Official Site UpdatesPosted 6 November 2011 by Flux
Blizzard’s running a fan vote costume contest. They’ve got 20 outfits, apparently from Blizzcon 2011 (though several have not shown up in any previous galleries from the show) with a mixture of pros and fans wearing them. You can vote on your favorites and ones who get lots of votes are eligible for prizes. The gallery of 20 entrants is here, and while page one looks all SC/WoW to me, page two has there’s a female Wizard (#20), and male Demon Hunter (#19), and Jojo in her succulent Tyrael’s Secret costume (#15). (Christina Sims and her famous female Monk costume is not included in this vote, though she’s pictured on the contest page.)
You can see many more pictures of Diablo outfits worn at Blizzcon 2011 in our Cosplay gallery, including much better views of the Tyrael’s Secret model. Should you desire such visuals.
Update: Much debate in the comments as to whether #19 is a D3 female Wizard or a WoW Priest in lvl 5 gear. Looks like I’ll have to make another version of this meme image.
Update #2: Scorch Hellfire informs us that Christina Sims is in fact present, in #14 as a WoW Paladin in Firelands gear — clearly we’ll have to take his word for it.
Blizzard has updated all the legendary and set items on their official listing… by removing the stats. Bows, for instance. Previously these had (unimpressive) WiP stats, which many of us complained about. Blizzard then added a notice that the stats were temporary, but apparently more major reworking was necessary. Thanks to Azzure for the tip.
In happier news, Blizzard has updated their skill calculator to reflect the skills changed in the beta patch. The new passives are now included as well. Have fun with your hypothetical clicking! Thanks to Ryan, Anthony, and Mike for the tip.
