Randomization and level design in the future of Diablo 3
Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games. Diablo 1 had four dungeon types with quite different maps for each area, though all were just big squares with different arrangements of the pieces within them. (The Hellfire […]

Diablo 3 Collector’s Edition – Wings and Dye Clarification

Posted 9 Nov 2011 by

Diablo 3 Collector's Edition Dyes

Smokin'

The DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Collector’s Edition announced officially at last month’s DiabloWikiBlizzcon was well received; it’s one of their best value to date I think. Two of the in game extras you will get are two special color dyes (Bottled Cloud and Bottled Smoke <- mouse over those, wheeee) and glowing Tyrael wings. Bashiok was good enough to answer a couple of follow up questions on these earlier today.

How often can we use the dyes and wings?

The CE dyes are infinite in their use. Keep them forever, dye as much stuff as you want “Cloud” or “Smoke” colored. The colors are unique to the CE.

The wings are an item you hold in your inventory (don’t take up an equipment slot on your character), and it’s a toggle. Use to turn on, use again to turn off. They’re awesome looking, and stack with other class effects like Shadow Power and Archon.

I see, and are these 1 per account?

It’s 1 per account. If you want to trade to another character you’d just want to put it in your shared stash before logging out. Same with the dyes.

And if you’re a hardcore character you may be wondering what happens if they’re in your now defunct character’s inventory when he expires, so was Vermithrax.

Ah, uh, er… hrm. That’s a good question. We’ll bring that up in our next meeting.

And now that’s in writing it’ll follow him around until it’s answered, so chop chop.
