Diablo 3 Seasons: Endings, Beginnings, and Scheduling
Almost everyone on my friends list and in the IncGamers HC West clan is playing Seasons now, so conversation has been focused on that reality. How long will Season One last? Are Seasons going to run a consistent amount of time? How much warning will we get before one ends and the next one begins? […]
Vote: The Biggest Current Issues with Diablo 3?
Checking the blue tracker today and a reply from Lylirra caught my eye. I thought it would make a good topic for a vote, so I read over the first ten pages, tabulating how often specific complaints came up. Of course more replies treated the “single biggest issue” part like old people treat the “ten […]

SC2:Hots Release Dated + D3 Digital Loot

Posted 14 Nov 2012 by

Blade wings and Banner sigil.

Yesterday Blizzard revealed the release date for the first Starcraft II Expansion; it’s coming March 12, 2013 and the beta test is now underway.

That’s all well and good if you’re into SC2, but I mention it here to point you guys to the D3 digital goodies that come with the more expensive versions of the game. There’s a WoW pet, of course, but if you buy the DD or the CE version you get special blade wings (reminiscent of the Tyrael wings that came with the D3CE) for in-game display, as well as a new Zergy Banner logo.

Blade Wings & Banner Sigil in Diablo® III
Grow zergified wings in honor of the Queen of Blades, and unfurl an exclusive banner sigil to herald your Swarm pride throughout the besieged world of Sanctuary.

If those wings look familiar, you’re not crazy. We saw them back in September when they were datamined out of the v1.05 patch.

SC2 gives you wings.

You guys interested? Eager for more Starcraft 2, with or without Diablo 3 digital goodies?


Update: As their presence in v1.05 datamining showed, the wings are ready and functional and in the game already, and if you spring for the Digital Deluxe version, you can add them to your Diablo 3 account right now. Thanks to Nurman for video showing off his new Kerrigan-style Barbarian — who *really* doesn’t match the wings.

Who would? Female DH? Maybe a WD with some weird tentacle type armor? (Added pic of wings on a WD, looking pretty awesome, courtesy of Nurman.)
