    Friends List from Beta?

    Will my friends list cross over to the retail D3 from the Beta? It'd be nice to add friends/family that will be playing but didn't get into the beta, but no sense if I'm just going to have to re-add them on May 15th.

    No I don't think so. I remember reading somewhere that you have to create a new battletag for the retail version? Real ID friends should be the same.

    EDIT: I think I might be lying.

    While you don't have to create a new Battletag, I'm pretty convinced that friend list will indeed be wiped. There are a few unconfirmed sources that claim otherwise, because friend list should be tied to your Battle.net account. But the beta client is different in so many aspects, I have a few close RL friends in my Real ID list and they were also not to be found in the beta. Seeing as the firiend lists were wiped in character wipes at new patches in the beta, I think it's safe to note down the battletags of the people in your friend list if you want to contact them in the retail version.

    My RealID RL friends from SC2 and WoW were showing up in the D3 Open Beta. My guess is that RealID friends will stay and everything else will be gone.

    Really? Were they in the normal friend list? I couldn't find my girlfriend and she couldn't find me! Friend list was completely empty.

    Err, was there an abnormal friend list? lol. They were in the list when I pressed 'o'. Along with a list of people I'd been in public games with recently.

    Yeah, did not find another friend list as well, or an "abnormal"... Sorry, was a strange way of putting it. But seriously, I find this very weird that my Real ID friends didn't show up. Maybe my own girlfriend defriended me without telling... :(

    In Starcraft 2 the Real-ID friends list carried over from the beta.

    I assume the same will happen with the battletag friends list in Diablo 3.
