

    However the list in the strat guide scans pretty much seems to match what is on the D3 game guide right now. I'm sure a blue post recently said there we're going to be tons more items..yet I can't imagine a strategy guide would ship with incomplete lists.

    I guess it's another one of those things that got trimmed due to time constraints.

    Ramp Up Per Additional Player:
    Description | Normal | NM | Hell | Inferno
    Monster HP Increase Per Additional Player | 75% | 85% | 95% | 110%
    Monster XP Increase Per Additional Player | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0
    Monster DMG Increase Per Additional Player | 0 | 5% | 10% | 15%

    seems legit?

    The monster traits is a bit underwhelming. I thought there would be much more and be more interesting.

    I was going to avoid spoilers, but my curiosity got the best of me. I only looked at the Achievements shots, and just randomly clicked just 2 pages and I found perhaps the MOST spoilery achievement. It's so intense, I'm gonna wrap spoiler tags around it in a spoiler thread.

    Achievement: Obtain Wirt's Cowbell

    OK, OK, it's not story related, but finding Wirt's Leg for the first time in D2, unspoiled, was just so pleasing.

    I am underwhelmed by the legendaries page. So much for the site only containing a "small amount of the available items."

    +5% spirit barrage damage as max... meh
    +14 mp/s is good.
    +33% weapon damage
    +600 hp/s
    didn't found mana/hit >_> so disappointing.

    all in all uninspiring.

    Hey remember that the strat guide probably went to press MONTHS ago. It will already be sadly outdated ;) I wouldn't treat it as authoritative or complete.

    Because those are not scans, contrary to the thread title, lol. They are photos, and not great ones. Impressive that they're readable.

    Agreed. I'll still be holding out hope that the guide's list of legendaries is incomplete.

    Yeah, sorry, I took those with my iPhone since I don't have a scanner! The glare was become a real pain but I was too lazy to take multiple pics of every page... it's enough information to get the point across even if a few minor details are missed.

    Some are some are not. Focus is bit off. Nothing wrong with the resolution, but since the surface is not flat the the sides get blurry.

    Well it's voluntary work. Can't complain.

    So, we're to understand that all the items on the Blizz site are a FULL list of endgame items? Or did I misunderstand? That seems very, very small :(
    Like, so small it just can't be right! Double frown!
