Diablo 3 PTR: Bigger and Better Nephalem Rift Maps
The size and shape and monster density/composition of the Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts is one of the main areas of testing during the current PTR session. The big changes were noted in the first days of the PTR, with much higher density in Greater Rifts allowing most characters to instantly boost their highest Grift […]
New Treasure Goblins on the PTR
We’ve talked about the four types of new Treasure Goblins since three of them were debuted at Blizzcon last month, and shown some screens now and then, but I’ve seen all of them numerous times during PTR play the last week or two, so here’s a compilation. New Treasure Goblins on the PTR: Malevolent Tormentor […]

Battle.net Balance has Gone Live

Posted 7 Feb 2012 by

Update: The official announcement has been posted and can be viewed here.

The DiabloWikiDiablo 3 release date grows nearer, but we have yet to have any concrete evidence of a coming date. However, we have been seeing a lot of activity as of late.

Battle.net Balance was a pre-requisite for releasing DiabloWikiDiablo 3, and as I reported a few days ago, they had updated the TOS and added pages to Battle.net Support. You can discuss it more over with Azzure in our Diablo 3 Markets. This is the next in a rather frequent string of updates that has included 100,000 beta keys, Beta Patch 11, and Beta Patch 12. And don’t forget, we’re awaiting on 100,000 more keys for our foreign friends around the world.

Battle.net Balance

This update comes hand-in-hand with the investor call we know will be taking place later this week on Thursday, February 9th.

It seems that, currently, you can load your account with the following options for USD: 10, 20, 50, and 100 dollars.

There is one other option, of course, and that is “other currencies.” Currently, it seems that your currency is locked to the region you have chosen for your account. Previously, and forgive me because I can’t remember who mentioned it in the forums, somebody had noticed that you can no longer change your location without talking to Support and having them change it for you. This has certain implications with the RMAH and the use of them if you are playing with other regions. You will generally be locked with your RMAH, but you may still play with people in other regions at will.

The message states:

One form of currency cannot be converted into another, and some currencies may not be used in some regions. For example, account balance in USD can only be used on the North American regional site (us.battle.net). More Info

Thanks DoctorWitch for noticing that the Balance had gone live.
